I'm sorry. I have no intention of being a contrarian, but that is out of date information. I've had an interest in these issues for decades.

OK, no problems - so you say that this is out of date and you have better information - please give us that information with references. I am open to learn from proven sources and many people are interested in this subject.

We are all entitled to our own opinions - but we are not entitled to our own "facts'. This is more so the case when what we write can affect the lives of other people.


No disrespect Paul, but I have little faith in an exchange of citations on the internet. People just dispute the validity of the sources of the citations they do not like. More honestly, I am too tired and do not care enough to look up where I read them. That isn't disrespect, just an honest answer.

What foods are good for the nervous system? I'm putting together a mild exercise regime and not to mention meditation too.

Any thoughts would be most welcome.

The true cause of anxiety is akusala citta.

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:
