Postnatal Anxiety Recovery

A constant or repetitive focus on yourself, your health and wellbeing

Postnatal anxiety / depression is NOT what most people are led to believe it is

Postnatal anxiety and depression are the most misunderstood of all mental health conditions.

Sufferers are led to believe that:

- They are clinically depressed
- They have a chemical imbalance
- Circumstances (the new baby) have caused low mood

The truth about postnatal depression is simple... it has nothing to do with clinical depression and is nothing to do with your new baby... not directly at least.

The problem with postnatal anxiety and depression is that the impact of what most women are told by psychologists and doctors exacerbates the problem.

The combination of bad advice and inappropriate treatments, both medical and psychology, combine to cause mental and physical disequilibrium and a huge group of physiological 'symptoms' that cause distress and confusion.

If the anxiety / depression is addressed directly and correctly in the context of true science at its onset, it can be overcome completely and very quickly indeed.

It's not about the baby

The problem with postnatal anxiety is that it places you in hyper-vigilance, in that all of your senses are primed to respond to real threat. The natural and expected response is withdrawal. New mums become distressed when they do not respond appropriately to their new child (or other family members), believing that this is a mental health condition - it is NOTY... it is the expected response to perceived risk during an anxiety disorder.

Why don't doctors tell us about this?

Because most doctors don't have a deep enough understanding of the neurology of anxiety disorders to be able to recognise and deal with it appropriately.

Women around the world suffer because the help available to them is not appropriate.

Why is it referred to as post natal depression?

Because the condition can cause 'low mood' but this is very different to clinical depression which is a completely separate and very different condition.

In not one single case in 20 years have we seen a case of postnatal depression in which clinical depression played a part. Depression in new mums was always pre-existing or intermittent.

Our success at removing postnatal anxiety and depression is unmatched... all of our support staff are ex sufferers and parents who both understand the disorders nut also know what to do about them.

What causes postnatal anxiety and depression?

It's easy to believe that your condition is 'spiritual' or 'mental health related' because it seems to be localised within the mind, but it isn't.

Postnatal anxiety and depression aren't caused by low mood, tiredness or circumstances. They are caused by a genetic predisposition.

Only people with a genetic predisposition to suffering from an anxiety related disorder can do so. Most people, (around 75% of people), cannot suffer.

It is this science, dictated by human evolution, that both causes the condition, but also allows complete and fast recovery in the only way possible.

In the same way as there is only one way to remove hunger, there is only one way to remove emotional disorders. The body and mind are primed to deactivate them but medicine and psychology prevents that process from happening

Are the symptoms and thoughts real?

Yes they are real, in that they are not imagined, but they are not appropriate or necessary.

Your thoughts and symptoms are the product of inappropriate fear responses and the combination and impact of these on your body.

Postnatally, women go through a myriad of physical and chemical adjustments; combine these with the symptoms of an anxiety disorder and its easy to understand why they withdraw and get low mood.

What other symptoms do Postnatal Anxiety sufferers experience?

Postnatal anxiety can cause a myriad of symptoms and thoughts. Here is a list of some of them. Whilst the list is long, it is not exhaustive.

These may include some or sometimes all of the following...

Smothering sensations and shortness of breath
Racing heart, slow heart beat, palpitations
Chest Pain
Globus Hystericus - 'Lump in throat' and difficulty swallowing
Blanching (colour loss in the skin)
Excessive Perspiration (sweating)

"I know how it feels to have Anxiety - how to wake up each day feeling depleted, scared, low and anxious. 

Trust me when I say to you that you do not have to live like this. For 25 years I focused on my ailments and frailties. I was obsessed with checking, researching and trying to discover what was wrong with me.

My anxiety drove me to believe I was dying of every condition I could think of. Every time I heard someone was ill... I'd think I had that condition too. I hid away from illness. I had 8-10 panic attacks a day, OCD, Pure O, health anxiety, agoraphobia, depersonalisation, derealisation and IBS... I felt like I was falling apart.

In under three days, I erased it all. I never feel anxious now. I just live my life and if I ever feel ill, I see the doctor.
