Psychosomatic means mind (psyche) and body (soma). A psychosomatic disorder is a disease which involves both mind and body. Some physical diseases are thought to be particularly prone to be made worse by mental factors such as stress and anxiety. Some physical diseases are thought to be particularly prone to be made worse by mental factors such as stress and anxiety. For example, psoriasis, eczema, stomach ulcers, high blood pressure and heart disease

How can the mind affect physical diseases?

It is well known that the mind can cause physical symptoms. For example, when we are afraid or anxious we may develop:

  • A fast heart rate
  • A thumping heart (palpitations)
  • Feeling sick (nauseated)
  • Shaking (tremor)
  • Sweating
  • Dry mouth
  • Chest pain
  • Headaches
  • A knot in the stomach
  • Fast breathing

These physical symptoms are due to increased activity of nervous impulses sent from the brain to various parts of the body and to the release of adrenaline (epinephrine) into the bloodstream when we are anxious. However, the exact way that the mind can cause certain other symptoms is not clear. Also, how the mind can affect actual physical diseases (rashes, blood pressure, etc) is not clear. It may have something to do with nervous impulses going to the body, which we do not fully understand. There is also some evidence that the brain may be able to affect certain cells of the immune system, which is involved in various physical diseases.

Rhinitis or coryza

Rhinitis or coryza is irritation and inflammation of the mucous membrane inside the nose. Common symptoms of rhinitis are a stuffy nose, runny nose, and post-nasal drip. Watery secretion from nose accompanied by itching and sneezing. There are reported case in which the congestion grows out of emotional disturbances and stress reaction.


Asthma is a disease affecting the airways that carry air to and from your lungs. People who suffer from this chronic condition (long-lasting or recurrent) are said to be asthmatic. The inside walls of an asthmatic's airways are swollen or inflamed. This swelling or inflammation makes the airways extremely sensitive to irritations and increases your susceptibility to an allergic reaction. As inflammation causes the airways to become narrower, less air can pass through them, both to and from the lungs. Symptoms of the narrowing include wheezing (a hissing sound while breathing), chest tightness, breathing problems, and coughing. Asthmatics usually experience these symptoms most frequently during the night and the early morning. EMOTIONAL AND PSYCHOLOGICAL factors contribute important role in ASTHMA

HOMOEOPATHIC MANAGEMENT OF ASTHMA IN OUR CLINIC Constitutional homeopathic care can help to improve a person’s general health on deeper levels and possibly reduce the tendency toward asthma. Correctly-chosen remedies can help reduce distress during asthma attacks; however, emergency medical care must be sought in any serious attack.

If a person has great difficulty breathing, looks very pale, has bluish lips, or seems to be very weak or in danger of losing consciousness, seek a doctor’s help immediately.


Tachycardia is a heart rate that exceeds the normal range. A resting heart rate over 100 beats per minute is generally accepted as tachycardia. The following signs and symptoms of tachycardia are possible:

Accelerated heart rate (fast pulse)

Chest pain (angina) - chest pain or discomfort that occurs when the heart muscle does not get enough blood. Angina is more likely if the heartbeat is very fast and the heart is being put under a lot of strain.



Hypotension (low blood pressure)


Palpitations - an uncomfortable racing feeling in the chest, sensation of irregular and/or forceful beating of the heart.

Panting (shortness of breath)

Sudden weakness

Syncope (fainting)

The following conditions are linked to a higher risk of tachycardia :

People over the age of 60 have a significantly higher risk of experiencing tachycardia, compared to younger individuals, Anxiety, Consuming large quantities of alcohol regularly, Consuming large quantities of caffeine, Genetics - people who have close relatives (e.g. parents) with tachycardia or other heart rhythm disorders have a higher risk of developing the condition themselves, compared to other individuals, Heart disease, Hypertension (high blood pressure),Mental stress, Smoking, Using recreational drugs.

Anginal syndrome characterized by chest pain resulting from an imbalance between oxygen supply and demand, and is most commonly caused by the inability of atherosclerotic coronary arteries to perfuse the heart under conditions of increased myocardial oxygen consumption.

