Thinking about panic attacks and symptoms!

  • You are not having a heart attack when a panic attack occurs. It feels like it but it won't become a heart attack.
  • You can take control yourself quickly and effectively. Honestly you can do this.
  • People often think they are going mad because no thought preceeds a panic attack. You are certainly not going mad as there is a scientific reason for this.
  • The symptoms are a normal function of the brain because of it's survival programming. Yes this is a normal function of your brain to protect you.

Why does the brain create panic anyway?

It is a commonly held view that panic is created by a part of the brain known as the Limbic system.

Also, the Limbic system is refered to as a reptilian throwback of how our brains were when we were reptiles.

That said and at that time we never spoke or had cognitive language. 

So, knowing that makes sense that this part of the brain processes using filters like sight, hearing, smell, taste and physical touch. 

This is how the brain recieves information from our filtering senses. 

So, this list of things may help you to put logic into your thinking about why and how things happen.

What's the good news, regarding self help?

Initially realise that your brain has been spooked by something around it and this is about basic survival.

This is vitally important: Your brain may have picked up something visually, by smell, by taste or by using hearing or by touch only. 

This may have been a trigger from a past experience or memory connected to what your brain noticed using one of these filters.

It is important to begin to do 7/11 diaphragmatic breathing straight away.

Also, you can do bilateral stimulation to reduce anxiety and stress.

Another alternative is to use meridian 6 point tapping to calm things down.

Additionally this can return the body into homeostasis. Please click the word for an explanation. 

But really its the balanced relaxing state of your body where it stops adrenalin being produced.
