A Healthy Child makes a Healthy Home

There is a garden in every childhood, an enchanted place where colors are brighter, the air softer, and the morning more fragrant than ever again. ~Elizabeth Lawrence.

We all wish that our children be the flowers of that garden , where they can bloom and be happy always  .The smile of a happy child warms up the coldest of hearts and fills every dark  corner with light .

I am a doctor and in my daily practice I have seen worried parents losing their sleep and calm when the apple of their eyes falls sick .Being a mother , I understand how life comes to a standstill when a chirpy  child goes  quiet and lies listless in his /her bed refusing food and play .How many precious school days are missed !

For years now I have been asking my patients to give their children Dabur ChywanPrash to improve their immunity and keep them from falling sick frequently  .It has specially helped in reducing the recurrences of common cold , influenza and allergic bronchitis .I have  read in Ayurvedic literature (Aarogya Dham Magazine )that ChywanPrash is  prepared with more than 40 powerful herbs which include

Ashwagandha -antistress, immune modulator
Guduchi -.rejuvenator ,immune modulator
Satavari -  promotes general health.,improves memory ,good for eyes.
Bala -  anti oxidant  and  a strength promoter
Vidarikand - Acts as a rejuvenator.
Amla -A powerful source of Vitamin C and  antioxidant .

My belief was reinforced  when I recently came across clinical and pre-clinical studies with Dabur Chyawanprash .These herbs  boost the body’s natural defence mechanism by stimulating the  NK cells* (Natural Killer Cells).They assist in fighting with virus and bacteria and thus help in keeping the body fighting fit and healthy .It has proven to increase the immunity to 3 times of its normal self .You can find out more  here https://www.liveveda.com/daburchyawanprash/

The research just gives more ground to our traditionally held beliefs ,kitchen wisdom and Ayurveda .

I myself use the sugar free version of Dabur Chywanprash for immunity  and also the antioxidants help in keeping my skin healthy.It is easy to give chyawanprash to my children as it comes in two different fruit flavors too - mixed fruit  and mango flavor .My kids lo-o-o-ove the mango flavor , so I give them a spoon each twice daily .Now isn't that easy ?
A child that does not fall sick frequently has more probability to achieve the normal percentiles of height and weight for their respective ages  and all round development .
