Who wants to deal with sickness, vomiting and diarrhea? Taking a medication to alleviate an illness or disease process are likely to cause these three side effects, in addition to other side effects? Panic attacks come about through stress to the body. Many people are aware of the stressors in their life that can bring about a panic attack. Other people under stress can have a panic attack or anxiety and not know why. Panic attacks or anxiety attacks make no difference if male or female.
I am one of those examples. Medical knowledge makes no difference when a panic attack hits. I had never experienced a panic attack, and I was clueless as to why I was feeling as I felt.
Nurses experience stress every day of their career. I was getting over a bout of bronchitis. In the middle of the night, I experienced a wicked headache, took two Acetaminophen, and went back to bed. In about 30 minutes, my heart started to race. The best way I can relate this feeling is sheer unknown fear of my own home, and I needed to get out as quickly as possible. It is a flight or fight feeling. I felt I wanted to run outside and keep going. A person cannot usually identify the fear or from where it comes.
These feelings escalated, and I called by allergy doctor who brushed off the feelings and said he would call in a prescription for Valium, in the morning. My primary doctor was a Holistic M.D. about 45 minutes from home. I was able to go and see him first thing in the morning. I had to drive on the highway and was in a state of fear so had to drive about 5 miles, turn off and relax. The highway was frightening to me, and this was something different.
When I finally arrived to the doctor’s office, he gently smiled and said, “The stress in your life can build up to the point that a panic attack can occur. He said he was going to give me a holistic remedy to take when I felt the fear starting. I could use it every two hours. When I took this, the symptoms immediately disappeared. It was an incredible remedy, with immediate response and no side effects.
This remedy eliminated all signs and symptoms of anxiety. It was so successful that I researched it and found that the doctor had given me Strychnine! This is when I first learned the concept of remedies and how they work on the body. I returned to the doctor in a week for follow up. I told him that he had prescribed to me a known poison. He smiled and said, “I see you are feeling and looking better, and you have been doing your homework. What did you find out”? I told him what I found out I was taking. He explained to me about holistic remedies and the purpose behind a remedy. I needed this remedy off and on for about three weeks, and then infrequently. I continued to have stressors in nursing. They cannot be helped. I have had bronchitis about every year. However, never again in the last 10-15 years did I suffer from panic attacks or anxiety. Remedies will last forever if kept in their bottle in a dark cool place. I always keep the remedy with me, but I have never needed to use it again.
In my opinion, Holistic remedies are a valuable addition to a wellness plan . Look for my next article that will explain what a holistic remedy is and how it works on the body.
