JARACHIKITSA

GERIATRIC MEDICINE

The word ‘Jara’ means ‘old’ and Jarachikitsa refers to geriatric medicine, a field of medicine that addresses health issues related to old age. According to Ayurveda, those above the age of 70 are considered elderly since it is at this period in life
that a person’s vatta dosha is predominant. At this stage, the degeneration of tissue surpasses the body’s ability to regenerate, leading to inevitable physiological changes.