Hypertension (HTN) or high blood pressure

Hypertension (HTN) or high blood pressure , sometimes called arterial hypertension, is a chronic medical condition in which the blood pressure in the arteries is elevated. Blood pressure is summarised by two measurements, systolic and diastolic, which depend on whether the heart muscle is contracting (systole) or relaxed between beats (diastole). This equals the maximum and minimum pressure, respectively. Normal blood pressure at rest is within the range of 100-140mmHg systolic (top reading) and 60-90mmHg diastolic (bottom reading). High blood pressure is said to be present if it is often at or above 140/90 mmHg. Essential hypertension (also called primary hypertension or idiopathic hypertension) is the form of hypertension that by definition, has no identifiable cause. Essential hypertension is caused by emotional factors, stress, etc.

Hypertension is classified as either primary (essential) hypertension or secondary hypertension; about 90–95% of cases are categorized as "primary hypertension" which means high blood pressure with no obvious underlying medical cause.

The remaining 5–10% of cases (secondary hypertension) are caused by other conditions that affect the kidneys, arteries, heart or endocrine system.

Several studies have demonstrated the influences of:

  • Weight gain,
  • Insulin resistance
  • Salt intake
  • Alcohol use
  • Elevated haematocrit
  • Hypertriglyceridaemia and
  • Rapid heart rate.


• Headache

• Dizziness

• Fainting

• Blurred vision

• Chest pain

• Difficulty in breathing

• Palpitation

History of diabetes, asthma, heart disease, gout, drinking, smoking, self-medication or use of oral contraceptives should also be brought to the notice of the doctor.


In the case of essential hypertension, homoeopathy focuses on the patient with the hypertension, rather than on the hypertension itself. The totality of various characteristic signs and symptoms exhibited by this patient leads the homoeopath to the similar remedy. The similar remedy relieves the totality of symptoms and with it the symptoms of an elevated blood pressure.

A peptic ulcer

A Peptic ulcer, stomach ulcer or gastric ulcer, also known as peptic ulcer disease(PUD), Peptic ulcers are open sores that develop on the inside lining of your esophagus, stomach and the upper portion of your small intestine. The most common symptom of a peptic ulcer is abdominal pain.

Peptic ulcers include:

  • Gastric ulcers that occur on the inside of the stomach
  • Esophageal ulcers that occur inside the hollow tube (esophagus) that carries food from your throat to your stomach
  • Duodenal ulcers that occur on the inside of the upper portion of your small intestine (duodenum)

The following also raise your risk for peptic ulcers:

  • Drinking too much alcohol
  • Regular use of aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen, or other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Taking aspirin or NSAIDs once in a while is safe for most people.
  • Smoking cigarettes or chewing tobacco
  • Being very ill, such as being on a breathing machine
  • Having radiation treatments
  • spicy foods or a stressful job situation can cause peptic ulcers. Doctors now know that a bacterial infection may cause peptic ulcer. An ulcer may or may not have symptoms.

When symptoms occur, they may include :

· A gnawing or burning pain in the middle or upper stomach between meals or at night

  • Bloating
  • Heartburn

· Nausea or vomiting

In severe cases, symptoms can include:

  • Dark or black stool (due to bleeding)
  • Vomiting blood (that can look like "coffee-grounds")
  • Weight loss
  • Severe pain in the mid to upper abdomen


Peptic ulcer disease is a constitutional disease that finds its expression at the level of the digestive system. Being a constitutional disorder, it calls for constitutional treatment. Homoeopathic approach towards the management of Peptic ulcer disease involves the evaluation of the complaint in details while taking into account individual factors such as one’s

1. personal and

2. family history while planning a long-term treatment.

Since the treatment targets the root cause, Homeopathy offers long-term cure instead of temporary relief. It treats at a deeper level of immunity and enhances the healing capacity of the body. Homeopathy can also help to prevent complications of Peptic ulcers.


A migraine is a severe, painful headache that is often preceded or accompanied by sensory warning signs such as flashes of light, blind spots, tingling in the arms and legs, nausea, vomiting, and increased sensitivity to light and sound. The excruciating pain that migraines bring can last for hours or even days. Pulsating and throbbing type of head pain. During the headache, an artery enlarges that is located on the outside of the skull just under the skin of the temple (temporal artery). This causes a release of chemicals that cause inflammation, pain, and further enlargement of the artery. A migraine headache causes the sympathetic nervous system to respond with feelings of nausea, diarrhea, and vomiting. This response also delays the emptying of the stomach into the small intestine (affecting food absorption), decreases blood circulation (leading to cold hands and feet), and increases sensitivity to light and sound. Many people experience migraines with auras just before or during the head pain, but most do not.

