Anxiety Disorder – Selfhealing Book Module 10

Anxiety, disorder

Nasal congestion

  • Shortness of breath and chest tightness alone will make patients. Feel that their breathing is not good enough, and in the case of nasal congestion included.
  • It is totally a terrible match, and this state is not uncommon among patients with anxiety disorders. Almost every day, some patients would say to me. “I can’t breathe, and I’m about to die.”
  • Over the past years, thousands of patients have complained to me with similar words. And some of them even once described it as exaggerated. As if they were about to die.
  • Of course, I never doubt the authenticity of this “exaggeration”, on the contrary. It was real at that time. Especially when chest tightness, shortness of breath, inability to breathe.
  • Difficulty in deep breathing, and nasal congestion occur at the same time. This “exaggerated” feeling is typically obvious.
  • As mentioned earlier, chest tightness, shortness of breath. And difficulty in deep breathing will not make you really short of breath. And nasal congestion will not make you worse.
  • It will only make you feel uncomfortable more. Either your nasal congestion is caused by autonomic nerve disorder. Or rhinitis, there is no big problem.
  • More than half of the patients with “severe nasal congestion”. Failed to find any problems after going to the hospital for examination. Among them, a small number of patients were found to have “rhinitis”.
  • Or “deviated nasal septum”. After taking drugs for rhinitis or even a surgery for deviated nasal septum. T
  • Symptoms of nasal congestion may not be resolved completely. But anxiolytics could bring the immediate benefits. Doesn’t that explain the problem?
  • Of course, I am definitely not suggesting that you should take anti-anxiety medication. In fact, more and more patients had reported.
  • That when they were nervous and anxious, especially when they noticed the symptoms of nasal congestion.
  • Congestion became more obvious. As the fear grew, the nasal congestion became worse. Instead, they might completely forgot about the nasal congestion during the time they were busy.

It seemed that a stuffy nose never existed. Nasal congestion caused by autonomic disorders will eventually disappear. With the recovery of anxiety disorders. I have witnessed too much of this.

Dry mouth, bitterness or bad breath

  • It is no exaggeration to say that the symptoms of anxiety disorders accompany are bizarre. There is hardly any disease in the world. That can cause so many bizarre symptoms.
  • Many patients once said to me: “Before I got anxiety disorder, I never had dry mouth, bitterness or bad breath. How should it happen after having anxiety disorder?
  • Could it be a gastrointestinal problem? But I had conducted a checkup. And the doctor said there was no major problem.” In fact, the answer is yes, it is indeed related to gastrointestinal abnormalities.
  • It is not the “major disease” as you have imagined or the “tumor cancer”. Which comes from Google, but the autonomic nerve disorder. Leads to an overreaction of the vagal nerve. Causing gastrointestinal disorders, slow peristalsis, weakening function.

In which the food stays in the stomach too long, further causing abnormal fermentation. In this case, how there can be no odor.

Mechanism of Vagal Nerve

  • In the same way, the overreaction of the vagal nerve. Will result in a decrease in the secretion of salivary glands. And the decrease in saliva will inevitably lead to mouth and throat become dry.
  • And will surely make oral residue sticky, causing bitterness and bad breath. But don’t worry, as I mentioned earlier, the power of autonomic disorder is limited.
  • This level of weakened gastrointestinal function has almost negligible impact on the body. Except slightly slower digestion, dry mouth, bitterness, and bad breath.
  • Whether it is a temporary weakening of gastrointestinal function. Or a decrease in the secretion of salivary glands. It will return to normal with the recovery of your anxiety disorders.
  • Prior to that, brushing your teeth frequently, drinking plenty of water. And maintaining indoor humidity allow you to alleviate these symptoms.
  • Beyond that, there is no need to do something too much. Remember: If you mind the strange eyes of others.

You can use mouthwash or chew gum to help you get through this awkward period.

Teeth clenching and grinding.

  • Unconscious clenching or grinding teeth is a small symptom. I was not going to talk about it separately at first. But when I began the work of popularization of science on the Internet.
  • And have been asked for how to solve this symptom more than once. Hence I decide to briefly explain it here. Because of frequent uncontrolled teeth clenching and grinding.
  • Those patients may have suffered severe tooth abrasion, crumbling teeth. Or even temporal mandibular joint (TMJ) disorder.
  • However, this is not the reason that they cannot bear. It is the worry and entanglement that make them really unbearable. They had always asked me: “I must have some deeply hidden disease.
  • You see, my teeth are all worn out, and my jaw is cracking when I open my mouth.” Even some patients having mild symptoms with merely itchy teeth. Or occasional clenching of teeth can be wrapped in self-doubts.
  • In fact, even if you go to the dental clinic or ENT department for examination. Doctor may tell you that your symptom is likely to be caused by mental factors. Or psychological factors.
  • Tension and anxiety are the most common reasons for normal people to bite and grind their teeth. If you bite and grind your teeth too frequently. It will indeed lead to tooth abrasion.
  • Crumbling teeth or even temporal mandibular joint. And in case of the symptom is severe, you can do some oral care or protective treatment. For a patient with anxiety disorders.
  • It is nothing weird because their nerves have been already disordered and become sensitive. Thus causing teeth clenching and grinding more frequently and seriously than normal people.
  • Similarly, if you can’t stand it, you can do oral care or protective treatment. While there is no way to “remove” the “problem” of clenching and grinding.

So you may allow it to exist temporarily. This state will also be greatly alleviated as your anxiety disorder fades away. The reason why I don’t refer to complete healing. Is because it is also common for normal people experiencing teeth clenching and grinding.

Discomfort in the chest area

  • Most often people may wrongly believe that the discomfort in their chest areas is due to heart trouble.

While the real cause is intercostal neuralgia, of course, providing they have ruled out organic diseases. Intercostal neuralgia may appear alone or together with cardiac neurosis. And may be episodic or continuous.


  • Reason why I single out intercostal neuralgia. Is that I don’t want everyone to relate such a mild symptom to “heart discomfort”.
  • Because this will only increase everyone’s psychological burden.
  • Firstly, intercostal neuralgia is the most typical and common anxiety symptom. Which is not difficult to understand as anxiety disorder itself includes neurosis.
  • In addition to causing the discomfort in heart, intestines and stomach. And liver and lung accompanied by systemic nerve pain. And of which intercostal neuralgia represents the most common symptom.
  • Pain generally occurs in the front wall of the chest, abdomen, sternum. Intercostal space, and left and right ribs or back ribs. The pain may occur separately or jointly.
  • And it could happen with stabbing or burning sensation. Or may get worse when you cough, take a deep breath or sneeze.
  • Biggest difference between intercostal neuralgia caused by anxiety disorders. And real intercostal neuralgia is the pain degree.
  • Pain from real intercostal neuralgia could make the sufferer unbearable. While the intercostal neuralgia caused by anxiety disorders is mostly vague and tolerable.
  • Like migratory pain in the whole body, it is just a slight anxiety symptom. And the difference is that it occurs around the heart. Making you hypochondriacal and fearful.
  • As you have understood its essence and known that it is just a slight neurological symptom. And if you overcome the fear itself. It will no longer affect your work and life, and will not bring you any harm.

Furthermore, when you do it, you will find that the discomfort will gradually move away from you.

High or unstable blood pressure (1)

  • “God! Look, my blood pressure is 100-150!” “I wish the doctor could see how high my blood pressure is now.” This is the common voice of all patients with “a fear of high blood pressure”.
  • Too many patients with anxiety disorders may measure the blood pressure dozens or hundreds of times a day. Don’t assume that I am exaggerating this problem.
  • Xiao Xue is such a patient. Her continuous blood pressure measurement practice. From morning to night had made her slightly numb fingers. Turn into unbearable numbness in her arms due to anxiety disorders.
  • What’s more, such state caused her to become more frightened. And finally couldn’t help rushing to the hospital. However, the numbness in her arms disappeared before arriving at the hospital at that time.


  • Reason was that there was no blood pressure meter. To continue to strangle her arm on the way to the hospital. It is conceivable how many times she had measured that day.

A year later, after having fully recovered from the symptoms. She will laugh every time as she talks about this experience.

  • This phenomenon happens all the time, and according to the descriptions of many patients. It may not be as exaggerated as Xue’s state. But it is enough to demonstrate how terrible the “high blood pressure”.
  • Is in the mind of patients with anxiety disorders. Actually, before high blood pressure makes you afraid worse. It is better to take a look at what high blood pressure is.

High or unstable blood pressure (2)

  • Generally speaking, there are two types of high blood pressure or hypertension. One is primary hypertension and the other is secondary hypertension.
  • In layman’s terms, primary hypertension refers to hypertension resulting from unknown causes. Without organic diseases, and secondary hypertension is caused by organic diseases.
  • What most people fear is not primary hypertension. But secondary hypertension because secondary hypertension. Which proves the existence of organic diseases. Fortunately, secondary hypertension accounts for only 5% of all hypertensive patients.
  • And among them, the elderly account for the vast majority. Therefore, for young and middle-aged people, this probability is very low. Especially for patients with anxiety disorders.
  • Because most patients with anxiety disorders have gone to the hospital for various examinations. More than once, and the causes of organic diseases have long been ruled out.
  • Probability of secondary hypertension represents the lowest of the lowest. It could be said that most of hypertensive patients with anxiety disorders are primary hypertension.
  • Especially before having anxiety disorders. And in addition to this, none of you could “coincidentally”. Get hypertension while or after having anxiety disorders.
  • At this point, if I tell you it is just a coincidence. I am afraid even you won’t believe it yourself. It can be seen that there is a high probability. That your primary hypertension is caused by anxiety disorders.

Among many patients, this state is not rare as some are episodic, and others are continuous. But no matter in any case, after the recovery from anxiety disorders. Blood pressure of most patients could return to normal.

Night terror (2)

  • If the first type of night terror is a somatic response. Then the second type is a mental symptom. It also occurs when you are about to fall asleep or have just fallen asleep.
  • For the second type, what is different is that the thought of patients has entered. A black hole which is out of control. Some people even think of this situation as the symptoms of a “mental patient”.
  • They wonder if a “mental patient” will have such thoughts before becoming “mentally ill”. This situation gives patients fearful and terrified thoughts, which cannot be controlled.
  • There are also some patients who say to me: “I feel that I am out of control immediately I fall asleep. My thoughts are uncontrollable and it seems like I am going crazy.
  • My God, what should I do? I’m going crazy.” There are also some special patients who are temporarily unable. To distinguish between dreams and reality after being awakened by nightmares. And their fears persist for a long time.
  • Same as the first night terror, you just need to turn on the light, stand up. And slowly wake yourself up from half[1]dreaming. You can then listen to music, read a book or do something you like. To distract your thoughts temporarily, which will be good for you.
  • Although “facing” is the top priority, there should be room for it. Under special circumstances when you feel unbearable. It is completely fine to take a roundabout occasionally.
  • You need to know that no matter what type of night terror it is. And although it looks terrifying at the time, I want you to remember. That you will not die or go crazy. This is what countless patients have experienced, and now they are still fine.

Pain is temporary, the power of adrenaline is limited. And nerve disorders are harmful to this degree at best. All you have to do is wait for it to fade away. When it is dawn, you will have a rebirth again.

Feeling seriously ill

A certain of subtle doubts and worries might arise in case of serious illness. It is because all the problems that are “severely ill”.

After suffering from anxiety as you were a healthy person before. Or to say the least that you are not a “severely ill” person? Nothing in the world can escape the word “reason”.

Maybe it is just a coincidence. However, why does it appear on thousands of patients at the same time? Therefore, stop wondering if anxiety disorders can have that much of an impact, the answer is yes.

“Illness-ridden feeling” is something that every patient may have experienced. The impact of anxiety disorders involves all aspects mentally and physically. As the autonomic nerves spread all over the body,

We should not be deceived by those temporary illusions. With my help, a considerable number of patients were able to sing, dance, play. And run along with the feeling of “being severely ill”. And they later found that they could be do the things. As good as any normal persons or even better.

Remember, you are healthy.

