Homeopathy Treatment for grief / sadness

Grief comes as a natural psychological response to loss, such as when a loved one dies. That is why grief is a vital reaction that helps to say goodbye and to process what has been experienced. Everyone experiences grief in an individual way and must give it the necessary space inside for an appropriate amount of time. Repressing one’s losses rather than coping with them through grief could lead to psychological and physical problems.

Likewise, grief when love relationships break up or friendships break up is a necessary response in order to adjust to new situations.

Homeopathic remedies accompany and support you in a gentle way during the process of coping with grief.

Grief in children

Children grieve differently than adults, so their grief can have different faces like

  • Wut
  • aggressiveness
  • Cry
  • Laugh
  • silliness
  • Dont want to believe it
  • Despair

These feelings are typical signs of grieving children and reflect their inner turmoil and insecurity.

As a rule, children process their grief in several phases :

  • defense and denial
  • Emotional outbursts (such as anger and crying)
  • Conspicuous behavior (especially aggressiveness such as kicking or hitting; screaming)

In order for children to be able to process their grief, it is important to teach them that all their feelings are justified and should not be suppressed. Parental requests such as “don’t cry” or “don’t be angry” are out of place here. Because every child (like every adult) deals with their grief differently. Children need to find their own way and be able to express their feelings, whether it’s anger, aggressiveness, or over-the-top silliness.
