Pregnancy is a life-changing experience for women, as they prepare to bring a new life into the world. It is a time of great joy and anticipation, but it can also be a time of stress and anxiety.
Mental health issues are common during pregnancy, and it is essential to take care of your mental health to ensure a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby.
Mental health issues during pregnancy can take many forms, including depression, anxiety, and stress. These issues can be caused by a variety of factors, including hormonal changes, relationship problems, financial stress, and physical discomfort. Whatever the cause, it is important to address mental health issues during pregnancy to ensure the best possible outcome for both the mother and the baby.
According to Shivangi Sagar, Counselling Psychologist and Co-Founder of HopeQure, a platform for counselling and therapy consultations, mood swings are normal during pregnancy but if you feel nervous or down all the time, it could be a sign of something deeper. She says, "Stress over being pregnant, changes in your body during the pregnancy, and everyday worries can take a toll. Depression and anxiety are the two most common and prevalent disorders faced during pregnancy. The prevalence ranges from 8 to 30 per cent all over the world."
"Antenatal depression i.e., depression before the birth of the child is a strong predictor of postnatal depression. Depression is sadness or feeling down or irritable for weeks or months at a time. Someone may have depression before getting pregnant. But it also can start during pregnancy for a number of reasons -- for example, if a woman isn't happy about being pregnant or is dealing with a lot of stress at work or stress at home. Whereas, anxiety is a feeling of worry or fear over things that might happen. If you worry a lot anyway, many things can stress you out during pregnancy. You might worry that you won't be a good parent or that you can't afford to raise a baby," says Shivangi.
"Perinatal and antenatal mental issues have been associated with many poor outcomes, including maternal, child, and family unit challenges. Infants and young children of depressed mothers are more likely to have a difficult temperament, as well as cognitive and emotional delays. Among mothers who have a history of depression and decide to stop taking their antidepressants during the perinatal period, the majority suffer from relapsing symptoms. If depression continues postpartum, there is an increased risk of poor mother-infant attachment, delayed cognitive and linguistic skills in the infant, impaired emotional development, and risk for behavioural problems in later life."
While there is a probability of adverse mental health concerns in mothers during pregnancy, it is of chief importance that these symptoms can be managed.
Here are seven ways Counselling Psychologist Shivangi suggests you protect your mental health while pregnant:
Seek Prenatal Care: Regular prenatal care is critical to identify mental health issues early on and providing support and resources to address them. Prenatal care can also ensure that both the mother and the baby are healthy throughout the pregnancy. Prenatal yoga is a powerful tool for managing depression. It can assist in elevating the mood during pregnancy and provide strength to the body, especially the pelvic floor, hip, and abdominal core muscles. It gives the mother a healthier pregnancy and research has confirmed that a healthy mother is more likely to have or give birth to a healthy baby.
Increase Awareness: It is important to take notice that you are facing mental health issues. It can be helpful to talk to a professional and help you deal with your specific issues.
Practice Positive Self-Talk: Sometimes writing a few positive affirmations and reading them aloud can help in uplifting the mind. It is significant that pregnant women should focus their attention on positive things.
Communicate Openly: Talking about what is causing you stress with your partner, family, friends or a professional can help you understand your stressors and how you can manage them. It will also help your loved ones support you during this period. Having a strong support system during pregnancy can provide valuable emotional support and connection. Joining a support group for pregnant women can also provide a valuable source of support.
Prioritise Self-Care: Taking care of oneself during pregnancy is essential to reduce stress and promote positive mental health. This can include getting enough rest, eating a healthy diet, and engaging in regular physical activity. Taking time for oneself to relax and engage in activities can also help reduce stress.
Breathing Exercises: You can try breathing exercises and help you calm yourself in times of stress and anxiety. You can also try mindfulness and meditation techniques to regulate your emotions.
Seek Professional Help: If you are experiencing severe or persistent mental health issues during pregnancy, it's essential to seek professional help. This can include therapy, medication, or a combination of both. Healthcare providers can help identify the best treatment options for individual needs. (N. Lothungbeni Humtsoe)

