Ayurvedic medicine has advised step by step care of foetus via 'Garbhsanskar aushadhi.'
There are complete yogas (combos of medicine) dedicated to all round development of foetus by Ayurveda. As a general tonic every pregnant lady must take Sitopaladi + Prawal Pishti as per dose suggested by Vaidya/Ayurved doctor, to give strength to body and mind and to bring comparatively fairer skin to developing child. Efforts should be done to make Sitopaladi Chooran at home by buying original high quality Banslochan which is an important ingradient of Sitopaladi. Still need be Garbhchintamani Ras and Phalkalyan ghrit are another important tonics for child in the womb. Mother takes these harmless herbomineral 'yogas' for lifetime achievement of the child who becomes strong, beautiful and intelligent. Pl get advise from any ayurveda doctor before starting it.
My daughter of age 1.6 years got a pimple type on her nose from which pus and blood is coming out and also the entire area around the nose and eyes got swelling using antibiotic oxipod but day by day swelling increasing today is 7th day. I am worried whether it is getting cured or I have to consult any other doctor again.
My son is 2 years 3 month old. He had hip dislocation due to which he was in plaster for 2.5 months (in age of 2 years) and now recovering. His language skills seems to be poor limited to 25 words currently. He likes to stare moving object like fan. Do you see any issue?
During the 1st month of age, I fed my baby every 2 hrs in a day. She is in 2nd month now. Do I continue feeding like this? or what should be the frequency of feeding?
My daughter is 2 year 4 months old. She has normal diet from family pot and not baby food now. My concern is that she does not want to brush her teeth. I try brushing her teeth while I brush mine, I also try rubbing her teeth with my index finger applying toothpaste to it, etc. Brushing her teeth every morning is a big challenge for me. Please suggest on how do I convince her to brush her teeth.
Thalassemia is a type of a disease, resulting in the abnormal production of hemoglobin in the blood. Hemoglobin stimulates oxygen circulation all over the body. Therefore, a dip in the hemoglobin count can lead to anemia, a disease inducing weakness as well as fatigue. Acute anemia can take a toll on the organs and ultimately cause death.
Severe thalassemia in children yields symptoms, such as dark urine, abdominal swelling, slow growth, jaundice, a pale appearance and deformed skull bones. Diarrhea, frequent fevers and eating disorders are also common.
- Blood transfusions: Regular blood transfusion is the only treatment needed for beta thalassemia aiming to keep sufficient Hb level to avoid long-term complications, though bone marrow transplant is radical cure for the disease.
- Iron chelation therapy: The hemoglobin in the red blood cells is rich in iron-protein that gets deposited in the blood with regular blood transfusion. This condition is known as iron overload as it damages heart, liver and various parts of the body. Iron chelation therapy is used to prevent this damage as it helps to remove the excess iron from the body. Deferoxamine and Deferasirox are two such medicines used for this therapy.
- Folic acid supplements: Folic acid being a B vitamin produces healthy red blood cells and is therefore recommended as a substitute for the above procedures.
- Transplant of blood and marrow stem cell: A blood and a marrow (a substance within the cavities of bones where blood cells are produced) transplant replaces the faulty stem cells with healthy ones contributed by a donor.
