The Many Causes of Panic

As stated, research has demonstrated that mindfulness-based stress reduction can be
extremely beneficial in decreasing panic. We’re sure that you too can use these mindful
practices to live better with panic and decrease the challenges you face.
Before you get started, you should know that although most cases of panic stem
from the psyche, there are some cases in which it derives from physiological sources.
Although mindfulness training may help you regardless of the cause of your panic, you
may also need to consult a health care professional to investigate whether there’s any
biological reason you feel panicky. In addition, if your panic attacks are frequent or
severe, it’s best if you take steps to address your panic under the guidance and
supervision of a health care professional.
Sometimes a very active thyroid (hyperthyroidism), low blood sugar
(hypoglycemia), heart arrhythmia, or other physiological conditions can lead you to
panic. Some medications and herbs may have side effects that make you susceptible to
panic. You may also want to look at diet as a contributing factor, especially if you
consume lots of caffeine or highly refined carbs and sugary foods.
