Anxiety Attacks (panic attacks) and Anxiety Disorder: Information, help, support, and counseling/therapy.

Anxiety attacks (including panic attacks and their symptoms):

Anxiety attacks (including panic attacks, anxiety disorder, and their symptoms) can be awful, frightening, and frustrating. Those who experience them know how difficult they can be. But you can successfully treat them!

Too many people suffer needlessly.

Anxiety is NOT a disease, illness, or biological condition you inherit or contract. It's also not a result of a chemical imbalance or biological problem in the brain.

Anxiety (including anxiety attacks, panic attacks, and the anxiety symptoms they produce) is a condition we cause. It only lingers when we don’t understand it or know how to overcome it.

All of us at have experienced excruciating anxiety in our own lives. We know how it feels and what it can do.

Because we’ve experienced it AND have successfully overcome it, we also know that not only is it treatable but anyone can successfully address problematic anxiety when they know how. In this regard, knowledge is power! The more you know, the better off you'll be.

NOTE: The above video was recorded in 2008, so Jim has been recovered for over 27 years rather than 21 as he mentions in the video.

All of us at have successfully overcome anxiety disorders. We continue to live normal lives because we learned HOW.

For example, I (Jim Folk) suffered with intensely debilitating anxiety (including intense and persistent panic attacks) for 12 years (from 1974 to 1986). But after discovering how to successfully address problematic anxiety, I recovered in 1987 and continue to live with normal health (over 27 years).

Because of our own struggles, we are committed to helping others so that they can regain their normal and healthy lives, as we have.

We do this by:

  1. Providing the most up-to-date anxiety information, help, and support in the members area of our website.
  2. Offering personalized assistance to those who prefer to have step-by-step help with their recovery via Personal Coaching/Counseling/Therapy.

While anxiety disorder recovery is attainable, there aren’t any “quick fix,” “miracle cures,” or “secret remedies.” Anxiety recovery requires accessing the right information, help, and support. Then, applying the right tools to bring about results. Anyone can do it when they know how and have the proper support.[1]

Sadly, many people try a wide assortment of herbs, remedies, vitamins, and secret formulas in hopes of finding lasting relief. Unfortunately, these options generally don’t provide satisfactory or lasting relief. So many people continue to flip flop between hope and despair, feeling better and feeling worse...for years. This is a common struggle for many with anxiety disorder.

But, success can be attained.[1] We know what it takes to overcome problematic anxiety because we've done it ourselves. And since we’ve done it ourselves, we know the struggles and challenges. But we also know how to succeed.[2]

We encourage you: Don’t suffer needlessly. There's a lot you can do to successfully address problematic anxiety, as we have.[1] We’d like to help you do that.

The combination of good self-help information and working with an experienced anxiety disorder therapist, coach, or counselor is the most effective way to address anxiety and its many symptoms. Until the core causes of anxiety are addressed - we call these core causes the underlying factors of anxiety - a struggle with anxiety unwellness can return again and again. Dealing with the underlying factors of anxiety is the best way to address problematic anxiety.

Variances can occur for many reasons, including due to the severity of the condition, the ability of the person to apply the recovery concepts, and the commitment to making behavioral change.
