The Cause of Panic Attacks What Most Doctors Dont Even Know!


Visitors: 306

The cause of panic attacks is varied, however their are some very common imbalances that most people fall prey to. And, there are simple steps that anyone can take to manage their panic levels until they reach zero. How do I know that? I was the worst panic attack sufferer until I learned how to control them, I watched others learn to control them as well.

If you're eating a poor diet, you're unbalanced and your going to experience consequences not only to your body but also to your brain. Here are some things you can do to balance yourself. Eat more protein. Why? In our modern diets we eat too much starchy carbohydrate at the expense of protein causing neurotransmitter imbalances. Protein is the stuff neurotransmitters are made from, so eat your meat, fish, eggs, and beans. If your a vegetarian go for soy. Protein powder is a wonderful supplement that everyone can be using. I suggest one gram per pound of bodyweight per day. You can lower this amount once you feel better.

In addition to more protein, more fruits and vegetables are usually needed. The reason being that these foods contain alkaline minerals which we need to calm our nervous system. Our typical diets are very wheat, dairy, and meat heavy, all of which contribute to an acidic body, we are out of balance. Bet you probably didn't know this was a cause of panic attacks, this information is quietly getting out but it has been underground for a long time.

Exercising is known to be good for your body, but did you know that it's also vital for your brain health? Panic attacks are basically a brain imbalance, and exercise will increase blood flow to the brain increasing flow to the parts of the brain which are under utilized. This is so important. Not only that but when you exercise complex hormonal changes take place, burning your stress hormones and increasing hormones which will make you calmer. I don't care what type of exercise you take up, but do something. Make time, it's so worth it!

Lastly, the root cause of panic attacks can be treated by training your brain to move activity from an overheating part of the brain to an under activated part. When you experience a panic attack, what's going on is your midbrain is firing too much and your forebrain isn't firing enough. It sounds complicated, but anyone can learn this technique . The technique is the main facet of a program called Panic Away, which I have learned and implemented whenever I started to feel a panic attack coming on. It just turns it off and you feel like your old self again.

It may seem like a lot, but I know you can do this stuff. If getting your life back and getting rid of panic attacks is your goal, you'll realize that making these easy steps is well worth the effort.
