A question for doctors practicing homeopathy. Is there any good treatment for a patient of psychosis already on Olanzapine 7.5 daily? Patient wanted to know if it is possible to stop Olanzapine and switch to homeopathy due to its side effects. Any thoughts on this are appreciated.
Dear doctor, good morning.
you have not mentioned cause for psychosis, There are Primary causes and secondary to other diseases including brain tumors or cysts. Neurological disorders like Dementia - Alzheimer's disease, for example. parkinson's disease and Huntington's disease.
Some drugs like amphetamine, methamphetamine and “bath salts” causes for psychosis.
Datura stramonium is a Homeopathic medicine is best remedy for psychosis.
ANY HOW THERE IS NEED OF DETAILED HISTORY NEED TO PRESCRIBE HOMEOPATHIC MEDICINE.
Yes homeopathy is definitely a good option. Similimum remedy would definitely help to reduce the dose of Olanzapine . I would not ask this patient to completely stop Olanzapine and start homeopathy, instead he can continue both the medicines and gradually reduce the dose..
"Psychosis" is a very broad term and there could be myriad causes and treatments. More information is needed. However, I can broadly recommend a diet free of processed foods, refined sugars, artificial sweeteners, sodas, and alcohol. Much research has been done on the positive effects of CBD for neuropathy, epilepsy, parkinson's, etc. Vitamin B12 and D could be helpful, as well as yoga, walking, stretching.
