Solved: Panic Attacks and Chronic Stress

-

Anamnesis: Mrs. T. (age 44) has panic attacks. She has as well several symptoms such as:

  • Some foods intolerances
  • High blood pressure (she takes a medical drug)
  • She inclines to catch cold very frequently (only treatment with antibiotics)
  • chronic bladder infection (only treatment with antibiotics)
  • Generally more symptoms under stress conditions
  • She takes anti depressants and/or calmatives f.e. Valium etc.

My Recommendation & Individual Dosage in this Case

For me was an immune support the first base in this case. All her symptoms cause stress, esp. chronic stress for the body. Physical/emotional stress can make you ill! But already existing chronic illnesses/complaints such panic attacks worsen the complaints. Based on my experience, an immune support is very helpful here. Her immune system, which is very important for stress-balance, was lack of powder. In case of too much stress, we can be sure that our immune system is down. The hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis is the middle point of stress. Ours immune system watches & guides this axis. It is our own protecting wall (guard wall) against viruses, bacteria and parasites, fungi and any other enemy that our body may assault.

Daily Diet Base in this Case

Avoid absolutely products with high level of biogenic amines:

It is known a possible link between high biogenic amines and panic attacks, more stress reactions, problems with blood pressure and many other symptoms.

  • Yeast (bread, pizza, toast etc., all form with yeast)
  • Fresh spinach
  • Sauerkraut
  • Peanut included peanut butter, candy with peanut
  • Cheese such as blue/gorgonzola, parmesan, gouda, edammer, brie cheese (and other type) is high in biogenic amines
  • Tomato concentrate contains may high level in biogenic amine
  • Grape, grape juice, raisin
  • Generally alcohol, especially red wine
  • Vinegar especially from red wine, balsamico, vinegar essence/concentrate (household dust with vinegar base)
  • Pork meat has an high concentration of a fatty acid called arachidonic acid which causes inflammations (f.e. cystitis/bladder). Autoimmune disease or reactions (food intolerance) could get worse
  • Reduce your coffee consume. Coffee may increases risk factor for panic attack. Instant coffee contains high levels cadmium (a heavy metal) and copper. They may cause high blood pressure, panic attack with tremor and food intolerance. Inflammation too. The “best” in your case is filtered coffee without caffeine.

Which Foods are Okay?

  • Goat cheese (the most), ricotta, Mozzarella (cow milk or buffalo milk), fresh cheese, cottage, feta cheese. The best is without culinary herb/spicy (nature/pure form)
  • Bread Alternative: gluten free cracker (without yeast), gluten free pan cake, gluten free waffles or bread-mix blend (homemade bread)
  • Pizza (gluten free base & without yeast), homemade pizza
  • Table vinegar, apple vinegar
  • Fresh tomato is okay for salad, pasta sauce etc. or ready chopped tomato also is okay
  • Spinach (frozen food)

Background Information in this Case

Acai: The Acai is a fruit that grows on the Acai palm Trees in the Amazon Rainforest of Brazil. Acai has many healthy natural immune related ingredients. Freeze dried Acai powder (100 % pure, without Maltodexdrin etc.) is for me a typical natural supplement for highly stress resistance. It is a powerful antioxidant and immune-support (immune-stress-balance).

Acai is for me a possible treatment base for some Conditions:

  • For highly energy level to short or long term stress
  • High level of biogenic amines
  • For acute flu and/or cold infections
  • Pollutant or other toxin-induced diseases or symptoms
  • More antioxidant power for people i.a. with intake of medical drugs (long term).
  • Panic attacks
  • Anxiety
  • CFS (fatigue)

Goji berry: Goji Berry is for me no general food or candy or “normal” dried fruits such as mango, banana etc. . It is a berry with medical effects and it MUST have the right dosage per day. These berries are important to support a healthy immune system (i.a. for stress balance) and intercellular communication too. These berries contain unique compounds known as Lycium barbarum polysaccharides such as rhamnose, xylose, glucose, mannose, arabinose & galactose. The Goji berry also has the polysaccharides LBP1, LBP2, LBP3 and LBP4. The Goji berry is a very good to detoxification and for high blood pressure.

Ester-C in Combination with Quercetin/Bioflavonoids: I prefer the natural metabolites of ester C which provides quicker absorption and longer retention than the other form of vitamin C such as ascorbic acid. Ester C is an acid neutralized form of vitamin C with non-irritating to the digestive system. Vitamin C is very important for many function in the body f.e. energy metabolic, anti-inflammation etc. . Quercetin acts directly on the intestinal tract to reduce reactions to dietary allergens.

Rooibos Tea: Redbush Tea has i.a. anti-allergic effects, because it contains Quercetin. Studies have shown that the average 150 ml cup of Redbush Tea contains about 1.4 mg – 1.7 mg Quercetin (Bioflavonoid). It inhibits production of biogenic amines such as histamine, tyramine, phenyl ethylamine.

Cranberry Extract: Cranberry extract as dietary supplement is a natural alternative to antibiotics for urinary tract infections.

Results in this Case Study

Mrs. T. has written a draft of her experiences for my case study. Thank you very much Mrs. T. for this statement. I think this would be a possible help for other people.

I would have panic attacks, sporadically, they started when I was about 19years old. I could not trace a pattern to it and so didn’t know why or what caused it. I had been for the ALCAT blood test to ascertain why I was getting flu every month or whenever anyone coughed or sneezed near me. My GP had recommended the test because she said I had multiple food allergies and my system was so busy fighting the food allergies that it was exhausted and that’s why I always got sick. The panic attacks were also putting my blood pressure up and I have to now be on chronic hypertension medication. For the panic attacks she prescribed anti depressants and/or calmatives such as Valium etc, which didn’t stop the attacks. I was a total wreck and almost couldn’t even drive anymore. I changed my diet drastically and omitted everything I was “allergic” to. However I had the most terrible panic attacks that lasted the longest times I had ever had them and the waves of panic came back more and more severe than the times I had had before. I told my family that I thought I was losing my mind. My stress levels were off the clock!

On emailing the expert on www.cleanseplan.com (and giving them a history of my panic attacks, their severity and my almost perfect for me diet), relief came at once! They introduced me to a name for my condition, first time ever that anyone was able to pinpoint the reason for my attacks without just giving me a prescription – viz. Biogenic Amines. I “googled” these words and found out that it has to do with the central nervous systems hormones etc and that by eating certain things (that incidentally were in my green list and I was not allergic to them), I was throwing these hormones out of balance and that was what was bringing on the attacks. Since following the expert’s advice, I have been exceptionally well. I have avoided the foods he told me to avoid and have taken the supplements they recommended. Guess what?…I haven’t had a severe panic attack since. If I do eat something (against his recommendation) and feel an attack coming on – I immediately can associate the attack with the “banned” food and can get over the attack far quicker and with more peace of mind, knowing the reason my body is behaving the way it is. Truly light in my dark tunnel. I don’t need the Valium anymore!!!

I am forever grateful for the advice that I got from www.cleanseplan.com and can heartily recommend getting advice from them for your particular situation. I will always go back to them for any advice with regards to my health as I feel they look at each situation holistically and uniquely.
