Role of Kalavat Bhojan For Longevity of Life Through Delayed Aging

Kiran Sharma, Anupam Pathak and Karan Chugh

Aging is the natural process and characterised by wrinkles, gray hairs, slightly stooped posture etc. In present era due to busy and faulty lifestyle, signs of aging appear earlier. In Shabdkalpdrum the word Saundarya is defined as properly constructed and well defined body parts, which cannot be achieved without proper function of Agni. Proper function of Dosha and Dhatu primarily depends upon Agni, and as per Acharya Charak Agni is in the form of Pitta in our body. Prabha and Varna is the function of Avikrit Pitta and Agni. To keep Agni appropriately, timely intake of food is mandatory. In Charak Samhita, Ahara is considered as a fuel for Agni. In Ayurveda classic, emphasis is more on the food principles among which preference had been given to Kalavat and Matravat bhojana. Present literary study is aimed to justify the relationship between Agni and establish the process of senility. For this purpose all Brihadtrayi and Laghutrayi of Ayurveda were referred and articles concerned with intermittent fasting published in index journals were collected. In this study my primary focus is on Kalavat bhojan and Agni. In this presentation focus will be given to Kalavat bhojan and intermittent fasting and its relation with the aging process.
