When you are overcome with panic, try one of these home remedies for panic attacks.
Focus on Breathing
Immediately focus on your breathing. During an attack, you breathe short and shallow breaths. Breathe camly and slowly from your diaphragm. If you're unsure where that is, place your hand below your rib cage and if your hand moves, you are breathing properly from your diaphragm. Keep breathing this way until your breathing becomes regular.
Breathe slowly, counting 1,2,3,4 breathing and 5,6,7,8 breathing out. Do this for a few minutes, only focusing on your breathing to calm yourself.
Use Self Talk
If your doctor has told you that nothing is wrong with you physically, tell yourself that this is not a warning sign of a catastrophe, that it is not a heart attack and that you are well.
Go through the symptoms and calm yourself down by talking yourself out of the attack. The more you do this, your attacks will shorten and you will have them less often.
Change What You are Doing
If you are outside, take a walk and focus on your surroundings getting your mind off your symptoms.
Plant Extracts and Oils
Keep a small bottle of Angelica, or Lavender Oil handy and put a drop on your hand or Kleenex and breathe in the aroma.
Listen to soothing music such as music for meditation. Add yoga or meditation into your daily activities. Either one is a good de-stressor and helps your body to relax.
