Although most people experience anxiety sometimes, some of us seem to suffer from excessive fear and worry. Some of the typical symptoms of an anxiety attack are: rapid heart beating, sweating, dizziness, sleeping problems, and fearful thoughts. During an attack you may feel that you have totally lost control and you are going crazy.
Due to excess adrenaline release, you may feel that your heart is going to explode.
Most people turn to medication in order to combat this disorder, but unfortunately drugs have many dangerous side-effects and are not always effective. In fact, over time they lose their effectiveness and you will have to increase the dosage or change medications.
Even when they do work, the only thing they can do is to reduce the amount of times you have an attack and somewhat decrease the intensity. There is also the danger of becoming dependent on pills in order to live a normal life.
The good news is that there are actually ways to get rid of anxiety naturally without taking and kind of medication:
- Control your thoughts: you first must identify what triggers your panic attacks and eliminate it from your environment. It could be a sound, a picture or a smell. It seems that for some reason, your brain sees a threat where there is actually none. In case you can’t really identify or get rid of the triggers, then you need to train your brain so as to eliminate bad thoughts. Be observant of every thought that comes in and out of your mind. Try to focus on something positive and don’t let your attention wander.
- Change your diet: changing the way you eat can be helpful in relieving the symptoms of the attacks, even though it can’t actually cure this condition. Here are a few foods you need to stay away from: coffee because it causes nervousness, alcohol and sugar due to its effect in insulin levels that can lead to mood swings.
This condition can adversely affect your social life and cause you extreme suffering. Modern medications will only leave you feeling sluggish and lethargic. Fortunately, there is a completely natural way you can use that has no side-effects.
