Depending on the type of anxiety you have, the intensity and frequency of your attacks teas and tisanes may or may not help you stop an attack but might help with symptoms management.

It depends. For the teas and tisanes to work you might have to make food and lifestyle changes: reduction of sugar, caffeine or other stimulants like energy drinks.

Just need to remind you that these are only suggestions. Please double check with your medical provider; especially if you are pregnant or are taking other medication.
