This year’s slogan for WHO is “Depression-Let us talk”. So brain disorder is major emerging problem of this century. 5% of total population of India is suffering from mental disorders. These are the known reported case, but actually the brain disorder patients are more. Because of social problem, people are not ready to accept that they are suffering from mental problem. Conventional treatment for these problems includes hypnotic drugs, sedative drugs, mood elevating drugs, hormonal treatment etc. having lots of side effects. In Indian tradition, Ayurveda treatment gives best solution for it. When I review these known traditional herbs on the basis of modern parameters, I found that they are highly effective, having most promising results Herbs are enough capable to reduce stress, anxiety, depression, also they have good result to increase cognition, mental ability and intelligence. Herbs are also effective to cure Parkinson’s, varicose veins, impaired blood supply, etc.
In this study I review the effect of Ashwagandha, brahmi, shankhpushpi, mandukparni, amla and tulsi, and I found that they are very effective in brain disorders.
