  • Mental Stress – This is caused by an imbalance of Vata dosha. An individual’s mind becomes hyperactive. They lose the ability to make plain decisions or to think positively or to do their day-to-day activities or to even fall asleep at night. It can be treated by eating Vata balancing foods, with sweet, sour and salty tasting dishes’. Taking warm milk and light dietary product can set right the mental stress issues. A daily massage with warm oil can prove to be helpful.
  • Emotional Stress – This is caused by an imbalance of Pitta dosha. An individual becomes irritable, becomes depressed and causes emotional instability. A person with emotional stress cannot sleep at night. It can cause you to wake up and not be able to go back to sleep.
  • It can be treated by drinking lot of sweet juicy fruits, foods with sweet, bitter and astringent taste. Before going to bed, drink warm milk added with rose petals. A daily massage with coconut oil will be very helpful.
