Anxiety is one of the most common disorders in the U.S. affecting over 40 million adults 18 years and older. ”The cost to the U.S. is over 42 billion a year, almost one-third of the country’s $148 billion mental health bill” (www.adaa.org). Estimated costs for repeated visits for treatment range in the 22 billion mark. NIMH reports the number of people who have experience anxiety in the last 12 months is 40,000,000, with a life time prevalence of over 28%, and less than 43% of suffers seek treatment. (www.calmclinic.com). You can imagine the cost in lost work productivity, the impact on quality of life, and addiction issues such a drug and alcohol abuse.
Definition of Anxiety
Symptoms of distress, uneasiness of mind caused by fear of danger or misfortune (www.dictionary.com) nervousness or unease about an imminent event or something with an uncertain outcome. Or a more concise statement would be, “Fear of the Future.”
Causes of Anxiety
Excessive stress from life events such as illness, death in the family, divorce, medical problems, finances, job related stress, trauma from events, abuse, victimization, school, natural disasters, etc.
Physical symptoms can take the form of sweating, rapid heart rate, dizziness, trembling, ulcers, lack of sleep, lack of appetite, or excessive over eating. These symptoms in more extreme form lead to Anxiety or Panic Attacks.
Clinical Markers for Anxiety Diagnoses
Excessive worry for 6 months or more Worrying is difficult to control
In addition the patient must have 3 of the following symptoms associated with the anxiety on more days than not in the last 6 months: restlessness, fatigue, irritability, muscle tension, difficulty sleeping, and difficulty concentrating (www.medicalnewstoday.com).
Treatment for Anxiety
Medications most often used to treat Anxiety are SSRIs like Prozac, Paxil, Zoloft, or Benzodiazepines like Xanax.
Benzodiazepines are most commonly used for Anxiety because the onset of action is fast allowing for quick relief of symptoms. The most commonly used Benzodiazepine is Xanax. The biggest draw back to the Benzodiazepines are the high potential for addiction, which can occur as early as the first few weeks of treatment, the average usage is 4 to 6 months. The body builds up a tolerance which means the dose must be constantly increased. Use of the Benzodiazepines can escalate the anxiety. As the body gains tolerance to the medication, more is needed to keep the physical symptoms under control due to physical withdrawal.
The second most commonly used medication for Anxiety are the SSRIs such as Prozac, Paxil or Zoloft. The potential for dependency is very small but it takes 4 to 6 weeks for the medication to take effect and cannot be taken as an “as needed basis”. The most common side effects are sexual dysfunction, sleepiness, nausea, nervousness and weight gain.
The biggest problem with drug therapy for the treatment of Anxiety is that it just masks the symptoms. Pharmaceutical therapy does not treat the underlying problems or issues that are causing the anxiety. The side effects of the medications are also problematic, as well as cost, and compliance issues.
Therapy Treatment for Anxiety
There are many different Therapy modalities for the treatment of Anxiety. The most common are, Cognitive Therapy and Behavior Therapy. Cognitive Therapy looks at how thoughts affect anxiety and Behavior therapy works by looking at how you react to circumstances that cause you anxiety. Both have been helpful in the treatment of anxiety over a long period of time. The draw back to these treatment modalities is the expense and time to participate in these therapies. Insurance rarely pays for these therapies, or pay only limited amounts for a limited time period. This takes a big chunk out of the client’s pocket book and time. Other recommendations for the treatment of anxiety are relaxation techniques, exercise, and hypnosis.
As evident by the massive cost Anxiety has on the U.S. mental health bill, and the additional cost of repeated visits for treatment, as well as the impact of those not receiving any form of treatment, this is a gigantic problem in our society, and clearly something is not working right. Our Health Care system and traditional treatment with medications and therapy do not seem to have much to offer to the struggling public. So is there another alternative, yes, it is called The Trivedi Effect®.
Mahendra Trivedi is a Healing Master and a Transformational Leader and Speaker. He has the gift of harnessing The Vital Source of “Universal Intelligence. To Nature. To the Creator”, through his Biofield Energy Transmissions. He has relived the suffering of thousands of people from over 40 countries. What makes The Trivedi Effect® so astounding is the science behind this amazing phenomenon. Double-Blind Placebo controlled trials, the same quality (called the Gold Standard) that Pharmaceutical companies use to bring their product to market. There is a wealth of information concerning the science (with over 4,000 studies) and the impact that The Trivedi Effect® has had on Livestock, Genetics, Cancer, Microbiology, Materials Science, and Agriculture at http://www.trivediscience.com. With such powerful science behind these Biofield Energy Transmissions the potential of The Trivedi Effect® is truly unlimited. One has to ask oneself (as I did once I read through some of the science) if these Energy Transmissions can have such a huge impact, (reflected in hard science!) what can it do for You/Me?
