Vol. 14, Jul-Dec 2022


Essentially, Ayurveda is the science of life and longevity. Aging is a process marked by physical, mental and social changes in several dimensions. In present scenario, due to increase in aged people population, the medical science deal with aged population and the diseases occurring in that population. The Ayurvedic approach to geriatrics gives top priority to vatadosha as the main factor in the pathophysiology of aging. Rasadi Dhatus degrade in aging due to structural and functional changes. By using Rasayana we can increase the quality of Rasadi dhatu or tissues by also keeping strotases clean sturdy as the nutrition needed to be carried from one place to other place in the body .Thus Rasayan is considered helpful for optimum tissue health in old age, however they can be maintained and rejuvenated. The Rasayana therapy works primarily on nutrition dynamics and rejuvenates the body on both a mental and physical level. The Swabhavika Vyadhis include aging (Jara). Jara Chikitsa is one of the Ashtanga of Ayurveda and jarachikitsa is included under Rasayanatantra which is a specific branch in Ayurveda.