Sleepiness different from Narcolepsy

  • In fact, these are totally unnecessary to worry. “Sleepiness” is different from “narcolepsy”. “Sleepiness” does not resemble an uncontrolled sudden falling asleep.
  • Whereas the patient with anxiety disorders who have the so-called “sleepiness”. Is only because he or she sleeps too long during the day. And does not want to get up because they love to sleep so much.
  • Ms. Zhou is an example. After suffering from anxiety disorders. It was common for her to sleep for more than ten hours. And sometimes she even slept for 20 hours.
  • According to her descriptions, when she woke up in the middle. She could be able to get up but just didn’t want to. Although such state occurs not as much as insomnia, it is not rare.

It is not that something is wrong with your body. It is just that the parasympathetic nerves are overexcited. Which is the opposite of sympathetic nerve excitation that can make your heart rate slow. And you become tired, drowsy and the like.

Drowsiness- Controlled by yourself

  • This level of drowsiness could be controlled by yourself. And if you have nothing important to do at that time. It is fine to sleep more as sleepiness is nothing wrong, right?
  • If you have to, or only need to “pull yourself up”. You could be able to wake up from sleeping. You don’t have to give too much attention to this.
  • Just do the things according to your own state. It is not a strange, big problem. And living with it peacefully is a good choice.

Cough or dry cough (1)

However, as the test showed that there was no problem, they relaxed. But as long as the cough did not end, their fear would reappear a few days later. “I just had a cold a few days ago.

And now I may really have been affected by COVID-19. What should I do?” They then went to the hospital to check the heart, lungs, and trachea repeatedly.

However, the worry and anxiety still continued despite of the results. Which showed that there was no problem, or it was just inflammation of the trachea.

Pushing their fears to be relieved just a few days. To a healthy person. This kind of behavior and thought may seem unbelievable, but it is real and common.

Patient’s nerves are at a very “sensitive” state, and all kinds of strange symptoms follow one after another.

Causing their fragile nerves to be continuously stimulated. Making the nerves become more sensitive. The increasingly sensitive nerves will compel patients.

To exaggerate any inconspicuous things that happen to them (around them) without limit. Especially the change in the body. Even if it is just several times of dry coughs.

Cough or dry cough (2)

  • Examination and analysis are always the first and most important step in correcting cognition. So let’s take a look at why people with anxiety disorders always cough.
  • Many patients once came to the hospital for examination. Because of coughing intermittently for several weeks or even months without relief.
  • But the cough did not disappear. Hence, hypochondria and fear came out, “Will there be a tumor in my lungs?”.
  • It is no exaggeration to say that I have heard such words thousands of times.

Diseases caused by bad emotions

  • Modern science and medicine have proved more than once. Negative emotions will cause the body to stress response, and this.
  • No matter how heavy or light, will trigger a physiological response, namely. Locus coeruleus dominance – sympathetic nerve stimulation – epinephrine secretion – pituitary – epinephrine secretion.
  • It is just that most of the physiological responses are so light that you can’t feel them temporarily. This is especially true for the patients with anxiety disorders. And it does not even require a bad mood as a fuse to trigger this response.

Which is why many patients react: “I have no anxiety at all recently with no wild flights of fancy. But the terrible symptoms still happen”. For some friends who were enjoying their lives.

  • Had appeared with physical and mental symptoms inexplicably. After knowing this, let’s return to talk about cough. The formation and recurrence of cough are often the result of the combined effect of many complex factors.
  • And in which mental factors, including rage, anxiety, fear and worry, account for a very large proportion.
  • By cerebral cortical and vagal reflexes or hyperventilation (which is often involuntary in patients with anxiety disorders).
  • But the over-reaction of vagal nerve itself represents the normality in patients with anxiety disorders. That is to say. If you have already gone to the hospital for relevant examinations.

And the doctor had told you that there was no problem or just a small problem. Stop suspicion and don’t take examinations again and again. Because patients with anxiety disorders themselves “should” cough. Then many of them would ask why other patients do not cough.


Remember, what you need to do is to turn this correct perception into your own thoughts. Only then can you truly get rid of your fear, enter into a virtuous circle.

And fully recover.You may have been tired of listening to the end part of each symptom. But I am sorry, in order to make your sub-consciousness. Could catch a correct cognition in the case of the symptoms come.

I would rather repeat it again and again.

Anxiety Disorder- Selfhealing Book Module 8



  • Are you really overwhelmed by the symptoms? If you think about it, you are not. 99% of the patients can completely endure 99% of the symptoms. But the fear caused by symptoms is unbearable for everyone.
  • If the fear disappears and only the symptoms remain, it will be just a piece of cake, how do you think? Adequate theory is the prerequisite for recovery.
  • If you don’t understand this, you will never be able to overcome fear itself. But the mere “understanding” of theories won’t work, or work significantly.
  • As theory isin your subjective consciousness. It can help you fight against fear when symptoms come. It is useful, but not enough!
  • Only when the theory penetrates into your subconscious. And replaces your previous wrong subconscious. Can you truly be afraid when symptoms come.
  • And this is the only way to recover. For this reason, I would rather be annoying by telling you over and over again. As there is really no better way to make these ideas deep into your subconscious.

Goose bumps and scalp tingling

  • “I felt a sudden electric current coming out of nowhere. Circulating around in my body and finally reaching my head. My hair stood on end, my arms were full of goose bumps.
  • Sometimes half of my face was numb, and my scalp was tingling.” “I get goose bumps all over my body when I am nervous and excited, and then my scalp tingles. Could it be that I am sick?”
  • Yes, you are indeed sick, but it is not the “precursor of facial paralysis” that you imagined. Nor the “precursor of cerebral infarction”. Actually, your nerves are really “sick”.
  • Scalp tingling and standing hair (goose bumps) are the stress response of the body to stimuli such as cold or fear. At this time, there will be a layer of small pimples like goose skin.
  • As there is a small muscle under each fine hair-the arrector muscle (also called pili muscle). When animals (including humans) are under threat. The excitation of sympathetic nerves will cause the arrector muscle to contract.
  • And small bumps will protrude on the surface of the skin, causing the hair on it to stand on end. This is stress response to keep warm or scare away the enemy.
  • Just think about the “big hair” cat. It is just that humans have less hair due to evolutionary needs. This is true for normal people. Not to mention those with anxiety disorder.
  • In addition, the same is true for scalp tingling. It is just self-protection behavior from your “nerves”. Which mistakenly think that you need to keep warm or fight off the enemy. A simple understanding is required for this point. There is no need to delve into it.

Are you really so miserable

  • Categorize your discomfort level from 1 to 10 and suppose the real situation is 1. What you feel may be 5-10.
  • This is because your nerves are extremely sensitive, and this is anxiety disorder. For a normal person, it is even possible that his discomfort level is 2. But he can’t feel it, which means the discomfort does not really matter, doesn’t it?
  • Of course, this does not mean that discomfort is caused by your random thoughts. On the contrary, your feeling is real. Any discomfort caused by nerve sensitivity is magnified ten times and a hundred times.
  • Which is also caused by wrong signals sent by the nerves. Well, just accept and let it go. For example, everyone will suffer from dizziness or visual deviation to some degree.
  • If the degree of visual deviation is from 1 to 10 and my visual deviation is actually 1. I may feel it is ranging from 5 to 10.
  • When it is 5, I think I can endure. But when it reaches 10, I will be really uncomfortable. When I practice and try not to care, it gets better day by day.
  • As I know that it may be 2 for normal people, which is more serious than me, although they can’t feel it. Another example is hypoglycemia. In fact, hypoglycemia is not worth a fuss at all.
  • And the proportion of women with hypoglycemia is even more than 50%. Hypoglycemia can cause blurred vision and groggy feeling. But it will stabilize.
  • Likewise, your level of hypoglycemia may be only 1. Which is more normal than normal people. Once you have anxiety, this feeling may also be amplified to 2- 5 times, causing you great fear.
  • This fear prompts your adrenaline to rise and further amplifies your symptoms. Which become 2-5 times or even 10 times worse.


  • Let me ask, at this time, who can stand it? The same is true of the heartbeat. What some people do not understand previously. Is that they can “hear” their heartbeat so clearly, and it is so loud!
  • It is the same reason. Our nerves are too sensitive, which send the wrong signals. Once you have understood the reason, you will not care about it. Anxiety
  • As the more you think about it, the more nervous your nerves will become. And the adrenaline will continue to be secreted wrongly. Which lead to wrong signals sent by the nerves.
  • Vicious circle comes again. However, it is normal when you don’t understand it and you are afraid. If you continue to care about and be afraid of it.
  • After you have understood it thoroughly, it is your own fault. Maybe you will say, I have already understood anxiety disorder, why am I still afraid?
  • What I want to tell you is that your understanding. Still stays in the subjective consciousness and has not penetrated deep into the subconscious.
  • Then how can you counteract your deep-rooted wrong subconscious? Real understanding of anxiety disorder means that the wrong cognition for all symptoms. Is completely replaced by correct cognition.
  • So as to achieve a thorough, unified and correct cognition from the depths of subconscious. Instead of the subjective awareness. Only by this you will finally achieve the real purpose of getting rid of the fear.
  • Caused by anxiety disorder and gradually become used to it.

Night terror (1)

  • First type of night terror often occurs when people are about to fall asleep or have just fallen asleep. The heart skips a beat suddenly and you feel like it has stopped beating.
  • At this time, the patient wakes up suddenly,accompanied by palpitation, dizziness and fear. Night terror also occurs with another form, that is, a sudden awakening. With feeling of being unable to breathe.
  • There is also a kind of situation, which is nerve beating. The patient is suddenly awakened by the nerve beating, accompanied even with tremors.
  • Most patients may have encountered this situation, which is a most common one. And is similar to the first type of panic attack. Even if you have completely overcome panic attack.
  • This type of night terror can still swoop in, as it occurs when you are unconscious or nor conscious enough. At this time, your will is the weakest, which can be deemed. As slow subjective consciousness and the subconscious takes the initiative.
  • If your subconscious cognition is not correct enough. You are your subconscious reaction is hypochondriasis and fear. This sudden situation will make the patient at a loss.
  • Even for patients who have a certain understanding of anxiety disorder (but their understanding is not correct enough). It is difficult to make a rational review and analysis under this situation. And even have the urge to rush to the hospital.
  • At this time, I suggest that you not continue to sleep by enduring the fear. And not let your family members call the emergency number. All you have to do is turn on the light, stand up. And slowly wake yourself up from half-dreaming.
  • Don’t be afraid and don’t dread. Your disturbed nerves don’t “know” that you are sleeping now. And “think” that you are in “danger”. So they make a protective stress response.
  • Making you temporarily in “fight” or “flight” state. This situation will not cause you any harm, it will only “scare you” at best. When you are awake, you can better analyze and deal with it.
  • When you are fully awake, “the practice for dealing with panic attacks” is a good choice. You can try to fall asleep again after the “practice”. It doesn’t matter if you can’t fall asleep, you can listen to music. Read a book, or do something that you like instead.
  • For patients who only wake up from this type of night terror, it is enough to finish the part. You can just skip the following chapter about night terror.

Anxiety Disorder- Selfhealing Book Module 7


  • It seems that the symptoms of fever and chill all over the body are opposite. They often occur alternately. Patients often feel that they are hot, sweaty or about to sweat.
  • They think they have a fever, but after measuring the temperature, they find that everything is normal. So they relax a little bit (especially under the current COVID-19 pandemic).
  • This symptom is not typical of anxiety disorder, but it is not uncommon. For fever symptoms, except in some special circumstances (such as the pandemic).
  • People will not feel particularly afraid and worried. I will briefly talk about the principle of fever and a simple understanding will be enough.
  • Principle is actually very simple. When healthy people are nervous and anxious, the blood flow will be revived up. And the central nervous system will respond to stress.
  • Patient will feel hot all over the body and some will also sweat. When the emotion becomes stable, symptoms will slowly ease and disappear.
  • This is especially true for patients with anxiety disorder. Disordered nerve itself will speed up your heart rate and blood flow and cause nerve disorder.

All you need to know about this is that when you have fever symptoms. It is enough to be able to recall what I said.

