In the initial stages or in the milder forms or in people who are not aware of the disease, depression can go unidentified till its implications become too obvious.

  1. I am depressed many years what kind of treat is best

  2. Hello Doctor,
    When depression comes from OCD.. which one do you try to tacle first.. I would say depression and then treat the OCD but the therapy could ease the depression.. thank you for your advise.

  3. I am just completed 69, having 40 years armed Forces service. Have seen many tragic situations and never had any abnormal feeling. Even once during 1990 I had assisted a doctor to conduct postmortem a murdered body, at a very isolated place in North-East. My children are well settled and I am comfortably passing my retired life without any tension. I am suffering from Essential Tremor for about 18-20 years which increased about 3 month back. Neurologist prescribed me CIPLAR 20 which I am taking since last month. Apart from Essential Tremor I have some problem of low urine pressure having mild increase in Prostate which is about 31 gms.
    I have seen number of cruelty videos of ISIS etc but never felt abnormal. But last month on 22 August, two videos of Taliban cruelty on social media disturbed me suddenly and my palpitation increased. I felt as something out of my heart has gone out. It disturbed me very much and I also started feeling claustrophobia and negative thoughts. For about 15 days my life remained highly disturbed. Was feeling fear, less light, feeling trapped in my house, stopped to watched TV, enough strain on the heart. Consulted Neurologist who prescribed me Ettazolam 20 SOS. I tried myself to be positive and have recovered more than 80% but still negative effect is still there though no strain on heart now. I found Ettazolam as an addictive medicine and take it once or twice a week.
    No HBP, no Thyroid and no Diabetes.
    Please suggest me Homeopathic medicine with doses. In addition also please suggest medicine for Prostate and Essential Tremor. Waiting for your kind reply. Regards,

    डॉक्टर साब नमस्ते,मैंने आपका वीडियो you tube में देखा,मेरी पत्नी पिछले 3 साल से डिप्रेशन से पीड़ित है, allopathy और आयुर्वेदिक दवाइयां ली लेकिन स्थाई लाभ नही हुआ,मेरे एक मित्र ने बताया कि होमेओपेथी में डिप्रेशन का बहुत अच्छा इलाज है उसने हमें काली फोस 6x लेने का सुझाव दिया है, लेकिन मेरा विचार से किसी qualified homeo डॉक्टर से कंसल्ट करके treatment लेना ही उचित होगा।
    कृपया अपना चार्ज बताने का कष्ट करें और किस माध्यम से पेमेंट करना है ये भी बताने की कृपा करें।
    नोट:मेरी पत्नी होमेओपेथी की liquid मेडिसिन नही लेना चाहती है।
