According to Satinder Singh Madhok depression is a mental health disorder causing significant impairment in life because of low mood, isolation from society and lack of interest in day to day activities. The persistent feeling of sadness is its major symptom with changes in behaviour, sleep or appetite.
The main stream of treatment is talking to patients or medications. Research suggest that medications normalize or stabilize the mind. Medication is allopathic treatment / homeopathic treatment/ ayurvedic treatment or simply alternate line of therapy. Anti-depressants used in allopathic treatment. However, its long-term use has many side effects on body. Homeopathy has a part to play in treatment of depression. There many homeopathic treatments to treat depression but you must consult with your doctor to make sure that you being treated for rightly diagnosed illness. Also, severe depression should not be taken lightly as it might need immediate allopathic treatment.
Satinder Singh Madhok says homeopathy can reduce anxiety or depression to a great extent. Menninger clinic is a world-renowned mental health care centre and its founder was originally a homeopath. He got encouraging results from his treatment. Homeopaths generally suggest individualized homeopathic remedies to attain better long-term stable results and it is as effective and safer than any other allopathic treatment. A study conducted on 91 patients with depression were asked to choose between homeopathic medicine and fluoxetine( Procaz 20 mg/day) for eight weeks. The results were more or less same. That shows homeopathic medicine is as effective as allopathic treatment.
Jonathan Davidson, a professor of psychiatry at Duke University conducted study of adults suffering from depression, social phobia or panic disorders. He found that 60 percent of people responded favourably to homeopathic treatment. It’s safer and has fewer side effects than conventional drugs. A non-randomised trial considered by reviewers suggested the combination of Cognitive behavioural therapy and homeopathy. It is more effective than placebo or any other treatment alone. In fact, allopathic treatment attempts to attack natural defensive system of body with serious irreversible(sometimes) side effects. Whereas homeopathic treatment works on eradicating the root cause of illness keeping natural defence system intact. It offers excellent treatment for depression in early stages. Homeopathy can work on your personality traits that has stopped due to environmental stress.
Taking deep breaths, realizing that your brain is playing tricks on you, positive self-talks, focussing on positivity and meaningful activities will help combat depression. As far as homeopathy is concerned, it might take few weeks or few years to feel better. The whole thing revolves around trust and bonding with your doctor and taking a positive approach towards line of treatment. So, the problem is curable and its very much in your hands! Only takeaway is: choose a healthier way of treatment with less side effects but it should surely work towards curing the people.
