Why not visit the office of Dr. under stress, explained the researchers.
Scientists from the University of Michigan scored 1 thousand 450 volunteers. They were divided into two groups. First all possible ways tried to relax before going to the doctor. The second listened to a historical lecture, and then read the article about influenza, cancer, herpes, HIV, and other disturbing things.
– The first group was more close to the condition. It is best to take in the information than the second because it was quiet people, – says the participant of the research group of Neil Hanson.
The researchers came to the conclusion that calm reduces attention to threatening information. If a nervous person will listen to the advice of a doctor, he can misinterpret the words of the specialist. Experts claim that to fully relax the person will be difficult, if you have a trip to the doctor. So I advise you to take a friend to the recorded recommendation or record the conversation on audio so you can listen.
