Dr. Sanjay Kumar Tiwari*

.

Abstract

Major depressive disorder (MDD) is a chronic, transient disorder that manifests in disturbances in mood, interests, cognition, and autonomic symptoms. It has a significant impact on the patient's quality of life and impacts the patient's physical, mental, personal, social and spiritual well-being. On comparison with the Ayurvedic counterpart it can be compared with the Kaphaj unmaad condition explained in Samhitas. In the current case we are going to discuss about a female patient aged 28 years presented with initial complaints of depressive mood, worthlessness, loss of interest, low energy, occasional suicidal thoughts and problem with concentration along and she was diagnosed with MDD according to DSM 5 criteria. Virechana karma was done in this subject by snehapan (go ghrita), external snehana, and swedana and then shamana aushadha was used. We employed Manasamitra vatakam, brahmi vati, yashtimadhu churna, ashwagandha churna and anu tail nasya to help with the depressive symptoms. Subject took these medicines for about 2 months. Assesment was done by Hamilton depression rating scale (HDRS). Pretreatment the HDRS was found to be 23 and post treatment it came down to 16. Ayurveda can be used to effectively treat MDD (Kaphaj unmaad) cases, as shown in this presentation.

Keywords: Major depressive disorder (MDD), Depression, Kaphaj unmaad, Kaphonmaad.
