Advice from a North York Chiropractic Clinic: 4 Natural Ways to Zap Your Panic Attacks

If you’ve been keeping an eye on the news, odds are that you’ve noticed there’s quite a bit of anxiety floating around. Whether it’s politics, family, or work, we all feel anxiety to some degree. Sometimes, large waves of anxiety can hit someone all at once, very suddenly becoming overwhelming and unbearable. These are panic attacks, and they’re fairly common.

This week, we at your friendly neighbourhood North York Chiropractic Clinic have decided to offer the more panic-prone of our readers 4 natural, drug-free ways to reduce both the likelihood and severity of your panic attacks.

1.      Exercise

Anxiety affects the body just as much as it affects the mind. It’s this physical reaction causes stress and anxiety to create tension headaches and physical fatigue.

Thankfully, this link works both ways. Burning calories through intensive exercise will also burn through stress and anxiety, while providing the added benefit of natural endorphins and a sense of satisfaction that comes from bettering yourself.

2.      Psychotherapy

There is a completely misleading stigma associated with therapy. The fact of the matter is that, in cases of extreme stress, therapy can help you to identify and work through your sources of anxiety, particularly if you aren’t sure what the major cause of your anxiety is, or when your anxiety stems from a traumatic event.

3.      Yoga/Meditation

While it’s not a ‘magic bullet’ that will cure you, yoga and meditation can be a combination of physical and psychological exercise. The activity helps you to ‘burn through stress’, while the relaxation and introspection can help you to get a better handle on the root causes of your anxieties.

4.      North York Chiropractic Treatment

Subluxations and other dysfunctions of your neurological system can greatly worsen the physical effects that anxiety has upon your body. Through regular adjustments, we can help you to improve its functionality, eliminating a number of common causes for anxiety such as constant pain, disturbed sleep, and so on, while improving your body’s ability to manifest the positive changes from the above methods.
