Charles Linden, author of the Linden Method, is a man who knows what he’s talking about. For the benefit of anyone who is unfamiliar with his name, and/or his reputation, Charles is a man who has dedicated his life to helping others to learn how to deal with anxiety and panic attack disorder.
Charles Himself Was a Sufferer
One of the reasons that Charles Linden is so successful in this particular field is that he himself was a sufferer; but he discovered how to cure himself, and now his is free from what for many, can otherwise prove be a totally debilitating condition.
Symptoms of Anxiety Disorder
We all feel the effects of anxiety at some point in our lives. This often manifests itself as:
- A sense of worry
- The feeling of what we commonly describe as “butterflies”
- A tightening of the stomach muscles
- Feelings of nausea
- Shortness of breath
- Accelerated heartbeat
Who Suffers from Anxiety Disorder?
Small children may feel anxiety which expresses itself in one or more of the above mentioned ways when about to attend a new school; young people when they are waiting for their exam results; anyone going for their first job interview – any situation whereby the outcome is unpredictable can lead to a sense of anxiety.
Anxiety Attack Explained
Charles Linden explains that anxiety and panic attacks are not an illness. Rather, they are a condition; and he is living proof of the fact that it is a condition that can be managed and self-cured, as explained in full detail in his book and program, The Linden Method.
Feelings of anxiety are generated by the Amygdala, a tiny organ within all of our brains. When we find ourselves in an uncertain situation, it is the Amygdala that sends out chemical messages that result in the familiar physical feelings of anxiety. This is quite normal.
But in many people their Amygdalas get reprogrammed and send out their chemical messages in relatively normal situations. This becomes the default position and it is what is responsible for anxiety attacks which to outsiders, are totally unwarranted.
When Anxiety Disorder Leads to Panic Attacks
Charles Linden himself suffered from this disorder, which, when taken to a higher stress level resulted in panic attacks. These panic attacks make people’s bodies physically react in totally inappropriate ways; for example shortness of breath, and/or symptoms that closely resemble that of having a heart attack.
The Linden Method
The Linden Method has been put together by Charles from his own actual experiences, how he learned to manage these attacks, and eventually overcome their effects. He is now anxiety attack free and is passing on his wealth of knowledge on the subject to the world at large.
Charles Linden has become a recognized authority on the subject of anxiety disorder. He appears on TV chat shows, speaks at functions, and has written several well acclaimed books on the subject, the latest of which is entitled The Linden Method. If you, yourself are a sufferer, this book comes as highly recommended reading.
