  3. 3. What Is Stress?• Modern life is full of hassles, deadlines, frustrations, and demands. For many people, stress is so commonplace that it has become a way of life. Stress isn’t always bad. In small doses, it can help you perform under pressure and motivate you to do your best. But when you’re constantly running in emergency mode, your mind and body pay the price.• If you frequently find yourself feeling frazzled and overwhelmed, it’s time to take action to bring your nervous system back into balance. You can protect yourself by learning how to recognize the signs and symptoms of stress and taking steps to reduce its harmful effects
  4. 4. What Is Stress?• Stress is a normal physical response to events that make you feel threatened or upset your balance in some way. When you sense danger – whether it’s real or imagined – the bodys defenses kick into high gear in a rapid, automatic process known as the “fight-or- flight” reaction, or the stress response.• The stress response is the body’s way of protecting you. When working properly, it helps you stay focused, energetic, and alert. In emergency situations, stress can save your life – giving you extra strength to defend yourself, for example, or spurring you to slam on the brakes to avoid an accident.
  5. 5. What Is Stress?• The stress response also helps you rise to meet challenges. Stress is what keeps you on your toes during a presentation at work, sharpens your concentration when you’re attempting the game- winning free throw, or drives you to study for an exam when youd rather be watching TV.• But beyond a certain point, stress stops being helpful and starts causing major damage to your health, your mood, your productivity, your relationships, and your quality of life.
  6. 6. How do you respond to stress?• It’s important to learn how to recognize when your stress levels are out of control. The most dangerous thing about stress is how easily it can creep up on you. You get used to it. It starts to feels familiar even normal. You don’t notice how much it’s affecting you, even as it takes a heavy toll. The signs and symptoms of stress overload can be almost anything. Stress affects the mind, body, and behavior in many ways, and everyone experiences stress differently.
  7. 7. The Body’s Stress Response• When you perceive a threat, your nervous system responds by releasing a flood of stress hormones, including adrenaline and cortisol. These hormones rouse the body for emergency action.• Your heart pounds faster, muscles tighten, blood pressure rises, breath quickens, and your senses become sharper. These physical changes increase your strength and stamina, speed your reaction time, and enhance your focus – preparing you to either fight or flee from the danger at hand.
  8. 8. Signs and symptoms of stress overload1. Cognitive Symptoms• Memory problems• Inability to concentrate• Poor judgment• Seeing only the negative• Anxious or racing thoughts• Constant worrying
  9. 9. Signs and symptoms of stress overload2. Emotional Symptoms• Moodiness• Irritability or short temper• Agitation, inability to relax• Feeling overwhelmed• Sense of loneliness and isolation• Depression or general unhappiness
  10. 10. Signs and symptoms of stress overload3. Physical Symptoms• Aches and pains• Diarrhea or constipation• Nausea, dizziness• Chest pain, rapid heartbeat• Loss of sex drive• Frequent colds
  11. 11. Signs and symptoms of stress overload4. Behavioral Symptoms• Eating more or less• Sleeping too much or too little• Isolating yourself from others• Procrastinating or neglecting responsibilities• Using alcohol, cigarettes, or drugs to relax• Nervous habits (e.g. nail biting, pacing)
  12. 12. Causes of stress1. Common external causes of stress• Major life changes• Work• Relationship difficulties• Financial problems• Being too busy• Children and family
  13. 13. Causes Of Stress2. Common internal causes of stress• Inability to accept uncertainty• Pessimism• Negative self-talk• Unrealistic expectations• Perfectionism• Lack of assertiveness
  14. 14. Effects of chronic stress• The body doesn’t distinguish between physical and psychological threats. When you’re stressed over a busy schedule, an argument with a friend, a traffic jam, or a mountain of bills, your body reacts just as strongly as if you were facing a life-or-death situation. If you have a lot of responsibilities and worries, your emergency stress response may be “on” most of the time. The more your body’s stress system is activated, the easier it is to trip and the harder it is to shut off.• Long-term exposure to stress can lead to serious health problems. Chronic stress disrupts nearly every system in your body. It can raise blood pressure, suppress the immune system, increase the risk of heart attack and stroke, contribute to infertility, and speed up the aging process. Long-term stress can even rewire the brain, leaving you more vulnerable to anxiety and depression.
  15. 15. Many health problems are caused or exacerbated by stress, including• Pain of any kind• Heart disease• Digestive problems• Sleep problems• Depression• Obesity• Autoimmune diseases• Skin conditions, such as eczema, Psoriasis
  16. 16. Stress Management• What is stress management ?• Treatment of depression by western psychiatry has several shortcomings viewed from the eastern point of view. Most medications for major depression have strong side effects. No effective treatment exists for people who are just feeling temporarily low. There are no ways to prevent depression from the allopathy point of view. About half of the people treated for depression experience a recurrence or relapse.
