Ayurveda Treatment for Depression
By Twinty Karat
Depression is a state of mind clouded with insecure feelings, sadness, stress, anxiety, tension, worries, and low mood. This kind of change in the mood affects the person physically as well. The depression causes the person to lose interest in everything and that further worsens their mental condition. Ayurveda treatment for depression can reduce the tension and worries and can be very beneficial.
It is a fact that depression occurs in women due to hormonal imbalance, pregnancy, and menopause, and as a sign of pre-menstrual syndrome. Other causes can be due to overuse of certain drugs for treating other diseases, unexpected failure in your academic or professional career, family problems, and the loss of dear ones. Other problems such as bad health and money worries can also be the cause of depression as well as many other things.

Don’t be like the people we are taking care of in our business of caring for the elderly. Right now we have three people, all women. All three of them are suffering from depression, as well as other problems. All are taking some really strong medicine (drugs) for depression. That’s bad, but the really sad thing is they will likely be taking such powerful drugs the rest of their lives. It’s rare if they ever get off of them.
Those three are not isolated cases and are not ones who have Alzheimer’s disease. In the dozen years or so we have been in the business of caring for the elderly almost all of those we end up taking care of have depression and all who do take one of the strong drugs available for depression and never get off of them. Try to avoid that scenario if at all possible. Ayurveda treatment for depression may be your solution if you have depression problems.
Try to always be happy and never suppress your feelings. Nature itself is a good mood enhancer. Spend some time with nature instead of always working and tiring your brain, mind, and body.
