Homeopathy Treatments for Post-traumatic Stress Disorder

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder other known as PTSD is a psychiatric condition that is brought on by memories of extremely stressful situations or life threatening events. The individual relives the experiences through nightmares, flashbacks and behavioral disorders like depression, fear, anxiety and insomnia. They may also experience feelings of detachment from family members, friends and other familiar surroundings. In many cases, PTSD is so severe that it affects the individual’s lifestyle in a profound way.

Healing from a trauma can take several counseling sessions with constitutional homeopathic remedy. The patient should be given ample time to describe their experience and the effect it has had on them and their outlook. Homeopathy treatments works on the Principle of Individualization which simply means that every individual is given treatments tailor made for their problem. No two treatment procedures are the same. The medicine varies for every individual based on their onset, duration, progress, sensation, location, modalities and symptoms. However, homeopathic remedies have proven to have a positive effect on children as well as adults who suffer from PTSD.

Homeopathy has the power to relinquish PTSD’s energetic hold on the patient. This is because the energetic shock from the trauma or event sets up the subsequent pattern of dysfunction in the individual. Conventional drugs for PTSD will not yield satisfactory results as drug therapy only serves to suppress the symptoms for a temporary period of time, thus failing to address the underlying energetic nature of the problem. Talk therapies may manage the effects of PTSD but it is not capable of releasing the individual from its recurring tendency. In order to achieve true therapeutic success, homeopathic remedies are an energy based therapy to cure an energetically induced illness like PTSD. Homeopathic remedies for PTSD
