Believe In Yourself As I Believe In You…

Without a mentor who stopped their own anxiety disorder naturally, I wouldn’t be here providing the kind of anxiety support I try to provide for others. I was guided by someone who believed in me, even when I didn’t believe in myself. Someone who took valuable time out of their day to help me when I was at my lowest point, as my health anxiety and panic attacks threatened to over-shadow every aspect of my life at the time. Now it’s my time to give back not only through the End The Anxiety Program, but through the answers and inspiration i’m determined to provide for anyone looking to end their anxiety naturally.

Have a great evening my fellow North American friends.



Top 5 Tips For Dealing With Anxiety

dealing with anxiety

Anxiety disorders are some of the most common mental health issues that are diagnosed in industrialized nations. From seemingly inane anxieties about not waking up on time to severe worries about a specific issue, anxiety can permeate throughout one’s entire lifestyle. However, there are ways to confront and overcome these fears. Here we will take a look at five tips for dealing with anxiety throughout your daily life.

1. Understand Your Condition

There is an adage which holds that the key to victory is to “Know Thy Enemy”. The same concept applies to anxiety disorders. If you are able to identify the causes, onset symptoms, and frequency of your anxiety attacks or episodes, then you will be able to speak with a professional to receive a proper diagnosis. This information is a key to uncovering your specific disorder and outlining ways to treat it through medicinal and personal means.

2. Confront Your Triggersdealing with anxiety

Along with every anxiety diagnosis is a list of potential triggers for the episodes. Whether you are prone to anxiety that deals with social interaction or a fear of the unknown, it is important to know what is going to cause your anxiety to well up inside of you. Once you understand the reasons behind these causes it is important to confront them. Tell yourself that your belief that you will not do well in a social situation is unfounded until you believe it.

3. Learn How To Talk About Your Anxiety

Another one of the best ideas for dealing with anxiety is to talk about it with those who are closest to you. Friends, family, significant others and even those who you are close with at work should have some inclination about your condition. It is important to let them know about any triggers that you are willing to talk about so that they can avoid them in the future. However, it is important to let them know that the condition does not define who you are, and is not responsible for every decision you make.

4. Sound Body, Sound Mind

One of the most commonly overlooked ways for managing anxiety is having an exercise and diet regiment that can help your condition. Not only is diet and exercise great for your overall health, but it can adjust chemical balances in your body while providing a physical outlet.

5. Try Natural Remediesnatural anxiety remedies

A prominent reason for individuals not seeking treatment for their anxiety issues is that they do not wish to be prescribed drugs. Many fear, rightfully so, that the effects of the anxiety medicine may do more harm than good in the end. There are herbal remedies that can help treat anxiety without the individual needing to subject their body to chemicals. One of the best alternative treatments is St. John’s Wort, which has been clinically proven to lower levels of anxiety.

While there are many different kinds of anxiety, there are also many natural ways to treat the disorders such as through the end the anxiety program. From natural remedies to talk therapy, it is important to know that there is always help for those who are willing to seek it.

Dizziness And Panic From Sleeping On Your Stomach?

Many people know me as ‘The Anxiety Guy’ but I have to admit this new connection between sleeping on your stomach, and heightened symptoms of anxiety such as lightheadedness and fatigue was something I had to look further into. For me at least during my battle with anxiety a few years ago, it made total sense, how could I not have seen the connection?

Dizziness Due To Shallow Breathing

When your stomach pushes on your lungs it becomes harder to breathe. When it becomes harder to breath and the symptoms of anxiety such as dizziness kicks in, it’s a sign that your breathing has become shallow whether you’re conscious of it or not. Strangely I get at least 10 emails per day asking me ‘why do I wake up in panic?’

This Could Be The Reason

When you wake up in the morning and you’re a stomach sleeper, there’s a good chance that you’ve been breathing so shallow for so long during the night that your symptoms of anxiety such as dizziness are already there in the am. The next step in the panic cycle in the morning is when you REALIZE that it’s there, and your natural reaction, which is to fight turns on.

