Old age depression

Hope to get some homeopathic advise on this:

68 year old male. Depression starting about 1 year ago due to:

- loss of wife
- loss of money due to unsound investments

Current situation:
- not able to sleep well at night
- always having a worry on the mind and worrying about petty things
- physically acting like an aged person eg. walking slowly, feeling pain in the calves
- no interest in life in general
- no interest in food
- no interest in exercising
- just underwent gall bladder removal about 1 month ago and have lost about 30lbs since the operation. However, current weight is more manageable than before (as previously was overweight)
- occasional pains in the chest
- lack of confidence and self esteem

Currently on medication for hypertension (Atenolol &
Invoril), depression & sleep (Remeron, Zopiclone)

Any advise on a homeopathic approach?

Ignatia 10M : Single dose and wait for results.
drprodip last decade
Dear kkhaw.

Remedies which spring to mind would be: Sulphur, Selenium, Conium Mac, and Picric acid.

Select only one remedy at a time which you think best suits your symptoms, and use in a very low potency only.

Take only three doses on one day, and wait for a reaction.

Good luck.

I note that you are just 68 and are talking of old age depression.

You may like to know that I am 77 years old and quite frankly I do not consider myself in the same category as you have done for yourself.

I still drive myself to work daily but work a 6 hour day as against a 9 hour day up to about 4 years ago. I use the free time to engage in my hobby Homeopathy and have time for my regular daily exercise.

I believe that the secret of maintaining my advanced age which you will observe is 9 years senior to you is due to my nightly use of Arnica 30c in the wet dose which I have done for the last 11 years and I can recommend it to you as it has proved itself both to me and to many others to whom I have given it, to be a wonderful help to maintain one's health when one reaches our advanced age at which I am but this does not include you at age 68.

You must also make up your mind that you are not going downhill as you seem to be intent on doing as the more you insist on maintaining that attitude, the more you will suffer dur to your own psychosomatic conditioning of your mind.

My message to you is to WAKE UP and enjoy the rest of your life by turning a new page by following my advice, especially by taking Arnica 30 in the wet dose twice daily in your case for a few months.

Please report your response if you decide to use this remedy.

Kali Phos 6x does wonders. I've seen how effective it is on my mom who's 82. Because of her frailty she became very depressed as she depend on others for everything. Usually a dose of Kali Phos 6x would bring back the smile to her face - literally. When I first tried it I could not believe the result. Try 5 drops, 3 times a day to begin with.

Because it is 6x potency and because kali phos is basically minerals the body need it can be used long term.

Mr Joe can safely be called Mr Arnica....

.Arnica is a good remedy no doubt i have used it myself...gives you good night sleep .but can it remove the calcarial deposits(the rubble that accumulates in the arteries) from the arteries....
or is there any good remedy....

Dear Hisam

Homeopathic crataegus mothertincture 10 drops in a glass distributed over three times a day for several weeks with appropriate gaps can help dissolve calc. deposits in arteries.
