Do You Suffer From CnidophobiaTweet
What is Cnidophobia?
Cnidophobia- Fear of stings.
Just as the body has an automatic process to prepare it for a fight or flight situation, it can also go into what is called the 'relaxation response'. This stage of low arousal is less well known than the body's red-alert status, and it initially takes a concentrated effort in order to experience it.
The symptoms of the fight or flight response - increased metabolic rate, quickened heart rate and faster breathing - are the direct opposite of those experienced by the body while in a state of deep relaxation.
