Homeopathy For PTSD

Homeopathy For PTSD

Post Traumatic disorders or PTSD is a result of the specific incident(s) which a person might have experienced in the past. The effects are mostly psychological, but temporary, as the patient often is believed to re-live a particular incident which is the root of the current problem. The aftereffects of the incident could also come in a variety of issues, but all of them linked to PTSD. These many issues do not let go of the person suffering, and subsequently not letting them get back to normalcy. Fear, anxiety, panic attacks and other such associated effects are common in a person who has PTSD.

PTSD might seem like a small problem, considering the symptoms are fresh after a particular incident or accident. However, in the long run, if it goes untreated, there could be consequences that could affect the patient psychology and could run more profound than we can imagine.

In general, there are two kinds of treatments used most often. A more conventional method and an integrated method which involves Homeopathy.

The conventional methods are not entirely useful when treating for PTSD. Doctors in conventional medicine tend to make use of anti-depressants and anti-anxiety medicines. These are not guaranteed to work at all times, an, on the other hand, could have adverse effects on the person’s health.

Conventional medicines are designed in a way that the immediate symptoms are made manageable and also helping the patient with temporary relief from the problems, especially in PTSD where there are no adverse effects.

On the other hand, the medicines themselves, due to its prolonged use could have affected the patient in more ways than imaginable.

Does Homeopathy solve PTSD problems?

Homeopathy medicines work in a different way than conventional medicines. Homeopathy is designed in a way that it suits the individual in an appropriate and medically viable manner.

Aconite:

Aconite is used in homoeopathy for patients suffering from extreme fear, especially on patients who frequently experience an unexplained vivid sense of uncertainty, restlessness and agitation.

This treatment helps the patients in the long term, and the results have been tremendous.  

Arnica:

Arnica is recommended for patients who are suffering from PTSD which has been the result of a tragedy they endured. For instance a car accident. In these cases, the patients are morbidly afraid of things associated with the tragedy, from the closest to the remotest. In the example of the car accident, they would be afraid of anything concerning the road like a car, bikes or the road itself.

Arsenicum:

Arsenicum is recommended for patients who get anxious, fidgety and restless. In their cases, they always need to help of somebody, while demanding a physical and mental presence of the helper, as they also see emotional reassurances, but on the whole, they crave for someone to be there. An absence of someone around them causes them to have sleeplessness and total anxiety.
