Ophidiophobia <---I had a fear of snakes

Ophidiophobia-Fear Of Snakes covers the causes, signs, symptoms and treatment, along with self help steps you can take to fight this disease.
Ophidiophobia-Fear Of Snakes
Fear Of Snakes Signs And Symptoms:

Who doesn't fear snakes? Fear of snakes for their venom is rational fear...a healthy respect for the danger some snakes represent. Ophidiophobia is irrational fear of all snakes...those on the ground, in a cage, on TV, even in your imagination. When the anxiety is extreme, irrational, even to panic attacks or disability, it has moved from fear to phobia.
Fear Of Snakes Causes:

While many think fear of snakes stems from some childhood experience, there is some evidence that other causes may exist. The snake is a Biblical symbol of evil, which may tend to heighten the fear in some. Of course, the many snake attacks in TV and movies only add to the anxiety of some.
Fear Of Snakes Treatment:

As with any anxiety disorder, medications can reduce the anxiety symptoms. You should make sure any medical therapy includes psychological therapy to restore a normal fear response and eventually eliminate the medications.
Fear Of Snakes Self Help:

There are several self help anxiety management techniques you can use, including breathing exercises, relaxation imagination exercises and positive self-talk. You can gradually face your fears over several months, using pictures, then caged snakes, then live harmless ones, etc. As you expose yourself to the thing you fear, you begin to realize you're safe.
Total Healing:

Mental Health conditions can be frustrating and painful. We both know there are no guaranteed cures or quick fixes, whether medicine, nutrition, herbs or anything else. Many illnesses are "incurable" from the medical standpoint. Complete healing is possible...including mind, body and spirit...from God. If you want God's help with this or any problem, go to Help From God.
