Amygdala and Anxiety – what is the Amygdala?
Many people ask: Can I reverse anxiety?
“The amygdala is a pair of small organs in the brain, each about the size of an almond. The amygdala acts like a thermostat regulating, amongst other things, our normal baseline anxiety level.
As anxiety levels rise in response to stresses such as bereavement, work stress or money worries for example, the amygdala’s needle is pushed up to the ‘high anxiety’ zone.
Under normal circumstances, this needle returns to normal after the event, but when the stress or anxiety you experience is relentless, the needle gets stuck at the high anxiety position, it becomes instinctual.
Amygdala and Anxiety – how are they related?
The subconscious mind which controls all the automatic bodily symptoms, thinks that this new anxiety level is appropriate and normal; but you know consciously that it isn’t. It is as if the hard drive of your mind has been reprogrammed with new anxious software.
With this new anxiety level come sensations and symptoms of anxiety disorder and maybe even panic attacks, phobias and disturbing thoughts.