Slight fever (1)

  • Compared with chills and fever without actual change in body temperature. Real “slight fever” is more disturbing for the patients. Especially when the “slight fever” is asymptomatic.
  • This kind of anxiety will increase continuously. From the general understanding of people. Or “inflammation” in some part of the body, which is usually correct.
  • However, if there is no cold or inflammation in other parts of the body when “slight fever” appears. The “uneasiness” of patients will become “hypochondriasis”. And hypochondriasis will definitely become fear.
  • Many patients will restart the journey of “Googling” under this situation. As mentioned earlier, Google Google, cancer starts.
  • Don’t panic if you find that the causes of the disease are tumor and leukemia. As the probability of cancer for no reason is definitely not higher than that of a car accident.
  • On the contrary, the possibility of asymptomatic inflammation is relatively high.
  • As nervous system disorders can also cause functional slight fever. Since you are a patient with anxiety disorder.
  • You are more likely to have slight fever. It may continue for a long time but will be intermittent within 24 hours.
  • At this time, you should calm down, go to the hospital to conduct relevant examinations. At the same time stop Googling and do not consult any non-professionals. Including relatives and friends.

Their words, which are caring but not professional enough, are not really good for you.

Slight fever (2)

  • If you have taken my advice, gone to the hospital and ruled out other causes of “the slight fever”. Then please trust your doctor.
  • You are healthy and it is completely unnecessary to undergo repeated checks. Stop your worry and concern.
  • And consider scientifically what “slight fever for no reason” is. Clinically, there is a type of slight fever called functional slight fever.
  • According to statistics, it accounts for about 56%-64% of all slight fever causes. The most common one is caused by autonomic nervous system disorder.
  • With females accounting for the most part. As a member of the nervous system. The autonomic nerve interacts with the endocrine system.
  • And the disordered autonomic nervous system can easily lead. To the disorder of the thermoregulatory central system, causing a “slight fever state”.
  • And the state is often accompanied by symptoms of accelerated heart rate, palpitation. Dizziness, nausea, insomnia, irregular menstruation, backache and sweating, etc.
  • Functional slight fever generally does not exceed 38℃. Most of which are maintained between 37.3°C-37.6°C.
  • Fever may last for a few minutes, months or even years without affecting life and work. There is no evidence that this “slight fever” is harmful to the human body.
  • Studies have shown that autonomic slight fever is self-healing. With the recovery from anxiety disorder, the disordered autonomic nervous system. Will be restored, and the fever will be cured.
  • You should know that all irrational assumptions and hypochondriasis are untenable in the field of science. Understand anxiety disorder correctly and repeatedly imprint this cognition in your subconscious.
  • When there is no “reason” for assumptions and hypochondriasis. The vicious circle will eventually become a virtuous circle. Namely: correct cognition-overcoming the fear itself.

Stabilized adrenaline- self-healing of the autonomic symptoms disappear-complete recovery.

Fatigue (1)

  • In addition to the weakness of the legs and limbs during a panic attack. Patients will also have symptoms such as weakness, fatigue, and limb weakness.
  • In this case, patients hardly want to do anything but lie down. Perhaps the level of fatigue and weakness is not comparable to that of a panic attack.
  • But the distress caused to patients cannot be underestimated. This is not alarmist talk, as though some symptoms do not seem to be fatal.
  • Their attacks are frequent and long, which have a great negative impact on the psychology of patients.
  • I have heard too many similar words. Even if there are slight symptoms, some patient can lie down for a whole day.
  • And worry and fear will arise spontaneously. These negative thoughts may not be strong.
  • As often ignored by others, but they make you vaguely worry all the time. This kind of worry that is not “strong” will keep your body in a state of self-protection .
  • Your nerves will not have enough time and space to repair themselves. Which is the root that make you unable to recover.
  • However, due to your lack and error of cognition. This vague worry cannot be eliminated from your heart.
  • If the fundamental problem is not solved, any other auxiliary means will be of no avail. Therefore, you must examine and analyze your situation.
  • Truly understand how your symptoms are caused, whether it is really harmless and why. You should thoroughly “get rid of fear” from the bottom of your heart.

Fatigue (2)

  • Leg and limb weakness are common in normal people. No matter how healthy people are, they may have had similar experiences to some extent.
  • For them, the symptoms will quickly pass. They will not pay much attention, let alone worry about it. Before a prisoner under sentence of death is executed.
  • His body will automatically turn on the protection mode, with intense adrenaline stress. Increased heart rate and palpitations.
  • Such is the robust power of stress response from psychological to neurological.
  • Stress response can lead to a series of symptoms and it is nothing strange. We just need to know that this is the wrong response of the nerves to protect our body.
  • Our body is healthy, and this response will not cause us any permanent physical damage. Allow it to exist, don’t be hypochondriac or afraid.

Don’t struggle or pay any attention. You will find one day, everything will be fine. I can guarantee this.

Anxiety levels tend to rise in tandem with sleep deprivation.


The detrimental effects of stress and anxiety may be compounded by mental exertion. People with social anxiety often avoid being around other people and making new friends. You can discover your innate sense of wanderlust and desire for adventure if you follow their advice. The way someone handles the problems they are facing right now shows how strong they are and how much they can grow when they face problems. When people are happy, their bodies produce feel-good chemicals like endorphins and others. In the eyes of many, this just serves to further complicate an already challenging task.

How committed someone is to their fitness routine.

Some research shows that anxiety and phobia disorders might be easier to deal with if you exercise.

Those who suffer from generalized anxiety disorder tend to stress out over nothing.

Consider how bad things are and if you really need help. Under mental or emotional strain, a person’s breathing pattern may alter.

Take a minute to slow down and breathe deeply.

When feeling anxious, some find it helpful to take several deep breaths. Be calm, even if it seems like there’s nothing more you can do.

For now, you may rest easy knowing that the threat has been removed. If you want to see big changes in your heart rate and how much you sweat, you have to work out hard.

Antidepressants may not work as well for athletes who are always on the move, such as bikers and swimmers.

Individuals sometimes get a bad rap for putting their own wants and needs ahead of those of the group.

Promising preliminary outcomes have been seen in studies utilizing this method to treat depression. When feeling worried or unsettled, some individuals find it helpful to take several deep breaths.

More oxygen is taken in when you breathe using your diaphragm rather than your chest. You will get greater and quicker benefits if you take it every night before bed.

People with anxiety might feel better if they try to relax every day by doing things like taking deep breaths. A refreshing spray of cold water on the face might be the perfect way to relax and gain perspective. There are a vast variety of reasons why people go to the emergency room.

Clinical trials for both Cenforce 100 and Fildena 100 have shown their efficacy. Curious? The most important thing is not to be shy about reaching out to us if you believe you may need assistance.

Getting some distance and seeing the larger view could help you see things more clearly. Spending a week’s wages on leisure time (having fun every day for an hour) is completely unsustainable.

It’s possible that a trip around the block can do wonders for your mood.

Being outside in the light and air may help lessen the bad effects of being inactive. There are several studies demonstrating the positive effects of regular exercise on health. Doctors and scientists say that getting regular exercise is the best way to stay in good health.

Scientists have linked this high to the production of the neurotransmitter endorphin. The release of endorphins in the brain is associated with upbeat states of mind. What they are able to do to enhance people’s spirits and ease their pain is quite astonishing. Studies have shown that exercise can help reduce stress for days and sometimes even weeks after the workout is over.

Endorphins are called “drug messengers” because they spread “good news” to every cell in the body. “Good-vibes” endorphins are released when the body engages in vigorous physical activity. Ignore the couch-potato lifestyle and get outside. Exercise may help reduce the physiological response to stress, according to studies.

Keeping up a constant cover narrative requires discipline and dedication. When restrictions are removed, minds are free to wander and look for new ways to solve problems. For most individuals, abdominal fat may be reduced by exercising regularly. Those who put in a lot of effort are usually well compensated.

Research has shown that stress is bad for your health, so it’s important to learn how to deal with it.

In a conversation about self-criticism, everyone will at some point criticize themselves. There’s no purpose in staying somewhere you don’t feel secure. When two individuals feel inadequate, they may argue.

Don’t ignore your mental and physical health by skimping on sleep.

Since this causes additional complications, the development will be slower than desired. When someone admits to having anxiety and is willing to seek treatment for it, it is a huge step forward. Perhaps the situation can be improved if the issue is recognized.

Fixing a problem requires first pinpointing exactly what it is. Green tea is often recommended to people with anxiety because it has a lot of antioxidants.

Green tea may be a healthy alternative to sugary sodas and fruit juices when you need a fast jolt of energy. Most people who work in caregiving choose to prioritize the needs of those they are caring for above their own.

If you don’t give yourself time to unwind, stress and worry will build up inside of you. There are a number of unforeseen effects that have been related to not getting enough sleep. In other words, it’s important to mix things up sometimes. This may be done whenever you have some spare time, whether that’s when you’re sleeping, reading, or watching TV. Regular exercise improves mental health in a number of ways. A decrease in tension and anxiety is one of them.

You are not permitted to bring in any booze, tobacco, or narcotics.

Consistent physical activity has been linked to improved brain function. One of the benefits is a decrease in stress and nervousness. Numerous studies have shown that stress is harmful to both mental and physical health.

If you are experiencing these symptoms, their intensity may fluctuate over time. Determine the source of your anxiety and take steps to alleviate it.

The first medical diagnosis was spot on. Our 24-hour door-to-door service is here for you if you’ve had too much to drink and are no longer safe behind the wheel.

The conclusion of each day should be spent relaxing and rejuvenating.

If you’re feeling anxious, maybe a couple of stiff drinks will help you relax. On the other hand, alcohol has the opposite effect and slows the process of dehydration by a lot.

If you keep drinking like this, things will become much worse.

Every day brings new insights, new topics that might be discussed, and new contributions I could make to our discussions. You have full confidence in your ability to succeed in your new line of work. Adding more time to your study schedule usually pays off.

Anxiety Disorder- Selfhealing Book Module 6

Weight loss (1)

  • Nearly 60% of the patients experience weight loss to a certain degree at the beginning of the illness. And weight loss of 5-10 kilograms is common. Some patients even lost 20 kilograms in just two months.
  • Here, I really can’t help but teasing. In an era when thinness is regarded beautiful. There are so many people whose efforts in losing weight are in vain.
  • In other words, you just need to improve or rectify your understanding. “Have I lost the function of digestion and absorption?
  • If I go on like this, I will be doomed.” This is the problem that many patients worry about at the beginning of the illness. So, what you are afraid of is not “losing weight”.
  • But “losing weight all the time”. In fact, this is completely “groundless worry” of the patients. After they regain their weight. Many of them even start to miss the “effortless” weight loss before.
  • Which is really amusing. To say it amusing, it is because I have the same experience. After losing 10 kilograms in a month, I was also much frightened.
  • When I recall it, I find it is an interesting “disease”. In fact, even if I don’t say it. Everyone knows part of the reason for their “abrupt weight loss”.
  • You should have no appetite currently. Sometimes you are “full” when you see food. And even some patients will have stomach pain, nausea and vomiting after eating a little bit of food.
  • Is it weird to “lose weight suddenly” with this kind of “diet”? In the previous chapters (about stomachache and gastric distention).
  • I have already mentioned the reasons why you can’t eat, so I won’t repeat them here. But I want to remind everyone that it is an eternal truth.
  • That food is an absolute necessity of people. Now, I ask you: Whether you have an appetite or not, you need to “stick to” eating. You have to eat something even if you vomit.
  • After vomiting, you can continue to eat. Have frequent mini meals temporarily. Don’t worry about whether it can be digested. The power of adrenaline is limited.

When you do like this, this situation will soon pass. You will be “gain weight” soon. Oh, by the way, don’t regret it after you “gain weight”.

Weight loss (2)

  • Everyone may have heard such remarks, “Somebody suddenly lost a lot of weight and died of cancer not long after”.
  • “Somebody was seriously ill and emaciated”. Those wrong perceptions, which are bad cognition. Acquired through thousands of channels including. Our parents and elders, relatives and friends, classmates and colleagues.

