Alzheimer's disease is a progressive neurological disorder where the brain cells degenerate causing memory loss and cognitive decline. The disease starts with mild memory loss and eventually the person is likely to need full time assistance.
Alzheimer's is thought to be caused by abnormal build-up of amyloid proteins which forms plaques around brain cells.
Alzheimer's disease is the most common form of dementia and it mainly causes memory loss of recent events, difficulty in completing familiar tasks, confusion with time or place and problems with language usage.
According to Ayurveda, alzheimer's is considered as smrithinasha caused by depletion of dhatus( tissue elements) due to vitiation of vata dosha.
For most people alzheimer's disease is caused by a combination of genetic, lifestyle and environmental factors that affects the brain over time. It is more likely to occur in aged people, with strong family history or if the person is female.
Alzheimer's disease occurs with the advancement of age when vata gets severely vitiated in Majja dhatu (the tissue layer which includes the CNS and all other tissues which are contained in the bone). This provoked vata causes drying and degeneration of brain gradually leading to onset of symptoms in individuals.
