'Hug A Tree'...Tree hugging has been and always will be ridiculed.. but try it yourself. Go to a wood.. blindfold yourself..ahem..or just shut yer eyes.. hug a couple and you'll note the differance between old ,dead and live trees instantly..when you've selected your tree...stand against it and wrap your arms around it, you'll notice at first the old rough bark under your fingers, then your sense of smell is heightened, the trees tarry scent goes straight to your brain, you will then after a while begin to feel a beat from deep within the tree, the healthier the tree the stronger the beat, you'll gradually feel your own energy melding with that of the tree, drawing you into it.You'll then start to feel your senses change and heighten ect...ect...if excersised correctly this can take us into a deeper state with our innerselves than most of us have the courage or openmindedness to even imagine...try it!! A very good form of meditation or individual soul-searching  not to be scoffed at. but will !

 As for the 'Walking' I think it could be a good idea, it's a scientific fact that excersise can reduce and even totally eradicate symptoms of feeling down and depressive state of the mind as it produces the chemicals and hormones that balances this. Speaking on behalf of myself and other people whom i've had longterm correspondance and friendships with in the 'sportfield' i've yet to come across any of them whom i've ever heard of being of this mindstate during the time they've been involved in regularly excersising.Myself too have never experienced depression and if i've ever felt really down and believe me i've had plenty of reason to like anyone else i don't let it win and get off my backside and do something that's going to get the adreniline going because i think that aswell as a lot of deep thinking about knowing yourself and being yourself and learning is a better preventer and cure than any pill.

Admin fantastic pregnacy link too...On top of it all the beauty of that brings a smile to us all,,xxxsteeleyma

Naah H6 never tried it though reading books ect theres a lot who do and know a guy that has n worked for him, i would like to give it a go mind you (but where i'm from i'd be the talk o the toon if caught) as from these peoples experiences its some feelin!! Noo i'm up for any 'some feelin' as long as it's natural,safe and i don't get lifted for it. Jesting aside although i just spotted the previous posts n without going into too much i posted a bit about it. ....But i do love to draw trees...when i'm trying to think of ideas of pictures or designs n stuff i do this n it always gets the imagination going for me..my doodle so to speak.

As for the Depression i may seem narrow-minded to some on the matter but i'm a bit of a pain in the butt i know when a subject gets my attention that i have to get my view across, (this is my slagging from my family n friends all my life) but we all do the same on whichever catches our attention, its merely my own view on my own life experiences, i don't believe that someone has to be handed a certificate of degree to be an expert on any matter,again thats just what we've been conditioned to believe...for instance i dropped out of my art history course as they couldn't teach me anything that either i didn't know,didn't need or couldn't already do, so to me i was wasting my time for the sake of being handed a piece of paper to be eventually lost the back of a drawer, but do admire anyone who has spent years of hard work doing so to gain knowlege ,employment ect..To me experteese is indeed more appreciated by self experience...visits to the moon disregarded. 

I don't personally think depression is an illness, i believe it's a state of mind that we can all experience. Brought on by many things such as circumstance,relationships,grief,traumatic or even horrifiying experiences. Note i've stated it's not an illness, not to state it doesn't exist.

We all have the capacity in our minds to eradicate this state...without medical help. The 'illness' to me is and should be taught more to people merely a form of to put it simply..'a stuck record'. Whilst our minds are taken over with negativity this same negativity overwhelms us with feelings of sadness and dare i say self-pity and no means to an end which we don't ultimately recognise as such is all too easy for this to feel our 'normal self though not-normal' it can swarm us without notice at any time..for example..Post Natal Depression..Nope..no such thing to me...during pregnancy the body goes through extreme hormonal changes..thus for the first couple of months can bring all sorts of feelings that us mums can't control..let alone fathers comprehend...middle and late pregnancy the hormones are at such state that it would be virtually impossible for a mother-to-be in a depressive mood as the mind is being overloaded with endorphines..natural highs..which at its best can make us women too hot too handle between the sheets!!..or in otherwords to those we bump into in the street...'Glowing'..post-natal-depression to me through experience is purely the brain-hormonal levels trying to sort themselves out again aswell as the whole body sorting itself out again..so of course this has to have some kind of mishaps along the way..it takes up to 2 yrs for the rest to get back to the norm, skin,shape..ect..so why not the mind? They give you a questionaire after several weeks postnatal, do the ticks, give you a score and ultimately tell us if we're normal or depressed...maybe if they'd stop convincing us all that if we're moody,can't handle the constant tiredness, sleepless nights unavoidable rows and tensions in the houshold ect we'd all go back to thinking it's just the 'blues' they were so content with for centuries! This i've highlighted as it's when i've had most boughts of feeling low, and believe me a new mum can wake up feeling on top of the world and just takes one silly thing to think it's the end of the world...understand what i'm getting at?..The brain will always intrigue us...fire all sorts at us...whatever its brought on by...but this same part of us only needs to be looked at by it's owner whilst going through the challenges for that is all it is...not illness, and we can all fight off negative thinking, it just takes five minutes to decide what your going to do to banish it, life is to be relished and don't let anyone force that horrible dark void into yours...and their is not a pill in the world that can suss out your mind like you can and take charge.

