Depression in Kids
Childhood is supposed to be a time of joyfulness and cheer.
A time of imagination and play, where the world is full of endless possibilities. But unfortunately for some children, that joy has been lost. That happiness and excitement has been replaced by doom and gloom. You look into your child’s eyes and that glimmer is gone, and all you can see is pain. As a parent this breaks your heart into a million pieces, you want nothing more than for you child to have the best and happiest life possible. But despite your best efforts, you just don’t know how to pull her out of this funk.
You know you need to do something to help your kid stop suffering.
But medications are so scary and other alternatives are just so confusing. You have read that they can cause suicidal thoughts, especially in younger kids. And really, medications just suppress symptoms, and what you really want is for your kid to heal. To really get better, to the point that they don’t need meds for the rest of their lives.
Homeopathic medicine is the answer you have been looking for.
Homeopathic medicine can bring back that happiness, and that light in your child’s eyes. And the best part is, homeopathic medicine is safe and does not come with the unwanted side effects that conventional medications do!
“Lindsey” was a 15 y/o F who came to see me for help with her depression and suicidal ideation. She reported that her sadness started when she was 10 years old, and it had progressively gotten worse since then. Her sadness had become her “normal.” She reported feeling sad for no reason, and crying every single day. She felt unloved and all alone. She felt like it was all her fault that she felt sad, and that made her feel like she was a bad person. She had a history of cutting that she did as a way to physically release the pain she was feeling inside. She felt much better with any kind of consolation, and felt much worse when she was alone. We started homeopathic treatment with Pulsatilla pratensis, and her depression improved immediately.
“Elizabeth” was a 13 y/o girl who came to see me for concerns of depression, suicidal ideation, anxiety, panic attacks, and a history a trauma and grief. She described her depression as feeling overly emotional, especially with anger. She had a tendency to try to suppress this anger, which would then boil up in side of her until she erupted with rage. We started homeopathic treatment with Staphysagria which helped to resolve her anger and sadness, as well as her unresolved grief and trauma. After we cleared these layers in her emotional state, her homeopathic remedy was changed to Phosphorus to further address her underlying anxiety. After several months of homeopathic treatment, Elizabeth became the happy, relaxed, and joyful girl that she had not been for a very long time.
Homeopathy is a great treatment option for kids that are suffering with mental health challenges. This is because homeopathic medicine treats the unique symptoms that your child is suffering with, and stimulates true healing in the body and brain. Homeopathic medicine also treats a person’s susceptibility to illness, and early and successful treatment can prevent your child from having a lifetime of struggle with mental illness.
