Abstract

ROLE OF BRAHMI IN ATTENTION DEFICIT HYPERACTIVITY DISORDER (ADHD): AN ANALYTICAL REVIEW

Diksha Upreti, Alok Kumar Srivastava, Reena Pandey, Lalita Sharma, Poonam

ABSTRACT

Attention deficit Hyperactivity disorder is aneuro developmental type of brain disorder, specially involving dopamine and nor epinephrine neurotransmitter which govern a variety of cognitive process, directly responsible for the control of behavior, motivation and motor function. It is characterized by hyperactivity, impulsiveness and inattention. ADHD is more commen in boys than girls (male to female ratio 4:1 for hyperactivity type and 2:1 for inattentive type). ADHD affects children and teens and can continue into adulthood. Children with ADHD have been found to have cognitive deficits, lower IQ, impaired social relationships with in the family and with peers as well as poor study skills and lower academic achievement. In Ayurveda it occurs due to vitiation of dhee (rational thinking), dhriti (intellect / retaining power of the mind), smriti (memory) which results into improper contact of the senses with their objectives and give rise to inattention, hyperactivity and impulsivity. In Ayurvedic texts Medhya Rasayanare described which are used as Shaman chikitsa for these types of disorders because Medhya drugs improve coordination, cognition and concentration capacity of the brain. Chark described 4 drugs in medhya Rasayan. BRAHMI chemical constituents show good effects on ADHD. ADHD is on the rise globally so the brahmi (Bacopa) is a natural substance that has the ability to significantly help ADHD without all the scary side effects of psycho-stimulants.

Keywords: ADHD, medhya rasayan BRAHMI.
