Homeopathic Remedies for Depression

MD - Homeopathy, BHMS

Depression is a psychiatric disorder that is characterized by constant feelings of sadness, low self-esteem and loss of interest in daily affairs. Depression is most likely caused by hormonal imbalances, genetic problems, drug addiction and grief.

Depression can be characterized by its symptoms:
1. You will experience constant feeling of sadness
2. There may be sudden outbursts of anger
3. You may have difficulties in concentrating and executing various tasks
4. Constant feeling of tiredness
5. Loss of appetite
6. Changes in weight
7. Social withdrawal
8. Difficulties in sleeping at night

Homeopathy focuses on treating disorders by rooting out the cause of the disease rather than just treating the symptoms. Homeopathic treatments also do not cause any side effect to the body. The various remedies that are used to treat depression are -
1. Causticum
It is used to treat symptoms of depression that occurs after losing someone. It can also help in episodes of frequent crying, mental dullness and forgetfulness.

2. Arsenicum album
This remedy is used to treat excessive worrying. Usually people who worry about not meeting their expectations benefit most from this remedy.

3. Aurum metallicum
This remedy is used to treat symptoms of suicidal thoughts, despair and low self-esteem. These symptoms may aggravate during colder months.

4. Cimicifuga
This treatment is recommended if you feel extremely upset and gloomy. If you face symptoms of neck pain and headaches during depression, then this remedy might help you.

5. Phosphoric acid
If you face symptoms of introversion and loss of appetite, this remedy should work wonders.

6. Sepia
This remedy is recommended when you face symptoms of loneliness, anger and are easily disturbed. It may also cure symptoms of digestive disorders during depression.

7. Pulsatilla nigricans
Pulsatilla nigricans is used to treat symptoms of whining, jealousy and mood disorders. It is usually recommended for women who have depression along with menopause or puberty.

8. Kali phosphoricum
This is used to treat symptoms of emotional stress, lack of concentration and fatigue resulting from depression.

A note of caution: even though the names of the medicines have been listed above, still it is advisable to consult a trained homeopathic practitioner as the potency and dosage of the medicine will differ from person to person and can only be decided by the doctor.

My Wife is a housewife and I am working in IT sector at Noida. Me and wife are living happily in Noida from the past 2 years and then we have decided to have a baby for which we come to know that my wife is suffering from fibroids problem because of which she will be on medication for one year with a lot of problems and finally she conceives delivered a cute baby girl. Again we came back to noida. Me and wife lived happily here but after 3 months she started complaining about dizziness, lack of concentration sleep etc. Again I consult this to doctor and they told me that your wife is suffering from depression and started her medication for this including medication like: Venlor XR, Mirtaz, Etilaam, Arpizol etc. She is on medication from the past 4 months but from the past 1 week she is still complaining that she is feeling suffocated at home and mainly in the after to evening but she feels better outside. Hence, request you to please suggest me some good advice so that I may start to live a better life now as I am living alone here at Noida and no one is there to help us nor here the people are socializing. Please please please help me. I will be highly greatful to you all if you get me out of this situation. Help Me.

Hello, welcome to lybrate. Com I can understand your concerns. All the problems you have mentioned are due to stress related hormonal disturbances. The best cure for it is to make her join a yoga or meditation classes. It will help to restore balance of the hormones inside and within few months she wouldn't feel the need of medicine. Also, the housewives feel themselves as worthless. That feeling also creates lot of internal disturbances. Make her feel respect ful and convince her to practice her hobbies and interests. It will help to elevate her mood and positivity. Ask her to take a walk of ten minutes before seeping. It will help in better absorption of hormones. This hormonal disturbance is a vicious circle. You treat one and the problem will erupt. Best bet is to make lifestyle changes and will definitely make you feel better. Keep up your care. All the best.

Loss of interest, decreased concentration and attention, feeling low and disturbed sleep or appetite are some of the signs of depression. Consult a psychiatrist who will assess you in detail. If you are feeling suicidal or hopeless, seek professional help immediately. Try some relaxation techniques like yoga, meditation and deep breathing. Indulge in hobbies. Spend time with people close to you.

