Does the idea of going to the mall cause you to shake and break out in sweat?
Does riding the train or an airplane cause panic?
These are all signs of Agoraphobia, which is a major symptom in PTSD.
According to the Mayo Clinic, Agoraphobia is “…a type of anxiety disorder in which you fear and avoid places or situations that might cause you to panic and make you feel trapped, helpless or embarrassed. You fear an actual or anticipated situation, such as using public transportation, being in open or enclosed spaces, standing in line, or being in a crowd.”
In particular, Agoraphobic people feel like there is no exit, no way to escape safely.
If this is a problem for you, you have come to the correct blog post. Homeopathy has your answer.
Clients have given me many examples of the, such as not wanting to go to the State Fair because there are too many people. Another client said that going to his children’s school for conferences or concerts presents a difficult situation to handle as well.
This is a particularly common symptom in law enforcement officers and wartime vets with PTSD. It is notable that they are trained to be aware of their surroundings and look for safe ways out. This is a helpful skill to have when you are in the military or law enforcement. But is it necessary on a day to day basis when they are in civilian life?
Sometimes there is an actual, traumatic, life & death situation where they feel they may need to escape and it becomes imprinted in their memory. The problem arises when the past situation comes to visit unexpectedly, even where there is not a life threatening event occurring. Even when there is no need to escape.
Homeopathy For The Win!
Since the beginning of the Lotus Homeopathy PTSD and Homeopathy Study, many more people have overcome PTSD.
The veteran who didn’t want to go to the State Fair? He was able to bring his family to the great Minnesota Get Together this year without the anxiety he normally felt. Although trained to look for an escape route, he was able to enjoy himself without thinking he was going to have to take action to keep his family safe.
The dad who found parent teacher conferences difficult to attend due to his agoraphobia? This fall, he was able to attend with less stress than previous years.

In homeopathy, there are remedies made from plants, minerals and animals. And in all those categories, there are remedies that cover the desire to escape and a delusion that it is necessary. In the mineral world, those remedies are nitricums. There are several dozen remedies made from nitrogen salts.
