“Life exists at the edge of chaos”

Said Kaufman about evolving natural state

Complexity is a part of holistic paradigm

Redefining concept of life and its fate.

Disease is aberration in organism's functions

Normal state is not regularity or stability

Neither the balanced state of homeostasis

Rather a dynamic, stable state, variability

Inter-beat intervals of the heart is chaotic,

Changing blood pressure or respiratory rate in phase space,

Persistent orderliness is predictably abnormal

Fluctuation is must in different situations we face

Growing older, or encountering disease,

Man loses the complexity of the youth

Degrading the physiological signals

Vulnerability objectively induced

Hence, the multi-morbidity, the elderly suffer

Frailty, sarcopenia, falls, and cataract

Affecting activities of daily living

Osteoarthritis, osteoporosis are bitter facts

Loss of heart rate variability

And nocturnal dip of blood pressure

Lass of balance while rising up

Alzheimer comes as a great depressor

Prevention is better than cure, an adage

Measures to be taken while young

Diet, exercise, yoga, meditation,

May help even before the aberrations sprung.

Financial support and sponsorship


Conflicts of interest

There are no conflicts of interest.