Fancied illness

  • Their subconscious believes that weight loss “for no reason” must be bad. If you can’t hold back at this time and go to google “abrupt weight loss”, “emaciation” and other keywords.
  • Results can be imagined. You are already powerful enough if not scared to death. When you are caught in the “fancied illness” from Google.
  • You will feel a wave of heat rushing out from nowhere and spreading all over the body in an instant.
  • Symptoms of cranial throbbing, sweating and palpitation then appear. There may be even a panic attack if it is serious.
  • In fact, there is another reason for weight loss. In addition to the one caused by insufficient food intake of anorexianervosa.
  • Modern medicine has found that increased secretion of adrenaline will increase consumption. While increased insulin will help store energy.
  • Great consumption makes one thin and great storage makes one fat. That is why many “weight management experts”. Are using various methods to increase your adrenaline secretion to achieve the effect of losing weight.
  • Patients with anxiety disorders have met all the criteria for “weight loss”. While you are “on a diet”, you are secreting a lot of adrenaline. So is it strange to be “thin”? Who else will be thin if it is not you?
  • Do you need to suspect other “major diseases”? You may find that I am not using the word “completely harmless” here.

As it is not acceptable whether you are dieting to lose weight or not eating because of anorexia. Try to eat even if you can’t eat. It is an effective way to get through this stage.

Agoraphobia (1)

  • In my opinion, there is really no need to subdivide situational fears. You can regard all situational fears such as driving fears, airplane fears.
  • Dense crowd fears, confined space fears, agoraphobia and etc. as agoraphobia. The difference is that each individual fear different places or situations.

About 90% of patients experience accelerated heart rate, palpitations, dizziness, weak legs. And are eager to “escape” when they experience a certain situation.



  • After the “escape”, the symptoms will naturally ease. Most agoraphobia is caused by panic attacks or more violent symptoms.
  • Ms. J is in such a situation, “I used to like traveling the most, and my favorite transportation. Is the plane, which is convenient and fast.
  • But since I have anxiety disorder, I don’t dare to fly anymore, as my first panic attack was on a plane.”
  • Miss Ye’s situation was similar, except that she had a panic attack. While she was driving and waiting for the signal light.
  • She has been deeply afraid of driving ever since. Mr. Jiang had symptoms of dizziness. In the square outside a shopping mall. For a long time, he did not dare to walk in an open place alone.
  • Agoraphobia, which is common among patients, is one of the most typical symptoms of anxiety disorder. It is undeniable that agoraphobia has caused great distress to the patients.
  • Once the patients are in these “places”, they will suffer from attacks. So they “avoid” going to these places as much as possible. And even stay inside the house.
  • However, this is not bad through careful analysis, as it just proves that your body is healthy, isn’t it? Just imagine, what kind of “major disease”.

Will occur in a specific place of the world? It would be interesting to think about the problem in a different way, perhaps.

Agoraphobia (2)

In fact, it is not difficult to overcome agoraphobia. There

are two methods:

  1. Cognitive therapy
  2. Semi-exposure therapy

Agoraphobia can be overcome quickly through a

combination of the above two methods.

  1. Cognitive therapy
  • Firstly, let’s talk about the cognitive therapy. In fact, it not difficult to find. That we are not afraid of planes, driving cars and squares.
  • What we are really afraid of is that being in these places. Will evoke memories of our past-“terrible memories of symptoms”, that is to say.
  • What we need to overcome is still fear itself. When you have enough awareness of anxiety disorder. And no longer fear or struggle with the symptoms.
  • Why are you afraid of those “places” that may cause your symptoms? As for how to overcome fear itself, it is the main purpose of this book.
  • Which aims to help everyone understand anxiety disorder and overcome fear itself. About what fear itself is.

It has been introduced in detail in the previous chapters, so I won’t repeat it here. Then we will talk about the semi-exposure therapy. If you want to understand semi-exposure therapy.

  1. Semi- exposure therapy
  • You must first know what exposure therapy is. As the name suggests, exposure therapy refers. To letting the patient directly enter a situation.
  • Which is most frightening to him and correcting the patient’s wrong understanding quickly. So as to achieve the purpose of eliminating fear.
  • In other words, the method makes you do what you dare not do and go where you dare not go. Though the exposure therapy is practical, I don’t recommend it.

Reason is simple, as exposure therapy, though effective. Has mixed advantages and drawbacks.


The time is short, and the problem-solving is

relatively straightforward.


It is difficult to implement and has a great impact on the patient’s body and mind. So it must be used with caution.

And the so-called “semi-exposure therapy” can minimize

those drawbacks through the following:

  1. Give yourself a few weeks to truly understand anxiety

Disorder. And establish a correct understanding it.

  • Try to overcome the fear itself as much as possible by

correcting cognition. And eliminating the fear of symptoms.

  • Try the “exposure therapy” after completing the initial

cognitive therapy.

  • Further undertake the “cognitive therapy” as the main

method and the “exposure therapy”. As theauxiliary method and combines the two.

This is what I call the “semi-exposure therapy”. On the one hand, it will not cause a huge impact on the body. And mind of patients one the other hand. It can help patients overcome agoraphobia in a short period of time.


  • According to a literature on tinnitus from the Outpatient Department of Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery. And Tinnitus from Oregon Health Science and Technology University.
  • Anxiety disorder is a common complication of tinnitus. In line with the classification of DSM-IV, there are many types.
  • Including generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, post traumatic stress disorder, panic disorder, etc.
  • Among those, the generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder. Post-traumatic stress disorder and panic disorder are more common in patients with tinnitus.
  • In addition to affecting the emotion and behavior of patients. Severe anxiety disorders can also cause certain physiological reactions.
  • In turn, strong physiological reactions can increase patients’fear of tinnitus, forming a vicious circle.
  • Other non-auditory problems of tinnitus can also include poor concentration. Memory loss, being upset, easy mood swings, etc.
  • These symptoms are commonly referred to in clinical practice as “neurosis II”. In fact, some of these are symptoms of anxiety disorder or depression.

And some are related to lack of sleep. If anxiety, depression, or lack of sleep is effectively improved. The above symptoms can often be eased.

Mental and psychological factors

  • Literature has confirmed that mental and psychological factors. Are inextricably linked with tinnitus, especially for patients.
  • Who have no tinnitus before or have mild symptoms. Those patients develop symptoms of tinnitus at the same time. As or after the disease (anxiety disorder), and anxiety disorder may be the main factor.
  • Likewise, you can treat tinnitus like any other symptoms. Regard it as a part of your body temporarily and actually allow it to exist.
  • As you recover from anxiety disorder, your body and emotions return to normal. The “tinnitus” caused by anxiety disorder will disappear naturally.
  • This also applies to tinnitus caused by other problems. At least, it will be nothing difficult to be greatly improved.

Insomnia (1)

  • Insomnia may be the most painful and common problem for people with anxiety disorder and depression. More than half of the patients have experienced temporary or long-term insomnia.
  • However, do you know that 99% of sleep disorders come from psychological problems. And a large part of them are just occasional insomnia caused by certain problems.
  • No matter how healthy a person is, he will have temporary insomnia due to certain problems. So, why does the little problem like insomnia cause so much trouble to everyone?
  • I have pinpointed a problem from the communication with thousands of patients. And it is precisely because of this problem that makes the treatment of “insomnia” more difficult.
  • “Insomnia” itself is not scary, what is scary is the fear of “insomnia”. People fear that insomnia will cause major harm to the body.
  • Make them out of spirits the next day, or even will lead to madness, sudden death, etc. And this incorrect cognition is the true culprit behind your “insomnia”.
  • Here, I don’t want to arbitrarily say that insomnia is harmless. And I won’t follow public opinion to judge the insomnia threat theory.
  • I just want to tell you that over the past few years. After hearing thousands of patients describe their “insomnia” symptoms.

And excluding subjective pains, I have come to a conclusion. Among so many patients who are suffering from “insomnia” symptoms of anxiety.


Depression and OCD

  • Depression and obsessive[1]compulsive disorder, no matter how severe the symptoms are.
  • There has never been a single case of major illness, madness or sudden death caused by “insomnia”. Yes, what you hear is true, there is not even a single case.
  • Are you still so afraid of “insomnia” when you hear this? At least, sleep is not as important as you think.
  • Try to fall asleep as you can and stay awake if you can’t fall asleep, so what? If you can really achieve this, then “insomnia” will be self[1]defeating. There is no need for treatment at all.
  • Remember, “insomnia” is not scary. What is scary is that you are afraid of it.

Insomnia (2)

  • Is insomnia really that scary? I have done comparison and analysis of many patients with “insomnia”. Theoretically, insomnia is the same, so the damage to the body should be the same, but in fact it is not.
  • Here I will share two interesting cases with you. Ms. Cui and Mr. Wang are both patients with anxiety and obsessive-compulsive disorder.
  • They both suffer from symptoms of “insomnia”, so damage from the same anxiety. Obsession and “insomnia” should be the same.
  • Difference is that Mr. Wang has undertaken cognitive behavioral therapy for a month. In terms of sleep, I just tell him repeatedly that sleep isn’t as important as he thinks.
  • As a result, interesting differences emerge. Ms. Cui suffers from “insomnia” every day and has difficulty in falling asleep.
  • She often can’t fall asleep at one or two o’clock in the morning. So she is very obsessed and worried about sleep. She fears that she may be out of spirits the next day or may even die suddenly.
  • She is guilty of not being able to fall asleep, which makes her almost “crazy”. When each night falls, fear is already arising.
  • She still feels even if she gets up at noon the next day. Thus she suffers greatly. Mr. Wang is different. His “insomnia” is more serious.
  • He often can’t fall asleep till three or four in the morning. And sometimes he is forced to stay up all night. However, through treatment of cognitive behavioral therapy.
  • He tries not to force himself to sleep. Sometimes he read books, listens to music, achieving “happy” “insomnia”.
  • It turns out that the on next day, Mr. Wang does not feel much discomfort. And sometimes even feels energetic. This situation is not an exception, but a common one.
  • Why are the results so different for the same insomnia? We should ponder deeply over this. Let us make a bold assumption.
  • Assume that the harm of “insomnia” to us is 1, then the harm of “fear of insomnia” is at least 10-100. Therefore, “insomnia” is not scary, what is really scary is “fear of insomnia”.
  • And if you can achieve happy insomnia, then the damage caused by insomnia to you will be infinitely close to 0.
  • After all, more than 90% of diseases are caused by negative emotions. And fear is the biggest negative emotion. Compared with fear, “insomnia” is nothing!
  • Facts have proved that when patients get rid of fear of “insomnia” and start “happy insomnia”, “insomnia” disappears surprisingly. The vast majority of patients have such a case.

So, let’s have “happy insomnia”.

Insomnia (3)

Specific ways to treat insomnia:

  1. Sleep is not as important as you think.
  2. Instead of suffering passive insomnia, it is better to be happy and have active insomnia. Close your eyes and think that by just closing the eyes and resting the mind, the body can be healthy. I should not sleep tonight, just close my eyes and rest my mind.
  3. I can listen to audio books, listen to music. Close my eyes and rest my mind and I am enjoying it.
  4. Don’t fall asleep. I will fail when I fall asleep.
  5. If your plans fail, then you have overcome insomnia.
  6. If you have successfully stayed up all night. You don’t need to worry about the second day and the third day. As sleep is the genetic code of millions of years and will not be broken by decoded you.
  7. Remember! Insomnia is not scary at all. What is scary is the fear of insomnia.
  8. Now, you can close your eyes and rest. My dear friends, have a good dream.


  • Almost every day, there are patients who say to me: “I’m cold all over, I must have a fever, but why does the thermometer show normal body temperature?
  • I am really cold.” Some friends tell me: “I am freezing but I have no fever. After covering the quilt and turning on the electric blanket for more than two hours. I do not even warm up, let alone sweat.” In fact, this is not a big problem.
  • This level of “chill” is completely tolerable for everyone, but hypochondriasis is unbearable. Some patients can’t help.
  • But suspect that they have a “major disease” again, and their fears will follow. Although other patients do not have such obvious fear. They are vaguely worried in their subconscious.
  • Wondering if there is a “problem” in their body that has not been detected. Although this kind of worry is not violent. It will prevent the adrenaline from returning to normal, and the vicious cycle continues.
  • In fact, feeling chilly is not such a terrible thing.


