How to cure increased anxiety with the help of Ayurveda

Even for medical practitioners it is sometimes difficult to make the difference between the regular daily anxieties, the manifestations of excessive anxiety and the various mental states that are associated with these conditions. In fact, anxiety is absolutely normal and often is even a healthy emotion. However, when we notice that we experience excessive levels of anxiety regularlywe should be careful because this may turn into a problem.

Statistically, anxiety and the anxiety disorder are more common in women than in men. However, statistics show that everyone can fall into this state. Excessive anxiety can occur both due to genetics and as a result of the environment.

What is the nature of anxiety disorders?

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).
