This information is based on 20 years practice and helping millions of anxious people
We have helped hundreds of thousands of people to understand and overcome their anxiety disorders... the information on this page is unique because no other organisation uses LAR recovery therapy and no other organisation or person has helped the quantity of people just like you to recover.
What we tell you will change your mind - Literally. You will see that we speak absolute science... simple science... and that all we say makes absolute sense.
Your breathing problems are not a symptom... they are a feature of your current emotional state.
More or less every anxious person we have helped since 1997 has some form of breathing problem.
How does it effect you?
Shortness of breath?
Tightness in chest?
Difficulty taking a deep breath?
Heightened attention to breath?
Feeling like you have to 'manually breathe'?
In truth, anxiety doesn't cause breathing problems...
Despite how it feels, you are breathing and doing so effectively... I know it doesn't feel that way but you are.
I had these issues for over 25 years and in some cases called ambulances, rushed to the doctor and panicked because I thought that if I didn't 'think about breathing', I would stop. Breathing was a constant focus and it drove me crazy.
The moment I opened my eyes, my attention automatically went to my breath. I must have been breathing normally whilst asleep... I lived through every night... all sufferers do.... but, as soon as I woke, it became conscious again... then I'd struggle to take a deep breath and my attention would be fully back on it again.
In addition, I suffered from contamination OCD, agoraphobia, panic disorder and health anxiety... to name a few.
I couldn't understand why anxiety breathing problems dominated my life.
But now I know.
They don't... the heightened attention to breathing and the constantly strange perception that I wasn't breathing effectively, were all features of hyper-vigilance and the core anxiety disorder... nothing more.
The obsessive attention anxiety sufferers pay to their breathing is activated when breathing changes during the initial anxiety but then becomes constant as the sufferer focuses on it with 'what if' thoughts.
You CANNOT use breathing exercises to change your breathing or cure your anxiety disorders.
If you do breathing exercises, you will focus on the breathing issue and perpetuate it. Anyone who tells you otherwise, hasn't got enough knowledge to be helping you.
If you don't have any anxious breathing issues, this isn't an issue but for those with anxiety breathing problems... it is vital.
It is important for you to understand that your anxiety disorder is not caused by bad breathing or by 'life pressure'... it is a systemic condition caused by a genetic predisposition.
We will show you how to remove the disorder centrally... your breathing will then automatically return to normal.
