MANASAVIKARA CIKITSA ( Treatment of mental disorders)  – Ayurvedic treatment for the mitigation of the diseases has always been through holistic approach.  Ayurveda recommends three types of treatment  viz., Daivavyapasraya chikitsa (divine or spiritual therapy), Yuktivyapasraya chikitsa (logical  or the medicinal therapy), and Satwavajaya chikitsa (psycho therapy)  for treating mental illnesses .

Ayurveda produces also significant results as a complementary treatment method to allopathy in disorders such as depression, anxiety and OCD. There have been studies conducted where the dependency on allopathic medicine was reduced with a simultaneous increase in the ayurvedic dosage.  In most of the cases dependency on allopathic medication is  completely eliminated.
