Imagine you woke up tomorrow morning and health anxiety was gone - for good. 💡
Think for a second about how many day-to-day problems would instantly vanish if you were healthy, had your life back, and lived free of anxiety.
No more life-limiting symptoms like headache, dizziness, heart palpitations and insomnia.
No more pouring time and money into doctor visits, ER (A&E) trips, and unhelpful remedies.
No more sitting on the sidelines, watching life, experiences and opportunities pass you by.
Think this is just the way you are, and all you can do is cope? Think again. 🚫
I’ve met so many people challenged by health anxiety - from around the globe - and while their symptoms and circumstances differed, the cause of health anxiety - and what they needed to do to overcome it - was exactly the same for every single one of them.
You’re going to see:
How a newlywed from Oregon, USA, had her life overtaken by anxiety, panic and intrusive thoughts - to the point she thought she may be losing her mind - and fought back to finally enjoy life again.
How an elementary school teacher and mom of two from New Jersey, USA, who'd tried everything - from medication to therapy and CBT - and finally broke through, not just getting her life back, but making it even better.
But first, how a random guy from British Columbia, Canada finally broke the negative cycle of health anxiety, completely overcame it in 90 days, and went on to pursue his dreams (that's me!)
HealthAnxiety.coach founder 👋🏼
In 2017, I was hit with severe health anxiety.
I was overwhelmed. It consumed my entire existence, making it impossible to enjoy life, much less achieve my goals.
I lost thousands of dollars on unnecessary doctor visits, ER trips, dietary changes and supplements, unhelpful remedies, and time off work - ultimately ending an otherwise successful 17-year career.
I sat on the sidelines, watching time, experiences and opportunities pass me by, meanwhile damaging relationships with family, friends and loved ones.
Finally, I asked my doctor for help. I took the medications she prescribed, went to counselling, and got nowhere near the results I expected, and desperately needed, to get my life back.
I felt helpless, lost and in despair.
Raise your hand if any of the following approach to health anxiety recovery sounds familiar:
Go to your doctor, who offers you medication; a counsellor, who wants to dig up your past; or a therapist, who may give you some tools - but not the complete set you need to overcome health anxiety naturally.
Talk to your family, friends and loved ones, who tell you "you're fine, just try and think positive."
Join Facebook groups or forums full of anxiety victims more interested in reassurance-seeking, self-diagnosis and pity than actual recovery.
Read a thousand blogs, Instagram posts and watch YouTube videos on anxiety tips and remedies, and try to implement them on your own.
Feel disappointed when you get lousy results.
Rinse, and repeat.
We unwittingly dig ourselves deeper and deeper with incomplete, non-holistic solutions that get little to no results… when a much easier, faster path toward recovery already exists within us.
I know, I was one of them. 🙋🏻♂️
So, what changed?
Frustrated by lousy results, I created a 4-stage holistic approach to overcoming health anxiety naturally. 🌱
I created a plan.
I signed it, and asked loved ones to sign it as witnesses to my commitment to overcoming health anxiety and improving my life.
I made the definite decision to invest in myself - including time, energy and money - and making my plan a success.
As soon as I did this, my life began to change, fast!
Sixty days later, I had my life back. No more panic attacks, fewer symptoms, and more energy.
Ninety days later, I felt 100% better. No more symptoms, skyrocketing energy, and growing confidence. Plus, I looked and felt healthier than ever. 😎
I didn’t stop there. My mindset transformed, and my toolbox bursting with skills I never imagined I’d have, I began to attack my biggest goals in life. I began to LIVE, and pursue my dreams in the process.
I want this for you, too.
What I mean when I say holistic…
Here’s a simple. relevant definition:
Don’t get me wrong, your doctor plays an important role in your recovery.
… so do your loved ones.
… so does your counsellor or therapist, if you have one.
… so does your nutritionist, if you have one.
… so does your personal trainer, if you have one.
… so does every single member of your support system.
But here’s the thing:
Most people don’t have the time, money or energy to find and all the experts.
Even if they did, it’d be nearly impossible to get all your experts on the same page, working together to help you overcome health anxiety, holistically.
I credit my 90-day complete health anxiety recovery to the decision to invest in myself, and take a holistic approach to my health anxiety recovery. Period.
Even if you could, by some miracle, assemble a team of experts to create a holistic approach to your health anxiety recovery, you’d be at a disadvantage at the outset, because none of them could truly understand your unique challenges.
In other words, they’re not relatable.
They haven't experienced your symptoms, endured your pain, feared your fear or suffered your setbacks because they haven't experienced and overcome health anxiety, or an anxiety disorder, themselves.
What you need is a coach. 🏆
Someone who gets you.
Someone who’s overcome health anxiety, and generalized anxiety disorder, and is 100% dedicated to helping others do the same.
Someone who already has all the resources you need to begin a healthy life, free of anxiety.
