"To keep the body in good health is a duty...otherwise we might not be able to keep our mid strong and clear." -Buddha
Ayurveda (Life-knowledge) is referred to as the “mother of all healing systems”.
The Lord hath created medicines (Ayurvedic) out of the earth; and he that is wise will not abhor them. ~Ecclesiasticus 38:4
Ayurveda is not a weird diet and the practitioners are not really tree-hugging woo-woos with an extreme affinity for Mother Nature (they're normal people who take really good care of themselves & their communities). Funny how we make expectations & judgments about things before we even try them.
Ayurveda, though it is our ancient medicine, isn't appreciated by our society. Allopathy has taken over massively. The traditional medicine has lost its sheen over the years. It is not popular today because of lack of funding from the govenrment as well as the private sector. All the money is being spent on allopathic drugs, which have massive side effects.
Ayurveda also plays a vital role in a baby's early growth & development. The aim of any parent is to provide a healthy environment to the child for appropriate nourishment enabling the kid to be able to face the pressures of our increasingly complex lifestyles.
My childhood was under the protection, love and care of my grandmother. Whenever I suffered from common cold, cough, indigestion, stomach pain etc., my grandmother pops into the kitchen and does some magic and the problem vanishes. It's wonderful how without any side effects, we are able to recover with the help of ayurvedic medicine.
It is rightly said:
"I move with the infinite in Nature's power.
I hold the fire of the soul.
I hold life and healing."
Childcare is a sensitive issue. Side effects of processed and synthetic products easily affect kids. It's always recommended by many doctors and also Home-Doctors (Grandma) to go Natural!
I have seen my sister massaging my 3-year-old niece with Dabur Lal Tail, which helps in strengthening baby's bones and muscles and is proven safe and effective for better overall physical growth of babies. She even uses Dabur Gripe Water, which guards the baby against common stomach problems like afara, aitten, indigestion and acidity. I can clearly see her growth.
I myself use Dabur Badam Tail, which helps in making my skin soft & glowing and also makes hair strong & healthy.
Why Dabur? Because for the past 125 years, they have been dedicated to provide nature-based solutions for a healthy and holistic lifestyle.
Ayurveda believes, by supporting the body, one can enjoy living a balanced and harmonious life. It targets to cure the holistic health of a person, instead of treating just the physical body of a person. Ayurveda believes in healing from within.
Because as they say: Health is Wealth.
