Anxiety and Depression: Cultivating a Chemistry of Joy – Part of the Ayurvedic Lecture Series

October 26, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

REGISTER HERE to Join Dr. Somesh Kaushik for this monthly series on Ayurvedic Medicine. This series is sponsored by the Libraries of Putnam County New York and the Field Library of Peekskill.

In Ayurveda, balancing the three body types – pitta, vata, kapha – results in an outlook on life in which one feels in harmony with the universe. Imbalance allows disharmony to take hold and feelings of depression, anxiety, fear, and despair can result. These feelings and emotions resulting from the imbalance can, in turn, affect the chemistry of the body and create a vicious cycle of physical, mental, and emotional pain. Ayurveda has natural methods to restore the balance of body, mind, and spirit, and stop the painful cycle.

Come and discover:
Which body types are prone to depression, anxiety, anger
The link between toxins, diet, lifestyle, and depression/anxiety
How supplements can work with – or against – your body type
Foods that can affect – and change – your brain chemistry
