Depression

I am(48 years) suffering from depression near about 16 years now. Get treated by many allopathic doctors, completed the course, got result but again the symptoms came back. I also used some sleeping pills over the counter to get a good night sleep, as this was one of my main symptoms. Now I am facing severe depression along with loss of appetite, sleep, motion etc. Feeling hopeless and seems like losing everything in life, not able to concentrate. Now, as allopathy drugs have lots of side effects, I was planning for homeopathy. Is there treatment for old/severe depression in Homeopathy?

Depression is a chronic, long lasting or recurring and treatable disorder, where the patient experiences sadness, worthlessness, loss of motive, loss of interest and/or hopelessness.

A depressive disorder is an illness that involves the mood and thoughts and in simple words can be expressed as persistent sad mood. Depression is not a character flaw or a sign of personal weakness and the suffering person can't make himself well by trying to snap out of it. Depression affects the way a person eats and sleeps, the way one feels about oneself, and the way one thinks about things.

Depression results from a complex, partly understood biochemical changes in the brain, which are influenced and supported by multiple causes inclusive of genetic trait, circumstantial factors, hormonal factors, socio-personal reasons, etc. Increased levels of brain chemicals called neurotransmitters, such as serotonin and norepinephrine are found to improve the state of depression.

Depression is much more common than we believe. However to get precise figures in terms of its prevalence is difficult as many of them go undetected and untreated. Women are twice more often affected with depression than men.Some people experience a few symptoms, some many. Severity of symptoms varies with individuals and also varies over time

Though the precise cause and nature of depression is not clearly understood, it is believed to be an illness involving an imbalance of brain chemicals called neurotransmitters.

Very often, a combination of genetic, psychological, and environmental factors is involved in the onset of a depressive disorder.
Homeopathy offers an excellent treatment for all stages of Depression, especially in the early stages. Homeopathy can take care of various symptoms of depression. Extreme cases of depression or the cases where the patients are on high doses of the conventional medicines for a long time (drug dependency) may not find good results using homeopathy. The important aspect is that depression is a disease in which genetic make-up is topped with environmental stress result in disease.By using homeopathic medicine which  are very deep acting and having potential to counter genetic tendencies. Homeopathy medicines address the root cause of the disease and hence prevent the relapse and recurrence of the condition.

Homeopathy has very potent and effective remedies. Homeopathy doesnot cause drug dependence. The rationalization of any kind of over or under reaction to stimulus happens  very gently.
No counselling needed.
As per your description, best remedy would be one dose of Calc. Carb 1M every fortnight.

Hi sir
First depression is not a disease. It's the state of mind at particular period of time with some external or internal stimuli. So an modern medicines will help you only to calm and stabilize the mood. Once you discontinue the medicine all the symptoms will come back. In Homeopathy we treat patient as a whole and give much importance for mind symptoms. So you will get a wholistic approach and permanent solution for you.
Kindly visit a Qualified Homeopath to get cured.
Have a speedy recovery.
