Heather plant solves fears of disease (hypochondria)
Although most young people feel immortal with fear, fears of various diseases arise. These fears can develop into hypochondria in some people. People are most afraid of cancer, heart attack and stroke. With the outbreak of the pandemic, fears increased.
Hypochondria is close to anxiety. The person is constantly frightened and has countless worries related to their own health. The hypochondriac constantly thinks that doctors have missed something and often visits various medical professionals in search of a diagnosis. In all this confusion, family and friendly relations are suffering. Close people then try to calm the hypochondriac but this usually lasts for a short time. People who suffer from hypochondria exhaust their own body and close people. Attention is focused on the body, ie on the physical symptoms that the hypochondria fully analyze. Then various health problems arise due to this burden of anxiety.
5 tips for people who have fears of the disease:
- It is best to seek help from a psychologist (or psychotherapist) because this is a mental disorder. Psychotherapy will make life easier and discover the cause (core) of the problem.

Pour half a liter of boiling water. Cover the bowl with tea and leave for about 20 minutes. Drink throughout the day in small sips.
- The heather plant (lat. Heather) is an ideal aid for hypochondria. These are Bach’s flower essences. They can be bought in some pharmacies, shops, drugstores or at practitioners of the Bach method. This herb is extremely effective for hypochondria (fears). The first results are visible after 2 to 3 months of using the essence.
