    Ayurvedic Specific Condition Review: Affective Mood Disorder

    Of the hundreds of people who attend my Ayurvedic clinic in Colorado each year complaining of chronic illness, at least half mention recurrent or longstanding depression as a major symptom. Even of those who do not complain of depression, Ayurvedic pulse diagnosis frequently reveals a vitiated sadhak pitta (the fiery humor of the brain and heart), indicating that low-grade depression is present. Amongst theses depressed patients, some are suffering from an affective mood disorder, whilst others have a physical imbalance such as hypothyroidism, giving rise to the symptoms of depression.

    Rejuvenating Vata

    Rejuvenation of vata is important for those with vata prakriti, vata imbalances, during the vata season, and during the vata stage of life. Those who live in jangala desha, the vata-predominant regions of the world—arid, with less vegetation, and much high wind, also need vata rasayana. Discover how you can rejuvenate vata through the Ayurvedic wisdom of Alakananda Ma.
