A few natural remedies suggested are lemon balm, passiflora, and lavender. Not known if effective to this party.

St. John's Wort should help as it increases serotonin levels. Anything which increases serotonin should help.

5HTP is in the class of a serotonin increaser.

Most people experiencing PA have low serotonin.

It should be noted that the jury is out on serotonin, as in some studies an increase in serotonin is found in people having PA's!!

Hypnosis is widely suggested and supposedly efficacious.

GABA has also been suggested, and supposedly tried successfully in certain cases, but GABA agonists are much more likely to work, such as skullcap, valerian or benzodiapene.

Zinc and magnesium are nature's sedatives. The zinc may combat copper deficiency, which is related to anxiety attacks.

Vitamin B1 may help, as it deficiency is related to psychosis. Take with B6 and a multi B.

Chamomile is a sedative. May help.

You should check that low BG is not the cause of this. If eating a banana or something sweet tends to help this may be the culprit. Eliminating sugar from the diet may help.

If the PA is adrenal related, it is said Siberian Ginseng and Winter Cherry may help. These are supposed to relieve adrenal fatigue.

It is possible SAMe may help, as anti-Depressants are known to help. SAMe is more effective than most anti-d's.

thank you EC,
when you say adrenal related, do you mean thyroid?
She had to take radioactive iodine to kill overactive thyroid cells,
so far it has seemed to work.
She says she tried Hypnosis, but she can't be hypnotized.

My friend's daughter suffered from anxieties/panic attacks and swears by Valerian root from the health food store steeped in hot water as a tea. Buy it in bulk and keep in an air-tight container as it apparently stinks to high heaven.

However, not sure if there are any side affects(?)

Endocrine hormone secretors are the pituitary gland, pancreas, ovaries, testes, thyroid gland and adrenal glands. The hypothalamus and stomach also secrete hormones.

Secondary messengers are needed for these hormones/neurotransmitters such as epinephrine/adrenalin to work.

Only the adrenals are involved with adrenal hormone.

The entire energy transmission system depends on a complex chemical cascade outside and inside the cell, any part of which can be a major effector of the system.

Liver, heart, bones, depression. The wonder drug SAMe. Sulf adenosyl methionine. SAMe is a naturally produced substance that is a co-factor in adrenaline production. (Adrenaline is otherwise known as epinephrine.) What is known is that SAMe and melatonin are in a cycle of high and low levels corresponding with night and day. It is also known that heart disease correlates with low SAMe levels. SAMe is known to be the most effective anti depressant, as well as a treatment for alcohol related liver disease, and osteoarthritis. It may be that it could be used for heart disease as well. SAMe metabolizes to homocysteine, so it would seem you need extra B1, b6, B12 and folate to metabolize the homocysteine. Zinc would follow too, as you need the extra zinc to activate the B's.

Most important is ZERO caffeine intake. I would take inositol, B6, Vit C, Cal/Mag, Niacin/imide and 5-HTP. Increase consumption of low GI carbs like oatmeal which will increase seretonin levels.

Just became aware in the last week/10 days that Hg is used in the processing of HFCS.

Always wondered why all the warnings about high fructose corn syrup.

Seeking insights as to why Hg is associated with it's production at all.

Even conspiracy theories will be entertained.

Let's see...
mercury in our fish
mercury in our teeth
mercury in antiseptics
mercury in thermometers
mercury in thermostats and STILL in action lights up children's tennis shoes
mercury in our fluorescent light fixtures--by law
mercury on our antique christmas ornaments and ornated mantel clocks
mercury in our neon signs
now mercury in our HFCS?

What the heck is going on here?

Looking forward to further enlightenment about Hg and HFCS

washingtonpost.com

This is supposedly an outdated report, circa 2005. The industry says that the source of the mercury was hydrochloric acid and sodium hydroxide, which is now used in mercury free form. The culprit is the caustic, which is made often with mercury cells.

Another report about the same study (ies).

naturalnews.com

The studies' authors say that the tests were done on 55 brand name foods in 2008, and half contained detectable mercury. The reports were made in 2009. I cannot find any other references than these two studies, which they say were not "peer reviewed".
