In this Episode we Discuss:

The two most important factors for baby are bath and abhyanga (oil massage), daily.

  • Preventing Disease - With Abhyanga we can satisfy vata very easily. There are many vata diseases, much more than the other doshas. So we pacify vata from the childhood, we can prevent so many diseases.
  • Detoxifies - That is why it is important to bathe the baby after, to wash off the toxins the massage “pulled out” via lipophilic action.
  • Improves muscle and bone growth.
  • Sramapaha” - reduces exertion.
  • Improves sleep - by pacifying the nervous system.
  • Abhyanga is like exercise to a baby.
  • Sesame Oil - Improves calcium levels, bone and hair growth.
  • Regimen - After delivery give massage every day except for next 11 days.
  • Head is the most important area to massage - Strengthens the skull, prevents headaches and enhances sensory health.
  • Oils to use for massage - Ideally medicated oils, otherwise cold-pressed extra-virgin coconut oil, cold-pressed extra-virgin olive oil. Beware with sesame oil as it may cause a skin reaction or allergy depending on the baby.

Other methods of Ayurvedic Immunisation: (12:55)

  1. Balance mum’s physiology - post-natal herbs, garlic, ghee, ojas increasing foods. Just giving baby-abhyanga will increase oxytocin in the mother. Ensure proper breastfeeding.
  2. Herbs for baby - swarna prasa, shiva drops, pusya drops, swasakastank yog. (15:02)
  3. 40 days of intimacy between mum and baby.
  4. Diet - timely food, proper food introduction.
  5. Sattvic (pure) environment in the home.
  6. Bath - give after abhyanga. Lukewarm baths daily.
