Do you suffer from any of these anxiety symptoms?
- Stress sensations, nervousness, rapid heartbeat.
- Tension headaches, chest tightness, sweaty palms.
- Fatigue, low energy, avoidance behaviors, agoraphobia.
- Introversion, self-consciousness, social anxiety.
- Frequent worry, slight paranoia, unreality.
- Health fears and hypochondria.
- Anxiety / panic attacks.
You are not alone. I also endured such issues for several years. But when the panic attacks started, I knew something had to change — I just couldn't go on living like that. The good news is that once I figured out how to stop panic attacks, I was able to use the same technique to reverse all my other anxiety symptoms as well. And I was able to do it without medication.
I want to help you stop panic attacks naturally
And it won't cost you anything. But first I must tell you: I am not a health professional. Rather, I am a former anxiety and panic "disorder" sufferer, sharing my personal approach to overcoming these conditions.

How I overcame anxiety and panic attacks
Please make sure that your computer speakers or headphones are on. While listening, you should NOT be driving or operating machinery of any kind.
After listening to the first 10 tracks above, you should practice the technique twice per day for a week in order to determine whether it's right for you. The first 10 tracks are by far the most important for most people.
A message from the author
I lived with anxiety for years, feeling its effects ranging from mild nervousness and malaise, to severe panic attacks, depression and near hopelessness at times. I developed the Self Therapy method for my own use and have personally applied it to my life with amazing effectiveness. I now consider this knowledge my most valuable asset, and know that with it I never have to worry about overwhelming anxiety ever again.
I created this audio program because I remember how painful the anxiety/panic experience was, and know that others could also benefit from this immensely powerful technique.
Self Therapy is relatively simple, and can be implemented quickly. Once you master the concept, I think you'll find it an extremely powerful tool to overcome anxiety, fears/phobias, and just about any other inner adversity. It may be hard to believe now, but you may soon be grateful for your current emotional state having guided you toward this new experience. And if you're like me, you'll continue using this method long after you're "feeling better", finding that life becomes more deeply satisfying as you attain new levels of strength and harmony within.
However you choose to use it, I hope you find Self Therapy as valuable to your life as it has been to mine.

Some common anxiety symptoms that Self Therapy can help resolve
If you think you're experiencing a serious health issue, by all means see a doctor as soon as possible. But in the meantime, know that all the symptoms mentioned on this page could be fully attributable to anxiety.
Forget the dictionary definition of agoraphobia (fear of open spaces). Agoraphobia, in a more practical sense, is really a fear of your anxiety sensations themselves. As you start to associate more activities with anxiety, the number of places/people in your life that feel comfortable will logically become limited. Some people become so overwhelmed that even leaving their homes can be difficult. But don't worry, agoraphobia is one of the most common phobias there is!
Unreality (aka. depersonalization or derealization)
Do you sometimes feel like you or your environment are somehow unreal? Or that there is a disconnect between the two? This dreamlike sensation can be rather disturbing, especially if you interpret it to be the onset of serious mental illness. However, it is MUCH more likely that this sense of unreality is a simple result of the increasing inward awareness that all your inner turmoil is receiving. The phenomenon is also known as "derealization" or "depersonalization", and it has nothing to do with "going crazy".
Anxiety sufferers, with a tendency to imagine worst case scenarios, can easily become hypochondriacal with just about any unusual body sensations - even anxiety sensations themselves. It's easy to start believing that such feelings may be indicators of serious medical conditions. For example, the rapid heartbeat may be interpreted as the onset of a heart attack; dizziness as a sign of stroke or brain tumor, and so on. And such intense fear of seemingly catastrophic health issues often leads to an increased awareness of body sensations, which then leads to an apparent amplification (or even self-generation) of symptoms. So for a person with severe anxiety, it's usually no problem to get trapped in a spiral of health concerns.
Panic attacks (aka. "anxiety attacks") are often experienced as a feeling of dread - an intense fear that something terrible is about to happen like you might die, lose control of yourself, or lose your sanity. These experiences can be extremely frightening, especially since they can occur at anytime and anywhere - maybe while driving in your car, standing in line, lying in bed, or just watching TV. Anxiety attacks may seem unusual when encountered, but they're a very common result of 'anxiety overload'.
And although they're intensely disturbing, I truly feel that if you learn how to stop panic attacks, you'll be able to overcome your other anxiety issues as well.
Public speaking fear
Have you ever felt "paralyzed" by fear while public speaking? There are actually a lot of similarities between a panic attack and the spiraling fear experienced in such a situation. And here's the good news: you can use this same technique to reverse that spiral... Just imagine if no matter how much fear or nervousness you experienced, you were still able to speak well in front of people. Ironically, once you achieve that mindset, the fear of public speaking simply dissolves. And this is what happens when you use the self therapy technique WHILE speaking.
Other physical symptoms of anxiety
Here's just a partial list: Racing heart beat, chest pain, irregular heartbeat, tensions headaches, dizziness/lightheadedness, frequent sweaty palms, feeling cold/clammy, acidic stomach, indigestion/IBS, diarrhea, grinding teeth, body tension.
Another very incomplete list: obsessive thoughts, frequent disturbing thoughts, worries about death, avoidance of social interactions, feeling alone/insecure, self-consciousness, fear that you're going crazy, difficulty relaxing, easily tired, difficulty concentrating, spaciness.
Again, please don't use anything here as a "means of diagnosis". Some of the symptoms listed could also be caused by issues that require professional medical attention. But if your good judgment tells you that what you're experiencing is anxiety related, you'll likely notice those symptoms dissolving as you work toward resolving your anxiety.
