|Five Natural Remedies for Panic Attacks|
Five Natural Remedies for Panic Attacks by Emi Scriber
If you've ever had a panic attack, the experience is not a very pleasant one. The good news is, there are quite a few natural remedies for panic attacks that are successfully used by many and may help you manage, if not completely eliminate, your panic attacks all together.
***Relaxation Breathing Techniques***
More than just some new age hype, learning to control the breath is an ancient method of calming the nerves, re oxygenating the circulatory system, and elevating the mind. The commonly used phrase, "just breathe" is used for a reason. Often times one of the most tell tale signs of anxiety or an oncoming attack can be first noticed in the breath, and it can also be stopped by learning simple breathing techniques in a meditation class, a yoga class, or a manual created specifically for managing panic attacks.
***Herbal Tinctures and Teas***
Although some have found that prescription medicines may assist with eliminating panic attacks, many others have found that the risks of side affects are not worth it for them. Therefore, they try herbal remedies such as valerian, chamomile, passion flower, California poppy, lemon balm, or kava kava. The effects of natural remedies vary widely.
Keep in mind, that when using natural remedies for panic attacks some people can relax with, say for instance, a small cup of chamomile tea, someone else may need a much more potent herb, or even a combination of several to get the right mix that neither over or under sedates them.
Homeopathic remedies are additional natural remedies for panic attacks, and they use dilutions of some herb or flower essence. They are another resource to try. For example Bach Flower Remedies, a variety of homeopathic solutions created from flower essences includes one specific remedy called the Rescue Remedy.
The rescue remedy is create specifically for those in the midst of trauma and any type of anxiety type of experience.
Other remedies (unrelated to Bach Flower Remedies) include "Kali phos 6x" which is a nerve tonic. It is said to be helpful in the case of a rundown nervous system due to worry or excitement.
There is a reason that ancient wisdom is ancient! Be open to Eastern healing techniques, as many of them are perfectly suited for calming the whole being. If the idea of acupuncture is too scary, consider a system of tapping on the various meridian points - as in Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT). This system has allowed thousands of people to not only move toward managing panic attacks, but to actually eliminating them for good. The best thing about this system is that it can be done in 5 or 10 minutes, and you can learn to do it for free!
***Change of Mind***
Believe it or not the power of our thoughts, beliefs, and ideas play a major role in our life experiences. In addition to the powerful mental benefits of meditation and EFT on clearing, healing and relaxing the mind, other systems like "The Work" by Byron Katie, and hypnosis techniques can also have a powerful impact on managing panic attacks and creating a peaceful world within.
While Byron Katie's Work, allows you to release stressful thoughts without having to experience trauma, hypnosis allows you to gently relax into a state of being that helps you to receive a more desirable thought suggestion.
Because everyone is different, not only will some ideas for managing panic attacks work better, or more quickly for some, different folks will gravitate towards different solutions.
The great thing about it is, you deserve to be peaceful, calm, and vibrant. By focusing on this truth, the right direction will at some point be found.
