This picture shows some of Dr. Ashwin’s good work at the Ayurveda clinic here in India.
I can’t say enough about the efficacy and safety of Ayurvedic herbalism for enhancing family health and infant care. Kids can benefit from the gentle approach to boost the body’s natural systems in acute and chronic concerns. This baby was recovering from a fever which turned into a lingering cough. She is doing very well now. Her parents gave her just a few days of safe herbs at home.
Back in America at the clinic, in addition to general health we also work a lot with families, too. We have great strategies for enhancing prenatal health all the way through the postpartum period, plus helping babies. We do a lot of education to help families assist their kids through colds and fevers.
It’s out there: a natural system to lean on when you want to work with the body’s innate healing mechanisms. It is just about trusting the body and weaving holistic protocols into ones life. What better gift can we give our children but helping them understand that they are a part of nature by helping them to understand how to trust the body and go with nature.
