Homeopathy for Panic Attacks Can Be Extremely Effective
When I started having panic attacks in my 20s, I thought I was going to die. I felt as though my throat was constricting and I had to constantly clear it. I felt sick, my whole body used to be covered in cold sweat and I would tremble all over. I even suffered from palpitations and thought I was having a heart attack. The feeling was terrible. Panic attacks had a debilitating effect on my life. They did not allow me to live a normal and functional life. I was constantly anxious, fearful and afraid. I think I would have continued to struggle with these attacks had I not discussed it with a friend. I did not want to take medications, as side effects were the last thing I wanted to deal with along with my panic attacks. My friend convinced me to try homeopathy for panic attacks.
I was a still skeptical to begin with, but I still decided to give it a try. I was quite surprised with the results. Homeopathic remedies for panic attacks are prescribed based on the symptoms. Hence, each person gets a different remedy depending on the symptoms. I also was surprised with the efficacy of the homeopathic remedy prescribed to me by a licensed homeopathic practitioner.
