Dear Elena,

This can be quite disturbing for anyone who has experienced the constant ringing, buzzing, roaring and hissing noises in the ear. When severe it may trigger and enhance anxiety symptoms to the point of distraction. I have spoken to a large number of individuals who suffer greatly with this interference and am well aware of the strong and intrusive effect it has presented in their lives.

Studies have proved that severe anxiety can actually trigger as well as exacerbate this condition. Blood pressure rises along with anxiety reactions and the artery in the neck pulsates in a stronger more advanced rate, producing a swooshing sound as the blood passes through this vein. This enhanced pulse coincides with the increased heart rate and is experienced as a constant hum or ringing throughout the head and ear. Naturally, the stronger the heartbeat, the more noticeable the symptom. Maintaining a calm and relaxed mind and body is key to taming this intrusive symptom and is achieved by learning to change behaviors and lifestyle. The results can be quite dramatic as the symptom abates and life returns to normal once again.

There are actually quite a few completely natural, therapeutic steps one may use to turn off the constant sounds that interfere with one's life and I have found these steps work quite quickly and serve to restore peace and quiet to one's life.

Please call my office and I'll fill you in as to the exact steps used in this process. Also, try not to worry. There is a way to overcome this invasive symptom.

Best wishes,

Anxiety Natural Recovery / Earworms or Tinnitus?
« Last post by Elena on June 25, 2014, 10:57:21 AM »
Hi Dr. Freedman,

I read your answer to the person who asked about Earworms and I see what you mean but I always thought that ringing and ear sounds were also earworms. I guess I was wrong. They said itwas more a stuck song in the head (and I get that alot too) but what about the ear ringing they call tinnitus? Do you know about this too? I've been under enormous tension at work and have trouble being in a quiet place and most of all trying to fall asleep at night. It's frightening how my head feels. This sound is so distracting and it's all I think about all the time. I'm afraid its become a phobia of sorts with me or an OCD symptom like your other poster wrote. There are times I could just scream it's so bad. I'm also afraid I will lose my job because I don't sleep and am tired all day. It's getting me down in so many ways. Please can you tell me if you can speak to me or help me out with this?

Dear Ivans,

This is a very interesting question and the answer will bring relief from this intrusive symptom.

It is basically your own fear that fuels the continuation of this symptom. Any symptom one abhors, fears and worries about is enhanced by his or her efforts to push it aside.

When the mind grows weary due to continuous fearful worry every symptom intensifies, begging for one's attention. The moment one makes the decision to stop adding second fear ("what if" thinking) to the symptom, it slowly but surely dissipates, until completely dissolved.

Here are a few hints and tips that might help for now:

- Practice becoming aware of your breath for a few minutes at intervals during the day, especially when you find yourself irritated by the repetitive song. When the song intrudes, gently but firmly sweep it out of your consciousness.

- Remind yourself that this is the product of a fatigued mind (fatigued by your strong habit of worry) and when you learn to interrupt this fearful behavior, the "stuck" song will cease to intrude.

- Learn to use specific foods as described in our Anxiety Recovery Program to calm the mind and body and avoid foods such as caffeine, excessive sugar and alcohol to avoid reactivity.

Best wishes,

Anxiety Natural Recovery / Earworms
« Last post by ivans on June 12, 2014, 03:21:52 PM »
Dr Freedman, do so called 'earworms' part of anxiety (most specifically OCD) disorder or is it something else? I am a little stressed these days and in my mind all the time I 'hear' a song which can be 'replaced' by another which I hear. Is there a way out of this cycle? What is the neurophysiological or whatever explanation for this phenomenon? Thank you in advance.
Anxiety Natural Recovery / Cyberstalking: A Federal Crime
« Last post by Administrator on May 27, 2014, 02:08:25 PM »
Cyberstalking is the use of the Internet or other electronic means to stalk or harass an individual, a group, or an organization. It may include false accusations, defamation, slander and libel.This act is a Federal Crime punishable by stiff fines and imprisonment.

