Depression - There is hope

Feeling sad from time to time is a normal process that we all go through in life. Depending on the reasons for the sorrow, these feelings usually last for a few days and then go away. But when the sadness seems to overtake your life and prevent you from living fully, then it’s something to be concerned about. If you feel that your emotions are preventing you from doing your job, keeping you from getting a good night’s sleep, prevents you from eating properly or enjoying life, then it’s important that you seek assistance from trained professionals who can help you get through your emotions.

Depression, can be due to many factors. It could be from a death in the family or loss of a loved one; it can be from a breakup in a relationship that was unexpected or even expected but difficult to accept; it can be due a chemical imbalance in your body that just needs some balancing out; it could be from the day to day environment you find yourself in; it could be from having to deal with shorter days during the winter; for women, it could occur after their baby is born or even during the pregnancy. Whatever the reason or cause, everyone is different and everyone needs to have their depression treated in their own unique way.

Many have turned to anti-depressants or stimulating drugs to overcome the depression. This can be a cause for concern since many anti-depressants have side effects that are worse than the depression and can lead to heart problems and even death. In many cases, these drugs are habit forming and can require an increase in dose without much long lasting effect.

This is where Homeopathy and other holistic methods of treatment can step in to help relieve, if not get rid of, the depression that a person is experiencing.

In Homeopathy, there are a variety of safe remedies that can help with depression and its many symptoms without having the side effects like other forms of treatment. Since Homeopathy treats each individual as a unique person, a remedy is chosen based on the patient’s picture and is not a catch all for all patients like most anti-depressants and other drugs. Men and women feel depression in different ways so no two cases of depression will ever be the same.

Homeopaths have used remedies such as Ignatia, Aurum metallicum, Hypericum, Pulsatilla, Natrum muriaticum, Aconite, Carcinosinum, to name a few. There are many more that can be used depending on the patient picture. Depression is not something that should be overlooked and one should not wait the 2 or more years to be considered having clinical depression. As soon as you feel that something is not right, you should go and talk to someone who may be able to help.

Emotional upsets are common for everyone. It’s how we deal with those upheavals that let us know if we need to get a little help or we will get through it.

The sooner you get help, the faster you will be able to enjoy your life to the fullest again.
