• IntroductionShivaprakash, a 76-year-old man, had been living with dementia for several years. His condition had progressed to the point where he had withdrawn from social interactions, lost his ability to communicate verbally, and could not make eye contact with others. His life had become increasingly isolated, and he relied on psychiatric and modern dementia medications. However, his condition showed no signs of improvement even though he sought treatment at the Kottakal and Vishnu Ayurveda Hospital. He has been regular under treatment by Dr. Shaji Raj for over a month. Within a month of starting treatment, Shivaprakash's life began to transform, allowing him to walk, express himself with gestures and minimal verbal communication, and even ask for his brother.


Shivaprakash’s dementia had caused him to gradually withdraw from society. For two years, he had been unable to engage in social functions, and his family had noticed a significant deterioration in his overall condition. He exhibited a lack of eye contact, had stopped speaking to others, and had become increasingly non-communicative. The conventional treatment approach had primarily focused on psychiatric medications and modern drugs for dementia, with little to no improvement in his condition.He had been taking treatment from different ayurvedic institutions as well; Kottakkal and Vishnu Ayurveda Hospital for a month. But they couldn’t make much difference as well. However, his family remained hopeful that alternative therapies might hold the key to reconnecting with him.

A different diagnostic approach

Dr. Shaji noticed an incorrect posture in Shivaprakash that the former doctors and treatment plans missed out on. This led to a completely different approach to his treatment plan.
When former treatment plans focused on brain health, Dr. Shaji identified the faulty posture of the patient’s neck which caused an imbalance at the flow of energy in the spinal region with recurring back pain to be the root cause of the diagnosis.

Treatment Plan

For his treatment the doctor used the inhouse medicine Drive, an Arka medicine made from a potent combination of the five ingredients; Ashwagandha, Yuva, Gokshura, Sadhavai and Bala moola.


Within a month of the treatment, remarkable improvements were evident in Shivaprakash’s condition. He was not only able to walk but also demonstrated significant changes in his social behavior and communication skills. He began to make eye contact with others and could use gestures to communicate his needs and desires. Perhaps the most heartwarming transformation was his ability to ask for his brother.

The Ayurvedic approach, which emphasized correcting the disrupted energy flow in his spine and neck, appeared to be highly effective. It enabled Shivaprakash to reconnect with the world around him, thus enhancing his quality of life and improving his relationships with family members and caregivers.


Shivaprakash’s journey to overcome dementia through Ayurveda serves as an inspiring testament to the holistic healing approach offered by Ayurvedic medicine. The focus on correcting energy imbalances and postural issues not only improved his physical health but also had a profound impact on his mental and emotional well-being.

This case study highlights the potential of alternative therapies, such as Ayurveda, in addressing complex neurological conditions like dementia. It emphasizes the importance of considering the interconnectedness of physical and mental health in the treatment of such conditions. Shivaprakash’s remarkable transformation provides hope for individuals and families facing similar challenges and underscores the significance of seeking alternative treatment options when conventional medicine falls short.
