Don't know if you are at all into this sort of stuff, but there is a site with decent hypnosis downloads called (get this) www (dot) hypnosisdownloads (dot) com
They have a large library--and they aren't that expensive. The site was recommended to me as a resource by a counselor years ago. I've used it for a few things. Not sure I'd put stock in the "big stuff" but for smaller things like mood boosting and power napping and the like, it seems to be worth a few dollars.
Just an idea...
Thanks, I will check it out.
I can't remember if you have said this before, but do you have Bartonella? My only symptoms of Bartonella were a preponderance of neuro and gut symptoms along with anxiety. If I hadn't tested positive for it, it might have taken a while to figure out. My anxiety pretty much disappeared after I switched from Rifampin to Levaquin (no tendon problems so far).
I would sometimes take 1/2 of a .5g dose of XanaX at night. A couple times I took one during the day (like the time my husband walked up to me and handed me one, saying authoritively, "Here. Take this."). I do feel it helped. It wasn't a big enough dose to make me feel weird. (It is pretty clear that 'drug sensitivity' is also on my list.)
I haven't tried any natural treatments for it, but I would imagine that chamomile and others would be helpful. Sorry I am not much help?
There are all sorts of natural approaches to anxiety...I have been on some for 4 years..different for everyone, I would ask for an adrenal saliva test to determine which will be affective for you... Good luck
i actually got my IGenx co-infection results this afternoon which came out positive for Bartonella and I think I have every symptom you can have. I posted pre-results but now I know why I am having those symptoms. I had a bad reaction from Xanax and I am also sensitive to meds so hate the thoughts of having to take some other pill but thanks for the info on the antibiotics. I might switch too.
i will ask my LLMD about that test, thanks