  17. 17. Stress Management• Western antidepressant medications typically require a minimum of three weeks to take effect. Ayurvedic treatments, though gentler, begin to produce results more quickly, within a few days or even a few hours. The two treatments are compatible. (If you use the herbal treatments prescribed in Ayurveda, make sure that there is no interaction with the antidepressants and check with your doctor before taking any herbs if you are taking prescription medications.) Ayurvedic treatments, if used complementarily, may help you to reduce your antidepressant dosage ultimately. Do this only with the approval of your doctor after reviewing all facts
  18. 18. Stress Management• What type of causes of depression From Ayurvedic Perspective ?• From the standpoint of Ayurveda there are two main causes of depression.An imbalance in the three doshas, Vata, Pitta, and Kapha.• A lack of awareness of ones deeper, inner Self.
  19. 19. Stress Management Ayurvedic Perspective• From the Ayurvedic point of view, most depression is a kapha imbalance that is the culmination of vata and then pitta going out of balance. Initially the brains electrochemistry has an erratic overreaction (vata imbalance), which triggers a loss of enzymatic activity in the metabolism (pitta imbalance). Kapha responds by trying to glue everything down, bringing about heaviness, darkness, and stagnation that the mind-body interprets as the negative message of hopelessness and depression. In other words, because of specific etiological factors, vata from the colon, pitta from the intestine, or kapha from the stomach enters the general circulation and lodges in the nervous system, interferes with normal functioning of the mind and nervous system, and causes depression.
  20. 20. Stress Management Ayurvedic Perspective• Sometimes depression is a pitta disorder. Allergies and the breakdown in metabolic processes they lead to can also disturb brain chemistry. This can cause dramatic mood swings, with depression as one of the consequences. Vata imbalance also can cause depression
  21. 21. Stress Management Ayurvedic Perspective• Ayurvedic Body-Type Treatments for Depression• The treatment is based on the mind-body constitution of the person and which dosha is in imbalance.
  22. 22. Stress Management Ayurvedic Perspective• In contrast, Ayurvedic methods of treating depression are gentle, natural, and effective. They contribute to a long-lasting state of balance that reduce the tendency toward recurrences. It offers a more complete understanding of the nature and causes of depression. Ayurveda offers a more effective treatment of depression without negative side effects and the real possibility of prevention. It promotes higher levels of psychological health. Ayurvedic methods not only increase the balance in the body, they also progressively raise the overall level of inner contentment. This is a natural antidote to depression
  23. 23. Stress Management By Ayurvedic Way• In Ayurvedic Perspective The Stress Management Proceedure divide In 2 Mode,• 1.Life Style Management• 2.Ayurved Panchakarma Proceedures and Medicines.
  24. 24. 1.Life style Management• In sanskrit the daily routine is called as "Dinacharya". It means to merge your daily cycle with the natural cycle of the Sun, Moon, Earth and the other planets in our Solar system. "Dinacharya" is one of the best things that you can do to stay in balance, prevent disease and treat almost any disease.• One way to describe the daily cycle is in terms of the "Doshas", "Vata",the air element:"Pitta", the fire element and "Kapha", the water element. "Vata" is dominant from 2 to 6 in the morning and afternoon. "Kapha" is from 6 to 10 in the morning and evening, and "Pitta" is during mid day and midnight. Keep in touch with these energies during the day and move with them, not against them.
  25. 25. Life Style management• Waking• From 2 to 6 the "Vata" element is dominant. The ideal time to aise is around 4:30 to 5. This is the time when there is the most "Sattva" in the air. It is the most fresh and pure time of the day. Some exceptions to this rule of rising are the very young, the old, parents with small children and people with fevers or diarrhoea.• Realization• Take a moment to see your ture nature. Remember what your are. Fall into that.• Breathe• Take a short stroll outside and soak up the good vibes.
  26. 26. Life Style Manegement• Elimination• As soon as possible empty your colon and bladder. If you wait until later in the morning or during the day you are slowly poisoning yourself and creating an opportunity for chronic conditions to arise.
  27. 27. Life Style Management• Clean The Senses• Wash the eyes with rose water and "Triphala" to purify the sight. Wash your ears and apply a tiny amount of sesame or almond oil in them to purify your hearing. Brush your teeth and scrape your tongue with a tongue cleaner to purify your mouth and sense of taste. Gargle with warm water or herbal tea. Finally do "Jal-neti" and put a little oil in your nose to purify the sinuses and your sense of smell. The traditional "Dinacharya" also recommends that you inhale the smoke of medicinal herbs every morning to purify the mind, head, face, neck and lungs.
