How Ayurveda Counteracts The Effects of Ageing

Ageing is defined as the process of growing old, where physical, psychological, hormonal, and social changes take place, over a period of time. Ageing is characterized by wrinkled skin, dry skin with dark patches, loss of elasticity, and dullness.

The psychological aspect of ageing is beyond our control to quite an extent, but the physical changes can be prevented by following a proper diet, good skin care, routine exercises, and by embracing a healthy lifestyle.

Causes of Ageing

The current generation is plagued by premature (early) ageing, and it is attributed to the various causes mentioned below:

  • Stress and anxiety
  • Unhealthy diet
  • Lack of sleep
  • Chemicals and pesticides in food
  • Sedentary lifestyle
  • Pollution

Premature ageing is manifested in the form of early greying of hair, dark circles, acne, pimples, hyperpigmentation, dry and dull skin, brittle bones and chronic tiredness.

Role of Ayurveda to Prevent Ageing

The process of early ageing can be prevented or slowed down by embracing Ayurveda. According to Ayurveda, ageing is influenced by three main doshas namely Vata, Pitta, and Kapha.

  • Vata (water & earth) - experienced during childhood with evolving digestive system
  • Pitta (water & fire) - experienced during teenage and youth with fully developed digestive system
  • Kapha (air & space) - experienced when nearing old age with a depreciating digestive system

Ayurveda provides a solution for ageing by recommending healthy lifestyle changes, which include proper diet, exercises, meditation and adequate sleep.
