Depression results from an imbalance of neurotransmitters in the brain.
Symptoms of depression and anxiety are triggered by excessive mental and physical stress, or disruptions of natural biological rhythms. According to Ayurveda, psychological problems start when fundamental imbalances develop in the biological intelligence that controls all bodily processes.
• Vata imbalance contributes to anxiety, fear, mental instability and insomnia
• Pitta imbalance may give rise to anger and irritability
• Kapha imbalance may lead to lethargy and depression
Since depression and anxiety can be influenced by many factors, such as diet, digestion, toxin accumulation, stress, exercise levels and daily routine, Ayurveda treatments balance many physiological functions simultaneously.
Most illness, including depression, begins when toxins accumulate in tissues and disrupt the body’s delicate biochemistry. Ayurveda treatment programs effectively remove toxins and impurities, with no significant side-effects.
