The most common complaints found in clinical practice nowadays, are depression and anxiety but emotional problems such as anger, frustration, loss of self confidence and guilt are also seen. You are more vulnerable to these difficulties, if you have an unsatisfactory upbringing but that does not mean that people with happy childhood do not suffer from emotional stress. Emotional problems are most easily recognized and accepted, when they are precipitated by an obvious event, such as bereavement, job loss or marital break down. For many women, asking for help is often far from easy but it is important not to suppress your feelings because this can pent up trouble for later.
Some women have the extra difficulty of living through a range of emotional pressures that depend to some extent on their hormone levels They may experience considerable emotional distress as a result of premenstrual syndrome , painful periods , pregnancy ,child birth or the menopause. Homoeopathy is particularly well suited in relieving emotional problems; symptomatic medicines will help in the minor ups and downs of life while constitutional treatment has a much wider range of action. The more serious emotional problems should only be treated with homoeopathy if there is medical supervision. If you are unfortunate enough to suffer from a psychiatric illness, you may still suffer from the same emotional problems as everyone else, and you may find that homoeopathy will help you
The homeopathic understanding of health is intimately connected to its understanding of the mind in general. Homeopaths don't separate the mind and body in the usual way; they generally assume that body and mind are dynamically interconnected and that both directly influence each other. This acknowledgement of the inter connecters of body and mind is not simply a vague, impractical concept. Homeopaths base virtually every homeopathic prescription on the physical and psychological symptoms of the sick person. Psychological symptoms often play a primary role in the selection of the correct medicine.
