Abstract

Aging is not a disease, however the risk of developing disease is increased. Geriatrics is a branch of medical science deals with problems of ageing & diseases of elderly. Ageing is a natural process. Ayurveda has prominently described the concept of ageing as „Jara‟ The word Jara itself has been derived from root word „Jru’ which means decline stage or old age. Jara is defined as, phenomenon of becoming old by the act of wearing out. It is synonymic as “vardhakya” meaning increasing age. The last stage of human life- Vriddhaawastha corresponds to the old age of modern ideology. According to Acharya Charak, ageing or Vridhhaawastha is between 60-100 years. Swabhav and Kala play pivotal role in the process of ageing. Jara is considered as natural phenomenon like hunger, thirst and sleep Modified improper dietary habits, sedentary life style, excessive stress and anxiety enhance the process of ageing. Some Common Geriatric Problems are Dementia and delirium, Arthritis, Urinary incontinence, Pressure ulcer- due to immobility, Diabetes, Hypertension etc. Ayurvedic Classics believe that human body is meant to be shatayushi (live for 100 years) provided one follows the right daily regimens (Dincharyas) that include Abhayanga (Ayurvedic Body Massage), Diet and exercise. Failure to follow a healthy lifestyle leads to development of lifestyle disorders, the risk of which increases with age. It is the demand of the hour to develop an effective holistic protocol for geriatric care by combining Rasayana, Panchkarma, Dietetics, Ayurvedic medicines, lifestyle and Yoga is timely. In Ayurveda there are tools for the same purpose are by exercising healthy life style & regular taking of Rasayana from the middle age of life. Ayurveda may be more applicable & success for the providing better healthy life specially in elderly age group.
