Anxiety, or fear and worry, can happen to anyone from time to time. It’s not unusual to experience anxiety before a big event or important decision. Feeling down or having the blues now and then is also normal. But, chronic anxiety and clinical depression can be debilitating and lead to irrational thoughts and fears that interfere with your daily life. Severe or ongoing feelings of depression and anxiety can be a sign of an underlying mental health disorder. Anyone who experience loss of interest or no longer finding pleasure in activities or hobbies, has persistent feelings of sadness, anxiety, or emptiness, feels hopeless or pessimistic, anger, irritability, or restlessness, all of this emotions shouldn’t been ignored and the person need to seek help from a healthcare provider.
Homeopathy has a holistic approach and offers a natural, safe and gentle treatment. While homeopathy can be considered in case of mild anxiety and stress, it is often not the main line of treatment for severe anxiety disorders. Homeopathy should be considered as a complementary treatment, rather than the mainstream approach. Please find below a panic attack, anxiety and depression case successfully treated with homeopathy.
Clinical case: Anxiety and depression – homeopathic treatment
The condition started on March 1, 2013, when the person took part on a street open-air concert. It was pretty crowded and she experienced a panic attack. Panic attacks are sudden, unreasonable feelings of fear and anxiety that cause physical symptoms like a racing heart, fast breathing and sweating. Some people become so fearful of these attacks that they develop panic disorder, a type of anxiety disorder. She didn’t do anything about this at the time, however she was very worried about her health. One month later, another panic attack happened, whit no apparently reason. Now, she was worried enough and the patient visited a specialist. She was under medical treatment for a while with no result, why she turned to homeopathy.
At the moment of the visit the patient had the following symptoms: general weakness with a “melting” and dying feeling; she feels despair, being afraid she will never recover. She feels an inner trembling in her body. Health related anxiety is hard to control and a huge fear of death interferes with her daily live activity. Everything is even worst when she is alone, that why she never leaves home by herself. To feel less anxious she needs always someone. The patient is very sensitive person and she holds her emotions inside. She is afraid of the dark, heights, death, elevator and narrow spaces. Sometimes she feels like she has a feeling of a lump in her throat. She has bad nights and hardly falls asleep, easily wakening up at night. Few years ago, she had a bad car accident, which scared her very much, being in the 7th month of pregnancy she was scared for her and her child’s life.
She also has short-lasting headache, in the temporal region, felt as if “a red-hot knife is thrust into the skull”. This condition periodically aggravates, with a high blood pressure 180/90 mm Hg, and huge fear of imminent death. During the last three months, she lost 10 kg. She is a thirsty person, drinking water in small sips, experiencing dry mouth. Also, she complained about having dry stools, once in two days.
After case analysis, the homeopathic remedy Aconitum 200CH was prescribed.
