What is Mental Health ?

Share on:   

Mental health is a state of well-being. Mental health is defined as a state of well-being in which every individual realizes his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to her or his community.

Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood.

Over the course of your life, if you experience mental health problems, your thinking, mood, and behavior could be affected. Many factors contribute to mental health problems, including:

  • Surroundings , Environment.
  • Life experiences, such as trauma or abuse
  • Family history of mental health problems.
  • Biological factors, such as genes or brain chemistry.

Common Types Of Mental Diseases:

  1. Mood Disorders ( Such As Depression or Bipolar Disorder).
  2. Anxiety Disorders ( Panic attacks, OCD)
  3. Personality Disorders
  4. Psychotic Disorders ( such as schizophrenia)
  5. Eating Disorders
  6. Trauma related disorders ( such as post traumatic  stress Disorder)

Why Managing our Mental Health During COVID-19 Pandemic Is Important?

Public health emergencies may affect the health, safety, and well-being of both individuals (causing, for example, insecurity, confusion, emotional isolation, and stigma) and communities (owing to economic loss, work and school closures, inadequate resources for medical response, and deficient distribution of necessities). These effects may translate into a range of emotional reactions (such as distress or psychiatric conditions), unhealthy behaviours (such as excessive substance use, bingeing on food, sedentary lifestyle, lack of sleep etc.)

Some groups may be more vulnerable than others to the psychosocial effects of pandemics. In particular, people who contract the disease, those at heightened risk for it (including the elderly, people with compromised immune function, and those living or receiving care in congregate settings), and people with preexisting medical, psychiatric, or substance use problems are at increased risk for adverse psychosocial outcomes.

The Covid-19 pandemic has alarming implications for individual and collective health and emotional and social functioning. Life as we know it may or may not come back!

HOW HOMOEOPATHY HELPS TO MAINTAIN MENTAL HEALTH?

Help Maintain Mental Health

Homeopathy gives great importance to mental health both in the treatment of physical and mental illnesses. The homeopathic understanding of health is intimately connected to its understanding of the mind in general.  The body and mind are dynamically interconnected and that both directly influence each other.

The differentiation feature between homeopathy and other medicines is following the holistic principles. Focusing on the patient instead of the disease, considering a patient as a whole, eliminating the fundamental reasons of the diseases verses omitting symptoms, restoring health to all levels of body and preserving it by enhancing defence mechanism; and the last but not the least, using Natural Remedies which will not put harmful effects on body, obviously, make homeopathy more powerful than the other routine therapies. Therefore, while the patient’s chief complaints are under treatment, other symptoms will be also cured.

Homeopathy is effective in many psychological disorders such as anxiety, depression, PTSD, hysteria, OCD, Autism, sleep disorders, bipolar  Moreover, some studies have shown the homeopathic effectiveness on other psychological abnormalities, such as PTSD, acute stress disorder, and Trauma . Many psychiatric problems can be relieved by homeopathic therapy in clinical approaches. A study results claimed that in many clinical findings homeopathy can cure schizophrenia, Autism, OCD, agoraphobia, suicidal depression, hysteria, sleep disorders, phobias
