Depersonalization and Derealization Symptoms and Solutions


Depersonalization: Feelings of unreality, detachment, separation and disconnection. Fogginess and confusion.

Derealization: Surroundings look mildly different and unfamiliar.

Depersonalization and derealization are not illnesses This is important to remember. They are a group of symptoms which manifest out of a fatigued mind, which is caused by the constant habit of fearful worry.

When the mind becomes this exhausted it is prone to many unusual sensations, none being dangerous or permanent.

Once one understands that these symptoms are the product of their own behavior, it allows them complete control over changing this behavior, eliminating the source of the symptoms. One achieves this by learning how to effectively interrupt this way of thinking through proper corrections in self thought and specific behavioral skills. The mind rapidly refreshes as clarity returns. One feels like their “old self” once again as life returns to normal.

Application of a nutrition plan specifically geared towards creating a less reactive mind and body will jump start recovery. The combination of a specific nutrition plan, (geared towards boosting Serotonin levels naturally and maintaining balanced blood sugar levels) along with specific behavior modification will ensure a complete and permanent recovery, without the necessity of long term treatment or the use of medication, which often exacerbates symptoms through adverse reactions and withdrawal symptoms.

Bottom line, although symptoms may be experienced in a way often feel upsetting and frightening, they are harmless and ONLY the result of a tired mind. You have power over how you think and respond to these sensations. This is where your true control is located. Do not be fooled by the symptoms. Do not believe that you are ill. Again, this is a learned behavior, a habit that is not difficult to overcome when approached correctly.

Learn how to interrupt these intrusive symptoms and take back your life. It’s a short process which is simple to follow yet specific in nature. Do not fall victim to the habit of fearful thinking, from which these symptoms manifest. Understanding will free you from this once and for all, by allowing you to apply the proper corrections and natural techniques, which lead to complete and permanent recovery.
