Beneficial: It is so normal to cry when grieving. It is a healthy and normal part of the process ! it helps detoxify the body and helps you process the grief. I am not sure what excessive crying is for you..Generally if you are crying after a month or two the same as in the first week or so you may be experiencing some depression. The homeoapthic remedy ignatia is wonderful to help with grieving....More...
