There are many Ayurvedic physicians who just specialize in this form of treatment combining panchakarma, herbs, and other attributes to treat it. Also, herbs like Shankhpushpi, Gorakhmundi, Tagara, Jatamansi, and Gokarn herb can help a great deal to treat mental tension. In Ayurveda, it is highly recommended to take medication under supervision with respect to such disorders. In times of mental tension, some people encounter situations like total confusion and loss of interest in everything which make this disorder very critical and this is the reason why this condition must be treated under proper guidance and supervision. Counseling and exposing the patient to different walks of life so that he/she can draw inspiration and overcome his/her fears is very important. We all are born with a special talent and skill but due to nature of life lot of us end up doing things, we wouldn’t do as first choice. It would be really great if we all could just pursue our hobby and get paid for it. But it doesn’t happen.

Ayurveda is the Indian traditional form of medicine and treatment. It is not only a system to cure diseases but the system teaches us how to achieve ‘Perfect Health’ for diseased conditions and how to lead our life, both physical and mental, to attain the bliss of real life. Ayurveda has a separate branch called ‘Rasayana chikitsa’ or ‘Rejuvenation therapy’ to maintain youth and vitality to recover lost health in diseased conditions.
