Childrens Health Guidelines

Overview of Childrens Health

Childrens health is imperative, and developing a significant level of natural immunity as they grow is crucial. Ayurveda offers various proven methods to help children and infants naturally enhance their immunity. The practice of Ayurveda encompasses profound wisdom applicable to both children and adults alike.

However, it is crucial to acknowledge that, irrespective of the remedy used,whether natural or chemical,consulting with a medical professional is essential.They possess a deeper understanding of your child’s health and can recommend appropriate dosages that yield optimal and long-lasting results. Ayurveda operates in harmony with the life cycles and energies of the natural world, fostering strength, resilience, and vibrant health.Childrens health can benefit from Ayurvedic principles as it is a natural approach that does not hinder their growth rate.Ayurveda reignites their innate capacity to grow, heal, and thrive.

Ayurveda celebrates individual differences and presents a unique medical system that rejects a “one-size-fits-all” approach. It acknowledges the unique health requirements of each individual, including childrens health,based on their genetic makeup. An Ayurvedic assessment can determine your child’s current physical state and balance.According to Ayurvedic principles, maintaining a healthy balance among the three essential doshas in the human body is vital.The following section will elaborate on each dosha and prevalent traits associated with them,aiding in restoring your child’s immunity.

Vata:                                                                                                            Children with a lean physique, irregular appetite, tendency to feel cold quickly, dry skin,thin tightly curled hair, and light skin tone with duskier undertones typically exhibit Vata characteristics. These children are often sharp, witty, and creative. Excess Vata may manifest as anxiety episodes, physical and emotional restlessness, fidgety eating habits, insomnia, and digestive issues.

Pitta:                                                                                                           Children with a moderate build, healthy appetite, and intolerance to hunger, dislike for warm weather, \fine straight hair, sharp eyesight, intelligence, articulate speech patterns, and innovative minds are indicative of Pitta traits. Excess Pitta can result in inflammation, diarrhea, easily irritated skin, and anger issues.

Kapha:                                                                                                              Children with a solid and sturdy physical appearance, notable endurance and strength, slow digestion,mild appetite, oily smooth skin, and thick-wavy hair typically exhibit Kapha traits. These children are often mature for their age and compassionate. Challenges associated with excess Kapha include slow digestion, congestion, lethargy, excessive sleep, depression, and weight gain.

The digestive system plays a pivotal role for overall childrens health. A healthy gut is synonymous with a healthy life. Ayurveda explains that the stomach contains a central digestive fire responsible for transforming food into energy. Immunity is closely linked to gut health. Recurrent illnesses in children may indicate underlying issues with their gut. Poor appetite can signify sluggish digestion, often caused by the accumulation of impurities and toxins in the digestive tract, known as ama in Ayurveda. Excessive ama buildup can lead to weakened immunity, poor digestion, insomnia, and mood swings.
