Abstract

AN INSIGHT INTO THE CONCEPT AND MANAGEMENT OF VISHADA THROUGH AYURVEDIC FUNDAMENTALS: A REVIEW

*Dr. Neelam Jakhar, Dr. Sujata Rajan and Dr. Naina Joshi

Abstract

Background: Ayurveda follows a holistic approach for the healthy and long life. The disturbances in sharira (body) and mana (mind) doshas lead to the pathogenesis of a disease. So, Ayurveda gives prime importance to positive mental health along with physical health. Vishada is considered one of the Manasika Rogas and can be correlated with Major Depressive Disorder. It's both a state of emotion (Manasika Bhava) in addition to being a disease (Manasika Vyadhi). This review aims to understand the condition of Vishada better and incorporate Ayurveda principles for its management. Materials and Methods: The data has been derived from various Ayurvedic classical texts, authentic websites, and various research articles in different journals from Pubmed, Medline, Google Scholar etc. Result: The previous researches incorporated in the study showed positive and stained improvement in the management of Depression through Ayurveda integrative protocol. This alleviated kapha, Vata, and components of manodushti and increased sattwabala by restructuring and renetworking mana via modification in chintya, vicharya, uhya, dheya, sankalpa and budhi leading to changes in manasikabhava viz. bhakti, sheela, chesta and achara. This will help in maintenance of mental well-being through balancing the internal milieu (sharrerika and manasika dosha balance) and external milieu (prakriti and purushasamyabhava). Conclusion: There is a broad scope of future studies to be conducted to revalidate the efficacy of ancient Ayurvedic principles through various modern diagnostic techniques and develops new ayurvedic formulation and modified interventional procedures which are cost-effective and patient friendly.

Keywords: Vishada, Manasikavikara, Depression.
