WHAT IS ALZHEIMERS DISEASE?

Alzheimer's disease refers to a condition which causes loss of memory and other important mental functions. The condition starts with some incidences of confusion and difficulty in remembering by slowly people tend to forget important things in their lives.1

Alzheimer’s disease does not find a specific mention in Ayurvedic texts, but symptomatically it can be considered under the aegis of Smritivibhransha (memory loss) and vata vyadhi.2

Ayurveda mentions the concept of Tridosha (Vata, Pitta, Kapha) and credits all diseases due to imbalance of the tridoshas. Correlating Alzheimer’s disease with Ayurveda can be under the nervous system disorders mentioned under Vatavyadhi - caused due to imbalance of vata. 2

The samprapti (pathophysiology) of Alzheimer’s disease, vitiation of vata in the tissues of body and the brain, causes it to gradually move in a stage of imbalance. Alternatively, the balance of three manasik gunas - satvik, rajasik, tamsik, gets disturbed and cause imbalance of mental faculties. 2