Even as the world gets into recovery mode post-pandemic, many people are still grappling with the symptoms of long Covid. According to the WHO, if you have recovered from Covid-19 but some symptoms stay stubborn, such as shortness of breath, brain fog, and fatigue, the condition is known as long Covid. Long Covid symptoms also include palpitations, insomnia, gastric problems such as bloating, acidity, irritable bowel, muscle weakness, and mobility issues.
Any microbe that enters the body causes toxicity, resulting in the imbalance of Doshas or bio-energies of one's body. Our bodies are prone to infectious diseases when we have a weak immune system, and Panchakarma along with other curative Ayurveda treatments helps to strengthen the immune system. In Ayurveda, the Panchakarma procedure is used as a prophylactic to prevent infectious diseases and incidentally can also help to prevent a relapse.
In the case of a Covid patient who has tested negative for the virus, the Vaidyas (doctors) at CGH Earth recommend the Panchakarma procedure to strengthen and fortify the body. However, such procedures cannot be administered soon after recovery, though other Ayurvedic treatments for insomnia, anxiety, stress-related disorders, and immune boosting can be done.
To do the Panchakarma cleansing procedures, it is recommended to allow the body to heal itself -- for up to say two months in order for the energy levels to get back to normal or near normal. This is the same recommendation that Ayurveda would give for a person who has undergone surgery or some serious illness; a gap of two or three months before undergoing the Panchakarma.
Meanwhile, the degree of long Covid symptoms varies from patient to patient and therefore the treatment protocols vary as well. The doctor will need to watch and assess when the patient is ready to undergo only one or multiple karmas which are part of the Panchakarma procedure.
Long Covid patients suffer from respiratory problems and also issues related to the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, cardiac-related conditions, neurological conditions, and brain and kidney issues. Covid also affects the sense organs wherein some people lose their sense of smell, taste, hearing, and vision for an extended period of time. Many, post Covid suffer from insomnia, brain fog, and anxiety.
Although Panchakarma has immense health benefits, it is critical that for post-Covid patients the energy level is checked prior to putting them on any treatments, as they are tiring processes that do initially lower one's energy. Panchakarma procedures include detoxification of the body. This is a necessary stage of treatment as the disease-causing microbes bring a lot of toxins into the body and if they remain in the body, Ayurvedic treatments cannot address the conditions that have manifested internally.
For Kapha-related lung infections, chest pain, and infected pleural cavities the patient is treated with Herbal drug-induced vomiting or Vamana (one of the deep cleansing Panchakarma procedures). Likewise for gastric infection or if the liver or pancreas is affected purgation is advised. Meanwhile, the main procedure for problems related to sensory organs like loss of smell or taste is Nasya i.e.: nasal treatment.
For those affected by arthritis, degenerating muscles, or skin lesions; Vasti or medicated enemas are prescribed. It is to be noted that this is not merely Colon cleansing but the administration of special medicines into the colon and rectum where the medications in them are easily absorbed internally.
Alongside the Panchakarma procedures, secondary treatments or "Upakarmas" are also administered to the patients. "Tharpanam" which is administered for the eyes and "Karnapuranam" for the ears are treatments that Ayurveda prescribes for patients who have long Covid conditions related to these sensory organs. Treatments like "Njavarakizhi" and "Pizhichil" also aid in correcting the Vata, Pitta, and Kapha imbalances and help rejuvenate and rebuild the body from the inside out.
Herbal medications are administered to improve the immune system. In particular, those with respiratory tract issues benefit from these prescribed herbal medicines by improving their lung capacity and removal of excess accumulation of phlegm or fibroids. These medicines are beneficial for those with GI tract issues.
Regularly strengthening the body with herbal preparations after a course of Panchakarma, helps to keep Covid and other infectious diseases at bay. In Ayurveda, the course of medication can last from three to six months and in some cases where the patient is very weak, it is prescribed for a year.

