  1. Keys to Success for Extinguishing Phobias: What Works on Fear of Flying, Spiders, Germs…

    Keys to Success for Extinguishing Phobias: What Works on Fear of Flying, Spiders, Germs…

    Here’s an inspiring and heartening story for you. We got this email from a woman who’d been suffering from a fear of flying that restricted her life and severely limited her options. She describes how a little therapy, some guided imagery and a couple of audios opened up her world again. Here she is:

    Dear Health Journeys and BR,

    I had to write and tell you this!!!!! I have been afraid of flying for many years, ever since I was a young teenager and we ran into some turbulence on a family plane trip to Mexico. Over the years, it has gotten worse rather than better. The fear became more and more pronounced.

    At work I was passed over for promotions in the past few years, because of my inability to travel. My social life and vacation choices were also limited. My fear was an embarrassment and I could not readily explain it. I believe it made me more shy around people and closed me off from sharing myself with others, for fear that the topic would come up.

  2. What You Don’t Know About Traci Stein PhD, the Voice We All Love

    What You Don’t Know About Traci Stein PhD, the Voice We All Love

    I first met Traci Stein in the late nineties when she was Mehmet Oz’s point person for mind-body research & evaluation at Columbia Presbyterian.

    In those pre-TV show days, Mehmet was trying out various techniques like guided imagery, when not inventing valves out of esoteric pig parts or doing CABG surgeries on beloved NY luminaries like Joe Torre, manager of the Yankees.

    Traci was amazing to work with from the very start – smart, diligent, accommodating, responsible, considerate, and insanely productive.

  10. How to Get Over a Phobia

    How to Get Over a Phobia

    Hi BR - LOVE (!) your audios; thank you for your beautiful work. I have all your programs that your website’s search engine says relate to PTSD. 

    My question: a decade ago, I developed a phobia of spiders. (I’m getting chills and shudders, even as I write this.) Our beautiful new home in a new city was overrun with 'predator spiders' (huge, Amazonian creatures!) and about 20 different other species - hard to believe, but anyway - we moved.  

    I went to therapy for quite some time; no help. A few years ago, I was diagnosed with anxiety (no kidding :-) and am on meds. I am doing extremely well, but every time I see a 'beast' in the house (just the 'typical' critters of Spring) I go into full panic mode. This is only for spiders - no other bug produces the long-lasting panic in me.
