Sweaty palms. Pounding heartbeat. Dry mouth.

If these symptoms plague you every time you have to speak in front of a group of people – no matter how big or small – you are probably experiencing public speaking anxiety.

While public speaking anxiety (technically known as glossophobia) is not a life-threatening illness, it can certainly have a major impact on your ability to perform your job and make a strong impression on your colleagues. Regardless of how knowledgeable you are about the topic at hand, anxiety can rob you of your composure, leaving you shaking, dizzy, and feeling downright sick when in front of a crowd.

Nearly 75% of people experience public speaking anxiety – it’s incredibly common!

If this sounds familiar, know that you are not alone. The National Institute of Mental Health reports that nearly 75% of people experience public speaking anxiety. You may find yourself dreading upcoming presentations, or even losing sleep over the prospect of having to speak in front of others. If you are a college student, you might have considered dropping certain courses that require presentations in front of the class. But there is no need to let your anxiety control your life – you can have the upper hand.

If you need to take control of your anxiety, you have options – and they are not all medications. To begin, the Mayo Clinic recommends the following tactics to help you proactively manage your anxiety around public speaking:

  • Study up on your topic
  • Organize your information
  • Practice your presentation at home
  • Take time to do some deep breathing
  • Visualize a successful outcome
  • Focus on your topic – not your audience

Many people use medications to treat their glossophobia. These drugs can cause a host of terrifying side effects, including nausea, dizziness, depression, drowsiness, difficulty breathing or swallowing, headache, and confusion – to name just a few.. And even if you don’t experience physical side effects, anti-anxiety medications can cause you to lose your passion and energy, making your presentation flat and devoid of enthusiasm.

But there is a better way to treat your anxiety without compromising the quality of your public speaking. While it does require a prescription, it is not a drug and it has no lasting side effects. In fact, you may even notice that you start to enjoy the things you were formerly anxious about. What is this other option? It’s a medical device called Alpha-Stim.
