Our diet and lifestyle, thoughts and words, genetics, experiences, and daily interactions play a significant role in our mental health. Mental health is interwoven with our overall health, therefore, it is essential to address and balance emotional concerns. Whether a person struggles with fibromyalgia, excess weight, insomnia, diarrhea or constipation, there is likely a mental component preventing them from living optimally.
Depression and anxiety are two of the most common concerns that patients present with. Symptoms of depression and anxiety vary, especially in children, and may include headaches, stomach pain, sleep disturbance, frequent illness, irritability, impaired concentration, or fatigue.
Dr. E’s favorite part of being a primary care physician is being able to listen without judgment while people share their story. This open dialogue allows Dr. E to find the most effective medicine for them to heal. This medicine is often a homeopathic remedy, which is the safest, effective, long lasting, and cost effective medicine possible. When the proper remedy is selected, mental and physical concerns balance and the person is able to thrive.
Some patients describe homeopathy as a magic pill or emotional shield since it allows them to be less affected by emotional trauma or stressors, yet doesn’t numb or have interactions with other drugs/supplements. Homeopathic medicines are scientifically proven and have been observed clinically to have successful outcomes with people who have struggled with the following mental health concerns:
- Changeable moods
- Difficulty concentrating
- Low self esteem
- Obsessive-compulsive tendencies
- Oversensitivity to other people’s opinion
- Post-traumatic stress
- Suicidal thoughts
- Violent outbursts
Experiencing emotions is a healthy and natural response, yet can be concerning when they affect a person’s work, school, parenting, sleep, daily activities, or quality of life in an undesirable way. This undesired response is often suppressed short term, but will likely manifest into physical symptoms or deeper, more concerning emotional responses if not processed in a healthy way.
There are various successful treatments to address mental health including homeopathy. When the right remedy is selected, patients are able to improve as a whole person and often report more balanced emotions as well as improved physical health. A ‘marshmallow suit’ or ‘duck feathers’ have been used as examples of how homeopathy may affect a person’s past experiences and current situations may not change, yet they are able to let stressors bounce or roll off with ease and are able to enjoy healthier behaviors with more balanced overall emotions.
If you are frustrated, apathetic, or even hopeless, please have HOPE that there are options for you to heal and feel better!
