Plutophobia (from Pluto, the Roman god of wealth) is the fear of wealth. People suffering plutophobia would not want any money, while more severe sufferers would live away from the family and society. This fear can often be triggered due to the fear of losing money. Symptoms of plutophobia include breathlessness, extreme sweating, nausea, dry mouth, feeling sick, shaking, heart palpitations, inability to talk or think clearly, a fear of dying or changing into mad, a sensation of detachment from reality or a full blown nervousness attack. Treatment Options for plutophobia include hypnotherapy, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), and energy psychology, which combines the advantages of the above treatment therapies.