Auras are perceptual disturbances such as:

  • confusing thoughts or experiences
  • the perception of strange lights, sparkling or flashing lights
  • lines in the visual field
  • blind spots
  • pins and needles in an arm or leg
  • stiffness in the shoulders, neck or limbs
  • unpleasant smells

What causes migraines?

Some people who suffer from migraines can clearly identify triggers or factors that cause the headaches, but many cannot. Potential migraine triggers include:

Allergies and allergic reactions, Bright lights, loud noises, and certain odors or perfumes, Physical or emotional stress, Changes in sleep patterns or irregular sleep, Smoking or exposure to smoke, Skipping meals or fasting, Alcohol, Menstrual cycle fluctuations, birth control pills, hormone fluctuations during menopause onset, Tension headaches, Foods containing tyramine (red wine, aged cheese, smoked fish, chicken livers, figs, and some beans), monosodium glutamate (MSG), or nitrates (like bacon, hot dogs, and salami), Other foods such as chocolate, nuts, peanut butter, avocado, banana, citrus, onions, dairy products, and fermented or pickled foods.

How is migraine treated and prevented?

  • getting enough sleep
  • reducing stress
  • drinking plenty of water
  • avoiding certain foods
  • regular physical exercise


Homeopathy deals with the principle of individualization. In treatment of migraine it considers the man as a whole, rather than the disease. No two persons are alike in health or in disease. Every individual is characterized by some unique features which serve to denote that a particular individual is different from another individual belonging to the same class of group even in disease like migraine.

Specific Phobia

Specific Phobia -- The term "phobia" means "fear." A specific phobia is an irrational fear of some specific thing or situation. The fear is "irrational" in the sense that it is all out of proportion to the actual danger presented. For example, some people are terrified when they see a spider,Asthma though it is on a wall 20 feet away and could not possibly do the person any harm from that distance. A common phobia is agoraphobia (literally, "fear of the marketplace"), in which a person develops a fear of being amongst crowds of people. Acrophobia is a fear of heights. Agoraphobia is a fear of public places, and claustrophobia is a fear of closed-in places. If you become anxious and extremely self-conscious in everyday social situations, you could have a social phobia. Other common phobias involve tunnels, highway driving, water, flying, animals and blood.

Panic Disorder

Panic Disorder -- This is a disorder characterized by unforewarned attacks of extreme dread, as if some terrible thing is about to befall the person, generally lasting only a couple of minutes and leaving the person physically exhausted because of the extreme activation of the physiological mechanisms aroused by terror. These attacks do not appear to be caused by any particular situation or thing, but if they occur several times within a given context, the person may develop agoraphobia as a secondary effect. Panic attacks are characterized by a fear of disaster or of losing control even when there is no real danger. A person may also have a strong physical reaction during a panic attack. It may feel like having a heart attack. Panic attacks can occur at any time, and many people with panic disorder worry about and dread the possibility of having another attack. SYMPTOMS INCLUDE

  • Sudden and repeated attacks of fear
  • A feeling of being out of control during a panic attack
  • An intense worry about when the next attack will happen

· A fear or avoidance of places where panic attacks have occurred in the past

· Physical symptoms during an attack, such as a pounding or racing heart, sweating, breathing problems, weakness or dizziness, feeling hot or a cold chill, tingly or numb hands, chest pain, or stomach pain.

Post-traumatic Stress

Post-traumatic Stress Disorder -- In World War I, soldiers who came down with this were said to be "shell shocked," the idea being that the symptoms must have resulted from being exposed to too many concussions from exploding artillary shells. Actually, the disorder arises when people are exposed to severely stressful, life-threatening situations in which they perceive that they have no control over the outcome. Those affected have flashbacks about the situation in which they were helpless, nightmares, difficulty sleeping, and find it impossible to put the situation behind them and get on with their lives. Situations inducing the disorder include military combat, natural disasters (e.g., being caught in an earthquake), accidents (e.g., a plane crash or train wreck) and being taken hostage, among others.

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder -- The name comes from two related symptoms: obsessions and compulsions. Obsessions are thoughts, usually of a distressing nature, that constantly intrude into awareness, over and over again. Compulsions are ritualistic behaviors the person feels to perform over and over again, because not to perform them, means experiencing rapidly increasing levels of anxiety. Certain Homoeopathic drugs and behavior modification techniques have been used to treat the disorder. Most people with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) fall into one of the following categories:

Washers are afraid of contamination. They usually have cleaning or hand-washing compulsions.

