Living with panic attacks and anxiety can be extremely debilitating.
We can all experience anxiety in our lives at some point and this is understandable if we are going through a stressful period. However when panic attacks and anxiety becomes the norm, the effects can leave a lasting imprint shattering our self-confidence and impacting our overall quality of life.
In my Homeopathy practice I see people who suffer from panic attacks and anxiety for many reasons; after life upheavals or past and present traumas, after a loved one has died, after loss of a job, after divorce or from a financial loss.
For some women the panic or anxiety can come on from worry about getting pregnant or becoming a mother, during the menopause, or from feeling overwhelmed with the many demanding roles required of a woman nowadays.
Panic attacks can also be provoked by specific situations such as fear of flying, fear in lifts, agoraphobia, anxiety before exams, public speaking or more general worrying about the future or feeling that something bad is going to happen.
Panic attacks are an overwhelming sense of anxiety and fear. It is anxiety magnified.
It is a situation when you feel as if you are in danger with no way to escape.
They can arise from not being sure if you can cope with what is coming next, anticipating the next stage or not knowing what is around the corner.
Panic attacks can strike without any warning, when relaxing, before sleep or during sleep. They are intense and reach a peak within minutes.
As we each react differently to anxiety and fears, in Homeopathy a remedy is selected for each person’s specific needs and their particular reaction to stress. For example, someone who suffers from panic attacks that started after the death of a loved one with frequent heart palpitations, occurring only at night, will receive a different remedy to someone whose panic attacks are triggered by performance anxiety before an exam with extreme trembling.
In one small study of adults with major depression, social phobia, or panic disorder conducted by Jonathan Davidson, MD, a professor of psychiatry at Duke University, the findings were that 60% of the patients responded favourably to homeopathic treatment. (1.)
“Travelling a 60 minute bus journey to work had become a ‘job in its self’. I started having panic attacks first thing in the morning while waiting and sitting on the bus. The adrenaline was pumping through my arms and my throat would close up when I reached a specific point in my journey. I had to stop getting my express bus and got a longer bus which I knew I could get off of at a minutes notice. A friend recommend visiting a homeopath. I found the whole process with Eileen fantastic and seen a big improvement. After a short time taking the remedy I had an overall calming feeling. My bus journeys returned back to normality.” Debbie, Dublin
“I first visited Eileen 6 months ago and I was suffering very badly with anxiety, panic attacks and maybe depression was setting in too. I’m a single mother, I’ve had a lot of grief and loss of family and friends in my life and I had recently lost my job. I couldn’t eat, sleep, go outside and most days even brushing my teeth was a task….. I can finally see the light at the end of a very long tunnel. I have started going out more, I am sleeping at night and I haven’t had a panic attack in 4 months!! I’ve come such a long way from where I was and I’m so grateful to Eileen”. Ciara, Dublin 12
