How to Refresh the Fatigued Mind by Dr. Ronnie Freedman

Feedback, Testimonials and Success Stories / Stopped Meds!!!
« Last post by Pete on April 29, 2013, 02:17:59 PM »
Meds were a big thing for me since I took them for 3 years. I always felt light headed and nauseous on from the Lexapro but was afraid to stop. Don't know why cause it never helped me anyway. I learned how to use my mind to do the same thing the meds were supposed to do but never did. I did the foods every day that didn't let the anxiety in. The dp stopped because I did the steps and never went back to the bad habits.

I can honestly say I found myself. I used to be the biggest victim to anxiety. Now I'm working in the job I always wanted and feel calm while I do it. This is major for me. I always had a fear of being sick but not anymore. I don't do the scary talk to myself. I learned the trick of keeping my head above it all. I don't practice anymore because it's just a part of me. Don't have to think about it so much. Thanks Dr. F. for helping me get where I am now.
Sleep Difficulties / Dp anxiety and no sleep at all

Thanks for putting up this forum especially for people with sleep problem. I will get your package and it will probably be Fri. 

Could you tell me if it's normal to feel like you can never sleep? I'm tired and it's making my stomach and head feel sick all day. Is it making dp worse. This worries me.

Will I ever sleep again? I'm scared it won't come back to the way it was.

If you are going to do the program give yourself the best chance. What I mean is I was positive I did something that ruined me for life. I wasn't sure if it was partying as a teenager or experimenting in college with minor drugs. Nothing really mattered until the dp made me sure I had broken something in my head. Not even Dr. Freedman could convince me when I went to her office. It took her a lot of time and convincing before I stopped fighting this thing and let myself believe her even a little. She told me about resistance and when I did let it go I began to recover. I felt like my mind opened up and was crystal clear all over again when I did. To me it was a miracle but looking back I see it was because I followed the program and gave up thinking I was sick.

I hope someone reads this and gets unstuck too. I have a life and it wasn't so hard after I learned the real story about dp. Don't believe you are sick. Get off that way of thinking and you'll do fine with the program. Talk it out with Dr. Freedman and believe what she tells you. She knows. Believe me.  -Kelly

Hi Everyone,

Great opportunity to let you all know about my progress. I've finished up the package and have no signs of dp or dr anymore. I do speak to Dr. Freedman once a week and it really helps keep me on track. If you have any doubts about recovery, DON'T! This is the real deal and it worked for me faster than I thought it would. It's great to feel clear again.

Dear Katie,

If you are seeking a permanent recovery it is essential to use the program package in its entirety. One may experience anxiety and never experience symptoms of depersonalization but if you experience feelings of depersonalization they always have a root in anxiety. Therefore it is important to address the anxiety symptoms first and proceed on to the depersonalization recovery treatment. This is why the package is designed in this very specific and precise way. It will enable you to achieve permanent recovery without the fear of returning symptoms.

If you do feel the need for phone, Skype or in-office sessions with me, to tie up loose ends, it is best to follow through with consecutive sessions, even if short-term. This does not require a long or drawn out process but random sessions often are ineffective, which is why we recommend a two to three month course of weekly sessions for best results. We find that those who follow this pattern achieve a faster and permanent recovery rather than a short spurt of relief.

Best wishes,

Anxiety Natural Recovery / How to begin getting better?
« Last post by Katie on April 25, 2013, 02:46:03 PM »
My question is this. Do you think if I have dp and anxiety it would be okay to do the dp program only. It's not a matter of money because I think the package is priced okay for me. I do have bad anxiety and it comes and goes but really want to get to the dp part. Also, would it help to get a session every couple of months to help me stay on track? I want more than anything to get over this all the way. I'm not sure which way to go. I would love to hear some feedback from those who are better.

I know this is an awesome forum. Reading your posts has helped me more than you can know.

Anxiety Natural Recovery / Re: Breathing obsession

Dear Ivans,

You brought up a very interesting topic since so many experience the identical reaction when dealing with the anxiety condition. This is not unusual at all and once you understand what it is, you will eventually lose your fear of it and it will dissolve.

When one is stressed, their muscles contract. This is the law of resistance and contraction. When this occurs it feels as if the chest does not expand correctly and one even feels as if they are gasping for a full breath. Tension and fear add to this sensation unless one learns how to loosen by letting go of the thoughts that are keeping muscles contracted.

Your lungs are fine, as is your heart. These sensations begin with the habit or behavior of fearful thinking. You need to learn how to interrupt the fearful thoughts and thereby ending the body's response to your worried way of perceiving life. Remember, your body is only responding to your sense of fear. Your resistance to letting go is keeping you trapped.

I will be glad to schedule a session for you and find the time to discuss this in detail. For the time being, know you are not ill, your chest and lungs are fine and you just need to learn how to trade in fearful thinking for a much more relaxed manner of thinking and living.

Best wishes,

Dr. Ronnie Freedman

Anxiety Natural Recovery / Breathing obsession
« Last post by ivans on April 16, 2013, 01:05:47 PM »
I am constantly aware of my breathing. I barely can to distract my mind even for minute. It is like I am afraid that without thinking about my breathing I will stop breathing. When I start being aware of breathing somehow I start feeling I am smothering and cannot breath. I am afraid that I will continue to be aware of my breathing and nothing can help me and will be like a prisoner of my own mind. I became to doubt if my lungs are all right or my heart. My doctor told me that my heart is ok and I have vesicular breathing, without bronchoconstiction. Is there someone here who had or has the same problem.
P.S. I feel that something is choking my throat, sometimes very tightly. It is difficult to sleep well because I am afraid of my breathing. Dear doctor Freedman, dear friend, please give me some suggestions. Should I have something more than Anxiety Busters program? Is it enough? Or may be counselling sessions would be better?

Thank you, this is so helpful. I will remember this for my next appointment. I even had a nurse tell me she has white coat syndrome and that surprised me. I need to get back to my tape course and listen to all again. Thank you for all you do for us and all your help. God Bless!  8) :)
