There is no health without mental emotional health. According to statistics almost 90% of all illnesses are caused by mental and emotional stress.
Depression is the number one reason for doctor visits in America today and the psychiatric drugs prescribed are second only to painkillers.

A block is an emotion or thought that stuck in our mind and pops up subconsciously to stop us in our daily tracks. Usually represents a failure, a loss, a broken heart… some experiences that we decided to bury, put it behind us, and deal with at a later date. Blocks are the ones that keep us stuck in habits, patterns and behaviours that are not working for us.

Let’s take a classical example where the father was an alcoholic and the little girl grows up and marries an alcoholic, ultimately divorces, only to end up with another alcoholic. She does not look smart, but this has nothing to do with intelligence, and everything to do with patterns and beliefs that stems from experiences.

Behind these patterns and beliefs that corrupt our behaviour making us blame ourselves over and over, reside mental and emotional blocks - internal triggers. They are at the root of mental emotional diseases. Treating and removing these mental emotional blocks is key to successful treatment of depression.

Depression is a mental disease, not emotional. The statement that depression is due to a "chemical imbalance in our brain" (which antidepressants are designed to correct) is not a scientific statement. There is no test of any kind to validate the theory that something is bio-chemically wrong in a depressed patient. Even drug companies state clearly in their websites that the mechanism of action for depression is unknown.

If there is nothing wrong at physical level, than what is it? When it comes to mental emotional levels, we don’t deal with physical level, we deal with highly vibrational entities: mind and emotions. Our mind is not the brain, and our emotions do not spring from heart – otherwise those with mechanical heart transplant will be emotionless. These two high vibrational entities are not tangible. This is the reason why mental and emotional diseases are so hard to treat and cure.

Only energetic medicine like homeopathy can reach and treat these energetic fields. No physical remedy or substance can have a major impact on these fields, unless they are vibrational in nature as well. And these are the homeopathic remedies. Using vibrational remedies is the second key to successful treatment of mental emotional diseases.

Depression treatment is based on the following homeopathic formulas:

• SDI: is balancing the trio: mind – emotions – body
• MEX: balances the mental level
• SUN: dissolve the internal triggers (blocks)
• DNA: deals with the genetic inheritance, if one or both parents had
depression at the time of conception

SDI alone can be also used as a first-aid in emotional emergencies as well. Think about this: when a child has a physical accident we jump with a lot of medication and creams to help, but when there is a fright, or an emotional trauma, we do nothing, just keep repeating “it’s going to be all right”. Emotional traumas are often minimized, yet it can leave deep and lasting scars.