At This Point The Morning Panic Cycle Is Now On Course

It’s important that you experiment with this new idea, for a week do your best to sleep on your back. Not only is this much better for your spine and neck, you may feel like your breathing (although still slightly fast and shallow during sleep) is less restricted. This could be a massive relief for you the panic and anxiety sufferer, especially if your symptoms of anxiety are more present in the am.

Even if your anxiety is not at its worst during the early hours of the day, you should always do your best to practice good breathing throughout the day. Make sure you exhale all the air out when breathing, because it’s in the exhale that is the most important part to combat anxiety. Steadily work on your 4 seconds in, pause, and 6 seconds out breathing rhythm whenever you get the chance.

Remind yourself that when morning panic strikes and you begin getting the thoughts’ of ‘what if’ (worst case scenario), this is only happening because your body has switched on its fight or flight response. This is simply firing up your nervous system, and increasing your respiratory rate. The worst will not happen. So tonight when you lay your head to sleep, turn over and begin sleeping on your back instead. Your mind and your body will thank you greatly for this new habit.

Top Review: Acupuncture Against Anxiety And Other Ailments

acupuncture against anxiety

Acupuncture as an alternative medical practice, is now making headway in the Western world. It is now accepted as a drug-free treatment and method of stress relief. Practiced in China for more than 2,000 years, acupuncture is a therapeutic system that makes use of sterilized needles for the purpose of restoring the body’s equilibrium. The needles are inserted on specific vital points that correspond to a specific internal organ. The light insertion of the needle into a vital point is supposed to free the flow of internal energy or “chi.” According to Chinese medical theory, any blockage in the flow of chi in the body’s “energy streams” or meridians can an imbalance in the body — resulting to an illness. The natural flow of chi ensures a person’s general state of health. The focus of acupuncture is on restoring harmony in the flow of the chi throughout the body and, in the process, balancing the metaphysical concepts of yin and yang.

Acupuncture Benefits

Acupuncture is used to treat a wide range of ailments such as nausea, sinusitis, migraine headaches, lower back pain, knee pain, and chronic pain. Ancient Chinese texts also claim that the acupuncture can be used to treat minor mental and emotional problem such as anxiety disorder. For this reason, some even compare the Traditional Chinese Medicine method of acupuncture to the Western medical discipline of psychology. Both are seen as similar disciplines or therapy methods that have a positive effect on the mental health of patients.

The true benefits of acupuncture are found in its efficacy as a non-invasive, drug-free means of alleviating a number of physical ailments. It is also used in conjunction with traditional Chinese herbal cures that are perceived to be as effective as modern pills and medication. Acupuncture is concerned not only with providing cure to specific ailments. It is also used to determine the causes of physical discomforts and illnesses. Acupuncture practitioners make use of body charts that show the meridians or channels where internal energy flows to different parts of the body. These meridians correspond to the Western medicine layout of the central nervous system and circulatory system.

Studies are still being made by Western doctors and other scientists to determine the efficacy of this Eastern alternative form of healing (about time). Even if acupuncture is already accepted in different parts of the world as an alternative healing method, some quarters are still skeptical about its long-term effects.

East VS West

While there are still no research findings that make the curative claims about acupuncture absolutely undisputable, it is interesting to note the depth of understanding that the Chinese had about the inner workings of the human body thousands of years before the formal organization and practice of Western medicine. Perhaps, one day, scientists will finally prove that the differences between Eastern and Western medicine is found mostly in culture and terminology; and that both systems are actually alike in terms of philosophy and theory in the use of the needle as a tool for healing.

Have You Flexed Your ‘NO’ Muscles Today?


Some people aren’t willing to take no for an answer. So unless you are prepared to continue dealing with their excessive requests…do not give in anymore. Stand up and repeat your refusal, and do not give reasons or excuses either because it’s harder to argue with a simple ‘no.’

Dealing With Someone’s Persistent Requests

When we become honest with ourselves as well as those we relate to, it creates a high level of respect. When people respect us they are less likely to take advantage of us. People who are excessively demanding will eventually get the message, or you just might have to restrict the relationship. Either way, today is a good day to stand up for yourself…
