Homeopathy for Emotional Issues
Emotional disorders like depression and anxiety are symptoms that respond very well to homeopathy. Some examples of other symptoms that respond well are:
phobias; panic attacks; post traumatic stress; generalized anxiety; low self-esteem; sleep disturbances; negative thoughts; obsessive compulsive disorder
One of the strengths of homeopathy is how it deals with emotional issues. Depression is an emotion we can all identify with. Disappointment, loss, stress or frustration can put anyone in a temporary tailspin. However one is considered clinically depressed if four of the following persist for more than a month: sadness, decreased appetite, sleep disturbances, fatigue, low self-esteem, excessive guilt, decreased ability to concentrate, indecision and thoughts of death. Besides psychological causes, there can also be a biological basis for depression. Homeopathic remedies address deep underlying causes or biological abnormalities.
Homeopathy can help change long-standing patterns of anxiety, increase self-confidence and facilitate positive emotional states. I work with you to find out when and how your symptoms began and the exact nature of them, in order for homeopathic treatment to stimulate your system to work through the underlying causes to bring resolution to your symptoms, whether acute or more chronic.
The homeopathic prescriptions you are given take into account both the specific symptoms you are suffering as well as your general constitutional type, including any characteristics such as likes and dislikes, temperature control, and other individual factors that reflect you as an individual, in order to stimulate your system to throw off the disturbance.
Ours has been called the Age of Anxiety with many reasons for insecurity and doubts. Panic disorders with a sense of impending doom or dread can last minutes or hours and physical symtoms can include stomach upsets, palpitations and sweating. Phobias are also common taking the form of specific fears such as social phobia, agoraphobia, etc. OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder) has drives, impulses and ritual behaviour that must be carried out in order to ease impending anxiety. Another type of anxiety is Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome (PTSS) which can happen after a car accident, witnessing or being part of a violent crime, or any other of the shocking or violent experiences encountered in today’s world. The most common however is generalized anxiety with an overwhelming accumulation of everyday cares, worries and anticipations and the physical symptoms that go with it. One of the strengths of homeopathy is how is deals with emotional problems of all types.
