Let me ask about your "Cranial Electrotherapy device"; how is that working for you?
Their web site provides Selected Alpha-StimÂ® Research Studies
and a sales video. Did read the "Anxiety and Panic Attacks" forum thread "Alpha Stim" and was fascinated by poster Mick75 comments, especially his closing comments to you.
Know that it is a powerful psychological step to move towards control through acceptance and removing the fear of those things that we want to change.
For most of us this moving to gain control lets us begin to learn, to change our brains in good ways. And frankly, if my tooth hurts, I want a quicker solution, one that does not require my belief, my cognitive efforts, for in these things it is my conscious effort and that effort comes at a cost; I tire and like my muscles I, for a time, use up my strength, I don't want to play anymore. For sure most anxiety and much depression does not raise itself to tooth pain, for in long term pain we eventually grow towards numb, towards that pain invading every area of our lives, every thought, where distraction is relief, where pains good message to us is investigated and found to be false; so again we naturally move to control, and here we are again using powerful psychological steps to move towards control through acceptance and removing the fear of those things that we want to change and on this account my wonder is if the Alpha-StimÂ® is of value to you.
A word about the amygdala...
Even if science understood what it studies, the lay person's use of this knowledge is more to give us a sense of control. Science has a long way to go as witnessed in these over 9 thousand technical studies; Science Direct amygdale. If someone told us our amygdala was in backwards, we simply don't have the tools at home to prove and correct this.
Indeed it is helpful to self study and seek the latest information, for in that journey we gain hope and control and provide input to the professionals that give us service.
