It is possible to cure anxiety with homeopathy (which is a combination of interaction with a homeopath and taking a homeopathic medicine), or sometimes with just the medicines themselves. But it's better to work with a homeopath rather than just taking medicines on your own.
The reason it's better to work with a homeopath is that homeopaths are trained to look at the whole picture of your life. They consider your physical health, your mental health, and your spiritual health, but they also look for patterns in your daily routine that may be setting off anxiety attacks that you could have overlooked. Many homeopaths believe that by the time they have identified your unique set of symptoms for your unique homeopathic remedy, you're about 80% of the way to getting well. The homeopathic remedy just takes you the rest of the way.
Some common homeopathic remedies for anxiety include:
- Aconitum napellus is used to stp acute panic attacks, the kind with shaking, sweating, and shear uncontrolable fear. It's also used to treat anxiety that worse with the onset of a cold or flu.
- Arsenicum album is often recommended for people who have panic attacks in the middle of the night. People who respond well to this remedy typically have a "touch" of OCD. They are very neat and organized and have clear expecations of others.
- Calcarea carbonica is for treating anxiety in dependable people who are simply overwhelmed by illness or overwork.
- Ignatia amara is given to people who sigh a lot, who are sensitive to criticism, and who suffer anxiety about performance.
- Kali phosphoricum is for people who tend to eat a lot when they become anxious.
- Lycopodium is given to treat anxiety in people who take on more than they can handle. It's also recommended when anxiety causes burping, belching, or gas attacks.
- Pulsatilla is the remedy for "clinginess," especially in people who are experiencing hormonal changes such as puberty or menopause.
- Silica is given to people who are anxious about a new job, a new residence, or a new residence, especially if they are simply working too hard.
If there is no effect, take another 24 hours later. If there is still no effect, take a third dose on the third day. But don't take multiple medications. One at a time will do it.
If you don't get the results you are looking for with homeopathy, consider the Bach flower remedies. The "rescue remedy" is for acute anxiety, and other individual flower remedies--clearly identified on the bottle--will match patterns of symptoms in much the same way as homeopathy.
There are nearly 70 published scientific studies on the use of homeopathy for anxiety. It may take a while for you to find the remedy that really matches your complete symptoms, but there is a high probability it will work with no risk of side effects.
