Ayurveda and Garbha sanskar (prenatal education)



Ancient Indian medicine, i.e. Ayurveda puts emphasis on the spiritual, mental and physical preparation of the expecting mother to give birth to a healthy child. In Ayurveda, this theory is described as ‘supraja Janan’ or EU-maternity. It basically means preparing the couple in planning their pregnancy at least three months prior to the baby conception.

Pregnancy should be by choice and not by chance. The planning should firstly begin with panda shuddhi which means purification of gametes (sperm and ovum).

One should always keep in mind if the couple is not mentally fit and stable even though they are being physically healthy cannot give birth to a healthy child.

The mental calmness and firmness of mind is very much related to one’s eating habits and depends on many other factors of lifestyle. For giving birth to a healthy child, it is important to stay away from spicy food items and addictive substances during pregnancy period.

garbha sanskar

Universally it has been proven that the fetus is not just a mindless mass of flesh, but it responds and capable of understanding, receiving information from outside forces. The fetus is an evolving human being that has got full rights to receive optimistic and inspiring feedback or garbha sanskar.

Daily practices of garbha sanskar which are to be given during pregnancy period to the child in the womb are clearly prescribed in the Ayurveda. Not just daily diet taken by expecting mother is mentioned, but routine body care, yoga techniques as well as reading material and instructions are available in Ayurveda. Various subjects of discussion are written along with music and mantras that can be listened to during pregnancy period.


Development of parent-fetus bonding:

Do you know that feelings and thoughts in mind of parents affect babies in the womb on a large level. Until any thought is expressed verbally, it remains in an unexpressed form in mind. At this time, its wavelength is shortest and it has got maximum energy at this level. Selfless and unspoken thoughts bear and transfer maximum sanskar on the fetus.


Effect of music:

Scientifically, it has been proven that the fetus responds to music from 7th months of pregnancy. You would be glad to know that a foetus of 7th month starts hearing from mother’s womb and from the nearby surroundings and responds to them as well. Heartbeat of mother is the first sound the child hears when in a womb because it is the most nearest sound for the baby. This is the reason why a crying child clams down when her mother holds her close to her heart. It is believed that the child in the womb gets energy for the development of his mind and body when an expecting mother listens to the special music. You would be surprised to know that listening to sound of veena (an Indian musical instrument which is held by goddess Saraswati) and flute along with Samveda mantras are very helpful in giving birth to the healthy child at the time of childbirth. Various cassettes and CD’s like ‘Garbha Sangeet’, Garbha Sanskaar: Blessings for the new arrival” are published and can be easily brought by pregnant women from markets.


Lifestyle tips for the pregnant women:

According to Ayurveda, an expecting mother should stay away from movies depicting scenes of violence, horror and murder. This is because these kinds of stuffs can produce a negative effect on the child’s character. Also, expecting mother should live in a company of those people who throw positive influence over her. She can listen to soft music, read positive and self-inspiring books, view beautiful works of art, develop only constructive frame of mind with positive thoughts in her mind and last but not the least contemplate pleasant landscapes.

Herbal medications:

In Ayurveda, two types of ghees are recommended for mother-to-be. The name of first medicated ghee is ‘kalyanak ghrita’ to be given during 4th, 5th months of pregnancy on daily basis. One tsp of this ghee is widely given to expecting mothers, especially in southern states like Kerala in India. The herbal preparation ‘kalyanak ghrita’ is considered very effective in the development of the mental faculties of a growing fetus. Also, it is very beneficial for development of all body systems in fetal baby. ‘Kalyanak ghrita’ when taken regularly helps in fighting anemia in the mother as well as prevents any kind of congenital abnormalities. Another ghee is ‘Thanka three great’ which is to be taken during the last month of pregnancy i.e. 7th, 8th and 9th months of pregnancy. Regular intake of this ghee promotes complete developments in the fetal body and known to bring good fortunes to the newborn child. It also aids in the full term normal delivery. Both these ghee has got cow’s ghee as their base during their preparation.

IT IS IMPORTANT TO TAKE AN EXPERT ADVICE FOR GARBHA SANSKAR.

Yes, you can take this tablet in 3 months pregnancy. It is calcium with vitamin D supplements and absolutely safe in pregnancy. Take folic acid till 14 weeks of pregnancy and then after that, you can ask your gynaecologist to shift you to iron tablets which contain 0.5 mg of folic acid. Then you can stop folic acid tablets.

