Depression(Depression,Mania,Bipolar Disorder) homeopathic treatment



Depression is a chronic, long lasting or recurring and treatable disorder, where the patient experiences sadness, worthlessness, loss of motive, loss of interest and/or hopelessness.

A depressive disorder is an illness that involves the mood and thoughts and in simple words can be expressed as persistent sad mood. Depression is not a character flaw or a sign of personal weakness and the suffering person can't make himself well by trying to snap out of it. Depression affects the way a person eats and sleeps, the way one feels about oneself, and the way one thinks about things.

Depression results from a complex, partly understood biochemical changes in the brain, which are influenced and supported by multiple causes inclusive of genetic trait, circumstantial factors, hormonal factors, socio-personal reasons, etc. Increased levels of brain chemicals called neurotransmitters, such as serotonin and nor-epinephrine are found to improve the state of depression.

Depression is much more common than we believe. However to get precise figures in terms of its prevalence is difficult as many of them go undetected and untreated. Women are twice more often affected with depression than men.

Not everyone who is depressed experiences all the symptoms listed below. Some people experience a few symptoms, some many. Severity of symptoms varies with individuals and also varies over time.

Do you feel sad tired worried all the day? And are these feelings lasting for more than few days? If yes than you could be suffering from depression. Although life is full of emotional ups and downs and such ?low feelings? are a part of common human experience

but when these feelings increase in duration and intensity and an individual is unable to function as usual, they take the form of an illness often called as Depression or Clinical Depression.

Causes for clinical depression

Causes for clinical depression incorporate a variety of biological, social and psychological factors. The various depressive disorders are:

  • Major Depressive Disorder also known as major depression, clinical depression, or unipolar depression. It is a serious medical condition that is persistent and can interfere considerably with an individual's ability to function. Clinical Depression symptoms include sad mood, loss of interest or pleasure in activities that were once enjoyed, change in appetite or weight, difficulty sleeping or oversleeping, physical sluggishness or restlessness, loss of vitality, feelings of worthlessness, inattentiveness, and recurrent thoughts of death or suicide. A diagnosis of major depressive disorder is made if a person has 5 or more of these symptoms and impairment in normal functioning every day.
  • Dysthymic Disorder is a chronic, low level depression that continues for years. It does not disable, but limits one from functioning well or from feeling good. Dysthymia usually begins early in adult life and lasts for several years. When the onset is later in life, the disorder is often the consequence of a distinct depressive episode associated with grief or other evident stress.
  • Mood Disorder is due to a general medical condition causing symptoms of depression.
  • Substance-Induced Mood Disorder is a condition caused by the use or abuse of substances such as drugs, alcohol, medications, or exposure to toxins.
  • Seasonal Affective Disorder is a condition that affects a person during specific times or seasons of the year. Typically the depressive symptoms of this condition begin during fall or winter, and end when spring arrives. At other months during the year a person's mood will be normal, or at least will not meet criteria for clinical depression.
  • Post Partum Depression is experienced by as many as 80% of new mothers, and which normally subsides without treatment. Before a definitive diagnosis of PPD is made, depression caused by a medical condition such as thyroid dysfunction or anemia must be ruled out.
  • Serious emotional disturbance (SED) is a term used for depression in children that exhibit any of a wide variety of behavioral disorders or mental health problems. These problems may be due to sociological or environmental causes such as abuse, neglect, crime, poverty, or emotional, neurotic, life-adjustment issues, or with neurobiological brain disorders.

Homeopathy Approach of Depression:

Homeopathy as a treatment for depression is safe, effective and potentially permanent. Homeopathy is a system of medicine that attempts to stimulate the body to recover its own natural balance and health. Homeopathy has long recognized the psychological origin of somatic symptoms. Homeopathy always considers a patient's mental framework in all cases and remedies are given acting at the level of mind and body together, thus eliminating the disease. No other system of medicine has such an outstanding approach of dealing with the mind-body disorders with distinct therapeutic agents. Homeopathic remedies are capable of influencing the state of mind. They can specifically act to alleviate emotional disturbance such as excessive anxiety, irritability, insecurity, obsessive traits, jealousy, suspicion (paranoid) fears, depression, neurosis etc. By relieving the emotions such as above, homeopathic remedies bring about harmonious state of health. Thus homeopathy demonstrates the possibility of the highest goal of medicine, the therapy for the person rather than for the disease alone. After taking homeopathic medicines, the person experiences a general feeling of well being. He/She develops a positive attitude to life and enjoys life to the fullest. The lost vitality returns and he or she begins to develop interest in everything they do. Dependency on sedatives and anti-depressants is also reduced. Homeopathy helps competently in various forms of depressions. Consulting a homeopath in time can often eliminate the need for strong drugs like anti-depressants which have lots of side effects and is habit forming.
