How can an anxiety
disorder be cured by Saito therapy?
|Saito therapy asks you to shut down the circuit
that has gone wrong in your brain. By shutting down the malfunctioning
circuit, we can create a new one in a different place in our brain. The
new circuit becomes stronger and stronger as we practice Saito Therapy
and it will become strong enough to prevent the intervention of the
pre-existing corrupted one, which is not functioning properly. In this
process we utilise the biological plasticity of the brain.

Those who do not have an anxiety
disorder do not understand Saito Therapy and when they post on our
bulletin board, they write from a different point of view. They are not
patients that Saito Therapy can cure.
you have to do from now on?
- Do not gather information about
- Stop practising any existing
therapy and do not seek out alternative treatments.
- Do not ask yourself or others
how to cure the anxiety disorder.
- Do not ask for help when you
are suffering from anxiety attacks.
- After you have suffered from
fear or anxiety, you should not try to remember that anxiety nor should
you attempt to prepare any extra precautions to avoid feeling that fear
when you reach the next stage.
- When you are suffering from
very strong anxiety and you are feeling depressed, you should go to your
home straight after finishing work or school and
go to bed early at night. You should realise that thinking for a long
time about the ideas that are causing the anxiety is just a waste of
time in your life.
- You should go to your place of
work or study the next day without any preparation and without
formulating plans to ward off the anxiety.
of curing of anxiety disorder
believes that anxiety disorder is caused by biological factors, which
are strongly tied to genetic predisposition. That is why traditional
psychotherapy fails to cure anxiety disorder. It has already been
noticed that psychoanalysis only makes these disorders worse. Saito
Therapy thinks that anxiety or intrusive thoughts are signals produced
in the brain when it is not functioning properly.
We are not sure whether the problem lies in the software or the
of the brain, but our brains are biological super- computers and
two components are strongly connected to each other. Saito Therapy
that our brain circuit is not operating normally in anxiety
we close this malfunctioning circuit, our mind will create a new
on a different part of the brain and take over the role of the
one. In order to create a new circuit, it is vitally important to
down the old one. All the anxiety patients trying to repair the
circuit by using the old one are attempting the impossible.
But if we succeed in closing down the
circuit, our brain starts to create a new one because we have biological
plasticity. This new circuit will become strong enough to prevent the
old circuit interfering, if you follow the instructions of Saito
Therapy. If you follow the guidance of Saito Therapy we can promise that
you will soon have a very comfortable and healthy life.
Therapy supplemental rules
- Do not take medicine as a rule,
although we do not deny all the possibilities offered by medicines.
Anxiety and fear can be extraordinarily strong for patients and
sometimes we allow them to take medicines to weaken the fear. It may be
difficult to practice Saito therapy when you are under strong stress,
but we prohibit relying on medicine too much.
- Saito Therapy rejects all
traditional therapies including psychoanalysis, cognitive behavioural
therapy, hypnotism and so on.
- You are not allowed to read
books or information that deals with anxiety disorder, including this
site. You should live on your own without help from Saito Therapy,
except when you are very confused.
- You should not go to the
doctor. You can be cured very well without going to the doctor. But we
do not tell border-liners and other people who have illnesses similar to
anxiety disorder not to consult a doctor because we are not sure that
Saito Therapy is effective for those illnesses which only resemble anxiety disorder.
- Releasing yourself from anxiety
disorder is very lonely process. You have to fight to build the path
that will lead you to outside of the world of anxiety. You can not
expect to get well by talking with others who have the same illness. You
have to face your own anxiety by yourself.
of those who are already cured
of those who are cured is very important. They are reborn in their
lives and the power of this rare experience should be delivered to those
who are not cured. People with anxiety need
to find the exit from this mental abyss and only those who are cured can
point out the direction. A cured person must the give appropriate
advice and the benefit of their experience to those who need help.
difficulties when you practice Saito Therapy
- Saito Therapy itself becomes
the focus of your excessive thoughts and urges. You get stuck in Saito
Therapy. This is the greatest obstacle to practising Saito Therapy.
In order to prevent this situation, you should not read Saito
detail. If you get a few suggestions by reading this site, you
this page and live on your own. The process of curing an anxiety
is not like solving a difficult mathematical question. The
in MU or nothingness.
- You are not sure whether you
have delusions or healthy feelings. It is very hard to draw a line
between those two feelings. The more you fight against anxiety, the more
confused you become. If you think you are in this mental black hole,
you better go straight to bed. The best thing for you to do is to switch
off your brain's super-computer.
- It is hard to practice Saito
Therapy when you are under very severe stress because
you feel overwhelmed with your excessive worries and doubts.
It is better for you to put yourself out of the stressful
environment and give yourself a calm and easy atmosphere. Then you might
find it a lot easier to practice Saito Therapy.
feel Saito Therapy is easy
- Ironically Saito Therapy is
very easy to practice when you are at the edge of the struggle with
anxiety, when you have lost the will to fight and can not see any help
- It is not so difficult to
practice Saito Therapy when you stay calm in your home or in the morning
before your anxiety starts to grow.
- When you take tranquilizers,
you can control your worries and doubts and it
feels easy to practice Saito Therapy. But Saito Therapy is not
effective when you are under the strong influence of tranquilizers and
you should consider such medication as supplemental
difference between shyness and social phobia
seems to be a popular misconception about shyness and social phobia.
Shyness is person's tendency and nature whereas social phobia is a
medical brain disorder and those who suffer from it have problems with
information processing in their brains.
Social phobia patients have not
only excessive shyness and avoidance tendencies but they also have
confusion in their minds and problems with information processing. They
are stuck on worries and doubts. We should not talk about shyness and
social phobia in the same breath.
Therapy's opinion of other therapies
This therapy was established by Dr
Morita back in the 1920s based on the concept of Zen meditation, Zen
practice and his own experience. Since Morita therapy explains the
anxiety disorder to us plainly and clearly, it has become famous in
But in spite of its popularity, it is very hard to find anyone who
has been cured by this therapy. Saito got hospitalised twice and spend 4
months in the Morita therapy hospital but the results were very
disappointing. Saito thinks that it is a greatly flawed method of
This therapy is very common in the
world of anxiety disorders but Saito Therapy doubts its use from it's
foundation. All the anxiety patients in the world already try the very
same procedures that CBT recommends to us. But through my experience,
the more you make an effort to practice what CBT recommends to overcome
your fear, the worse your condition gets. CBT requires us to try and
analyse the fear and doubts, think about where they came from and how
unreasonable they are.

