A study in Australia has found ayurvesic herbal remedies can help people manage their moods, reduce stress and boost their energy levels.
Key points:The study found ayural herbal remedies improve people’s moods and energy levelsThe study, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, found ayuresic remedies improve patients’ moods by improving blood flow and energy levelThe study was led by Dr Peter Foskett, of the University of Sydney’s School of Medicine.
He said people often thought they had to have a medication for their mood.
“What we found is that they’re actually not necessarily having to take medication,” he said.
“They’re actually having a combination of what’s in their body and what’s out there in the environment.”
Dr Fosakett said ayurvingic remedies were used in the indigenous culture for health and wellbeing.
“There’s a lot of evidence to suggest that these herbs, the root products, can be used to improve health and mood and to prevent some of the symptoms of depression,” he told the ABC.
Dr Frosakett, who is based at the University’s Centre for Mental Health, has been researching ayurvaping for about a decade.
He has conducted several clinical trials on the efficacy of ayurvinics in patients with depression.
He found patients who took ayurvellas experienced improved mood and energy and reduced stress levels.
“We found that ayurvis is really able to reduce stress in depressed people,” Dr Foskin said.”[It] was very effective at reducing the amount of time that people spend in the negative emotions.”
So in other words, this is really helpful for depression and anxiety.
“The researchers said it was a case of “reverse psychology”.”
People can have these negative feelings and it’s hard to overcome those feelings,” Dr Cusack said.
But he said people who took the herbs could improve their mood, improve energy levels and have less of a negative reaction to medication.”
In fact, in one of the studies, it was the only group that had an improvement,” he added.”
It was just a really interesting finding.
“Ayurveda is a mystical medical practice which has been around for more than 4,000 years.
Dr Cusacks research suggests ayurvaic herbs have many medicinal uses.”
One of the big things in Ayurvedi is that there are so many uses for ayurvas,” he explained.”
Many people think of ayureve, which is a good word for these herbs.
But the word ayurevas is really just a translation for this really complex language.
“Dr Csacks said people could also use the herb to treat certain health conditions, including depression.”
Ayurve can help with depression, for example, because of its ability to increase the brain’s serotonin levels and that helps to lower mood,” he noted.”
This is actually a compound that’s known to work on the dopamine system.
“Dr James Birtles, of Griffith University, said there was evidence the ayurvy herbs could be effective at treating depression and some anxiety.”
People tend to have more of a positive outlook on life, which can be very helpful when it comes to mood and anxiety disorders,” he advised.”
When people have that kind of outlook, it makes it easier for them to engage in more activities.
“The study also looked at the effects of ayursic herbs on the immune system.”
The fact that we were able to find some benefits of these herbs in our patients who were on antidepressant drugs, in the absence of other medications, is really interesting,” Dr Birtle said.
He explained the immune response can be affected by stress.”
Some stressors are associated with increased inflammation and you can actually see that increase in the immune responses to certain kinds of stressors.
“Dr Birt, who studies inflammation and anxiety at Griffith, said ayursus were also found to help people with depression and PTSD.
He advised people who wanted to try ayurvalves to take a long term history and talk to their doctor.”
You need to really take this thing really seriously, really listen to your doctor, really understand what’s going on with your body, how it’s going to respond to all these things that may be causing your depression or anxiety,” he warned.
Dr Burt said people were looking for other ways to use the herbs, such as yoga or meditation.”
A lot of people are really struggling with depression right now and have not been able to do a lot,” he stressed.”
To get out there and do something and feel better, that’s really helpful.
“But it’s really hard to do if you’re depressed, especially if you’ve had a bad reaction to a medication.”
