The word Depression itself comes from the Latin for pressing down, Deprimer. To feel it means to experience deep despondency and dejection, and as of 2017, there were 300 million+ sufferers reported globally, with many more cases potentially untreated.
While gaining a hobby like yoga to ensure you’re doing well physically, crosswords to keep your mind in good shape, and playing pokies to have a little fun and wind down is recommended, there are other treatment options available too. Homoeopathy is one path.
Aurum metallicum is indicated for people suffering from feelings of complete helplessness and deep depression. These individuals work too hard, often trying to achieve impossible goals, and being alone worsens their feelings of despair, so they’ll frequently spend all their time at the office or in busywork. They feel their melancholy as a dark cloud hanging over them which cannot be shaken off, and their depression often worsens if they lose work, their business fails, they run into financial trouble or they get wrapped up in a disappointing love affair.
Aurum metallicum is good for people who suffer from many regrets, however unreasonable these may seem to outsiders. They often feel that they’ve neglected their duties, be these work-, family-, or friend-related, and suffer from issues with anger, frequently flying off the handle. These individuals often pose a high suicide risk.
Mercurius Solubilis Hahnemanni
Mercurius solubilis hahnemanni is a possible solution for people suffering from wild mood swings, being ecstatic one moment and woebegone the next. These individuals usually suffer from high levels of irritability and have a short fuse as a result. They tend to withdraw from society and wallow in their depression, and their feelings of despair often see them seriously considering suicide as a way out.
These people often feel rushed, and this may manifest in the way they speak, leading to issues with stuttering and stammering. They suffer from undue levels of impulsivity but are also apathetic. They like change, and this may be manifested in regularly rearranging their home furnishings or moving homes to address their problems with restlessness. These individuals are often caught up in their thoughts, so much so that they may forget to bathe or eat. In female sufferers, symptoms of depression may worsen with PMS, and both sexes are suspicious of those around them, constantly feeling like something terrible is about to happen.
The depression for which natrum muriaticum is recommended often begins after people suffer a severe loss like the death of a loved one or the end of a relationship. These individuals often hold grudges from perceived slights for a long time after the incident occurs. They hold their emotions inside of themselves, and they’re also good at keeping their pain and sadness secret. These people are excellent at checking their emotions, rarely crying in front of others, and this results in them being seen as stoic or even unfeeling. They also tend to fall in love with unavailable people because of a fear of rejection stemming from their deep vulnerability.