  28. 28. Life Style Management• Oil Massage• A major part of aging is the drying out of tissue that results in slower transport of nutrients into the cell and body and toxic wastes out of the body. Oil massage removes this dryness, removes stangated flows and organs, and nurtures your mind and your body. It also makes your skin look great if you use the right oil.
  29. 29. Life Style Managemnet• Exercise• "Vyayama" is the name for physical exercise. This can be anything including "Yoga", walk, tai chi, a swim or whatever. This early morning exercise removes stangation in the body mind, strengthens the digestive fire, reduces fat and gives you an overall feeling of lightness and joy.• Bathing• After exercise bath to remove any excess oil and dirt. Usually warm water baths are suggested, but do not put very warm water o the neck and head, as this will throw you off balance. Bathing increases the digestive fire, especially if the water is a little cold. Put on clean clothing after the bath and apply essential oils as you wish.
  30. 30. Life Style Management• Meditation• For a few minutes to an hour sit down and see who you really are, focus on focus, put your attention on awareness. See and be only conscious.Simply be quiet. Sit in peace for just a little while.• Breakfast• Take a light breakfast.Western science has studied the aging process for sometime and has come up with only one practice that is definitely anti-aging. This is to minimize calories while maximising nutrients.• Lunch (10:30 to 12:30)• This is the main meal of the day so eat a healthy nutritious meal that has moderate calories. After the meal it is good to take a little walk, a couple hundred steps only, to help the food digest.
  31. 31. Life Style Management• Sundown• Sundown is a special time of balance between day and night. This is the time for evening prayers and meditations in many cultures around the world.• Dinner (6:00 to 7:00)• This meal should be lighter than lunch. After dinner take a peaceful walk with family and friends.• Ease• From dinner to bedtime just take it easy. Spend time with family, read, and relax.• Bedtime• Around 10:00 go to sleep so that you can get 6 to 7 hours of sleep before 4:30 am. A good practice is to massage the soles of your feet with calming ol before going to bed. This will calm your system and promote well being.
  32. 32. Ayurveda"Ayu" means life and "Veda" means knowledge from theVedic texts.

  33. 33. AyurvedaAyurveda is an ancient science of life, a traditional and the oldestand most holistic medical system available on the planet today. Itsmajor premise involves the symbiosis of mind, body and spirit.Any imbalance in this synthesis results in physical ailments. Thisancient Indian medicine seeks to reestablish the harmony betweenthe body and its habitat.It was placed in written form over 5,000 years ago in India, it wassaid to be a world medicine dealing with both body and the spirit.Before the advent of writing, the ancient wisdom of this healingsystem was a part of the spiritual tradition of the Vedic Religion. This has been handed down to us by means of ancient venerable scripts as palm leaf books, leather leaves, etc. The oldest works in Ayurveda still available are the Charaka Samhita, Susrutha Samhita and Ashtanga Samgraha.
  34. 34. 2.Panchakarma (Ayurvedic Detoxification)• Panchakarma• Ayurveda emphasizes preventative and healing therapies along with various methods of purification and rejuvenation. Ayurveda is more than a mere healing system, it is a science and art of appropriate living which helps to achieve longevity. It can also guide every individual in the prevention of disease and long term maintenance of health. To achieve this balanced state of body, mind and consciousness, Ayurveda prescribes Panchakarma Therapy for the cleansing of body toxins.
  35. 35. Stress Management By Ayurvedic Way 2.Panchakarma Treatment• What is Panchakarma?• As the name suggests, Pancha in Sanskrit stands for Five and Karma are the therapeutic measures, therefore Panchakarma means five types of therapeutic measures. These are undertaken for the purification of the body and Ayurveda considers it necessary before the start of any other therapy. The logic being that as a cloth needs to be purified or cleaned of impurities and dust before it can be permeated with a new color, similarly the body needs to be purified before it can be permeated with new colors of youthfulness, health and vigor etc. In fact, most of the time, Panchakarma is an end in itself rather than a prelude to other therapeutic measures.
  36. 36. Stress Management By Ayurvedic Way 2.Panchakarma Treatment• The Panchakarma therapy of Ayurveda is comprised of five basic types of advanced treatment for the evacuation of vitiated Dosha (toxic materials) from the body. One can consider this as a body de-tox program. There are so many subtypes of this therapy and different types of herbal massages, fomentations such as steam, external oil treatments, Basti (medicated enemas), Virechana (purgation through herbs), Vamana (emesis through herbs), Nasya (nasal administration of oils) etc. are also incorporated. These practices are extremely helpful in relieving deep seated diseases as well as being beneficial for maintaining and improving physical and mental health.

