Ayurvedic Remedies May Help With Alzheimer's

Researchers studied five plants commonly used in Ayurvedic medicine, and found that the plants acted to prevent the breakdown of neurotransmitters, improving memory and concentration in people with Alzheimer's disease.

The BBC reported in "India drug gives Alzheimer's hope" (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/south_asia/5314826.stm) that researchers "are now trying to identify the chemical compounds responsible so they can be used to develop more effective drugs."

Ayurvedic medicine uses herbs and spices, as well as massage techniques and yoga, for healing.