Someone who can tie them together into a holistic health anxiety recovery plan, and give you the guidance, support and accountability you need to succeed.
I get you. 🤗
You don't have to explain your symptoms, pain, fear or anxiety to me… and I know TONS of others worldwide who are 100% committed to overcoming health anxiety naturally, just like you are.
Why group coaching works. 👍🏼
Did you know that if you state your goal publicly, you’re 42% more likely to achieve it? It’s true.
… and when you invest in achieving it, the probability goes even higher?
… and when you surround yourself with people committed to achieving the exact same goal, and helping you achieve yours, the % continues to rise?
… and when you add necessity in the form of timelines, social duty and accountability, the probability skyrockets.
The Overcome Health Anxiety Group Coaching program gives you the greatest chance at success, for an investment almost anyone can afford.

People I’ve coached have said…
“Will group coaching work for me?”
Now that you understand what group coaching is and how it works, you’re probably wondering whether it would work for your specific challenge, lifestyle and circumstances.
You’re not alone - it’s one of the most common questions people have.
Fortunately, it’s easy to find out.
But First, know this:
1. There is only ONE true cause of health anxiety and it’s exactly the same for everyone.
2. How long you’ve been challenged by health anxiety has zero influence over what you need to do to overcome it, or how long it will take you.
Now, grade yourself with the Group Coaching checklist.
Check the items below that apply to you. Then, I’ll tell you if Group Coaching could work for you.
You're exhausted by the negative cycle of health anxiety and just want it to END so you can get your life back and enjoy it once again.
You're frustrated by symptoms that seems so real and never want to go away so you can finally accept you're healthy.
You want to avoid medications and overcome health anxiety naturally.
You've tried counselling or therapy, which helped a bit, but not enough to completely overcome health anxiety.
Your anxiety can go away for a while, but always finds a way back into your life at the worst possible time.
You've been challenged by health anxiety so long you're afraid it's just who you are, and all you can do is cope.
You like being able to relate to others, share ideas, experiences, encouragement and feedback.
You know you need guidance, support and accountability in order to achieve your goals.
Did you check 2 or more boxes?
If so, Group Coaching will definitely help you overcome health anxiety naturally - no matter what you think caused it, or how long you’ve suffered.
On the other hand, there are a few reasons NOT to enrol.
If you are not 100% committed to overcoming health anxiety.
If you choose not to invest 8 to 10 hours per week for 6 weeks to improve your life.
If you are not willing to take relentless action or make positive changes in your life.
If you're scared to death at the thought of meeting with me and your fellow students for online video coaching calls.
If you prefer a self-guided course where you can work by yourself at your own pace, without any accountability.
Overcome Health Anxiety
Group Coaching Program
A 6-week accelerated coaching program with the exact resources you need to overcome health anxiety naturally, plus the guidance, support and accountability of Christian Newman (HealthAnxiety.coach founder) and people worldwide 100% committed to helping you begin a healthy life, free of anxiety.

That goes for me too! Along the way, I’ll dive deep into the details of your lifestyle, and give you the direct feedback you need to succeed.

Reasons for not enrolling.
Excuses for not investing in yourself.
Don’t get me wrong, there are legitimate reasons for not enrolling - but these are not them.
These are excuses many people tell themselves so they won’t have to do the hard things. Instead, they continue to choose a life ruled by anxiety. 😔
Hard thing #1:
Accept that they are worthy of investing in themselves, and creating a better life.
Hard thing #2:
Make positive changes in their life.
I know that if you’ve read this far, you’re different. You’ve got what it takes to overcome health anxiety naturally… but just in case you’re tempted to use any of the excuses listed below, I created a self-help guide to help you show anxiety who’s boss. 👊🏼
Self-help guide to choosing a healthy life, free of anxiety.
Excuse #1: “I don’t have time.” 😔
You have 168 hours per week (24 hours/day x 7 days/week ) - just like the students who chose to enrol.
The only difference is that you decided that other things are more important than improving your life.
I get it. There’s always a hundred things pulling at our attention - some more worthwhile (like self-care, partners, kids, friends, loved ones, work, school, chores) than others (like Netflix, Facebook and Snapchat)… and time is the one thing in this world we cannot make more of.
But like all challenges worth overcoming in life, the solution lies in a possibilities list.
Here are some ideas to get your possibilities list started:
Attend your video coaching sessions during your lunch break. If your lunch break is at another time, move it. If you really can’t move it, attend the video replays and send me your questions by email.
Take time off work or school to focus on overcoming health anxiety. (I did!) Talk to your doctor about whether (s)he’ll support your decision. (Mine did!)
Ask your partner for some free time to dedicate to self-care - or better yet, just take it. It’s your time, not theirs.
Get up earlier, or stay up later, to do the work.
Ask a friend or loved one to watch the kids for a few hours a week, for the next six weeks.
