Default Beating my anxiety?

i want to share with u and the rest of the group what is helping for me.it is called reflexology or accupressure for anxiety,insomnia,allergies, pain,uti,s,pretty much anything u can think of we have meridians in our b ody that can be reflexed or stimulated to calm urself.i am always negative about stuff like this.i believe in a pill or logical things.but i have to say that this stuff is real and really works.just go on google and type in accupressure for anxiety and it will come up i think there are 9 or 12 meridian points on ur body that u can stimulate for anxiety.go check it out and the key is to breathe in through ur nose and out through ur mouth and slowly.get ur breathing under controle while holding pressure on the key point only for a minute or until u feel ur pulse in ur foingertip.that means that energy is flowing through that meridian point.u can do this 2 or 3 times a day and it will work.its amazing guys.

Placebo or not, I don't know, but I applied pressure to both wrists and felt relief. Might have to remember this.

Can't post a link yet but I did the Google search and found a website that recommends three fingers down from your wrist, apply pressure with your thumb for 2-3 minutes, both wrists. Seems to have worked!

Default Re: Beating my anxiety?

The Anxiety Trick is behind most of the trouble people have with chronic anxiety. Have you struggled to overcome an anxiety disorder, only to get disappointing results, or even feel worse over time? You're being fooled by the Anxiety Trick.

This is a terribly common occurrence, and people mistakenly blame themselves for it. Here's a more accurate, and helpful, way to understand this common and frustrating problem.

What is an anxiety disorder? It's you getting tricked into feeling powerful fear in the absence of any danger.

It's because there's no danger that people seek help for these fears. People recognize that they're getting afraid when they're not in danger. If they were actually in danger, they would just protect themselves as best they could, and be better off for it.

With an anxiety disorder, people get afraid when they're not in danger. Their struggle to protect themselves from fear leads them down a path of increasing trouble. That's the anxiety trick.

How does this happen, that you feel fear in the absence of danger? This is the Anxiety Trick at work.

Is this the same as accupuncture?