Checkers repeatedly check things (oven turned off, door locked, etc.) that they associate with harm or danger.

Doubters and sinners are afraid that if everything isn’t perfect or done just right something terrible will happen or they will be punished.

Counters and arrangers are obsessed with order and symmetry. They may have superstitions about certain numbers, colors, or arrangements.

Hoarders fear that something bad will happen if they throw anything away. They compulsively hoard things that they don’t need or use.

Common obsessive thoughts in obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) include :

  • Fear of being contaminated by germs or dirt or contaminating others.
  • Fear of causing harm to yourself or others.
  • Intrusive sexually explicit or violent thoughts and images.
  • Excessive focus on religious or moral ideas.
  • Fear of losing or not having things you might need.
  • Order and symmetry: the idea that everything must line up “just right.”
  • Superstitions; excessive attention to something considered lucky or unlucky.

Common compulsive behaviors in obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) include:

  • Excessive double-checking of things, such as locks, appliances, and switches.
  • Repeatedly checking in on loved ones to make sure they’re safe.
  • Counting, tapping, repeating certain words or doing other senseless things to reduce anxiety.
  • Spending a lot of time washing or cleaning.
  • Ordering or arranging things “just so.”
  • Praying excessively or engaging in rituals triggered by religious fear.
  • Accumulating “junk” such as old newspapers or empty food containers.

FOUR PLUS ONE Steps for Conquering Symptoms of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

Psychiatrist Jeffrey Schwartz, author of Brain Lock: Free Yourself from Obsessive-Compulsive Behavior, offers the following four steps for dealing with OCD:

  • RELABEL – Recognize that the intrusive obsessive thoughts and urges are the result of OCD. For example, train yourself to say, "I don't think or feel that my hands are dirty. I'm having an obsession that my hands are dirty." Or, "I don't feel that I have the need to wash my hands. I'm having a compulsive urge to perform the compulsion of washing my hands."
  • REATTRIBUTE – Realize that the intensity and intrusiveness of the thought or urge is caused by OCD; it is probably related to a biochemical imbalance in the brain. Tell yourself, "It's not me—it’s my OCD," to remind you that OCD thoughts and urges are not meaningful, but are false messages from the brain.
  • REFOCUS – Work around the OCD thoughts by focusing your attention on something else, at least for a few minutes. Do another behavior. Say to yourself, "I'm experiencing a symptom of OCD. I need to do another behavior."
  • REVALUE – Do not take the OCD thought at face value. It is not significant in itself. Tell yourself, "That's just my stupid obsession. It has no meaning. That's just my brain. There's no need to pay attention to it." Remember: You can't make the thought go away, but neither do you need to pay attention to it. You can learn to go on to the next behavior.

Generalized Anxiety Disorder

Generalized Anxiety Disorder -- This gets its name from the theoretical notion that what started as specific phobias has spread though generalization to almost all situations. The person suffering from this disorder experiences continuous, high levels of "free-floating" anxiety that does not seem to have been triggered by any specific thing or situation. The symptoms of anxiety are often treated by psychological therapy aimed and uncovering and eliminating the source of the anxiety and homoeopathic drugs.


The Dissociative Disorders

This category includes those psychological disorders that involve a "walling off" of some part of the mind from consciousness. (The walled off parts are said to become "dissociated." Dissociative disorders (DD) are conditions that involve disruptions or breakdowns of memory, awareness, identity or perception. People with dissociative disorders use dissociation, a defense mechanism, pathologically and involuntarily. Dissociative disorders are thought to primarily be caused by ed to get out of bed, and full of self-loathing and hopelessness over being unemploye psychological trauma. THERE ARE THREE TYPES

  • Dissociative Amnesia
  • Dissociative Fugue
  • Dissociative Identity Disorder (old name: "Multiple Personality)

Dissociative Amnesia

Dissociative Amnesia -- Psychogenic amnesia, or dissociative amnesia, is a memory disorder characterized by sudden retrograde autobiographical memory loss, said to occur for a period of time ranging from hours to years. Dissociative disorders are mental illnesses that involve disruptions or breakdowns of memory, consciousness or awareness, identity and/or perception—mental functions that normally operate smoothly. When one or more of these functions is disrupted, symptoms can result. These symptoms can interfere with a person’s general functioning, including social and work activities, and relationships. The primary symptom of dissociative amnesia is the sudden inability to remember past experiences or personal information. Some people with this disorder also might appear confused and suffer from depression and/or anxiety.

