CART - A New Respiratory Training To Combat Panic Disorder

Posted Mar 31 2011 3:34pm

This new treatment program is called CART. This new treatment teaches people who endure panic disorders to decrease their frightening symptoms by bringing their breathing back to normal.

This therapy has been shown to be more exceptional than traditional cognitive behavior for reducing both panic and hyperventilation symptoms.

CART aides patients in learning to breathe in a certain way that reverses hyperventilation. Meaning breathing above what the body requires. Produces deep or rapid breathing most common in patients with panic disorders.
