A Case of Depression and Insomnia treatment with Homeopathy


A 54 years old lady came to us in a very anxious state of mind. She said for the past 2 months she has not slept and it is getting worse. Even though she is taking sedatives for more then a month yet there is no relief. Besides the above complaints the patient said she has no interest in doing anything nothing interests her. The complaints have started after her son and daughter in law have settled in US for their professional work.

Childhood: She stayed in a small village in India. She had a very good and carefree life. She used to mix with people easily and had a good friend circle. She liked to help those who were needy and was very sympathetic by nature. She was good in her studies and after completion of education she got married. This was the turning point time in her life changed drastically due to her husband and in laws. Her husband was a very aggressive and angry man. He used to gamble, drink and then abuse her. Even though her husband insults in front of every one she cannot express herself as she is scared of him.

She is very sensitive by nature if someone says something wrong she will get emotionally hurt. She will brood over these events and she cannot forget them. She cries when she is alone and listening to music makes her feel much better. Earlier she used to have lot of suicidal thoughts but due to her attachment with her children she never tried to commit suicide. She also said she lacks the courage to commit suicide.

Her children were her only support and the reason to live. As her children grew they used to support her made her feel good. Whenever she was angry she used to express it in front of her children. But if someone consoled her she didn't like it at all. She felt very sad when her son went into depression due to business loss. She used to feel very bad about it .Then her son gradually recovered from the depression.
