Anxiety, causes and effects

We live in a stressful and fast-paced world, and Anxiety is one of the most ubiquitous mental and emotional health issues that affect us. This article makes a difference between the causes of anxiety, and Anxiety which is an effect that we feel in our body.

Like any other health issue, whether physical or mental, we have a Cause on one hand and an Effect on the other hand. The Anxiety that we suffer from is actually an effect and manifests as headaches on and off, nausea, suffocation, stomach ache, etc.


Medicine identified your autonomic nervous system as the cause. This is a system in your body that you don't consciously control, but that regulates things like your heart rate, breathing, urination, etc. It's also the system that reacts when you are under a physical threat. The autonomic nervous system produces your fight-or-flight response, which is designed to help you defend yourself or run away from danger.


When you are under stress or anxious, this system kicks into action, and physical symptoms can appear — headaches, nausea, shortness of breath, shakiness, or stomach pain.


What mainstream medicine doesn't acknowledge is that our autonomic nervous system behaves like this because we lost control over our negative emotions due to our limiting beliefs in our subconscious, that belong to imaginary fears in most cases. Because we don't live in the Now moment, and we let our mind wander in the realm of worries and fears, we exaggerate a lot any small issue and transform it into a big one. If the fear is big enough our autonomic nervous system is triggered and we kind of shut down and wriggle under pressure of all sorts of fears.


How to alleviate anxiety

If you want quick results to alleviate anxiety, then the best point to start from from my experience is not meditation but breathing exercises, doing especially “abdominal breathing” not the usual one. Fears and anxiety tend to gather in the lower part of the lungs, and the large majority of people practically never breathe from that part (lungs volume is about 5-6 liters on average and we inhale/exhale just 0.5 liters on average - the tidal volume).


The pranayama techniques for instance try to deal with these, but there are many other breathing procedures alike.


I advise a breathing procedure to alleviate anxiety. The procedure is to do two sets of 3 breathing each, 6-7 seconds an inhale/exhale, with 2-3 sec between each inhale/exhale. During the procedure just mentalize “I inhale, I exhale” so to follow the procedure and be in the Now moment; by doing this you will avoid letting your mind drift away. When inhaling push forward your abdomen, and at exhaling bring it back. You will then circulate and release the stale air stagnating in the lower part of your lungs, which is an effect of your anxiety feeling. In a few minutes of this procedure you should feel more relaxed. Repeat if you feel not yet relaxed.

Breathing will alleviate for the moment your anxiety, but you still need to find out the cause of it and release it, and the cause is in you and here meditation might help to find it.
