Abstract

GERIATRIC CARE IN SIDDHA SYSTEM OF MEDICINE -A REVIEW

Dr. S. Radha*

ABSTRACT

Ageing is the process of growing old. It is an inevitable and irreversible process that leads to progressive and generalised impairment of functions. The advanced development and discoveries in medical science has increased the life span of our society. It is now becoming a problem in developed and in developing countries as they have the high ratio of population ageing. Since we cannot stop the process of ageing, it has become a matter of urgency to look for ways that could improve the functional abilities of elderly and to have a healthy ageing. This can be achieved by following kayakarpam methods mentioned in our Siddha system of Medicine. This paper is to discuss about the herbs like Withania somnifera, Tinospora cordifolia, Allium cepa, Allium sativum, Terminalia chebula, Zingiber officinale that are used in Siddha Medicine that act as rejuvenators and the habits to be followed in preventing age related complications in elderly.

Keywords: Ageing, Siddha Medicine, Kayakarpam, Rejuvenation, Healthy ageing.
