Overcoming Acute Anxiety & Depression – Part 1

 

When Brenda* walked through the door of the Bioenergy Treatment Clinic she was shaking from the tremor that engulfed her entire body. She would experience this 24/7. She could barely complete her patient’s form, as she couldn’t steady her hand. Brenda now 61 had experienced acute anxiety since the age of seventeen. Over the years she would pop in and out of the heightened levels of symptoms, however for the last 3 weeks it had peaked beyond anything she had experienced before.

Over the years Brenda had seen various psychiatrists. She spent time in various residential clinics, tried acupuncture and EFT but none of the treatments had offered her a sustained improvement.

She had been on a concoction of medication including: Zopiclone a hypnotic used for insomnia; Atenolol and Lisinopril for blood pressure; Flupentixol an antipsychotic drug; Sertraline an antidepressant; and Lofepramine an antidepressant.

Brenda was caught up in a cycle of acute anxiety and depression. Her symptoms often came without warning. They included: anxiety attacks, fear phobia, panic attacks, tremor, grinding of teeth (Bruxism), depression, couldn’t get out of bed, tinnitus, fear of noise, loss of appetite, unable to focus on reading, gastro reflux, absent minded, nightmares, poor motor control, inability to drive, unable to function in day-to-day life and running the home.

As you can see from her history Brenda was unable to get on with day-to-day responsibilities and tasks. Everything was an uphill struggle and most things were beyond her reach…to be continued.
