Effective Homeopathic Medicines For Hallucinations

Hallucinations are sensory perceptions experienced in the absence of external stimulus. For example a person with this can hear a voice which is not actually present or see an image which doesn’t exist in reality and is created only by his/her mind. Homeopathic medicines for hallucinations help to target the root cause behind it and manage the complaint quite well.

These can be related to any of the five senses. These can be  heard, smelled, seen, felt or tasted. These can be accompanied by aggressive behaviour, depression, anxiety and headache.

  1. Auditory Hallucinations

These are the most common type of hallucinations among all the types. In this a person hears sounds (like hissing, whistling etc) or voices, music which are not there in reality. Sometimes he may hear someone telling / commanding him to do certain things. The voices he hears may be familiar or can be unfamiliar. They may be heard in a friendly or aggressive tone. Perception of sound is termed elementary hallucinations while perception of the voices or music is known as complex hallucinations. 

  1. Visual Hallucinations

Persons having these types see things in the environment that are not actually present. For example, they may see a person, an animal, an object, light or colours which are not present in the environment and no other person can see as they don’t exist in reality. Seeing colours, geometric shapes, lights are termed as simple visual hallucinations while seeing life like images eg., persons, animals or objects are referred to as complex visual hallucinations 

  1. Olfactory hallucinations

In this type a person smells something which is not actually there. This type is also called phantosmia. For example he may smell a foul unpleasant odour, or some odour of something rotten, spoiled or burnt.

Apart from above it can also arise from lack of sleep. Other than this it can be linked with seizures (fits), migraine, anxiety, depression, high fever, postpartum (means after child birth) mental health disorders, PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder), parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, head injury, kidney/liver failure, brain cancer, vision problems, vision loss and hearing loss.
