The Homeopathic Treatment of Mental & Emotional Disorders

A recent survey showed that one in six homeopathic patients will seek treatment for a psychiatric disorder. As a practitioner, you know that many more come with mental or emotional difficulties secondary to a physical complaint. It behooves us to be able to recognize dis-eased mental states and use them to find effective remedies for our patients. As Samuel Hahnemann reminds us in Aphorisms 210 and 213 of the Organon, mental and emotional symptoms, when present in acute or chronic cases of disease, must be considered if we wish to cure homeopathically.

The conditions covered in this lecture include:

Anxiety
Auditory Processing Disorder
Autistic Spectrum Disorder
Conversion Disorder
Neurosis
Bipolar Disorder
Body Dysmorphic Disorder
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
Depression and Suicidal Tendencies
Hypochondriasis
Somatization Disorder
The Homeopathic Treatment of Asthma

An estimated 300 million people worldwide suffer from asthma, with 250,000 annual deaths attributable to the disease. By 2025, that number is projected to reach 400,000. The World Health Organization considers all of these deaths to be avoidable. Asthma is correlated with allergies, influenza, obesity, and noxious workplace conditions. It is the leading chronic disease in children, accounting for more missed school days than any other illness. In the United States alone, it precipitates nearly 2 million emergency room hospital visits per year, and its annual cost is tabulated to be in excess of $56 billion. Famous sufferers have included John F. Kennedy, Elizabeth Taylor, and Beethoven.

In asthma, bronchial narrowing results in coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath, and a sense of tightness in the chest. Traditional treatments, such as bronchodilator and steroidal inhalers, reasonably control the condition, but cure is elusive. Side effects and long-term use can eventually be quite damaging, including impairment of immune function and growth rate in children. Homeopathy has an excellent track record in treating this debilitating illness, and offers the hope of weaning off of traditional injurious treatments, replacing them with a far gentler and deeper-acting solution.

Did you know that asthma also responds well to proper nutrition? Studies demonstrate that diets low in vegetables and fruits increase the risk and severity of asthma. As well, the anti-allergic, anti-inflammatory, and expectorant properties of raw honey make it a wonderful prophylactic food. Fresh ginger can break up accumulated lung mucus, and omega-3-rich fish and fish oils reduce inflammation and improve allergies. These and many more dietary suggestions will be covered.
