Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 08, 2012
Anxiety, phobias, panic attacks, fear of public speaking, shyness, nervousness, self-consciousness--these reactions paralyze anyone from taking actions or being successful. Dr. Carol Francis, Psychologist in the Los Angeles South Bay Areas discusses 20 Tools which notably reduce anxiety, fear and panic attacks on Dr. Carol Francis Radio Talk Show October 8 at 10:00 and podcast immediately thereafter at BlogTalkRadio.com/dr-carol-francis.
One consideration is how anxiety is big business, unfairly so. Author Harriet Fraad wondered if profitting from the worries and cares of people was inappropriate. She claimed that pharmaceutic companies make billions prescribing medications that might work 25% of the time and only work when taken. (http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/cifamerica/2011/mar/15/psychology-healthcare). Perhaps cures for anxiety are being replaced by keeping patients dependent on the symptom relievers.
Dr. Carol Francis determined that anxiety is simultaneously a psychological complication, physical response and physiological - biochemical process, belief-system difficulty, self-esteem failed-moment, trauma response (such as PTSD, Abuse, Frightening Event), and societally programmed response.
Dr. Carol Francis states, "How to tackle each aspect of anxiety and be free of fears, shyness, phobias, panic-attacks is always the key question and in this program 20 Tools will be examined to help individuals take charge of their anxieties and tackle their life with boldness and triumph."
Dr. Carol Francis also explains that "Eating disorders, smoking addictions, and other habits which people wish they could be relieved of also are often associated to personal history or moments of fear and anxiety relieved temporarily by eating, smoking, biting nails, hand-wringing, drug dependence, alcohol dependence etc."
Dr. Carol Francis is author of "If You Can't Stop Eating, Maybe You're Hungry: Reset Your Cravings" and Quit Smoking KISS Away Cigarettes.".