What causes dissociative amnesia?

Dissociative amnesia has been linked to overwhelming stress, which might be the result of traumatic events—such as war, abuse, accidents or disasters—that the person has experienced or witnessed. There also might be a genetic link to the development of dissociative disorders, including dissociative amnesia, since people with these disorders usually have close relatives who have had similar conditions.

Treatments in our centre may include the following:

  • Psychotherapy
  • Cognitive therapy
  • Family therapy
  • Creative therapies (art therapy, music therapy)
  • Clinical hypnosis
  • Psychotherapy

This kind of therapy for mental and emotional disorders uses psychological techniques designed to encourage communication of conflicts and increase insight into problems.

  • Cognitive therapy

This type of therapy focuses on changing dysfunctional thinking patterns and the resulting feelings and behaviors.


There are HOMOEOPATHIC MEDICINES to treat the dissociative disorders.

  • Family therapy

This kind of therapy helps to teach the family about the disorder and its causes, as well as to help family members recognize symptoms of a recurrence.

  • Creative therapies (art therapy, music therapy)

These therapies allow the patient to explore and express his or her thoughts and feelings in a safe and creative way.

  • Clinical hypnosis

This is a treatment method that uses intense relaxation, concentration and focused attention to achieve an altered state of consciousness (awareness), allowing people to explore thoughts, feelings and memories they may have hidden from their conscious minds. The use of hypnosis for fixing dissociative disorders is controversial due to the risk of creating false memories.

Dissociative Fugue

Dissociative Fugue -- The person disappears, forgets their true identity and past, replacing them with an imaginary identity and past, and begins a new life in some other place, but is not conscious of having done these things.

Dissociative Identity Disorder (old name: "Multiple Personality)

Dissociative Identity Disorder (old name: "Multiple Personality )-- Dissociative identity disorder (DID), previously known as multiple personality disorder (MPD), is an extremely rare mental disorder characterized by at least two distinct and relatively enduring identities or dissociated personality states that alternately control a person's behavior, and is accompanied by memory impairment for important information not explained by ordinary forgetfulness. The person develops several alternate personalities, each of which seems like a normal person. The currently "active" personality may or may not have any awareness of what was happening when other personalities were active.

What Are the Symptoms of Dissociative Identity Disorder ?

Dissociative identity disorder is characterized by the presence of two or more distinct or split identities or personality states that continually have power over the person's behavior. With dissociative identity disorder, there's also an inability to recall key personal information that is too far-reaching to be explained as mere forgetfulness. With dissociative identity disorder, there are also highly distinct memory variations, which fluctuate with the person's split personality. The "alters" or different identities have their own age, sex, or race. Each has his or her own postures, gestures, and distinct way of talking. Sometimes the “alters” are imaginary people; sometimes they are animals. As each personality reveals itself and controls the individuals' behavior and thoughts, it's called "switching." Switching can take seconds to minutes to days. When under hypnosis, the person's different "alters" or identities may be very responsive to the therapist's requests.

Treatments in our centre may include the following:


Psychotherapy is the treatment of choice for individuals suffering from any type of dissociative disorder. Approaches vary widely, but generally take an individual modality (as opposed to family, group or couples therapy) and emphasize the integration of the various personality states into one, cohesive whole personality.


The use of medication is recommended. If medication is prescribed, it should be carefully monitored.

Bipolar Disorder (Manic-Depressive Disorder)

Bipolar Disorder (Manic-Depressive Disorder)

We all have our ups and downs, but with bipolar disorder, these peaks and valleys are more severe. The symptoms of bipolar disorder can hurt your job and school performance, damage your relationships, and disrupt your daily life. And although it’s treatable, many people don’t recognize the warning signs and get the help they need. Since bipolar disorder tends to worsen without treatment, it’s important to learn what the symptoms look like. Recognizing the problem is the first step to getting better. Bipolar disorder (also known as manic depression) causes serious shifts in mood, energy, thinking, and behavior —from the highs of mania on one extreme, to the lows of depression on the other. More than just a fleeting good or bad mood, the cycles of bipolar disorder last for days, weeks, or months. And unlike ordinary mood swings, the mood changes of bipolar disorder are so intense that they interfere with your ability to function.

During a manic episode : a person might impulsively quit a job, charge up huge amounts on credit cards, or feel rested after sleeping two hours. During a depressive episode: the same person might be too tird and in debt.

