Mental Health

Ayurveda offers a holistic approach to mental health that integrates the mind, body and soul.
Ayurveda defines mental health as a state of mental, intellectual and spiritual well-being. Its focus is on prevention through correct diet, exercise, meditation and cultivation of the right attitude. It offers a complex array of therapeutic techniques and natural medicines to restore balance and harmony.

The accumulation of toxins in the body is termed Ama. Psychologically, Ama arises from holding on to negative emotions and undigested experiences. The guiding principle of Ayurveda is that the mind exerts the deepest influence on the body and freedom from sickness depends upon contacting our own awareness, bringing it into balance and extending that balance to the body.

Ayurveda classifies herbs with a stabilizing effect on the mind as ‘Medhya Rasayanas’. These herbs promote the intellect and nourish the neurological tissues. They are nervine tonics. Ayurveda favours the use of combinations of herbs that meet the specific needs of each patient. The Medhya Rasayanas enhance biological nourishment of the brain, producing tranquillity of mind, concentration and improved memory.

Though Ayurveda is very effective in most of mental illnesses this section deals with the condition – Depression
