tons of info on the website- lindenmethod.com. but basically it boils down to this:
- the reason for anxiety is not because of genetic imbalances of neurotransmitters (though he would admit that some people are more prone to developing anxiety problems on the whole). it is because of conditioning. think of an RPM gauge on a car. in times of stress it redlines. but normally this goes back to normal once the triggering event passes. but if we have lots of situations back to back and the needle is constantly in the red zone, the body starts to be conditioned to think that the base line anxiety level is much higher than it should be. very much like diet. you eat way more than you should on a regular basis and your body eventually changes what it perceives to be a healthy natural weight.
he says all the stems in the amygdala - the region of the brain that deals with emotion and lots of subconscious and autonomic processes. you can reset the base line by doing various things. lots of this could be considered similar to CBT.
