Ayurveda Solutions for Balancing Mental Health: Schizophrenia and Psychosis Management


Schizophrenia is a psychological disorder that usually appears in the early adulthood. The incidence of this disease is also higher in adolescents. This disorder is characterized by delusions, paranoia and auditory, visual or tactile hallucinations, as well as other cognitive difficulties.


Sign and Symptoms of Schizophrenia


Schizophrenia usually strikes the patients between the ages of 16 and 30 years. The symptoms appear earlier in males than in females. In most cases, the disorder develops gradually, though in some cases, it may strike suddenly and progress quickly. The use of natural treatment for schizophrenia prescribed based on the concepts of Ayurveda can helps in the symptoms of  disease. A regular ayurvedic treatment with its remedies can bring about an improvement in the symptoms of this condition and improve the quality of their life.[1]


The common signs and symptoms of schizophrenia can be classified into four categories:


  • Positive symptoms or psychotic symptoms that cause delusions and hallucinations.
  • Negative symptoms, which refer to the elements being taken away from the patients. These symptoms include the absence of facial expressions and the lack of interest or motivation in performing routine activities.
  • Cognitive symptoms that affect the patient’s thought processes. It can cause poor concentration, loss of memory and reduced attention span.
  • Emotional symptoms such as anger, aggressiveness, suspicion, and blunted emotions.


Patients who suffer from delusions display false beliefs that can take varying forms. They can develop a delusion of persecution or grandeur. They often feel that someone is attempting to control them. Some patients think they have exceptional abilities and powers.


Schizophrenia patients who suffer from auditory hallucinations complain of hearing voices, which are absent. They feel someone is whispering in their ears and commanding them to do certain things. 


In such cases, Ayurvedic naturopath can provide specific dietary guidelines. The ayurvedic diet includes the herbs that may help in restoring the normal thought processes and behaviors. 


A regular use of ayurvedic supplements for schizophrenia can also improve the cognitive functions of the brain. This may boost the patient's ability to focus or concentrate, plan ahead, recall things related to their personal relations. [2]

  • I consulted Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic for my teenage son to improve his height. He was 4.11 at 13. I was very worried as we are not tall parents and I thought to do something natural soon before its too late. I took a phone consultation with Dr Saini at Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic. Range of dietary, lifestyle changes were suggested and some Ayurvedic medicine was posted to me. I am very happy to say that with in six months, my son has shown a significant improvement in height. His family and friends have all acknowledged the improvement in height. I highly recommend Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic for natural height improvements.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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. 🙏

  • 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

  • I highly recommend Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic. I saw Dr Gurnam for 6 months because of increased long term insomnia. The holistic approach offered definately was a huge help. I am able to sleep so much better and my general mental health has dramatically improved. Please consider the ancient practice of Ayurvedic Medicine for any aspect of your health. Dr Gurnam really cares and wants to work with you to give you the best possible health and wellbeing outcomes.
