The ABC Homeopathy Forum

Can homoeopathy help me with my chronic general anxiety, generalized social anxiety and accompanying mild depressive mood and other psycho-somatic issues?

Hi, I am 48 y.o. Maharashtrian male. I have been anxious and nervous from my childhood and particularly so in social situations.

Now, with age and maturity, although I have learnt to cope somewhat with these feelings, I am looking to improve my life and feel more relaxed and self-confident and socially comfortable and confident.

Wondering if homeopathy can help with this?


Just now I tried the Remedy Finder and found Lycopodium Clavatum as the best matching remedy. Should I try it? In what way or proportion?

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Homeopathic medicines are prescribed on totality of symptoms. If only one symptom is taken into account success is uncertain.
Those who need lycopodium are generally constipated, suffer from acidity, burning sensation in throat, various liver problems, gallbladder stones, kidney stones, etc.
Problems are aggravated between 4pm to 8pm.
If you have some of these problems you may take lycopodium. Starting potency may be 200. It must not be repeated before 20 days at least.

I forgot to mention that you may take only one dose.
Lycopodium should not be taken after 12 pm, so take in the first half of the day.

Thank you for your response.

If it helps, I can write in more detail about my overall physical and psychological symptoms / issues ( as I see them ) so that you can have a better understanding of my condition / situation / viewpoint?

Thanks again.

After waiting for long I am going ahead and writing some of my prominent symptoms/issues. Hoping you ( telescope ) or someone may be able to help.

I have been a nervous and anxious person by nature from as long as I can remember. I become particularly anxious and self-conscious to be around people, performing anything in front of them, fearing their negative judgement and ciriticism.

This increased as I entered college and I was terrified to go to college, interact with people - even friends - and slowly become confined to my home.

I developed the habit of masturebation which went on to become so excessive that I sometimes masturbated 4-5 times in a day. As if my whole day was centered around that pleasure - as it was one of the very few pleasures left in my socially isolated life.

Also, besides watching pornography, I have been having a tendency to masturbate in front of a female as it made me aroused and excited. As you may guess, this brought negative social consequesces and I attracted exactly what I was afraid of - negative judgement and criticism from people!

With age and maturity my anxiousness and these above mentioned sexual tendencies have lessened though not gone.

Some of the physical ( and mental ) symptoms I have been experiencing for past many years are as follows.

Excessive sweating in social situations.
mild depressive feelings.
Pain in lower back, groin, abdomen.
stiffness, uneasiness in the upper abdomen - solar plexus area.
blackness below eyes.
Lost hair and gone bald gradually in past 20 years.
Stiffness and heaviness in the head.
Slight pain in the right side of head.
Pain in the right shoulder while throwing something.
Pain and stiffness in the right knee while bending it, sitting and then getting up.
frequent urination, more so at night, lower abdomen and bladder area feels fullness and pressure before urination -
Weak flow of urine - dripping urination at the end - stops and flows 2-3 times. (Prostate enlargement problem?).
Experiencing some constipation past few months.
Stool is passed partially. Bowels don't feel like they get emptied well. (Is enlarged prostate obstructing the path?)

These are some symptoms. Will provide more if you ask for any specific ones.

Just wanted to mention that my mother has paranoid schizophrenia.

Hope this helps.

Since my issues are mostly related to my mental condition or psychosomatic, someone with knowledge and experience with psychological problems will be better suited to help me out, I guess.
