Ayurvedic Treatment for Schizophrenia - Types, Causes, Symptoms & Herbal Remedies


It is a disorder that develops slowly and the individual at initial stage does not realize that he is suffering from this problem, but in certain cases this problem can develop quickly. It is a mental disorder that is characterized with delusions, hallucinations and some other cognitive difficulties. This problem is considered as a mental illness that can also be the result of a monotonous life in which people keep working like machines with a lot of stress at work in their mind which largely affects their behavioral patterns.


  • Delusion
  • Thought Disorder
  • Social Withdrawal
  • Poor Expressions of Emotion
  • Hallucination
  • Lack of Motivation
  • Unawareness of Illness
  • Cognitive Difficulties

There are many more other symptoms that depend on the intensity of this disease. They can be negative, positive, cognitive or emotional symptoms.


There are various factors that can cause this particular problem. Genetic factor is also considered one of the main reasons. Besides it, there are many other reasons that are listed below.

  • Chemical imbalance in brain
  • Environmental factor
  • Family relationships
  • Drugs
  • Genetic inheritance


People suffering with this problem have to deal with it for life time. There are three main ways used by doctors to treat the symptoms:

  • Psychological counselling
  • Self-help resources
  • Certain medications(anti-psychosis drugs)

There are some medications that are most commonly used:

  • Risperidone (Risperdal) - less sedating than other atypical antipsychotics. There are side effects like Weight gain and diabetes, but chances of occurrence are quite less.
  • Olanzapine (Zyprexa) – this medication is helpful in dealing with negative symptoms of schizophrenia. But this can cause side effects that can lead to serious weight gain and the development of diabetes.
  • Quetiapine (Seroquel) –this is also associated with the same risk of gaining weight and diabetes.
  • Ziprasidone (Geodon) –this medication is also used in the treatment of this problem. Though the risk of weight gain and diabetes is lower than other atypical antipsychotics. However, it might contribute to cardiac arrhythmia.
  • Clozapine (Clozaril) –this medication is effective for patients who have been resistant to treatment. It helps in preventing suicidal behaviors in patients with schizophrenia. The risk of weight gain and diabetes is significant.
  • Haloperidol - an antipsychotic used to treat schizophrenia. It has a long-lasting effect (weeks).

As we know that there is no permanent solution to this mental disorder. Only certain medications can help in curing the symptoms of this particular problem.

But one way in which this problem can be treated is by using herbal ayurvedic remedies that are formulated by planet Ayurveda with pure and natural herbs which are free from any kind of side effects.
