How ayurveda helps in child development?

Learning ability, learning imbalances, ADHD , harnessing nature’s intelligence in food At school - the Ayurvedic view of learning ability Children starting back at school are ready for fresh achievement and enjoyment. Or are they? School is a major part of a child’s life, so how can parents make sure their children are well prepared to get maximum enjoyment and benefit from the hours they spend there? One way is to enhance learning ability by applying the knowledge of Ayurveda. Ayurveda describe three aspects of mental ability: dhi (acquisition or learning), dhriti, (retention), and smriti (recall ability). When these three mental functions are balanced, a child s mind is quick and bright. When not balanced, either individually or in their coordination with each another, learning difficulties can occur. Learning disorders and their effects—ADHD, socialising and self-esteem Children with learning difficulties often feel like failures at school, which can lead to frustration , low self-esteem and related behavioural problems. There is already concern about a range of problem behaviours associated with poor attention span . These may include impulsiveness, restlessness and hyperactivity , as well as inattentiveness. Such behaviours often prevent children from learning and socialising well and are called ADHD or hyperkinetic disorder. Conventional medicine considers the causes to be the child’s temperament, heredity, brain injuries at or before birth, family stress and educational difficulties, and recommends supplements such as Omega 3 fish oils. Ayurveda approaches this problem from a different perspective and offers a range of procedures to improve mental functioning. ‘Intelligence’ in food—Diet is most important Ayurveda points out that digestive impurities can obstruct the channels of communication between the three mental functions of acquisition, attention and recall and therefore gives prime importance to diet.

You're all crammed into the car for the family holiday. You’ve been on the road a while and now your children are reacting to the long drive. Red-haired Amanda keeps saying, "I'm hot!" and "I'm hungry. When do we eat?" She is trying to get the others to play car games, which she usually wins. Thin, wiry Jenny is talking a mile a minute, wound up from the travel and anxious to get there. Simon, who is prone to gaining weight, congenially listens to his sisters and then drifts off to sleep. As every parent knows, no two children are alike. Just as one child may have blond hair and another dark, psychological and physical needs can also vary widely from child to child. Once you understand about your child's Ayurveda mind-body type - his or her basic make-up - you know how to help. The health and creativity of the child is based on how much good feeling, how much emotional, physiological, and psychological nourishment he or she receives from the parents. Your Child’s Ayurveda mind-body type Th

My 15month old granddaughter has had diaper rash and a uti for 5 months. Her parents are frantic and her pedi-dr has prescribed creams and powders, taken the child completely off fruit, done the cultures, prescribed antibiotics, and I don t know what else. The child can t sleep, she doesn t eat very much. She is usually such a happy baby but this morning, she started screaming again when she urinated. The last few nights, she has been unable to sleep in her crib. Some say she will grow out of this, but my daughter is going crazy and I see why. How long will Dr.s let something like this go before the child develops kidney problems?

Hello, My problem is that I feel distracted, and I cannot focus on one thing, especially studying even though I used to study 5 hours a day. Sometimes, even though there is nothing in my mind, I feel there is like a wall that keeps me from focusing studying. I was diagnosed with ADD last year. I also was diagnosed with depression and anxiety . I started by taking Adderall , Klonopin , and a medication for anxiety that causes sleepiness. I felt much better, and I could concntrate easily at that time. However, I started sleeping 14 hours a day, so my psychiatrist stopped both Adderall and decreased the dosage ofthe other medication that I don t know its name. She then gave me Concerta and abilify in addition to Klonopin. I felt as good as I was, and could easily concentrate. However, the same problem with sleeping came again. At that time, she stopped the medication that I don t remember its name and Concerta. She gave me wellbutrin and strattera . She gave me a low dose of strattera, and was planning to increase it later. After a month, I moved to a new city, and I told my psychiatrist that since I started using strattera, I didn t feel any improvement, so she stopped it. Since that time, about six month ago, my new psychiatrist has changed the dosage of each medication except wellbutrin. She said that I might not have ADD, but anxiety and depression are causing it, so she haven t gave me any ADD medication. She also says that medications conflict with each other. My concentration has not improved since that time, and sometimes, it decreased. I actually think that what I have is ADD and it makes me worried becuase I cannot study. I feel like I don t have anxiety or depression. How can I know if I have ADD or not? Do I need to find a new psychiatrist ? since my current psychiatrist has not helped me for 6 months. Please, help me. I am having hard time studying, and I am worried about my future. Thanks
