Treatment Plan for Hysteria
Hysteria can be of two types: excess and deficient. The excess type is characterized by anxiety, great restlessness, loud outbursts, sobbing, etc., often associated with too much heat and energy trapped in the body. In this case, some of the heat and energy should be drained. The deficient type is associated with general weakness of the adrenal, nervous, hormonal and digestive systems, and should be treated with tonics. If any emotional disorder persists, it is always best to work with a qualified counselor or therapist. Herbal remedies should focus on counteracting stress and improving constitutional deficiencies. The hormone balancing herb black cohosh is often helpful. If the person has too much heat and excess energy (accompanied by restlessness and anxiety, for instance), then some of the excess heat should be drained from the body with the aid of cooling and cleansing herbs for the intestines and liver. Relaxing, antianxiety, and antidepressive herbs, as well as blood, adrenal, and digestive tonics can also be used where appropriate.
