3 Ways to Manage Panic Attacks
Published: 10/26/2009

Frequent panic attacks – episodes of severe anxiety that last for 10 minutes or more, and occur for no obvious reason – affect many people. While drugs are commonly prescribed to curb the attacks, other natural ways of treating the condition may be just as beneficial. If you or a loved one has panic attacks, try to relax and go with the flow when an attack occurs:

  1. Train yourself to stay in the moment – don’t think about what will happen next.
  2. Try cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT). These interactive sessions have been shown to be as effective as some medications in preventing panic attacks. Contact a therapist for more information.
  3. Practice breathing exercises. They can help to relax you, and can help prevent hyperventilation (or holding your breath) during an attack.