Himalaya Liv 52 syrup is an Ayurvedic syrup made from a combination of various herbs. It is a herbal remedy made from the extracts of Capers, Chicory, Arjuna, and a lot more.

Agni or the digestive power in our body is the central component of health in Ayurveda. A weak digestive fire means the formation of unwanted aama (toxins) in the body resulting in the formation of many diseases, an Agni which is too strong will start digesting your own body resulting in diseases like shosha (extremely low weight and weakness) and dhatu khshaya.
Now the drugs used in this medicine, drugs like Amalki, Chitraka, and guduchi are medicines here that help in bringing saatmaya( or balance to your digestive fire) which helps in samyak paachan of your food resulting in proper nutrition of your body. Bringing this ethereal concept into the practical world means that consumption of these drugs is leading to an improvement in digestion which is happening because these drugs are interacting with the yakrit and bringing completeness to its system, this completion and healing is the cause of improvement of Agni. This improvement of agni obviously helps in various aspects like increasing appetite, increasing digestion, and curing problems like anorexia.

Liv 52 syrup Ingredients
Punarnava (Boerhavia diffusa): Punarnava acts on the digestive fire first and completely fixes it due to its deepan and paachan qualities. Now, the improved digestion doesn’t make aama which inevitably doesn’t poison the body even more.

Haritaki (Terminalia chebula): Haritaki is the hot potency counterpart to Amalki and is going to serve every single function that Amalki is erving in the body along with providing the necessary pitta to re-ignite the digestive system.

Recipe of Kadha
In terms of preparation, it is generally made by boiling herbs and spices like cardamom, dry ginger, turmeric, black pepper, cloves, cinnamon, ajwain (carom seeds), fennel, amla (Indian gooseberry), tulsi (holy basil), licorice, etc.
This liquid is then strained and consumed.
It tastes mildly a stringent with highly soothing flavours, a perfect homemade beverage to cozy upto. It has pungent notes from cardamom and hints of earthy sweetness from cinnamon and fennel. The unmistakable hit of black pepper and dry ginger immediately clears the throat.
There is no single recipe for Kadha. Everyone has their own combination of spices and herbs. That are used, depending on availability. However, generally, all Kadha recipes will include cloves, cinnamon, dry ginger, licorice, and tulsi. While making your own Kadha at home, it is important to understand why you should use certain ingredients and how they will benefit your health.
Turmeric is a well-known spice that contains curcumin. Full of antioxidants, curcumin has high anti-inflammatory properties. Turmeric also helps in fighting the free radicals in the body.
Black pepper is a powerful spice with strong anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. The piperine in black pepper increases the bio-availability (absorption of nutrients by the body) of curcumin and other compounds, making it the magical ingredient in Kadha.
Tulsi (Holy Basil)
Also called Indian Basil, Tulsi is loaded with Vitamins A and C. As a natural adaptogen, tulsi helps the body adapt to stress and anxiety. It has anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal properties that help fight infections internally. Tulsi helps lower blood sugar and cholesterol.
Ginger is packed with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. It helps in relieving nausea and aids digestion. Ginger is also said to help in lowering blood sugar.
Made from the inner bark of cinnamon trees, this sweet spice is a powerhouse of antioxidants that boost immunity by negating the effect of free radicals in the body. It is also thought to be effective in fighting bacterial and fungal infections.
These tiny flower buds have a strong, minty taste. Cloves are loaded with vitamins, and candles have anti-inflammatory and anti-diabetic properties, and they help to improve respiration, stress relief, dental health, and blood circulation.
You can make your own version of Kadha at home using these ingredients in appropriate quantities. While it is recommended to have it daily, you can start building the habit by having 2-3 cups a week.
We all have hectic schedules and little time to spare, making it difficult to take care of our health. On such days, we all look for something more convenient, so if you prefer easy-to-brew teas that are made from 100% high-quality natural ingredients. (Bala Sarda, Founder & CEO, VAHDAM India)

