Beta blockers for anxiety?
Dealing With Anxiety
Supplements For Anxiety?
Before we start i would like to state that i do not promote taking any prescribed tablets for any anxiety driven symptom including depression. You may ask why? Well i suffered severely with anxiety and depression for over 6 years and none of the tablets the doctors prescribed helped me one bit! I believe that the tablets they prescribe only mask the under-lying anxiety and basically just make you dopey (too put it bluntly)! This includes beta blockers, citalopram and zoloft. Also i believe they are very addictive and no one wants to rely one tablets for the rest of there life.
In this article i will show you how i beat Anxiety,OCD, Social Phobia and many other anxiety driven symptoms all through the power of creativity,excitement and sometimes a little boost from the natural green tea extract, L-Theanine.
I will break down anxiety and show it to you in its true light, you are not ill and only YOU can cure yourself no matter what any doctor or psychiatrist tells you.
Basically, people who suffer from any anxiety driven symptom, whether it be OCD, Social Phobia or De-Realization are very creative people. Our brains are very creative and if we are not challenging or motivating ourselves then that's when we start developing anxiety driven symptoms.
You may not understand what i mean yet but i promise you if you read through the rest of this article it will help you a lot. I will go into more detail on how you can cure all your anxiety driven symptoms with creativity and excitement.
I will show you how you can cure yourself of all anxiety driven symptoms, exactly how i did 1 year ago. And most importantly regain your life!
Dealing with anxiety?
I hate the phrase 'Dealing with Anxiety'! No one should have to deal with it. I believe it is completely curable if you have the right mindset and are willing to try new things.
I have put together my story/guide on how quickly and permanently i cured all my anxiety driven symptoms including OCD, Social Phobia, De-Realization, Obsessive Thinking, depression and many many more. I believe this will work for any anxiety driven symptom including depression
My aim is to help others by telling my story and to give you a simple guide as to how you can do the same. I promised myself that if i could find a way to stop feeling those horrible symptoms then i would share it with the world.
Also before i get started i would like to point out that i am not a doctor or a psychiatrist but i do believe that my experiences will help a lot of people regain there life out there. I mean how can a doctor or someone who has never experienced these symptoms give advice or prescribe any tablets, its crazy!
If you are reading this i'm guessing you are experiencing severe anxiety symptoms and are wondering if you are going crazy or you have something wrong with you?! Like me frantically searching the internet for miracle cures or tablets...Also getting scammed by people who know nothing about anxiety and only interested in taking your money! Its sick..
So please bear with me, read through this. Understand why you are feeling like this and if i manage to help at least one person then that will make me very happy indeed. When i first started experiencing severe anxiety symptoms i couldn't find the answers i needed so i am hoping this can give some people out there the answers they need!
Anxiety Disorder Symptoms
OK so lets have a closer look at anxiety and its symptoms. I suffered severely with 'Pure OCD'. The obsessive thinking/worrying. Although i suffered with most of the below symptoms i believe all of them can be cured with the same method
- Social Phobia
- Intrusive and Irrational Thoughts
- Pure OCD (Obsessive Thinking)
- Panic Attacks
- Social Anxiety
- Brain Fog
- Racing Heart
- Fear of losing control
- Feeling detached
- Feeling of doom
- Feeling trapped
- These are just some of them i could go on forever!
However you are feeling now, whatever symptoms you have, whether it be feeling on edge, OCD, Obsessive Compulsive thoughts, fear, depression, butterflies, you name it! They are all caused by anxiety! Over-active anxiety!
Everyone has anxiety in life but if you are here then i'm guessing your anxiety switch is constantly turned on like mine was!
People with over-active anxiety are very clever people! Have a look at OCD for example. The sufferer knows that switching the lights on and off constantly is completely irrational but they have to constantly fool themselves to why they are doing it. People who suffer from anxiety are very very creative people!
If you don't channel that creativity into something well....Creative, then that's when anxiety starts creeping in and starts creating those horrible symptoms!
My Anxiety Description
As i was saying, people with over-active anxiety are very creative people who need to be constantly challenging there mind and skills. If you are not creative and passionate about things in life your mind gets bored and starts creating anxiety driven symptoms like obsessive thinking, worry, social phobia and so on....
Have a look at it this way you should understand what i mean. We will take OCD and Obsessive compulsive thoughts just for example...(Although all anxiety symptoms apply to this rule)
So here we go, OCD and Obsessive compulsive thoughts are all driven by 'What If' thoughts.
- 'What if' i don't turn this light switch on 'X' amount of times, this will happen
- 'What if' i don't clean this every minute, maybe i will get a terrible disease
- 'What if' i mess up
- 'What if' i hurt someone
- 'What if' this job interview doesn't go well
- 'What if' i left the oven on, i need to go back
I could go on forever with the 'what if' examples but i'm sure you get my drift by now and how all anxiety symptoms are caused by worry, fear, 'what if' questions and a lot of creativity!
People with over-active anxiety always come to the worst conclusion in there mind straight away which causes more and more anxiety/fear and only adds fuel to the fire, the 'what if' questions. How many times has that worst possible outcome in your mind actually become reality?.........
0 Is the answer isn't it?!
You see, people with over-active anxiety are very clever, and very creative people that need to be creative and passionate in life.If not there mind gets bored and starts thinking up worst case scenarios. Which in turn creates anxiety, fear and worry, and the whole cycle begins! The anxiety and creativity is driving your symptoms like, obsessive behavior, social phobia Etc.
It is all driven by 'what if' thoughts (Very creative huh)??
The Only Natural Anxiety Cure!
