Twenty different medicines were used to treat the 48 patients, depending on their presenting symptoms. Does this mean someone with depression should be self-selecting from the remedies used? Not at all, especially for profound depression. Severe depression is a serious disorder in which other remedies may be better indicated and self-management is near impossible.
If you would like to use homeopathy in the treatment of depression, please see a qualified homeopath for an appropriate prescription, management and liaison with other healthcare professionals.
