Ayurveda is the ancient medical science from which Yoga emerged. It dates back to 3500 B.C.E. in texts from the Indus Valley called the Vedas and is the oldest recorded wisdom on the earth. Based on the fundamental laws of nature, Ayurveda propounds a highly evolved science of life, health and cure where the concept of aging and rejuvenation finds a prominent place. Aging begins before birth and continues throughout life at different rates for different individuals and in different tissues of the body. It involves two equal and opposite forces that play in a great tug of war across the arc of life: growth and atrophy. Aging is the result of structural and functional changes an entire life span. In India the Ayurvedic School of medicine is probably the first to describe the science of life, its central theme being efforts to protect life from disease and aging. Rasayana is one of the eight clinical specialties of classical Ayurveda. Rasayana is not a drug therapy but is a specialized procedure practiced in the form of rejuvenative recipes, dietary regimen and special health promoting conduct and behavior i.e., Achara-Rasayana. Rasayana means the way for attaining excellent Rasa i.e. one attains longevity, memory, intelligence, freedom from disorder, youthful age, excellence of luster, complexion and voice, optimum strength of physique and sense organs, successful words, respectability and brilliance.” – modified Abstract by Dr. Pramod Singh
