ANXIETY – HOMEOPATHIC APPROACH

 

INTRODUCTION

 

In homeopathy, the understanding of anxiety remains same as that in modern psychiatry but the difference lies in the handling of anxiety and its disorders. According to homeopathic philosophy, the knowledge of disease and the knowledge of the homeopathic medicine plays a vital role in treating any person having any kind of disease or disturbance. Similarly for treating a person having anxiety or any of its disorder, the precipitating factor or cause, its symptomatology and the diagnosis holds similar importance as required by any other system of medicine. This helps in selecting the homeopathic remedy fortreating a diseased individual (having anxiety) and not simply the disease (anxiety).

 

Homeopathic remedy holds the essence of treating a person as a whole which will initiate a process of good health, mentally as well as physically. The treatment begins in the same fashion as that of modern psychiatry with finding the root cause or the precipitating factor.
