The Charles Linden Method has helped thousands of people all over the world curing panic disorder and other common phobias.
The following is a list of ten common disorders with the symptoms. If you can recognise yourself in one or several of them, you probably suffer under the restrictions that these conditions leave you under.
The good news is, you can get help.
1: Agoraphobia – Agoraphobia is the irrational fear of open places or crowded places. Approximately, 2.2% of the American population suffer from agoraphobia, whereof most are women (60%). People, who suffer from agoraphobia, tend to avoid open places like shopping malls. However, for a few people this will even lead to fear of leaving their home.
2: Acrophobia – Acrophobia is the irrational fear of heights. This disorder has hit around 2% of the population, and again, there are more women than men, who suffers from it. Around twice as many women than men are affected by acrophobia.
3: Claustrophobia – Claustrophobia is the irrational fear of enclosed spaces. As many as 5-7% of the population is estimated to suffer from this disorder. People, who are affected by claustrophobia, will avoid enclosed spaces like elevators, small rooms without windows, and even tight clothing might make them feel uncomfortable.
4: Aviophobia – Aviophobia, or aviatophobia, is the irrational fear of flying. This phobia can be related to other phobias, like claustrophobia, acrophobia or even agoraphobia. In today’s world, this phobia can be very crippling, and it prevents people from visiting family, going on holiday, or even from doing business that involves flight.
5: Escalophobia – Escalophobia is the irrational fear of escalators. It might be related to acrophobia, since most people are only afraid of going down with the escalator. However, some also fear going up.
6: Arachnophobia – Arachnophobia is the irrational fear of spiders and other arachnids, such as scorpions. Some people suffer so deeply from this disorder that even a picture of a spider can make them afraid.
7: Dentophobia – Dentophobia is the irrational fear of dentists. This is a very common phobia, probably because most of us have experienced some kind of pain related to a dentist. However, it’s not only the pain that frightens people. It could also be the fear of having their mouths numbed, and not being able to breathe or swallow.
8: Glossophobia – Glossophobia is the irrational fear of speaking in public. About 75% of all public speakers suffer more or less from anxiety, when they are speaking in public. Some will experience speech-disorders in those situations. Common symptoms are nausea, or a feeling of panic prior to the speaking.
9: Nosophobia – Nosophobia, or nosemaphobia, is the irrational fear of getting ill. People, who suffer from this disorder, will avoid public phones, and touching other people.
10: Panic attacks – Panic attacks will be connected with many of the above phobias. Some people will suffer from panic attacks, if they are forced to step unto an escalator, for instance. Panic attacks, or anxiety attacks, are defined as episodes of intense fear of a relatively brief duration. However, for a person who’s in the midst of a panic attack, thirty minutes or so may seem very long.
