As for public speaking; if sweating and palpitations take place, there is an exercise known as paradoxical intention. You will your heart to beat faster, and to sweat more profusely, and the body tends to do the opposite.

This method was devised by a psychiatrist (forget his name) while in a concentration camp.


It sounded somewhat familiar and my curiosity got the better of me so... looked it up. Very interesting... Thanks for sparking my brain Woofy. Smile
Quote:Paradoxical intention is a treatment approach in psychotherapy conceived by Victor Frankl, a famous Austrian neurologist who survived incarceration in Nazi concentration camps during World War II and went on to become a world-renowned psychiatrist. Frankl's approach to overcoming neurotic thought or habits is to suggest that the patient experiencing such conditions immerse himself or herself in the source of the fear. By confronting it directly on a conscious level, it is believed that the neurotic habit can be more easily seen and avoided in the future.

I think in the end, I just feel like I'm a secular person who has a skeptical eye toward any extraordinary claim, carefully examining any extraordinary evidence before jumping to conclusions. ~ Eric ~ My friend ... who figured it out.
