Depression is a state of unhappiness, sadness, and dejection that can have a detrimental effect on a person's self-esteem, ability to function, and sleep. It's also an invisible illness that cannot be seen or easily diagnosed. At present, depression is treated with psychotherapy or with medication. However, Ayurveda offers a natural alternative for those suffering from depression caused by the imbalance of dhatu (small molecules in the body) through proper diet and lifestyle changes.
Depression is a very serious problem. But it doesn't have to be a problem for you or your loved ones. In Ayurveda, there is a wide range of treatments for depression that help in curing the condition from within. The great thing about Ayurveda is that it's very holistic. It's not just a system of medicines or treatments; rather, it's an entire lifestyle embedded in nature and its surroundings.
Depression is one of the most painful and debilitating diseases. Anxiety, panic attacks, and suicidal thoughts can be symptoms of depression. Depression reduces a person's motivation, energy, memory, and concentration. The patient finds it difficult to sleep, eat and think clearly. He/she may feel sad, and restless and have a lack of interest in doing things that were once pleasurable.
There are going to be times in your life when you experience sadness or depression. This is a natural part of life, but you can take action to help yourself feel better after experiencing a bout of low mood or sadness.
