Thanks to our modern assessment tools and the insights of ancient healing systems like Ayurveda, we are discovering more and more about the intricate connection between our emotional and physical health. Although we cannot quantify the impact various traumatic events leave on us, it is no surprise that repeated exposure to stressors will leave you emotionally drained and suffering. Life throws stress and unexpected curveballs at all of us, but the key to happiness lies in how we handle the stress. Apart from stress, psychology can also be deeply affected because of genetic heritage. Certain traits, vulnerabilities, and conditions, like schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, etc., have a genetic predisposition. So, our mental health is the total of our external environment and genetic makeup. Ayurveda, the ancient Vedic healing system, has numerous strategies that help you embark on a journey of self-discovery to achieve inner harmony in this chaotic world.


Ayurveda gives equal importance to emotional and physical well-being. The mind and its qualities are well documented in Ayurveda. Just like tridoshas, manas or mind also has trigunas- Sattva (clarity), Rajas (passion), and Tamas (inertia). Imbalances in Rajas and Tamas, unhealthy lifestyles, and stressful experiences bring out emotional disturbances.

Stress and Anxiety- Even though stress is a universal element of ultra-modern human life, we know that excessive stress will harm and invariably affect our health physically, mentally, and emotionally. Too much stress may irritate us on a systemic level. Stress and anxiety can manifest in a variety of ways. Some feel angry, depressed, and lethargic. It may sometimes present as physical symptoms, including aches and pains, gastric ulcers, and weight gain. Adaptogenic Ayurvedic medicine for stress and anxiety-like Ashwagandha, and therapies like Shirodhara can help you relax and react calmly to stress.

Depression- While sadness for a short while can be a normal part of life, depression is a mental health concern that can make an individual feel low for a prolonged period. It influences your feelings, mostly upsetting you for reasons known or unknown to the conscious mind. While the symptoms of depression are emotional, in severe cases, it is bound to affect and worsen overall health. Ayurvedic depression treatment aims to correct the Kapha imbalance, which is often the triggering factor of feeling sad and hopeless during depression. Ayurvedic therapy for depression includes Vamana, Nasyam, etc.

PTSD- Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is a long-term and lasting consequence of a traumatic or terrifying event in which grave physical harm occurred or was threatened. For most people who experience such an event, the after-effects usually fade out with time, but for a person with PTSD, the feelings don’t go away. They might even increase, leading to difficulty in day-to-day activities. Ayurveda embraces a more holistic approach to treating PTSD, focusing on various aspects to ensure a customized plan for individual needs. A diet and lifestyle which calms vata and proper use of therapies and medicine will cause an improved state of mind in PTSD.

Bipolar disorders- Bipolar disorders might cause extreme mood swings from mania to depression. It has a genetic predisposition. It is caused by high Vata imbalance, and nourishing therapies like Abhyanga, Pizchil, Njavarakizhi, etc., can help the mind and body relax. Along with this, yoga and pranayama help improve the sattvic qualities of the mind to regain control.
