Anwaar Anbrali

 The approach of any medical system for elderly women and men needs to address to the physical, mental, intel­lectual and spiritual aspects of life. Not satisfied with allo­pathic medications and the threat of serious side effects ever looming large in their minds, the elderly women and men have begun to use the complementary medical systems as a viable alternative to address to their health problems. Including Yoga, physical therapy, diet and aro­matherapy. Research suggests that yoga therapy may be a viable gentle physical activity option with a variety of health-related quality of life, psychological and physical symptom management benefits. Diet and nutritional therapy on the other hand, has shown solid evidence as an alternative medicine to reduce the symptoms of chron­ic diseases in elderly population.
