Depression, Confusion and Lack of Concentration.


Dr Kirti Says

Thank you for your enquiry.

As per your enquiry you cannot concentrate and you suffer from depression and confusion. You had some medicines prescribed by the doctor for depression but there was no relief.

Depression is described as feeling sad, unhappy, miserable and dejected. At least once or twice in our life most of us experience occasional outbreaks of anxiety or temporary depression.

However clinically you can say a person is suffering from depression if these feelings of sadness, anger, frustration, anxiety interfere with your everyday life for a long period of time.

You can be affected by depression in many ways and it can cause a wide range of symptoms.

Emotionally the symptoms vary from feeling sad, hopeless, loss of interest in things you use to enjoy, feeling very tearful or anxious, low or irritable mood, change is sleep pattern – feeling sleepy/lack of sleep, feeling worthless, lack of interest in sex, there is self-hate and guilt.

Physically there may be a big change in appétit, often with weight gain or loss, feeling constantly weak, tired and lack of energy, constant aches and pains, slow or fast movements and repeated thoughts of death or suicide.

However the severity of the symptoms may vary. When depression is mild you may simply feel low and in severe cases you may feel your life is worthless.

In your case you are depressed, you have difficulty in concentrating and your mind is confused.

According to Ayurveda depression is the suppression of one’s prana or life force energy. 

This life force energy provides the will to live thus when you lack this energy there is a loss of interest in life.

Moreover vitiated dosha in the brain and external factors contribute to depression as well.

As you suffer from confusion and lack of concentration there is major vata Dosha imbalance in you.

Thus our line of treatment would be to use herbs like Gota kola, Shatavari, Ashwagandha etc. 

These herbs help to nourish the central nervous system, promote natural relaxation calmness and clarity, support healthy brain function, support alertness, nurtures mental stamina, strengthen brain function to relieve fatigue and support peaceful state of mind.

Moreover head and full body massage with herbal oils, hot fomentation, Shirodhara (oil dripping therapy) and Shirobasti (retaining herbal oil on the head) are very beneficial to calm the vata Dosha and the Prana vayu.

Please visit the cosmic-joy.com and clarimind.com website to find out more about the herbs and their properties, and how to order them.

Visit the testimonial section as well to see and listen to individuals that have truly benefited from the supplements.

Furthermore Ayurveda recommends regular meditation practice, healthy diet, and regular exercise including yoga.

Reading motivational books, meeting friends, avoiding smoking and drinking, attending programmes, parties etc. to keep yourself occupied, focused and will keep you away from all the causes of depression.
