Many people love drinking coffee and some have already made it part of their morning routine. Coffee drinkers are usually enjoying their day taking a sip before going to work and it has been a practice that most of them are used of doing every day.
However, experts say that such routine is not advisable to people who are suffering from anxiety disorders because caffeine had been proven to be one of the triggers of panic attacks. There are also a number of foods and drinks that contain caffeine but not all of these foods could trigger the attack.
Anxiety attacks and caffeine are not always related to each other because it varies in different people. And it does not necessarily mean that if a patient will eliminate the intake of caffeine, they will not experience these attacks anymore. A patient should keep in mind that panic attacks are not caused by the intake of caffeinated foods alone, but it has a lot of triggering factors that needs to be considered by the person who is suffering from such health problem.
Causes of anxiety attacks also includes poor diet, too much stress, negative thought patterns over time and some other environmental factors. Although anxiety and caffeine could be linked to each other, the fact remains that only an excessive intake of such ingredient could put a patient who is suffering from anxiety to a risk of experiencing a panic attack.
A patient with an anxiety disorder may not deprive himself of consuming caffeine because it’ effects may be controlled by reducing the amount of intake. A patient may find a level of caffeine that works for them without increasing their anxiety and may stick with that level.
If you are suffering from such condition you can decide whether to keep caffeine in your diet or not, because you are the only person who can decide what is too much for you. Asking for your physician’s assistance will also help you decide what diet would be best for you.
