  • I am experiencing severe depression. I have been under a doctor’s care for about 15 months with no relief. I do not want to be depressed. I’m stuck in a pit and can’t get out.
    I’m thinking of trying these remedies. The options presented to me in traditional medicine are severe and damaging.
    Can any harm come from trying one of these remedies? If it doesn’t work, I’ll try the other as that is all I know to do at this time.

    • Hi Melinda, I’m looking into this too. I wonder if we might swop notes and encouragement to get free of this debilitating state of being.

  • Thank you for repeating this article.
    Can one start with a low potency of these medicines if cause is known or does one have to clear the top layers first before these will help. Thx.

  • I recommend, Argentum Nitricum, Aurum Met,Ignatia (for accute),Kali Phos,Lycopodium & want to add Natrum group, particularly Natrum Mure ranks high.

  • Author’s compilation of remedies shows only the knowledge taken from books, It’s not skilful experience of remedies. Very poor information. There is no miasmatic classifications. Most of the medicines are palliative. Ignoring Natrum group, particularly Natrum Mure in depression is not appreciable. It seems my previous comment was ignored, I wish unprejudiced team of Facekom.

    • Sir, these are proving symptoms and not meant to be a concise and easy take on understanding the remedies. However, I’ll be happy to add those descriptions to this article, if you can contribute the same, of course with due acknowledgement to you as a contributor.

  • Thanks for publishing my comments.
    Since long time, more than 10 years I have subscribed your journal.
    No doubt, you are are doing nice work for Homoeopathy. Appreciate your Editorial team.

  • I am a 62 yr.old female. I have been treated for depression most of my adult life. I have been diagnosed with medication resistant depression. Two years ago my doctor gave me over 20 ext treatments, without relief. When I refused more shock therapy my Dr. Dropped me as a patient. Currently I go a community mental health clinic. My depression is worse than ever. I am very interested in homeopathy medication to find some kind of relief. Is their any physicians in central Ohio who practices mental health homeopathy? I am desperate for relief.
