HOMEOPATHY FOR ANXIETY AND DEPRESSION REMEDIES. NATRUM MURIATICUM TO HELP YOU TO MOVE ON.

Grief is a process of healing, and homeopathy can be very helpful in allowing us to navigate the process of depression or anxiety. As a homeopath, I have treated many people for emotional trauma and grief and I find that is one of the most rewarding parts of my job, to be able to treat my patients and lift them to a higher level of emotional health. In my practice, Natrum muriaticum is one of the remedies I use more frequently for depression, and I tend to use a dosage of two times per week for chronic grief.

Grief is something that we can all relate to at one point or another, we all have had some kind of experience with it: the death of a loved one, the loss of a friendship, the loss of a job or wealth or feeling emotionally hurt in any way.

​In the present world, grief, anxiety and depression are seen as a state of weakness if they last more than a few months, therefore most people try to quickly get over them.

​However, this can very often be counterproductive as the person has not been able to deal with the feelings and emotions in an appropriate way.

GRIEF, HOW LONG IS TOO LONG? HOMEOPATHIC REMEDIES FOR DEPRESSION

The stages of grief are a universal experience that Elisabeth Kubler-Ross first proposed in the  1969 book “Death and Dying”.  

Through these stages, our mind spends a relative amount of time trying to deal with the feelings and emotions that arise as we move towards a resolution and, finally, acceptance.

The homeopathic remedies selected here may cover more than one stage and are not exclusive to any particular stage.

For dealing with anxiety after severe trauma or grief, these other remedies, more specific for anxiety will help bring relief as you navigate the process. 

As we move through the stages of grief, we will move from one homeopathic remedy to the next. For instance, a person may be doing well on a remedy for a few months but suddenly, the progression is halted, and another aspect of the case emerges by enquiring further.

It is important to understand that in a process like this, more than one remedy will be indicated to work on the patient’s emotions and that the help of a homeopath to unravel those layers is very important. 

It is always advisable to work with a homeopath for deep emotional problems such as depression, as it is important to understand the process and be guided and supported with the remedies.

For these types of deep emotional issues, 200c potencies are more suitable and the dosage is twice per week.

​This is the first stage where your mind tries to integrate what has happened.
