I find people with phobic aversion to something quite fascinating. But it also makes me feel sorry, because their fears are very real. An old friend of mine has a very irrational fear of  flying insects. And not even her family knows exactly why. Is there a cure for phobias? How are they treated?

I have seen a video of a regression session wherein three people with phobias were regressed and brought back to a certain past life. And this past life had something to do with why the person has that irrational fear. And once they already have a glimpse of that past life and they get to see what brought on that fear, that fear just goes away. It was really amazing.

Although phobias are quite common, they rarely cause significant disruption or considerable distress. So if your phobia doesn’t really impact your life that much, it’s probably nothing to be concerned about. But if avoiding your fear and the objects or situations that trigger your phobia already interferes with your normal function and your everyday activities, that’s when I say it’s time to seek help.

Right. Fears like spiders, snakes, or heights usually don't affect every day life that much, but fears like crowds or going outside definitely can! The right counseling or medications can be helpful in these instances.

One had a phobia of birds and feathers, and this poor woman cannot even enjoy the beach with her children because of the birds. One woman also had a fear of indentations and holes. Because of this she cannot eat chocolates. The last guy had a fear of drinking water! Beat that! He has to be forced to drink water every day and had to rely on water retention therapy to keep himself hydrated and alive.

Well, not many people believe in past lives and in past life regression, so I don’t think that’s too much of an option.

I agree. Besides, past life regression is something that’s not easy to do. Regressions must be done by experts, and there aren’t too many around.

From what I know, the most frequently used treatment for phobias is a kind of cognitive behavioral therapy. This type of CBT is called systematic desensitization, which is also known as exposure therapy, and is considered very effective.

In exposure therapy, the patient is exposed in a safe and controlled way to the object of fear. The patient has gradual encounters with the object of fear, first in his or her imagination, then in reality. These encounters are also combined with relaxation techniques. Through these repeated experiences, the patient starts to realize that the object or situation is not harmful, and with repeated exposure, the patient feels an increasing sense of control over his or her fear.

Most phobias are curable, but no single treatment is guaranteed to work for all phobias. In some cases, a combination of different treatments may be recommended. The main types of treatment include -talking treatment, exposure therapy,and medication..

I fear I have a few phobias, but I kind of force myself to address them.  If I am afraid of something, I usually play out the most horrible possible scenario & then know that wasting anymore time on it, is simply wasting time.  Obviously, life can throw many curve balls so one should try to be prepared for changes, but honestly, what more can you do but accept whatever you get?  I think your reaction to any problem, fear or whatnot is truly what keeps you moving along, because you cannot live your life if you are afraid of the unknown.  If you resign control & believe that divine protection exists, I believe you can master any phobia & deal with most troubles.  I had learned to call this "blind faith" & when new & unknown, "act as if" until you do not need to act any longer.

I have phobia of heights, especially when I feel I am not in control of a situation. For example, if I am jumping from 5-6 feet off the ground on to flat surface, I won't be scared because I already know that I will land safely. It is only when I don't know the outcome that time I get really freaked out. I have tried medications too for anxiety, But it only works upto its effect remains. Then I decided to try hypnotherapy treatment and joined Phobiaman Clinic. I have taken only a couple of therapy sessions there and they seems to be really effective for making you calm and feel rested. Now I have been told that they will be using regression therapy in next sessions. Hope it will help to overcome my fear. I will share my experience about this therapy here if it works or not.
