Stop Anxiety Attacks
Some people mistakenly believe that before you can stop anxiety attacks, you have to pinpoint the reason you’re having one in the first place. That’s not always true. You can invest in some anxiety attack treatments that lessen the frequency or eliminate these episodes completely before you discover why they started happening.
It’s not uncommon for people to never gain a true understanding of why they’ve been suffering from panic attacks. Sometimes they just start happening and you can’t tell why. Life seems to be going well. Your relationships are smooth – and suddenly you’re encountering extreme episodes of anxiety.
In order to get to the root of an anxiety attack, you might have to spend months of one on one interaction with a licensed therapist. Instead of waiting for that to happen, why not find a solution that eases the symptoms or helps you put an end to panic attacks for good?
There are prescribed medications and natural (organic) herbal medicines that can alleviate or eliminate the physical symptoms. These include a heartbeat that races, unusual sweating, a sense of doom (or death), dizziness, nausea, and sometimes chest pain.
When you have a desire to stop anxiety attacks, you want it to end now, not three to six months down the road. There are many mental methods and medicinal strategies that can switch off a panic attack in midstream – even prevent it from rearing its ugly head ever again.
Panic attacks can get expensive. Some people rush to the emergency room and rack up huge medical bills having doctors run EKGs, EEGs, blood test and more. Then after hours of testing, they’re told nothing’s wrong with them – yet still have to pay the hefty bill that insurance won’t cover.
Other people start missing work. They get worried that an anxiety attack will happen in front of people, so they get their pay docked, sometimes even lose their jobs – all because they didn’t know how to stop this feeling of being out of control.
Research shows that more than 22 million Americans suffer from panic attacks each year. That’s not even a global number. Because of these numbers, many manufacturers have been creating a wide variety of solutions – because this is a kind of issue where one size won’t fit all.
You have your choice of how to stop anxiety attacks. Therapy, hypnosis, Neuro Linguistic Programming, deep breathing and relaxation exercises, prescription drugs, and herbal remedies are just a few places you can turn to. Don’t let this affliction control your life when there’s help available to you.
Since I have been dealing with anxiety most of my life, but never taken medication, I have made it a point to try out any of the tools I have come across which promise help, and the tools which I have kept because of the routine excellent impact, besides physical exercise, (see the Brain Fitness link above)are Heartmath heart rate variability biofeedback, green tea (l-theanine), and Open Focus, a tool which I combine with my Heartmath heart rate variability training.
Heartmath heart rate variability biofeedback is an excellent feel good tool that is learned, so I can cue the physiology on any given heart beat.
Open Focus as a wonderfully synergistic tool, I believe, with Heartmath heart rate variability biofeedack training.
I use the two together several times a day just to feel good, and refreshed my fevered brain, when it is overwhelmed with parenting, husbanding, counseling, and business issues.
I have been using Heartmath heart rate variability biofeedback and Open Focus with my clients for ten years with excellent results so it is not just me. Check them out at the links below, and thanks.
Very early in my personal growth experience, a wise person taught me to use the phrase "gratitude is the attitude" when I was resentful or afraid and that phrase has helped me feel better tens of thousands of times.
