Ayurveda has considered the mental and physical diseases as two separate specialised subjects only in certain contexts. However, no line of demarcation has been drawn between the physical and mental diseases and a flexible psychosomatic approach has been put forward. The Treatment of different psychological illnesses, as described in Ayurveda, reveals that the psychological, spiritual and pharmacological methods have been used side by side to root out the disease.

1. Sattvavajaya Chikitsa

Sattvajaya word means boosting up the satva that is mana (mind) that is the root cause of the disorder. The psychotherapeutic approach to the management has been described under Sattva Vijaya Chikitsa. Aachaya Charaka defines it as a method of restraining or withdrawal of the mind from unwholesome objects (Arthas). It aimed at the control of mind that one should keep himself established in his/her own oneself after knowing the true nature of his/ own soul and attaining the height of spiritualism.

Manaso Jnana, Vijnana, Dhairya, Smrti, Samadhibhih

(Ch. Su. 1/58)

Dhairyatmadi Vijnanam ManodosausadhamParam

According to Aachaya Charak it implies preventing the mind from the desires of unwholesome objects the cultivation of Janan (cognition), Vianan (worldly knowledge), Dhairya (patience), Smrti(recall) and Samadhi (yogic psychotherapy). Samadhi refers to practising yoga and meditation to reduce the waverings of mind ultimately leading to focused and tranquilised mind. All these measures help in developing control over the Manas or mind, which is always unstable.


Ashwasan Chikista refers to the word reassurance. It means listening to the patient and counselling him/her accordingly. It relieves fears, boosts self confidence and promotes hope in a patient. The nature of the disease should be explained to the patients freely and frankly, so that the patient develops insight into the disease . Further he should be educated about the necessity of medication and taking treatment. Education about the disease should also include the reasons for relapse of the disease, so that they could be prevented by adopting appropriate measures.
