Anxiety attacks are often called panic attacks, and meditation techniques work well in treating chronic anxiety and acute anxiety attacks.

Panic disorder – Anxiety Attacks

Meditation Techniques For Anxiety Attacks

Meditation techniques for anxiety attacks are proven to be fast and effective.

In panic disorder, a person suffers from brief attacks of intense terror and apprehension, often marked by trembling, shaking, confusion, dizziness, nausea, difficulty breathing. These panic attacks, defined by the APA as fear or discomfort that abruptly arises and peaks in less than ten minutes, can last for several hours and can be triggered by stress, fear, or even exercise; the specific cause is not always apparent.

In addition to recurrent unexpected panic attacks, a diagnosis of panic disorder requires that said attacks have chronic consequences: either worry over the attacks’ potential implications, persistent fear of future attacks, or significant changes in behavior related to the attacks. Accordingly, those suffering from panic disorder experience symptoms even outside specific panic episodes. Often, normal changes in heartbeat are noticed by a panic sufferer, leading them to think something is wrong with their heart or they are about to have another panic attack. In some cases, a heightened awareness (hypervigilance) of body functioning occurs during panic attacks, wherein any perceived physiological change is interpreted as a possible life-threatening illness (i.e., extreme hypochondriasis).

Mindfulness Meditation Techniques
For Anxiety Attacks

One of the best types of meditation I have come across for anxiety is Mindfulness meditation. In brief, this meditation involves watching the breath, and accepting, acknowledging and letting go of all other thoughts that attempt to enter your consciousness.

It is simple and effective, although like all meditation it is not a quick fix for anything, and requires commitment.

There are a number of books and CDs on the subject, including one specifically for the reduction of anxiety created by Dr. Harlan Kilstein. You can also join a local club; it is often beneficial for those who start meditating to share their experiences with others. Original here.

    I have been suffering for 37 years. My body can no longer tolerate medications and I’ve tried everything I can find and afford. Nothing sustains. I just want to live my own life now.

      Hi Angela — this is a verry tough situation for you. Make sure you continue with good medical and psychological care. You could look into Dr. Kilsteins program for anxiety … it’s due to be released very soon.
