Treating Mental Symptoms with Homeopathic Remedies
Homeopathic treatment for mental illnesses is the gentlest and at the same time the most efficient approach without causing any side effects or addiction to the remedies. As soon as the person feels better, there is no need to continue taking the remedy. There are many remedies that will help with mental illness and a few will be addressed in this article.
One of the famous remedies is Aconitum Napellus, which is indicated when the person is in fear of dying and believes that it will happen now. The person feels fear of going out, being in a crowd, or crossing the street. The person that needs Aconitum believes that any illness he/she might have will be the cause of his/her death.
Arsenicum Album is indicated for people whose mental restlessness is accompanied by physical weakness to move, cannot rest in any place, changes places continually, lies now here and now there.
In Arsenicum Album the person is anxious and fears death but cannot predict the time it will happen. He thinks that it is useless to take medicine, as the condition is incurable and is surely going to cause death; there is the dread of death when alone or when going to bed. In Arsenicum, there is a tendency to drink water frequently but in very small amounts.
With Aurum Metallicum (gold) the person is constantly dwelling on suicide; he/she is profoundly melancholic, feels hateful and quarrelsome, desires to commit suicide, and life is a constant burden. There is an uneasy, hurried, great desire for mental and physical activity; he/she cannot do things fast enough.
The person suffers from grief and disappointed love, from fright, anger, contradictions, mortification, vexation, or reserved displeasure. He/she is oversensitive, and the least contradiction like pain, smell, taste, hearing or touch excites anger.
The person that needs Nux Vomica has a tendency to be malicious, nervous, and at the same time melancholic. He/she will be irritable with a nervous disposition, prone to indigestion, and might develop hemorrhoids as a result of the mental state.
Nux is chiefly successful with persons of a passionate character, of an irritable, impatient temperament whether at work or in social gatherings. A Nux person will show anxiety with irritability and inclination to commit suicide but is afraid to die.

Mental Illness and Nutrition
The nervous system is directly connected to the gut and to the immune system; that is why issues affecting one system will also affect the others. In cases of mental disorders, it is important to support the gut and the immune system as well.
Whole Food Diet
Eating a whole food diet can help you deal with your mental illness. Your diet should include plenty of vegetables, especially those rich in B vitamins (leafy greens, cruciferous vegetables, carrots, sweet potatoes, etc.), fruits (bananas, citrus, avocado, etc.), whole grains, legumes (beans, lentils, peas, chickpeas, etc.), nuts and seeds (sunflower seeds, macadamia nuts, almonds, etc.) and sea vegetables.
If you are not vegetarian, good sources of B12 vitamins are grass-fed beef and lamb, wild-caught cold-water fish (salmon, mackerel, sardines, etc.), chicken and turkey, eggs, yogurt, etc. If you are vegetarian, nutritional yeast is probably the single best source of all B vitamins but you may also need to take a supplement.
At the same time, you should eliminate the consumption of sugars, processed foods, hydrogenated oils, and foods that cause you allergies.
It is also important to supplement with omega 3 fish oil and probiotics. Some adaptogenic herbs, such as ashwagandha, are also very helpful when dealing with issues like anxiety and depression. Vitamin C and magnesium may also be beneficial. There are many other supplements that can help depending on the mental disorder.
Lifestyle changes are usually required in order to reduce stress and anxiety. For example, deep breathing exercises can help reduce anxiety and taking a walk in nature can do wonders to improve your mood and help you relax.
