using box breathing technique and memory reconsolidation to possibily cure sad disorder


I found a research made on 2017 that discovered a process called memory reconsolidation, it is a procedure that can be used to change and even remove fear memories in the brain. The process of memory reconsolidation consist of proposefully remeembering the memory that causes the fear response and imediately when you feel the fear you use especial techniques (this may be especial relaxation techniques like box breathing, or even drugs that inhibit fear and panic) to imediately stop or reduce the fear and then repeat this process, the idea is that when you do this and repeat it you are triggering the process of memory reconsolidation that is removing the fear response from the memory, so when you remenber that memory again you dont feel the fear response anymore. Acording to this article - a drug to cure fear, by Richard A Friedman on the new york times - in about four days of doing the process of memory reconsolidation the fear memory can be reduced or even removed (in the article the study was done in a patient with arachnophobia (fear of spiders), and in about 4 days the patient was able to hold a spider in his hands).



So my idea is to use the box breathing technique (inhale counting for four seconds, then stop for four seconds, then exhale for four seconds, then stop for four seconds and repeat for at least 3 times, just search box breathing on google and you will find several articles on box breathing) along with the process of memory reconsolidation to remove social anxiety (phobia). So here is what you should do: every time you remenber some memory that causes you to feel social anxiety or when you are in a situation that makes you feel socialy anxious you imediately use the box breathing technique and repeat until the anxiety stops or reduce. By doing this you are changing your brain to feel less fear and anxiety and be able to function normaly in social situations, I believe it can possibly cure social phobia.


I think you all should try the box breathing technique it is very simple and easy to do and it is very effective (even the navy seals use it), it can be used not only to treat phobias but also any other bad feelings like depression, sadness, grief, or excessive anger. It is also very discrete you can do box breathing anytime or on anyplace, no one will notice.




Here are some other links l recommend you to watch:

A video about memory reconsolidation - just type memory hackers on youtube, it is a video of 46 min.

The magazine - a prime on memory reconsolidation and its psychoterapist use as a core process of profound change

The book - unlocking the emotinal brain: eliminating simptons and their roots using memory reconsolidation

and another book called evolve your brain by doctor joe dispenza. You can download these books for free on pdfdrive

Hi thanks. I couldn't do it. Every time I thought of what makes me socially anxious and tried to inhale, the anxiety would skyrocket. it was when I didn't think of anything and inhaled that I felt relief or if I don't breathe for a while that it reduces my anxiety. I wonder if anyone could help me with this, if it could help someone with a phobia of spiders then it should be able to help with social anxiety/phobia; however, I did pray to God that He'll help me not have anymore social anxiety/phobia.

I wonder why no else replied to this thread except me as it sounds interesting or else they tried it and it didn't work for them

Hi Lily, its almost impossible to push or force unsettling thoughts out of you head. It's much better if you are able to actually work with them and change your relationship with the. Mindful meditation is something I do and it works well when applied to thoughts. It takes a bit of time and commitment.


I wont go on about it here but if you would like to know more then pm me :-) or order my 8 week course - breathe and believe with David - for just $2500 ha.


As its you Lily, I`ll throw in a keyring with my face on it ha.

**** your feelings !!

Thanks but I'm not looking into mindfulness meditation as it involves just breathing as well as that doesn't help me in terms of when I'm on the spot but you did mention about thoughts involved as well so it sounds a bit different, quite interesting.
