Alzheimer disease (AD) is increasing day by day. A significant fraction of the younger age group, as well as a considerable number in the senior age group, is affecting. Various attempts have been taken to define its aetiopathogenesis and predisposing factors. Various advanced techniques in the modern world have enabled us to get the real picture of the inside brain. Laudable description of similar conditions has been accounted for by Unani physicians in classical literature. They defined a condition similar to AD and termed it as Nasyan caused by the dominance of Baroodat in the brain. The symptoms are intensified when the dominance of Baroodat is accompanied by the dominance of Yuboosat. This paper is intended to propose a new aspect of understanding & managing AD on the principles of Unani medicine.
Keywords: Nasyan, Baroodat (coldness), Yuboosat (dryness).
