Is there a natural remedy for panic and anxiety attacks? I seem to hear this kind of question all the time these days.
I mean, who wants to take some pill that may not even help with your anxiety disorder, and at the same time, may cause unwanted side-effects that are worse than the anxiety itself.
There are a lot of tried and true natural remedies to help you handle panic attacks and calm down the symptoms of an anxiety disorder, which I want to tell you about.
Anytime you can do something natural for treating anxiety, you are taking control of your life. This is achieved by not allowing yourself to be caught up in the cycle of taking medication, feeling worse and having to take even more medication.
When looking for a natural remedy for a panic disorder, you may want to try some herbal supplements or stick with all-natural, no medication treatments to suppress your symptoms. Let’s take a look at a few of each of these types of remedies.
There are a few popular herbal remedies that people use to ward off the symptoms of generalized anxiety such as chamomile tea, passion flower and Kava Kava roots made into a kind of a stew/tea.
Using herbal remedies is increasingly popular among anxiety sufferers, but before you try to use these remedies yourself you may want to consider discussing any use of them with your physician first.
Even though these herbs are natural, they can still interfere with any medications you may be taking, which means they can produce unwanted effects. That’s not to say that they are not safe or effective, but it is always a good idea to check with your doctor before doing anything new where your health may be concerned.
People have been using meditation for relaxation purposes for centuries, so it is a method worth checking out if you have anxiety/panic attacks regularly.
The idea behind meditation is that as you learn to think in a positive manner, your negative thoughts will have less of a chance at making their way into your daily routine. As a person with a panic disorder, you already know that the reason that you go from anxious to full-blown panic is because of negative thinking.
If your heart was to speed up a little bit, and you didn’t instantly think that something was wrong with you, then you wouldn’t have anxiety attacks, right? So it stands to reason that if you get in the habit of thinking more positive thoughts, the negative ones will not be so quick to make their way into your mind for a given situation.
