Creating Waves of Awareness

ANXIETY: It is a state of tension associated with apprehension (Fearful expectation or anticipation or painful expectation), worry, feelings of guilt, sense of insecurity and NEED FOR REASSURANCE. Anxiety is largely an anticipatory response, the dynamic precipitating factor being unconscious. Without some degree of anxiety that is in accord with reality, an individual would be without concern for future events, which is so essential to his protection. Morbid anxiety, however, overwhelms the individual and leads to paralysis of decision and action. It is typically accompanied by a host of PSYCHOSOMATIC symptoms, such as profuse perspiration, difficulty in breathing, gastric disturbances, and rapid heartbeat. ANXIETY is a core of all PSYCHOPATHOLOGICAL conditions.

Anxiety is the hallmark of neurosis (a mental or personality disturbance not attributable to any known neurological or organic dysfunction). A feeling of dread (fearful anticipation or expectation), and apprehensiveness in even the most routine circumstances are essential features of anxiety. Neurotic anxiety must be distinguished from fear.

FEAR: It is an emotional response appropriate to the dangers presented by reality; neurotic anxiety is a reaction that is disproportionate to the amount of danger present.

ANXIETY REACTION: The anxiety reaction manifests itself principally in diffuse and consciously experience feelings of anxiety and apprehension for which there seems to be no specific basis in reality. The condition may be chronic and continuous. With the patient always tense and worried, easily upset, and preoccupied with future calamities or past errors.

SYMPTOMS: The moderate, chronic anxiety characteristic of the anxiety reaction may be precipitated periodically into acute anxiety attacks of high intensity by minor environmental stresses. Such attacks are accompanied by palpitation of heart, tremor, difficulty in breathing, and profuse perspiration; sedation may be required. Vague fear of death or catastrophe may be expressed.

TREATMENT AND PROGONOSIS: While the anxiety reaction is the most prevalent of the neurotic adjustment, it responds well to homeopathic therapy. The prognosis under homeopathic treatment is very good. Sedative, narcotics, tranquilizers, hallucinogenic drugs are no answer. All best they may partially palliate, but often they make things worse by suppression or by causing so-called “side effects”. They further give rise to the serious complications of drug-dependence or, even, addiction.

A GREAT ALLAYER OF FEAR AND ANXIETY: In the matter of allaying fear and anxiety homeopathy is of signal value; it possesses remedies capable of replacing panic by calm and anticipatory anxiety by confidence. Fear and anxiety are the root cause of much psychosomatic illness. Along side homeopathic treatment some yogic exercises like ‘Lom-vilom and Pranayam’ and some other light exercises and deep breathing may be done.

FAITH: It is true that the best eliminator of anxiety and fear is faith, confidence that engenders calm, but in as much as the physiological systems of the body are deeply involved a well-planned homeopathic treatment by any nearby expert homeopathic physician is essential.

HOMEOPATHIC THERAPEUTICS: The following homeopathic remedies have been often very valuable in relieving and curing patients with ‘Anxious Personality Disorder’: - Aconitum napellus; Anacardium orientale; Arsenicum album; Causticum; Ignatia amara; Kali phosphoricum; Psorinum; Secale cornutum and many more remedies. Kali Phosphoricum 12x or 30x can be used safely even by laymen, but one should not undertake self-medication, and better consult the nearby homeopathic physician.
