Depression And Homeopathy

MD - Homeopathy, BHMS
Homeopath, Pune
Depression And Homeopathy

Depression can be referred to as a psychiatric dysfunction which is generally associated with a recurrent feeling of sadness, loneliness, disinterest in daily affairs and low self-confidence. Due to the stresses of the modern lifestyle and constant anxiety the occurrence of depression is on the rise and it is affecting more people around the world.

Love disappointment, loss in business, disharmony in the family, performance pressure, death of a loved one, some unfortunate events in life, Domination, Abuse sexual and physical are one of the main reasons of depression. Homeopathy lauds the benefit that it does not induce drug dependency and no side effects.

Causes

Depression can spring up because of hereditary factors, excessive substance abuse, hormonal imbalances, sudden shock or trauma and also anxiety. Depression tends to be chronic and can come back in timely intervals to hamper your life.

Symptoms

The symptoms of depression include loss of appetite, a recurrent feeling of exhaustion, tendencies of isolating oneself continuously, significant trouble while sleeping, abrupt mood swings, lack of concentration in daily affairs and recurrent feeling of melancholy.

Homeopathic Treatment for Depression

Homeopathy is one of the most popular holistic systems of medicine. The selection of remedy is based upon the theory of individualization and symptoms similarity by using holistic approach. This is the only way through which a state of complete health can be regained by removing all the sign and symptoms from which the patient is suffering. The aim of homeopathy is not only to treat depression but to address its underlying cause and individual susceptibility. As far as therapeutic medication is concerned, several medicines are available for depression treatment that can be selected on the basis of cause, condition, sensation and modalities of the complaints. For individualized remedy selection and treatment, the patient should consult a qualified homeopathic doctor in person. Some important remedies are given below for depression treatment:

  1. Sepia – This medication is useful for people who face recurrent episodes of sudden mood swings and feelings of isolation. If someone gets depressed with the slightest of the matters, Sepia can also be helpful.
  2. Aurum Metallicum – If someone undergoes the symptoms of recurrent suicidal tendencies, hopelessness and a lowered self-confidence, this preparation can be recommended.
  3. Cimicifuga – Cimicifuga can be really useful if you undergo the symptoms of severe headache and neck pains during depression along with intense episodes of desolation.
  4. Causticum – If someone suffers from the symptoms of memory loss, frequent weeping and the depression had occurred due to the loss of someone close, Causticum can be recommended.
  5. Phosphoric acid – If you suffer from the symptoms of appetite loss and social awkwardness, a prescribed dosage of phosphoric acid might help in the elimination of the symptoms.
  6. Kalium Phosphoricum – This is a very important medication as it is very effective at treating depression that occurs due to stress. People who are overworked or students who have over-studied and may have developed depression from of stress are greatly benefitted by this medication.

These are just a few of the commonly used Homeopathic remedies and are mentioned only to create awareness about the effectiveness of Homeopathic medicines for Depression. It is not advisable to resort to self-medication for any disease. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a homeopath.

You must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. Therefore no medicines are required. Mental disorder can be successfully treated with the help of awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve your problem. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

Sir I am suffering of mania or what I do not know I always thinks negative. Like I can't pass exam. I can't do job. I will become poor. I also thinks that I forgot every thing that I learnt. I think that I can not do anything and I am foolish than everyone. Everyone is intelligent than me. Some times I want to commit suicide but with a hope that one day I will become Intelligent, I stops. This has also effected my performance in studying. I used to mummer all the days and want to live alone.

Good Morning ~ Life isn't always pleasant or easy, but feeling constantly unhappy, or so unhappy you can't function, is a problem you can overcome. Depression can make you feel sad, mad, or empty and numb, but there's a lot you can do to change how you feel. The key to recovery is to start small and make daily investments in yourself. Full recovery takes time and can be a two-step forward one step backward process, but you can get there. What you can do Reach out and stay connected to supportive people Do things that make you feel good—even when you don’t feel like it Move vigorously during the day—don’t sit for more than an hour Learn about the mood-boosting benefits of omega-3 fats Get a daily dose of sunlight Challenge negative thinking

You are probably under some stress fro which I recommend that you seek the help of a counselor. In the meantime do some of these recommendations very faithfully: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food.

Dear, you must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please post a private question to me and I will help you with" effective learning" techniques. Take care.

Dear Ms. lybrate-user, I went through your query in detail and can understand what you must be going through in life. The symptoms that you have mentioned are definitely suggestive of depression. Feeling tired, lack of concentration, feeling sad, anxiety, sleep disturbances, headache are all symptoms of depression. You should consider getting yourself evaluated by a psychiatrist and accordingly initiate treatment. Medications ad psychotherapy will help you in getting over your symptoms and recover from depression. Although you have not mentioned details about the particular incidents, I am sure talking about them to your psychiatrist will help. Talk to someone close daily to vent out your feelings. You can also consider writing a diary daily. Start exercising daily. I do hope that you are soon able to recover from your symptoms. Best wishes.

Dear lybrate-user, Depression is a feeling we get, so we connect to our moods and emotions. Actually, it is related to Serotonin levels in the brain. These levels can go down or up, depending on many factors. Depression has grades. You can grade it by answering questions from a standard tool. If it is above a particular level, medication is required. These medicines bring the levels to normal within 3-4 weeks. They do not cause any addiction. If you are really serious about treatment, pl consult a psychiatrist and also a counselor. The cause-effect relationship can be very well understood by these methods Best wishes.

Dreams can never predict future. Dreams are just a projection of feelings and ideas in the" unconscious" part of your brain. You are basically unaware of those feelings. You need not feel guilty about having such a dream too, because these are never under your control. Take care. Have a good relaxing sleep daily. If you still face any problems consult me online or a psychiatrist near by for counseling or treatment thereof.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. Take care.

Dear User I can understand how embarrassing it feels. But Parkinson's may be associated with dementia and behavioural changes. Its not that he suddenly lost his character. Instead this a manifestation of illness that needs assessment and treatment by a neuropsychiatrist.

Dear , Anger and temper tantrums are always the after effects of stressful life. You must be stressed in your office or home. Naturally your stress takes its toll as emotional outbursts. Your family members are also unable to understand you. Anger management therapy and meditation will be suitable for you. You may ask a private question to me. I will help you. Take care.

Hello lybrate-user, Thanks for sharing your problem. I see you are on medication. I think Tenzin, firstly you have to create a schedule for yourself, the thoughts in your mind will fight with you to procrastinate. However, you need to make a conscious decision of keeping one goal in mind which you follow religiously everyday. You are unable to remember because of the mind clogging, too many thoughts running through your mind. So you need thought management. I would recommend you to take Cognitive Behavioral Therapy which will help you with the management of thoughts which indeed will affect your behavior.

Hello, I started to smoke three months back and now daily it has been like an habit. I initially started just taking one puff but right now I'm smoking daily, I wanna quit can some one help me?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
This is how nearly everyone gets into the habit of smoking or any other habit. Now that you are in it, it is good you want to get out of it.You must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here?s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world ? you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.
