Anxiety or Fear
Homeopathic remedies should not be used for every temporary “low” mood. They should be reserved for times when someone is overwhelmed by an event or situation. If the problem does not easily resolve, consult with a homeopathic professional. If you notice any significant changes in the person’s behavior that recurs or persists for any length of time, this may be a sign of an emotional problem and you should consult a medical professional.
