Why Ayurvedic Tonics Are Beneficial For Kids?

Becoming a parent completely changes your world. Isn’t it? Your world starts to revolve around your children. All you want is to see them happy, healthy and cheerful. You want to provide them with the best of education, facilities, food and an abundance of love. What about their healthcare? What do you do when your child falls ill? In the majority of the cases, parents succumb to anxiety and give their children a dose of over-the-counter antibiotic medicine. These medicines, no doubt, provide immediate relief but in the long run, might make your children more susceptible to infections. This is because children have an immature immune system and their body reacts differently to the medicines than adults.

So, is there any safer, healthier alternative for kids? Ayurveda tonic for kids can be a solution for it. Read on this blog to know more about it.

Ayurveda for kids

Ayurveda, the most ancient and popular system of medicine, known for offering safe and gentle medicines and treatment, can be used effectively to treat people of all ages. Children especially can get immensely benefitted from Ayurveda, as it heals their health problems safely without causing side effects. Secondly, health problems should be addressed from their root level to reduce the recurrence of the disorder and increase immunity in children. This is how Ayurveda tonic for kids works. Ayurvedic tonics do not focus merely on suppressing the physical symptoms of the disorder; they correct the root cause of it and eliminate the dosha imbalances involved. They give a chance to a child’s body to develop its own antibodies, leading to fewer bouts of recurrence of diseases.

Ayurveda tonic for kids are effective in treating a variety of health problems. Whether it is acute or chronic health problems like cold, cough, flu, fever, asthma, bedwetting, and digestive problems, Ayurveda can effectively manage them all.

Ayurveda works with the cycle and rhythm of life and the natural world and it fosters strength, resilience, intelligence and good health in children. Each child is offered different remedies and tonics in Ayurveda treatment as their body composition or prakriti is different. There is no one-size-fits-all medicine approach in Ayurveda.

According to Ayurveda, each individual has an established prakriti at the time of birth that remains constant over the course of his or her lifetime. It represents the individual’s natural state of equilibrium. If there is an imbalance in the doshas, mental or physical disease symptoms occur. Therefore, the Ayurvedic medicines provided to children help them in establishing the lost balance and good health.

Ayurvedic diet and lifestyle for kids

Besides giving Ayurvedic tonic for kids, it is important to teach them the Ayurvedic way of living. The diet and lifestyle recommended by Ayurveda are as per the prakriti (body constitution) of each child. It helps strengthen both the mind and body of children, protects them from illnesses and infections from occurring in the first place, fastens the healing process and improves the overall quality of life.
