How Homeopathy can help with: 

PTSD (Post-traumatic Stress Disorder) by: Kristina M. Star, CHom.

Post-traumatic stress disorder signs & symptoms are generally grouped into three types: intrusive memories, avoidance and numbing, and increased anxiety or emotional arousal. They may be very subtle or they may have obvious characteristics.

Symptoms of intrusive memories may include:

Flashbacks, or reliving the traumatic event for minutes or even days at a time
Upsetting dreams about the traumatic event

Symptoms of avoidance and emotional numbing may include:

Trying to avoid thinking or talking about the traumatic event
Feeling emotionally numb
Avoiding activities you once enjoyed
Hopelessness about the future
Memory problems
Trouble concentrating
Difficulty maintaining close relationships

Symptoms of anxiety and increased emotional arousal may include:

Irritability or anger
Overwhelming guilt or shame
Self-destructive behavior, such as drinking too much
Trouble sleeping
Being easily startled or frightened
Hearing or seeing things that aren't there
Ringing in ears, shaking

Post-traumatic stress disorder symptoms can come and go. You may have more post-traumatic stress disorder symptoms when things are stressful in general, or when you run into reminders of what you went through.

History of PTSD

As one can easily imagine, even from such a basic fact as having had wars throughout human history, PTSD has always been there. Below are some highlights of historical development for better understanding of PTSD.

1900 B.C. – Egyptian physicians report hysterical reaction.

VIII Century B.C. – Homer in The Odyssey describes flashbacks and survivor’s guilt.

490 B.C. – Herodotus writes of a soldier going blind after witnessing the death of a comrade next to him.

1597 – Shakespeare vividly describes war sequelae in King Henry IV

1600 – Samuel Pepys describes symptoms in survivors of the great fire of London.

1879 -  Rigler coins term Compensation Neurosis

1880′s  - Pierre Janet studies and treats traumatic stress. He describes “hysterical and dissociative symptoms”, inability to integrate memories, by “phasic nature” of suppression and intrusion.

1899 – Helmut Oppenheim   coins term  Traumatic  Neurosis

It is a sobering thought that at least 20% of those returning from War are likely to suffer from PTSD or major depression. According to the VA, in a 2005 report, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder was the fourth most common service-related disability.


Homeopathic remedies have been shown to have a profound effect on adults and children suffering from PTSD.

It may seem too easy to believe. Yet homeopathy can be remarkably effective, and rapid, for people suffering such trauma as I have witnessed and experienced in the past decade.  

The health history of the client is taken to include all aspects of the main complaints.  This very individualized form of information will help point me in the direction for the remedy choices.

The client will take daily remedies and continue with follow ups to address the healing process.  We will focus on “clearing” away past side effects of medications and shock as well as address the physical and mental ailments.

The remedies will aide in healing and promoting mental health by strengthening the body to heal itself.  Another exceptional thing about Homeopathy is that people on multiple medications can safely take Homeopathic medicines.  Homeopathic drugs are non-habit forming and have no addictive characteristics.  Homeopathic remedies work towards stabilizing your overall health by strengthening the body itself.

Kristina M. Star, CHom. is a Certified Homeopathic Practitioner, educator and author whose mission is to build bridges between conventional medicine & holistic healing.  For more than 13 years she has worked with hundreds of clients around the globe.   Her practice is based by phone consultations anywhere in the world.

"Homeopathy is wholly capable of satisfying the therapeutic demands of this age better than any other system or school of medicine."

Dr. Charles Menninger M.D.
Founder Menninger Clinic


“Homeopathy cures a larger percentage of cases than any other method of treatment, and is beyond all doubt safer, more economical, and the most complete medical science."

Mahatma Gandhi


“effective natural remedies that have no side effects"

Dr. Robert Mendelsohn, M.D.
Professor U. of Illinois Medical School and best-selling author


“The introduction of homeopathy forced the old school doctor to stir around and learn something of a rational nature about his business. You may honestly feel grateful that homeopathy survived the attempts of allopaths (the orthodox physicians) to destroy it.

Mark Twain


Some interesting facts:

The British Royal Family has used and endorsed homeopathy for three generations.
Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother, is the Royal Patron of the British Homeopathic Association. Her daughter, Queen Elizabeth II, is said to never travel without her personal homeopathic first-aid kit by her side. Her son, Prince Charles also uses the medicine. In addition to the royal family there are many other well known people who have used homeopathy. Three American presidents, James Garfield, Chester A. Arthur and Warren Harding, John D. Rockfeller (who lived 99 years), Henry W. Longfellow, Washington Irving, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Mahatma Gandhi, Mark Twain, Samuel Morse, Sir Yehudi Mehuhin, Johann Wolfgang Goethe, Mother Teresa, O. J. Simpson, Angela Lansbury, Tina Turner, just to name a few. A number of popes have also used the medicine successfully, including Pius X and the current pope, John Paul II.


Kristina Star is a proud supporter of Veterans Trek:  Two men making a positive influence by walking for awareness to heal from PTSD.  It is my pleasure to be both their personal Homeopath and part of the healing process.  They want to make a "shift" into more natural ways of healing.  Along with Homeopathy, Nature & Meditation they are creating a new model for the future.Learn more about Homeopathy & PTSD

"Veterans Trek is an effort between two Operation Iraqi Freedom Veterans, Tom and Anthony, to walk from Milwaukee to Los Angeles.

We are doing this in an effort to do a few things. First, we want to raise money and awareness for Dryhootch. Our goal is to raise 100,000 dollars for them in the build up to and during our journey. Second, we want to raise awareness of Veteran issues here in America. Yes, we all know we have been involved in wars. Yes, we all know we have Veterans in this country. Yes, we all know some Veterans are struggling today. Ask yourself, ask friends, ask coworkers what some of those issues are and then guess how many Veterans are influenced by the issues. Most people have no idea because most never serve, but we all benefit from the service of military members and Veterans provide. It’s time we start paying attention. It’s past the time we need to begin to act. Last, we want to do something that is atypical, intriguing, fun (hopefully), and for a good cause."  Tom Voss & Anthony Anderson
