COVID-19 and Mental Health- Ayurveda can help

Pandemic COVID-19 ,  poses a serious threat to older people with Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and other dementias. Considering the age of SARS-CoV-2 infected patients, the potential might lead to the development of neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s Disease.

The first report on the neurological manifestations of COVID-19 showed that “impaired consciousness,” including reduced consciousness level or delirium occurred more frequently among severe COVID-19 patients (13/88, 14.8%) compared to those with less severe disease (3/126, 2.4%).

In one study, 1 in 10 patients have been reporting memory problems after mild cases of COVID-19 which did not require hospitalization, even 8 months after disease.

COVID-19 may heighten the risk of developing Alzheimer’s, and COVID-19 can cause an increase in blood-based molecular biomarkers for Alzheimer’s disease.

On the other hand, recent data suggest that people with dementia are associated with an increased risk of having severe COVID-19 and mortality associated with it. In addition, the related public health interventions (e.g., physical distancing or lockdown) have major adverse impacts upon the well-being and the care of older people with dementia, and those caring for them.


Brahmi ,an ancient ayurvedic medicinal herb, is found to improve the total memory score and maximum improvement was seen in logical memory and paired-associate learning in humans. In a study on geriatric patients with onset of Alzheimer, Brahmi was found to have induced significant improvements in the orientation of time, place, person and attention components amongst the patients.

Brahmi promises to be a high potential agent against Alzheimer’s disease. The corroboration by modern medical research on the efficacy of Brahmi reinforces the trust Ayurveda has placed on Brahmi .
