The Anxiety Shift - A Seismic Change In The Way We Treat Anxiety

read moreThink about it. Imagine what you could do in your life if you didn’t have the constant worry. Imagine what you could do if you didn’t have the sense of doom Imagine what you could get done if you weren’t always frozen with terror about your future I bet you could do a lot more than you do now. Right?

I mean, how can you plan any kind of future the way you want it when all you can feel about your future is uncertainty, worry, and dread?

The reason you get these feelings of anxiety, worry and dread is that when you suffer from anxiety disorders you are caught in what I call the “Anxiety Cycle”.

It’s because it is that damned cycle that keeps you rooted in your constant loop of anxious thoughts, physical agitation and tension, and sense of dread.

Anxious thoughts trigger a fear response, which releases fight-or-flight chemicals which then produce the physical symptoms of anxiety that we know so well.

These chemicals put your body under stress and the physical changes to the body in turn can create anxious thoughts and feelings of dread which then of course create more physical fight or flight symptoms and then…oh I think you get the picture. I am betting that you have experienced this kind of cycle yourself.​

And most people will tell you that anxious thoughts are the start point that set the whole thing a-turning

After 2 years of study I have found that there is a common physical issue that triggers the anxiety cycle and most people don’t even know they have it

This means that if you can treat the real physical cause of the fight or flight response, you can break the anxiety cycle and drag yourself out of the perpetual cycle of dread and drudgery.

It also means that it doesn’t matter how many therapy sessions you go to, if you don’t tackle the underlying physical issues, you will never be completely anxiety free.​

Doesn’t matter what anyone else says, Anxiety and the feelings of woryy and dread that come with it are not created in your head. They are caused by chemicals released because of a PHYSICAL trigger

So if the problem is not all in the mind and is found elsewhere in the physical body, then where exactly is it?

You probably have a good idea of the answer already as this part of the body is so inextricably linked with anxiety that the two very often have problems at the same time – I am sure you have experienced "butterflies in the stomach" for yourself

Yes the gut. That ridiculously long tube that runs all the way through your body from mouth to anus​

Now the gut being a cause of mental illness is certainly not a new idea, even hippocrates the father of modern medicine said that “All disease begins in the gut” and Philippe Pinel, considered to be the father of modern psychiatry said that “The primary seat of insanity is generally in the region of the stomach and the intestines.”

Of course just because they said it, doesn’t make it true, but it just so happens that they were actually on to something, but somehow the whole idea got lost as the medical head honchos decided to separate mind and body and run in different directions.

In fact researchers have found that not only does the gut send around 9 times more signals TO the brain than it gets from the brain, and contains over 3 lbs. of influential bacteria, but it also holds around 100 million neurons in its walls.

Some are even calling the gut “the second brain” which is fair considering it has more neurons than the brain of a mouse.

Armed forces of course that can be great at protecting a country from threats, but throw in a crazed power hungry dictator, and said army can quickly become a threat to its very own people.

Now while you may or may not have heard about this connection between the gut and anxiety before, the scientific evidence is growing rapidly and becoming more and more indisputable every day… Read more…