Imagine what it would be like if you could:

  • Become YOU again; turn back the clock to before you had anxiety and/or panic attacks
  • Become more able to cope than ever before, your anxiety & panic attacks have strengthened you, allow that strength to shine through
  • Become the 'pillar of strength' rather than the weak link
  • Feel free to do what you want to do in your life free from panic attacks and/or anxiety
  • Be free of obsessive thoughts or OCD
  • NEVER consider your anxiety, anxiety symptoms, panic attacks or inappropriate sensations and thoughts again

STOP - this is entirely possible and this website will show you how.

What are your symptoms?

  • Chest pains or palpitations with or without panic attacks?
  • Panic attacks or generalised anxiety?
  • Muscle pains, tingling, numbness?
  • Shortness of breath or smothering sensations?
  • Stomach or bowel problems?
  • Sweating, insomnia or tiredness?
  • Dizziness or feeling faint with or without panic attacks?
  • Disturbing or confused thoughts?
  • Depression, anger or irritability?
  • Feeling alone, isolated or desperate?
  • Panic attacks and anxiety related phobias like agoraphobia or social phobia?
  • Agoraphobia or social phobia
  • Obsessions, OCD or inappropriate/aggressive/sexual thoughts?

What is Obsessive Compulsive Disorder or OCD?

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is the name commonly given to the condition that causes conscious or sub-conscious obsessive thought processes which may cause compulsive actions. These compulsive actions are said to be obsessive because they usually involve a normal action that is repeated many times, forming what is described as a ritual.

These compulsions commonly include rituals such as compulsive hand washing, counting, checking, cleaning and other normal but highly exagerated activities. These obsessive compulsive disorder rituals can seriously and quite destructively interfere with 'normal' life practices and can sometimes be accompanied with other anxiety 'disorders' such as agoraphobia, panic attacks and other phobias.

VERY IMPORTANT- OCD is NOT an anxiety disorder!

Firstly- it isn't a disorder, the word disorder implies illness, OCD is NOT an illness, it's the symptom of a behavioural condition.

Secondly-  it's a symptom of underlying inappropriate anxiety and NOT a stand alone condition. Read on to find out why.

What treatment options are there for obsessive compulsive disorder?

The usual treatment for this condition is therapy based. When the patient understands that their actions are irrational, they can use the therapy exercises prescribed by a psychologist to retrain themselves to react more appropriately and eventually to re-learn normal behaviour. The success of therapy based treatment is dependent on the psychologists ability and your willingness to practice the therapeutic exercises that you are prescribed but usually this process is drawn out and quite unsuccessful.

Some doctors prescribe medication for obsessive compulsive disorder. This couldn't be more inappropriate. OCD is the symptom of an anxiety disorder and as such, the only solution is to eliminate the underlying anxiety disorder.

Here is a fact for you: In EVERY case of OCD, in every client who experiences weird, scary, violent, sexual and massively inappropriate thoughts about things which they would never actually do; in every case where the OCD client has carried out many rituals, compulsions and actions which may seem weird and unbelievable to others - we have succeeded in completely eliminating all of those things and freeing them from the anxiety that binds them.

If you believe that:

  1. your OCD is a stand alone condition.
  2. that you have a mental illness or personality disorder
  3. that you have to learn to manage your OCD for life
  4. that there is no cure

I can't begin to tell you just how wrong you are.

Obsessive behaviour is caused by 'catastrophic thought processes', the fear of the consequenses of not doing what your obsessions instruct you to do- this is anxiety driven.

Whether you think inappropriate thoughts or open and close the door 20 times before leaving, whether you count things as you pass them or imagine doing horrible things to people you love, you have anxiety disorder.

How do I know this? Because I have been there too. Inappropriate sexual and aggressive thoughts, counting, obsessive behaviours and compulsions, I suffered them all for over 10 years, in fact, I even had them when I was a young child and thought they were absolutely normal.

I completely eliminated those thoughts, stopped the rituals and now live anxiety free. So, if you think The Linden Method isn't for you because you have OCD and OCD can't be cured and certainly not by a program intended for those who suffer with anxiety and not OCD, how very wrong you were!

OCD is a symptom of anxiety disorder - let us show you how to eliminate your anxiety and your OCD simultaneously.

Charles Linden