  • Excessive adrenaline and disordered nerves will cause your blood vessels to constrict. Which will slow down the blood circulation of the whole body.
  • Constriction of blood vessels of the skin will reduce the flow of high temperature blood to the skin. Especially for the hands and feet which are farthest from the heart.
  • Although this situation will not have any effect on the body. It does exist and it may occur frequently, accompanied by symptoms such as scalp tingling and goose bumps.
  • In fact, this situation is not unusual among healthy people. When people are nervous and afraid, it will cause such symptoms.
  • No matter how healthy people are, they will secrete more adrenaline. When nervous and anxious and their nerves will be more sensitive than usual.

For patients with anxiety disorder, the symptoms may just be more frequent.

Anxiety Disorder – Selfhealing Book Module 5

Frequent and urgent urination (2)

  • If you are diagnosed with anxiety disorder, and apart from frequent and urgent urination. There is no pain or itching, it is very likely that this is just neurogenic frequent and urgent urination.
  • If there are other symptoms such as pain, itching, occult blood, etc., don’t worry. This is most likely to be urethral inflammation.
  • You only need to do relevant examinations and receive anti-inflammatory treatment. It is just a small problem.
  • Even less likely, you may have urethral calculi. In this case, you just need to receive expulsion treatment. It is also a small problem and there is no need to make a fuss.
  • And if you are diagnosed with kidney stones (the probability is very small). You also don’t need to worry. With the help of modern medicine, it is just a common minor illness.
  • You just need to remove the stones and take medicine. Of course, there are other problems that cause frequent and urgent urination. Such as cystitis, bladder stones, or male prostatitis, etc.
  • But none of these are worthy of your fear, worry, and entanglement. As for terrifying diseases such as uremia and tumors, etc. Concluded from your “Googling”, the probability is as low as being hit by a “refrigerator”.
  • That falls from the sky for no reason. Instead of worrying about this. It is better to look up at the sky and be careful of the “refrigerator”.
  • It is just a small joke and it’s a fact. Please don’t blame me for this.

Bile reflux

  • The etiology of bile reflux gastritis is closely related to mental factors. As the normal pylorus has a high pressure zone of about 37.5px.
  • Which can prevent duodenal fluid from flowing back into the stomach. However, when normal people are mentally stressful, nervous and fearful.
  • Adrenaline in the body will increase and the nerves will respond to the stress. Resulting in pyloric hypertensive spasm.
  • Original one-way channel closure is disordered, and reflux will occur. Similarly, there is another situation.
  • When the human body is under negative emotions such as tension and fear. Increased adrenaline will stimulate the gastrointestinal autonomic nerves.
  • Which leads to changes in the excitability of the gastrointestinal nerves. And disturbance of the secretion of gastrointestinal hormones.
  • Resulting in increased gastrointestinal motility, spasm and excessive bile secretion. This can also promote the occurrence of bile reflux.
  • This is especially true for patients with anxiety disorder. Even if you are not nervous or anxious, as your nerves are already in a disordered state.
  • You will also experience the stress response of normal people in a state of tension and fear. And bile reflux is natural. Not to mention patients with anxiety disorder are often in a state of tension and fear.
  • So, you don’t need to worry and be afraid, as this is not a major disease. If your doctor tells you that it is not a big problem or does not ask you to have further examinations.
  • It means that your bile reflux is not caused by other problems. There is no need to pay too much attention. As this reflux will cause no substantial permanent damage.

Except that it will make you a little “heartburn” and “nauseous”, at most it will cause some inflammation. It will also get lighter as you recover from the anxiety disorder, until it disappears.

Take exercise properly

  • Like other symptoms, it is not a big deal. These symptoms caused by anxiety will gradually disappear as you recover. For the rest, I can only kindly remind you not to sit and bow your heads for a long time.
  • Taking exercise properly will be of great benefit to you. In addition, there is another situation, which accounts for about 1% of the thousands of patients I have encountered.
  • That is the anxiety disorder that cervical spondylosis

imitates, namely, the sympathetic cervical spondylosis.

Sympathetic cervical spondylosis

  • Anxiety disorder can imitate cervical spondylosis, and interestingly. Cervical spondylosis can also imitate anxiety disorder. Which is sympathetic cervical spondylosis.
  • Although this situation is very unlikely to happen, it still exists. Therefore, if you have sympathetic cervical spondylosis, then congratulations.
  • You only need to solve your cervical spondylosis. And your “anxiety disorder”will be cured naturally. As the two symptoms are very similar, how to distinguish the two situations has become the only problem.
  • Next, I will explain the difference between the two: Sympathetic cervical spondylosis, as the name suggests, is cervical lesions (protrusion, bulging, vertebral instability, etc.). The lesions compress the sympathetic nerves.

Which cause sympathetic nervous system disorders. Like anxiety disorders, most of the disorders are sympathetic excitation and a few are sympathetic inhibition.

Distinguish between anxiety disorder and

sympathetic cervical spondylosis

  • Seeing this, will you feel that it is exactly the same as anxiety disorder and cannot be distinguished at all? In fact it is not so.
  • Indeed, from the perspective of physical symptoms alone. It is difficult to distinguish between anxiety disorder and sympathetic cervical spondylosis.
  • As they are both symptoms caused by sympathetic nerve disorders. However, the difference is obvious.
  • In addition to disorders of the sympathetic nervous system. Anxiety disorders also include abnormalities in neurotransmitters. Amygdala, emotional brain and cognitive brain in the third brain.
  • Those lead to physical symptoms and negative emotions. Such as worry and confusion, etc. for patients with anxiety disorder.
  • And these negative emotions have further become “symptoms”. That make the patients with anxiety disorder suffer.
  • Patients with sympathetic cervical spondylosis do not have or rarely have such emotions. As their sympathetic nervous disorder is physical and caused by oppression.
  • There is discomfort, but the related catastrophic thinking is not obvious. The symptoms will ease or aggravate along with the situations of cervical spondylosis.

And these two points are the biggest difference between sympathetic cervical spondylosis and anxiety disorder,


  1. There is no or few catastrophic thinking. Related to sympathetic cervical spondylosis with cervical comfort.
  2. Symptoms are either light or heavy. Reaching here, if you suspect that you have sympathetic cervical spondylosis. Then take exercise, as scientific and reasonable exercise is very helpful for the recovery of cervical spine.

If your symptoms of cervical spondylosis are serious. Then go to the hospital as soon as possible. And let an orthopaedic specialist treat your “anxiety disorder”.

  • Breakdown is a kind of psychological state in which some patients are struggling under the “huge” pain. Due to lack of understanding and cognition of anxiety disorder.
  • They fall into greater fear, worrying and fearing every moment of the day with entanglement. Their attention is constantly focused. Making this “huge” pain more ferocious and seemingly invincible.
  • There are also some patients who, due to long-term torture of anxiety disorder. Will suddenly experience depression, which is violent and unstoppable.
  • At this time, the breakdown appears, and some patients even exclaim: “I will never recover”.
  • “This life is over”; “I can’t endure it”, and so on. You may be in despair at this time and the despair is likely to be catastrophic.
  • So, give up the struggle, don’t fight, don’t bear with it. Give up any treatment and ventilate all your emotions by crying loud.
  • Even if you can’t cry out, you can turn to a moving video or memory to help you “cry”. Purpose of doing this is not to let you vent. You can regard it as a healing task.
  • By “crying loudly”, your body can secrete more serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine). Which has the effect of regulating emotions. And helping make dopamine in your body work better.

It is an important neurotransmitter for anti-anxiety and antidepressant.

Crying loudly

  • Use “crying loudly” to help you navigate through the “breakdown”. As for the rest, we will solve them tomorrow.

When you wake up, new “power” will fill your whole body again, who knows.


  • Sweaty palms, sweaty body and even tingling are often accompanied by symptoms. Such as nervousness, palpitation, arrhythmia, or panic attacks, etc.
  • Of course, simple sweating is also common. The former is a stress response of anxiety symptoms. Such as nervousness and palpitations.
  • While the latter is simply caused by an oversensitivity of the nerves that control your sweat glands.This is also common for normal people.
  • When they are in a state of nervousness and anxiety. As when they are in such a state, their adrenaline will also be excessively secreted. And the nerves will also become sensitive.

At this time, sweating is just a manifestation of sympathetic nerve excitation.

Sympathetic nerve excitement

  • And for many patients with anxiety disorder, even if they are not nervous and anxious. They are still likely to have sweaty palms, tremors, tingling. Or sweating all over the body, as their nerves are “broken”.
  • And the sympathetic nerve excitement may appear anytime and anywhere. Sweating becomes normal, not to mention you are likely to be extremely nervous.
  • Anxious and even fearful and afraid at this time. In fact, you don’t need to worry at all. This is not caused by the “physical weakness” you have imagined.
  • Nor is it a serious disease that is deeply hidden. It will not affect your using of your hands. What it is capable of is just sweating. Many patients are so worried that they send pictures of sweaty palms to me.
  • Asking why they are sweating so much over and over again. For fear that I might miss any detail, while telling me of their worries.
  • When I explain to them why this is happening. They let out a long sigh of relief and the “sweating” fades away. Like other symptoms, sweating is just a typical symptom of anxiety disorder.
  • As you learn and understand more about the pathology. This correct perception will eventually replace your original wrong perception.
  • You will give up the reason for nervousness and fear. And a virtuous circle will occur, that is, anxiety symptoms correct cognition-no longer fear.

Be anxious and nervous adrenaline secretion slows down-symptoms. Ease adrenaline restore balance-nerve repair. And the completion of nerve repair means you are fully cured.

Scientific conclusion

  • At this time, patients may often associate with a terrible term. Which is insufficient blood supply to the brain. Thinking of this word, fear and worry will inevitably follow.
  • In fact, from a medical point of view, even serious cervical spondylosis. Will not cause insufficient blood supply to the brain.
  • This is a scientific conclusion drawn by modern medicine. Which studies the special blood supply system of the brain (this is almost the consensus of all never physicians and neurosurgeons, and I will not exceed my authority to talk about science here).
  • As a patient with anxiety disorder, the continuous muscle tension in the waist. Back and neck caused by nerve disorder will lead to poor blood circulation.
  • Which will cause back pain, tight neck, short muscles, and stretching pain. If coupled with a little muscle strain. It will make you even more overwhelmed.
  • What is worse, the sensitive nerves will amplify this feeling infinitely. And the hard feeling can be imagined.
  • If your nervousness and fear increase at this time and the nerves continue to fluctuate. The blood vessels will contract and expand more frequently.

An uncomfortable feeling of “excessive blood” will appear. Which will further increase your anxiety.

Slow heartbeat

  • “I can’t feel my heartbeat anymore!”; “I don’t seem to have a pulse anymore!”.
  • “Look! My heart rate is just over forty!”, “I feel so empty in my heart and my whole chest is heavy and stuffy.
  • It seems that the heart and lungs are not working, especially at night.” I have heard things like this from too many patients. Although they are not as frequent as tachycardia and arrhythmia.
  • They are not infrequent. In terms of fear alone, they are even worse. At this time, horrible words such as “heart failure” and “cardiac arrest”.
  • Will constantly emerge in the minds of patients, and negative emotions. Such as panic and fear will arise spontaneously. The body also seems to become sluggish, weak and groggy.
  • By feeling your pulse, blood pressure, and heart rate over and over again. You become more and more panicked and concerned. And the vicious circle is turned on again.
  • In fact, it is normal for many athletes to have a heart rate of just more than 40 or 50. And it will not cause any permanent damage to you.
  • Remember the sympathetic and parasympathetic nerves I mentioned before? It is only caused by the overreaction of the parasympathetic nerves. Whose function is to inhibit the sympathetic nerves.
  • Since you are currently in a state of autonomic disorder. Excessive inhibition of the parasympathetic nerves or overreaction of the vasovagal nerves.
  • Has resulted in “bradycardia”, which in deed won’t affect you much. You don’t need to worry that it is getting slower and the heartbeat will stop, as those won’t happen.
  • Do you remember? The power of a nervous disorder is limited. And it has displayed its greatest power. It will be difficult to convince you of this at the beginning.
  • However, as you understand more about how it works, the fear it poses to you will gradually lessen. When you get rid of the vicious circle.

