AYURVEDA AND MENTAL HEALTH
Ayurvedic psychotherapy would play a dual role; first, as a revival of authentic medical culture, the exercise of practices with an assumed primordial dimension, and second as a discovery of authentic subjectivity, the revelation of a self with an assumed interior depth. When we integrate the contemporary art of psychotherapy with the ancient science of ayurveda it becomes a powerful combination that is called psychoveda.(January,2013,Prakash B.Behera,Anweshak Das, and Aniruddh P. Behere) The integration of psycho and veda is motivated by the complete integration of the immense but fairly contemporary view of the mind, emotions and psyche and how this performs in our lives. It helps us to rediscover the critical knowledge and awareness of the natural forces and rhythms that compliment and strengthen our human experience.
