Depression

Depression is a mental health disorder characterised by persistently depressed mood and aversion to activity that can affect a person's thoughts, behavior, feelings, and sense of well-being. A depressed mood is a normal temporary reaction to life events such as loss of a loved one. It is also a symptom of some physical diseases and a side effect of some drugs and medical treatments. Depressed mood is also a symptom of some mood disorders such as major depressive disorder. In ayurveda, depression(mano vaha sroto vikara) is caused due to kapha imbalance which vitiates the vata further vitiating the pitta resulting in interference in the normal functioning of the nervous system leading to depression.

How the Ayurvedic therapies work for Depression?
