anxiety and panic attacks


An anxiety disease is a mental health problem in which a patient may respond to certain things and situations with fear and dread. A person may also experience physical signs like sweating and increased heart beat. Having an anxiety disease or a panic attack makes a person feel terrified, restless, rapid heart rate with increased perspiration. This is an intense period of fear or feeling down over a short time frame. In anxiety and panic attacks a person’s social, occupational and personal function are significantly impaired.

Ayurvedic aspect for anxiety and panic attacks

As per Ayurvedic view we can correlate this condition with Manas Unmada. Acharya Sushruta mentioned that when a person is intimidated with different things then this will cause a serious mental disturbance to that patient and also the person who is facing repeated failures in his life will also lead to mental disorders. Due to these causes, a person keeps talking unnecessary or nonsense. Sometimes he cries or sometimes he is happy without any reason. These all are the causes and symptoms of Manas unmada.

Types of Anxiety

The different types of anxiety disorders are:

  1. Generalized Anxiety Disorder
  2. In this type, a person experiences intense unrealistic fear without any obvious reason.

  3. Panic Disorder
  4. In this type, a person gets intensely terrified with increased palpitations, chest pain and profuse sweating.

  5. Phobia
  6. This means, extremely afraid of a particular situation. For example, height, closed spaces, being in a crowd, dark, etc.

  7. Social Anxiety Disorder
  8. Having a fear of being negatively judged by people is called social anxiety disorder. As a result of this fear a person is scared of getting social.

  9. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
  10. Past memory of any mental trauma causes this type of anxiety.

  11. Separation Anxiety Disorder
  12. This is a normal anxiety during developmental years of infants and toddlers but most of the children outgrow this anxiety by the age of 3 years.
