Depression is an emotional or psychological state characterised by feelings of extreme sadness, melancholy, anger, sense of loss, trouble concentrating and making decisions and self-destructive negative thoughts. Depression can be broadly classified as minor, such as post-partum or premenstrual, or major when the symptoms are present every daycontinuously for more than 2 weeks.
Ayurveda explains depression as a lowered state of Sattva in the mind. This can happen either as a psychological reaction to sudden change in the flow of life, conflict in family or at work, severe financial loss, loss of a dear one, chemical reaction caused by medicines that affect the endocrine system,excessive alcohol consumption or substance abuse. Ayurvedictreatment works transitioning the mind from negativity (Tamasic state) to positivity (Sattvic state) through herbal medicines, Panchakarma, rasayanas, counselling and meditation.
