You Can’t Work, You Can’t talk to anyone , at least anyone who would understand, You Just can’t Function!!!!!!!

The first thing you have to understand is that emotions are like waves. They come and go, but they can’t get a long-term grip on you. Every emotion you have, even the awful and crippling fear of dying – Is only temporary. This is something you forget when you are having a panic attack.

Keeping this in mind when a panic attack starts rising its ugly head will help you relax and reduce the intensity of the panic attack.

As a former sufferer of this awful condition, it’s important to me to convince you that hope is out there. There are many ways to overcome anxiety and panic attacks and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.

I do have a list of Natural Ways of you to get rid of the Anxiety in your Life, You don’t want to start taking Pills for this……Doctors are to quick to just write out scrips for pills that will only hide the symptons and does nothing to actually cure the real Issue at hand and the Pills are Highly addictive. So here are some All-Natural Ways of helping with your Anxiety/Panic Attacks!!!!!

 

  • Supplements

    Researchers have found that Magnesium is necessary to dissipate the effects of traumatic stress that can occur from intense episodes of fear or anxiety. Magnesium also helps undo the bad programming from prior anxiety attacks by helping to create new brain response patterns not influenced by fear or anxiety. If you can, get a blood test and check to see if you have a magnesium deficiency. If you do, consider a Natural magnesium supplement. You might be surprised by the results.

    Magnesium supplement

    Omega 3 fatty acids were found to reduce the effects of stress and anxiety by 20 percent. Make sure you get proper omega-3 status by having more fatty fish in your diet, or by taking an organic fish oil supplement. It can reduce anxiety and also systemic inflammation all over your body.

    GABA – GABA is short for gamma-aminobutyric acid, and its role in the body is to calm the firing nerves in our central nervous systems. Long term stress can interfere with production of this neurotransmitter, and you don’t have enough of it, you can experience manic behavior, alcoholism, anxiety and recklessness.  Other symptoms of GABA deficiency include headaches, palpitations and low libido. You may consider trying 500-1000 mg a day of a GABA supplement, or have more food that increases its production: Nuts, bananas, broccoli and spinach, green tea, citrus fruit and rice bran.

  • Limit your Time on the Computer

Of course being on the Computer is a must for some, its their Job, but you should still take time to unwind, stretch it out, take time to relax every hour on the hour. Limit Facebook,

It’s o.k to use Facebook to keep in touch with friends occasionally. But, when Facebook becomes “an addiction” (those of you who are addicted know who they are), it’s difficult to notice how it promotes feelings of loneliness, low self-image, jealousy, insecurity and feelings of inadequacy – All of them leading to anxiety.

  • Acknowledge the Work Related Issues

40 million Americans suffer from anxiety just because they resent their job, hate their job or just work too much (more than 48 hours a week). If you have no idea where your anxiety and panic attacks came from, it’s time to ask yourself if you work too much or just simply hate your job.

I know that some of you will say I’m crazy and these are hard times and work is sometimes hard to replace, but if it gives you anxiety which ruins your life, isn’t it time to look for something else?

Think about it before you dismiss it. It’s closing a door, which could be frightening, but opening a door to a new adventure, to a chance of a happier and a fulfilling life – A life without anxiety.

  • Exercise, Exercise and more and more Exercise

It reduces the stress hormones and elevates those “feel good” hormones mentioned above. At least try to walk (as fast as you can) for a half an hour every day. You won’t believe how amazing you will feel (not to mention how much healthier you will become). When You exercise you actually feel more Energized, You  have that Serotonin that is being released and it gives you a feeling of Happiness, one that keeps Anxiety away. Exercise is a Daily Anxiety Treatment!!!!!!!

  • Relaxation Methods

All of these therapies elevate the levels of your “feel good” hormones – Like Serotonin. They have other amazing benefits to your overall health, which help your body deal with stressful events thus preventing panic attacks.

  • Herbs

3 Herbs For Anxiety

Chamomile.

Chamomile serves as a mild remedy for anxiety. Commonly packaged as a calming agent in herbal tea products, it is also used to be a gentle resource for settling an upset stomach. Chamomile is most helpful after a long, stressful day that has led to particularly distracting but otherwise temporary feelings of anxiety. Chamomile, much like the packaged version suggests, is ideal to take as a tea.

Passionflower.

Discovered by Spanish explorers in South America in the sixteenth century, passionflower provides a slightly stronger remedy for anxiety than chamomile and as a result is often used for slightly more ambitious medicinal interventions like anxiety disorder. It is commonly believed to not only help anxiety but also to help with insomnia, nervous disorders, and blood-related maladies like hypertension. Like chamomile, passionflower can be taken as a tea and the two are sometimes combined along with other herbs for anxiety-related symptoms.

Kava Kava.

This herb, sometimes just referred to as “kava,” is known by many to be effective as a sedative. It can be used for not only anxiety but even to act as a natural anesthetic. Its preparation can be varied, for it can be consumed as a tea, in pill form, or even by chewing on the plant itself. Given its strength, it is advisable to consult an experienced herbalist or medical practitioner before taking it.

Feelings of anxiety can be distracting if not outright debilitating. Anxiety can compromise our sleep, our functionality, and our overall sense of wellbeing. But addressing this condition doesn’t have to be complicated to get results. With herbal remedies like these, finding greater calm is possible.

  • Special Diet

Anxiety and panic have always been considered to be mental conditions, right?

Wrong. New research has found Anxiety and depression may actually originate from the gut. That’s why so many people suffer from both Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Anxiety at the same time. A healthy diet will definitely, and I repeat definitely, dramatically help you overcome anxiety and panic attacks.

We all know what a healthy diet is, so no excuses please. Reduce sugar, fat, meat and dairy as much as you can, and eat much more vegetables and fruits. Get rid of the Toxins, Start eating more Greens , food that flush the Toxins out of your system will help keep your intestines and digestive system clean, reducing the more of the Anxiety that you are experiencing.
