Alzheimer’s ,The Silent Killer


As defined by Mayo Clinic, world’s leading academic medical centre , Alzheimer’s Disease is a progressive neurologic disorder that causes the brain to shrink (atrophy) and brain cells to die.

Alzheimer’s is the most common form of dementia, which is a symptom that affects the brain — a continuous decline in thinking, behavioural and social skills that affects a person’s ability to function independently, making up 60 to 80 percent of dementia cases. Even though the terms “Dementia” and “Alzheimer’s” are often used interchangeably, dementia is not actually a disease

The disease is named after German psychiatrist and pathologist Alois Alzheimer, who first described it in 1906.

Recent Findings

As per ADDI, (Alzhemer’s Disease Data Initiative), a renowned Medical Research Centre

USA,  in their  report published in November 2021,says more than 55 million people worldwide  are living with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias.

The total number of people with dementia is projected to reach 82 million in 2030 and 152 million in 2050.Interestingly,Alzheimer’s is often referred to as a “woman’s disease.” Recent facts show that two-thirds of all Alzheimer’s cases are in women. Researchers are still investigating why women are more likely to develop Alzheimer’s than men are. ( Being Patient is the leading online community for Alzheimer’s & dementia patients & caregivers)

As per Life expectancy varies depending on the person or when someone developed the disease. The Mayo Clinic reports that in general, most people live for 3 to 11 years after they are diagnosed.

The World Health Organization estimates (2019 data)that worldwide it costs $1.3 trillion per year to treat people with Alzheimer’s disease or related dementias. The WHO predicts that worldwide, dementia deaths will increase by more than 40 percent between 2015 and 2030.

In India, more than 4 million people are estimated to be suffering from Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia, giving the country the third highest caseload in the world, after China and the USA.


The early signs of the disease include forgetting recent events or conversations. As the disease progresses, a person with Alzheimer’s disease will develop severe memory impairment and lose the ability to carry out everyday tasks.

Brahmi , Medicial Ayurvedic Plant  Can Help

Brahmi, is a medicinal herb,known to be widely beneficial in boosting memory and preventing causes of dementia and highly recommended by Indian Ayurveda, and other alternative medicines.

The latest medical research corroborates Ayurveda’s claim that Brahmi is a  brain-rejuvenating plant and useful for Alzheimer patients. It has significant memory-promoting effect. The memory enhancing properties of Brahmi are due to the presence of bacoside A, bio-chemical which helps in re-building damaged brain tissues
