Homeopathic remedies can help with Mental health problems.
This is evident when you think about a typical scenario involving a person suffering from anxiety.
This person makes an appointment with a physician.
The physician takes blood pressure and dives deep into his or her medical history.
More often than not an anti-anxiety drug is prescribed to the patient.
The physician would at no time during the exam try to determine what causes the anxiety.
A homeopathic doctor, on the other hand, tries to determine what type of remedy is best suited for the person mentioned above.
A homeopathic doctor takes not only a medical history but also a personal one.
Treating the person in his or her entirety enables the homeopath to find out what remedy might be the most effective.
These homeopathic doctors also treat illnesses such as:
- depression and
- post-traumatic stress disorder.
The doctor will ask questions to develop a complete picture of the patient’s emotional, mental, and physical state.
This is the essence of homeopathy.
Understanding the whole person gives the homeopathic doctor the means by which he can assess and determine how to correct the imbalance within the patient.
It is this imbalance which homeopaths feel are the cause of mental illness.
In traditional medicine, prescribing a drug only treats the symptom.
It does not treat the underlying cause.The illness remains while the symptoms are suppressed.
Homeopathy addresses the imbalance.
The homeopath does this by treating the whole person!
The remedies used to stimulate the patient’s mind and body to bring them into balance while, at the same time, eliminating the symptoms.
This form of treatment makes sense.
It allows the patient to address the problem head-on.
The remedies used are specific to the person.
The homeopathic doctor takes the time to find the one solution out of those available that compliments the person and is suited to treat the person’s illness.
The result is “like cures like.”
One such case involves a woman who suffers from severe anxiety.
Traditional medications are taking a toll, and she seeks advice from a homeopath.
He recommends she stop all medicines, and drink up to 64 ounces of water for three days to cut the toxins.
He then suggests that her condition is treated “systematically rather than symptomatically.”
He does this by setting up several appointments with him so that he can determine what remedy to use based on her medical and personal history.
This is the fundamental approach on how mental health is affected by homeopathic remedies.
There are some cases where homeopathic solutions can be used in conjunction with traditional medicine, mainly if the patient has severe symptoms.
But the bottom line is that the approach to mental health using homeopathy remedies is a viable alternative to the more conventional and potentially harmful medicines used today.
What are homeopathic remedies?
Homeopathic remedies are tiny doses of natural substances.
When you give them in a massive dose to a healthy person, they will cause the same symptoms you are trying to cure. A good example is Ipecacuhana – it’s made from the same root used in Ipecac syrup (which you give to induce vomiting).
Homeopathic remedies are taken either in solid or liquid form. Solid medications can be pellets, tablets or granules that are dissolved under the tongue. Another factor is that they are not addictive, unlike in the case of allopathic pills and syrups. Homeopathic remedies are diluted and potentized which creates and energetic medicine. For instance, a 6X potency is 1 part 1,000,000 of the original substance.

[Homeopathy] is a subject which makes me more wrath, even than does Clair-voyance: clairvoyance so transcends belief, that one’s ordinary faculties are put out of the question, but in Homœopathy common sense & common observation come into play, & both these must go to the Dogs, if the infinitesimal doses have any effect whatever. How true is a remark I saw the other day by Quetelet, in respect to evidence of curative processes, viz that no one knows in disease what is the simple result of nothing being done, as a standard with which to compare Homœopathy & all other such things.
Charles Darwin, in a letter to William Fox, September 4, 1850
