Causes of Depression according to Ayurveda

According to Ayurveda, the reason for depression can be as follows:

1. An imbalance among the three doshas that are VATA, PITTA and KAPHA.
2. Being unaware of the inner self.

Maximum no of patients of depression are observed to be depressive due to Kapha imbalance which eventually leads to the imbalance of other two elements . Due to imbalance between these basic body elements, feelings of negativity and hopelessness are generated which creates abnormal functioning of the nervous system causing depression.

Moreover, the occurrence of depression cannot be prevented by these means, it just gives temporary relief as and when it occurs.
