When I was 24 years old I suffered from severe panic attacks. I am Hispanic and live in the U.S. Many American Hispanics from the U.S. love chili and I was raised with a big bowl of yellow chili in juice at the table morning, noon, and for supper. As a child I only had a little juice from the chili bowl on my food. Eventually I graduated to large serving with food until I was totally hooked on chili. My family was from New Mexico where some of the best chili in the world is from! Red or green is mostly used. And usually it is hot! We loved it! We ate enchiladas and tacos, burritos, beans with chili! Anyway I didn't know it but the chili was causing me a lot of acid and this worked hand in hand with my severe panic attacks! The acid from these foods and spicy dishes was causing me really severe panic attacks! Eventually I noticed that Rolaids or Tums and even baking soda in water would help control my panic attacks! I ended up cutting down on spicy foods and this in my case stopped the panic attacks. If I feel a panic attack coming on which today is rare, I head for the acid medication fast! This usually stops the panic attacks in my case. I now have very little chili in my diet.
