The times we live in are overly stressful. From financial stress to emotional stress to stress caused by work deadlines, there is no limit to which it can affect our health. The scientific definition of stress suggests that it is “an adverse reaction to excessive pressures or other demands”. It can cause symptoms such as headaches, heart palpitations, generalized joint and muscle pains, dry mouth, tiredness, loss of appetite for sex or food and poor concentration as well.

Homeopathy can help greatly in combatting a number of symptoms of stress such as chest pain, sweating, tension, diarrhea, breathlessness, feelings of restlessness, anxiety, worries about health and more. These can be treated with Arsenicum album (white arsenic).

Homeopathy can be used to treat a variety of symptoms related to stress, however, the treatment prescribed will vary from one person to another. A deep understanding of the person, habits and lifestyle is essential to treat them well.
