Life is a process that beings at conception and continues as long as we live. As per Ayurveda, the lifespan (ayu) is divided into four parts, viz. Balyavastha (infancy), Krishoravastha (childhood), Yuvastha (youth), Vridhavastha (old age). Old age is not a disease, but a natural process that occurs in everybody’s life.
Old age in general beings at the age of 60 and goes on till the normal lifespan.
In old age due to physiological and pathological changes, the body generates less metabolic heat and muscle mass. Gradual deterioration, impaired neurotransmission, decreasing ability and inactivity occurs.
