It’s very common that doctors are prescribing benzodiazepines to millions of people. They work fast and effectively at treating anxiety. The problem is that you can get physically dependent very quickly and getting off of them can be very difficult, painful and excruciating. For me the rebound anxiety was unbearable. The first time I got off of them was without Kundalini Yoga and meditation and the second time was with. I’ll be honest you have to pay the piper when you go all the way off of benzos but having Kundalini Yoga and nabhi kriya specifically made a huge difference. just knowing I had a tool to use when I felt like I was climbing the walls was not only a physical comfort but a mental comfort as well.
The first time I stopped taking my benzodiazepines was a real shock. Within 48 hours I was on the ground sweating and shaking. It felt like my heart was going to burst out of my chest. It was beating so hard. The doctor said you can’t just stop taking them. I didn’t know that it could be dangerous as well. You have to taper off them slowly. Unfortunately it’s easy getting on the drug and there is not much information and support to get off the drug. My guess is that doctors don’t even realize what their patients are going to have to go through to get off of them in most cases. Doing Kundalini Yoga and meditation is a tool and there are others that I used which I will get into on the website. The core of the discipline for me was and still is doing Kundalini Yoga on a daily basis. I will have other information on tools that I used to get myself off the drugs such as acupuncture, IV drips, cognitive behavioral therapy and Trauma release exercise.
