In addition to our “Introducing” and “Home-Remedies” series of posts, we now launch a new series called “Presenting – Phobia” series. Each post will present another Phobia and discuss, manifestations, how-to-deal with people who have these phobias by explaining the Phobia itself, provide some suggested alternative herbs, supplements or nutritional support proven effective and other remedies with sources for more information.
We all have a Phobia or two lingering inside or for some, showing itself by dictating our behavior patterns. Many Phobias are viewed as eccentricities or oddities of a personality, and many indeed are. However some Phobias do prevent you from learning to your maximum ability, engaging in a meaningful relationship, or even going out for a cup of coffee with friends. You may recognize some of your own traits, latent and apparent, in these many Phobias.
Knowing you have a Phobia does not mean you have to seek a cure. Of course that depends on the Phobia itself. For example one can live with Apiphobia through life, and as long as you are not around bees, you will never suffer a moment of any major consequence being Apiphobic. On the other hand, if you are Bathmophobic (Fear of stairs or steep slopes) and live in San Franscisco, you need immediate help.
We hope you enjoy the series and that it will help you better understand the people around you and perhaps yourself.