Stalkers may come in different shapes and sizes but they all share characteristics which allow them to stand out within a personal or professional relationship, if one is cognizant of these traits. It helps to be aware of these personality glitches from the beginning, to avoid falling into the predator’s clutches and blocking him/her from attempting misanthropic actions. It’s imperative to remember, you are dealing with a psychopath who is not interested in anything except owning you or ruining you, whichever the case may be. This is a narcissistic loner who breeds off of the attempted ruination of others.

Profile of the Stalker

- The stalker begins slowly, by injecting familiarity in a relationship. Their sole goal is to become a best friend and cohort, showing keen interest in your location, organizations, friends, colleagues, family and any other facets of your life. They may stalk through phone calls, emails, connecting to those who know you or even a collection of photos, documents, background information, social networks and anything connected to your current social life and job. They quickly drop formal titles you may have accrued over the years, feeling entitled to call you by your first name.

- They habitually trash their own former friends, former relationships, existing professional relationships and even their family members in unimaginable ways, always presenting themselves as the victim.

- Narcissism is a strong part of their disturbing behavior, as they strongly believe no one is up to dealing with their antics. They feel they live in a world where others “don’t play by the rules.”

- They eventually become hostile and volatile when their “mark” becomes aware of their invasive behavior. This is when the mask of benevolence is dropped and their true nature rears its ugly head:

1- They begin by trying to make amends, which is impossible as the situation has already played itself out.

2- They become vindictive and begin to stalk and harass their victim.

3- They dance around issues, hiding behind assumed names and aliases. Fortunately, their efforts fall flat when others instantly see through their thin veil of drama. The third party warns the victim of the stalkers careless attempts at destruction. Their narcissism duped them into believing they could pull this off when in reality their inflated ego was once again blurred by rage.

Internet Violations

There are many reasons, in the perpetrator’s mind, to use the internet as a means to stalk, slander and harass their victim. It is a very seductive venue until they are eventually unmasked. This always does occur, mostly sooner than later, with surprisingly high penalties and unforeseen consequences. Naturally, they are always shocked and indignant, when found out, once again claiming victimization.

- When first attempting the act of cyberstalking, the stalker believes in his heart of hearts that it’s the perfect place to remain anonymous, although there are new electronics and distinct formulas including internet rules and regulations which carry strong penalties once their true identity is unmasked, and it always is since you can run but you can’t hide in this day and age.

- Third party recipients of the stalkers weak attempts to discredit their victims are almost always willing and able to identify the stalker and produce solid evidence, both written and documented. They will also stand witness as a third party recipient of the stalkers intrusive actions.

Unmasking the Stalker: Self Protection

If you ever find yourself in this position remember, awareness will save you from having to endure the stalker’s trap before it occurs. This is not a sad person, not a lonely person or an unfortunate individual. This is a psychopath who is able to twist situations, obliterate relationships, lie, steal and cheat others. Their only concern in life is “self” and nothing more. This is narcissism at its finest. This is someone with the strong intent to overtake you, ruin you and discredit everything you consider important in your life. They are to be avoided at all costs. Your best bet is the following action:

- Contact your local police, FBI, and any other agencies that deal with disturbed individuals who have threatened you, slandered you (either directly or through a third party), committed libelous acts, attempted theft or falsified documents. Keep records, website posts, and all documentation through internet and third party witnesses (organizations, individuals and emails) as this is essential. Remember, this is a federal offense.

- Contact an attorney, agencies, website administrators and share your story. You are the victim, regardless of what the other person is spewing.

- Do not allow this person living space in your consciousness. Remember, you are the antithesis of this personality and every moment you think of them, you are allowing them to live in the confines of your mind, rent free. Force them out by filling your mind with positivity and positive individuals, who share like interests and nourish your soul.

- Move forward, don’t look back, but learn from this experience. This is a lesson in living and working, teaching you to be aware of boundaries and why they must be protected. This is your responsibility, to make certain no one crosses those lines again, because your sense of intuition is probably correct when you begin to doubt the veracity of the individual from the first time you speak to them.

- Never blame yourself. Unfortunately, these circumstances do occur when one is off guard and vulnerable. Extending oneself through kindness and sharing is not always rewarded when the intent of the recipient is purely malevolent and narcissistic. Unfortunately, these circumstances occur when one is off guard and vulnerable.

