Beating Anxiety and Panic Attacks - Five Tips for Success

Anxiety and panic attacks are far more common than people think, and millions of people from all walks of life suffer from them, sometimes without being diagnosed or naming them. Not that this diagnosis is so important, because regular treatment is not very effective, and classifying things this way, the obsession of western medical medicine, can actually lead to a very narrow view of 'healing'. Let's see how the Ayurvedic and holistic approach might unlock some powerful solutions, one of which might be the cause of shock loss to anxiety and panic!

I can confirm, from personal experience, how scary and debilitating anxiety and panic attacks are. In my youth, I experienced a year or two of all anxiety and panic, mostly because of experimenting with materials that I couldn't experiment with, I'm sure. However, if the inclination to the episode exists in our physiology, all sorts of things can expose it and repel the scary cycle and panic, which, if we know how to manage it, can be a lifelong struggle.

Common triggers include stress, fatigue, drugs (prescription and recreation), depression, poor physical health, disordered lifestyle, poor diet, poor personal relationships, and more ...

The principle of ayurveda is very useful here, as Ayurveda provides a completely different view of the situation, seeing it as one of the three doshas rather than a disease. Mental reductions such as panic and anxiety come under what Ayurveda would classify as' 'vata imbalance'; Vata is one of the three doshas (vata, pitta and kapha) that covers our body type, imbalance, food, season and more - basically the whole creation, and provides a great foundation for understanding how to bring things back.

Here are five ways we can bring vata dosha back to balance ...

1. Perhaps most important is to meditate. Not only does this calm the mind and thus reduce panic and anxiety, but it also nourishes the body with a variety of endorphins that immediately combat any vascular imbalance.

2. Get regular exercise. Nothing is taxed, as this can interfere with more vata, but it certainly gets the body active to start releasing all energy and getting toxins out. Ayurvedic three-phase exercises, which keep your heart rate low and work out effortlessly, and which can be used for any sport / exercise, are very important in reducing vats. Yoga is great, but the best is a good Somatic Movement education program. These gentle, effortless exercises are designed to get the whole system working again, and they can be done by people of all ages and abilities.

3. Routine and diet. One of the main ways to deal with vata dosha is with an unhealthy lifestyle and diet. I know it's hard to motivate yourself in times of stress and panic, but this may be the key to recovery, so please try - and keep going, as success takes time. Follow the diet to reduce your diet and avoid skipping meals. Get some sleep at 10pm and set a daily routine for as long as you can. Lack of regular and irregular meal times is guaranteed to affect your weight.

4. Sleep well. I know this is easier said than done, especially under high pressure, but this is a good tip for reducing vata ... Before going to bed, get an abhyanga, or Ayurvedic massage. Take some warm sesame oil and massage your entire body, including your feet and scalp. Then take a hot bath and sleep. You will be amazed at how these simple techniques can greatly increase your chances of a good night's sleep.

5. Here is the controversy, and my own technique, but one that may take away all the fear of panic attacks in one hit, as it did with me ... All four of the other suggestions, as important as they are, represent a long-term solution to offset body to create an environment where panic attacks do not occur. However, what can you do when you're in the middle of one? Easy ... SURRENDER! Panic attacks and spring anxiety from unreasonable patterns of thought, 'fear'. Once again we stand there thinking of our own business, then the horrible shock / terror / horror / death that unfolds before us and we panic, try to fight it down and lose ourselves forever. One secret here though - the gap is NOT there! Next time don't fight the gap - throw yourself into it. The first time it takes a lot of courage, but when you throw yourself into the abyss instead of against it, what do you think? Yes, it's gone! Being able to risk an attack in a place like this can be a huge step in losing their fear forever.
