The Truth About Living With Anxiety, Depression, and Panic Attacks

The Truth About Living With Anxiety, Depression, and Panic Attacks

Can hypnosis get rid of anxiety? The truth about living with anxiety, depression, and panic attacks is one of extremes. That is to say these conditions can be mild, moderate, or severe. It’s safe to say that most people have everyday tensions or anxiety ranging from mild to moderate. The truth about living with anxiety, depression, and panic attacks is that the first two can overlap each other. This overlapping makes it difficult to diagnose either problem. It is estimated 45% of patients with anxiety are misdiagnosed and do not receive the right treatment. Truth be told, anxiety lies at the core of phobic issues. The main difference between severe anxiety and a phobia is that the phobias occur only in certain situations.

Phobias, like anxiety and depression, can be mild or extreme. All three conditions in their severe form can fiercely incapacitate a person. For example, these disabilities can lead to people confining themselves in their homes…

  • for fear of what may happen (anxiety)
  • avoiding the phobia (panic attacks)
  • or isolating behavior (depression)

It stands to reason that if you’re to receive proper care, the right condition must be identified. If you suffer from any of these ailments you are encouraged to seek medical attention to be properly diagnosed.


As mentioned, the symptoms of three maladies overlap. The overlapping symptoms can lead to being misdiagnosed or even cause the sufferer to receive improper treatment for his or her condition. Making matters worse is the need to rule out the possibility that the individualized signs of any of these types of problems result from a medical condition.

The primary care doctor is given the job of ruling out any of a number of conditions which, as a by-product, cause anxiety or depression. The truth about living with anxiety, depression, and panic attacks is that the list of medical conditions affecting the three can be extensive. High blood pressure, irregular heartbeat, low blood sugar, and peptic ulcer disease all influence anxiety.

Anxiety has a way of weaving itself into most psychiatric conditions. Depression and the mania state of a bi-polar illness is rarely seen without anxiety. Once medical and psychiatric causes for anxiety are ruled out, focus and proper care on the issue can begin. Psychotropic medication, primarily affecting the mind or “psyche”, though helpful, may not be the course of action.

Can Hypnosis Get Rid of Anxiety?

Thought it cannot be used in place of licensed medical care, hypnosis can be a very useful supplemental modality that works with various forms of anxiety and its related states, namely, depression and panic attacks that result from phobia. Other conditions helps by hypnosis include post-traumatic stress, obsessive compulsive, and personality adjustment issues. All have, as a core issue, anxiety. Only anxiety, depression, and panic attacks are addressed here.

Hypnosis, recognized by both the American Medical and the American Psychological Associations as an accepted complimentary care, is ideally suited for the use with anxiety, depression, and panic attacks. The reasons are simple. It works, it’s cost effective, and the results can be long lasting.

Why hypnosis is so ideally suited here is not exactly known, just as it is not completely understood how hypnosis itself works. What we do know and understand is hypnosis allows the client to achieve a relaxed and focused state known as the hypnotic trance. While the person uses hypnosis, he or she is in complete control rather than asleep. The client can stop the session at any point.

The hypnotherapist is uniquely trained in the use of imagery in affecting the perceptions of anxiety and its related states. By accessing the subconscious mind, where fears, anxiety, and limiting beliefs reside, the client addresses the issue at its core.
