It’s almost impossible to describe if you’ve never experienced it.

It’s not like just being extra stressed. A full-blown panic attack completely disables you.

Your mind racing, and it won’t slow down. You feel a sense of extreme vertigo and intense disorientation.

Anxiety attack sufferers often think they accidentally consumed a powerful drug or wonder if they are going crazy. They may even check into the hospital.

Unfortunately, there’s not much even a doctor can do for you in this state – all you can do is wait for it to pass.

During An Attack is Not the Time to Seek Treatment

Taking care of anxiety takes place in your day-to-day life. And it isn’t necessary to take medications either – these are band-aid solutions to deeper problems with your mind and body.

The first thing you should do if you’re experiencing a lot of anxiety for no apparent reason or if you have panic attacks is visit the doctor to run some tests. Because it can sometimes be a warning that you’re developing a health condition.

Seek healing and the anxiety goes away.

Let’s look at some natural ways for curing anxiety, whether it’s caused by medical issues or not.

1. Improve Your Dietshutterstock_160203056

Many modern diets are composed of processed wannabe foods that are horrible for your health. The additives, chemicals, and toxins in these foods can cause internal destruction and throw your hormones out of balance.

Sugar can cause inflammation, raising your cortisol levels, and stimulating substances like coffee are linked to anxiety as well.

Clean up your diet and you clean up your emotional health. This is especially true if you’re overweight or obese.

2. Stop Drinking Alcohol

To put it in simple terms, alcohol is a poison. When you dump a poison in your body, you can expect your body to get stressed out – the anxiety is it’s way of saying “What the heck are you doing?!”

If you’ve ever had those early morning moments of crisis in bed with a hangover, your heart racing as a feeling of despair overcomes you, you know how it works. Try cutting back on your drinking or stopping completely, and you’ll be amazed at how serene you become.

3. Simplify Your Life

Maybe you’re stressed out and anxious because your life is stressful. Are you running on a lack of sleep most mornings? Are you struggling to get too much done with too little time? Do you have toxic relationships?

We always have a choice, even if it doesn’t feel that way.

Learn to say no. Stop trying to be superhuman and slow to a more relaxing pace.

Your cortisol levels will thank you. You’ll become a happier person.

4. Start an Exercise Programshutterstock_108047786

I can’t stress enough how much exercise can do to put your hormones and your emotions back into balance. It’s crazy how we put off working out for so long, yet when we finally drag ourselves into the gym, we feel euphoric almost immediately, at least for a short time.

Over time, these benefits only increase. Your anxiety may be telling you that the machine needs some tuning.

5. Kava

Don’t seek supplemental help at the expense of the lifestyle changes discussed above, but there are some powerful options worth consideration. One is Kava, a water-soluble plant extract that has been embraced in the Pacific Islands for centuries. It’s ability to lower anxiety and help with depression is backed by studies.

Sales went down for Kava when it was linked to liver damage and liver failure around 2002, but many experts claim the problem is associated with supplements that use the entire plant instead of just the root. More recent and thorough studies have since proven kava to be a safe and effective remedy for anxiety and relieving stress.

6. Phenibut

Another natural supplement helpful with curbing anxiety is Phenibut, which is known for having a calming, mood-enhancing effect and has even been used to treat post-traumatic stress, stuttering, and stress-related insomnia.

Phenibut was originally created to help astronauts manage stress in outer space as it’s one of the only substances shown to relieve anxiety without impairing cognitive abilities. It’s a derivative of an inhibitory neurotransmitter called y-aminobutryic acid that occurs naturally in your brain.

7. Meditation

Meditation doesn’t have to be fancy – start experimenting with five minutes in the morning before you start your day, and you can increase your times as you get better.

Here’s the Thing.

When you experience anxiety, it’s your body’s way of warning you that something is amiss in your life. It’s a sign that something needs to change – in your life or your physical body.

Much like your nerves come alive when you stick your hand in a fire, motivating you to pull it out before permanent damage occurs.

When your body sends a warning, it’s always a good idea to listen.

Now there is a powerful 8th natural way to relieve anxiety. A little-known technique so efficient at relaxing the body, it’s been shown to lower blood pressure by up to 22%. If you’re interested, click over to the next page and check it out.
