A Case of Depression Treated with Homeopathy
by Osvaldo Cooley, BSc, Med

 

 
Editor's Note: Here's an ATH video on how the remedy–Aurum Metallicum, which is used in this case of depression–is made.

Clinical depression is also known as major depression and unipolar depression and is a very serious problem which affects more than 120 million people around the world every year, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). It affects men, women, children, adolescents and the elderly.

The official definition of clinical depression is based upon the following eight primary criteria:

* Poor appetite with weight loss, or increased appetite with weight gain.
* Insomnia or hypersomnia.
* Physical hyperactivity or inactivity.
* Loss of interest or pleasure in usual activities, or decrease in sexual drive.
* Loss of energy and feelings of fatigue.
* Feelings of worthlessness, self-reproach or inappropriate guilt.
* Diminished ability to think or concentrate.
* Recurrent thoughts of death or suicide.

Usually the presence of five of these eight points indicates depression; an individual suffering from four of these symptoms is also likely to be depressed.

There have been several theories explaining the cause of depression of which two are most popular; first the biopsychosocial model which states that the cause of depression is based on biological, psychological and social causes; and second, the diathesis-stress model which states that people with clinical depression have a pre-existing vulnerability, either genetic or schematic, which has been triggered by a stressful life event.

Three Types of Depression

Major depression which is characterized by the eight points that we already discussed with a particular loss of interest or pleasure in participating in activities that they used to find enjoyable.

Dysthemia which is a less severe episode than major depression and is characterized by a chronic low-mood mental status.

Bipolar disorder in which cycling periods of extreme highs and extreme lows are experienced. When patients are in a depressive state, they show symptoms of major depression; when they are in a manic state, they will have increased amounts of energy and they will exhibit judgment and clarity of thoughts.

Case of Woman with Depression and Asthma

With this case I want to highlight the efficacy of homeopathic treatment in the management of mental or emotional disorders.

One day a very humble-looking lady came to my office, she was dressed in old clothes with some patches all over her skirt; it seemed that she had not had a shower in days and her general appearance was that of a person who does not care about herself.

When she came to my office she was short of breath with a very heavy, productive cough. She was diagnosed many years earlier with having asthma and she was taking the usual medication (salbutamol) for the acute cases and some steroids (prednisolone) for the chronic state. But there was no improvement in her condition.

I started taking the case, and as she was answering my questions I realized that something much more serious than asthma was going on. She was saying that she was very sad at home because her husband abused her, that nobody at home showed any kind of respect for her, not even her three children. Her environment was not the best, she was living in a very small unit with just one room which she, her husband, her three children and her parents-in-law shared. She was doing all the cleaning, cooking, washing and taking care of everything at home, not receiving as a reward anything but abuse.

Living in that kind of environment with the stress and work she was doing, it is understandable that she was not controlling her asthma very well, but the main problem was the emotional symptoms that she was developing.

She was losing weight as she was not eating normally because of a lack of appetite. She told me that she lost around 7 kilos in the last 2 weeks; she was having problems going to sleep, not falling asleep until 2 or 3 am and waking up around 4 or 5 am; and she was pushing herself to do all her duties at home because she was afraid of her husband.

She told me that anything that she used to enjoy in the past was no longer enjoyable for her; she was always feeling tired with no 'force' to even go to the toilet.

All during that consultation she was blaming herself for what was happening in her life, she never blamed her husband or her children or her parents-in-law. She was also carrying all the blame, saying that it was her fault if something was missing at home, if she was unable to finish cleaning, if her husband was upset.  She was convinced that the fault was hers.

Finally she was unable to concentrate when she was trying to perform any task at home, and was making mistakes like dropping glasses etc., until eventually she was having recurrent and persistent thoughts of death.  Although she never tried to kill herself, she was thinking all the time about her death and the different ways in which she might end her life.

She had eight out of eight of the basic symptoms for clinical depression, but her doctor was more preoccupied for her asthmatic symptoms rather than her emotional state.  Having said that, her asthma was, in homeopathic analysis, a consequence of her depression.

The patient was then treated with a very high dose of Aurum metallicum and two weeks later she came back looking very much different, she was clean, and she actually appeared wearing make-up. Her face was smiling and she was not blaming herself about what was happening in her life.  She was more interested in doing many other things.

In conclusion, with just a single dose of Aurum metallicum her improvement was marked, and her asthma was much better.  She told me that the day after the first consultation she started having a lot of mucus running from her nose and mouth, but she also told me that after the medication even though she was having more physical symptoms, straight away she was feeling much better emotionally.
