How to Stop Anxiety Attacks Without Medication

Anxiety Attacks are horrifying! But you can stop them. And you can prevent them without medication. Here, you’ll discover what triggers anxiety attacks and how to stop them quite naturally.

Typically, doctors prescribe medication such as anti-depressants, tranquilizers and even beta-blockers for anxiety And Anxiety Attacks. The anti-depressants for managing your ‘mood’, tranquilizers for ‘calming’ you, and, beta-blockers to help manage some of the Physical Symptoms Of Anxiety.

And although drug-based medication can help some people, not all Anxiety Sufferers find them beneficial, not least because of their potentially serious side effects, which include dependency issues. Which is why people are increasingly — perhaps this is you — seeking out natural ways to Treat Anxiety, without recourse to drugs.

But, in order to best understand just how Natural Remedies For Anxiety can work for you, and, the critical key needed to unlock your cure, you first need to understand how anxiety attacks can be triggered…

We need to go back hundreds of thousands of years, and picture our forefathers living and surviving in a very wild, hostile environment; where it definitely was the ‘survival of the fittest.’ And the human body, being something quite miraculous, was pre-equipped (and still is) to give the individual the greatest possible chance to survive and prosper.

For example, at the very ‘whiff’ of danger to the body, chemical reactions were triggered in the brain that produced split-second physical and emotional responses in the body. These gave the person under threat the greatly enhanced capacity to fight an enemy or wild animal, or, to run away to safety. This is why we call this the body’s ‘fight or flight’ response.

But how does all that relate to today, I hear you ask? Well, although the chances are that you aren’t going to be confronted by a pack of wild animals or a neighbouring tribe, looking to tear you limb from limb (lol), all your body needs to be faced with is the ‘perception’ that you are in danger. You see, the human body really is marvelous; it doesn’t take any chances with your life. If there is even a sense of danger, it doesn’t wait around to check and confirm it, it takes no chances and just triggers its fight or flight response!

So, in today’s society, what can possibly ‘trick’ the mind into thinking that you are in danger when you definitely aren’t?…

If you suffer from anxiety attacks then you already have higher than (your) normal levels of Stress And Anxiety. There could be a number of reasons for this, but the result is that you constantly worry, stress and even obsess on a daily basis. And probably about things that you would have taken in your stride in the past.

Now, in your vulnerable state, all it takes is for your stress / anxiety to rise even more, due to a stressful event or situation, such as sitting (or studying for) an exam, being stuck in traffic, shopping in a very crowded supermarket, etc. The outcome is that your overall anxiety levels are increased dramatically enough to ‘fool’ your mind into believing that you’re under threat, and so the fight or flight response is triggered.

The changes that that causes all over your body (e.g. blood pressure, heart rate, muscle enhancement, vision enhancement, etc.) leads to you experiencing some or all of the following Symptoms; racing heart, tightness across your chest, nausea, tingling feeling in your extremities, dizziness / wooziness, irregular breathing, a feeling of not being connected to reality / being detached, a feeling that you are about to die even, etc. You are having a horrifying Anxiety Attack!

Now, to Stop Anxiety Attacks, most people try to eliminate their General Anxiety first. And there are many natural remedies and therapies to help you do this, e.g. hypnosis, psychotherapy, counselling, meditation, yoga, acupuncture, deep breathing exercises, visualization techniques, music therapy, etc.

But the key to unlocking the real mystery of how to Stop Panic Attacks is to recognise that you have a real fear of having more anxiety attacks. You see, once having suffered the horrifying symptoms, you clearly never want to repeat that experience. So you end up with a conscious or unconscious ‘fear’ of having one. And guess what? This very fear (being anxiety) builds up on your already high anxiety levels and triggers another Anxiety Attack!

So, rather than working on your General Anxiety first (with your fear of anxiety attacks always in the background), you need to get rid of your fear and so break out of this vicious cycle of; anxiety >> anxiety attack >> fear >> more anxiety >> another anxiety attack >> more fear >> etc. Then, once having banished your fear of attacks, which will help prevent further attacks, you can then work on effectively eliminating your general anxiety.

And, the first stage in this process, is to realize that your anxiety attacks can’t harm you. As you now know, they are just the symptoms of a perceived threat that doesn’t even exist. The next step is to learn and utilize a technique to help you eliminate your fear of anxiety attacks.
