I am 21 And the stress level is so high. Do I need any medicine or any antidepressant?

You need to identify what you mean by stress: usually it has to do with the mishandling of feelings. If you are not expressing your feelings of sadness, anger, fear, and happiness too, in an appropriate manner, you will be under a lot of stress and pressure. I suggest you meet with a counselor immediately and if that person feels that you need medication s/he will send you to consult with a psychiatrist. Sometimes you may not need medication at all and with good counseling you could turn your life around and learn to live healthily. You may be going through some emotional disturbances and need guidance and some training to handle your feelings better or differently.

8 Best Homeopathic Medicines To Treat Depression!

8 Best Homeopathic Medicines To Treat Depression!

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. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a specilized homeopath.

Hi, I have a question, I think a friend of mine is going through depression. The cause for the same is she takes all the things negative on herself. This she is doing for years but never reflected but now this since she is thinking that nothing is happening as she wants, this negative behavior is reflected in her talks. I think this is a kind of depression only. Kindly let me know if this is a depression or only a behavior which will get resolved when the things get in her favor.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Right now there are no signs of depression but over time she can develop it. To me she is sounding pessimistic and it may be because of the reason you mention. She should ideally examine herself and see why she is experiencing so many failures in life. How much is she the cause? Very often we precipitate negative happenings towards us by certain factors in our self. If she is suffering from a rejection issue from some events in childhood, she could be living and sending out signals to attract the same. Kindly get in touch with me for some literature on this that could help her get out of the failure mode and shift to the success mode. With so many failures I myself will be affected. But if she can prevent the failures by certain adaptations, she could turn the events in her life to great levels of achievement.

I don't feel like eating and can't sleep whole night. My mood swings. I always get angry and can't concentrate in anything. Always tired and weak feeling.

Homeopath, Secunderabad
If you want to really change then there can nothing holding you back. Just begin from where you are. Take one idea and start working on it. Write down all that you want to change and develop a plan/strategy so that you can confidently move ahead even if the mood swings a little! Have faith in yourself as you are going to appreciate yourself for all the struggle that you are taking now to change yourself. You will enjoy this challenge if you take it in a light spirit. Do not worry if you fail sometimes. Just be aware and learn from your mistakes. Commit yourself to excellence in whatever you do. Eat only healthy food ( more of fruits and vegetables ), exercise everyday for 1 hour and you will start feeling good soon. Sleep for 7-8hrs daily. Avoid all bad habits and learn or do some creative work that will boost your self-esteem. All the best.

I can understand your problem and the guilt feeling resulting from it. But do not loose heart. There is a way out. Every problem in this world has a definite solution. Do believe in that. Your negative thought about your own family members is only a learned behavior, and anything learned can be unlearned, if you have a strong will to change. Let me give you 3 practical suggestions. 1. I think you are not married yet, and if I am right, get married as soon as possible. It may bring down your negative thoughts to a substantial extent. 2. Stay away from your home at least for a year (more is better) on grounds of any job or work, in a distant location. 3. Everyday, sit in a quite place with closed eyes, actively imagine that you are interacting with your family members one by one with appropriate relationships, i. E. Behaving a good brother with your sister and a good son with your mother and so on. Follow these suggestions with full confidence you will certainly find a way out. Nothing is impossible. Hope for the best.

Figs are mainly made of polyunsaturated fats, which add healthy calories to your diet. Also, figs contain a good amount of carbohydrates that will help you gain weight. Soak five to six dried figs in water overnight. The next day, eat them in two parts during the day. Do this daily for about a month. Alternatively, soak two dried figs overnight in milk and eat it before breakfast. Follow this routine for two months.

I lost somebody close last year and since then feel very depressed and prefer keeping to myself all the time. Please help me.

What you are going through is greaving. Loosing loved one is not easy to deal with emotionally. I am sorry for your loss. When you are greaving, your mind is continuously engaged in sad and disturbing thoughts and feeling of loss and perhaps guilt. When sadness over powers you it is difficult to feel any other feelings. Even feeling happy makes you feel guilty and uneasy. Slow but effective way to over cone sadness is to engage yourself in some neutral activities such as cleaning. Walking or readjng a light book. Once you try that for few days you may be ready for following things. There are few things I would like you to try. 1. When you feel sad. Feel the feeling of sadness fully. You may close your eyes and let that sadness flow through your mind and body. If tears flow let them flow. Cry it out. Feeling what you feel fully and totally is healing. Once you feel your sadness fully. You might feel the lightness in your heart. Feel that too and say out loud. How wonderful! and engage your mind remembering some good qualities and good times you spent with the person you are missing. 2. Regular simple breath awareness meditation also help manage your loss. 3. You may also l write daily 3 to 5 things you are grateful to every morning. These things could be as simple as having a bed to sleep and food to eat. Affirm what you write and add new thing in your list for 7 to10 days. If you are not feeling any change over next 2 weeks or if you lack motivation to initiate and maintain above activities feel free contact me and we could work together for few weeks to months to reverse your cycle and help you appreciate what you have. Hope this helps wishing you very best.

Dear lybrate user. Please understand that marriage is not a contract. Two different personalities are compelled to stay to together sharing everything. Naturally there will be differences. These differences and settlements are the cprner stone of any happy and peaceful family. I suggest family counseling to you and your wife. Things can be settled well. Take care.

Keep a diary with you and record in what situations or in presence of whom you experience anxiety. You can trace the anxiety provoking situations and a better understanding of your own emotions. When you become aware of your emotions, you will be able to manage them in a constructive manner. Regular practice of pranayam yoga will help you to better manage physiological arousal during anxieties and thereby reduce your tension level.

I am 59 now. Since last 8 years, flat just above me there are 11 heads including 5 teens are residing and running hammering making sound of utensils etc , causing mental agony. Consulting so many one dear one advised me to feel always immediately after entering into the residence that some one is doing such a nuisance. This action has given me some relaxation. Now due to this I feel unrest and heaviness in heart as if I have been facing some sort of interview for job. Please advise

Since she was a sexual partner, your obsession with your ex-partner is normal. You need to ignore this thought with CBT.
