Pranayama is a Yogic technique which ensure homeostasis between physical and mental health. Bhramari is one of the 8 types of Pranayama as explained by Sage Patanjali which is considered to be effective in maintaining mental health. The following article discusses the probable use of Bhramari in Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD). Various publications from Pubmed, Google Scholar, Scopus etc were reviewed to reinforce the hypothesis that Bhramari can be effective in GAD. It is worthwhile known that Bhramari is effective in various stressful conditions but its efficacy against GAD is not yet proven. Since GAD is one of the most common mental disorders, it is hypothesised that Bhramari acts good against GAD too. Hence, it can be concluded that it would be beneficial to conduct larger studies on GAD patients to ascertain the efficacy of Bhramari in their population.
