Depression – Treatment
Thirty-five-year-old Sunita was brought to us by her husband with depression for over five years; she was on anti-depressants ever since. She was listless, not interested in any activity, and would sit near the window, gazing at the horizon for hours. She was also aloof towards her husband and their two children. When we analysed her case, we found that she had developed depression following surgery, which involved the removal of her uterus, because of a tumour. Since the ovaries were also removed along with the uterus, she developed hormonal imbalance, a ‘feeling of a void’ and, subsequently, depression.
We prescribed her an appropriate homeopathic remedy, based on her listless indifference towards her loved ones, coupled with her hormonal imbalance.
When she came for one of her follow-ups after five months with her husband, she was a changed woman. She had started, as her husband confirmed, taking interest in her daily activities and was more loving and caring towards her family.
Most individuals with depression have common symptoms, but these symptoms come about as a result of different causes.
The homeopathic remedy Aurum metallicum (Aurum met.)that it is prepared from the metal gold is used to treat mental disorders such as depression, which may often lead to suicidal thoughts.
The homeopathic remedy Ignatia is used to treat depression and anxiety, usually the kind that takes us by surprise or shock, like the death of a loved one or losing your job.
While treating depression, the likely ‘cause’ of what could have possibly led to depression often helps your homeopathic doctor in choosing the right homeopathic remedy.
Homeopathy, diagnoses the type of depression a person is experiencing, not just the problem by its name alone; it looks at each person holistically as a completely unique individual. This is not merely based on symptoms experienced during the illness, but also on one’s personality or temperament, besides the likely cause of the health concern.
