Panic attacks are no fun. Luckily there are natural ways to tread anxiety disorders without prescription drugs. Look into some of these natural remedies for panic attacks.

Breath Exercises — The breath has long been used as a means to center the mind and calm the body. Just think of meditation and Yoga. You can use your breath to relax your physical body and quiet your mind. The root physical symptom of a panic attack can be found in the breath. Fast and shallow breathing can escalate to a full-blown panic attack. Learning to take deep, slow breaths will help to derail the train of events that has the potential to lead to a panic attack.

Herbs and Herbally Infused Teas — It is not uncommon for prescription drugs to come with unwelcome side effects. Herbal remedies can be taken to avoid this problem. These often include valerian, chamomile, California poppy, passion flower, kava kava, or lemon balm. It is difficult to know what the precise dose is. People are different and it may take some time to find the right dose for you.

Homeopathy — These are various herbs that have been mixed together to treat panic and anxiety disorders. Bach Flower Remedies are created from a mix of flowers. The Rescue Remedy is used by many to soothe panic and anxiety. Also be on the lookout for “Kali Phos 6x” which is designed to treat the nervous system. Particularly when it is stressed by panic and anxiety.

Alternative Therapies — Have you tired acupuncture? It can help align the body's energy, or chi. Or if that seems a bit too intense, try the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT). You'll get the benefits without the risk of becoming a human pin cushion. It is fast and you can do it in the comfort of you own home.

Everyone is unique, so some of the above remedies for panic attacks may work better for you than others.
