|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.
