Role of Homeopathy in Treating Psychosomatic Disorders: 

Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, the founder of Homeopathy, has described the concept of vital force. The vital force is a dynamic energy that keeps us alive and maintains our organs and systems in a harmony. When we fall ill, there is a derangement of this vital force. Constant worry or stress disturbs this vital force first, after which there is a physical manifestation of the disease in the form of signs and symptoms. Thus, it is the vital force that is affected first.

The role of homeopathic medicines is to help balance this deranged or disturbed vital force, thereby promoting the proper functioning of mind and body and restoring the body to normal health. The homeopathic medicines act on psyche levels and help to cope up with negative emotions. Homeopathic medicines are safe and free from side effects and are not habit-forming, unlike conventional medicines.

If you are not certain whether the torment is physical or psychosomatic then talk to your doctor. Let it out, whatever is bothering you or it’ll kill you! A weak body can carry a strong mind, but a weak mind can’t carry a strong body. Negative feelings can create chaos in your sensory system, yet positive feelings do the opposite. The positive feelings can expand the brain’s capacity to make sound judgments, boost the immune system by concentrating on positive feelings, and make physiological advantages in your body. Cheer up, and don’t forget there’s nothing you can’t handle. Have a calm and happy mind.
