In this brief article, I will outline some of the facts around a child panic attack and decipher some clues as to what parents can do for their children in this frightening and confusing time. Children experience emotional issues such as panic and anxiety much differently than adults, so education is as important as anything when dealing with this situation. If an anxiety attack is not handled properly, the heart takes punishment first and other bodily organs follow. The brain dedicates its energy elsewhere, the lungs work harder, the heart pumps faster, and the blood thins due to lack of cellular support. Effectively a panic attack is a multi-system attacker as oppose to being just about one organ or bodily system. Even though studies are usually made only on adults (over 18 years old), this disorder affects all age groups. We all blame it on stress, too much work load or other over pressuring day to day activities. However, the scientists have found out the cause of anxiety attacks are: Brian Biochemistry or chemical imbalance There are two primary neurotransmitters; serotonin and dopamine, that affect a person’s feeling. Fight or flight generates a lot of biological processes because of the energy the body needs to perform either task. The heart races, the blood quickens, the eyes function differently, senses are heightened, and other parts of the body begin to react in other ways such as muscles tightening, etc. Anxiety attack heart difficulties can arise from the heart being told to work too fast by the brain, which is in charge of the “fight or flight” mechanism. Some have had success with a treatment known as EMDR [Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing]. This is a treatment that uses eye movements to discern information and reassign the way the brain processes it. Other alternative and natural panic attack natural remedy choices take the form in hypnosis, acupuncture and massage therapy. These conditions and others can lead to anxiety attacks and may be at the root of your problem. An effective anxiety attack treatment plan will deal with these conditions primarily. Lifestyle is Key It is also important to examine your lifestyle. If your anxiety levels are interrupting your ability to “live a normal life”, it is probably time to consult a professional.
