Abstract

Body is defined as “that which decays” what decays is the group of dhatus, the constituent tissues that support the life. Ageing is defined as a progressive impairment of function resulting in loss of adaptive responses to stress and a growing risk of aggravated diseases As per the Ayurvedic principles there is a predominance of vata in old age which is said to be one of the important cause of ageing. The vitiated vata affects adversely the strength, complexion and happiness, the span of life, sense faculties and functions of motor organs and gives rise to fear, anxiety, bewilderment, and take away the life. No special symptoms are mentioned in Ayurvedic text about the ageing effects on particular dhatus. Whatever signs and symptoms of ageing are explained, out of them some or other symptoms pertain to one or other dhatu. This article mainly focused on effects of ageing on different dhatus with respect to different systems of the body.
