Our Brain Has a Natural Way to Eliminate Stress and Anxiety
Life is to be enjoyed!
We Don't Have to Cope Anymore
Sadness, anxiety and damaging stress kill multi-milions every year, but we now know how to eliminate them; so, there's no need to just cope with them anymore. I've been a psychotherapist for more than four decades and was an emotional mess at one time in my life, and I can assure you that what you will learn here really works if you'll work it.
As we move deeper into the twenty-first century, we are being bombarded with immense amounts of very scary information streaming from increasing numbers of sources. Blood sells in the media business. Our brain has become a dynamo of damaging stress effects that are literally killing us with stress disorders by overloading our body with powerful stress hormones that have no normal outlets. We cannot use the fight or flight response, because, more often than not, fighting or running away is not appropriate. When the usual channels for releasing those hormones are available, our mind seeks others, such as addictions and/or expressed anger against self or others, to reduce the inner pressure.
Can we really cope with the mountains of stressful information being dumped on us every day? Using exercise, yoga, meditation, bio-feedback, abstinence from news outlets, and, yes, music to try to drown out the twelve lanes of rush-hour traffic in our head no longer works, simply because one can't be doing any of them all the time. There is no escaping the din of our strange new world. So, coping with and just trying to managing stress means that it will become an avalanche that will inevitably kill us. There is only one way to win and live and that is to eliminate anxiety and stress altogether. If you think this is impossible, stop reading, because this is not for you. However, if you can just be open to the possibility, you are in for a wonderful surprise and a very incredible ride.
There is really only one practical, effective way to eliminate anxiety and stress, and that is to use a natural, automatic mechanism that we already have in our brain, that can instantly process incoming data, determine if it is a real danger or not, and act appropriately. If it is only psychological fear stimulated by thought, the brain will automatically eliminate the offending and unnecessary thought so that our mind is clear, calm, and ready for action. If the danger is real, the brain will initiate the fight or flight response, determining the right amount of the appropriate hormones to inject into the body for the appropriate response.
Some thirty years ago, Herbert Benson, M.D., a world-famous thoracic surgeon and professor at the Harvard School of Medicine, discovered this automatic calming mechanism, which he called the relaxation response. With the remarkable data from his famous study, he discovered a normal and natural function of the brain that is able to keep humans calm and clear-minded under the most difficult of circumstances. However, in order for this stress-elimination mechanism to work, it must be re-programmed, because we have factored it out of our brains due to our overloaded lifestyle.
Fortunately, there is now a simple, science-based way to factor the relaxation response back into the brain. When I was overwhelmed with anxiety and stress, using Dr. Benson's technique as he prescribed, I gained some balance again, but noticed that the results were not lasting. I figured that if the relaxation response is really natural as Dr. Benson said it was, there must be a way to reprogram the brain so that it would again respond automatically. I discovered a way to do just that and call it alpha training, and It's free. The ramifications are many and astounding, and you can discover them for yourself. Use as directed, within seven days you will experience an amazing, positive result. If you continue for as long as you personally need it to change and stabilize the neuron pathways in your brain, you, too, will be able to say, “Anxiety and stress don't even know where I live anymore!”
