Homeopathy for Fears and Phobias

Fear is an emotion arising from a threat, which may be real or imaginary. It is a body’s uncontrollable reaction to a particular situation or an event. A person tends to avoid and run away from a given circumstance, which in turn becomes fear. Fear can be associated with any person, situation or things. In most cases, it is a result of some past experiences or future anticipations. The most common fears experienced by a human include fear of death, of closed places, failure, and fear of the unknown. Fear of heights and water, fear of sex (intimacy), and fear of disease are some other prevalent conditions. Anxiety and restlessness mostly accompany fear, and if not treated well, it can further develop into panic attacks. Homeopathic medicines for fear help decrease the severity of symptoms associated with fear and also help prevent further progression of the condition into panic attacks.

Homeopathy as a Natural and Alternative Treatment for Fear

Homeopathy is an effective alternative treatment for fear. Internal homeopathic medicine often proves to be the best natural option to help treat such conditions. These medicines work by treating the whole patient, and not just the symptoms since the human body functions as one unit, and a disorder in one part can affect another. Homeopathic medicines do not cause drug-dependency or any side-effects.

    Dear sir, I am a 58years old man. In the past I had been badly mentally tortured at my work place for nearly 13years continuously. At present I am taking allopathic medicines for schizophrenia, depression and ocd which has grown up due to my mental torture at my job place. I have been freed from past bad events since 2010. But the problem is that, I still fear that people and objects that disturbed me in the past, would come back and there will be recurrence of past bad experiences. I often indulge in fear of recurrence of past events, it comes in flash back very often. Kindly suggest me suitable homeopathic medicines that i should take along with my allopathic medicines.

  6. Ayelet Amitai says:

    Hello Doctor Sharma
    I need to go through a biopsy of my left breast but I have a terrible fear of medical procedures injections included.
    To overcome this fear I have tried Silica and Aconite spigella and Arsenicum , Argentum Nitricum Hepar Sulph, Stramonium and also Gelsemium and Arnica over time. Nothing has helped.
    It started when I was 2 and a half years old in a hospital with traumatic experiences.
    The thing is that I don’t have control over my body’s reaction when they try to do any of these things, my body can jump quickly and that is dangerous whilst they try to do a medical procedure
    I have not being able to have dental treatments or blood tests from the vein.
    Now they found calcium in my breast and they suspect it could be cancer and a biopsy is urgently needed,
    Do you think Staphysagria 50M might help?(I have taken 200c in the past and didn’t help for this)
    It is a very stressful situation.
    Thank you
    Ayelet Amitai

    Our daughter is autistic – asperger age 42 gradually developed fear of being in the sun becaUse it will turn her skin brown since about teenage years. She never goes anywhere outside in daylight even cloudy day unless she covers every inch of her skin so daylight does not touch her skin I.e. Gloves hat turtleneck to cover face hat down over face all seasons. Has no problem when dark outside/not dusk but dark . Includes riding in car/bus. Most of professionals say if it isn’t harming her not to worry! What about the suns / daylight benefits to her physical/mental health. Even the eskamoes have summer seasonal weather . She takes vit D3 each day but one psychiatrist read even that requires sunlight to truly activate the artificial D sunlight Her social life is somewhat limited to home grocery store work and occasionally department store. One psychologist said he saw tendency for developing agoraphobia This we are elderly now so consistency with with theropys etc at home is difficult but not out of the question
