Ayurvedic Anxiety Disorder Treatment

Anxiety Disorder treatment in Ayurveda medicinal science takes a comprehensive view of an individual's physical, emotional and spiritual conditions so its a complete holistic treatment approach and quite successful as well on many aspects. These attributes have an effect on prana vata, a subsidiary of vata dosha which become aggravated with worry, anxiety and depression because vata is the prime culprit here and thus vata carries significance in treatment protocols as well. Prana vata weakens the nervous system and triggers mental imbalance which results in development of all these signs and so patients must not be left alone. It also weakens the neuro-hormonal system and nerve impulses which can raise complications of next level. Ayurvedic treatment of anxiety disorder would involve curbing aggravated prana vata and increasing sattva guna, which envisages a stable and peaceful mind through self-realization and self-control, and appropriate changes in diet and lifestyle so we can say absolutely that for all patients suffering from Anxiety Disorders, ayurveda medicinal science holds very promising results.

Diet & Lifestyle Advice for Patients of Anxiety Disorder

  • - Fresh fruits, fruit juices, vegetables (raw or cooked or boiled), vegetable juices, sprouts, nuts, dry fruits, honey, milk, ghee, fresh butter, and buttermilk are the best to increase sattva and enrich the mind because all these cool vata down and also normalize the dosha cellular physiology in our body so they certainly should be encouraged always for such kinds of patients. Try to cut down, or if possible stop, the use of black tea, coffee, white flour products, chocolates, white sugar products, deep fried foods, hot spices, meat, fish, and eggs because all these cause an increase in the vata dosha and thus harmful for the patients. Such restrictions benefit in anxiety disorders and patients should follow these advice with sincerity for best health benefits.

  • - Breathing exercises are also very vital for patients of anxiety disorder: Mind has a very close relation with breathing as has been well documented in our texts.
