Ways to Stop Panic Attacks and Anxiety


Visitors: 262

It is really amazing what your brain goes through whenever you are experiencing extreme anxiety or a panic attack. When people experience extreme anxiety or panic, the activity in their brain moves from the front of their brain to the mid brain. Studies have actually shown that the blood in the brain moves from the front of the brain to the midbrain. The front of the brain is where we have the ability to make decisions and to rationalize thoughts. The midbrain is known to have the mechanisms for survival such as fight or flight.

You are probably well aware that a panic attack is a ‘fight or flight’ response to a perceived threat. What this research tells us, is that people's mental activity during a panic attack is suddenly moving to the mid brain, resulting in the heightened state of fear and panic.

The problem is once the panic attack begins and that heightened state of fear starts, it is difficult to calm yourself. In order to restore calm you need the brains mental activity to change. This is why deep breathing is very ineffective in helping people control a panic attack.

The control center is your brain and that is where the change needs to happen. During a panic attack your brain has moved into panic mode and to restore order you need to learn how to switch your mental activity back to the rational part of your brain. Therefore you need to learn a technique that will allow you to do so in a split second, no matter where you are or what you are doing.

Sounds complicated? Well it isn't. When someone feels reassured that they are safe the mental state goes back to the forebrain. This “One Move" technique teaches you to feel safe in a simple and easy manner. The One Move is called so because it is in effect a movement of mental activity. It is a technique that moves mental activity away from the impulsive mid brain back to the forebrain.


*Having your chest feel tight as well as having trouble breathing?
*Having anxious thoughts during the day?
*The feeling of being on the edge in situations that never really bothered you before?
*Thinking you are having a heart attack when you were just anxious?
*Rarely driving because you are afraid that any minor traffic hold up will start an attack?
*The feeling that you might lose control over the slightest thing?

Do You Ever Feel Any Of These Bodily Sensations?

1. Shortness of breath?
2. Dizzy Spells?
3. A racing heart with tingling in your arms?
4. Hot flushes that are followed by waves of anxiety?
5. Worrying to the point of obsessing?
6. Feeling lost?
7. A fear that the anxiety will push you to the brink?

These and other uncomfortable sensations are all too common. The truth is you do not have to suffer from panic or anxiety attacks again.

Have you ever thought how anxiety keeps you from doing some or most of the things you fell like you want to do?

Just imagine for a moment that you could do the following with the fear of anxiety.

*Planning holidays.
*Never fearing to leave your home.
*Trusting your body is not in danger.
*Socializing with people and never thinking you might have to leave.
*Going about your business without anxious thoughts in your mind.
*Giving a speech.
*Watching your close relationships improving.
*Feeling confident to fly , drive or travel by any means you choose.
*Stopping panic and anxiety that keeps you up at night.
*Doing the one thing you love that panic attacks may be stopping you from doing.
*Being free from unsettling thoughts.
*Get clarity of mind and peaceful thoughts and feelings.

Learn how to stop checking yourself every five minutes to see if anxiety is present. Watch how friends and family comment on how relaxed and peaceful you have become. Become a source of encouragement for others who experience anxiety and show them the simple steps they can take to end their anxiety

Some of the things that this program will NOT make you do are:

After using this technique, you will no longer have to spend money on doctor or therapist visits.

You will not follow a time consuming 30 step program.

Anxiety techniques such as ‘deep breathing', positive affirmations, or distraction.

It won't take forever to feel the results. It only takes a few seconds to implement.

This technique does not require hypnosis or NLP. It is an advanced technique born from traditional psychology that anyone can apply, regardless of how long they have had anxiety.

Please take time out and go see this program. I know it will help you like it has helped me.

I was taking Xanax and Cymbalta for a period of time before I started on this program. I no longer take either and feel 100% better. Please go to PanicAway .
