Mental Health Disorders and Ayurveda

Mental health disorders are common but are often difficult to diagnose. There are various types of psychological and neurological disorders that can affect people in different ways. Some people may develop high levels of stress while others may develop difficulty in recalling things. Mental disorders can affect the way people think, their mood, the way they learn, and the way they react to situations. Mental disorders can be caused due to a range of factors and it is important to treat them to ensure you are able to live life in a productive way. 


Causes of Psychological and Neurological Disorders 

There are several causes of psychological and neurological disorders and some of the most common causes are as follows.

  • Nutritional deficiencies can lead to various mental disorders. For example, if a pregnant woman doesn’t get sufficient nutrition during her pregnancy, then the child can be born with a lesser number of brain cells.
  • Perinatal asphyxia can lead to problems with the child’s intellect. It is caused due to hypoxia which is a lack of oxygen in the blood. Lack of oxygen may lead to multiple disorders in babies.
  • Congenital factors such as metabolic disorders, chromosome abnormalities, gene abnormalities, and change in chromosome number can cause neurological disorders. The congenital malformation is another cause of psychological and neurological disorders.
  • Immune disorders may cause psychological and neurological disorders. For example, autoimmune encephalitis may lead to emotional problems and abnormal movements. It might take months for the symptoms to show.
  • Injuries to the spinal cord or brain may lead to psychological and neurological disorders. Traumatic brain injuries can be of three types; open wounds, closed head injuries and crushing injuries. Spinal cord injuries can be due to falls or car accidents.
  • Toxins can lead to neurological and psychological disorders. These can be from the environment in the form of chemicals and children may get affected by these toxins. When this happens, children may get affected that leads to neurological disorders.
  • Postnatal infections can be caused due to meningitis and encephalitis. Encephalitis can cause changes in behaviour, epilepsy, speech problems, and problems in memory. Meningitis can lead to problems in memory, learning difficulties, and balance problems.


Psychological and Neurological Disorders - Overview 

Mental health is one of the major components of Ayurveda according to the Ayurvedic texts. While Ayurveda is considered as a complementary stream of medicine, its significance can’t be ignored. In fact, recent studies have shown the effectiveness of Ayurveda treatments on children and adults. Ayurveda does not view mental health or physical health individually. Instead, Ayurveda views them as interrelated to each other. When the mind is not balanced then there is an imbalance in the body and this may lead to illnesses and disorders. Depending on the type of dosha and the severity, different problems may surface. 

Ayurveda classifies the brain, spinal cord and bone marrow as Majja Dhatu for which metabolism is governed by the Majja Agni. A Vata imbalance affects this Agni and causes problems making it variable, Pitta makes it low and Kapha makes it sluggish and finally blocks the impulses or Prana entirely. So, Dosha balance should be restored and metabolic waste avoided to make sure that the tissues of this Dhatu are optimal. Ayurvedic brain tonics directly nourish this tissue and balance the Doshas. 

As Ayurveda takes a holistic approach, there are various aspects that must be considered when mental health is in question. That is, instead of focusing on one aspect, Ayurveda treatment for mental disorders focuses on various aspects. These include exercise, diet, and lifestyle. Ayurveda is not about solving a mental or physical problem. It ensures that the problem is solved and it is prevented from occurring again in the future. Therefore, you can say that Ayurveda takes an approach that is fool-proof because it focuses on the present and the future. This enables solving the problem at the base.

There are some ways to become mentally strong. Hatha yoga is an effective method that can be used since it can be used for improving mental health. Breathing exercises can help improve mental health. Meditation can help improve mental disorders and can help improve its health as well. Establishing a daily routine and having set times to eat, sleep, study, and adopting hobbies is a great first step to ensure mental health balance. There are certain types of exercises that can prove to be beneficial to help heal disorders related to the brain. Depending on the type of imbalance, the proper exercise approach can be found.
