With the onset of summer, and the raised temperature, it is but normal that many of us bring about small changes in diet and routine. The warm clothes are replaced by light coloured cotton clothings, some start intake of cold drinks or cold water over warm sips of water, tea, coffee and/or soups, fresh fruits, juices and etc,etc… One more inclusion or advise which is very common, ‘Have a bowl of curd or curd rice- to keep cool’. How true and appropriate is this? Now lets see what Ayurveda says about curd – “।। अम्लपाकरसं ग्राहि गुरुष्णं दधि वातजित्।। मेदःशुक्रबलश्र्लेष्मपित्तरक्ताग्निशोफक्रृत् । रोचिष्णु शस्तमरुचौ शीतके विषमज्वरे।। पीनसे मूत्रकृच्छ्रे च रूक्षं तु ग्रहणीगदे। नैवाद्यान्निशि नैवोष्णं वसन्तोष्णशरत्सु न।। नामुद्गसूपं नाक्षौद्रं तन्नाघृतसितोपलम्। न चानामलकं नापि नित्यं नो मन्दमन्यथा।। ज्वरासृक् पित्त वीसर्पकुष्ठपाण्डुभ्रमप्रदम्। “वा.सू.५ Curd is sour in taste and vipaak (rasa dominant after digestion), heavy to digest, contrary to everyone’s belief it is hot in potency, pacifies vata, but increases kapha and pitta dosha. Intake of curd builds up excess of meda dhatu (fats), increases rakta dhatu, shukra dhatu (sperm count), strength, kindles digestive fire and develops or stimulates swelling if any. Curd is also beneficial in conditions like anorexia, as it stimulates taste buds. In conditions like running nose

Health as per Ayurveda means equilibrium of all the three doshas, seven dhatus, three mala, and Agni. To maintain this equilibrium Ayurveda explains Dinacharya (Daily regimen) & Rutucharya (Seasonal regimen), which includes various diet, exercise, dressing, creating favorable, soothing and comfortable surroundings as per the individuals prakriti and seasonal conditions. Here in this article we shall focus our details on Diet in Winter season (Hemant & Shishir rutu). Ayurveda has mentioned in details interesting foods for the season. Winter season is governed by Vayu mahabhoot, with dominance of vata and Kapha dosha. The dry and cold properties of the season, results in the increased demand of warmth and nourishment by the body. Winter is the best period of the year to replenish and restore body’s powerhouse.

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) manifests in childhood with symptoms of hyperactivity, impulsivity, and/or inattention. In addition, there are other secondary symptoms associated with ADHD such as insomnia, learning disabilities, and delayed language development. The symptoms affect cognitive, academic, behavioural, emotional and social functioning. ADHD is found to be more common in boys than girls. It often continues into adolescence and adulthood. If left untreated, it leaves millions of children and adults incapacitated causing a lifetime of frustrated dreams and emotional pain. The most commonly prescribed modern medications are central nervous system stimulants combined with counselling and cognitive behavioural interventions. The role of dopamine and nor-epinephrine regulation in patients with ADHD is considered the most important in treatment. The symptoms associated with ADHD cease only for the time these medications are active within the body. When the medication wears off, the symptoms return. A patient taking these medications needs to continue taking them throughout his/her life. There are many potential side effects of stimulants, including: decreased appetite, poor growth, dizziness, insomnia/

In the previous article we learnt about Post natal mother care in initial days, in this article we shall know in detail about the mother care during rest of the sutika period. As mentioned earlier sutika phase lasts for 6 wks after delivery, it is this time where the uterine muscles starts to regain its previous size and shape, which is equally important considering the female health and cosmetic aspect. The Sutika Paricharya is essential for : Regaining previous figure and vigour Generation of adequate breast milk for the baby Prevention of future degeneration of body tissues. By the end of first week, the newborn mother settles down with her chores of handling the baby, changing diapers, breast-feeding, self care, and diet. She also regains her emotional and hormonal balance. Now onwards the sutika paricharya changes majorly in terms of diet and medicines. Oil massage, belly binding and yoni dhoopan are to be continued till the end of 6wks or sutika kaal. Diet in Sutika Kaal : Mother can start her day early with Gum laddoo/ Garden cress

The transformation of a female, from a woman to Mother is the happiest lifetime event, but this happiness is gained only after undergoing tremendous physical exertion during labor; so old people used to term,’labor‘ as women’s rebirth. The woman becomes extremely debilitated physically and mentally, after the delivery. In addition she now has an extra responsibility of feeding and taking care of her baby, which is possible only if she is fit and strong. It is therefore very important to take utmost care of the newborn mother as well. The mother who has just given birth to a baby is termed as ‘Sutika’ in Ayurveda, and the care is termed as ‘Sutika Paricharya’. Sutika phase lasts for 6 weeks, which means she should take the much needed rest, care, nutritious diet at least for 6 weeks and let her body regain all the lost energy and bring the imbalanced doshas to normalcy.During this period, the expanded uterus shrinks back to normal position. Ligaments, muscles and tendons associated with uterus starts gaining back the lost power. Mother
