Ageing is an inevitable process that brings about a host of physical and psychological changes to an individual. Increasing age is associated with a general slowing down of metabolism, cardiovascular & respiratory issues, musculoskeletal weakness as well as degenerative conditions such as arthritis, osteoporosis, and age related urinary problems. Additionally nagging problems like indigestion, insomnia, exhaustion and diminishing memory are common age-related health concerns.
Ayurveda considers aging as vardhakya, referring to the natural occurrence of becoming old. According to Ayurveda, as an individual ages, Vata emerges as the dominant dosha. The Vata imbalance in turn leads to acceleration of the degenerative phenomenon. Ayurveda approach to geriatric care is focused on balancing the Vata achieved via a combination of medication, rejuvenation therapies and lifestyle changes that enhance the physiological processes influencing metabolic and immunological status.
