How You Can Stop Panic Attacks Ruining Your Life

 by John Cielo


New research tells us that 1 in 75 people around the world will have at least one panic attack in their lifetime. That's a lot of people! So if you're suffering terrifying panic attacks then you're not alone by any means. They can occur anytime, anywhere, and, without warning, which makes them all the more frightening.

Because they can be truly horrendous experiences for lots of sufferers, many people shy away from areas or people that they feel might cause them to have an attack. The result is that they live unfulfilled lives, always living in a state of fear. Apart from quality life issues, life chances are also impaired.

Although many people will only have one isolated panic attack in their lifetime, many more folks will have multiple attacks. When this happens they are said to have a panic disorder. If this goes on unchecked this can have a big impact, not only in their quality of life, but on their overall well-being. So it's important to address it as quickly as possible, so as not to ruin your life.

At the first signs of a panic attack you need to visit your doctor for a proper diagnosis. This is vital because several of the symptoms of a panic attack are very similar to other problems such as heart attack, etc. But we'll continue in this article with the notion that you have been correctly diagnosed with a panic disorder...

Your doctor will usually prescribe things like antidepressants and tranquilizers to help you. And they can for many, but they do have some pretty dodgy side effects including dependency. And they are working on just adjusting your mood and calming you down. They don't necessarily address the real issue which is your underlying conscious or unconscious fear of having your next attack. And, they can be expensive over the long term.

But there are natural home remedies, without the severe side effects, that can do much the same as the drug-based medications. And it should be no surprise to learn that these are things like homeopathic and herbal remedies, which many anxiety / panic attack sufferers are finding to be pretty effective in terms of controlling mood and stress / anxiety. Of course, there are other things that you can do to help your situation like making some changes to your diet and lifestyle. And there are others like self-help groups and counselling.

However, we can't escape from the single truth that your core fear of having another panic attack is holding back your actual cure. Everything else you do are just coping or managing mechanisms. The problem is that your fear intensifies with every panic attack to the extent that your fear alone can actually trigger one! As you can see this is a vicious cycle of anxiety and panic. Unless you can break this cycle, it will be very difficult to obtain complete relief.

So next, to discover the simple 'ONE MOVE' technique that will eliminate your fear and so break your vicious cycle of anxiety, please go here now and get your old self back again.
