Ayurvedic Approach on Memory Stimulation in Guadeloupe: A Pilot Study

Background: We decided to give cognitive stimulation sessions in order to avoid Alzheimer’s disease.

Our study’s objectives are to assess the effectiveness of cognitive stimulation over three months, as well as to estimate the effects of the three ayurvedic constitutional categories on the effectiveness of cognitive stimulation.

Methods: We used self-assessment questionnaires that included Prakriti and memory complaint, as well as several scales of perceived health (cognitive, physical, mental, and well-being/quality of life) and an associative memory test to look at the ayurvedic categories, overall health perceptions, associative memory complaint, and evolution in 28 healthy elderly people at T1 and T2 (three months later), as well as 12 healthy controls who weren’t stimulated.

The Pitta-Kapha population has the highest representation. Between the two eras, the severity of cognitive and holistic state reduces, but not physical health. Cognitive and memory problems are either minor or non-existent. We may evaluate our health perception and associative memory predictions using regression models.

Conclusion: Cognitive stimulation is beneficial, and ayurvedic categories provide a valuable framework for understanding individual differences in cognitive functioning in healthy older adults.
