Who might find this section useful
Therapists, practitioners, carers: - Those practising as a therapist, such as psychotherapist or healer treating clients that display symptoms that might be described as dissociative disorders or spirit attachment problems may find some of the remedies listed below being useful as an adjunct to their work.
Individuals: If you are suffering some of the problems listed below then you may find some of these remedies helpful.
Homeopathy can be helpful in some cases where a person has issues with attachments or spirit involvement. Ideally it is best to see a homeopath, who, will look at your personal history as well as your current symptoms and will prescribe a remedy based on the totality of that information.
The proper constitutional remedy will enhance and maintain your general health and increase your vitality, thereby decreasing your susceptibility to dis-ease.
Below is short note on specific symptoms found in some of the more commonly indicated remedies. These should be read in context as every remedy has many more symptoms, that are not included here; and a much wider sphere of action than is indicated here. Not all symptoms need to be present for the remedy to be indicated. If, when reading this, a symptom appears to fit, then it is suggested that a more detailed material medica or a qualified homeopath is consulted to check that the fuller picture also fits.
