Depression is a normal response as part of our daily lives such as the loss of s job, the death of a love one, and illness. Over 30 million Americans suffer from depression and the amount is increasing in an alarming rate. Depression may be a mental health disorder that can affect the way you eat, sleep, and the way you feel about yourself. The mild case of depression can be defeated by a variety of self-care techniques. Others require the treatment of medication, such as antidepressant medications and psychotherapy that help to reduce and sometimes eliminate the symptoms of depression. According to the National Mental Health Association, one in every eight women can expect to experience clinical depression during their lifetime. In gender perspective, women are twice at risk to develop depression than men.
Women and depression
In an article of Why Women Experience Depression More Than Men, by Susan
Nolen-Hoeksema, Ph.D., Carla Grayson, Ph.D. & Judith Larson, Ph.D.,
the experts wrote that researchers have known for years that women
experience depression more often than men do, but the reason for this
gender difference has not been clear. A study published by researchers
provides some answers by showing how social conditions and personality
characteristics affect each other and contribute to the gender
differences in depressive symptoms.
Treatments in Homeopathy
1. Aurum metallicum
Aurum metallicum is renowned for its ability to cure the deepest
imaginable depressions: suicidal states by providing hope, feeling of
worthiness and self esteem.This type of person is usually idealistic and
goad oriented. It is very surprising to see that a single patient with a
lifetime of joyless existence bloom into happiness after aurum pays for
every hour of our years of study.
2. Ignatia Ignatia (also known as ignatia amara or iamara) originates
from the tincture of strychnos ignatia beans of a small tree native to
the Philippines containing a substantial amount of strychnine (used in
rat poison) and brucine (a bitter alkaloid similar to strychnine).
Iganatia relieves the depression caused by an event of grief and
3. Natrum Muriaticum
Natrum muriaticum is one of the most psychologically complex and
poignant remedies in our materia medica. There is an opposite
presentation in which the patient seems abnormally open and can discuss
even intimate aspects of his life, apparently not at all embarrassed.
When a loss or a serious rejection occurs the patient experiences
abnormally prolonged grief and depression. Natrum mutiaticum helps to
overcome the deep sorrow that people suffered in silence.
Sepia is a Homeopathic remedy that helps with bouts of depression from
loss of sunlight, but it can be differentiated from aurum by its grief,
fatigue, sarcasm and irritability aspects. Sepia is especially helpful
in treating depression caused by indifference, weepy, angry,
overwhelmed, exhausted and depression associated with menopause.
In external use, the fresh plant of pulsatilla is an irritant herb and
produces a benumbing sensation when chewed. It is a powerful herb in
treating people with signs of manic depression.
