Depression Treatment in Homeopathy

Want to feel better Naturally?  Sunny Happier Days  

Don't want to take Chemical Medicine? 

Homeopathy offers assistance of a different kind. Talking to patients, I understand that they just want to feel happier. They want their lives back.

And they don't want a future that involves taking pills every day.

When you come for an appointment, by talking to you I construct a detailed case history and then I prescribe specifically for you, individually, for where you are in your life today.  

If you know what triggered your depression, e.g. Post Natal depression, a bereavement or we can find a pattern like Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) that's great. But more often than not, it's not the case.  If there's no obvious trigger, then we find the correct remedy by establishing the personality & constitutional traits that make you who you are. 

Homeopathic medicines have been used for centuries, without side effects or long term dependency. You will receive tailored, specific medicine that suits your mind, body & lifestyle. Chosen for you alone.          

Call me today for a free, no obligation chat to discuss whether Homeopathy could help you. If I don't think I can help, I will tell you there and then. If you don't call, I can't help you.

If you are interested in published research on the effectiveness of Homeopathic Treatment in Depression, there have been recent studies done that compared Homeopathic medicine to conventional anti-depressants.

In the study below, Homeopathy was found to be just as effective as chemical medicine, but without the side effects.

 

The aim of this study is to investigate the non-inferiority and tolerability of individualized homeopathic medicines [Quinquagintamillesmial (Q-potencies)] in acute depression, using fluoxetine as active control. Ninety-one outpatients with moderate to severe depression were assigned to receive an individualized homeopathic medicine or fluoxetine 20?mg?day?1 (up to 40?mg?day?1) in a prospective, randomized, double-blind double-dummy 8-week, single-centre trial.

Primary efficacy measure was the analysis of the mean change in the Montgomery & Åsberg Depression Rating Scale (MADRS) depression scores, using a non-inferiority test with margin of 1.45. Secondary efficacy outcomes were response and remission rates. Tolerability was assessed with the side effect rating scale of the Scandinavian Society of Psychopharmacology. Mean MADRS scores differences were not significant at the 4th (P = .654) and 8th weeks (P = .965) of treatment. Non-inferiority of homeopathy was indicated because the upper limit of the confidence interval (CI) for mean difference in MADRS change was less than the non-inferiority margin: mean differences (homeopathy-fluoxetine) were ?3.04 (95% CI ?6.95, 0.86) and ?2.4 (95% CI ?6.05, 0.77) at 4th and 8th week, respectively. There were no significant differences between the percentages of response or remission rates in both groups. Tolerability: there were no significant differences between the side effects rates, although a higher percentage of patients treated with fluoxetine reported troublesome side effects and there was a trend toward greater treatment interruption for adverse effects in the fluoxetine group. This study illustrates the feasibility of randomized controlled double-blind trials of homeopathy in depression and indicates the non-inferiority of individualized homeopathic Q-potencies as compared to fluoxetine in acute treatment of outpatients with moderate to severe depression.
