Panic Attacks. Naturopath Solutions.
Do you experience panic attacks? People with panic disorder experience sudden debilitating episodes of intense fear accompanied by heart palpitations or accelerated heart rate along with shortness of breath, trembling and a sense of impending doom. There are a number of natural treatments that work well to treat and prevent panic attacks.
A Naturopath will prescribe specific nutrients and herbs to treat and prevent panic attacks. Specifically, inositol powder and the herb kava kava work well to address panic disorder. Inositol powder works to prevent panic attacks by improving signaling between neurotransmitters and brain cells while kava kava works to treat an acute panic attack by potentiating the effects of gaba, a calming neurotransmitter.
