Do you have any memories that make you anxious? These memories have been conditioned by sympathetic activity of your nervous system so strongly that merely remembering them feeds back to your autonomous nervous system and triggers a fight or flight response. Use our Phobia Management App to upload any uncomfortable image and recondition it to parasympathetic activity using PLB. You can even use URL of images from web. Its simple and it's super fun!
Try it yourself, imagine any visual image that makes you anxious and simultaneously exhale like you would want to blow a candle. Exhale as much as possible while simultaneously visualizing that visual in your mind. Your brain now conditions this visual stimulus with the parasympathetic tone that is being induced by neurons in the brainstem. The next time you are confronted with this visual stimuli, your brain will trigger the parasympathetic tone as it was conditioned by the above experiment consequently slowing heart, relaxing muscles and promoting digestion. If you reverse this experiment, imagine the same visual and try inhaling simultaneously you would condition a sympathetic arousal similar to a Fight and Flight response and if repeated it would escalate towards a panic attack.
