Ayurvedic Medicine For Anxiety

 

In everyday life, people suffer from frustrations, hassles, anxiety, demands and work deadlines, so stress becomes a part of our life most of the time. Normal stress or anxiety is not bad for the health unless it causes a hindrance in the daily routine and quality of sleep. Relaxation and adequate sleep remove most of the stress from the mind and prepare the person for next-day activities.

 

When stress causes a hindrance in routine work and a person becomes irritable, anxious and feels restlessness, sleeplessness or experiences other stress and anxiety symptoms, medical attention becomes important.

 

Stress is a state of mental or emotional strain. It disturbs the person's natural physical and psychological balance and causes some psychosomatic health problems in the body.

 

What Causes Stress or Anxiety

 

Mental stress or anxiety can sometimes happen without any triggers or reason but may often be associated with the following causes:

 

  • Constant unmanageable family problems
  • Unhealthy daily routine
  • Over workload
  • Sometimes leading to negative changes in life, such as losing a job, illness or divorce
  • Mental trauma due to losing a loved one or family member etc.

 

Natural Ayurveda Stress and Anxiety Remedy

 

Ayurveda, the science of life, may effectively manage stress and anxiety naturally. This ancient healthcare discipline is an amalgamation of treatments and remedies for over 5000 years.

 

According to Ayurveda, a person leading a healthy, stress-free life has the following main characteristics:

 

  • Healthy eating and sleeping habits
  • Good Memory
  • Self-awareness
  • Enthusiasm
  • Sharp intellectual functioning etc.

  • Anxiousness
  • Seeing only the negative aspects

Natural Anxiety and Stress Management with Ayurveda

 

The Ayurveda pathway is based on balancing mind and body senses of humour or doshas to naturally alleviate anxiety and stress symptoms. In addition to this, Ayurveda also recommends relaxation therapies such as Shirodhara, and Ayurvedic body massage, along with organic Indian herbs and Ayurvedic medicines used traditionally in lowering stress.

 

Traditional Ayurveda Natural Herbal Remedies for Stress and Anxiety

 

The herbs that stabilise the mind have been classified as Medhya Rasayanas in Ayurveda manuscripts. These herbs are used in Ayurveda preparations that serve as nervine tonics. The therapeutic benefits of such Ayurveda medicines and herbs include improvement in memory and concentration, peace of mind, natural nourishment of the brain and alleviation of nervous behavioural disorders. 

 

The following herbs have been used traditionally in Ayurveda to reduce stress and anxiety and restore mental health and well-being:
 

- Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera)

Jatamansi (Nardostachys chinensis)

- Turmeric (Curcuma Longa)

- Brahmi (Bacopa Monnieri)

- Shankhpushpi (Convolvulus pluricaulis)

- Yashtimadhu (Glycyrrhiza Glabra)

- Vacha (Acorus Calamus)

- Mandukaparni (Centella asiatica)

- Guduchi (Tinospora cordifolia)

 

Ayurveda Therapies and Panchkarma Treatments are used traditionally for Stress and Anxiety.

 

Most the Ayurveda doctors use Ayurveda therapies or treatments in cases of stress and anxiety.

 

Nasya or nasal instillation

 

Nasya treatment helps to promote mental clarity and reduce stress. In this treatment method, nasal medication serves as a purifying agent for the head and enables to offer clarity of mind.

 

Shirodhara

 

Shirodhara treatment is a traditional ayurvedic therapy used to relax the mind for thousands of years. It helps to cleanse both the mind and the body. In this treatment method, a concoction of herbal oils, medicated milk and medicated water is poured over the forehead for a duration. It is suggested to assist in relieving stress, tension, anxiety and depression and rejuvenating the mind.

 

How to Reduce Stress and Anxiety with Yoga

 

Meditation is a great way to get rid of stress and anxiety. A person suffering from stress disorders and depression should do at least 30 minutes of meditation twice a day, especially since evening meditation is considered more effective in managing stress and depression. It also helps to relax the mind after finishing daily routine work. Sun salutation is a yoga exercise that can be useful in treating anxiety and depression.

 

The other yoga poses include Child's Pose (Balasana), Bridge Pose (Setu Bandha Sarvangasana), Standing Forward Bend (Uttanasana), Eagle Pose (Garudasana), Corpse Pose (Savasana), Extended Triangle Pose (Utthita Trikonasana), Legs-Up-The-Wall Pose (Viparita Karani), Puppy Pose (Uttana Shishosana), Cat Pose (Marjaryasana) and Dolphin Pose.

 

Managing Stress and Anxiety Naturally

 

  • Do regular exercises. Exercises are an effective natural remedy to combat stress and depression. Regular exercise boosts the level of serotonin and endorphins in the brain, which helps the person to feel good.
  • Eating well is also a crucial part of stress management. A well-balanced diet keeps the energy level up and reduces mood swings.
  • Take adequate sleep and try to sleep at least 6-8 hours a day. Sleep is a natural remedy for combating depression and anxiety. Sleep deprivation can also cause irritability, sadness, moodiness and body fatigue.
  • Make some strong social connections with people and avoid being isolated from other people. Stay in regular contact with family and friends. Try to spend more time with children and friends.
  • Play an active game in which you have an interest. Playing games are also beneficial in reducing stress and treating depression.

