There is a video of a young man, Casey Throwaway (possibly not his real name!), doing the rounds on YouTube. Casey posted his first video more than a week ago now, and it’s had over 600,000 views when I saw it, here it is below:
Casey talks about wanting the world to know that anxiety and panic attacks are a real thing, and that just saying “man up” doesn’t work.
There are many associated videos that come up when you watch it in YouTube too. Anxiety is real, and it affects so many different people. Your best friend may very well experience it, but you wouldn’t know, as they can often hide it well from so many people. Take Casey here, he’s in what looks like his bathroom. But, he’s taken the first step to getting some help and more support. He’s decided to document what he’s experiencing to reduce the stigmatism that is associated with anxiety. Great work Casey!
Casey is on a mission to spread the word on anxiety and mental health issues. Take the time to spread the word too. It takes incredible courage to show your weaknesses in our society.
Enjoy his thank you and subscribe to watch his videos.
One of the things I do love about homeopathy, is that it was used a lot in the early years in regards to those patients deemed ‘unhelpable’ in the field of mental health. In the time of homeopathy’s early years, people such as Casey would have been put into an institution and left there, or treated poorly by those around them, as there was no understanding of mental health and that people could be helped.
Within Homeopathy, we use symptoms to evaluate the overall person, and we take those symptoms and place them into ‘rubrics’. The rubric for anxiety is:
It contains at least 690 different remedies. That implies to me there are at least 690 different ways to exhibit anxiety.
Some of those ways include:
Anxiety attacks at a certain time of the day:
- on waking
- in the morning
- in the afternoon
- in the evening
- in the night
Or they can be about health, their family or even about other people
- when alone
- family, about his
- future, about
- health, about
- others, for
- salvation, about
Or they can be about events or situations or emotions
- anticipation, from
- business, about
- conscience, anxiety of
- fear, with
- trifles, about
Or they can be accompanied by physical distress, or from physical discomfort
- beside oneself from anxiety, being
- pains, from
- respiration, with impeded
And these situations, circumstances, emotions, or physcial symptoms are just a part of the anxiety that is felt. There are so many different ways a person can exhibit anxiety, and as we are all individuals, no one drug will suit all people, all of the time. So this is where homeopathy can play a role, supporting the individual for their individual presentation of anxiety, and hopefully allowing the person to move forward with a stronger outlook and less attacks, if not, no attacks of anxiety.
That, to me, is the joy of homeopathy. Being able to support a person into a fuller, more beautiful life, without the stress of wondering when the next anxiety attack will occur. To find out more about anxiety and how homeopathy can be beneficial to you, contact me today.
