The mind, in conjunction with a physical body, creates our personality and our sense of self. Mental diseases are health problems that relate to mental processes rather than functioning of brain or spinal cord.
These include: Anxiety disorders, Mood disorders, Schizophrenia, etc. can be cured by ayurvedic medicine. The treatment should be directed at correcting imbalances in doshas that are responsible for causing these diseases.
The methods used by traditional ayurvedic treatments comprise herbs and use of medicated oils as well as light exercise under direct supervision of a trained ayurvedic doctor
The main causes of mental illness include stress, trauma, genetics, drug abuse, and other physical health problems. More than 90% of people with a mental illness have at least one other chronic health condition as well.
If you know someone with a mental illness that’s been caused by any of these factors or have a history of substance abuse or chronic physical illnesses in your family, you are more likely to develop a similar disorder yourself.
Mental illnesses can run in families—for example: if you have an immediate family member (mother, father, brother, sister) who has suffered from bipolar disorder or schizophrenia then you may be more likely to suffer from these disorders yourself.
Mental disease treatment in ayurvedic sense can help you in every aspect of your life. According to ayurvedic teachings, there are three doshas (air, space and fire) which are responsible for all types of diseases including mental diseases.
These Doshas imbalanced with respect to each other give rise to various mental disorders. Each dosha has its own characteristics, physical symptoms and disease process according to which specific medicinal treatments are prescribed that could lead a person towards complete recovery.
