How to Treat Nosophobia
Nosophobia can be diagnosed when anxiety about developing a disease detracts from quality of life. If you think that you or a loved one has nosophobia, contact your primary healthcare provider and schedule an appointment. Your doctor can refer you to a specialist who understands nosophobia and can accurately diagnose you.
Therapy has proven quite successful for people with nosophobia. A therapist will utilize various techniques to help alleviate the symptoms you experience. Exposure therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) are the two most common. In some cases, medication can help too.
