Sarvah Ayurveda’s perspective of dealing with stress through its holistic treatments can pull you out of it and lead you to a happy life.


In the ancient Ayurvedic scripts, stress is referred to as sahasa, written by Charaka Samhitas, one of the oldest medical texts in the world. The samhitas say that sahasa leads to ojahkasya – a down fall of immunity and our body gets prone to many diseases. Ayurveda believes in avoiding the causative factors of any disease rather than finding solution for that disease. Once stress has homed the brain, it’ll have a network throughout your body. Stress has an effect in blood pressure, heart rate and heightens blood sugar levels.
