Lunatic (crazy) comes from the Latin ‘lunaticus ‘or ‘moonstruck’. Folklore has us all affected by the moon’s phases, but more recent scientific research has noted that more outdoor criminal activity takes place at the full moon. Moreover, there is a clear relationship between the change in the moon’s gravitational pull and bi-polar patients’ manic-depressive cycles.
Women’s menstrual cycles can also be influenced by the moon’s cycle, and many cultures have associated them with fertility.
In my practice, I am regularly told that ‘my period always starts on the full moon’, a characteristic symptom which I include to narrow down the remedy I shall eventually prescribe.
In other cases, the advent of the full moon affects some so negatively that they dread the monthly depression, paranoia or insomnia.
Homeopathic treatment has greatly helped those suffering from symptoms before or during the full moon.
Homeopathic treatment is holistic and individualised and as such remedies will differ according to a person’s totality of symptoms.
