Management of Anxiety and Depressive Disorders in Patients ≥ 65 Years of Age by Homeopath General Practitioners versus Conventional General Practitioners, with Overview of the EPI3-LASER Study Results. Homeopathy. 2018 Mar 20;: Authors: Danno K, Duru G, Vetel JM Abstract BACKGROUND:  The increasing use of psychotropic drugs to treat anxiety and depressive disorders (ADDs) is concerning. According to the study, 'Etude Pharmacoépidémiologique de l'Impact de Santé Publique des modes de prise en charge pour 3 groupes de pathologies' (EPI3)-LASER, adult ADD patients who consult a general practitioner prescribing homeopathic medicines (GP-Ho) report less psychotropic drug use and are marginally more likely to experience clinical improvement than those receiving conventional care. We determined whether these observations also apply to patients ≥ 65 years old in the EPI3 cohort. METHODS:  The EPI3-LASER study, conducted in France between March 2007 and July 2008, was a nationwide, observational survey of the three most common reasons for primary care consultation, including ADD, and the impact of the GPs' prescribing preferences: homeopathy (GP-Ho), conventional medicines (GP-CM) or mixed prescriptions (GP-Mx). This sub-analysis included 110 patients ≥ 65 years old with ADD from the EPI3 cohort who consulted either a GP-CM or GP-Ho. Socio-demographic and medical data and details of any medications prescribed were coll...

CONCLUSION:  This selected protocol, derived from a physiopathological knowledge of the symptoms, seems to be well suited to the prevention and treatment of post-chemotherapeutic cerebral inflammation. It is essential to start the homeopathic treatment before the chemotherapy session to anticipate the emergence of the 'chemo-brain' side effects. This proposed prevention protocol must be confirmed and quantified by randomised studies. PMID: 30021236 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract The application of homeopathic treatment quickly becomes a matter of ideological confrontation; however, homeopathy is steadily gaining in sympathy in the population. Although the possible effectiveness and the modes of action are currently not scientifically elucidated and the study situation regarding homeopathic treatment in psychiatry is still manageable, there is a whole series of positive evidence for the effects of homeopathic remedies for mental disorders, such as depression, anxiety disorders and addiction. The most important studies are presented and the most important arguments are weighed...

CONCLUSIONS:  These results suggest that homeopathy can effectively be integrated with allopathic medicine and that the Tuscan experience could provide a useful reference for developing national and European regulations on the use of CM and homeopathy in public healthcare.

Ever since I started an online community for treatment-resistant depression — depression and anxiety that don’t respond to psychotropic medications — I’ve been inundated with mail from desperate people who have tried 30 to 40 different kinds of antidepressants, and feel no relief. I repeatedly hear from family members of folks who have tried everything, and are not getting better. I sense the utter frustration and despair in their words, and it pains me. I, too, felt hopeless after trying countless medication combinations and sitting through years of psychotherapy sessions, only to continue my ...

So much of American medicine focuses on treating the illness, rather than the whole person. Oftentimes, it seems easier to throw medicine at a cough or a cold, without exploring further to make sure the cough isn't a result of a chronic post-nasal drip because of allergy or sinus issues. If you're tired of treating symptoms to make a condition better, rather than treating the condition as part of your whole body, you're not alone. The latest data from the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH) shows 4 of 10 adults and 1 in nine children are using some form of complementary medicine. This is not t...
