Ayurveda is perceived as one of the most ancient and well documented system of medicine. Its holistic approach whether for healthy individual or for diseased ones remains unparalleled. The main aim of Ayurveda is prevention of disease and promotion of health for which there are many herbs for daily use. As per Ayurveda the tissues of the body undergo a continuous process, process of decay created by the interaction of Agni (enzymes). If the process is allowed to continue, uninterrupted, the aging comes in early. In young age decay is slow and much less but in old age, normally the destructive activities are enhanced leading to disease and ultimately death. If this decay of cells is somehow slowed down the person leads a better quality of life, free from diseases. To achieve this, individual should adapt to a good quality of diet and regime along with which certain drugs can be taken which will further decrease the decay and enhance the quality of Sapta dhatu(tissues). This can be achieved by including Rasayana as a part daily regimen. Rasayana therapy can be administered to individual either through selected diet, drugs or regime. Apart from healthy individuals, even patients who are suffering from disease can be benefited from this therapy. Here an attempt has been made to throw some light on the role of Rasayana therapy in daily life for healthy living.