Covid-19 has created mayhem globally. The WHO has termed COVID-19 as a Pandemic, which is an epidemic that spreads across continents.
India is in a better position than most other countries in trying to contain and prevent the spread. India has the rich heritage of Ayurveda and knowingly or unknowingly every Indian has grown up with Ayurveda as a way of life.
Ayurveda is a Vedic medical science that focuses on living a healthy life. The science advocates treating the disease and ensuring no recurrence. Many references are found in Ayurveda’s ancient texts to trace the roots of an epidemic. Mankind has three Doshas that build the human constitution and are also are responsible for a variety of diseases along with various Dushyas.
COVID-19 can be roughly compared to epidemics described in Ayurveda texts, caused by contaminated air, water, land, and a disturbed Rutucharya (Charak Viman 3, Janapadodhwansa also described by Sushruta in Sushrut Samhita, Sutrastahn, 6)
Environmental changes caused by man’s interference with the bio-ecology in which he lives, as well as pollution due to depletion of natural resources, may be the cause for the destruction of communities and could justify the attribution to karma given here as a cause of vitiation.
Another reference that describes the symptoms of COVID-19 is seen in Charakasamhita, Nidan Sthana, Jwara Nidan, Aagantuj Jwara. The disease is caused due to exogenous factors like Bhutaabhishaynga (due to micro-organisms mentioned by Charaka) and Rakshasa ( demons in the form of viruses and bacteria mentioned by Sushruta) and the SARS-CoV-2 Virus, in this case.
The Jwara is due to external reasons and appears independent at first but later shows signs and symptoms of Nija Jwara (endogenous fevers). However, these Aagantuja Jwaras have their etiological factors and treatments.
A comparative table of signs and symptoms of COVID-19 and those mentioned in Sushrut Samhita, Sutrasthan, 6 is given below:
तस्य प्रकृतिरुद्दिष्टा दोषाः शारीरमानसाः|
देहिनं न हि निर्दोषं ज्वरः समुपसेवते||१२|| Charaka Chikitsasthana, Jwara Chikitsa
This sutra states that if the physical and mental state of the body is in equilibrium, Jwara will not arise. Chakrapani Datta has commented on this, by enhancing the point of treatment of Aagantuj Jwara as per Nija Jwara. (Ayurveda Dipika)
Also, one reference must be mentioned here that Chakrapani Datta was born in the 11th Century, and Allopathic Medicine was discovered in the 19th Century, which proves that a much deeper study of Epidemics was done in Ayurveda much before Allopathic studies.
In the following table, the WHO guidelines and preventive measures advocated are compared to the measures stated in Ayurvedic ancient scholarly texts:
Guidelines by the WHO
Guidelines in Ayurvedic Samhitas
Physical Distancing , Quarantine,
Avoiding mass gatherings
स्थानपरित्याग, return home (Sushruta)
Physical and Respiratory Hygiene
नीचरोमनखश्मश्रुर्निर्मलाङ्घ्रिमलायनः स्नानशीलः सुसुरभिः सुवेषो अनुल्बणोज्ज्वलः।। (Vagbhat)
Urban Lifestyle is one of the main reasons for Apacharaja Prakruti, which is nothing but a temporary state of Vikruti. Here, Roga Bala, and Rugna Agni play a very important role as far as the severity of the disease is concerned.
As urbanization increased, the rate of contamination of the four factors, water, air, land, and time (kaala), was faster. If the environment suffers, the result will be seen in the form of mutated crops and new illnesses in animals. The quality of basic food such as Milk, Grains, Pulses, Poultry, etc will be compromised and as a result, nutritional deficiencies will be seen in human beings to a larger extent. In addition, excessive use of pesticides in crops, injecting steroids in poultry, etc will result in hormonal imbalance and weak immunity in human beings.
The urban population focuses more on social status than on the status of individual health. Ignoring and breaking all rules of Aahara, Vihara, and Aachara lead to various lifestyle diseases and low immunity. Following Sadvrutta and Swasthavrutta is the key to a healthy lifestyle, which will not only prevent us from COVID-19 but also any other epidemic in the future.
