How to overcome your fear of heights

(HealthDayNews) -- There are desensitization programs to help people get over allergies, but have you ever heard of one to help people overcome phobias?

Here's a method to help people overcome their fear of heights without leaving the ground.

According to the Journal of Behavioral Therapy and Experimental Psychiatry, all you have to do is look downward through the wrong end of a pair of binoculars. That makes things look farther away. You'll get used to the sensation of height, and after a few sessions you should lose your fear.
