Alzheimer's disease is the most prevalent form of dementia and is a slowly progressing neurological condition. Loss of behavioral and cognitive capacities, such as thinking, remembering, and reasoning, is a clinical symptom. It is unclear what causes this illness specifically. There is currently no known cure for Alzheimer's disease in modern medicine, while there are therapies that can help with the symptoms. Such a situation may be associated with Jara janya Smrutibhramsha and is primarily regarded in Ayurveda as a form of Manas vyadhi. Information on the idea of Alzheimer's disease, its etiology, pathophysiology, signs and symptoms, as well as potential treatment choices, has been gathered from textbooks on Ayurveda and Western medicine, as well as from numerous websites and articles. The essay makes an effort to streamline the treatment of Alzheimer's disease and covers all facets of this condition using an integrated approach (Ayurvedic and modern medicine). The care of Manas vyadhi, particularly with regard to dementia and Alzheimer's disease, will undoubtedly benefit from a holistic approach that incorporates a healthy lifestyle, Panchkarma purification, and integrated palliative medicine.
