Hart © 2012 When I was asked to do a review on my friend Olivia Hart’s new book I was so excited as it deals with the common problem of anxiety in the 21st century. I feel that with the economic drop since 2007 that anxiety, stress and ailments of all sorts have increased and not decreased. With insurance companies wanting your money and wanting to put a Band-Aid on our illnesses, the solutions are not always a cure! I know this from experience as I have been on many medications for depression and anxiety and in the long haul, they did not help more than they hurt! The first thing to note is that many medications for this type of illness are very addictive or alter your brain chemicals to depend on the medications and they are very hard to “get off of permanently.” I am currently free of anxiety medications but do take a type of Prozac for depression, as I was hit by the economic times of 2007 and the stress led me to believe that a doctor was best to handle my mood swings as a woman in her 40’s. I have never had insurance to pay for my medications thus leading me on a online research for anything natural for healing what ails me! In my research I find that Olivia Hart’s complete resource guide to healing your anxiety very helpful as I am now cured. What exactly is anxiety anyhow? It really is an exaggerated response to a situating or event. For example, I use to believe I would die if I went into an enclosed elevator. For me, my heart would race, I would get sweaty, and feel like I could vomit and pass out all at one time as I entered the elevator. Yes, I did ride them with others but felt that way without telling others. Well, I recently got a job where I was forced to ride an elevator by myself to complete my job duties and if I did not take elevator I would not be completing my job duties. Thus, I did it and talked myself through the fear I had and just took deep breaths and told myself good affirmation to get through it. Guess what? I am healed! It took about one week and 100 rides, but I am completely not afraid or I have zero anxiety. This is what Olivia walks you though. She tells how you can heal your anxiety just like I did! The techniques and tools you can use are all explained very clearly in her book and will give you the results that you need all in one book! I would have paid 30.00 for this book or more! If you want to narrow down your ailments of anxiety, stress, panic attacks, depression or many others pick this book up and you will gladly heal from what ails you in a natural way which happens to be cheaper than going to most doctors and paying less instead of more to permanently heal what ails you. The author as well as I would love to hear from you! Pick up your copy today! © 2012 (April) All Rights Reserved Jackie Paulson http://www.amazon.com/review/R11NVUJ51PGFB8/ref=cm_cr_rdp_perm

What is Anxiety? Anxiety is a natural exaggerated rsponse to a situaon or event.
False Evidence Appearing Real is the most common term for FEAR.
Types of anxiety disorders include generalized anxiety disord-er, panic disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, social phobia/social anxiety disorders, specific phobias (snakes, spiders, heights, airplanes, elevators, driving), and obsessive-compulsive disorder. Some people have more than one anxie-ty condition.
For instance, symptoms of generalized anxiety disorder include: • Excessive anxiety and worry for at least 6 months un-der a variety of circumstances. • Trouble controlling the feelings of anxiety and worry, with difficulty relaxing. • Experiencing these specific symptoms on most days: o Feeling tense, restless, and/or uneasy o Becoming easily tired out or fatigued o Having trouble concentrating o Getting irritable easily o Feeling muscle tension and associated physical symptoms o Undergoing trouble sleeping
Symptoms of panic attacks include: • Heart palpitations, pounding, or fast heart rate • Sweating • Trembling or shakiness • Sensations of shortness of breath or trouble catching your breath • Chest pain or discomfort • Episodic numbness or tingling in extremities or around the mouth • Nausea or gastrointestinal upset • Feeling dizzy, lightheaded, faint, and/or unsteady on your feet • Fear of losing control or going crazy • Fear of dying • Chils or hot flashes
People with panic disorder have these types of panic attacks repeatedly over a short period of time, without an identifiable medical or drug cause. Because of the terror that people feel during panic attacks, many of those with panic disorder even-tually develop agoraphobia, which is a fear of open spaces or leaving home. They can become severely housebound as a re-sult, a situation that interferes with their social and occupational function. In PTSD or post-traumatic stress disorder, the person has un-dergone an extreme traumatic event in which they witnessed or experienced a life-threatening danger and felt helpless and/or horrified during the experience. PTSD can develop soon after the trauma or with a delay, and it can disrupt
everyday life or show up in waves of worsening and improving dependent on external life stressors and events.
