Fear Of Flying-Aviophobia covers the causes, signs, symptoms and treatment, along with what you can do about this condition.

Fear Of Flying-Aviophobia

Causes Of Aviophobia:

Many phobias can be related as possible causes of aviophobia, like acrophobia (fear of heights) and claustrophobia (fear of closed spaces).  Other fears and anxieties can be the cause, like fear of hijacking, mid-air collisions, lack of control, etc. 

Signs And Symptoms Of Aviophobia: 

What takes the rational discomfort of flying to aviophobia is if the fear actually limits your life in a significant way.  Do you avoid trips you want to take because of necessary air travel?  Do you limit your career because such travel is required for advancement?  Do you have frequent severe panic attacks when you travel by air?  These are all indications you're suffering from aviophobia.

Treatment Of Aviophobia:

Often, simply learning about the safety of flying can help take the edge off.  To manage this phobia, drug therapies are available, if warranted. 

What You Can Do About Aviophobia:

Some use drinking before and during the flight, with the obvious risk of developing alcoholism.  Not good reasoning...if it helps with this fear, maybe it will help with all of them.  Some people manage their fear of flying by not flying.  If you can live a normal life without flying, why go through the tension?  If you do need to confront this fear, you can use calming self-talk, breathing and relaxation techniques while gradually increasing your exposure to flying.

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 for any problem, go to Help From God.
