Hagiophobia – Fear of saints or holy things

How it Works: Getting Over Hagiophobia

It comes down to redirecting your unconscious mind. On the surface, you know your hagiophobia is illogical. But it has persisted because your subconscious has attached the idea of saints or holy things to all those negative emotions.

How to Overcome Hagiophobia: Treatment & Cure

We don’t actually treat. Nor do we cure. You are the only one with the influence to change your perceptions. We simply walk you through the process that enables you to do so.

Hagiophobia Risk Factors & Causes

Hagiophobia is usually caused by an intense negative experience from your past. But your mind can also create that fear seemingly without basis. The key is digging down to the source and replacing negative associations with positive ones. Those at greatest risk include:

- People with a general tendency towards fear and anxiety

- People characterized as high strung

- People suffering from adrenal insufficiency

Symptoms of Hagiophobia: Test & Diagnosis

We could try to further enhance our credibility with some complicated test, but it’s really pretty simple: If this fear is having a significant negative impact on your life, it’s time to do something about it.

Does the thought of saints or holy things make you nauseous? Does it trigger a dry mouth and clammy hands? Does your heart feel like it’s going to pound right out of your chest? Do your legs turn to rubber bands?

Hagiophobia Drugs & Medication

We do not encourage the use of drugs and medication because we see them as a mask. They may help you deal with your hagiophobia, but they do not actually help you overcome it.

No drug has ever been developed specifically for hagiophobia, and none can ever cure the root cause, only suppress the symptoms. And with all the uncertainty surrounding potential side effects it is hard to justify popping a prescription as a healthy solution.
