Ayurvedic Treatment For Anxiety

An occasional feeling of sadness is something we all experience from time to time. And it is a perfectly normal response to unsettling life circumstances. But if you find yourself frequently feeling low, moody or weepy for days on end, for no apparent reason, it is time to consider the possibility that you suffer from depression.


Depression and Anxiety are very serious illnesses that affect not just the emotions but also the physical health of people suffering from it. Presently, this debilitating conditions are recognized as the top cause for non-fatal disability among the Australian population and the worst part is that less than half of those affected by it receive the necessary medical care.


 Depression Signs and Symptoms 


People with depression or anxiety suffer from a chronic lack of energy or the will to do something. Often, they lose interest in something they previously enjoyed doing. This situation may be the norm in the face of some trying situations such as the loss of a loved one or suffering a major career or relationship setback; however, if this behavior surfaces for no reason at all and persists for a long time, it is an obvious sign of depression.


Some people with depression withdraw into a shell and cut off contact from their family and friends while others have problems with concentration and managing their emotions, and go from being gloomy to irritable in an unpredictable manner.


What Causes Depression?


In some patients, depression may be a result of an imbalance in the chemicals necessary for the normal brain functions. In others, it may be an abnormal response to extremely stressful conditions that persist for a very long time. Whatever the cause, depression leaves the affected individual feeling empty, worthless, and sad and devoid of any hope of an improvement. In some depressed patients, the dark thoughts may lead to thoughts of suicide, too.


Natural Severe Depression Cure "Ayurvedic Treatment"


Ayurveda is an ancient Indian system of medicine that seeks to address the root cause of health problems. According to this system, the body is made up of three elements or doshas and as long as these remain in a state of balance, the individual is healthy; any imbalance in these elements can lead to health problems of the body as well as the mind.


Ayurveda says that when the kapha element is imbalanced, it causes a change in the proportions of the vata and pitta elements, too and this affects the normal functioning of the nervous system.


There is a sub-element called Sadhaka pitta that is responsible for balanced emotions. When there is a disturbance in the proportion of this element, a person experiences the symptoms of mental ill health, including depression.


According to Ayurveda, mental disturbances are related to the accumulation of toxins (Ama) in the body; this is a result of clinging on to negative emotions and not being able to get rid of them. Such abnormal function in turn generates the feelings of hopelessness that are associated with depression or anxiety.


Ayurveda also believes that a lack of awareness of one’s inner self leads to the condition of depression. Deep-seated pain and hurt and negative emotions from the past that have not been resolved tend to deplete the natural energy of the mind and this leads to the condition of depression.


Therefore, Ayurvedic treatment of depression focuses on remedies that deal with all these aspects, to give an effective result, with almost no side effects as compared to modern medicines.


Natural Herbal Remedies for Depression


Ayurveda approaches the problem of depression from a holistic viewpoint. Some of the remedies used in treatment of depression include:


  • Daily regimen (Dincharya) – this involves setting up a regular routine of waking up with the sun, eliminating the toxins from the body, cleaning of the body and beginning the day with worship. This routine helps to promote purity of the body, mind and emotions and has a deep influence on one’s state of mind. Eating and sleeping on time so as to optimize digestion and rest are also important aspects in Ayurveda for depression treatment in Melbourne.
  • Right diet – selection of the right type of food according to one’s body type is considered a very important aspect for sound physical as well as mental health. Self-indulgence is discouraged and the emphasis is on a healthy diet that helps to maintain the three elements in a state of balance. Depending on your body type, you get a specific prescription of the foods you ought to consume and those you should avoid. Foods such as milk, walnut, coconut, pear, dates, raisins, black pepper, ginger and turmeric are recommended for their ability to create stable emotions and coordination between the functions of the mind.

How to Beat Depression and Anxiety Naturally 


Ayurveda believes in the healing power of meditation for treatment of depression and anxiety. One of the key features of depression is brooding – that is, the tendency to stay focused on unhappy or sad thoughts. Meditation can help depressed persons to stop brooding and move away from the mind’s actions and reactions.


Along with these measures, Ayurveda also emphasizes the need to identify and let go of negative emotions that pose obstacles in the normal brain functions. Being unable to vent out negativity causes it to accumulate and this leads to depression or anxiety. Ayurveda can help you get in touch with your own mental awareness, channelize the energy in the body, balance it and move away from depression towards a positive life.
