If you want to know how to treat depression naturally then one of the best ways is to try to remember when you first became depressed. The word depression is far too vague and covers a multitude of causes.
Let me give you an example. When someone receives a sudden and life threatening shock they may never fully recover. The result of the shock – intense fear – is meant to release adrenalin so you can escape from the dangerous situation rapidly. The action of fleeing or fighting tends to be curative.
It’s when the shock comes and you can’t do anything, that the long term effects become apparent. Let me give you an example. A soldier witnesses his best friend blown to pieces beside him, in combat. He must remain in the situation and continue his job. He suffers shock, loss and grief, but can’t deal with it.
Later, he suffers panic attacks and insomnia. These continue unabated. He is diagnosed with depression and put on anti-depressants. This makes no difference.
Finally he consults with a professional homeopath, who gives him an appropriate homeopathic medicine . Immediately he sees an improvement. The first night he sleeps like a baby. Over the next week, his panic attacks lessen in intensity by about half. The following week, they are almost gone.
Homeopathy deals very effectively with the shock and fright as well as the long term after effects. Earthquake victims, tsunami survivors, even those witnessing a car accident can suffer from the after effects..
Grief is another emotion that is often grouped under the title of depression. The loss of a loved one can have a profound and lasting effect on some. You can’t do anything about the loss, there’s no escape. If you can’t grieve, then you can get stuck. By allowing the natural expression of grief, you are letting it go. By holding it in, you are holding on to it.
Homeopathy has a wonderful track record of resolving grief whether it is of recent origon or long past. That’s not to say you don’t still miss the departed one. But now you can get on with life. Now it is no longer all consuming.
A feeling of isolation or abandonment, can also make some feel desolate and depressed. This may start with a mother giving her baby up for adoption. The baby, and possibly the mother, never fully recovers from this abandonment and similar situations keep repeating themselves throughout their lives.
Homeopathy can reverse this underlining feeling of abandonment.
So in learning how to cure depression, you need to know what your unique cause for the depression was. This is often too complicated and painful to manage on your own. In which case a professional homeopathic consultation can help you.