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
I am 22 yrs old. I am suffering from piles and irregular periods. What should I do?
Hello. Have you got yourself examined for diagnosis for piles? For piles: Are they bleeding or non-bleeding? What is the colour of the blood? Is blood mixed with stools or fresh bleeding immediately after the motions? Any pain in them? For menses: What kind of irregularity is there? Since how long it's been there? Do you also have any other medical condition with it? Any associated symptoms? Tell me about yourself, your nature, desires, aversions, thermal reaction, etc. Answer all the above questions for selecting right medicine for you. Meantime, take Schwabe's Aesculus Pentarkan/ thrice daily (for piles) and for a month. Avoid any spicy food. Go for a walk as sitting at one place or immobility can aggravate the condition. Increase intake of fibrous food like green vegetables, fruits, salad, wheat bran, beans, berries, whole grains, nuts, seeds, etc. There after, revert me back.

Sometimes excessive exercises, incompatible dietary habits also changes the menstrual cycle. Please contact for further consultation Take care.

Yes hypothyroid patients tend to have dryness and itichy skin, you can use a water based lubricant during sexual intercourse. Moreover your diabetic too, so that also leads to dryness in the skin tone.

MBBS; M.S.

There must be more foreplay specially clitorial. Use some lubricants like k y jelly. Partner should pay more attention to her specially during intercourse. He may prolong the process by doing some withdrawal of penis during intercourse.

Travel Sickness - 6 Homeopathy Medicines That Will Help You

Travel Sickness - 6 Homeopathy Medicines That Will Help You

What is motion sickness?

Motion sickness (travel sickness, car sickness) is a general sense of not feeling well, nausea, vomiting, headache, and sweating that is caused by repeated motion. It develops when the inner ear, the eyes, and other areas of the body that detect motion send conflicting messages to the brain. Any type of transportation can cause motion sickness.

Children are more susceptible to motion sickness than adults. About half of children between the ages of 4 and 10 experience dizziness and nausea when travelling by car, airplane or boat. Girls tend to be more susceptible than boys.

What are the symptoms of motion sickness?

The most common signs and symptoms of motion sickness include:

  1. Nausea
  2. Increased salivation
  3. Vomiting
  4. Pale skin
  5. Perspiration
  6. Dizziness
  7. Headache

Homeopathy for Motion Sickness

In most cases treatment with homoeopathic drugs is necessary and in some cases,  it is the only method of treatment as conventional treatment cannot offer a cure always. Merely treating Motion sickness on symptomatology basis has failed to give permanent relief. So a holistic approach considering the individualistic treatment to provide an improved understanding of the patient’s situation and to make it easier and possible to avoid recurrences in the future has to be kept in mind in treating such diseases.

In the context of travel, homoeopaths have some valid conclusions, regarding the holistic and individualistic approach to motion sickness. Homoeopathy takes the set of most distinct, individual symptoms into account, which are truly characteristic of the patient forming the basis of prescription which eventually leads to cure. It is hoped that useful information will be gained both on the entity of motion sickness, as well as the homoeopathic approach to its management.

Travel sickness is enough to ruin a perfect getaway, but thankfully homeopathic remedies prove to be very effective and are perfect to carry when travelling. Some of the common homeopathic remedies which can be used as companions when travelling are:

  1. Aconite: This is used when one faces excessive restlessness and fear along with high heat and an urge to cool down with cold drinks.
  2. Borax: Taken when symptoms arise due to a downward movement like during turbulence or sudden dipping of the plane. This sudden movement causes anxiety, fidgeting, distress and confusion. Also, helpful in people who are scared of the dip of the plane during landing.
  3. Cocculus: This can be taken when a person experiences symptoms of nausea, salivation, dizziness and wants to lie down in order to prevent vomiting. If the sight and smell of food makes a person unwell they can also take this medicine.
  4. Nux Vomica: This is used when a person feels nausea, syncope and a feeling of faintness along with being sensitive to even slight movements. In this the person is usually irritable. Other symptoms which are seen in this are constipation or indigestion and a splitting or severe headache.
  5. Petroleum: Used when  person experiences nausea, headache, dizziness, cold sweat, vomiting, extreme hunger or eating disorder along with a feeling of being confused and angry. Usually this condition is worsened by nausea.
  6. Tabacum: This is indicated when people experience extreme motion sickness, to the extent of being pale and a saliva filled mouth. These people might suffer from the severest form of palpitations and nausea. Closing the eyes and breathing fresh and cold air helps to relieve the symptoms.

These are just a few of the commonly used Homeopathic remedies and are mentioned only to create awareness about the effectiveness of Homeopathic medicines in motion sickness. It is not advisable to resort to self-medication for any disease.
