Depression has become alarmingly common place in our society. It appears as a variety of negative thoughts and feelings ranging from just being down to hopelessness and at worst suicidal despair.

Grief and sadness are normal after loss of a loved one or a similar  disappointing life event, but it is considered to be depression  when the emotions don not lift after months rather than weeks. More often an imbalance within the mind is the cause of depression due to life denying attitudes and fixed ideas. These attitudes lead to a sense of persecution with accompanying fears and loneliness

Depression can be any combination of these feelings…excessive desire to sleep, lack of energy, loss of interest and joy for life, isolating tendencies, lack of social interest, self criticism and negativity, reoccurring thoughts of death and suicide.

Depression can also follow pregnancy and birth, viral illness, and allergies. It is common amongst the elderly and after suffering abusive  circumstances in life.. It often develops when emotions, like anger are suppressed.

What ever the cause, Homeopathic medicine in most cases and when well prescribed to match the individual, will relieve the symptoms. Treatment is not ongoing and is often for months not years.The Homeopathic medicines are compatible  with anti depressants, which can be slowly reduced as the person feels comfortable to do so, and often with the assistance of the doctor.
