Treating Depression In Children Using Homeopathy

Depression in children and teens can be treated with homeopathy in Mesa, AZDepression is a very common condition. So common that almost every person will experience it in their lives, even children. Depression can effectively be treated with homeopathy in children and teens.

Effects of School on Children

When children go to school, they are thrown into a much different world than the one they are used to at home. Being away from family and their comfort zone is not easy to begin with, and it is much harder when being subjected to stressful situations..

School also demands that children achieve certain standards of physical and mental performance in addition to pleasing the teachers and conforming to rules and regulations. The social and cultural envir­onment is also completely new and often quite challenging for every child.

Depression Stemming from Stress

When children get depression, it does not mean they are not healthy and well-adjusted. It does not mean the parents didn’t do something right. Growing up is the hardest stage in our lives. Children are continually subjected to stress which can lead to depression.

During the growing and developing stage of childhood, there is a great deal of stress that can occur. Adaption to changes and stress is hard on a person mentally, especially a child. Stress can easily turn into depression and that is when we must get help.

How Homeopathy is the Right Approach to a Child’s Depression

Doctors who are trained in the medical field simply prescribe medications that mask the illness, instead of figuring out the underlying cause to truly cure it.

Homeopathy is the right approach to depression because it actually takes care of the problem instead of covering it up. Plus, we want the best for children so of course choosing natural medicine is the healthiest option.


Due to school and the stress of growing up, children can easily get depression. Homeopathy doesn’t just cover up the problem – it gets to the actual causes and treats it naturally. It is important not to self diagnose or self treat this illness. Only an experienced and trained homeopath should evaluate and treat children.

There are very few medical professionals with extensive training in homeopathy. Some homeopaths may have experience in homeopathy but not the medical training for the specific area of behavioral disorders. Choose a practitioner that is trained in classical homeopathy with experience treating behavioral disorders and has medical training.

Homeopathy Effective in Treating Depression

Homeopathy Effective in Treating Depression

In Mesa, AZ we treat depression naturally with homeopathy.Feeling a bit down from time to time is a normal part of life, but when feeling down is replaced by feelings of emptiness and despair, it may be depression.

More than just feeling “blue” depression can make it difficult to function and enjoy life. The things you used to enjoy and friends that once interested you no longer keep your attention. When you’re depressed you’re exhausted all of the time and just making it through the day is almost overwhelming. When struggling with it, things may seem hopeless but with the care of a qualified naturopath physician and treatment with the correct homeopathic medicine you can get better.

Though the precise cause and nature of depression is not clearly understood, it is believed to be related to an imbalance of brain chemicals called neurotransmitters. This chemical imbalance may be caused by one or more of the following factors:

  • Some types of depression run in families, suggesting that the condition can be inherited from parents and grandparents as a genetic predisposition.
  • When this genetic predisposition is amplified through stresses at work or school, it can lead to depression. Stress can also be elevated due to a serious loss, difficult relationship, financial problems or any stressful change in life patterns.
  • People who have low self-esteem and consistently view themselves and the world in general with a pessimistic attitude are easily overwhelmed by stress and prone to depression.
  • Medical illnesses such as stroke, heart attack, cancer, Parkinson’s disease and hormonal disorders can also lead to depressive illness.

Very often a combination of genetic, psychological and environmental factors are involved in the onset of depression.

Homeopathy offers an excellent treatment for all stages of depression and is particularly effective in the early stages of the disorder. A wide variety of symptoms can be dealt with successfully through homeopathic care. Homeopathy can positively influence personality traits that are at the base of the disease.

The important factor is that when genetic predispositions are coupled with environmental stress the result is depression. Homeopathic medicines are particularly successful treating depression through their deep acting nature, countering genetic tendencies. Homeopathic medicines address the root cause of the disease and work to prevent a relapse or recurrence of the condition. And unlike other conventional medicines, homeopathy is free of negative side-effects.
