Homeopathy for Mental Health

Homeopathy speaks of a vital force, which encompasses one’s energy, strength and capacity to heal. Perturbations of the vital force appear as symptoms and this is the means by which the disease can be seen and the appropriate remedy determined. Samuel Hahnemann, the founder of homeopathy, believed that no illness is wholly mental or wholly physical, but rather every illness involved the organism in its entirety: on mental, emotional and physical levels.

Symptoms are an effect of an imbalance in the vital force and individuals are treated on the basis of how this imbalance manifests within them; not according to what disease they may or may not have. Homeopathic remedies stimulate the vital force to enact healing from within. Cure in homeopathy is thus not only the eradication of symptoms, but also a restoration of balance within the individual. A balanced and healthy person possesses mental, emotional, physical and spiritual freedom and thus is able to manifest their unique potential in the world.

From a homeopathic perspective, mental health disorders are a deeper illness than physical health disorders (they are a greater threat to the health of the vital force). Thus more aggressive and sustained treatments are required to heal. Homeopathy has the potential to offer profound transformation and even cure from mental health issues. In the process, as it views the organism as a single integrated organism, physical healing can be seen as well.
