Indian traditional treatment for psychiatric disorders
Author(s): Dr. M Senthil
Abstract: Indian traditional healing treatment for psychiatric disorders can be traced back to thousands of years. Although the modern generations have made their way much ahead in scientific research and other treatment strategies, the significance of the traditional Indian method of treatment does subsist till this day. The experts in the western world are in agreement about the effectiveness of this system. Modern studies in mental health indicate that it is almost impossible to find a man or woman with perfectly healthy mind, some abnormality, some disorder or some deficit is always present. Since there is more knowledge about physiology than about psychology, the physical diseases get easily and quickly detected, than the psychological ones. For this reason it becomes essential to detect and tackle mental diseases from the very initial stage or to adopt a lifestyle which does not allow these psychological problems to come up at all. The Indian traditional treatment for psychiatric illness can help and if properly understood and researched it can spread new hope for suffering humanity. It can lead to moral health and wholesome lifestyle and a unique and novel method for diagnose and cure for psychiatric conditions.
