Seattle, Washington (PressExposure) December 29, 2011 -- aHealthStop.com is a site that is dedicated to health and wellness as well as personal growth. That's why the owner of the site was concerned when she discovered a social phobia that affected millions of people worldwide, but was a fairly unknown social phobia - even to those who were suffering from it. The phobia discovered was Emetophobia.
For those who have never heard of it - Emetphobia is the fear of vomit. Not just that the person who has the illness will vomit, but that anyone around them will. It causes the sufferer to become basically immobile because they fear going into the outside world in case this event should happen and they will immediately get sick.
Emetophobia can be put into the same class of phobias as anxiety or panic attacks. The difference, according to the site owner, is that the person is afraid to leave the house and go anywhere! Usually with panic attacks the person is on their way somewhere and suddenly gets a sick feeling and has to turn around and go home. It doesn't happen every time they go out, and is very annoying and uncontrollable when it does.
According to research done on emetophobia According to research done on emetophobia at http://www.ahealthstop.com/emetophobia-treatment/, there is an Emetophobia Treatment available just as there is help for the other social phobias. The number one problem that was found was that people who suffer from this disease think they are crazy or that it's all in their head. But the fear of vomit does have a diagnosis - and it does have a treatment.
aHealthStop.com wants to bring awareness to these people and let them know that they are not alone. There is help available to conquer this fear. Please note though that it is not a disease that you can just take a pill for. The person first needs to acknowledge that they have a problem, and then understand that the treatment will not be instant. However, it will be life-changing - and permanent.
