When the only ones who are happy are other people.

“I’m not enjoying life anymore.” “I feel only emptiness around me.” “Sometimes I just sit there feeling listless and unconcerned.”

This or a similar experience is what people report of their everyday life when suffering from depression.

One feels dull and unable to do anything. There is a great lack of confidence. And when the smallest steps become difficult, the big goals fade more and more into the distance. Physiological impacts, such as sleeping disorders, constipation or fluctuations in weight, can reinforce psychological suffering.

It doesn’t matter whether the triggers are based on physiological fatigue, a thyroid disturbance or so-called endogenic depression.

What is the Vedic medicine point of view on depression?

According to the Maharishi Ayurveda approach, depression starts with the loss of natural balance.

Metabolic residues or toxins (in Ayurveda called “Ama”) develop continuously due to improper lifestyle. These accumulate in tissues and organs and block the flow of energy in the physiology. They can create fatigue and heaviness. Stress and a strained nervous system will do the rest, as well as today’s improper nutrition that is missing vital life-giving substances.

In Ayurveda every patient is different and so each person’s depression varies. The Ayurvedic approach at our Centre is holistic.

What is the significance of that?

Vedic medicine offers different methods of treatment. After an in-depth medical diagnosis at our Centre, a comprehensive treatment plan is individually tailored for each patient with depression.

An increasing number of patients experience that conventional therapies alone no longer suffice.

They recognize that healing must take place on all levels. In the case of depression, for example, an emphasis on elimination of toxins as well as balancing of the nervous system combined with nourishment of mind and body through life-giving substances in daily nutrition can be recommended. Helpful yoga, breathing and meditation exercises, as well as specific herbal mixtures tailored according to your needs, support a health-conscious lifestyle. In this way, your natural self-healing abilities can re-establish a life filled with energy and vitality.
