Ayurveda and Mental Health
January 27, 2015
Hosted by Ann Holaday
Ayurveda says that the body mind and spirit are not only connected but interconnected and an imbalance in one will cause a disturbance in the other. The five elements are in subtle forms which affect the mind. The mind has qualities of purity, action and inertia, described as the GUNAS. The Vedas have a comprehensive view of the functions of the mind which when understood allows us to control the mind which is described as the most difficult thing to do, if we don't it will control us. Diet and Lifestyle are just as important to mental health as they are to physical health. Sleep and proper digestion of thoughts and experiences are vital to maintain a balanced mind and if you don't use it, you lose it. Every problem is the effect of a cause and if we have the power to create a problem so do we have the power to correct it. Videos and blogs on mental health at the web-site www.ataytv.com