I can go on and on. A solution exists, you just have to decide you are worthy and choose it.
Excuse #2: “I can’t afford it.” 😔
Like time, you’ve decided that spending it on other things is more important than investing in you, your health, and happiness.
Unlike time, money is something you can make more of… and wouldn’t it be easier to make if you were living your healthiest, happiest, most productive life, with more energy, creativity and focus than ever? Of course you would.
Truth is, health anxiety is already costing you wayyyyyy more than you imagine… and it’ll continue to cost you money, time, energy, experiences, opportunities, relationships, not to mention your health, and more - until you decide enough is enough.
Again, create a possibilities list, pick one, and if it doesn’t work, pick another.
Fortunately, you’ve got two ways to make enrolling more affordable: Earn more money, and spend less money. Here are some ideas to get your possibilities list started:
Earn more money
Pick up an extra few shifts or overtime hours at work.
Pick something you’re good at, but others aren’t, (it could be anything!) and offer your services on a freelance website (such as Fiverr.com).
Call a family member or loved one with a business and see what extra help they need.
Post on social media - something like “Hi friends, I’m looking to earn $399 in the next 6 weeks so I can become the healthier than I’ve ever been. What can I do for you?”
Ask a family member or loved one to sponsor you or loan you the money.
Start a GoFundMe.
Spend less money
Carpool to work or school for a while.
Unsubscribe from TV channels you don’t watch.
Eat out less often (and maybe get a head-start on cleaning up your diet in the process!).
Wait until next year to buy that new outfit or gadget.
You get the idea. Create your possibilities list, pick one, and if it doesn’t work, pick another, and repeat until you’ve got the money you need to invest in YOU.
Excuse #3: “Maybe I don’t have health anxiety after all; maybe I have [insert name of some other anxiety disorder]” 😔
Sometimes, even when the solution’s staring us in the face, we still come up with excuses for not doing the hard things. I did!
Truth is, it doesn’t matter what you call your anxiety disorder because:
There’s only one cause, and it’s the same for everyone, and every type of anxiety disorder: An unhealthy relationship between the subconscious (irrational) and conscious (rational) mind.
There’s only one biochemical response that causes anxiety (and its symptoms) to manifest.
Anxiety will always manifest in multiple ways, in multiple aspects of life. In short, it generalizes.
Call it health anxiety, generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety, OCD, or whatever you like… the cause is the same, the thinking traps you fall into are the same, the cycle of negative thoughts, feelings, sensations and behaviours is the same, and what you must do to overcome it is the same.
I built this program for people challenged by health anxiety - but no matter what label you put on your anxiety disorder, it’ll help you.
Excuse #4: “I need to wait until I get my test results.” 😔
This one really sends me into orbit. 🚀 (Disclaimer: I used to make this excuse myself.)
All it does is keep you stuck in the negative cycle of health anxiety… yet I see people make this excuse again and again.
Here’s the truth: Your tests results, no matter what they are, have zero influence over what you must do now to overcome and heal from health anxiety.
To think otherwise is to unwittingly delay healing, and cost you more.
Think of it this way:
Imagine you had a toothache, and it hurt so bad that it caused you to develop a headache. Ignoring the toothache, you went to your doctor for help with your headache. Doctor visit after doctor visit, the headache persisted, until the doctor finally ordered an MRI of your head to rule out anything serious. You wait weeks, or months, to get your MRI, then wait days or weeks to get your results. All this time, your toothache is getting worse… but no matter what the result of your MRI, you still need to go see a dentist and get a filling, root canal, or whatever, to heal your toothache. This fact simply will not change, and healing health anxiety is no different. It’s not about the symptoms… and the more you believe it is, the deeper the hole you’ll dig, and the harder and more costly it’ll be for you to learn to climb your way out.
Are you with me?
Excuse #5: “I’m not certain it’ll help me.” 😔
I’ll let you in on a secret: Neither am I, because there’s no such thing as 100% certainty of anything. To believe otherwise is an illusion.
Yes, the approach I teach helped me during my 90-day complete health anxiety recovery.
Yes, the approach helped other 1-1 (private) coaching students whose lives are back, better than ever.
Yes, I use the exact same approach in the Group Coaching program.
So while I’m extremely confident this program will help you - one can never be 100% certain.
What I am 100% certain of, however, is that you will not overcome health anxiety by continuing to do what you’ve been doing - which clearly isn’t working for you.
When it comes to anxiety - or anything else worthwhile achieving in life - action always outperforms inaction.
The best time to take action is yesterday, but the second-best time is now.
Are you ready to choose a healthy life, free of anxiety?
Enrol today before it’s too late.
I’m accepting 20 students into the Overcome Health Anxiety Group Coaching program, which runs from March 18 - April 28, 2019.
Enrolment closes March 15, 2019 at 9:00pm (Pacific Time) - or when all 20 spots are taken - whichever comes first.
