B. Information specific to therapeutic means

How herbal medicine can help you?

Phytotherapy is the use of medicinal plants in different forms to treat health problems. It is a medicine that dates back to the highest antiquity. Although most of these plants can be found over the counter, see in gardens, you should never forget that by ingesting them you absorb active ingredients that can have side effects or interactions with medications you take. . Never eat a plant that you do not know well or that has been recommended to you by someone without medical training. Ask your pharmacist first what he thinks.


How energy remedies can help you?

Energy remedies include Chinese acupuncture, several thousand years old, homeopathy, which is already more than two hundred years old, and Dr. Bach's flower essences, which are just over a century old. These energy therapies have healed hundreds of millions of people on the planet every year for generations. Just because our science is unable to explain how energy medicine works does not mean that these practices should be dismissed as worthless. For over a hundred years, we didn't know why aspirin relieved headaches. That hasn't stopped doctors from prescribing it and people from consuming it. One day, probably we will know. In the meantime, let's show humility and pragmatism, if energy medicine helps you, use it. She is harmless. Our scientific medicine cannot say the same.

Never take a medicine that you think is suitable for your problem without consulting your pharmacist, the remedy could turn out to be worse than the disease.


C. Information specific to a pathology

What is stage fright? Dr. Daniel Scimeca

“Fright is not an anxiety like the others. It is an anxiety by anticipation which paralyzes and which seems to prevent us from facing a unique situation. When the actor comes on stage, it's now, not tomorrow, not later. When you take an exam, it's that day and no other. This impossibility of stepping back, of adapting, of coping with the difficulty gives stage fright a dramatic character”.


The signs of stage fright

“Having stage fright is therefore this feeling, this sensation that has become physical of being hounded by the public, the examiner. The voice changes, the hands are shaking, the legs seem to go limp, the head is no longer balanced, the heart is pounding, the sweat is profuse and the stomach is in knots. But there is worse, the tremors come to testify to the face of the world of what we wanted to hide. »


The mechanics of stage fright

My imagination creates a disaster scenario where I scare myself. By an archaic process my body will put itself in a situation of survival: fight or flee. But I can't do one or the other. All the summoned and unused energy will create an enormous pressure in me which will make me incapable of any appeal to my memory or my rationality. So that's the hole, the blank page.
