I was expecting a homeopathic treatment I understand st johns wort is for a recent and short-term problem not a long-term one
trauma experienced when young which is not healed can then go on to hinder personality development and emotional expression this can then cause depression and lack of confidence
we need skills to cope with daily life and trauma can prevent the development of these skills something is needed to heal the trauma so allowing the person to function better
physical and emotional violence in childhood not being allowed to express any upset being made to feel you are the cause of all your problems broken home I am not sure what else you need to know
counseling was a long time ago maybe the problem is just depression
can you prescribe a homeopathic medicine for depression if not I would prefer to end this consultation
There are no specific indications so far for arsenicum album.
Remedies have to be chosen based on homeopathic differential diagnosis.
Sorry for the interuption...can you tell me more about your emotions?
You would have to state specific symptoms to rule in arsenicum. These are very specific.
are you now saying you are not prescribing arsenicum I am confused do you agree we are talking about depression I cannot describe my emotions because I do not have any I feel in a state of panic all the time as a person who is having a panick attack does but mine never goes away and plus I am unable to express it so I am numb it is too late now to continue corresponding perhaps you can leave me an answer
no sexual abuse I generally feel warm but told by Chinese doctor I am actually cold and should keep well covered up I feel sluggish and everything is an effort both mentally and physically sleep has always been a problem and going to be is an effort now for many years heat is difficult for me but I cope clostraphobia quite bad I do not usually remember dreams
Feeling warm rules out arsenicum. Arsenicum loves heat, hot tops, sitting right next to the fire or stove will blankets on, etc.. This is not arsenicum.
I will be able to give you some more likely possibilities in a moment.
Tell me more about the sleep problem. More detail is helpful, anything unusual.
Any physical things about you, any chronic symptoms, for example with skin, muscles, teeth, ....anything?
Anything else about environment, weather, season, place, foods, etc?
I go to bed late and get up early and usually wake in the night and cant always go back to sleep so I get up I am very overweight my skin is no problem but my hair has become a problem it seems to have aged the most my gums/teeth are a problem I think I have a fluid retention problem and I have a swollen foot from a mosquito bite two years ago for which I did have antibiotics
I was waking a four o'clock but for past few weeks I am going a till seven but I do not know if this will last I usually go to bed about one o'clock I have tried to lose weight ofcourse this year I switched from processed flour to natural flour which includes pasta and rice which is usually organic I have always eaten fresh food gooked at home I do not drink fizzy drinks and buy a sugar made from woodbark/no calories I have increased my vegetables and fruit intake but I always feel tired and sluggish I also cycle a couple of miles most days my hair has thinned on top and looks lifeless my nature is to be very particular and tidy and thorough and I love detail and cleaning
I have researched all the remedies you listed and it has become clear that only a face to face consultation will I get the right remedy as it needs to be prescribed how often to take it and for how long as I am not really happy continuing an internet consultation as really this is too private I will finish it now thank you for your help