- We all make mistakes, but this experience will enable you to take a step back and go with your intuition. Listen to those uncomfortable sensations when first dealing with someone in this category. Back off before you are forced to leave the relationship out of instinctive self protection. As the old saying goes, “When someone shows you who they are, believe them.”

Anxiety Natural Recovery / Venting Is Not Always the Healthy Choice

Venting is Not Always The Healthy Choice

by Ronnie Freedman Ph.D. on May 23, 2014

Although expressing one's feelings may be encouraged and often beneficial, the habit of venting one's dissatisfaction with life may often become all consuming and eventually a problem both physically and emotionally. It might even come to a point where problems are no longer resolved and health issues begin to manifest out of this behavior. This is not to imply that self expression is to be avoided, but when frequent venting becomes a constant, it might be time to investigate ways to shift this behavior into one that is more productive and less destructive to one's health.

Research findings now demonstrate that chronic venting and negative rumination, without problem resolution, present a higher risk of serious health issues. Outbursts and tirades are closely linked to high blood pressure, Coronary Artery Disease (CAD), strokes and cancer.

Stress hormones speed up the process of atherosclerosis, fatty plaque buildup in the arteries, and are also linked to the disruption of electrical impulses of the heart and may provoke serious heart rhythm disturbances.

Those who vent, without problem resolution, on a more frequent basis, are faced with twice the risk of CAD and almost three times the risk of heart attack, compared to subjects with the lower levels of venting.

While stress responses mobilize us for emergencies, they might cause harm if repeatedly activated. When they persist over time, they end up becoming potentially damaging to both coronary disease and heart attack. The aging process noticeably accelerates as the stressed body struggles to combat an increased load in stress hormones, particularly on the immune system.

It is clearly a better choice to turn down the heat and put a cap on chronic venting, as one might be seriously harming themselves rather than the individual or situation they are aggressively blowing up over.

There is a remedy for this type of unproductive behavior. It's all about replacing negativity with a new perspective. This is why it is very important to calmly define one's issues, work them out and move on. Too often individuals become "stuck" in complaining, rather than finding a resolution and going forward with their lives. If they have very little in their lives, negativity becomes something to chew on, providing them with a continuous repertoire of venting, bestowed upon whoever will listen.

Eventually, all this negativity turns off any relationship, leaving the individual shunned, frustrated and alone. It's never too late though, because behaviors can be changed if someone is willing, and a new perspective can always replace the habit of negativity.

I found Dr. Freedman, online, when I was struggling with anxiety issues. I would no longer leave my house because I was afraid of having a panic attack. My family physician prescribed an anti-depressant for me, but I am not really a pill taker. I really thought that there was no hope for me but Dr. Freedman proved me wrong. I did telephone counseling with her and she was able to give me some tips that helped me get some relief immediately. Just having someone listen, who really understood what I was feeling, was such a great help. I also purchased her Anxiety Program on CDs so I could take her with me in the car. I would not hesitate to refer others to her that are struggling with anxiety. In fact, both my mother and sister have spoken with Dr Freedman when they were having issues with panic attacks. I am now panic attack free. If I happen to feel anxious during times of stress, I am quickly able to calm myself using the skills I learned from the program. Thank you Dr. Freedman for helping regain control of my life!

Anxiety Natural Recovery / Re: Panic Attacks Lasting All Day! Help!
« Last post by DrFreedman on April 19, 2014, 04:51:27 PM »
Dear Pat and Max,

Thank you for your questions. There is actually a logical explanation for this longer lasting "all day" panic attack."

A panic attack can only be prolonged by your fear of it. The more fearful input, the longer the attack. It might even ebb for a while but the moment you begin fueling it with constant fearful thinking, the longer it is drawn out. This is why it is so very important to train an over reactive mind, and replace it with one that has learned to "under react."

Your diet and nutrition are also an integral part of recovery because they will arm you against the onslaught of panic as well. Check out the food plan part of our program and you will be guided into a way of eating that allows you to be less reactive, therefore healing much more rapidly.

Thanks again for the questions and best wishes,