You will find many testimonials at http://www.triveditestimonials.com reflecting how The Trivedi Effect® has changed people’s lives, their health, and their overall wellbeing. One phrase you will commonly hear spoken is the lack of “fear of the future”. When you break down the definition of anxiety, anxiety in its simplest form, is fear of the future. My own personal journey and struggle with anxiety started in 2003 when a manager I had tried to have me fired under false pretenses. It was such a shock to my body and my integrity that it literally brought me to my knees, I was totally blind sided. I was so deeply traumatized that I started having Panic attacks. I took a mental leave of absence from work and eventually quit my job because I could not go back and work for the same manager under these circumstances. He ended up making a total fool of himself and eventually got demoted, but I was deeply traumatized. I tried to manage the panic attacks myself but was not able to, I ended up seeking counseling and was prescribed an SSRI. The SSRI did help me, I wanted off of the SSRI as soon as possible, it took about 9 months. I was a Pharmaceutical Sales Representative for several years and one of the product lines I promoted was SSRI’s so I understood the disease state very well. After a traumatic event like that it takes 6 to 9 months for the serotonin receptors to re-regulate themselves. But I found myself still struggling at times with anxiety and I didn’t want to take medication. Traditional therapy was not helping so I tried hypnosis, although that helped some, it still wasn’t the answer. Then came a major turn of life events when I realized I needed to get a divorce, and the 5 year horrific journey through that divorce. I had been a stay at home mom for the last 10 years and was 50+ years old in a very bad job market.
I initially started in the Monthly Enhancement Program offered by Trivedi Master Wellness. The calls were once a month and Mahendra Trivedi would give a discourse and at the end of the program transmit a Biofield Energy Transmission to all who attended the call. Each time I attended one of these calls, I felt calm and a sense of relief which allowed me to make it through the month, and the next month, without having major anxiety or panic attacks. It was still very demanding, and strenuous as these life choice points are, but somehow these Biofield Energy Transmissions helped me maneuver through this long ordeal. As time went on I became involved as much as possible receiving these Biofield Energy Transmissions in the largest program I could manage. What I found was that the greater my exposure to the Biofield Energy Transmissions, to that Vital Force of Universal Intelligence, the stronger my connection became to my own natural nature and internal guidance. The anxiety became less and less, and eventually disappeared. I got to a place where I had no fear of the future, or if it came, it was for a moment then it would pass. Due to the development of that connection to the Universal Consciousness/Intelligence, to my knowing, to the Divine, I had no fear because I knew everything was what it was and that I would know how to move through it even in the most troubling of times.
Looking back over that 5 year struggle, with court dates, unemployment, problems with finances, debt, and children. etc, etc, I can clearly see that during the times of the most intense stress I was able to make the right decisions step by step which got me to where I am today. When the whole world seemed to be screaming, what if, what if, what if, there was that softer voice that became more distinct over time, choose this, or choose that, or that everything will work out. And as simple as it sounds, trust. I did and I made it out of that maze. Now my life is in a better place when all seemed or appeared hopeless. I mentioned earlier that Mahendra Trivedi is a Transformational Leader and Speaker. His teachings are straight forward (and one could say blunt), honest and down to earth. One of the things he points out is that the more you receive this energy the more it enhances your connection which enables you to harness that source of Universal Energy; the Energy of Nature and the Universe which optimizes your full potential in this life. He also said that it doesn’t mean you won’t have problems or challenges in your life, but the energy, that connection, will support you through them. When you listen and trust the guidance as it comes to you, even if the whole world seems to be screaming something else, you will make the right decisions that will sustain you on your journey.
I was a Pharmaceutical Sales Representative for 13 years, and I have an M.S.Ed in Counseling, so I am very knowledgeable in the treatment modalities for Anxiety, Panic Disorder and Depression. There is nothing like The Trivedi Effect® on this planet. It’s not that counseling can’t work to help manage anxiety, or that drug therapies can’t be a valid option. The Trivedi Effect® is the couture of healing, expansion, personal and spiritual growth. The energy is very intelligent and that wisdom flows through you to give you what it is you need to grow and be free. Mahendra Trivedi abilities to harness this vital source with his Biofield Energy Transmissions is an unprecedented phenomenon on this planet. These Biofield Energy Transmissions work directly on the foundation of your being, unearthing and liberating the debris for true transformation and reconnection to your natural nature, unearthing your connection to the Vital Universal source that we all carry within. The seed of our very being. I was drawn to Mahendra Trivedi and this energy, I found that it relieved my anxiety by taking away my fear of the future. That in and of itself was an amazing gift, but ultimately this energy pulled me out from a very unfulfilling life and helped me rediscover who I am. The deep love and appreciation I have for this is immeasurable. It has been a true gift this journey. Why struggle or suffer any longer? Why stay stagnate and stuck, or paralyzed by fear? I hope you will take the time to explore and experience The Trivedi Effect® for yourself and optimize your unlimited potential. It’s there just waiting for you to take that next step.
