Schizophrenia is one of the most mysterious mental disorders. It not only affects the mental health of a person, but decrease the life expectancy by 12-15 years. This disorder was first time named “Dementia Precox (premature dementia)” by Emil Kraepelin. Later Eugen Bleuler renamed it “Schizophrenia”. It is a common disorder with population prevalence of about 1%. The onset is earlier in males than females. Symptoms typically emerge in adolescence and early adulthood but childhood onset may occur.
There are no specific causes of this disorder, but there are some precipitating or associated factors. These are:
(1) Fetal life stresses like hypoxia, maternal infection, maternal stress during pregnancy and maternal malnutrition.
(2) Some studies have shown that children who as adults will be diagnosed with schizophrenia have, as compared to their peers, a higher incidence of non- specific emotional and behavior disturbances, psycopathological changes and intellectual and language alterations.
(3) Environmental factors include urbanization and migration. Living in an urban environment has been associated read more [...]
Autism is the common term for a range of disabilities medically classified as Pervasive Developmental Disorders (PDD). Autism Spectrum Disorder is characterized by qualitative differences in the development of cognitive, language, social or motor skills, and these are usually apparent before age three. Research evidence suggests that Autism Spectrum Disorder may result from an underlying difficulty with expressive movement and its regulation, severely challenging the individual to keep body movements, including sensory responses, in control. These sensorimotor problems can make it difficult to respond consistently and productively to other individuals and to the environment.
Autism Spectrum Disorder occurs in approximately fifteen out of every 10,000 births and is four times more common among males than females.
Autism Spectrum Disorder – CAUSE
No one knows exactly what causes Autism Spectrum Disorder, but scientists think that both genetic and environmental factors might play a role. While autism was once erroneously believed to arise from stresses in a child’s psychological environment, modern medical evidence suggests that irregularities in the development of the brain read more [...]
I had just finished reading a book on treating Autism and was in the middle of reading another when the opportunity to assist a three year old boy with Autism presented itself at my clinic. Martin’s mother Kate had made an appointment for Martin’s chronic ear infections as there had been no improvement in his ear infections after five rounds of antibiotics. Armed with enthusiasm, insight and encouragement from my reading material, I relished the opportunity to speak with Kate about how we could treat Martin’s overall well being including his ear infections. Kate was amazed and excited with the possibilities presented.
The following case history is of a three year old boy clinically assessed as Autistic and his treatment with homoeopathic medicine. To protect the family’s privacy, the true names of the mother and son have been changed.

What are Panic Attacks?
Panic attacks are severe episodes of sudden anxiety, apprehension or fear. They occur without any real or apparent danger and mostly bring on some form of physical reaction such as dizziness, heart palpitations, dyspnea, nausea and faintness. Panic attacks can be truly frightening and leave the person shaken and deeply upset. Once the mind goes into panic mode, the person losses control over his reactions. Certain situations such as a trauma, past experience or phobia can act as triggers.
Advantage of Homeopathic Treatment
Homeopathy is a proven alternative treatment option for anxiety related disorders such as panic attacks. Natural and safe, Homeopathic medicines are deep acting and have no side effects on the body. Unlike the conventional mode of medicine, Homeopathic medicines do not supress the disease and its symptoms. In fact, they attack the disorder at the root and set off the body’s own restorative processes, making it strong enough to completely eradicate the disease. Supressing the disease process makes it stubborn. Homeopathic medicines are a natural, healing alternative. More importantly, they are not habit-forming in nature and can be taken read more [...]

Fear is probably the most prolific and predominant human emotion. That this is so is evident from a study of history in the folk lore, myth, and human experience down the ages.
Fear is an underlying, motive in religion, in politics, in social customs and behaviour, stemming from man's determined desire for survival.
Fear, the sensation, in its various forms and degrees, in the psychological component of response to threat. Any kind of threat or menace calls forth an immediate response on the part of the individual thus put at risk. The threat may be to the person, endangering life or limb; it may be threat to the pocket, presaging financial loss or ruin;it may be a threat to prestige, involving damage to reputation or social disgrace.
Faced by immediate threat the primitive reaction is a desire to run away, to escape, to take refuge in flight. An alternative, when escape is not feasible, is to resist, to fight, to take counter action. Perhaps neither course may be possible, but in any case the one threatened cannot but react to the situation. The first response will almost certainly be one of fear, which may give place later to anger. The threat may be read more [...]
The primary characteristic underlying the Natrum mur. pathology is introversion arising out of a feeling of great vulnerability to emotional injury. Natrum mur. patients are emotionally very sensitive; they experience the emotional pain of others, and feel that any form of rejection, ridicule, humiliation or grief would be personally intolerable. Consequently, they create a wall of invulnerability, become enclosed in their own worlds, and prefer to maintain control over their circumstances. They avoid being hurt at all costs.
People susceptible to developing the Natrum mur. type of pathology are emotionally sensitive and vulnerable, but quite clear and strong on mental and physical levels. Mentally, they have a high degree of objectivity and awareness, as well as a great sense of responsibility. For this reason, they are likely to be the sympathetic ear to which others turn when distressed. The emotional sensitivity and the sense of responsibility readily lead such people into fields of counseling, psychotherapy, the ministry etc. While listening sympathetically to someone else’s suffering, such people maintain their objectivity and appear to be very strong. They internally absorb read more [...]
