Description

Children are the vulnerable assets of a society. Only a healthy and intelligent child can become the reflection of a healthy society.  A child  differs so much in physical and mental attributes from an adult. Therefore special care and attention should be given in the growth and development as well as addressing health issues in children.

A child, constitutionally, after birth remains weak in all respects due to his or her immature immunity and body constituents. They are not matured in respect of their intelligence, wisdom and physical activities. They consider all the things around them as same and behave in the same way. Hence children are vulnerable to injuries, infections, diseases etc. Considering this fact, special care should be given during each and every stage of their growth and development. The concept of Child care is very ancient as per Ayurveda. In Ayurveda it is called as Balopacharaneeya or Kaumarabhritya, one among the eight branches of Ayurveda (Ashtangas). Various measures are being explained in Ayurveda classics right from the stage of pre conception till the progeny reaches adulthood. Neonatal care, breast feeding, nutritional aspects, importance of various cultural ceremonies in the development of a child, minor ailments and general line of treatment, home remedies etc  are all elaborately mentioned in Ayurveda. Since Ayurveda focuses on preventive aspect along with cure of diseases, a child can be well nourished to make him or her grown up into a healthy adult with immense immunity and vigor.