The symptoms will eventually disappear. After you achieve true psychological recovery through correct cognition.

Panic Attack (2)

  • Whether it is because of doctor’s words or sense of security in the hospital. All your symptoms will obviously improve at this time and you feel “saved”.
  • When you experience a panic attack for the first time. What you don’t know is that your body secretes adrenaline in large quantities in order to protect you.
  • Also when you encounter a major dangerous situation. Which makes you have the “fight” or “flee” instinct. It will provide you with strength, speed and response.
  • At the cost of increased heart rate, palpitations, chest tightness, shortness of breath, nausea and other physical symptoms.
  • This is human instinct, and it is just a stress response made by the body to protect you. There is no real harm to you. Unfortunately, although this effective stress response of “fight” or “flee” can protect you.
  • It does not mean it is correct, as it is a spontaneous response. Especially after you are held by negative emotions or shocks for a long time.
  • Which causes your nerves to become disordered. Your “nerves” will incorrectly “believe”. That you are in a dangerous state and make a wrong response. Under the stimulation of certain specific environments and reasons.
  • In fact, if you have understood the mechanism of panic attack. You will not be influenced by misunderstandings at the beginning of each panic attack.
  • You can examine and analyze this feeling. So that you are not frightened or afraid. It is very likely that your panic attacks won’t even start and will go away quickly.
  • The symptoms will not get worse if they don’t go away. It may not be easy to achieve this at first, but as you become more familiar with the mechanism of panic attacks.
  • You can definitely make it, remember! Panic attacks are not terrible, you just need to cut off the “vicious cycle”, it is nothing more than that.
  • When you achieve it the first time, then the second and third time will be easy. For a patient who suffers from frequent panic attacks, three times is enough.

I even doubt whether it will appear again. Of course, what if it does? After all, you are already the winner of this battle. In the face of a loser, how can it harm you?

Panic attack (3)

  • I have done much research on the coping methods of panic attacks. And have summarized various methods in clinical practice.
  • But so far, none of them can compete with the method of Dr. Claire Weekes. Now I have made some changes to her method and want to teach it to you.
  • You can practice it regularly as except for panic attacks. It is effective for almost most symptoms, including thinking symptoms.
  • Among what Dr. Claire Weekes said about facing it, accepting it, relaxing, and waiting.

In fact, the most important thing is to face it. Not to accept it directly by skipping “facing it”.


  • The so-called self-regulation or direct distraction is actually a false acceptance. Which has a comforting effect but not a therapeutic effect.
  • Of course, no matter how good the method is. You still need to practice with your usual symptoms.
  • Have you noticed that the more afraid you are, the more uncomfortable it will be? And vice verse.
  • It is terrifying, and it is a vicious cycle. So, why not sit down, find a comfortable position. Relax as much as you can, close your eyes.
  • And imagine that your eyelids are so heavy that you can’t open them no matter how hard you try. After you enter this state, carefully understand your symptoms.
  • Fully experience all your discomfort, use your mind to control it, and make your heart beat faster! your blood pressure slightly higher.
  • all your pain worse and your bad mood worse! You will find that you can’t make your condition worse as the power of adrenaline is limited.

And that is it at best. Once you do this, it shows that you are viewing it with interest. You show contempt and the symptoms will only gradually ease as you relax.

Panic attack (4)

  • The second type of panic attack may be more frightening than the first to some degree. As the first acts primarily on the body.
  • While the second acts on your “mind”. For patients who do not have such problems, please skip this chapter.
  • I feel that my mind has entered a black hole, which is out of my control. I am scared as it reminds me of “mental patients”.
  • Are they like this before they become “mental patients”? I am so scared and I can’t control my fear.
  • Some patients describe their own experiences like this. Other patients also say to me, “I feel like I am out of control, my thoughts are out of my control. And it seems like I am going crazy. My God, what should I do? I’m going crazy.”


  • Don’t get me wrong, folks. Although most patients like to talk about their symptoms endlessly when they chat. The “nagging” in the title does not refer to everyone. But refers to myself.
  • By reading the book from the very beginning till now. You may wonder why the author talks about these issues repeatedly. Couldn’t the author be simpler and clearer by just telling me the methods to recover?
  • I am really sorry, as there is no such “simple methods” in the world. If you want a complete recovery, please put up with my nagging for some more time.
  • In fact, the only purpose of my writing this book is to cure anxiety disorder completely. If you want to cure anxiety, you must repair the nerve.

If you want to repair the nerve, you must give it enough time and space to let it heal itself. If you want to meet this condition, you must overcome the fear itself.

Correct your misconceptions

  • If you want to overcome the fear itself, you must correct your misconceptions about anxiety disorder (such as the first reaction of palpitations is heart disease).
  • However, wrong perceptions are imprinted in our subconscious for decades. Through thousands of channels such as parents and elders, relatives and friends, classmates and colleagues, TV networks, etc.
  • How can it be easy to make a change? Therefore, I can only ramble and repeat my points to youover and over again.

Through “nagging”, I trying my best to imprint the correct understanding of anxiety disorder. In your subconscious and eliminate the wrong cognition.


  • I aspire to help everyone overcome the fear itself. So as to create conditions for the self-healing of the nerves, and finally achieve the purpose of healing.
  • You must know that many patients do not have the patience to finish the book. And some patients will only read part of the book by focusing on their own symptoms.
  • That is why I repeat at the end of each chapter: “As your understanding of the anxiety disorder gets deeper. You overcome the fear itself and your nerves repair. The symptoms will gradually ease and finally disappear.”
  • The reasons of my doing this are that I want everyone to see it, and also to impress you.

In fact, I have already deleted two-thirds of the book’s content. As I worry that some patients will not have the patience to finish it. If you can’t concentrate on it, then

Sense of hunger

  • “The sense of hunger is unbearable as soon as it is time to eat. When eating is delayed by other things, I will panic.”
  • “I feel so hungry, but in fact I have just eaten something. The sense of hunger is driving me crazy.”
  • This situation is ridiculous for normal people and it is also inconceivable for patients. With anxiety disorder who do not have similar symptoms.
  • Why not just eat something when you are hungry? Why not just bear with it for just the moment? This is what most people think.
  • But they have forgotten the particularity of autonomic disorders. Some patients have panic attacks which are caused by stomach symptoms.
  • Similar to “sense of hunger” and some experience “sense of hunger” when there are panic attacks. In fact, this is the same as when many patients have panic attacks or symptoms for the first time. They are driving, sleeping or in a square, etc.
  • The “horrible memory” makes it impossible for them to forget the fear of that moment. Which will come with driving, sleeping, being in a square, or feeling hungry.

In fact, this is also an anticipatory anxiety, as what everyone is afraid of is not the sense of hunger. But the fear that hunger will cause them to have symptoms.


  • Diarrhea symptoms, like stomach cramps, are the stress response of the intestines. When humans encounter negative emotions such as great fear and sadness.
  • It is also called irritable bowel syndrome, which is also known as intestinal dysfunction. It also belongs to the autonomic disorder (patients with simple irritable bowel syndrome are not considered here).
  • The purpose is also to discharge all things you eat, instead of vomiting, it is diarrhea.
  • Well, the answer is obvious, as autonomic disorder can be classified as one of the anxiety disorders. For patients with anxiety disorder.
  • Their disordered gastrointestinal nerves often mistakenly think that they need protection. So a stress response is ignited and diarrhea becomes normal again.
  • It is normal, isn’t it? Especially when you are nervous, angry, or afraid. This situation may become more obvious.
  • This does not mean that there is a major problem in your intestines. But it proves to you once again that this is just an “emotional illness”.
  • Otherwise, why is it easier to have diarrhea when you are nervous, excited, and fearful?

Remember, this may continue for a while until your nerve is completed repaired. All you have to do is actually allow it to exist, take it for granted, and wait patiently.


  • Regarding constipation, yes, we will talk about it. In addition to diarrhea. Constipation is also common in patients with anxiety disorder.
  • Patients often have difficulty in defecation or have decreased defecation. Most patients have either diarrhea or constipation and a small number of patients have both of them.
  • Symptoms switch from time to time. Patients often imagine such a normal problem as “intestinal obstruction” or other major diseases such as intestinal tumors.
  • Otherwise, why would you be constipated? Especially for patients who switch back and forth between constipation and diarrhea symptoms.
  • There is always a situation where they suddenly want to defecate but cannot make it, which is the so-called “tenesmus”.
  • In fact, this is not an incomprehensible situation. Normal people may be also like this when they experience emotional changes.
  • But their frequency may be lower and that of the patients with anxiety disorder is higher. Contrary to diarrhea (when sympathetic nerve excitation leads to fast gastrointestinal peristalsis).
  • Excitation of parasympathetic nerve or vagus nerve will lead to slow gastrointestinal peristalsis. Lack of motivation will naturally lead to constipation. So this is not a big problem.
  • It is just that the parasympathetic nerve is overly inhibiting the excitation of the sympathetic nerve.
  • Please remember, it has already displayed its greatest power to make you constipated. It can neither block your digestion and absorption, nor cause serious organic problems.

It can only lead to gastrointestinal dysfunction, which is nothing to worry about. So please accept it, treat it as a part of your body and allow it to exist for a while. It is a bit annoying, but that’s all.

Frequent and urgent urination (1)

  • Frequent and urgent urination really makes many patients distressed. It will not only make you overwhelmed. But also make you hypochondriacal, wondering if there is a problem with the urethra, the bladder, or even the kidneys.

At this time, you can’t help but “Googling” your symptoms again. Then the symptoms will range from nephritis, which is in mild, to uremia and tumors, which are severe.


  • First of all, frequent and urgent urination caused by anxiety disorder is very common. For some people, the symptom will last for a few days, and for others, it may last for several months.
  • The reason is actually very simple. From a neurological point of view, the function of urination is controlled by the sympathetic nerve.
  • Generally, when enough urine accumulates in the bladder, it will form pressure on the bladder nerve.
  • The pressure excitation is transmitted through nerve endings. To the sympathetic nerve that controls urination, causing sympathetic nerve excitation.
  • Which triggers the urge to urinate. It then promotes the contraction of the urinary bladder muscle to complete urination.
  • Patients with anxiety disorder have frequent sympathetic activation, which can cause many symptoms. As the sympathetic nerve that controls urination is frequently excited. It is normal for frequent and urgent urination.
  • It is not a big deal and it’s just a bit “annoying”. Frequent and urgent urination caused by autonomic disorder won’t do you any harm and it is just a neural response.
  • Your nerves are currently “broken”, so they respond incorrectly from time to time, is there a problem? All you have to do is understand it and allow it to exist.
  • Conversely, it is harmful to have fear, worry, and entanglement just because you don’t understand it.

With the reduction of your fear, the excitation of the sympathetic nerve will no longer be frequent. And it will gradually ease until finally disappears.

Anxiety Disorder- Selfhealing Book Module 3

Heart Burning 2

  • In fact, “tachycardia”, “arrhythmia” and “st wave change”are common in normal people. When normal people are anxious, fearful and nervous.
  • Due to the surge of adrenaline and excitement of the cardiac sympathetic nerves, these symptoms will also appear. This is true for normal people, not to mention those with anxiety disorder.
  • Since the autonomic nervous system has been disturbed. This will happen for patients with anxiety disorder even if they do not have negative emotions.
  • In fact, it is just the wrong stress response of the body. So, remember, you do have fallen ill! Your nerve is indeed “ill” , though it is harmless, it is really ill!
  • There is no need to doubt this, and there is no need to question the doctor’s judgment. Just because you “do not understand”.
  • If that doesn’t dispel your doubts, then let’s take a look at

Reasons why you are so uncomfortable

The reasons why you are so uncomfortable. The reasons


  1. First of all, the adrenaline is secreted to your organs

through the nerve endings and stimulates your heart

muscle wall. This stimulation will cause your heart to tingle, or lead to discomfort in the chest area. Arrhythmia, premature beats, pain in the back and discomfort under the ribs, etc.

