HOMOEOPATHY AND MENTAL HEALTH:
Numerous homeopathic treatments are successful in treating mental diseases and their symptoms to attain good mental health eg. Ignatia amara, phosphoricum acidum, lachesis etc.
One of the main treatments for hysteria is ignatia. It is used to treat disorders brought on by the impairment of mental coordination and mostly affects emotions. The following symptoms can also be treated with this remedy:
Sighing and tears, combined with a sense of extreme grief without any apparent reason
Headaches caused by loss, shock, disappointment, and stress, such as insomnia brought on by grieving
Twitching of the limbs when you sleep.
After meals and in the morning, the symptoms are worse. Going outside in the open air, smoking, and external heat can also make them worse. Changing positions and eating while experiencing symptoms makes them go away.
Phosphoric acid helps control nervous tiredness and is mostly used to treat mental debility. The following symptoms can also be treated with this remedy:

Exercise, excessive sexual activity, fluid loss, and discussing the symptoms all make the symptoms worse. Everything that hinders circulation makes the symptoms worse. Keeping warm helps the symptoms go away.
High achievers and people who are very responsible might get better after using this medicine. They often take things extremely seriously and exhibit great ambition at work. When people sacrifice their personal lives for work, it can eventually strain their relationships because they end up devoting too much of themselves to their careers. Alcohol use as a stress reliever can result in liver problems, which can then fuel irrational outbursts of anger and irritation.
These individuals can experience severe depression during difficult times, particularly when things go wrong at work because they have devoted so much time and effort to their careers that their identities have become tied to what they have or have not accomplished. Even if these individuals struggle with talking about their issues, their inclination to hold their emotions results in isolation and the perception that they are solely responsible for the problem's growth.
This medicine can be beneficial for people who become compulsive or ritualistic out of tension and nervousness. These people enjoy performing, and they may be talented athletes or competitive artists. The issue is that they have a tendency to become extremely apprehensive and nervous about impending events, which has an impact on their performance. Because of unpleasant and unreasonable impulses, there may be extreme concern about one's health or fear of being alone.
Argentum nitricum is an excellent nerve relaxant and balance-creator. There may also be a sense of urgency and rushing, of not having enough time to complete everything, which, of course, is made worse by impending meetings, events, or key interviews.The desire for rituals (such continually checking items) grows as the deadline draws closer and the fears grow deeper. Other traits that are addressed by this treatment include claustrophobia, a fear of heights, or a dread of being in a confined environment like a train.
Lachesis works well for those who experience strong highs and lows, which is why it can be beneficial for people with bipolar disorder or manic, depression They have a passionate, chatty, expressive side that is followed by a brooding, melancholy mood that might cause envy and competition. Due to the depth of their imagination and subconscious, some people may develop the notion that they are not entirely in control of themselves during difficult situations and become very suspicious of others. If left untreated, this paranoia may eventually grow so severe as to trigger psychotic episodes.
WHY HOMOEOPATHY ?
The primary explanation is that homeopaths treat each person as a whole, accounting for the mind, emotions, and physical symptoms. Contrarily, standard medical practice tries to completely explain the issue in terms of chemistry or hormonal shifts. Then, a pharmaceutical is picked to balance these modifications, which can relieve distressing symptoms (as long as you continue taking the medication while simultaneously experiencing the side effects). But over time, this strategy does nothing to alter the root cause of mental health issues.
