When the brain is inflicted with
anxiety, returning to a normal state of mind seems impossible.
Fortunately, Saito Therapy has been proven to cure from Anxiety Disorder
even if the disease was long-standing. The following examination
explains how Saito Therapy is able to bring healthy mind to those who
are afflicted with anxiety disorders.
Principle Requirements of Saito Therapy:
- Acknowledge that the Anxiety Disorder is the result of the brain
Recent scientific studies point to an imbalance in the levels of
Serotonin (one of the major neurotransmitters of brain function) as a
cause for the chronic anxiety. Scientists have speculated that a
particular gene, responsible for maintaining metabolic balance, may have
mutated to cause the chemical imbalance. It is not known whether the
mutation is the result of genetics or environment.
- Realize that you cannot overcome this illness with will power and
Once you fall prey to Anxiety Disorder, no amount of trying to
escape through either “will power” or intellectual strategies can
succeed. Since anxiety problems are actually located in the brain and so
is the power of the personal will, it is clear that the will is also
diminished when the person is suffering from anxiety. No amount of
effort will get you out of the mental black hole of fear. If you are
sincere in your desire to escape from this constant, underlying fear,
you must abandon the idea that you have any personal power to overcome
- Realize that patience cannot overcome the mental pain of anxiety.
Patience also will not free the person from anxiety, although
this is a very prevalent notion. The idea that if we just wait it out,
it will go away is very tempting in the face of chronic anxiety
feelings, but in fact, anxiety problems can last a lifetime. Patience is
not a virtue in this situation. Instead of freezing in an anxiety state
and practicing patience, you should put yourself away from all painful
and fearful situations.
- Understand that freedom from anxiety occurs in an instant - not
Many anxious people believe that their illness will get better
gradually, step by step. But that is not true. There is just one moment
in which the change occurs. In that moment we become completely freed
from anxiety, not partially freed. It happens in an instant. It is like
our brain switches from an brain filled with anxiety to pure clarity and
health. There is no middle ground. Perhaps, we have different brain
modes that can switch back and forth. To be cured means that the brain
always selects the option of health. While in the process of recovery,
the patient can actually switch from health to anxiety and then back
again - quite continuously. Whereas once cured, anxious feelings will
not be inappropriately blown out of proportion. Instead, the cured
person will occasionally have normal bouts of anxiety just because fear
is a biological facet of brain function. But generally speaking, the
mode of constant anxiety has been dissolved.
- Be Present
Those who suffer from Anxiety Disorder have the habit of worrying
about the future and forgetting about the here and now. To try to figure
things out for the unknown future is a predictable habit for anyone who
is suffering from anxiety, but it is a waste of time and
counterproductive to recuperating from the disease. To discuss your fear
with those closest to you is also a mistake. The more we talk about the
fear, the more ingrained it becomes. Instead simply take action and
move. Action is very important. Healthy people move all the time. We
pass through the fear while we are doing something.
