        Anxiety is just your mental energy in a different dimension, that feeling is your body wanting to get bad that energy

            Really disappointed after watching this and recovering from benzo addition that this "medical professional" Could just blaintantly say that Xanax addiction is all in your head.... comes to show how many "medical" professionals are uneducated on the matter of Xanax/benzo addiction and I really feel for anyone going threw this after watching this.

              Good quality red meat seems to cure my anxiety. But keep it to only 1 to 2 servings a week. I also cut back on sugar, no fast or processed foods and nuts like walnuts and fish are also good. A good quality magnesium supplement and vitamin b is essential

                "Billion Schemes" Music Video Parody is about Trump, the wall, and other Trump subjects. (Anxiety-causing? Or no anxiety?)

                  Having anxiety whilst also living or growing up in "the hood" is torture.

                      My mom is a psychiatric nurse. She thinks and she was trained that "Monitoring" human behavior is exhibiting whats going on in the mind. She uses monitoring now as an excuse now to be nosey and spread and gossip about anyone who doesnt agree with her about certain things.

                        "The Power of Now" by Eckhart Tolle is the book that offers good pointers in being present and soooo much more.
                        I hope to see and hear Eckhart as a guest on the show.

                          I’ve never had anything that I would have called anxiety but I thought about a year ago I was having a heart attack. Turns out they told me I had a panic attack. I still feel like that’s not the greatest explanation because I wasn’t panicked when I had this experience but I did have a lot on my mind regarding things I can’t control. Haven’t had the same experience before or since.

                            But isn't fear also a great tool to help is identify whether something is good or dangerous for us? If you aren't afraid of fire then it would burn you.

                              The reason Benzos are not prescribed as often any longer is due to that fact that even short term use dramatically increases the risk of dementia and memory loss. This is within all age groups. Plus the serious risk of addiction after only 30 days.

                                I’m trying to apply this to addiction. I know it can apply I just don’t know how.

                                  No self no addiction.
                                  The self is an idea based in thought, can thought have addiction?
                                  Addiction may appear but its happening to no one,( no self ) its just appearance.

                                No self no fear sounds like some fucking NPC-cope tier bullshit if you ask me. Detaching yourself from the experience of being alive in any situation completely negates the entire point of being alive at all. Fear is a motivator. How you choose to react will define you.

                                        Fear of...

                                        ...*insert narcissistic emotion of choice here*.

                                        Let me help you...

                                        ...*embarrassment* makes you self-conscious, as does *pride*.

                                        Now, imagine living your life to make your parents feel proud...


                                        As in, fear of...

                                        ...think: 'After Earth'.

                                          Most of anxiety comes, not from fight or flight, but from freeze pattern, and staying there, not moving and rolling from that void, so roll off your anxiety ppl. Easiest way is to just imagine a wheel rolling and slowly going, and not standing in place like our awearness.

                                                This guy is full of shit. Medication does help millions of people. It's not a fix, but it makes life livable until you figure things out. Really, what this guy is promoting is dangerous for people who are feeling hopeless. He's just some hippy nobody asshole who doesn't have any real education. Lots of words he puts together to convince you he's making a point when he's not. A master at BS

                                                    I was suffering from daily panic attacks from ADHD & Sensory processing issues, tried benzo's but all they would do was make me feel like I was 10x my size, like I was wearing a massive space suit which would freak me out even more so I just refused to take them. Stimulant ADHD meds have halted these attacks however.

                                                          I had anxiety attacks as a kid. If I focused in on 1 specific sound, like the fan, the shower, the AC vents pushing air. It would throw me into an anxiety attack and I would feel like the world was coming down on me. The worst one was my old bell rattling alarm clock. Woke me up and sent me into the worst one. I ran to the bathroom. Sat in the fetal position until it went away

Everyone here commenting about having anxiety can do the same. I know it's easier to pretend like there's nothing you can do about anxiety but, trust me...there is. It's not going to be easy but, living in a hell created by your anxiety is worse in my opinion.

Like if someone pulls a knife on you in the street or if you're about to crash with the car. The body is doing the right things while you're basically an onlooker. Put yourself in a situation where the smallest mistake will kill you and you'll be amazed at the perfection you achieve. If you do the same thing in a simulated safe environment you will probably fail horribly trying to think about what you are doing.

When I go to store to buy tomatoes, I imagine big mouth (like from Langoliers Stephen King movie) on the tomato and that it wants to eat me with these terrible teeth. I stopped buying tomatoes and focused on the pickles instead. Same thing. It literally wants to eat me and I start screaming in the store. Everyone is looking at me thinking what is wrong with this freak, but I see pickles and tomatoes eating me.

                                                                                      People who "suffer" froearn to reframe given the right skills. Unfortunately, the pharmacutical industry has been very successful in selling anxiety as a chemical imbalance that can only be treated via expensive.
