Ayurvedic Herbs For Alzheimer’s
Ayurveda’s 5,000 year old system for health and healing provides an incredible array of herbs to treat Alzheimer’s disease. This condition is characterized by a gradual degeneration of brain cells and has become quite common in older people. Ayurvedic herbs are being looked at as a powerful natural way to help minimize the problems associated with this disease.
Even though Alzheimer’s disease affects the elderly, there are early warning signs and risk factors that can be identified including head trauma, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, lack of daily brain exercise, coronary artery disease, and genetics.
The warning signs are not always immediately apparent, but can be noted: gradual memory loss is the most common, poor cognitive skills also raise a flag, as well as dementia and personality problems.
There is no known cure and Alzheimer’s disease progresses over time. Because the disease causes brain tissue degeneration, it is important to use the appropriate herbs to help balance out the negative effects.
Guduchi, Pancha-Tikta-Ghruta Gugguli, Amalaki, and Musta are a few Ayurvedic herbs that are often used to treat Alzheimer’s. Herbs such as these treat brain damage and benefit brain cell functionality.
One of the most important things to do if you are at risk of developing Alzheimer’s is to practice routine brain exercises. This in conjunction with consistent use of Ayurvedic herbs can have a powerful regenerative and normalizing effect.
These natural remedies and formulas include Mandukparni, Guduchi, Yashtimadhuk, Padma, Vacha, Convolvulus pluricaulis, Nelumbo nucifera, Shankhpushpi and many more. These natural herbs are great for slowing down the worsening progress of the disease, as they decrease the imminent destruction of brain cells. Because of their ability to achieve a certain level of the brain’s working potential, these remedies are great in stabilizing brain functions and when used consistently, can even help regenerate the brain cells that have been damaged by the disease.
There are a number of other Ayurvedic herbs that also help minimize the problems caused by Alzheimer’s. Unfortunately, there has not been enough modern research about these herbs, however, researchers are more and more beginning to see their potential.
One of the best Ayurvedic Alzheimer’s treatments on the market is AlzCare. AlzCare includes a proprietary blend of Arjun, Amalaki, Ashwagandha, Galo Satva, and Kutaj. This blend of five rejuvenating herbs naturally keeps the brain cells well-nourished and normalizes the depleted tissue elements by maintaining blood supply and oxygen. Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) powder acts as Nervine tonic that rejuvenates the cells and boosts energy.
It is very important to get an early and accurate diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease in order to effectively treat it as early as possible. These herbal treatments should begin (along with regular brain exercises) immediately after diagnosis to maximize the potential of leading a normal and healthy life.
