SOCIAL ANXIETY Meaning

  • Social anxiety disorder - also called Social phobia – is the term used when normal day to day activities cause considerable anxiety, fear, embarrassment and discomfort because the sufferer has a fear of being judged by others.1

    In Ayurveda classics, anxiety is described as a symptom Chittodwega (restlessness of mind). It is further classified under a heading of psychiatric disorders called ‘Unmada’.2

    As per Ayurveda, inappropriate dietary habits such as Adhvashana (Improper foods) and Vishamashana (Opposing foods) may cause Vishada (Mental lethargy) resulting out of Pragya-paradha (mistakes of the intellect/mind).2

    These mistakes are referred to as - lack of self-control over eating and greediness in food habits. Conditions of the mind such as Duhkha (Despair)- that is produced due to loss of beloved one or any financial or social loss; Bhaya (fear), Irshya (jealousy), Dainya (timidity), Lobha (greed), Chinta (worry), Krodha (anger) may lead to Vishada (Mental lethargy).2

    Imbalanced tridosha especially Vata vitiated rajas are the doshas mainly involved in development of clinical anxiety.2
