Treat Your Bipolar Disorder with Traditional Kerala Ayurveda

How Ayurveda Treats Bipolar Disorder ?

Ayurveda views Bipolar Disorder not as a single entity, but as imbalances within the three doshas (Vata, Pitta, and Kapha) and digestive fire (Agni). These imbalances lead to fluctuations in mood, ranging from manic highs to depressive lows. Treatment focuses on restoring balance and promoting emotional stability.

What Treatments Do We Offer?

Ayurveda doesn’t offer a singular “cure” for Bipolar Disorder, but it provides holistic practices that complement conventional medical and therapeutic care to support individuals with this condition. Here are key strategies Ayurveda employs:

Understanding Doshas and Bipolar Disorder:

Ayurveda views Bipolar Disorder as a manifestation of imbalances in the three doshas: Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. Each imbalance presents with distinct symptoms, and treatment focuses on restoring balance and promoting emotional stability:

  • Excess Vata: This can manifest as hyperactivity, impulsivity, racing thoughts, anxiety, and difficulty sleeping. Vata governs movement and circulation, and its excess creates mental chaos and instability, contributing to manic episodes. Treatment focuses on calming Vata with warm, nourishing diet, calming practices like yoga and meditation, and herbs like Ashwagandha and Brahmi.
  • Excess Pitta: This might present as anger, irritability, aggression, perfectionism, and hypersexuality. Pitta is associated with fire and intensity, leading to emotional volatility and potentially hypomanic episodes. Treatment aims to cool Pitta with cooling fruits and vegetables, soothing practices like pranayama, and herbs like Guduchi and Neem.
  • Excess Kapha: This could manifest as lethargy, low motivation, depression, withdrawal, and lack of interest in activities. Kapha represents structure and heaviness, contributing to depressive episodes and difficulty shifting out of low moods. Treatment focuses on stimulating Kapha with light, easily digestible foods, gentle exercise, and herbs like Triphala and Fenugreek.

Ayurvedic Treatment Strategies:

Important note: These approaches are meant to complement conventional medical and therapeutic care, not replace it. Consult a doctor and mental health professional for proper diagnosis and treatment management.

Diet and Lifestyle:

  • Dosha-balancing foods: Consume foods specific to your unique dosha imbalance.
  • Avoid aggravating foods: Steer clear of foods that worsen your individual doshic imbalance.
  • Balanced and nutritious diet: Ensure adequate intake of essential nutrients for overall health and brain function.
  • Regular sleep schedule: Maintain a consistent sleep schedule to promote circadian rhythm and emotional stability.
  • Gentle exercise: Engage in regular physical activity, as advised by a healthcare professional, to improve mood, reduce stress, and boost energy levels.
  • Stress management: Techniques like yoga, meditation, and pranayama can significantly reduce stress and anxiety, promoting emotional regulation.

Herbal Remedies 

  • Brain-tonic herbs: Brahmi, Shankhapushpi, and Gotu Kola can enhance cognitive function, improve memory, and support emotional balance.
  • Dosha-specific herbs: Specific herbs tailored to your dosha imbalance, like Ashwagandha for Vata, Guduchi for Pitta, and Triphala for Kapha, can further address specific symptoms.
  • Adaptogenic herbs: Ashwagandha and Jatamansi can help manage stress and promote emotional resilience, potentially benefiting individuals with Bipolar Disorder.
