Discover Help for Panic Attacks through Hypnosis
Do any of the following situations sound familiar? You are driving in congested traffic and have to come to a sudden stop as a careless driver cuts right in front of you. All of a sudden, you are finding it difficult to breathe and you feel trapped in your own car. You are engaged in a screaming match with your spouse or partner and, seemingly out of nowhere, you begin to experience chest pains and dizziness.
You are alone on an elevator and it comes to a screeching halt between floors. In the two minutes that the elevator takes to resume proper function, you have convinced yourself that you are going to die in that small space and no one will notice for weeks. If you found yourself nodding your head to any of these scenarios, or you have experienced something similar, you may have had a panic attack.
There are around three million people in the United States who suffer from panic attacks, so please know that you are not alone. Panic attacks are described as one of the most distressing and terrifying conditions that a person can experience, as the symptoms can appear so suddenly and often mimic those of a heart attack or a nervous breakdown. While these attacks can last from a few seconds to several hours, most times the symptoms will exhibit themselves for about thirty minutes. There is no doubt that this half-hour of time can seem like an eternity for someone in the midst of a panic attack’s grips.
What are some indications that you may be experiencing a panic attack? The symptoms may include; a racing or pounding heartbeat, nausea, difficulty breathing, hot flashes, trembling or shaking, feeling of choking, and fear of losing control or dying. With this in mind, it is no wonder that many first-time sufferers contact their local emergency room as quickly as possible!
There are many reasons that certain people are more inclined to suffer from panic attacks. Panic disorders have been shown to run in families, so certainly heredity must be considered. Men and women with strong phobias may experience a panic attack when confronted with the situation or object they fear so greatly. The withdrawal process from alcohol, drugs, or other medications can cause an onset of panic as the effects of the substances leave the body.
Finally, and perhaps a cause that is not considered often, a lack of assertiveness in an individual can cause panic attacks. When you engage in passive communication with others, you may be holding in important emotions that eventually explode in the form of an attack. While this is not an exhaustive list, many people who suffer from panic attacks will find one of these issues as the source of their condition.
There is a safe and effective method for bringing an end to the panic attacks that cripple your life. A trained clinical hypnotherapist can introduce you to relaxation techniques that will unlock the initial source of your attack and remove that connection in your mind. You will no longer have to live in fear that certain situations or people will trigger another traumatic episode.
