Best Homeopathic Treatment for Lack of Self Confidence

The faith in oneself and one’s abilities is known as confidence. A confident person has the courage to stand up for his or her beliefs and is ready to face challenges. Confident people don’t fear failure and are willing to learn new things and take risks. They also have a positive view about life and circumstances. On the other hand, a person who lacks self confidence doesn’t have faith in their abilities. They have a negative view of life and low self esteem. They also criticize their own self. Individuals who suffer from low self confidence feel that they are not good enough and won’t be able to perform. There is also a fear of failure. It is not as if the patient lacks the ability to perform a task; rather they lack faith in their abilities. Lack of self confidence may lead to anxiety, depression, social withdrawal, avoiding new challenges and facing new situations, and poor relationships. Such patients may also start taking drugs or alcohol. Lack of self confidence and low self esteem usually begins in childhood. Low confidence can arise from a number of factors. Some of these are a profound mental or physical insult in the past, being bullied, facing excessive criticism from others during childhood, being overprotected, having domineering or over demanding parents, and high expectations from others.Homeopathic treatment for lack of self confidence uses natural medicines that help a person build up confidence levels. These medicines can be taken along with psychotherapy to achieve the best results. They help change the patient’s perspective from negative to positive thoughts.

Homeopathic Medicines For Building Up Self Confidence

A homeopathic medicine for lack of self confidence is best selected after taking a complete case history in an individual case. While taking the case history, the emphasis should be on identifying the reason for low esteem and low self confidence; since the origin of the problem in such cases is deeply rooted. Homeopathic treatment for lack of self confidence helps in removing obstacles that hinder healthy psychological development leading to low esteem and its results like depression.The most prominent medicines for the homeopathic treatment for lack of self confidence are Aurum Met, Lycopodium, Staphysagria, Silicea, and Argentum Nitricum.

1. Aurum Met – Homeopathic Medicine to Boost Self Confidence in Persons with a Self Criticizing Nature

Aurum Met is a useful homeopathic medicine for lack of self confidence. This medicine is suitable for patients lacking in confidence and suffering from a self-criticising nature. They feel that they are worthless and have no value. They blame themselves for trivial things that go wrong and have difficulty dealing with contradiction from others. Aurum Met is also used for people with poor confidence levels who go into depression due to the loss of love. Hopelessness is another feature that accompanies the above symptoms. Some patients may get suicidal. Aurum Met also works well in individuals who have been burdened with a lot of responsibility at a very early stage in life.

2. Lycopodium – Homeopathic Medicine for Boosting Self Confidence in Persons who Avoid Undertaking New Tasks

Lycopodium is an important homeopathic medicine for lack of self confidence. It is used for individuals who lack self confidence and are averse to taking on new tasks. They fear failure and don’t like to face new situations. Lycopodium is also used when there is an aversion to take on responsibilities because of the fear of failure. Lycopodium also works well when a person has been dominated by parents during childhood.

3. Staphysagria – Homeopathic Medicine to Help Build Self Confidence in Persons with Low Self Esteem Due to a Deep Insult in the Past

Staphysagria is another prominent homeopathic medicine for lack of self confidence. Staphysagria works well in a patients with a history of humiliation; some mental, physical, or sexual abuse; a profound insult; or some shameful incident. Staphysagria is also used for children who feel unloved or uncared for, and end up with low confidence levels. Staphysagria helps raise self confidence in persons who are weak spirited and have low self esteem. Such patients are also extremely sensitive. They get hurt very easily, tend to get offended, feel insulted too often because of little things, and are very concerned about the opinions of others.

4. Silicea – Homeopathic Medicine for Lack of Self Confidence Levels in Persons Who are Timid and Suffer from Low Confidence

Silicea is an effective homeopathic treatment for lack of self confidence. It works well for raising the self confidence levels in individuals who are very timid and lack self-confidence. They are uncomfortable appearing in public and lack the courage to speak in front of a group of people. They are unable to express themselves properly and have a very mild, sensitive, nervous and yielding nature. Such people consider themselves incapable of doing any work because of the fear of failure.

5. Argentum Nitricum – Homeopathic Treatment for Lack of  Self Confidence when Accompanied by Marked Anxiety

Argentum Nitricum is a well indicated homeopathic medicine for lack of self confidence in cases where it is accompanied by anxiety. These individuals do everything in a great hurry and are very impatient. They also suffer from marked anticipatory anxiety. If they have to go to a new place, do something new, or appear somewhere, the anxiety levels shoot up. Diarrhea may also accompany anxiety. Such patients fear crowds, a mishappening, an impending evil, and even high buildings.

Aoa sir, i have been facing problems, for many years, like lack of confidence, feeling very much uncomfortableness and disturbance to go to gatherings particularly speaking in front of people though my colleagues or strangers, facing anxiety, frustration and fear to speake before them. I manage to convey by any way finally but cannot as i planned to do in my mind bec just a moment before speaking, forgot all that due to fear, as sudden attack of fear even makes my body language exposed to sime extent in front of other whether it is a small gathering or otherwise. So sir kindly i need your kind treatment whatever it is.

    Hello Dr. Sharma,
    I’m trying to help a 19 year old male who has locked himself up (shut-in) in his family home for one whole year. He stopped all his academic education and all he does is sleep during the day and play interactive computer games at night. He is now weighing 130 kilos because all he does is eat, sleep and sit. He refuses all professional help so I was thinking that homeopathy might help this individual.

    Your advice will be greatly appreciated.

    kind regards
