When we think about health problems affecting us DEPRESSION is not the first to come to mind. Nevertheless, it is one of the leading causes for the medical help as depression influences both body and mind.
Speaking about depression it is important to know that women experience it more often than men do. Female clinical depression usually leads to mood changes. The researches showed that about 3%-5% of women have depression or experience anxiety related to menstruation. The severe form of female depression, which needs to be treated, is called premenstrual dysphoric disorder.
Depression in women develops also after childbirth (postnatal depression), menopause, and misbirth and after experiencing barrenness .Besides, the women who became victims of domestic violence or rape in the early age are in the group of depression risk.
Other factors leading to depression include:
• The Stressful situations.
• Sexual or physical abuse in the childhood.
• The usage of certain oral contraceptives which contain progesterone.
• Loss of a parent in the age of under 10.
• Good disorder of the relatives.
• Personal mood disorder especially in an early age.
• Lack of social support.
• Treatment of infertility with the usage of gonadotropin stimulants.
To recognize depression is not difficult as it has a variety of symptoms. They include irritation, reduction of sex interest, feeling of hopelessness, guilt or worthlessness, frequent suicide thoughts, constant exhaustion, hypersomnia (sleeping too much),insomnia(inability to sleep), various sleep disturbance, lessening of interest to any activity or pleasure and some other psychomotor factors. Sometimes women being in a depression state experience changes in their appetite habits. They become eating either more or less which leads to weight gain or loss of weight. Depression also causes difficulties in attention and concentration. A depressed person usually lacks energy.
Importance of mental or mind in homoeopathy:
The mind is its own place and in itself. It can create a heaven in hell and hell of heaven. In brevity a sound mind in a sound body is precise description of a happy and healthy state in this world. Health is not a condition of matter but of mind; nor can the material senses bear reliable testimony on the subject of health. Mental slavery is mental death and every man who has given up his intellectual freedom is the living coffin of his dead soul. Diseases of the mind impair the power of the body.
Homoeopathy is a fascinating art because it travels into uncharted territory. It is amazing that correct homoeopathic diagnosis often depends not upon what the problem is but upon how you express it, in fact the exact words that you use. A homoeopathic physician unlike other doctor do not consider a patient as merely a sample of disease but takes human as a human and gives full respect to each and every emotions. We can only cure the patient when we can completely imagine his state of mind.
