Depression also called clinical depression is a mood disorder. It causes persistent feeling of sadness, sense of loss and loss of interest in life in general. Causes may include chemical imbalance in the brain or stressful life events such as a loss of a loved one. These persistent feelings can lead to a range of physical and emotional conditions.

The mainstay treatment is talk therapy with a trained psychologist or psychiatrist. And medical treatments that act on the chemical imbalance in the brain are also useful treatments to treat depression. Clinical depression can be effectively treated with homeopathy. And, early treatment prevents the likelihood of serious recurrences.
Ignatia Amara is the key homeopathic remedy in treating depression. While Aurum Metallicum is used to treat when suicidal thoughts are present. Under any circumstances, no homeopathic remedy should be taken without consulting a certified homeopathy.
