What Causes Panic Attacks The 3 Common Causes


Visitors: 390

Panic attacks are so unpleasant and can seriously interfere with life. But what causes panic attacks? Well, there are 3 main categories which can be linked to the cause. They are: heredity, diet and emotional causes. Let's look at them individually:


This particular cause is difficult to diagnose. But basically the chances are fair that should any member of your family have a history of panic attacks, then so might you. There are of course many cases where this is not true. For example you might have a sister who never has experienced a panic attack and likely never will, while you do.


It is a fairly well known fact that a deficiency of Vitamin B is one of the root causes for many people's panic attacks. Additionally, a general poor diet tends to lead to a more imbalanced state in the body, and this creates a somewhat shaky foundation for your emotions. This can then lead you to lose control of your emotions and bring about a panic attack. Having a healthy diet will lessen the chances of suffering panic attacks.


In life, you may have experienced some traumatic events which have left a lasting impression. When you are reminded in any way of that experience, you can become very stressed and this can induce another panic attack. When you know the emotional causes of your panic attacks, you will more easily be able to seek an effective treatment.
