Ayurvedic Treatment for Depression & Anxiety

Depression and anxiety are often observed to co-exist. Too much mental stress is a trigger that can result in mental disturbances leading to depression or anxiety. Stress is actually a normal physical response to events that make you feel threatened. When you sense danger whether it’s real or imagined, the body’s defence kicks into high gear in a rapid, automatic process known as the “fight-or-flight” reaction, or the stress response. However, excessive stress when left unmanaged can result in several illnesses including mental disorders such as depression and anxiety.

How Does Body React When You Are Stressed?

When body perceives a threat, the nervous system responds by releasing a flood of stress hormones, including adrenaline and cortisol. This actually prepares your body to be more alert. However, when stress becomes a regular phenomenon, high levels of cortisol can show several detrimental effects on body. Increased cortisol level is associated with high blood pressure, sugar imbalance, muscle stiffness, and increased heart rate. These physiological effects lead to health issues such as pain, fatigue, low immunity, sleep problems, depression & anxiety, etc.

What Is Ayurveda’s Treatment Approach to Depression and Anxiety?

From the Ayurveda point of view, depression is caused due to Kapha imbalance which vitiates the Vata further vitiating the pitta resulting in interference in the normal functioning of the nervous system leading to depression.
The Ayurvedic therapy for stress or anxiety reduction begins with proper counselling that examines a patients detailed history, diet and lifestyle modification recommendations. Practicing yoga and pranayama along with Ayurveda therapies has proven to be beneficial in reversing or halting the progression of the disease.
