Anxiety, which is often called a Panic Attack, makes the sufferer feel restless, irritated and tense. Some of the symptoms might be short breaths or panting, dizziness, shaking, numbness in the extremities and a racing heart. Millions of people suffer from anxiety, with women being affected more often than men. There is still no definitive cause that is known.

Try taking Kava Kava to relieve your symptoms. Kava Kava is a known sedative and can be taken as tea or in capsule form. Some of its side effects are drowsiness and indigestion. Consult your doctor before taking Kava Kava.

Chamomile is also a mild sedative. As little as two cups of chamomile tea a day can ease your symptoms. It has a mild calming and relaxing effect on your body.

Doing Yoga regularly can help relax muscle tension, which will calm you and ease your anxiety.

Do deep breathing exercises. Instead of the usual shallow breathing that we engage in, try to be conscious of breathing deeply into your lungs. Deep and slow breathing will also relax and ease you.

Get enough sleep. Manage your schedule so that your body is rested and sleeping for approximately 8 hours every night. When your body is sleeping, it’s doing background maintenance. If it is able to keep all of its systems running smoothly, you will be less likely to overload.

Avoid caffeine. Caffeine, being a natural stimulant, enhances nervous tension, a racing heart, jitters and irritability. Drink caffeine free sodas and if you must have coffee in the morning, cut it back to one cup!

Before you take any herb or herbal products, consult your doctor. Some herbal medicines can interact with your prescription medications.
