The old saying of “You are what you eat” will be coming in to play here. Most people think it's just a fun saying used by moms to get their kids to eat their veggies, but it's very true! So, what's the secret here? It's called comfort food. What do I mean by that?

Chocolate. Chocolate is one of the ultimate “comfort foods” out there. It's yummy, easy to eat, easy to find, and while you're digesting it, your brain releases “feel good” hormones.
Another good one is VEGETABLES. Now, I know … That does not sound like a 'comfort' food to most, but most people do not get even 1 / 10th the amount of vegetables that they need in a day. As you may realize, this can cause many health problems – both physical and mental. So, we've talked about the foods that can help you stop panic attacks … What foods should you not be eating?
Try to stay away from anything that gets your mind all bouncy and active. Things like coffee and cola are bad. Alcoholic drinks are also a no no.

It's not a magic pill, but you are now on your way to naturally curing panic attacks. You can not give up if you want to conquer them and get your life on track.
