Introduction: In Western Medicine, the panic syndrome cause is unknown, but the pathology is related to panic attack episodes,
where the patient will become extremely alert and anxious, many times having symptoms as arrhythmia, excessive sweating, high-blood pressure,
shortness of breath, chest pain, among other symptoms. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, panic syndrome is associated with deficiency of the
Kidney energy and Heat on the Gall-bladder meridian.
Purpose: To demonstrate that panic syndrome has energy imbalances as cause, correcting the energy imbalances is essential for
the patient’s improvement.
Methods: One case report of a 14-year-old patient. Started treatment due to panic attacks. Her background showed she received
a recommendation of antidepressants used, but her mother looked for another kind of treatment. Treatment was started with Chinese dietary
counselling and auricular acupuncture associated with apex ear bloodletting. After a while, it was performed the chakras measurement
procedure, which resulted in all chakras depleted in energy (1 in 8), and it was also started treatment with homeopathy and crystal-based
medications to replenish the chakras energy.
Results: Therefore, treating the energy imbalances improved the emotional and physical state of the patient. The patient
presented great improvement after the treatment done. She is more sociable, talks more, made new friends and feels safer, and the
symptoms and crisis disappeared.
Conclusion: It is important to perform an energy-based treatment for panic disorders, because the use of high-concentrated
drugs will harm the vital energy of the patient, maintaining the symptoms in a vicious cycle.