Bipolar Disorder gets its name from the fact that the person alternates between two "poles" along a continuoum of emotion running from mania at one extreme to severe depression at the other. In most cases, the person cycles between these two extremes over a period of days, weeks, or months, with periods of apparent normality in between. During the manic phase the person exhibits agitation, an emotional high where everything seems possible, high energy with little apparent need for sleep, a flood of ideas coming one right after the other, and irrationalty. During the depressive phase the opposite is evident: little energy, difficulty in initiating activity, slowed thought processes, serious depression. Irrationality is again present -- the person may believe that he or she has done some horrible thing for which they are being punished, for example.

HOMOEOPATHIC treatment and support for Bipolar Disorder , can lead a rich and fulfilling life.

The Somatoform Disorders

"Soma" means "body," so these are disorders with some obvious connection to the state of the body. Included are the following two diagnoses:


Hypochondriasis – Hypochondriasis or hypochondria (sometimes referred to as health phobia or health anxiety) refers to excessive preoccupancy or worry about having a serious illness.

Warning signs that a person might have hypochondria include:

· The person has a history of going to many doctors. He or she may even "shop around" for a doctor who will agree that he or she has a serious illness.

· The person recently experienced a loss or stressful event.

· The person is overly concerned about a specific organ or body system, such as the heart or the digestive system.

· The person's symptoms or area of concern might shift or change.

· A doctor's reassurance does not calm the person's fears; he or she believes the doctor is wrong or made a mistake.

· The person's concern about illness interferes with his or her work, family, and social life.

· The person may suffer from anxiety, nervousness, and/or depression.

"This is someone who is perpetually convinced that he or she has some dread disease which, if not treated promptly, is going to lead to their demise. If their own diagnosis is not confirmed by the doctor, hypochondriacs are likely to ask for a second opinion or to decide that, well, if it's not THIS, then surely it must be THAT. The disorder may be maintained by a strong fear of death, although being the center of attention and concern of physicians, friends, and others can provide its own source of motivation.

What Causes Hypochondria?

The exact cause of hypochondria is not known. Factors that might be involved in the development of the disorder include:

A history of physical or sexual abuse

A history of having a serious illness as a child

A poor ability to express emotions

A parent or close relative with the disorder; children might learn this behavior if a parent is overly concerned about disease and/or overreacts to even minor illnesses.

An inherited susceptibility for the disorder

HOMOEOPATHIC treatment and support for hypochondria is promising and assist the patient to recover completely.

Conversion Disorder

Conversion Disorder -- The old name comes from the Greek for "womb," suggesting that it is a disorder restricted to females. For reasons unknown it is much more common in women, but men have occasionally been known to develop it. The person with this diagnosis has suffered a loss of sensory experience (sight, hearing, feelings in some part of the body) or a paralysis of some part (e.g., arms, legs), but medical examination reveals no abnormalities. Another symptom is that the person appears to be surprisingly unconcerned about developing the problem and does not wish to seek help to get it cured (indifference toward the disorder). Sigmund Freud suggested that the symptoms appear because they allow the person unconsciously to resolve a "damned if you do, damned if you don't" conflict. Symptoms of a conversion disorder include the loss of one or more bodily functions, such as:

  • Blindness
  • Inability to speak
  • Numbness
  • Paralysis

Common signs of conversion disorder include:

  • A debilitating symptom that begins suddenly
  • History of a psychological problem that gets better after the symptom appears
  • Lack of concern that usually occurs with a severe symptom

Hysteria , in its colloquial use, describes unmanageable emotional excesses. People who are "hysterical" often lose self-control due to an overwhelming fear that may be caused by events in one's past that involved some sort of severe conflict. The fear can be centered on a body parts, or most commonly, on an imagined problem with that body part. The symptoms of hysteria include heaviness in the limbs, severe cramps, a strong feeling of ascending abdominal constriction, continual sighing, difficulty in breathing, constriction in the chest, palpitations, feeling of a foreign body lodged in the throat, swelling of the neck and of the jugular veins, suffocation, headache, clenched teeth, and generalized and voluntary tensing of muscles of locomotion. There are, however, various other symptoms of hysteria, such as an inexplicable urge to perform rigorous activities that will help to let off steam. However, when one tries to perform these activities, such as shouting, one experiences an inability to do so, because of a shut down of the muscular-skeletal system caused by the hysteria

HOMOEOPATHIC management and support for hysteria is promising and assist the patient to recover completely and lead a normal life



Adjustment Disorders:
