Homeopathy Medicine for Depression
Depression is a chronic, enduring, or recurrent disorder that is treatable and causes the patient to feel hopeless, depressed, unimportant, and devoid of motivation or drive.
Depression is not a flaw in character or a sign of personal weakness, and the suffering person cannot make himself well by trying to snap out of it. Depression affects how a person eats and sleeps, how they feel about themselves, and how they think about things. Depression is an illness that involves the mood and thoughts, and in simple terms can be expressed as persistent sad mood.
Increased levels of brain chemicals known as neurotransmitters, such as serotonin and norepinephrine, are found to improve the state of depression. Depression results from a complex set of poorly understood biochemical changes in the brain that are influenced and supported by numerous causes, including the genetic trait, circumstantial factors, hormonal factors, socio-personal reasons, etc.
The prevalence of depression is much higher than we realize, and women are twice as likely as men to experience it. However, it is difficult to obtain precise numbers because many cases go unrecognized and untreated.
The severity of the symptoms varies between individuals and also over time, and not everyone who is depressed exhibits all of the symptoms listed below; some people only exhibit a few, while others exhibit many.

Numerous factors, ranging from the biological to the circumstantial, may contribute to depression.
Common causes include:
- Family history.If depression or another mood disorder runs in your family, you are more likely to experience depression yourself.
- Early childhood trauma.Your body’s response to stress and frightening situations is impacted by certain events.
- Brain structure.The frontal lobe of the brain is associated with a higher risk for depression, but it’s unclear whether this occurs before or after the onset of depressive symptoms.
- Medical conditions.You may be more vulnerable if you have a chronic illness, chronic pain, insomnia, or attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
- Drug use.Drug or alcohol abuse in the past may increase your risk.
Besides these factors, there are other risk factors for depression, such as:
- self-criticism or a low sense of self-worth
- psychological illness in the past
- certain medications
- stressful occurrences like a loved one’s passing, financial difficulties, or a divorce
Extreme cases of depression or those in which patients are taking high doses of conventional medications for an extended period of time (drug dependence) may not find good results using homeopathy. Homeopathy offers an excellent treatment for all stages of depression, especially in the early stages.
HomeopathyThe crucial point is that depression is a disease in which genetic make-up is topped with environmental stress, leading to disease, and can positively influence personality traits that are operating at the base of disease.Homeopathic medicinesHomeopathy medicines address the underlying cause of the disease and thus prevent relapse and recurrence of the condition. Additionally, unlike the majority of conventional medications, such as anti-depressants and anxiolytics, homeopathy medicines are completely free from any side-effects.
