Natural Panic Attack Cures - 5 Tips

Nov 4, 2007
Panic attacks are sudden episodes of unknown cause that can make you feel that you are dying, suffocating, or having a heart attack. Symptoms can include an accelerated heartbeat, increased levels of perspiration, tightness in the chest, numbness in various parts of your body, and nausea.

Once you have had a panic attack, you will want to do everything in your power to prevent another one. One of the worst feelings in the world is having had a panic attack and being afraid that you are going to have another one: that fear can actually induce another attack in some circumstances.

Many people prefer natural cures for their panic attacks. Here are 5 tips for a natural cure.

Tip #1: Recognize the problem: If you suspect you are having panic attacks, you probably are. Some people who are having panic attacks fear they are going to have a heart attack: rest assured that your attack will not cause a heart attack in and of itself. Panic attacks - while terribly uncomfortable - are generally harmless in terms of long-term health effects. If you are having a panic attack while driving, it is best to pull over and wait it out. Apart from that, the attack should subside in maybe 10 or 20 minutes, and you may feel completely exhausted once the attack is over for up to hours later. Still, rest assured that you will be okay. The key is to recognize you have a problem that could well return unless you get help.

Tip #2: Gain control of your mind: During a panic attack, you might feel like you are going crazy. This is because your body is releasing adrenaline and other chemicals into your bloodstream at much higher rates than usual, causing your mind and body to react in very strange, unexpected ways. Just realize that you indeed are NOT going crazy. Try to take a series of deep, regular breaths. And, remove yourself from the situation which is causing the attack. Getting some fresh air and visiting an area with fewer people and crowds is often an effective way to end an attack.

Tip #3: Have the confidence to know you will make it through: It is important to know that you can get through this and to have the motivation to find a natural cure. Millions of other people have experienced panic attacks, and all of them have survived. However, some people do not do anything between attacks to try to seek help: they just wait for another attack to come. But, mid-attack, almost everyone wishes they had spent some time finding a cure.

Tip #4: Understand what is causing the attacks: People who have panic attacks often spend an inordinate amount of time trying to second-guess what caused their attack. Was it a lack of sleep? Poor diet? Too much caffeine? It is entirely possible than any one of these items could be triggering your attacks, but it is unlikely that it is the sole cause. Panic attacks may be caused by something in one's past such as a traumatic event. Still, for most people, it is difficult to trace the cause of an attack to a single source. Luckily, knowing what originally caused you to be predisposed to having attacks in the first place is not necessary in order t find a natural cure.

Tip #5: Avoid the situations that cause the attacks: Many people who have had more than one panic attack start to see patterns in the situations that cause their attacks. Some people get them when they are feeling claustrophobic or when they are spending time in smoke-filled environments, for example. Whatever it is that seems to spark your attacks: while you are working out a cure, try to avoid those situations.

Panic attacks can be hellish and they can leave you feeling shaky, tired, and frustrated. Educate yourself now on how to prevent future attacks. You will thank yourself later.
