Abstract

MANAGEMENT OF GERIATRIC HEALTH ISSUES THROUGH AYURVEDA

Dr. Nilanjan Datta and Dr. Kanchan Chowdhury*

ABSTRACT

Study of the physiological and psychological changes which are incident in old age is called Gerontology and the care of aged is called clinical gerontology or Geriatric. India‘s older population will increase dramatically over the next four decades. 2010 and 2050, the share 65 and older is expected to increase from 5 percent to 14 percent, while the share in the oldest age group (80 and older) will triple from 1 percent to 3 percent. There are so many healthcare problems which need to be addressed by the society and medical fraternity. Older people differ from the younger ones in various aspects eg. they have a decreased physiological reserve, chronic (multiple) diseases, co morbidity, disability, frailty, and a few social issues like isolation, familial detachment and psychological issues. Because of lack of alertness at different level, Ayurveda can play a crucial role in treating and preventing geriatric issues by providing a holistic care. Through active prevention, following Dinacharya, Ritucharya, and of course with Rasayana therapy we can manage the geriatric issues effectively. So Ayurvedic approach is essential to improve and implement suitable strategies meant to evaluate and manage frail elderly patients with chronic diseases, comorbidity and mortality.

Keywords: Ayurveda, Geriatric Health, Management, Rasayana.