Stress Management By Ayurvedic Way 2.Panchakarma Treatment• individually to each person according to their specific constitution and specific disorder or needs; the treatment requires close observation and supervision.• Why I shall opt for Panchakarma ?• It is recommended for healthy persons and also as a preventive treatment to keep physically and mentally fit and energetic. It is also given, although not always, at the junction period between two seasons, thus helping a person to prepare their internal environment for the oncoming season
  38. 38. Stress Management By Ayurvedic Way 2.Panchakarma Treatment• Purvakarma: Pre-purification Measures for Panchakarma Before the actual operation of purification begins, there is a need to prepare the body in prescribed methods to encourage the release of toxins. The two procedures are Snehana and Swedana.• Snehana (Abhyangam) is the oil massage. Oil is applied to the entire body with a particular type of massage which helps the toxins to move towards the gastro-intestinal tract. Oil massage also makes the superficial and deep tissues soft and supple, thus helping to remove stress and to nourish the nervous system. Snehana is given daily for three to seven days, as indicated.
  39. 39. Stress Management By Ayurvedic Way 2.Panchakarma Treatment• Swedana(Medicated Steambath) is sudation or sweating and is given every day immediately following the Snehana. An herbal concoction may be added to the steam to further loosen the toxins from the individual. Swedana liquefies the toxins and increases the movement of toxins into the gastro-intestinal tract.
  40. 40. Pradhanakarma: Main Purification measures of Panchakarma• Vamana: Emesis Therapy When there is congestion in the lungs causing repeated attacks of bronchitis, colds, cough or asthma, the Ayurvedic treatment is therapeutic vomiting - Vamana, to eliminate the Kapha whic is causing the excess mucus.
  41. 41. Stress Management By Ayurvedic Way 2.Panchakarma Treatment• Virechana: Purgation Therapy When excess bile, Pitta, is secreted and accumulated in the gall bladder, liver and small intestine, it tends to result in rashes, skin inflammation, acne, chronic attacks of fever, vomiting, nausea and jaundice. Ayurvedic literature suggests in these conditions the administration of therapeutic purgation or a therapeutic laxative
  42. 42. Stress Management By Ayurvedic Way 2.Panchakarma Treatment• Nasya: Nasal Administration The nose is the doorway to the brain and it is also the doorway to consciousness. The nasal administration of medication is called Nasya. An excess of bodily humors accumulated in the sinus, throat, nose or head areas is elimin
  43. 43. Stress Management By Ayurvedic Way 2.Panchakarma Treatment• Basti: Enema Therapy Vatas predominant site is the colon. Ayurvedic Basti involves the introduction into the rectum of herbal concoctions of sesame oil, and certain herbal preparations in a liquid medium. Basti, is the most effective treatment of Vata disorders, although many enemas over a prescribed period of time are usually required. It relieves constipation, distention, chronic fever, cold, sexual disorders, kidney stones, heart pain, backache, sciatica and other pains in the joints. Many other Vata disorders such as arthritis, rheumatism, gout, muscle spasms and headaches may also be treated with Basti
  44. 44. Stress Management By Ayurvedic Way 2.Panchakarma Treatment• . Basti therapy is divided in two main types - Anuvasana Basti - medicated oil enemas• &• Niruha Basti - medicated enema of decoctions and medicated oils.
  45. 45. Ayurvedic Panchakarma(Detoxification)• Why Panchakarma ?• According to Ayurveda, every human being is a unique phenomenon of cosmic consciousness. The three Dosha (humors) determine every individual’s psychosomatic temperament or constitution. Vata (ether plus air), Pitta (fire plus water) and Kapha (water plus earth) are called the Tridosha, meaning the three Dosha. The internal environment is governed by Vata -Pitta -Kapha (V-P-K), which is constantly reacting to the external environment. The wrong diet, habits, lifestyle, incompatible food combinations (e.g. milk and fish, melons and grain, yogurt and meat or cooked honey etc.), seasonal changes, repressed emotions and stress factors can all act either together or separately to change the balance of V-P-K. According to the nature of the cause, Vata, Pitta or Kapha undergo aggravation or derangement that produce Ama (toxins). To stop the further production of Ama, Ayurvedic literature suggests placing the patient on a proper diet together with an appropriate lifestyle, habits and exercise, and administering a proper cleansing program such as Panchakarma.
  46. 46. Ayurvedic Panchakarma• Word of caution• Panchakarma is a very special Ayurveda treatment requiring proper guidance from a highly trained and skillful Ayurveda practitioner. One should consult with an Ayurveda physician, not just someone with a modest amount of training prior to deciding on these cleansing procedures.
