    Hi. I've had anxiety for 5 years . I try to excerise at least an hour a day. I drink no caffeine no Sodas nothing , anything that gets my heart rate going I stay away from . Also I limit sugar from my diet. I try to stick with protein and veggies . I occasionally drink wine but even that makes me anxious. Thanks

    I have found juicing is wonderful. Its is natures way of replenshing the body with suppliments. Because it is in its natural form the body knows how to absorb and utilize it. Ginger is great is great for dizzy spells(one inch in a juicer) and a natural anti inflammatory. Celery juice is one of the best tonic for the nerves and the body. Green apples calm the body as well and provide pectin to lower bely issues. Mixing those three in a juice is extremly benifical to the body on a daily basis. There are tons of recipes on pinterest for ailments. A clean diet even the heart smart diets are good for a person with anxiety issues. All online to view. Keeping the body well hydrated is great for muscles and nerves to function properly. Yoga should be implemented for anyone with anxiety. It releases pent up energy and teaches excellent self calming tools and good breathing techniques. Qigong as well. Meditation, which takes time to really embrace is like a spa for the mind. A safe way to escape your intrusive thoughts and relax the body. Mindfullness excersies can be self taught off utube or an app and is fantastic.

    tricks to calm once a panic attacks sets in. Body temperature changes trigger the body to react, its a machine. Very cold water face washes. Placing a cold rag or ice packs on your face and back of neck. Getting a fan and allowing it to blow on your face calms palps. Laying flat on your butt to the floor and raising your legs up on the wall with cold rags on face and the fan blowing in your face will calm your heart rate.  Sitting on a toilet seat, any seat and bearing down.lowers heart rate too, ghise are pala teicks. You can use ice chips under your tongue if unable to lay on the floor. In a car ice chios and make the car very cold. It works. The symptoms that run thru you are the effect if the adrenaline rush and it sends fear thru you, but it is a response of the body to the trigger of fight or flight so allow it to wash over you. No emotional attatchments at all. Do belly breathing whilst it is occurring allowing no thiught ps but calm and safe. Ten minute cycle and will stop UNLESS you allow intrusive thoughts and fear the fear sensatiin. Fear only reinforces the mal function of the fight or flight response as a valid reaction. Thats a bad bad idea because at that point you are programming your body how to react to the sensations rather then accepting it as a rush.

    listen to your body. Better to hear it in yoga or mediation. It is trying to tell you something. Whether it is not to listen to every passing thought, to love yourself more, to leave the oast in the oast as you cant rewrite it anyway or just  change your thiught patterns..it is trying to tell you something. The body hates to reside in the high state of anxiety it is un natural and causes distress so immune system does get effected. Thats too is cause and effect. 

    Feeding it properly and nutrient filled, keeping it hydrated and provoding some form of exercise is important so it can bounce back from the anxiety. Be open to change. 

    Its honestly an awful disorder. No doubt on that. It seems random and intense at times. Realize in this mindset you are frazzled and hypersensitive. You just are so be compassionate to your self. 

    I also use chopped holy basil be cause it lowers blood pressure. And i use magnessium flakes foot soaks. Calming to the whole body. Sleeping is great for the body to heal but it gets hard when the mind is very anxious. Im happy i get five hours sometimes. Naps are useful if possible.

    That is  what i have learned. That my own experiences so i wrote them. They have helped me. I also have an emergency xanax here and there.
