A message from Barry McDonagh:

Has any of this ever happened to you?

  • Maybe you have found yourself in the hospital's ER because you thought you were having a heart attack, only to be told later it was anxiety?
  • Do you ever fear you might stop breathing because your chest feels tight and your breathing is erratic?
  • When you drive, do you fear the idea of getting stuck in traffic, on a bridge, or at a red light?
  • Do you ever feel afraid you might lose control or go insane?
  • Have you struggled with anxious, intrusive thoughts?
  • Do you ever feel uncomfortable in enclosed spaces such as supermarkets, cinemas, public transport, or even sitting at the hairdresser's?
  • Do you fear socializing because you might get anxious and have to leave in a hurry? What will they think, right?

I know how you feel because I have been there too!

  • I know you fear that this problem will get worse, and you fear you might eventually lose control.
  • I know you feel anxious doing very simple things like standing in a queue, driving or even leaving your home.
  • I know you have tried other treatments and traditional 'coping' exercises that did not work.
  • I also know most people in your life don't get it. They wonder why you are so anxious all the time and wish you would just 'snap out of it.'

The #1 Reason Panic Attack Treatments Fail

Many of the people who come to me have gone through years of unsuccessful treatments for ending panic attacks. They have tried everything from anti-anxiety medication to talk therapy, all the way to alternative treatments like hypnotherapy and acupuncture. But why do all these treatments fail to get lasting results?

The #1 reason these treatments fail is because they do not teach the person to end the fear of fear. Instead they teach a person to 'cope' with the problem and to 'manage' the anxiety in the hope that it will eventually go away.

Meet the Usual Suspects!

Everyone has his or her own sensation or feeling that strikes terror inside. Here is a summary of the top offenders. (don't worry if yours is not listed here, there are plenty more):

  • heart Home
  • brain Home
  • phys Home
  • musal Home
  • brain i Home

Pounding heart or missed beats:

girl1 Home

In at number 1 as the most common symptom of anxiety is the racing or pounding heartbeat (palpitations). Palpitations are short, abrupt periods in which the heart suddenly starts beating fast. If you're in a sensitive state, this can ring alarm bells because you fear a sudden heart attack. The more you panic, the faster the heart beats. It's therefore understandable why many people in this situation jump to conclusions and dash to the hospital ER for medical help.

The next most worrying sensations in relation to the heart are 'missed heartbeats.' The medical term for missed heartbeats is extra systoles. A missed heartbeat usually involves an extra beat between two normal beats. Given the pause that follows this premature beat, it seems as if one beat was missed.

The New England Journal of Medicine recently published a study by Dr. Harold Kennedy. He found that healthy people with frequent irregular heartbeats appear to be no more prone to heart problems than the average person. The majority of even the healthiest people experience palpitations, missed beats, or pounding in the chest. Panic Away will teach you how to respond correctly when you experience any these sensations. You can move past this fear very quickly with the right guidance. Of course, it goes without saying that any concern about your heart or health in general should always be checked out by your doctor.

Dizziness, lightheadedness:

girl2 Home

When someone experiences high anxiety or panic, it's very common for that person to feel light-headed or dizzy. This sensation is alarming becauseit makes you feel very vulnerable. If you're alone, you might fear falling unconscious with no one to look after you. Or if the sensation happens in public,you might feel feelings of vulnerability while surrounded by strangers. The dizziness often felt during an episode of anxiety is caused by increased respiration. People tend to over breathe (hyperventilate) when they're anxious, whichcan lead to dizziness or light-headedness.

Dizziness can also be triggered by pressure to perform in certain situations. It's very uncommon for a person to faint when feeling anxious or threatened. This is because fainting is the result of low blood pressure. When we faint, our bodies fall to the ground. This allows blood to be supplied easily to the brain, a clever safety mechanism. When you feel anxious, your blood pressure goes up, not down. Hence, fainting is unlikely because your brain has plenty of blood supply.

Difficulty breathing, a sense of feeling smothered:

girl3 Home

It's common for people with anxiety to mention fears about their breathing. Some feel that their breathing is very labored and shallow. These fears are almost always accompanied by a tight sensation in the chest or throat area.

A frequent complaint from people experiencing this sensation is worry that they're not getting enough oxygen or that they might stop breathing altogether. They feel forced to take conscious control of their breathing. The chest or throat tightness that causes uncomfortable or shallow breathing is very common. It's actually the chest and throat muscles that are tense. If this happens to you, it gives you the false impression that you're not breathing correctly or getting enough air.

