Lots! Sleep well, eat well, exercise regularly, tai chi, meditation therapy and medications.
Heart knows. When we walk away from the path we are meant to the soul becomes agitated - ask your heart when you are waking up in the morning - what does my heart wants? Take trptophan supplements at night.
Panic. Please refer to my answer above for details.
Many options. Regular exercise, meditation, and spiritual activities have been shown help for some. Good health practices may help including good sleep, nutrition, good social support, and avoidance of alcohol, niotine or other substances. Finally use of behavioral activation which is engagement in pleasurable activities can help, and there are self help anxiety workbooks that can b bought.
This anxiety and panic attacks are taking over my life. Does anyone know of self help? Xanax (alprazolam) does not help it. I want to beat this on my own wo meds
ClinicalPsychologist. Cognitive behavior therapy by psychologist. Behavior modification. Life-style counseling. Progressive relaxation. Guided imagery. Hypnosis (my favorite) biofeedback rec. See a clinical psychologist.
Self help. Talk about feelings ; address problems. Don't avoid them. Aim for 7.5 - 8 hours of sleep/ night. Daily physical activity is optimal in a green space. Eat healthfully. Cut out junk carbs, caffeine ; alcohol (or moderate). Try qi gong, tai chi, acupuncture, acupressure, homeopathy, meditation, yoga, exercise program, deep breathing exercises or progressive muscle relaxation. Please don't give up >.
Comprehensive Exam. Panic and anxiety are not due to panic disorder until other possibilities are carefully "ruled-out". It is vital you see a very competent psychiatrist for a comprehensive evaluation (history, exam, labs) before any diagnosis and treatment options are discussed. Medications can be helpful if it is panic disorder, and cognitive-behavior therapy is also helpful. Best wishes!
I'ma big fan of that. Hi, a lot of anxiety and panic depends upon what's triggering these feelings. One thing that patients have found helpful is paying close attention to precipitating factors, slow breathing during the anxiety, and attention to their thoughts in order to control the feelings. Keeping in mind that thoughts often =feelings, and that feelings do not=catastrophe. There's more, but I hope this helps.