Write down a list of all the things you would like to learn or start up again. It could be anything, whether it be Football, Cards, Drawing, Cooking, Dancing, Singing, Writing, Boxing, absolutely anything! Even stamp collecting! Come on be creative!
Make sure you have a list of at least 6 and start doing some of the things you like! Everyone can fit some hobbies into there life style! As i said there are so many different things you can do to be creative/passionate.
Creativity/Passion is the only anxiety cure! It will stop all the 'What if thoughts' so the cycle cannot begin....
As i said i am not a doctor but this seriously worked for me! I promise you, you don't have to feel over-active anxiety ever again if you follow these steps-
- Write down a long list of hobbies/passions you would love to learn/start
- Start doing these hobbies/passions right away. Everyday if its possible
- Even if its just 20 minutes. Anything!! Although the more the better
- Get excited about doing these hobbies/passions everyday!
- Think about your hobbies/passions everyday. Excitement/passion is the exact opposite to fear/anxiety! See where we are going now?
- Be creative in your head everyday about your passions, what your going to do next Etc.
- If excitement is the exact opposite to anxiety then you need to be more excited everyday and do more creative activities/hobbies!
'Try it now just for 5 minutes. In your mind think of a passion or hobby you want to do, get really excited about it. Think of all the joy and excitement it will bring you. really be passionate about it and notice your anxiety reducing dramatically'
So basically do as many new things everyday, start up old hobbies again. You can even start writing like i am now. I am really enjoying telling you my story and am so happy to be helping others. (I hope). If you are creative and passionate about the things you do in life then anxiety and fear will have no place anymore. You wont even have room for anxiety. Passion and excitement is the exact opposite to anxiety!
Even if it is just for a week follow all the steps, get your list, start doing creative hobbies/passions, get excited about your new hobbies everyday and watch your anxiety fade away! Think about your new hobbies and passions every minute if you can and get excited about new things you are going to try. ( I cooked a Jamaican fish recipe the other day for the first time)
I guarantee you will want to carry on with this method after a week and after you have noticed the results. Anxiety really wont have any place in your life.
I started up drawing everyday. Something i loved and had stopped doing for a long time. I started drawing all kinds of different things, from cars to animals. Getting excited about drawing and generally being really passionate about something again. I was thinking about my drawings all the time. The next big project i wanted to do, generally being very creative...
I had severe anxiety symptoms before, my life was boring and i wasn't going out with friends much, i felt very scared and alone. I have probably experienced every anxiety symptom out there so i can definitely relate to anyone who is reading this with any over-active anxiety symptom out there. All the way from butterflies to OCD!
I started drawing, went to the gym and started to get healthy, started cooking some foods i had never tried to cook before! I was writing, learning new things, trying different sports but most of all i was being creative and passionate!!
After i had started doing all these new things i completely forgot about all the anxiety symptoms i was feeling before, seriously! Someone said something to me about anxiety and it clicked!! I was feeling all these symptoms because my mind was bored. I had completely got rid of anxiety, there was no room in my life for it! I felt amazing!
I started going out with friends, trying new things, visiting new places, trying new hobbies. Just generally excited about life and very passionate about new hobbies etc. The exact opposite to anxiety/fear is excitement and passion!
So please, please take my advice and do everything in your life you can . Watch your anxiety symptoms fade away! This will work for anyone experiencing anxiety. I'm sure of it! Any symptom driving anxiety!
I know for some people with severe anxiety, new hobbies and passions can be over whelming but if you can get past that first hurdle and just try the things you want you will be anxiety free!! I promise! Make sure you are constantly challenging yourself. Remember people who suffer from anxiety are very clever people and need passion and creativity in there life. They thrive off it, and it's a good thing!
Also i mentioned L-Theanine in my first paragraph. I don't usually promote taking any medicine for anxiety as i completely believe in my method above but L-Theanine is a completely natural remedy that i found in a herbal shop a couple of years ago. It will not cure anxiety like my method above but it certainly does reduce it a lot!
I understand that many people reading this who suffer from severe anxiety maybe a little overwhelmed at starting new hobbies or trying new things as there anxiety is just too much. I believe that if you try the L-Theanine it will give you the kick start you need to try the method above so i can show you just how effective it is. So please follow me and show everyone how easy it is to beat anxiety!
I really hope this article has helped you. And shown anxiety in its true light! I hope it has shown you that you are not ill and you can start feeling good again very very soon. Just make sure to be Creative! There is more about L-Theanine in the box below if you would like more information about it. And please leave me some comments below. I would be very grateful to hear from anyone who values my info.
'Remember to face all of your fears! It is a very good technique to face all of your fears head on. try as many things in your life as possible. Life is too short too worry and have anxiety'
Check Out My Hub On Intrusive Thoughts Anxiety
- Intrusive Thoughts Anxiety
Do not worry if you ever have an intrusive thought. Intrusive thoughts are caused by overactive anxiety. If you address the anxiety then these thoughts will have no place in your life.
Stated by drugs.com, L--Theanine is a “Gamma-ethylamino-L-glutamic acid” that is extracted from green tea leafs.
When L-Theanine is taken it has a calming effect on our bodies decreasing the levels of stress and anxiety and i suppose it makes you feel 'More at ease'. L-Theanine is completely natural and does not cause any side effects unlike the prescribed tablets from doctors like Citalopram and zoloft.
Also L-Theanine can be taken whenever you feel like it as it is simply a tea leaf extract. There are no studies to suggest that it interacts with any other drug you may be taking. Although i would suggest talking to your doctor if you are pregnant or under going chemotherapy.
So basically L-Theanine can help lower blood pressure, help your mood, increase the dopamine in your brain and generally put you in a better state of mind.
