Homeopathy for psychiatric patients-for and against.

[Homeopathy for psychiatric patients-for and against]. Nervenarzt. 2018 Jun 01;: Authors: Hock N, Juckel G 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 up with respect to the pros and cons. It is clear that homoeopathic remedies can only be used as an add-on and not alone. These remedies belong in the hands of physicians experienced in homeopathic and psychiatric psychopharmacology. It would be advisable to at least try out homeopathy for the well-being of the patient not only in the case of very mild disorders but also in severe chronic cases, since due to the generally good tolerability, no avoidable disadvantage should result.

Take some time to examine why you feel so disillusioned. Were you harshly criticized as a child and were subsequently reluctant to trust your own feelings or beliefs? Were you confused by the disconnect between what your parents taught/demanded and what you actually believe...

CONCLUSION AND SCIENTIFIC SIGNIFICANCE: OUD carries a shockingly high lethality in Veterans requiring inpatient admission for opioid withdrawal, particularly when there are untreated comorbid psychiatric conditions. RR and MAT are correlated to lower all-cause mortality in this population and should be highly utilized. Given the extremely high mortality, intensive system-wide interventions are needed for the care of Veterans with OUD. On the basis of the reduced predicted mortality with RR and MAT, further research into novel MATs as well as refining RR programs should be a major focus. (Am J Addict 2019:1-6). PMID: 3...

AbstractResearch suggests drinking motives and drinking context mediate the relation between social anxiety and alcohol problems. Study 1 examined coping with anxiety motives (CAM) and coping with depression motives (CDM) as distinct mediators in a self-report cross-sectional study of 263 undergraduate drinkers. CDM mediated the relation between social avoidance and alcohol problems (indirect effect  = 0.07). Study 2 included drinking contexts and motives as mediators in a single model and included an additional coping with social anxiety drinking motive (CSAM) mediator in a self-report cross-sectional study ...

Over fifty percent of people diagnosed with a severe mental illness, such as schizophrenia or bipolar disorder, will meet criteria for a substance use disorder in their lifetime. This dual disorder often starts during youth and leads to significant societal costs, including lower employability rates, more hospitalizations, and higher risk of homelessness and of suicide attempts when compared to those with a serious mental illness without substance misuse. Moreover, many individuals presenting with comorbid disorders also present with other psychological difficulties as well, such as personality disorders or anxiety and dep...
