A lot of people ask me, can you really cure panic attacks without medication?
I am always confident in my response with a resounding yes! But most people, especially those who suffer from panic attacks and extreme bouts of social anxiety, are skeptical. So let me explain why this is possible…
While there really isn’t a firm definition on what exactly causes a panic attack, I can tell you from my very own experiences as well as many others’ that I’ve met and spoke with over the years that the true cause is in how you think.
When you begin to experience severe anxiety problems such as panic attacks, the cause is psychological in nature. Anxiety is not a disease where one day you physically develop a tumor and bam – you’re sick. No… when it comes to anxiety there are a number of factors that can come together and cause you some huge problems.
Stress (who doesn’t have it), lack of physical activity and exercise, having a pessimistic or depressed attitude and outlook on life, poor diet, not staying properly hydrated, not taking breaks and giving yourself a chance to slow down, laziness and inactivity, isolation, avoidance, low self-confidence and over-indulging in alcohol – all can be HUGE reasons you’re experiencing panic attacks and problems with anxiety.
The good news is all of these things can be overcome naturally, without the need for a magic pill that doesn’t work anyway. Slowly adapting to new ways of thinking and living will forever alter your mindset and quality of life.
Facing and overcoming your fears will boost your self-confidence and prove to yourself that you truly can do anything, and that you are only limited by your thoughts. You will learn to be more in tune with your body and take better care of it, and will become comfortable in silence and less dependent on mind-altering substances such as pills or alcohol.
Making these powerful changes in your life and adapting a new way of thinking are not a temporary fix that will go away. Instead, your life will be forever changed for the better and you will free yourself from the shackles of anxiety and living in a state of fear and constant worry. This is no quick fix, this will last and is not simply a means of coping with anxiety in your life.
So if you want to cure panic attacks in your life, the first step is to understand and accept that you have the power to do this. Next, learn all you can about how to apply all of these changes I’ve discussed in this post. Check out the resources on this website and in my anxiety book.
