Fear of cows (Bovinophobia) is a form of animal phobia, which disrupts the normal flow of your life.
In such a phobic condition, you feel helpless and immobilized and tend to run away from the situation.
Such phobias are relentless conditions of fear and anxiety and have possibilities of returning and recurring at different stages of your life.
Phobia of cows originates from actual experiences in life. For instance, an incident of a cow chasing or charging an individual makes him afraid of the animal. After that, each time he sees a cow the person feels that the cow would abruptly attack him all of a sudden.
A cow is a domestic animal and it is an essential part of human life. In reality, a cow is a meek and docile animal and it is not at all aggressive. Therefore, the phobia of cows is quite unnatural and somewhat irrelevant.
However, it is part of human nature to be afraid of things or beings, which are dissimilar to them in appearance or nature. What you do not understand or what overlaps your rational sense makes you feel afraid and worried.
Some of the common symptoms of phobia of cows include:
- Excessive sweating
- Dry mouth
- Heart palpitations
- Inability to speak or think clearly
- Fear of death
- Sudden madness
- Loss of control
- Sense of detachment
- Full-blown anxiety attacks
Phobia of cows is an intense condition of fright or dread of something, which does not have the power or capacity of causing any sort of actual danger or threat.
What is most pathetic is that most individuals are aware of the fact that their fear is unnatural or irrelevant but they are unable to escape the condition and feel ashamed of themselves.
They are not only afraid to see a cow but the mere thought of they might see a cow horrifies them to such an extent that they suffer from panic attacks and ruthless anxiety.
It is indeed unfortunate that cow phobia therapies require months and even years to show results and in the process, the victimized individual has to be exposed to the phobic condition repeatedly as part of the treatment.
In reality, cow phobia can be cured just within a few hours making use of the right methods and with full co-operation on the part of the individual.
Several drugs are often prescribed for the phobia of cows but none of them is without any side effects or withdrawal symptoms. On the contrary, drugs and medicines cannot eliminate fear and phobias.
They can at length suppress the symptoms of the condition to make everything seem normal and under control through essential chemical reactions.
