What can I use to prevent severe anxiety attacks from happening?

Starting to suffer from severe anxiety attacks. What can I use to prevent them from happening?

P. S. Marijuana isn't something I can or would want to use daily, seeing as how I'm a preschool teacher.

Healthy fats are linked to brain health Increase those. Also consider a whole food detox. Toxic build up can contribute to anxiety and other ailments. I've helped several friends go natural & ditch their meds just by dietary changes

What's a good food detox? I've been meaning to research just haven't had the time "/

Sammi Lopez 3 years

I can send you some info on what I recommend to friends and clients. It is basically a 30 day program designed around increasing plant based whole foods and eliminating inflammatory foods

Elizabeth Callahan 3 years

Please do, I've been eating a lot of fast food no excuses other than my mother being in the hospital and being lazy and not making time for real food.

Get your cortisol levels checked. I also noticed caffeine would make my anxiety 90% worse.

Yes, I also quit caffeine and it helped me a lot. So much that I haven't had it in years!

I'd highly suggest visiting your local herbalist! I did that when I no longer wanted to only treat my anxiety with weed.

Here are some herbs that I've found helpful:

Lemon balm
Kava Kava (herbalist gave me a tincture of this mixed with rose to take for instant relief from panic attacks)
Lavender
Blue vervain
Licorice
Passion flower
Milky oats + oatmeal
Skullcap

There are many more but you have to see what herbs you resonate with. But most calming tea blends on the market have a good amount of these in them.

I've also found pranayama (yogic breathing exercises) incredibly helpful. I'm sure there are instructional videos on YouTube. I do pranayama anytime I start feeling a panic attack coming on or my heart rate go up and it saves me every time.

Best of luck!

I found skullcap helpful during an anxiety attack. It kind of worked like a natural xanax (haven't taken one but it's what I would assume it would be like) it calmed me down and actually made me sleepy

Aubry Christensen 3 years

I'm glad it was helpful and you bring up a good point -- some of these herbs can make you sleepy. That's why I really like lemon balm because it's a gentle stimulant that relaxes you at the same time

Natural grocers has something called Happy Camper. I think it has kava kava in it along with some other things. It really works. They have all kinds of other things there as well.

Do you mind telling us what EO's. Thanks.

Connie Prather 3 years

I use a calming blend and a balancing blend from doterra but I am sure other companies have something very similar. The names of the blends specifically I use are Serenity and Balance. Changed my life.

Laura Bassett 3 years

Let it Go by Plant Therapy is another good one, as is Anxiety Ease by Eden's Garden. You can get either of those through Amazon, if you want to try a less expensive version and see how it works for you.

essential oils, give up the dairy and the grains, bone broth, probiotics, magnesium .

I started taking d3, magnesium, cod liver oil, exercise and positive thinking. Although it's not always perfect I have a much different outlook now! I use to do St. John's wort too which did help

check out EFT, aka tapping.

It's a very simply thing you can do any place any time. You basically tap along accupressure points along the upper body as you talk about what is concerning you. It retrains the stress response in the amygdala in the brain and relieves whatever is going on.

Since you have sever anxiety I would find a professional to teach it to you because big feelings may come up. But you can still teach it to yourself easily - Nick Ortner has a popular page The Tapping Solution, and Dr. Mercola has a tutorial on his website too.

And if you do it regularly, it can over time cause your anxiety to diminish and eventually go away.

have you tried. Lithium orate.. İts not the same product people think of when you think of lithium for mental health issues technically.. This is a very low dose.. And its all natural and comes from a different part of the plant... İt keeps my anxiety down.. Amazing.. İ bought mine in drops but they have pills too.. İ take 5mg its safe and effective

Nicole Harding

I haven't tried anything yet! I suffered from it as a young teen and eventually just got past the worst of it after multiple failed doctor and therapy attempts, but now that I'm older it's back with vengeance!

We have used this too. It can help b12 absorption. When b12 is deficient it can cause anxiety and depression.

I just started taking vitamin D as well as natural calm magnesium and vitaminc. I'm also starting with a counselor in a week. Just to talk about things and see if that helps. The supplements already seem to be helping. Also diffusing orange eo. Helps me too!

Diet - Remove gluten, dairy, soy. Probiotics and healing the gut for deep healing. Supplements that could help in the process Methylated B vitmains, High Omega 3's, 5-HTP, SAM-e, Neural Balance with Anandanol, Hempanol, and Aconitum Napellus is great for sudden onset attacks. Biggest thing is healing the gut as that is where over 75% of your body's serotonin is produced!

It's important to take omega 3 and not a combo of 3,6, and 9 so watch the labels. They have to be in balance and most people have way higher levels of 6 and 9 in their diets and never enough 3.

Aubry Christensen 3 years

Aubry Christensen Did not know that... Thanks. I was recently given just the Omega 3's!

Rose Bryan 3 years

After having panic attacks from age 19-32 and going to specialist after specialist. I finally found an acupuncturist who said it simple: "get off birth control, stop eating dairy, gluten and sugars" it took me a year. But I do t have attacks anymore. Oh and add magnesium.

Andrea Kaiser

Do you mean you that you do not have attacks anymore, correct? But yes... All that stuff, so compromising!

Rose Bryan 3 years

Correct, I do not have them once my hormones regulated back to normal from getting off the birth control and allowing my organs to work properly without diary/mucus build up.
