Most of the time we judge our age by what the calendar says, but that’s just a number. You also have a biological age and expectations reinforce your interpretation. The definition of biological age is: your age that is determined by physiology rather than chronology. Or, more simply, how healthy your body is rather than how many calendar years old you are. Research suggests that your biological age is a more accurate evaluation of your age, and the good news is that your biological age can actually become younger if you make healthy lifestyle choices. The truth is that you can slow down the aging process, and in many ways reverse it.
The Kaaya Kalpa program is a signature anti-aging program customized by Dhathri Ayurveda Hospital, to actually bring down your biological age. It is based on the lesser known but highly effective Vathathipikam version of Ayurveda. This simple and practical step-by-step program seeks out ways to renew all dimensions of the self—the body, mind, and spirit—in order to feel and look younger.
The focus is to attain a youthful mind, cultivate flexibility, strengthen your immune system, nourish your body, and much more. As you begin to reverse your biological age, you will find yourself tapping into your inner reservoirs of unlimited energy, creativity, and vitality.

The immune cells circulate more effectively around your body and are more vigilant against bacteria and viruses.
Over long periods of time, high levels of stress hormones such as adrenalin and cortisol can result in muscle tension and loss, high blood pressure, digestive problems, insomnia, chronic fatigue, reduced ability to heal and repair and a suppressed immune system — hardly a recipe for healthy aging.
