We all know what anxiety feels like: Have you ever felt your heart pound before a big presentation or a tough exam? Ever gotten butterflies in your stomach during a blind date? Or worried over family problems? Felt jittery at the prospect of asking your boss for a raise?
These are all natural reactions; that’s clear from the outset. However, if anxiety attacks seem to be taking over your life and altering your personality, preventing you from living your life the way you’d like to, you may be suffering from an anxiety disorder.
Here’s a quick checklist to see if you could benefit from hypnotherapy to ease potential anxiety issues:
- Does your anxiety interfere with your work, school, or family responsibilities?
- Are you plagued by fears that you know are irrational, but can’t shake?
- Do you believe that something bad will happen if certain things aren’t done a certain way?
- Do you avoid everyday situations or activities because they cause you anxiety?
- Do you experience sudden, unexpected attacks of heart-pounding panic?
If these symptoms are familiar to you, it is possible you suffer from an anxiety disorder.
Remember that anxiety is more than just a feeling, and don’t let anyone dismiss it as such if you are indeed a sufferer. As a product of the body’s fight-or-flight response, anxiety involves a wide range of physical symptoms. Because of these symptoms, someone who suffers from anxiety might mistake their disorder for a medical illness, and make numerous unnecessary trips to the pharmacy or doctor’s office.
Common physical symptoms may include sweating, an upset stomach, dizziness, frequent urination or diarrhea, shortness of breath, and fatigue.
If you think you may be suffering from anxiety and have experienced some of these symptoms, then Dr. Gluck would love to help you turn your life around.
Curing Your Anxiety with Hypnosis
If you’re suffering from anxiety, hypnosis may be the perfect option for you to turn things back around and start living freely again – without the dangers associated with the use of anti-anxiety medications that many doctors and psychiatrists prescribe. Instead, a combination of cognitive-behavioral therapy and hypnosis can help you radically change your thinking patterns and eliminate your inborn fears by changing your reactions to anxiety-provoking situations.
First, you have to learn to make some lifestyle changes that will help you better cope with stress in your everyday life. If your stress levels are through the roof, we will help you bring your life back into balance. Just talking about your worries can make them seem less frightening – yet another simple benefit of hypnotherapy.
Soon you will learn how to take care of your body and mind in the best way possible and make time in your life for relaxation, fun and new relationships.
