Dietary treatments for depression
For people with depression a heavy food is not advised.the person must not eat to the full capacity. Hot,spicy and pungent tastes must be avoided as these will aggravate the senses further. Fluids and fresh vegetables (in salads) must become an important part of every meal. The person can have cool sherbets like rose sherbet in the middle of the day,especially in the afternoons and when the evening is beginning. Tea and coffee may be taken occasionally to stimulate the brain.
Most people with depression lose their appetite and desire to eat.for such people,food must not be forced,or it could lead to vomiting. When such a disinterest in food occurs, fruits can be consumed.a diet rich in fruits is beneficial in the treatment of depression.

Ayurvedic treatment for depression:
Even in ayurveda, a psychological counseling between the physician and the patient is undertaken. This helps the physician to understand the root cause of the depression. Then they can take the formulated steps to cure the problem.
1.Such counseling is done to increase the sattva of the mind.
Slowly allowing a stream of water to fall in the center of the forehead enables the mind to remove its negativistic thoughts and focus more on a positive outlook. This therapy is known as shirodhara and it is becoming very popular in the western world also. An alternative therapy is shirobasti. The oil massage therapy called as abhyanga is also very useful.
Ayurverdic professionals also advocate the use of yoga in keep the mind restful. Praanayama and yoga must become an important part of a person’s daily routine. This helps to concentrate the mind on positive thoughts and depression will never occur. Yogic asanas that are beneficial to people with depression are bhujangasana, halasana, paschimottasana, sarvangasana, shalabhasana, shavasana and vakrasana. In addition, pranayamas like bhastrika and kapalbhati are very strongly advised.

2.Improve the regimen of your day.begin with yoga in the morning and then listen to good soothing music. Gor some people, visiting their religious places of worship also helps to come out of depression.
3.Focus your mind in other activities and hobbies in order to keep the thoughts causing depression away.
4.You can try eating an apple with milk and honey. This helps to improve the mood.
5.Simple lemon juice (the extract of one lemon in a glass of water, sweetened with sugar) is also good. It releases stress-removing hormones and brings the mind at ease

    1. Dear friend. Donot worry. Just need to share your problems. The best way i feel is that you should visit a nearby ayurvedic doctor and put your problem before him/her frankly and ask for a proper treatment. According to you description there is a disorder of vata effecting emotions too. So need not to worry. everything could be ok. u can further approach me for any guidence and support.


  16. Aadarniya sriman ji,
    I came across you website when, looking at the way you helped people, made me to share my problem with you in a hope as I never tried any ayurvedic treatment.

    I am a 25 year male, suffering from OCD(obsessive compulsive disorder)
    Since 3 years and my mother suffering from Schizophrenia.
    I was taking serterline 25 mg only but it make me feel sleepy and
    tiring whole day.

    My problem:-

    I remain tensed & fearing whole day, unnecessarily.

    Always feel low in energy, tired, weak.

    I loses interest in life.

    My hand keeps trembling.

    I feel like my brain is under heavy pressure.

    I do a lot of meditation to overcome it.

    From your unparalleled expertise, i seek help
