The nervous system is largely responsible for our thoughts, emotions and movement.

Nervous system health: An Ayurvedic perspective

The nervous system is one of the most complicated and sophisticated systems of our body which helps to regulate, govern and coordinate our body.

Understanding the nervous system

Prolonged stress of all kinds, whether physical, mental or emotional has a negative effect on health. The advances in technology have contributed to prolonged stress with many people working longer hours and not disconnecting from work. Even relaxation isn’t truly relaxing as the senses and nervous system aren’t given the chance to relax due to social media scrolling, gaming, action films and exposure to the news 24/7.

Many herbs are suitable for self-care. However if a health condition does not resolve with home remedies we recommend using the information in Herbal Reality along with your health advisors, especially herbal practitioners from the professional associations listed in our Resources page (‘If you want to find a herbalist”). When buying any herbal products, you should choose responsible manufacturers with independently assured quality standards and sustainability practices. Check the label carefully for the appropriate safety and sustainability information.