Dear lybrate user, sex is a physical urge/need. It helps in emotional connect as well. Having good sexual relations with your partner will keep you both connected emotionally and committed to each other. But sex is not a daily chore, for which you can have a fixed time or interval. Hence there is no hard and fast rule for having or not having sex on daily basis. A couple can enjoy sex when they both feel the urge and are ready physically and emotionally. The frequency depends on their mutual need and capacity. Sex is also not just a physical activity. It is a way to connect and develop bond with your partner, way to seek and express love to each other. So do not worry about the frequency. What is more important is that both the partners need to be ready for it. And the feeling/urge needs to come from within. I think it would be very helpful if you seek pre-maital conselling for either both or at least you can talk to a counsellor. There are many aspects to married life, which you need to understand before marriage to have a successful marriage. Good luck.

This is a psychological problem. I have performed poorly in class 12 examinations. I am very much depressed about it. I know its my fault. My family life is complicated. I could not sleep at nights due to frustration but still I try to be strong and think positive and move forward in life. But the main problem is my parents are always torturing and bullying me whenever they are getting the chance. I have had mental breakdowns but still they will not understand. I cannot breathe freely. They are always harassing me. I have tried to make them understand my problems but they are not interested. I have no one to share my sorrows and griefs and day by day I am breaking down mentally. I just have no idea what to do. All my efforts to make my parents understand have failed. My self confidence is now down to negative values due to this onslaught of my parents. Please try to understand. I really tried everything I could.

Dear lybrate-user. Welcome to lybrate. You are disappointed, distressed and lack interest in life. I do not know much about your parents and their attitude and behavior. Therefore I cannot comment on them. I can talk to you. I think you should change your attitude. Suppose, you are getting employed and your boss is always harassing and bullying you, what will you do? apply that situation here. Change your attitude. Take care.

Hi I am 30 years old. I am highly educated and talented and organized. However, I am finding it difficult to focus on work or applying for new jobs. I feel good doing things I like, but things such as office work, I keep postponing. I cannot focus/concentrate and I fell I am lagging behind the competition. I keep setting targets and push myself to finish a task, but failing to do most of the times (not because of capability, but willingness and concentration). What is my problem? is it any medical condition? will you be able to help me?

You are being treated for a serious condition and must periodically get the medication reviewed. I am sure you are one of those who has not combined medication with therapy. This can make it difficult for you to recover well. Do meet with a counselor and develop certain coping skills and techniques which can substantiate the medication well for faster recovery.

Dear, stress is simply a reaction to a stimulus that disturbs our physical or mental equilibrium. In other words, it's an omnipresent part of life. A stressful event can trigger the? fight-or-flight? response, causing hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol to surge through the body. A little bit of stress, known as? acute stress? can be exciting? it keeps us active and alert. But long-term, or? chronic stress? can have detrimental effects on health. You may not be able to control the stressors in your world, but you can alter your reaction to them. I need to know, what are the causes with which you are stressed? once you know the reason, you will be able to adjust with it with some tips and tricks. Please let me know the details. Take care.

You better consult a good homoeopath for this. Because depressed patients need to be cured as a person.Not as a patient to the doctor.This may happen to you may be because of you may not be able to handle loads of work together.Or may be another reason.

It is likely that there is a non-cardiac cause for this. Angiography may be done to rule out even a remote possibility of heart disease, and you can go ahead with it. If it is normal, then a psychiatrist consultation will be needed. In the meantime, get a thyroid profile and complete hemogram done (if not already done). If they are okay and angiography is normal, and you are cleared by the cardiologist, anti-anxiety medicines such as paroxetine or escitalopram or propranolol may prove very useful to you. These are not sleeping pills and will not make you drowsy. Take care!

Smoking addiction is treatable condition. But, it can only be attempted when you beloved family member is motivated. Elaboration about the side-effects of smoking should help in this regard. To start with, he/she can attempt to decrease the amount of use by himself/herself. Your psychiatrist will help you subsequently.
