The process of aging in the light of Ayurveda
Keywords:ayurveda, aging, adaptation, rasayana, balance
Tackling the problem of aging is the same age as humanity. All ages have been con- cerned with solving the problem of aging, both the ancient philosophies of life (Vedic philosophies, Taoism) and the science of today. Basically based on observaton and logical interacton, the theories and practces of Ayurveda are very similar to the modern scientfc concepton, in some places (the question of balance) even going beyond it. In the perception of Ayurveda, aging is a compensatory process that can be infuenced and optmized by adaptation aids and methods.
