What Anxiety Does to Your Brain and What You Can Do About It
"For an estimated 40 million US adults, anxiety may occur even when there's no real threat, causing unnecessary stress and emotional pain. While many believe anxiety and stress to be the same, persistent anxiety actually evokes quite a different experience in your brain."
"Here is a list of 15 things which, if you give up on them, will make your life a lot easier and much, much happier. We hold on to so many things that cause us a great deal of pain, stress and suffering – and instead of letting them all go, instead of allowing ourselves to be stress free and happy – we cling on to them.

The Tapping Solution
I have tried Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) therapy that combines ancient Chinese acupressure and modern psychology to deal with some emotional and physical issues. I no longer have chronic back pain which I had suffered from since I was a teenager! This documentary follows 10 people using EFT to treat a variety of challenges, such as PTSD, chronic back pain, fear of public speaking, Fybromyalgia, abundance blocks, weight loss, smoking addiction, etc. The movie teaches you about releasing pain, how our emotions affect our bodies, releasing trauma, how our childhood is affecting us today, & how to clear limiting beliefs, using E.F.T.
"Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT): Few people want to be told that their pain is psychological or emotional in origin, but there's quite a bit of evidence that backs this up. Underlying emotional issues and unresolved trauma can have a massive influence on your health, particularly as it relates to physical pain. According to Dr. John Sarno, a psychiatrist who uses mind-body techniques to treat patients with severe low back pain, EFT has a greater than 80 percent success rate."
