i am currently doing the linden method.
I have only just started so (10 days in) so I am unsure whether it is working or not yet. I suffer mildly from anxiety. Since starting the method I have stopped my medication - I was only on .25mg on xanax once or twice daily! It has been 6 days without any medication and I feel great.
I have a sinus infection at the moment so that has me a little run down, but once I am over that I am sure that this will work. He knows what we go through as he went through it for years.
It cost me $260.00 au. And it has 12 months money back - so why not try it!
Take care and let me know if you get it and how it works for you
you get a folder which contains information on his life and experiences. There are 9 pillars, each pillar contains a topic that you must include in your everyday life. You do one pillar each day for 9 days then you implement them! It is hard an example of a pillar is - stop researching your condition. Another is stop leaning on other people!
There are also relaxation cd's that you put on before you go to bed or when you are feeling a little anxious. A tia chi dvd, a panic stopper cd - you listen to this while having a panic attach, I haven't had to listen to it.
So that is a breif summary.
It willnot sure your anxiety totally just shows you and taches you how tyo divert your thoughts when you are feeling anxious
Just wanted to let those who were enquiring about the linden method know that it does help alot. The only catch is that you need to follow it exactly as it says, which is kind of hard at first but it really does pay off. I was agorophobic and now I am able to work and go out. Yes I do have my off days where I feel crappy but I know that I won't die from the way I feel or even a panic attack. Basically what panic attacks are, are a combination of factors. Lack of self esteem, negative thinking (big time), food allergies/sensitivities, mineral and vitamin deficiencies and improper breathing and posture. It takes work, time and patience but isn't it worth it if you get rid of it for good? I think so! A good book to read that will also help you is lucinda bassett "from panic to power"!!!! She's had it and now doesn't and she opened up a clinic and is helping others get through it. Anyone can overcome this situation but we need to change our life style and most importantly our thinking patterns. She believes that our thoughts create our panic and she is absolutely correct!!!
Ciao and all the best, good luck with your panic-free, anxiety-free life!!!!
I am currently trying it out.It really spells out what anxiety & panic
attacks are.I am experiencing some relieve but just got it a week
ago.If privacy isn't an issue I would recommend the download
version as it is $97 u.S. While the printed version mailed is $187 u.S.
I like the way you can pay in 4 payments as well as the 12 month
guarantee.The key with the linden method is that your anxiety level
gets set a bit higher and through positive thinking,proper breathing
and diversional thoughts/actions during attacks will eventually bring
your anxiety level down. I figure it's worth a shot.
i tried the linden method and yes to a certain extent it does help and is very informative and reassuring however I sent mine back. Why? For a start I don`t think it`s right to be promised all these wonderful things and you should definately not have to pay to get well again. If it was a physical problem you wouldn`t expect to pay for it.
I don`t believe there is anything in it that will change your life, its only you tha can get you better and that is essentially what linden is saying. There is no miracle cure the rules or pillars you have to follow are basic common sense.
It`s good to reassure you but it`s a lot of money to end up leaving on a shelf.
I have got much better all on my own. I would suggest anything by claire weekes they are much more helpful.
It basically takes established methods and brands them under his own name and marks up the price. You would be better served buying a cbt book and doing the exercises on your own if you want lasting relief. Cbt has changed my life more than I ever thought anything could. I highly recommend cbt for panic, anxiety and depression. The book we used in my group called Been there, done that? Do this! By sam obitz has an exercise called the tea form in it that is excellent. Start doing the tea form exercise and once you get the hang of it you will make great strides in fighting your anxiety. You need to spend a little time each day on them as you are trying to replace your old ways of thinking with this new way that will eliminate most of your anxiety. Take care and know you can get better if you learn to think more objectively about your symptoms through the cbt exercises. Good luck!
