Can Yoga and meditation treat personality disorders (borderline)?

I've been diagnosed with borderline personality , i want to raise a healthy daughter, i have been reading up on the description of this personality type since my therapist of seven or so years gave me the name of the dbt class, and it's for this type of person, he never labeled me, i just figured it out..since i'm older, i've worked thru a lot of the stuff and ready to heal, my daughter seems to be the dominant player in the relationship, i am loving, but blow up every month after she's pushed me to the limit..i am going to a 16 week class for this, i am hoping it helps? I don't like meds, already on high dose of Topomax for epilepsy. can't Yoga and meditation help...i cry everyday, i feel like a freak.

Homeopath 's  Response
Hello dear patient,

Dealing with a psychological problem is never easy. But the first step is accepting that you have a problem that needs to be treated. The fact that you realize there is a problem means you are willing to become better and that is half the battle won.

Yoga will help to relax your mind, but it may not make your problem go away completely. I would suggest you to consider taking homeopathic medication. Homeopathy has immense scope in the treatment of Personality Disorders, and since you have been diagnosed well in the beginning, you have a much much higher chance at recovery.

In the mean time, you can begin Yoga and meditation which will help you to ease your mind. Never feel that you are a freak. Many other people are also going through what you are feeling, so don't feel alone.

All the best! Take care!

I am a mother of a 16 year old boy. For a few years (since12 years old) he began engaging in behaviors such as disobeying and ignoring all home rules, staying out late at night, having friends a few years his senior and either waking up late for school or missing school due to illness complaints. He turns from being a very amazing person to this other person. He is highly intelligent except he is barely passing or failing subjects. Everyone sees his potential, yet he has this other side to him. Should I be concerned about dissociative personality disorder?
