Natural care for Alzheimer disease
Alzheimer is a chronic neurodegenerative disease (mostly of old age). The common symptoms are – difficulty in remembering the recent events i.e. short-term memory loss due to predominant imbalanced air circulation (Vata Dosha) in the nervous system. This condition is known as Pragyaparadh (mistakes of the intellect) in the ancient medical science of Ayurveda. Body humor & bio-energies regulate three fundamental functions of mind i.e. learning (Dhi), processing (Dhriti) and recalling information (Smriti). Alternative natural ways focus on balancing body humor (Tridoshas) to naturally enhance learning, processing, and recalling.
Natural Alzheimer’s solutions can prevent gradual memory loss, difficulty in solving, confusion with time/place, the problem in finding the right words in conversation, withdrawal from social activities and work, mood swings etc.
Time-testedancient ways to manage Alzheimer
Ayurvedic Alzheimer’s doctors first focus on balancing the imbalanced air circulation of the nervous system. This imbalance generally occurs due to the old age. Further, Alzheimer’s natural therapy also includes the use of natural brain tonics (Medhya Rasayana) for rejuvenation & to nourish the brain cells at the desired level. Additionally, Alzheimer’s therapy offers enema (Basti), massage with natural oil (Abhyanga), nasal therapy (Nasya), retaining the natural oil over the head with the help of a leather cap (Shirobasti), gently pouring natural liquids over the forehead (Shirodhara) etc.

Yoga for Alzheimer
Bhujangasana : – With the progression of Alzheimer or Dementia, the patient starts becoming depressed and starts attaining a forward and round shoulder posture. This Asana helps in the extension of the back and body as a whole.
Utkatasana : – It helps in the stretching of upper limb & strengthening the lower body.
Pranayama for Alzheimer
Bhramari Pranayama : – As the disease progresses, the patient suffers from short-term memory loss and becomes more confused, agitated and angry. Consequently, blood pressure can rise. Thus, this Pranayama helps to calm and to relieve anxiety by regulating blood pressure.
Anulom Vilom Pranayama: – Rapid shallow breathing patterns are good for people living in stress where the depleted oxygen levels aggravate the mind. Hence, good oxygen levels are brought to the lungs and brain for the proper functioning of the body through the practice of Anulom Vilom.
Exercise for Alzheimer
Stretching exercises: – Exercises such as calf stretches, hamstring stretches, quadriceps stretch, spinal stretches, pectorals stretches prevent the muscles going into tightness which is very common due to the withdrawal of physical activities in daily life.
Strengthening exercise: – The muscles remain toned as long as we use them, & if we don’t, that leads to atrophy of the muscles and thereby functional deficits. So, this exercise can be very effective during Alzheimer’s disease.