Mechanism of Adrenaline

  • Let’s talk about the second point. The stimulation of excess adrenaline and disorder of the nerves. Will lead to cardiovascular contraction.
  • This contraction will inevitably cause changes in the blood flow rate and make your heart blood flow faster. As a result, tachycardia, tingling or dull pain in the heart, and discomfort in the chest area will arise.
  • In addition, due to instability of the nerves and the cardiovascular contraction. Arrhythmia, premature beats, and st wave changes will occur. Also, these symptoms are likely to be with you for some time, possibly weeks or even months.
  • But don’t worry, these symptoms are completely harmless to you. Aside from being uncomfortable, they won’t cause you any permanent damage.
  • You have to know that the “severe reaction” you feel is just a small fluctuation to your heart. The heart is afraid of blockage. But it is not afraid of this small fluctuation.
  • Trust me, these symptoms will fade and disappear as your nerves recover. Regarding this, Dr. Claire Weekes once said that as long as you rule out organic problems.
  • A healthy heart can beat at a rate of more than 200 per minute for hours or even days without any damage.
  • You know, before Dr. Claire Weekes became the top psychologist in the world. She had worked as a physician all her life. She definitely knew how

strong your heart is.

Heart discomfort (3)

Another cause of heart discomfort is the narrowing of blood vessels.

There are two reasons for the narrowing of blood vessels:

  1. The first one is high blood lipids for many years. Coronary atherosclerosis, which is the most worrying coronary heart disease. Is caused by high blood lipids for many years.
  2. In layman’s terms, it means that the blood is dirty. And the walls of the blood vessels are attached by dirty things.
  3. So that the original diameters of blood vessels will change from ten to nine, even to eight. Due to the narrowing of the blood vessels, the blood pressure will rise.
  4. Causing symptoms like heart discomfort, tingling and dizziness, etc. This is the so-called cardiovascular and cerebrovascular disease (in medical terms, the blood supply of the arterial intima. And part of the medial membrane is supplied by the lumen. The oxygen and nutrients in the blood penetrate directly into the intima and medial membrane. The easy penetration of the lipids causes the disease. I want to restate here that this is a book written for patients. And those who do not understand medical theory need not delve into it).
  5. In other words, since 95-99% of coronary heart disease is caused by coronary atherosclerosis. For patients who do not have long-term high blood lipids, there is no need to worry.
  6. The second one is neurological disorder. The nerves of patients with anxiety disorder are sensitive, disordered.
  7. Which fluctuate greatly, resulting in intermittent and non[1]intermittent contraction of blood vessels. This temporary contraction will also change the diameter of your blood vessels.

From ten to nine or even eight, which also causes the symptoms of high blood pressure. Or fluctuation of blood pressure and unstable blood pressure.

Narowing of blood vessels

  • Of course, due to the narrowing of blood vessels, in addition to blood pressure, the biggest impact is heart rate.
  • It is imaginable that with the same blood supply. The narrowed blood vessels require faster blood flow. And faster blood flow requires the heart to pump blood faster and more powerfully.
  • This is just a protective measure made by the brain in order to meet the needs of the body. And this protective measure is the reason for your tachycardia and aggravation of your heartbeat. Do you still feel scary about this?
  • Heart discomfort (4)
  • In either case, there is no danger “at this time”. Even if your blood vessel diameter is always kept at eight. Except for discomfort, there is no danger and it will not cause any harm to your body.
  • Why do I say there is no danger “at this time”? This is the fundamental difference between cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases and anxiety disorder.
  • If you are in the first situation, which is a real cardiovascular disease. When your blood vessel walls become dirtier and thicker with the accumulation of garbage.
  • Diameter of the blood vessels will become six, five and even four. At this time, when the speed of garbage accumulation becomes faster.
  • And the blockage becomesmore serious, danger will come. It will further deteriorate to three, two and one, until it is completely blocked.
  • This is the real cardiovascular and cerebrovascular disease. At this time, real danger appears. It is very simple to rule out this situation.
  • As long as you have done an examination and ruled out organic problems, you do not need to worry in the short term.
  • And if you have ruled out organic problems, or the so called arrhythmia, tachycardia, st wave changes, etc.

Narrowing of blood vessels

  • Then, I want to say congratulations, you are just a patient with anxiety disorder. Even if your anxiety disorder is the most serious.
  • Then no matter how severe and disordered the nerve sensitivity is, its power is also limited. The degree of vasoconstriction is only to make the diameter of the blood vessels change. From ten to nine and to eight at most, which is its limit.
  • There is no such thing as getting narrower and narrower, and there is no danger at all. All it can do is to cause symptoms such as heart tingling. High blood pressure, discomfort in the chest area, and rapid heart rate, etc.
  • You must know that all the discomfort caused by neurologicaldisorders has limited power. Except for feeling uncomfortable.

There will be no permanent damage. Yes, I mention again that there is no harm. I will restate this point for dozens or hundreds of times in the future.

Awareness of anxiety disorder

  • As long as I can make you assured, even if I repeat it for 10,000 times, I will not hesitate. For patients with anxiety disorder, knowing this is enough.

As your awareness of anxiety disorder becomes deeper. Your hypochondriasis and fear will all disappear. At this time, you have taken an important step towards recovery.

Steps towards recovery

You need to:

  1. Trust your doctor
  2. Understand anxiety disorder scientifically
  3. Let go of misconceptions about the heart
  4. Not dread
  5. Not be afraid
  6. Not be entangled

Wait patiently


  • For many patients, dizziness is one of the most unbearable symptoms. And they can’t believe that such serious dizziness is only caused by anxiety.
  • In fact, dizziness of most patients is tolerable, especially after they get used to it, it is even easy to endure.
  • However, the fear caused by dizziness is unbearable for anyone. The “idea” that “I” may faint at any time and place is like the lingering gangrene of the bone.
  • Some patients are worried about “cerebral infarction” and are afraid of dying. Some more patients are afraid of being embarrassed after “fainting”.

Anticipatory anxiety makes you stuck in a vicious circle.

Dizziness and Heart discomfort

In fact, dizziness and heart discomfort are the same.

  1. First of all, adrenaline stimulates your brain and cerebral cortex through the nerve endings. After the cerebral cortex is stimulated, it will block the transmission of signals.
  2. Which will cause you to have dizziness or displacement dizziness and neural headache. On the other hand, we all know that high blood pressure can make people dizzy.
  3. And anxiety itself is a disorder of the autonomic nervous system. The disordered nerves cause the tiny blood vessels in your brain to constrict.
  4. Resulting in changes in blood pressure, and this pressure causes you to have bloody dizziness. It may appear when you are anticipating anxiety.
  5. It may also appear before or after a meal, or it can even appear continuously for no reason. Although this situation is harmless (the reasons have been mentioned before, I will not repeat them here). It will definitely make you feel uncomfortable.
  6. Similarly, after you have ruled out organic problems, you don’t need to worry at all. As this level of dizziness will neither lead to faint nor cerebral infarction.
  7. Among the feedback by thousands of patients, except for some patients who fall to the ground. Because of excessive fear, weak legs and lack of courage to “stand”.

There is no real case of “fainting” due to dizziness or loss of consciousness. You can rest assured about this. And these symptoms will also disappear as you recover from anxiety disorder.


  • Headache is one of the most unbearable of all symptoms. Sometimes, it is like a hoop spell, tightly restraining your head and making your scalp feel tight.
  • Numb or even tingling; sometimes, it is like a swollen and painful point in the heads. Some patients describe it as: “I really want to open my head and put my hand in it for a massage.”
  • Some patients reflect that headache is like a needle sticking. It is so unendurable that they want to hit the wall.
  • However, most headache symptoms can be relieved by different degrees through massaging the scalp.
  • Temples, cervical vertebrae and shoulders, which means that your headache is only neurological. And at most it is caused by insufficient blood flow. Rather than the “lump” you imagined.
  • Real brain disease cannot be relieved by these methods. Since nerves in the head are dense and the symptoms of headache and dizziness are caused by the nerves.
  • Symptoms will be stubborn until they are fully cured. At this time, painkillers are a good choice. Although they are not helpful for treatment. They can temporarily relieve the pain.
  • When you can’t stand it, taking one is actually harmless. As it can be quickly excreted with the body’s metabolism.
  • There is no need to have a psychological burden.The real treatment still requires you to be free from dread. Fear and entanglement about the symptoms.

After achieving this, please wait patiently and give the nerves enough time and space to repair. And this situation will gradually ease. The headache will eventually go away.

Shortness of breath

  • Shortness of breath or difficulty in deep breathing, or chest tightness and shortness of breath for some people. Is one of the most typical symptoms of anxiety disorder.
  • Some people may suddenly become unable to breathe when it attacks. And are nearly frightened to death. In this way, the symptoms become more severe.

Chest tightness and shortness of breath are caused by excess adrenaline stimulation. And disordered nerves, which cause spasms in the lung muscles and chest muscles.

Spasm in the lung muscles

  • Spasm is the main reason why you feel chest tightness and shortness of breath. For patients who suddenly feel that they can’t breathe, don’t worry.
  • This situation is nothing more than an intense spasm. Shortness of breath is sometimes accompanied by a foreign body sensation in the throat.
  • And sometimes accompanied by nasal congestion. At this time, the patients feel like being strangled by a big hand, and they “feel” unable to breathe.
  • Panic attacks will occasionally come, and words fail to describe the feeling. Actually, you don’t need to worry.
  • Let’s compare the lung to a balloon, and spasm will cause the balloon to contract and expand. From the original 50-100 to the current 55-95, or even 60-90, and that’s the limit.
  • Do you remember the power of adrenaline is limited? This level of spasm will never make your oxygen insufficient, nor will it cause you any substantial and permanent damage.

But it does make you feel uncomfortable. The discomfort is not due to lack of oxygen. But simply because you are used to the “normal” state you were before.


  • When many patients are completely unaware of the situation. They will be afraid of the feeling of lack of oxygen, and even try to breathe rapidly.
  • This will make the symptoms worse. Even a normal person will suffer from lack of carbon dioxide in the body. Due to excessive ventilation, which will lead to symptoms such as dizziness, suffocation, nausea and vomiting, etc.
  • If this happens, don’t worry, Dr. Claire Weekes has taught us a method: find a plastic bag, slowly inhale and exhale and it can relieve the symptoms.
  • After knowing the reason for the difficulty in deep breathing, do you still feel so frightened? Accept it and don’t pay too much attention to your breathing.
  • As you accept it, this feeling willslowly go away. There is no need to hurry even if it doesn’t go away.
  • With your step-by-step correction of understanding of the anxiety symptoms. And your psychological recovery, your adrenaline will gradually return to a normal state.

And your nerves will have enough time and space to repair. Everything will go back to the way it was before.

Panic attack (1)

  • The words panic attack can be deemed as the most appropriate description for this symptom. This is an anxiety symptom of intermittent attacks.
  • Many patients start their journey of anxiety disorder from panic attacks. And some patients have other symptoms for a long time before the panic attack occurs.
  • But in either case, it is an “unforgettable” experience for any patient who experiences panic attack for the first time. Many people will call for first aid, call for help and can’t even speak a word.
  • Few people can remain calm when they experience their first panic attack. And even those with great courage and perseverance may only barely endure it.
  • Dear patients, this is not a shameful thing. It is not “timid as a mouse” in the eyes of ordinary people, nor is it “thinking too much” and “moaning about nothing”.
  • It is a near-death experience, and it is real. Even those of great courage and perseverance cannot escape by sheer luck.

Take Tony Stark (Iron Man) in “Iron Man 3” for example.

