Homoeopathy and Mental Health
"Mind" is considered as the sixth perceptive organ of man; rather, all other organs perceive only after any thought or idea is processed and verified by mind.
Due to modern day stress and strain, almost all physical ailments are aptly correlated to the imbalance on mental plane. There may be mild psychoneurosis like hypochondriasis; i.e., over-reaction to negligible conditions, for example, a person might fear a heart attack by mere mild chest pain because of any other reason or there may be an Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, i.e., a person compulsorily does some act which may be foolish to do otherwise. If he is not allowed to do what he is doing, then he becomes furious or depressed. Depression in itself is emerging as a major health problem now- a- days.
Homoeopathy believes that, overall health of a person is a homeostasis between mind, body and soul. The physical personality and mental personality are equally important while treating any condition. Rather, Homoeopathy believes that it is not the disease to be treated, but the person as a whole. Because, just getting the investigation reports devoid of any abnormality is not enough but the person should feel on par with the surroundings. That's why the patients getting treated by Homoeopathy often tell us that they are getting relieved of their mental anguish too apart from physical well being.
Unprompted decisive powers, over-reactive or over passive nature, Adjustment difficulties, indifference to the happenings in the surrounding, over possessiveness, pusillanimity (excess miserliness), hypervehemance (excess anger), insomnias (lack of sleep), unnecessary stresses, phobias etc. etc. are the ailments which though feel minor at times take possession of individuals by engulfing them. These often lead to one or more physical ailments. Here Homoeopathy plays a pivotal part in helping patient regain his or her lost harmony.
After collecting the history of actual facts, a Homoeopath differentiates between factual and imaginary aspects and decides the future line of treatment.
There are remedies like Natrum mur, Lycopodium, Pulsatilla, Acid fluor, Thuja, and many more that describe the personality of a patient individually. It will not be an exaggeration to say that Homoeopathic Materia Medica is a vast storehouse of different types of personalities and their respective troubles.
When an expert hand intelligently uses these medicines, they cause a revolution in the patient's overall development and well being!
So, be devotees of Homoeopathy and master your bodily equilibrium!
