Aug 21, 2008
If you are suffering from panic or anxiety attacks you will be aware of how much they can turn your whole world up-side-down and everyday life becomes very daunting, you will also be aware of the importance of learning to cope with this problem effectively. It is possible by developing ways which are unique to your own condition of keeping the symptoms under control.

There are many ways of treating anxiety attacks so, let us have a look at 4 of the most effective and popular ways:

1. Prescribed Drugs - Treating anxiety attacks with medication is very common. The patient will usually find that the symptoms lessen and attacks happen less frequently. The down side of these drugs is the fact that many have unpleasant side effects, in extreme cases patients have been known to withdraw from any kind of public life, becoming isolated and lonely. Some of these drugs can also become highly addictive making them really only a short term option.

2. Making some significant lifestyle changes can be a relatively simple but very effective way of treating anxiety attacks. By looking closely at the way you live your life and making changes such as ensuring you consume a healthy, well balanced diet, get adequate sleep and take exercise in some form regularly your body can begin to heal itself and get back to a healthy state both physically and mentally. The root cause of anxiety is very often stress which magnifies the condition. The introduction of meditation and relaxation techniques into your daily routine can help in educing stress levels, negative thoughts and the intense but needless worry.

3. The mental anxiety suffered by many patients can be elevated by taking up tai chi, yoga or another form of gentle martial art as these are excellent in helping to calm nerves. Overcoming the anxiety of being in a group for these classes can also be a major achievement. However for those who just cannot yet cope with such situations these techniques can be learned and practice at home using one on the many DVDs available.Hypnotherapy may also be a consideration in treating anxiety attacks. By conditioning the mind the patient is able to face their fears head on and begin to cope with everyday living again.

4. The ancient Chinese often used acupuncture and various herbal remedies for treating anxiety attacks. These methods have been seen to be very effective. As most people are aware acupuncture is fairly commonly used in the Western world today, usually it has to be said to aid people in their quest to loose weight or stop smoking but if you suffer anxiety attacks it is an option worth consideration. Progress can be reasonably fast with the patient often seen to improve after only a few sessions with a good practitioner.

It has to be said that often the best way of treating anxiety attacks are using a combination of the conventional with the alternative therapies. The most important point is that a combination is established which best suites the individual in terms of their condition and their lifestyle.