Person with panic attack vs Healthy person

  • When the panic attack occurs, he can only run into his armor to take a body examination. He thought he had a serious heart disease.
  • When he was diagnosed as ananxiety disorder, he was also dumbfounded and speechless.
  • A healthy person cannot understand this situation. Even the smartest person and the best doctor in the world.
  • Are never able to understand as long as he has not experienced it. This is why patients with anxiety disorder are so hopeless and helpless.
  • And it is also the fundamental reason why I write this book. A stranger may think: “Why does he think so much?”; “Why doesn’t he cheer up?”; “He is groaning without a real illness”.
  • Relatives, friends, parents and elders around you may tell you: “Don’t think too much”; “Don’t be afraid, you are not ill”; “Be strong and brave”.
  • “You just think too much”; “Your illness is merely imagined” and so on. They think the words are good for you, and indeed they are for your own good. There is no doubt about this.
  • However, it is a pity that such words cannot bring you the slightest sense of help or security.
  • Instead, they may make many patients who are impatient feel disgusted. This is not to say that these patients are not kind enough.

But due to huge torment of pain and fear, this kind of nonsense will only lead to the opposite effect.

Panic attack (2)

  • The first type of panic disorder is the most likely to occur. Patients are initially startled by a sudden onset of symptoms similar to those of a heart attack.
  • Then symptoms like palpitation, arrhythmia, chest tightness and shortness of breath will follow one after another.
  • The first reaction of patients at this time is that there is a heart disease. Negative emotions such as tension, panic and fear, etc. will emerge in the brain.
  • At this time, the power of adrenaline starts to explode. Making your symptoms such as palpitations become worse. And your more intense negative emotions can’t be suppressed.
  • When this “value” accumulates to a certain level, you can no longer bear it. As “the near-death sense” appears, and the strong feeling.
  • That you are about to die instantly overwhelms you. There are some patients who are particularly strong psychologically.
  • According to their descriptions, the situation is as follows: “I felt like I had a heart attack. At first, I was very afraid, then I overcame most of this fear. And the situation improved.
  • But I suddenly thought of my family, my parents and my children. When I thought of them, I couldn’t stop my fear, as I couldn’t help thinking.
  • If something happened to me, what would they do? Who would take care of my parents? Who would take care of the children?
  • The emergence of this idea made me lose resistance all of a sudden. I completely fell, and the sense of near-death appeared as it should be.”
  • This is why more than half of the patients choose to call for first aid or help at this time. The funny thing is that when you are sent to “first aid”.

Doctor can’t detect any “big” problem. When the doctor tells you that the situation is not serious. You will feel relieved while questioning the result.

Anxiety Disorder Selfhealing Module 2

Overcome the fear

  • If you are not afraid of such uncomfortable symptoms like a normal person. Then congratulations, you have successfully cut off this vicious cycle.
  • Blocked the second injury, the third injury or even the 10000th injury. In other words, you have successfully overcome the fear itself.
  • And the real overcoming of fear itself is nothing more than that when each time the symptoms come. You can be free from dread, fear and entanglement.
  • Achieving this means that you have recovered psychologically. Psychological recovery may not make the symptoms disappear.
  • But it means that you have entered the recovery period. All you have to do is wait.
  • Moreover, patients who achieve real recovery through psychological rehabilitation will never have a relapse.
  • It is really not a dream.Therefore, how to overcome the fear itself is the top priority in the treatment of anxiety disorder.
  • Many patients will ask: “There are so many symptoms, I am so uncomfortable with hypochondriasis. I fear myocardial and cerebral infarction, madness and death.
  • How can I not be afraid?” Indeed, how can a patient with hypochondriasis overcome the fear itself?
  • When you lack awareness of anxiety disorder, it is almost impossible to get rid of hypochondriasis, dread and fear.

But don’t worry, this is precisely the purpose of my writing this book here.

Hypochondriasis (1)

  • As a general term, hypochondriasis is one of the most important links. That must be overcome in the recovery of anxiety disorder.
  • You may have a deep understanding of when the symptoms come. Most patients will go through such a vicious circle of processes more or less: symptoms appear- doubt – hypochondriasis – fear – more sensitive nerve – adrenaline surge – more symptoms – more fear – adrenaline continues to soar.
  • So, how can we get rid of hypochondriasis? It is impossible to achieve this just by going to the hospital for examination.

From the feedback of many patients, too many have done examinations again and again. They will breathe a sigh of relief after each examination.

After session with doctor

After the doctor tells them that there is no problem with their body or there is just a small problem.

  • At this time, your body and mind will relax all of a sudden. So that many symptoms will temporarily disappear.
  • Even if they do not disappear, they seem to become less important. But what about the second day and the third day?
  • When the symptoms appear again, or when the symptoms persist, you will begin to doubt a little. And slowly, you will have more doubt.
  • The doubt will finally become skepticism of whether the examination result is wrong. Is it possible that the examination is not comprehensive enough.
  • Or is it because the doctor is not professional enough? Why am I still uncomfortable? Those kinds of doubts make you want to go to the hospital.
  • And go through a “thorough” examination again. Other patients even choose to Google for an answer. After Googling, I suspect that you man have scared yourself to death.
  • Here, I have to make a serious joke: Google, Google, cancer starts; seeing a doctor on Google, the grave has been fixed.

Seeing this, you may be embarrassed and don’t know how to react. You may feel very sad, or even funny, but you are helpless.

Hypochondriasis (2)

  • The cause of hypochondriasis is lack of correct understanding of anxiety disorder. The patients do not know what is wrong with their body and mind.
  • When the symptoms come, so they start to think wildly. For palpitations, their first reaction is heart disease.
  • For dizziness and headache, they regard it as premonitory signs of cerebral infarction; for stomachache, stomach bloating. And poor breathing, they suspect whether they have cancer.
  • In fact, after calming down and thinking about it, you will understand that apart from anxiety. What kind of “major disease” can make you feel dizzy, have headache and stomach pain?
  • What will lead to palpitations and shortness of breath at the same time? Even if there is a “major disease”, will it make your nerves throb up and down your body?
  • Will it make your scalp and limbs go numb? Will it make your vision blurred and back sore? Will it lead to short of breath, constipation and diarrhea?

Apart from the nerves all over the body, what else can do those?

Beliefs of people

  • Some people have said that they can stop being afraid of the anxiety symptoms. But they are not sure if their symptoms are caused by anxiety.
  • So they still can’t overcome the fear itself. That is true. As it is unknown, the pathology of anxiety disorder is like the Pandora’s Box.
  • Which is mysterious and scary. But in fact, it is just a prank box. All you need to do is open the box and only to find that there is nothing scary in it.
  • When you have formed enough awareness and understanding of anxiety disorder. You can at least distinguish whether more than 90% of the symptoms are caused by anxiety disorder.

Then the hypochondriasis will disappear, and you will be able to truly overcome the fearitself. It is the most important step in recovery


The contents in previous chapters are to tell you the

importance of understanding anxiety disorder.

To fully understand it, you have to understand its symptoms. In the following chapters, I will explain the symptoms of anxiety disorder in detail.

As you learn more about anxiety disorder and deepen your subconscious. Your fear will be farther away from you and recovery will be closer to you.

Which is:

  1. Know the symptoms
  2. Get rid of hypochondriasis
  3. Overcome fear itself
  4. Get rid of fear
  5. Repeated psychological recovery from fear
  6. Repair the nerves slowly
  7. Adrenaline returns to normal
  8. Wait complete recovery
  • Going through the above process is the only way to recover from anxiety disorder. Which is crucial for every patient who wants to recover.
  • The harmless nature of this process and symptoms requires you to read the book over and over again. And imprint it in your subconscious.
  • Only in this way can it be truly effective. Therefore, I will repeat this process as much as possible in the upcoming chapters, which cover various symptoms.
  • On the one hand, it is to deepen your subconscious understanding of anxiety disorder. On the other hand, it can prevent patients who only think about their symptoms from ignoring the past.

For your recovery, in order to make patients take as little effort as possible, I am willing to repeat this 10,000 times.

Orthostatic hypotension

  • Many patients with anxiety disorder may encounter such a situation: after squatting down or sitting in a low place for a long time.
  • They will feel dizzy and bloated with chest tightness and palpitation. What is worse, they suffer from severe dizziness that nearly blind them when getting up.
  • This is probably not caused by anemia or low blood sugar. There is a medical term-orthostatic hypotension.
  • For a healthy person, after sitting or squatting down at a low place for a long time with bent knees and arched body.
  • Their blood may be blocked, their chest tight and they may feel heavy in the brain. Those are all normal for a normal person.
  • But for patients with anxiety disorder, the feeling will be infinitely magnified. So it is more obvious for them.

Changing from a squatting position to a standing position may seem simple. But it requires the coordination of various body organs to successfully complete the task.

Involvement of Cardiovascular system

  • The heart, nerves and blood vessels etc need to be involved. As bent waist and legs will lead to unsmooth blood.
  • If one stands up suddenly, partial ischemia and temporary malfunction of the working system will be caused for normal people.
  • For patients with anxiety disorder, abnormality of the nervous system. Makes it difficult for your body to adjust quickly.
  • So they will feel blinded and feel heavy in the brain. This feeling is only slightly stronger than normal people.
  • Originally small problem is once again amplified by your sensitive sensory nerves. And the feeling of terror appears.
  • This is not a big problem, and it has nothing to do with “major disease” that you may have. It may even have nothing to do with the so-called frailty.

Understanding this is the first condition for you to get rid of fear.

Foreign body sensation in the throat

  • Many patients often feel that there is something in the throat. So they keep swallowing and trying to swallow “it”.
  • Some even say that they really want to put their hands in and feel what it is. Due to constant attention, this feeling becomes stronger.
  • Making you feel that there must be something growing in your throat. Slowly, this “thing” is imagined as a tumor or even a malignant one.
  • This kind of imagination makes you crazy and afraid, and in the process of your fear. The nerves become more sensitive and the adrenaline continues to be excessively secreted.

The sensitive nerves amplify this feeling again, making you assured that it exists and the vicious circle starts again.

Magnification of these symptoms

  • This is not the end. Due to anxiety disorder, your sensitive nerves will magnify these symptoms. By ten times and a hundred times, making you suspect that you have a major disease again.
  • What you don’t know is that it is just another prank by your “broken” nerves. If you have already done relevant examinations and your stomach has no problems.
  • Or there are just small problems such as anti-inflammatory or polyps. Then please trust your doctor, don’t doubt whether the examination is careful enough.
  • Let alone doubt whether the doctor has made a mistake. As gastric neurosis is a symptom that should appear in patients with autonomic disorder.
  • It is harmless to you. It will also get milder as you get over the fear itself, until it disappears completely.
  • In addition, there are billions of common small problems. Such as gastritis and polyps in the world.
  • And the probability of “cancer” is not higher than that of major “car accidents”. There is really no need for groundless worry.
  • By the way, just a reminder, if you haven’t had a back examination and you can’t help but want to do it. The barium meal examination is a good choice for you.
  • So by just drinking a glass of “milk”, the examination will be over. Compared with the much more painful gastroscope.

It is simple, convenient and economical. There is no pain, the taste is not bad. And it can rule out most stomach diseases, why not have a try?

Heart discomfort (2)

  • Many patients have told me that each time they go to the hospital for examination. They are told by the doctor that their heart is fine.
  • But they still can’t believe it as they feel so uncomfortable. They do not think it is just caused by anxiety.
  • Thus they can’t overcome the fear itself. What should they do? Those patients feel that their heartbeat is so heavy that the whole body “vibrates”.
  • And even feel that the heartbeat is near the throat. It is not unusual that some even feel that the heart is about to explode.
  • It becomes more and more serious as the patients become more and more fearful. Another part of the patients are worried about tachycardia “out of no reason”.
  • They subconsciously and mistakenly believe that a fast heartbeat means a heart disease. Some patients go to the hospital for examination.
  • Also told by the doctor that the problem is not serious. But the medical terms such as “tachycardia”, “arrhythmia” and “st wave change”.
  • Displayed on the examination list make them fall into deep fear again. Indeed, for ordinary people, the first reaction of medical terms such as “tachycardia” “arrhythmia” and “st wave change” is “heart disease”.

At this time, worry is inevitable, and for patients with anxiety disorder, it is a disaster.
