Ayurvedic Treatment for ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE

Ayurvedic Treatment for Alzheimer’s Disease is generally divided into three phases- pre, disease and post phases. The initial phase of Ayurvedic treatment is for people who are prone to get Alzheimer’s disease and if properly guided under the Ayurvedic lifestyle and treatments, the onset will be delayed or even not happened. The main goal of Ayurvedic treatment in Alzheimer’s patients is to arrest the progression of the disease, avoid the outbreak of other diseases like diabetes, hypertension. So as a chronic journey, safe and simple Ayurvedic preparations will enhance confidence in the person and counter the depression which speeds up the progression of the disease. In the post phase, palliative measures are adopted to address the symptomatic relief of the issues. Alzheimer’s disease is an irreversible, progressive disorder that causes brain cells to waste away (degenerate) and die, eventually destroying memory and other important mental functions. This is the most common cause of dementia — a continuous decline in thinking, behavioural, and social skills that disrupts a person’s ability to function independently.

The pathogenesis and Ayurveda treatment of Alzheimer’s disease may be formulated regarding some of the disease models mentioned in the classical Ayurveda texts. The pathology of Alzheimer’s disease involves the degeneration of Kapala majja(brain) by vata resulting in the impairment of mental faculties like memory (smriti ), cognition (buddhi ), etc.
