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 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...


    Jessy T

  • I am with Dr Saini from last 4+ years. I reached to him after my cancer surgery four years ago...then I was in distress and looking for right guidance and support. With Dr Sahni help, I was treated for chronic constipation, lack of sleep and energy and emotional eating recovery...which helped me achieve better health. Many thanks to him for the same and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for similar support.


    Vaibhav Singh

  • Highly recommend seeing Pooja for various womens health issues. Pooja offers long term alternative approaches to self managing one's health with the holistic ayurvedic system. Her manner and concern is sincere and she is very conscious of leaving you with the tools you need to take care of yourself beyond her consultations.


    Nikhila Madabhushi

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


    JJ Aitken

  • Dr saini, explains very well..has really helped me overcome all health problems I had been facing. Will definitely recommend and safest solution to any health issues..thank you once again for your time and effort.


    Nakhat Shabbir

  • Dearest Dr Gurnam, thank you many times over for your treatment I feel very balanced and cured. You have been kind, compassionate and very knowledgeable in what you do. I highly recommend Dr Gurnam and his work in Ayurveda.


    F.A.J Bakari

  • I saw Dr Saini in July 2019 for “acid reflux” after suffering of months. I tried different medicines but didn’t work. There was a time I started believing that there was no permanent cure to this disease. Dr Saini is an authentic Ayurvedic doctor. He can do miracles for you. I honestly believe he’s a blessing for the city of Melbourne otherwise it would have been very hard to physically see an Ayurvedic doctor like him. My heart burn got worst with the time & became just unbearable. I couldn’t eat anything or sleep at all. Finally, I found him via google and peoples reviews convinced me to give him a call. He’s an angel & listens everything. He gave me a three month’s plan which I completed happily. But unbelievably my acid reflux reduced 80% within three days & completely gone in five days & it never came back since then. I’m so happy & enjoying my life like I used to. God bless Dr Saini & God bless those who wrote reviews which convinced me to give him a call first time.


    Talented Skull

  • Since September 2018, I have been in and out of hospital with consistent bowel and rectal issues. Three weeks after my last surgery this year, I literally stumbled across Pure Herbal. Dr Saini, (Ayurvedic Doctor) has been an absolute God send. I have worked closely with him since March. I have been extremely commited to the daily herbal regime, detox and treatments provided at Pure Health. At 46, I have never felt better physically, mentally and spiritually. What were constant symptoms, are now a thing of the past. I will continue this cleansing journey and with Dr Saini's expertise, I know my health will continue to improve. 🙏


    Inga Spyrou

  • 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’ve had sinus problems my whole life, sneezing multiple times a day, always had a blocked nose and snoring quite bad. After my treatment with Dr Saini, my breathing is so much better, my nose is now unblocked and snoring has reduced dramatically. My sneezing has also reduced a lot. I recommend his treatments if you have similar issues


    Marie L'eveille

  • Treatment with very effective & refreshing natural therapies.


    JTO Nand Gram

  • Meeting Dr, Saini has been a blessing here in Melbourne. I've always believed in holistic health and I was looking for a practitioner who could not only treat some deficiencies but bring my health up to speed. Dr, Saini is an esteemed Doctor with years of experience in holistic healing globally. I had been in poor health this year however through Pachkarma and Pure herbal Ayurveda Clinic's treatments, there has been a transformation in my overall health, energy and spirit. Highly recommended if you want to transform your health holistically and want to get out of the rut of medications.
