Anxiety is usually a person’s response to stress, which can come from psychological, physical, dietary, or environmental sources, like loud noises.
Once a person’s brain gets locked into a pattern of anxiety, it can be difficult to break.
Anxiety is considered severe when the worrying is not controllable, disproportionate, consistent, and most importantly, when it impacts one’s daily functioning negatively.
In these cases the severe anxiety may be a symptom of a more serious mental condition, such as a Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Social Anxiety, Phobias, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and a Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
Symptoms can include:
a nagging sense of fear,
overly emotional responses,
Anxiety is usually present in cases of addiction, perfectionism, being overly controlling, and behavioral issues.
Anxiety sufferers often feel overwhelmed, exhausted, and stressed out.
Some can’t concentrate due to their intense internal focus.
Others obsess about specific things.
Anxiety is easily detected if someone appears outwardly nervous; however, many sufferers appear calm on the outside, but their brain never stops.
They can’t stop thinking, and the constant internal chatter can get so bad that it interrupts their sleep and steals their quality of life.
They don’t live in the present, because they constantly worry about the future or live in the past.
Neurofeedback training is a natural, non-invasive and effective choice in reducing Anxiety.
Neurofeedback is one of the quickest and most efficient ways to teach people how to help themselves, and it’s easy to learn.
Brain Training been used for many years with solid, proven results.
With Neurofeedback the brains own self-regulating ability is used to resolve brain-deregulation, resulting in less worries and fear, decreased muscle tension, less head – and/or stomach ache, and improved sleeping pattern and better concentration
Learning this life skill decreases the need for dependence upon medications, and improves quality of life by teaching the brain to make healthier patterns on a more consistent basis so anxiety responses are avoided and a calmer brain stays more in control.
For anxiety sufferers, learning how to modulate or turn off chronic stress responses is life changing.
It is not clear what the exact cause of severe Anxiety is yet - in some situations it occurs after astressful life event, others experience anxiety without an apparant immediate cause. Some contribute anxiety to a complex combination of causes such as genetics, a certain environment and life events. The main assumption is however, that severe anxiety expereinced as a result of a deregulation of certain neurotransmitter chemicals that occur naturally in the brain. Because of this deregulation, one’s mood can change and anxiety symptoms can develop.
