"We do not get panicked by some irrational force....The panic (and panic attacks) is a response to an alarm, a danger. In brief, panic attacks may be quite rational, responding to real imprinted events. Too often we try to remove the danger signal while leaving the danger intact. This often happens when the danger is situated down in the brainstem and out of sight. As long as we deal in words and explanations, we can never arrive at the original danger...."
-- Arthur Janov, Ph.D. M.D., Primal Healing (2007), pps. 76-77
