Psychological disorders pose one of the biggest health challenges today. According to one study, one out of five suffers from psychological disorders. The trend is rising. And the reasons are not far from us. Our society is changing fast and the demands are challenging. These demands call for in-depth acceptance and constant adjustments. Everything happening at personal, social, professional or day to day life has profound psychological impact. Job stress and poor interpersonal skills at both social and family level are beginning to show its effect. Modes of communication are rising but true communication is lacking. More and more people feel misunderstood, alone and unwanted. Emotions are unsatisfied and mind management skills are lacking. Result is obvious. Psychological complaints are rising alarmingly. And to add there are many organic and functional disorders. Allopathic medicine has tried to help but has many drawbacks. It can modify symptoms in some cases but the results are unsatisfactory and it tends to make the person less functional because of its side effects. The world needs a system which has safe and effective treatment for such complaints. The answer lies in homeopathy. It is the most safe and effective treatment method of psychological, psycho somatic and psycho sexual complaints.
Homeopathy has given high emphasis on psychology and personality of the person to be treated of any physical disease or psychological complaint. It takes mind and body as a complete whole. Its treatment of psychological complaints is positive i.e. it not only relieves complaints but also makes the person more functional to become more adaptable and better equipped to handle stress of life. Homeopathy understands and values minute feelings and also physical impact of emotions. It does not ridicule strange looking feelings and sensations but takes them as important messages of inner health. It ‘cures’ the root cause of psychological complaint be it impact of grief, disappointment or discord in personal life. It can even resolve pent up emotions. It is said to restores the chemical imbalance in brain.
Hundreds of case reports have been published, in homeopathic journals of patients suffering from mental disorders who have been treated successfully with homeopathy. Even though some of the cases are inadequately presented for proper evaluation, many of these patients would meet criteria for a mental disorder according to the DSM-IV and would have been candidates for conventional pharmacotherapy. A case series of 120 patients with diagnosis of anxiety neurosis, phobias, psychosomatic disorders, or neurotic depression was published by Gibson et.al.(1953). Priestman (1951) described 20 cases of anxiety, phobias and hypochondriasis. Reichenberg-Ullman and Ullman (1996, 1999) have published books with series of patients with attention deficit hyperactivity disorders, depression, and behavior disorders.
At our clinic – Ethos Body & Mind Clinic, we have successfully treated cases of anxiety, depression, sleeplessness, mania, phobia, OCD, psycho sexual complaints like erectile dysfunction, psycho somatic complaints like migraine, Irritable Bowel Syndrome etc. It is equally suitable for acute episodes as well as long term maintenance. It can be used along with allopathic treatment to reduce its side effects and enhance wellbeing. The great thing about homeopathy is that it not only relieves psychological disorders but enhance positive mental health relieving subconscious psychological conflicts. It does not make the patient dull but enhance mental alertness & activity level. It is safe for all from new born, pregnant & feeding mothers to old people. It improves constitutional expression and gives robust health of body and mind.
It is time that world recognize the safe & effective curative power of homeopathy. All is needed is not to underestimate the power of small white pills. Homeopathy is pure science. It is unfortunate that some allopathic doctors, who have never studied the effects of homeopathy, try to dismiss homeopathy. This is because of prejudice, ignorance or because of their own selfish motives. But a doctor’s mission should be to try to help patient towards relief without any ego problem or selfishness. Homeopathy is not magic but has done wonders in treatment of physical diseases and psychological complaints. Some people feel homeopathy is too mild to act on big diseases. We have heard people saying that they have spent lakhs on investigation and treatment of such big diseases, what can these small pills can do. Homeopathy has proven cases of treating cancer, diabetes, hypertension, asthma, Alzheimer and also severe cases of depression, phobia, anxiety etc. And the results are not slow as told by some, these are faster than any other medicines. Some homeopathic doctors are also to be blamed as they use many medicines at a time to hide their lack of confidence. True homeopathic treatment is always with singular medicine in least possible medicine. (SIMILAR SINGULAR SMALLEST) Multiple medicines (Mixopathy as it is called) is not homeopathy and it only suppresses diseases. Innocent patients not knowing this feels that doctor has given them relief whereas infact he has suppressed the disease which will later on come back with more aggression in different form. Patients get fooled by this apparent relief but later suffer from major sickness. Homeopathy in its true form can help mankind a great deal if it is saved from ignorance of innocent patients and selfishness of both allopathic and mixopathy doctors.
Make homeopathy part of your life, it is safe, effective, not costly and proactive. It not only treats but improves health of body and mind to prevent chances of developing sickness.
