Anxiety can be debilitating, and devastating. The standard of care for anxiety is pharmaceutical medications and counseling. While these options can help to curb some of the effects of anxiety and panic, medications can cause unwanted side effects. Some medications– benzodiazapines in particular– are addictive, requiring higher and higher doses in order to be effective. As a result of this, people are searching for integrative, holistic mental health care that is safe, quick, and effective. The demand for natural treatments for anxiety and panic attacks has grown in leaps and bounds in the past decade.
Thankfully, homeopathy offers another alternative. Homeopathy offers an alternative treatment for anxiety. Homeopathy gets to the root cause of anxiety, and by treating the cause, the anxiety naturally goes away leaving the person feeling confident, and free again.
Homeopathy can help with chronic long standing anxiety, and it can quickly and effectively help in acute panic.
In fact, homeopathy can help stop a panic attack almost immediately when prescribed correctly.
Homeopathy is effective for both adults and children of all ages. There are no side effects and remedies will not interfere with any medications. Most homeopathic remedies are prepared as small sweet-tasting pills that dissolve under your tongue or in water, and both kids and adults love to take them
Tina (name changed), was incredibly anxious. She had panic attacks before 4th grade classes most mornings and this was beginning to impact her scholarship. The panic was often triggered by the fire alarms that occurred once per month on campus. It was also very hard for Tina to separate from her parents for fear that something terrible would happen to them.
Tina was very timid, and her mother was concerned that her daughter had not developed any friendships in school. Because Tina’s parents did not want to put their young daughter on pharmacological medications, they brought her to see Dr. Cain first.
Dr. Cain took Tina’s homeopathic case and learned that in addition to the symptoms mentioned above, that when Tina was afraid, she’d get flushes of heat that rose from her chest to her head. She also wanted to be close to her parents, and drank ice water to soothe her nerves. She was extremely afraid of the dark and slept with the lights on, and her symptoms were always aggravated when it was storming outside.
Homeopathic medicines are prescribed on the individualizing or unique symptoms a patient experiences. In Tina’s case of anxiety, the symptoms that are unique to her in particular are best covered by homeopathic Phosphorus. Dr. Cain prescribed Phosphorus 30C once per day, and within three days, Tina and her parents started to see improvement. Follow ups were done monthly and Tina reported that she was feeling better and better at each visit. Her parents are thrilled with her progress. Tina started making friends, and the fire alarm no longer scared her. Her grades improved, and she grew in her overall sense of confidence and self.
It has been six months and Tina is thriving in school. She has never needed psychiatric medications. She is happier, healthier, and only comes back to see Dr. Cain to talk about how classes are going, or for the occasional “touch up” visit.
