"Once you have settled into a story about your pain you are extremely reluctant to challenge it. I feared that if I messed with the story I had lived with for so long the pain would run wild." J Hari
DEPRESSION IS A SYSTEMIC WHOLE-BODY DIS-EASE THAT IS UNIQUE TO EACH INDIVIDUAL. IT IS A COMPLEX CONDITION THAT CAN BE LINKED DIRECTLY TO POOR GUT FUNCTION, ENDOCRINE AND IMMUNE SYSTEM DISORDERS, CHRONIC INFLAMMATION WITH POTENTIAL CAUSATIONS RANGING FROM ACCIDENT AND INJURY TO CHILDHOOD TRAUMA.
ANTIDEPRESSANTS ARE A METHOD OF "DISEASE MANAGEMENT" DESIGNED TO ALTER THE BRAIN CHEMISTRY AND AS SUCH their therapeutic potential is LIMITED. an estimated 65 - 80% oF PEOPLE ON THESE DRUGS ARE depressed again within a year, WHICH MEANS FOR THE MAJORITY OF PEOPLE THEY IN FACT DO NOT WORK.
HOMEOPATHY MOVES BEYOND "DISEASE MANAGEMENT" IN A PROCESS THAT TRANSFORMS FEELINGS OF BEING CONTROLLED AND UNAPPRECIATED INTO A SENSE OF VALUE, BELONGING AND MEANINGFUL LIFE PURPOSE.
WE ACKNOWLEDGE THAT ANTIDEPRESSANTS AND OTHER CONVENTIONAL MEDICATIONS MAY BE APPROPRIATE AND WORK SUPPORTIVELY ALONGSIDE THESE WITH HOMEOPATHIC MEDICINES WHERE AN INTEGRATIVE APPROACH IS REQUIRED. WE OFFER AN INDIVIDUALISED TREATMENT PROCESS THAT WILL STRENGTHEN ANY WEAKENED BODY SYSTEMS WHILE ADDRESSING THE UNMET PSYCHOLOGICAL NEEDS THAT ARE THE FULCRUM OF DEPRESSION.