Key sets of symptoms in PTSD include: • Instrusive recollection of the events • Avoidance and numbing of feelings and reactions, with feelings of detachment from other people and their own lives • Hyperarousal, with insomnia, anger control problems, difficulty concentrating, hypervigilance, and/or in-creased startle response to loud noises.
Causes of Anxiety, Panic Attacks, and Stress
You will have courage and learn to manage your anxiety at the same time. 1. Repeat your fear to yourself – Ever notice how a com-mon word sounds strange to you when you say it about a hundred times? The same goes for your fear. Let’s say that you are anxious about small spaces. Re-peat it to yourself until you begin to relax. You may get bored and stop thinking about it altogether. 2. Over-exaggerate your fear – This may seem hard to do when you are already anxious and nervous about something. But try it. If you have a fear of going to work with your slippers on, do it on purpose. How do you feel? Did anyone notice? Maybe they thought you had a foot problem. The point is that it didn’t kill you. 3. Stop overanalyzing each situation you face – Let’s say that you find a dollar on the floor at work. Your mind may jump to the conclusion that maybe your boss is testing you to see if you’ll keep it so it’s a trap. Some-times a dollar is just a dollar. You found it so it’s yours unless someone else asks about it. There is no test. 4. Leave the past in the past – It’s one of our mind’s little games to bring up past failures before a big event. Maybe once you tripped on stage so now you are afraid you will do it every time you get up there. In your last five presentations, you didn’t do it so why would the sixth be any different? 15 Instead, when that thought comes, allow it to play out and say that was in the past and this is a new situation. Say that (or something similar) each time to stop an-xiety from attacking you before it starts.
Do you have anxious feelings in certain situations? Use these four tips to begin to see your way out of the worry and back into a happy fulfilling life.
And if the stress is not managed, the symptoms will get worse and its effects may even be irreversible. Seven ways in which stress may manifest itself in your body are: 1. Depression. When you are stressed out, it is very common for people to become depressed. There are only so many chemicals in the brain to help a person deal with stress, and when they are used up, they're used up. This can lead to a person becoming pro-foundly depressed in what seems like a relatively short period of time. 2. Anxiety. Those who are stressed are likely to deal with uncontrollable levels of anxiety. Anxiety and depres-sion often go hand in hand, and this can cause many different changes in the physiological functioning of the body. 3. Heart disease. Stress is very closely linked to heart at-tacks and death associated with cardiovascular disease. When stress is not managed, the body breaks down quickly and the heart is often profoundly im-pacted. 17 4. Diabetes. Type 2 diabetes is one of the fastest grow-ing epidemics in the world and both mental and physical stress can cause rapid fluctuations in blood sugar levels. The biology of stress makes you more in-sulin resistant – and blood sugar levels soar far above normal. The long-term effects associated with this in-clude heart disease, blindness, nerve pain problems, kidney disease, and more. 5. Hair loss. We often tease our friends and family when they begin to lose hair, but this can be a symptom of unmanaged stress. If your hair is falling out prema-turely don't blame genetics, look closely at how you are dealing with the stress in your life and see if there are things you can do to control it more effectively. 6. Obesity. We often cope with stress by consuming un-healthy, fattening foods. Plus, stress prohibits the control of necessary chemicals that are needed to break down fat, which can lead to obesity. 7. Sexual dysfunction. Stress is one of the most common reasons associated with impotence in men. As you can see, stress can affect your health in many ways. This is by no means an all-inclusive list of how stress affects your body and health. You may also suffer from hyperthyroid-ism, obsessivecompulsive disorder, tooth and gum disease, ulcers, and even cancer. Stress is serious stuff! This is all the more reason to start actively managing your stress today. 18 Quick Self-Quiz on Your Stress Level and Anxiety

Overview of Treatment Options When your anxiety has gone over into a life-disrupting disord-er, you need professional help. Conventional medicine and psychiatry have some good drug-free therapies such as cogni-tive behavioral therapy (CBT) that can help a great deal. Sometimes drugs (benzodiazepines, bupropion, SSRIs, and others) are necessary and helpful to cut short a rough period, but many anti-anxiety drugs have significant side effects and long term risks, including addiction, difficulty concentrating, and incoordination while driving. CBT therapy helps you learn how to think about external events and your feelings in new, more constructive ways. Drugs simply suppress the anxious feelings and put you at risk 20 of rebounds of anxiety and insomnia when you miss a dose or try to stop them. CBT for Anxiety Using cognitive
