Self help books are written with the intention of instrucing someone how to overcome a problem. Some problems can be solved by self help books and some can not. If you are suffering from panic attacks you will be pleased to know that self help books have been shown to provide relief to panic attack sufferers.

Over 4.6 million people suffer from panic attacks. A staggering number when you consider that the population of Los Angeles is 3.7 million. Now I hope these numbers made you raise you eyebrows a bit. For many sufferers, panic attacks can make you feel isolated and make you feel as if you are losing your mind, and this is just not true. You are not alone, as you can see by the numbers above, and you are not losing your mind. You are just experiencing overwhelming and irrational fears that can be helped and reduced. Self help books can be one of these tools you can use to rid yourself of these feelings.

One reason to look into self help books are that the are inexpensive. Prices range anywhere from $180 dollars to as little as $5. However you usually get what you pay for. The more expensive books usually come with support, including videos, CD's, and phone support. These options can be very helpful for someone that struggles with just reading a book. The less expensive ones can also be a very big help however do not provide the much needed support that others may require. Remember you know what your level of panic attacks are, what type of person you are, and what type of help you may need. Use the self help book that you think will serve you best and remember a small investment now may save you from bigger problems down the road.

Another advantage of self help books is that they can be used from the privacy of your own home. Now that you even know the numbers above and realize that you are not alone, this is not something that you are going to be talking with your neighbor about. Panic attacks can be frightening and they may even lead you to feel anxious about walking out the door. Self help books can treat you right from your home and give you the privacy you may need to overcome your anxiety. They can offer relaxation techniques and also provide you with mental exercises to prevent or help you through a panic attack. Keeping this in mind however, if you feel that you need medical attention right away do not hesitate to get it. Paramedics, doctors, and hospital staff are trained in how to treat a panic attack sufferer; never rely on a book if you think you are having a medical emergency.

Finally, some self help books have been shown to help people tremendously and some have not. Check the product reviews before you buy and read what others have had to say about a certain product. Weigh the pro's and con's; certain books deal with generalized anxiety, some with strictly panic attacks, and some with a mixture of all types of disorders. Make sure you are getting the help you need with your particular problem.

Self help for panic attacks can be a great way to help reduce unwanted anxiety; they also offer support and privacy. But the biggest thing they can help you with is restoring your confidence and this is an important key in helping you defeat future attacks.

With over 4.6 million people suffering from panic attacks always remember that you are not alone, keep faith in yourself to know that you will conquer this, and never forget that self help for panic attacks can be a valuable tool to beat these feelings for good.
