Schizophrenia

Homeopathy for Schizophrenia

Schizophrenia, also sometimes called split personality disorder, is one of the psychotic mental disorder and is characterized by symptoms of thought, behavior, and social problems.

Schizophrenia seems to result from a breakdown in the mental process by which we differentiate our inner self from the outside world. To a normal person, thinking, speaking and hearing are quite different subjective experiences, but in schizophrenia, this differentiation becomes blurred.

Prevalence of Schizophrenia:

It is a chronic, severe, debilitating mental illness that affects about 1% of the population, corresponding to more than 2 million people in the United States alone.

It affects men about one and a half times more commonly than women.

Symptoms Schizophrenia:

  • Disturbance in thinking: The thought problems associated with schizophrenia are described as irrelevant in that the person's thinking is completely out of touch with reality at times. The patient experience his thoughts being controlled by an external force.
  • Disturbance of verbal behavior: The patient gives new meaning to words or coins new words, repeating words used in an interview question, senseless repetition of words or phrases, and linking of words without meaning.
  • Disturbance of motor behavior: The individual who is schizophrenic has the following complaints, which are usually observed by relatives and by himself, for example, stereotyped behavior, destructive behavior, criminal behavior, withdrawal behavior, and excessive daydreaming.
  • Disturbance of perception: The sufferer may hear voices or see people in no way present or feel like bugs are crawling on their skin when there are none.
  • Disturbance of emotions: The patient has diminished intensity of emotional experience, inability to experience or imagine pleasant emotions, loss of empathy, and simultaneous experiencing of two opposite types of feelings.

Causes of Schizophrenia :

There is more than one reason why patients develop schizophrenia. Researchers and scientists are trying to learn more about biological, psychological, and social factors which influence the development of schizophrenia. The following are all believed to play a role in the occurrence of schizophrenia.

  • Genetics and hereditary.
  • Personality type.
  • Social factors.
  • Difficult circumstances like early loss of a parent, parental poverty, bullying, witnessing parental violence, emotional, sexual or physical abuse, physical or emotional neglect, etc.

  • It is based on a deeper understanding of the patient's mindset, stress coping system, and genetic tendency.
  • It is free from side effects.
  • It is not habit-forming.