  • 3+ years ago just before covid hit, I had sudden intolerance to a string of food predominantly gluten, cow's milk, egg and night shade vegetables. Energy was low and brain was foggy. I consulted and tried other treatments but minimal improvement. I was recommended to Drs Saini and Pooja by a friend who came out of her issues after ayurvedic treatments. Without hesitation, i consulted and started my ayurvedic journey 2+ years ago. It was the best decision I made. During those time, I had 2 sessions of panchakarma treatments. 2+ years later, I can now confidently say that I am able to incorporate gluten and cows milk products into my diet without any issue. My energy is back to normal and the other bonus for me is that unnecessary food cravings have diminished. I am very grateful and appreciated Drs Saini & Pooja's dedication and patient throughout my ayurvedic journey...

  • Simply the best thing I have done for myself and my health. Just knowing that Dr Saini is there is so comforting.


    JJ Aitken

  • I thoroughly recommend Ayurveda Doctor Gurnam Saini! He is fantastic. I was feeling depressed with low moods and low energy, I'd put on weight and was experiencing hair loss. I saw results with my energy and mood after only a few days of treatment and after three months I have been gradually losing weight and my hair is becoming thicker and fuller. His Ayurveda herbs and supplements definitely do the trick, and his dietary recommendations are pretty easy to implement into your lifestyle. If you're feeling like your overall health and well-being could be better I recommend giving this a try.


    David Morris

  • 100% Authentic Ayurveda Clinic.. Highly recommended for genuine ayurcedic treatments..


    Vishnu Datt Sharma- C.E.O

  • My experience with herbal Ayurveda was positive. I found a tremendous amount of healing with this therapy after suffering from bronchitis and arthritic pain for years. The herbal massage was the best thing I ever did. I stopped my medication, the bronchitis healed and my arthritis improved remarkably. I highly recommend it and I look forward to more treatments.


    Dora Tsividis

  • Can't recommend highly enough. After 18 months of working with other health professionals (including doctors, naturopaths, chiropractors and osteopaths), I was finally able to heal my body with simple dietary and lifestyle changes recommended by Dr Saini. Ayurvedic approach tackles not only physical health but also emotional and spiritual, and the herbs and treatments are also tailored to your particular dosha (body type). After working with Dr Saini for a few months I did the Panchkarma cleanse, which I was very skeptical about, but I was amazed that this fixed my gut problems. The treatments during Panchkarma were actually quite amazing - Pooja is a miracle worker and so lovely. Dr Saini's knowledge and client base is very highly regarded in the industry, with other well-known Ayurvedic resorts using this clinic when in Melbourne. Highly recommend.

  • I have been under Dr Sainis treatment for backpain over 2 months.He is an empathetic sensitive and responsible Dr who gave careful directives and absolutely effective treatment to me as a patient.I could speak to him my issues confidently enough and he takes it for face value.I am completely fine now.I thought of my fears of my future and my job which was my sole income.I would love to say that I praise God and highly recommend Dr Saini as an effective practitioner for me and in Ayurveda.Thank you Dr Saini for everything that you have done to help me.


    Manju Jose

  • My four year old picked up a nasty viral cough every six-eight weeks lasting 2+ weeks each time. This has gone on FOR YEARS. Too many sleepless nights to count. She’s now on her third month of Ayurved treatment, and so far she hasn’t picked up so much as a runny nose. She’s still attending the same daycare, same level of exposure. Only now her immune system is strong enough to cope. We can’t thank you enough Dr. Gurnam.


    Ashe Davenport

  • Excellent services. Best Ayurvedic Doctors in Melbourne. So humble and calm. Listens to the clients very well and make a very detailed individualised plan.


    Rekha Gupta

    jyoti gupta

  • Thank you Dr Saini for the remarkable improvement in my health since first seeing you only 3 months ago. With herbal supplements, herbal teas and a single panchakarma treatment I have already experienced the following benefits that western medicine had not been able to assist: * Lower blood pressure permitting a reduction in medication. * Reduced anxiety. * No dizziness or fainting following sudden exercise such as climbing stairs. * Eye floaters gone. * Persistent (2 year) cough almost gone. * Frequent reflux gone. With continued treatment and lifestyle changes I am looking forward to: * normal blood pressure without medication, * weight loss without strict diets, * cough gone!


    Ray Dempsey

  • I cannot recommend highly enough. This has been my first experience with Ayurvedic medicine and the Panchakarma cleanse and I can finally say that after years of striving for better health and wellbeing, I finally understand what is going to work for me moving forward. Having experience a traumatic event and subsequent PTSD 5 years ago, my gut and my body became increasingly compromised. In this time I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, complex regional pain syndrome and various ailments of the gut. I came to see Dr Saini and Pooja at a time that I felt frustrated with my years of work to see some more obvious progress with my healing. Having completed the Panchakarma cleanse, I am feeling fully renewed. Awake. Settled. I no longer struggle to wake each morning and get through each day. My appetite feels steady and all cravings have completely ceased. I now have some tools under my belt to fall back on when I know my digestive system needs a break. This cleanse has been a complete game changer. Thankyou Dr Saini and Pooja for you incredible guidance and support. Liz
