Preface

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.

Ageing bodies reflect the genetic capacity to adapt and repair, even from the cumulative damage cause by disease. Ageing highlights our strengths as well as weaknesses—physical and mental health. In this book an attempt has been made to discuss the points mentioned above. The brief introduction to Ayurveda explains the essence of the subject matter.

I have tried to cover all the possible problems which people face in old age and otherwise, like asthma, hypertension, diabetes, cardiac problems, etc as well as mental problems like anxiety and depression have all been looked into.

I have also explained the preventions and precautions that people should take through yoga, meditation, diet, etc.

This book also tells you about the different treatments that are useful in old age diseases.

It highlights Ayurvedic principles and values to enable us to lead healthy lives.
