“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

Well, I know my answers offend you or aren't very helpful but suffer from anxiety.

I stay away from caffeine and take Kalm tablets.
I also drink chamomile tea.
Another mothed I used was the paper bag thing.

Unfortunately, panic attacks can last a long while :cry: but they do disappear eventually! :smile:

The best food to reduce anxiety is to not eat after 12, take it easy on the base entertainments, drastically reduce all sexual activity and sleep on the floor so as to prevent over sleeping.

In my case this has certainly been true, the extra precepts for "the meditator" allow your mind to remain in a state of calm. You'll come to find that it doesn't have to do so much with food as it does with driving your mind crazy. On the other hand, I assume it wouldn't hurt to stick with "natural foods" like fruits, vegatables, meat, fish, nuts etc. Stay away from alcohol and other drugs (These are probably the leading cause of crazyness) stay away from refined foods as well as deep fried and poof anxiety gone.

In the human body, sodium acts as a contractor and potassium as a relaxer. Sadly for most eating a regular North American diet, we get high amounts of sodium and very little potassium.

Foods to reduce anxiety would be of two kinds, foods high in potassium and foods high in magnesium—which is also a mineral that relaxes. For potassium, all vegetables are abundant in this mineral, especially leafy greens. As for magnesium, which is much harder to come by, it is found in decent amounts in buckwheat, leafy greens, oats, avocados, black molasses, dairy, as well as other sources.

traditional Chinese medicine or acupuncture teaches that certain foods help different organs, I suggest you see an acupuncturist and tell them your symptoms they will give you a diet tailored to your problems its helped me with my anxiety. metta befriend
