Anxiety disorders are a category of psychiatric diagnoses that are related to excessive nervousness, fear, imbalances and worries. Excessive anxiety is seen in a number of mental conditions such as panic disorder, social anxiety disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, (OCD), post-traumatic disorder.
Ayurvedic methods for treatment of the disease
Ayurveda specialists believe that excessive anxiety is due to an imbalance of Vata dosha. Vata is one of the three doshas – or constitutions that support our homeostasis. Vata dosha embodies the energy of the element air and space, the mental wind.
If you ever had experienced inspiration or a sense that you have been carried away by a creative process, then you have felt Vata dosha in its best. But Vata dosha is very fine, just like tis balance, so the problems with it may result in a weakening of our nervous system. When Vata goes out of balance, the excessive energy may cause the so-called citta vritti (literally, monkey mind).
