Understanding Anxiety and Panic Disorders
by Luella May
Anxiety disorders affect 2.4 million Americans. This means that 1 in 113 Americans lives with this condition. Contributing factors range from our toxic environment, to the very foods we eat, to our hectic pace of life.
A certain amount of anxiety is a normal part of life and can be beneficial in our day-to-day performance. However, anxiety becomes debilitating when it escalates beyond proportion and becomes out of control, almost having a life of its own. A person who suffers from this type of disorder feels the same stresses and fears that we do with one major difference: Their stress and fear is overly magnified.
For example, think of a time when you were the most fearful. Now, magnify it 100 times. How does it feel? Magnify it again 100 times…and again…and again. Do this until you have magnified this feeling 1,000 times. This is exactly what a person with an anxiety disorder experiences.
A person who suffers from anxiety doesn’t experience stress as we do. Our feelings of stress are of a temporary duration. A person suffering from anxiety has an overwhelming constant sense of apprehension, very often including feelings of fear and dread. This constant heightened state of alertness, an always-present flight or fight response, places a severe demand on the body and accounts for what happens next.
Physical symptoms surface, which only serve to further frighten the individual suffering from this condition. Muscles, especially around the shoulders and neck, become stiff. They may experience heart palpitations, numbness, tingling, blurry vision, electric shock feelings, and they may experience a sensation of waves throughout their head. Actually, there have been over 100 physical symptoms reported. Too often, the uncontrolled constant surge of adrenaline brought on by this state of constant apprehension will eventually affect the sympathetic nervous system, not only causing disturbing physical symptoms, but as the demands get more difficult for the body to withstand, it can result in what is called a panic attack.
The Mayo Clinic defines a panic attack as “a sudden episode of intense fear that develops for no apparent reason and that triggers severe physical reactions.” I suppose this sounds bad enough, but I consider it a mild description of what a panic attack actually is. From my personal perspective, a panic attack is nothing short of a simulated heart attack or stroke. It is no wonder that a person suffering a panic attack feels as though death is imminent. To make matters worse, these panic attacks do not usually occur in the comfort of your own home. They usually occur in public, very often in a store setting. Another common place for a panic attack to occur is while driving a car. This only serves to add to the terror that the individual already feels.
Supplements that are just as effective in treating anxiety disorders are:

Although Magnific Aloe Oil isn’t actually an “oil”, this solution has an “oil-like” texture because it is 17% magnesium chloride by weight. The ultra pure magnesium chloride in this “oil” is extracted from the Ancient Zechstein Seabed in Europe, 1600 to 2000 meters underground. It is then placed into solution by dissolving with carbon filtered and de-ionized spring sourced water in Utopia Texas to form an oral Magnesium Oil. The resulting solution is then combined with 200X Aloe Vera and Vitamin C to enhance healing and absorption.
