A “remarkable” case of depression and its homeopathic treatment

Although the spiritual roots of homeopathy are embedded deep within the Old Testament, it was Dr. Samuel Hahnemann’s scientific inquiries more than 200 years ago that paved the way for homeopathy’s use in the modern era.

by Dr. Chad Goetz — 

Disheveled, grumpy, but most of all sad and depressed, Samantha was at her wits’ end about how utterly miserable she perceived herself and her life circumstances to be. She was 42 years old, had never been married, had no children and had a job she despised. On top of this, she felt fatigued almost all the time and had suffered from environmental allergies for years.

In pursuing allopathic treatment, she was placed on Effexor for depression and Benadryl for allergy symptoms. Although the Benadryl temporarily alleviated her stuffy nose and watery eyes, two years on Effexor did nothing to improve her mental state.

Utterly out of options, Samantha turned to homeopathy, after hearing her friend talk about the impressive results she had obtained under homeopathic care.

Although the spiritual roots of homeopathy are embedded deep within the Old Testament, it was Dr. Samuel Hahnemann’s scientific inquiries more than 200 years ago that paved the way for homeopathy’s use in the modern era. This timeline is delineated in Hahnemann’s penetrating treatise on homeopathy, The Organon of Medicine. Homeopathy is based on a profound and thorough understanding of disease, and how it can most effectively and permanently be cured.

From a homeopathic standpoint, true disease is a purely spiritual phenomenon that adversely affects a person’s spiritual vital force — an event which manifests itself in the form of symptoms experienced on the mental, emotional and/or physical levels of one’s being.

A homeopath’s job is to find a substance in nature (whether of plant, animal or mineral origin) with the capacity to effectively annihilate the spiritual disease state within the individual. When this occurs, the individual is freed from the bondage of disease and essentially evolves to a higher state of being — resulting in them naturally feeling brighter, happier, more energetic and more aligned with their purpose.

Samantha has been on a well-selected homeopathic remedy for more than a year now, in which time her depression, fatigue and environmental allergies have long since vanished. She is now a healthy, energetic, joyful person who has regained her sense of self. For her, only one word suffices to capture her experience with homeopathy: “Remarkable!”
