In 1866, H. N. Guernsey taught psychiatry at Hahnemann Hospital in Philadelphia, PA and cited 39 homeopathic remedies for the treatment of mental illness. Today, a homeopath looks at mental symptoms, what organs and/or segments of the body are affected, and what the patient’s pathology is to select the best remedy.

At present, there is no cure for many autoimmune diseases like scleroderma, Sjogren’s syndrome, lupus, and multiple sclerosis, among others. Conventional treatments are geared to help slow down disease but such treatments often have their own set of side effects. Homeopathy can be used, along with conventional medicine, to manage symptoms, prevent or limit complications, and even help with the unwanted side effects of conventional medicines. There are many cases from homeopaths around the world reporting such results, although systematic research has yet to be published.

Sadly, mental stress has become part of “normal” life; however, men and women respond differently to mental stressors. Men are usually fixers and engage in exteriorizing behaviors, “doing” things with the intention of solving problems. They tend to deny there is stress or that stress is affecting them. Women tend to be internalizers. They will hold things in, plug along and juggle things the best they can. This can lead to more physical and emotional symptoms. Of course, these are generalizations and gender doesn’t necessarily imply a particular response style to stress. Fortunately, homeopathy can help in either case; we just need to choose the correct medicine in each case.roller coaster
