Panic Attacks: What You Need to Know

We feel for you: Panic attacks can seem like they come out of nowhere, leaving you feeling helpless and overwhelmed. But the truth is, they’re often the result of days, weeks, or even months of building anxiety. 

If you’ve recently experienced a panic attack, you’re not alone. Many people find themselves in the emergency room, convinced something is physically wrong, only to be told that everything appears normal. The panic attack, however, was very real.

The Real Cause of Panic Attacks

Panic attacks are not just random events. At their core, they stem from a baseline of anxiety that’s been steadily increasing. 

Imagine your anxiety levels as water in a pot. Ideally, this pot should be nearly empty. However, for many people, it’s already almost full due to chronic stress. A minor stressor can push the water over the edge, resulting in a panic attack.

What’s Going On in Your Brain That is Causing Panic Attacks?

Through my work with qEEG Brain Mapping, I’ve seen firsthand how panic attacks manifest in the brain. The data shows that individuals who experience panic attacks often have brains stuck in a state of chronic stress activation. 

This condition is called sympathetic nervous system dominance, where the fight-or-flight response is constantly engaged, preventing the brain from balancing itself with the calming rest-and-digest response of the parasympathetic nervous system.

Why This Matters: Real Stories, Real Results

You don’t have to struggle anymore. Through advanced neuroscience technology, you can thrive. Dr. Trish Leigh has guided countless individuals through the challenges of panic attacks. 

Through qEEG Brain Mapping and a neurofeedback coaching program, she can understand and help you make sense of your experiences and reclaim your sense of control.

Our client, Jane, was overwhelmed by panic attacks. She couldn’t pinpoint a single event that triggered them, which left her feeling more frustrated and anxious. Through qEEG Brain Mapping, we identified her chronic stress patterns and developed a personalized neurofeedback plan.

Over time, Jane was able to reduce her anxiety levels and prevent her panic attacks. Her story is just one of many that highlight the effectiveness of understanding and addressing the root causes of anxiety.

The Path to Recovery

If you’ve experienced a panic attack, reducing chronic anxiety and increasing your ability to engage in the parasympathetic state are crucial steps towards recovery. Here’s how you can start:

  1. Understand Your Brain: Get a qEEG Brain Map to see how chronic stress affects you.
  2. Practice Relaxation: Engage in activities that promote the parasympathetic response, such as deep breathing, meditation, or gentle exercise.
  3. Seek Support: Work with a brain health coach or therapist who can help you develop strategies for managing stress and anxiety.
  4. Make Lifestyle Changes: Incorporate stress-reducing habits into your daily routine, like adequate sleep, healthy eating, and regular physical activity.