This can lead to panic and light-headedness, which confirms your fears of not getting enough air. You can then see how a cycle of anxiety begins as one fearful sensation feeding off another. The breathing fear comes from feeling uncomfortable in that area and then having anxious thoughts about suffocating or fainting from lack of oxygen. Don't let it worry you. Believe me, you could spend every minute of the next ten years worrying that you'll stop breathing, but in reality you won’t. Panic Away teaches you how to overcome this fear by releasing the tension in that area and by triggering a new response to the sensation.

Tingling or numbness in the hands:

girl4 Home

When panic attacks begin, people often feel a tingling sensation in their body. The medical term for this is paresthesia. More generally known as the feeling of pins and needles, it's a sensation of tingling, pricking, or numbness of the skin, and it has no apparent long-term physical effect. Paresthesia is most commonly felt in the hands, arms, mouth, and feet. Don't be alarmedâ€"this is perfectly natural to experience in connection with high anxiety. It is part of the fight or flight response.

Fear of losing control or going mad:

girl5 Home

During a panic attack, some people are prone to believe they're going to lose control. This feared loss of control can be physical (i.e., that all your vital organs will completely lose the run of themselves and descend into chaos) or emotional/mental (i.e., that you'll lose your grip on reality). Those who hate social embarrassment tend to suffer from this fear the most. The feared loss of control can range from screaming in public to picking up a knife and killing the nearest and dearest person to you. Put your mind at rest! As scary as those thoughts may be, you're not going to commit any of these acts. The reason you experience those thoughts is because your body feels out of control. Your mind thinks that if your body is out of control, it is next on the list.


The sensation of unreality is depersonalization or derealization. Many people who experience panic attacks and general anxiety become distressed by this sensation and feel they may be losing their minds. They report feeling disconnected, as if their world has become nothing more than a projection of a film. This sensation ends as soon as the person's anxiety level is reduced. You have to trust me on that. No harm has been done to your mind, nor is it a sign of some serious problem. Use Panic Away to end this sensation by quickly reducing general anxiety.

You are a lot braver than you give yourself credit for!

Dealing with anxiety is no easy feat. I know you feel a sense of shame because of the way you feel, but trust me; you are a lot braver than you think you are. Actually you already do the bravest of things. You get up each day and get on with life. It does not make headline news, but it counts because it is real bravery, true courage.

The average person has no idea how terrifying a panic attack can be or how upsetting all day general anxiety is, BUT you get on with it regardless. You go to work, you pick the kids up, and you look after your family. You do this even when you are feeling really bad!

If you had a physical complaint, people could understand. However, when you say it is 'anxiety.' they look at you a little strangely. I am so glad you kept searching for a solution because we are going to turn you into a your own HERO. You will be the hero of your own life where you overcome this struggle.

Yes, there is life after anxiety

over Home

Some of the greatest doctors in the world have advocated
the same approach for ending anxiety:

viktorfrankle Home

Dr. Viktor Frankl

dr.clarie Home

Dr. Clarie Weekes

Dr. Viktor Frankl and Dr. Clarie Weekes were two doctors who made what many regard as the greatest contribution to treating anxiety. They did not see anxiety as a mental illness but rather a problem of an over-sensitized nervous system that could be easily corrected with the right approach.

hope and help HomeTheir pioneering work should have become the mainstream approach for treating anxiety but was unfortunately pushed aside in the early 1960?s with the rush to prescribe
anti-anxiety medications.

The 21-7 Technique™ (as taught in Panic Away) has its roots in the great teachings of these two doctors but brings their
methodology into the 21st century with a more holistic system that is incredibly effective and easy to apply.

These people didn't hesitate. You shouldn't either.

How does this program actually work?

All the techniques in Panic Away are designed to allow your body to heal naturally. This is achieved by pushing your mind to move out of the way and allowing your parasympathetic nervous system to activate. By continuously stimulating your stress response, it is your anxious mind that keeps this from occurring. In essence, Panic Away teaches you to trick your anxious mind out of the way so your body and mind can begin to relax again.

Once your anxious mind is no longer stimulating the stress response, you quickly begin to feel more like your old self again. In addition to this, you learn how to stop panic attacks from occurring by short-circuiting the panic loop and ending the fear of fear.

Now is YOUR time.

second HomeHow will tomorrow be any different if you do not take action today? I know many of you fear taking action to end your anxiety in case you fail. Then you might feel even more desperate than before. But that is just the anxiety speaking, not the real you. Decide that TODAY is the day for action.

This is about improving the quality of your life dramatically. In fact this could be the most important decision you make in a long time. You can have freedom again, It's your birthright, it's just a matter of deciding to go after it! Remember, deciding NOT to act is also a decision. You must make the move towards an anxiety free life. It will not find you.
