Ayurveda Treatment

Ayurveda emphasizes health as a harmony of mind and body, and it is termed as swastha. Whenever there is an imbalance in the equilibrium it may lead to various diseases. Ayurveda considers generalized anxiety disorders are occurring due to vitiated vata dosha, especially subsidiaries such as prana, vyana and udana vaata. Ayurveda believes that the vitiated doshas evade the brain of the persons whose mind is under rajasik and tamasik influences and block channels of mind and nerve impulses. Because of this, the functioning of mind and intelligence gets affected and leads to various systemic symptoms.
