Medical History

9-year-old boy’ mum reached out to me as he was suffering from migraine headaches nausea and emotional distress. He would wash his hands multiple times a day especially after touching family pets, or any surfaces.  He had a phobia for germs and would panic. Her Mum described him as ‘manic and hyperactive’, and become very aggressive and ‘in your face’.

Case Management

With problems in sleeping, the boy would become angry and wake up screaming and shouting. I prescribed several homeopathic remedies over a period of several months, and he experienced a great improvement in his symptoms, with significantly less distress and handwashing, and much better sleep.  


Homeopathic remedy Agaricus helped him the most to help relieve symptoms of anxiety, hyperactivity, and sleeplessness.

Case Discussion: Homeopathy works only when the proper remedy is found for this specific individual patient, and the right dose is given. This is the reason a Homeopath needs to provide a very comprehensive first consultation. This involves discussing the patient's entire medical background in addition to asking about their everyday lifestyle: such as diet, exercise, fever, & habits. Additionally, it includes questions about their character. The time that is spent reviewing the patient's health is the beginning of the recovery process, which helps them understand why they feel the way you do. Homeopathic medicine not only helps physical symptoms but also soothes and rebalances psychological issues. When a person's worries are out of control, a little dose of the suitable Homeopathic treatment, taken regularly, can help calm those anxieties and restore confidence -- breaking the cycle of fear accompanied by anxiety. ACONITUM NAPELLUS (Acon.), ARSENICUM ALBUM (Ars. Alb.), and PHOSPHORUS (Phos.) Are the commonly used remedies. Though heavy acting, Homeopathic remedies are gentle, safe, non-addictive, and with no side effects. As you can see in this situation, homeopathy can be extremely effective for emotional wellbeing. Additionally, there are remedies for test nerves, anticipatory anxiety, mental exhaustion, and a lot more. Also helpful to note, homeopathic medicines can be obtained at precisely the exact same time as a standard medication since they behave on a deeper level and won't interfere with the effects of whatever medication you might be taking. Sometimes, if you're progressing steadily with homeopathic treatment and only with the approval of your physician, you could have the ability to begin reducing the dose of your typical medication.
