Abstract

Geriatrics is emerging as a most challenging and promising field of twenty first century. As the population of aged people is increasing, not only in India but throughout the world, it has raised both medical and sociological needs. In India the last decade has projected as significantly rising rate of aging population and hence a great need is now felt to strengthen the geriatric health care in this fast developing country. Conventional System of medicine has no much to look after in the care area of geriatric health. Experts feel the increasing requirement of the medical management of the diseases of old age.Ayurveda is the science of not only medicine but as well as of life and longevity. It presents a sound concept and science of aging, its delaying and management. Ayurveda specially incorporates rasayana (drugs and treatment for rejuvenation) as one of its eight specialties, which is exclusively devoted to nutrition, health and immunity promotion and geriatrics.