and perhaps has a problem with information processing. A problem

Nor we can overcome the fear by exposing our selves to it. If you
yourself too much towards the irrational fear, it could have
consequences for you, in which your identity splits into halves

This is the most important step towards winning the battle against
Everybody knows that this therapy is
not effective for anxiety disorders. This therapy has been performed for
hundreds of years and there is no clear evidence that it is effective.
If this therapy was useful for treating anxiety disorders, big
institutions would already have departments specialised in hypnotism.
Zen is a Japanese Buddhism religion
and its meditation attracted a lot of anxious people who sought help
from it in the past. But Zen is a religion and its priority is to save
people’s souls. It is not designed to save people from anxious thought,
which was perhaps caused by an abnormal brain serotonin imbalance.
Religion is religion. Its purpose is
to save a person's soul and spirit. You can not expect to cure an
anxiety disorder by joining a religion.
All anxious people the world over
have been struggling against their anxiety with their own home-made
therapy. But there will be no hope of succeeding with such methods. It is like a schizophrenic patient who
fights against his delusion in an attempt overcome them. The relief of
anxiety only comes when you stop all your efforts to make your own
improvement in anxiety disorder
My depression disappeared right after
I started Saito Therapy. Disappearance of depression is the first sign
of recovery among all the symptoms associated with anxiety disorders.
You feel that it's very easy to live your life when there is no
After you start Saito Therapy, your
mood swings will become less severe or simply disappear. Being cured
means that you have a plain and stable mood in your daily life. This is
the most important step towards leaving behind the world of anxiety.
- No mood swings, or less mood
Saito Therapy instructs you not to
prepare anything against anticipated fear. It asks you to drop the
weapons and protective measures that you've built against all your fears
and doubts. Naturally it becomes less and less usual for you to
anticipate fear in your daily life.
When we are immersed in anxiety, we
cannot control our thinking. Our thinking becomes excessive and
unstoppable. We try to control our thoughts but this effort makes it
worse. In such circumstances the blood is spent in our prefrontal
cortex, wasted trying to put our thinking under control. When we are hit
by the most severe type of depression we feel very tired in the
evening., but Saito Therapy stops this brain stampede and reduces the
excessive and wasted metabolism of blood in our brain. Naturally we do
not feel tiredness, except of a normal physical nature in the evening.
- Less anticipation of fear
When we are affected by an anxiety
disorder we tend to make a lot of mistakes in our work because our mind
is stuck, dwelling on irrational urges, fear and doubt. But when you are
released from this troubled state of mind, you start to feel free in
your thinking and that helps contribute to making less mistakes in your
job. You can think of others, your parents and your friends rather than
yourself, so you can more easily maintain good relationships with
others. You feel that you have returned the energy back into your life
and you will find a lot of things to do.
- Less mistakes in your work
It is very hard to get rid of all the
symptoms in a short period of time, but most of the symptoms fade away
as you spend days following the instructions of Saito Therapy. I have
been practising Saito Therapy for ten years and most of the symptoms that made my life so miserable are gone now.
Some of them still come back to me when I am hit by occasional
flashbacks, but it disturbs me for only a short time and the symptoms
are no longer a significant issue.
- No symptoms, or less symptoms
How long does it
take for recovery?
|You will see the
changes in your feelings over night when your start Saito Therapy but it
will take years for an overall and complete cure. You will feel
unstable and will suffer from anxiety when you start Saito Therapy
because the anxious part of your brain is still hard at work and
producing lots of bugs. But as you practice Saito Therapy for an
increasing length of time, your healthy thought processes take over,
becoming more and more normal and stable. The new circuits you have
built will become strong and resistant against the intervention of the old circuit. I am almost cured but
it took ten years. This shows that it will take a long time to create a
new circuit in your brain and make it strong and powerful.
of curing the disorder
control-centre is ill
What makes the treatment of anxiety
disorder so difficult is the fact that your control-centre is ill. For
example, if your hand gets injured, you understand what action you
should take to heal the injury, you put a bandage on it and do not use
the injured part of your hand for a couple of days or a week. Then you
find that your hand has recovered.
But when it comes to your anxiety, it is a quite different matter
to deal with. It is very questionable whether your unhealthy
anxiety-wracked part of your brain can recognise that it is working
improperly or generating false signals. Even though your brain as a
whole understands that it is ill, you can not find the proper way to get out of this illness. But the brain itself
feel pains all the time and it will try to cure itself, you do not
understand whether you are heading in the right or the wrong direction.
You get confused and you feel that you are trapped in a black-hole of
way to cure the anxiety disorder
calmness, the power of natural healing that will cure your wounded
mind. You can not actively seek to diminish the intrusive thoughts
doubts by applying effort. We have to realise that we are
to solve this problem by taking direct action. The only thing we
in Saito Therapy is to let our natural healing power start to
often and quickly and effectively.
