Cold Fever Stomach Illness in Children Safe Sure Remedies

In Health on November 23, 2014 at 07:55

I have four grand children from 90 days to six years .

 

I have found that even for a slight indisposition of the children, they tend to rush immediately to Pediatrician  and the funniest part is that the child has to get an appointment, some time after seven or eight hours of the illness being reported,

 

The problem with infants , children is that some times the child,infant can not be left unattended for illness for such long periods, especially if they have high fever or diarrhea.

Child with Cold.

 

Immediate action has to be taken.

 

The Allopathy system treats symptoms and most of the medicines, including the anti biotics have guaranteed side effects, while the cure is not assured.

 

For cough, medicine is prescribed to  suppress cough and anti biotics which are heavy are prescribed.

 

While the former gives one feeling of the illness is cured, the latter leaves problems, at least in respect of bowel movements.

 

Sere the Siddha medicine solves the problem.

 

These medicines do not have any side effects , they  are natural foods and are available at  Indian Homes.

 

For Colic(Stomach ache), Constipation.

 

Give a cup of warm milk before bedtime with one teaspoon of ghee added to it.

Provide a natural laxative foods such as soaked raisins or dates, honey, bran, sesame seeds, mango, papaya, grapes, and fresh figs.

Inculcate proper eating habits and food combining when possible, sufficient water intake, high quality oils, and providing plenty of high fiber foods can be helpful in the prevention of constipation.

In the case of infants, the mother can apply a small amount of castor oil to her nipple before breastfeeding.

For babies with intestinal colic, mix equal parts of Cumin, Fennel, and Coriander powder and add 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of this mixture to a cup of hot water, let it steep for 15 to 20 minutes, then strain well.

The mother can also drink it to reduce the qualities of vata in her breast milk.

In the case of infants, it is useful to administer the tea with a baby medicine dropper, available in most baby supply sections, and dilute it a little, if needed, to make it more palatable

 

For Colds, Fever.

Cold.

Yashtimadhu (Licorice root) and a little raw honey it helps liquefy and expectorate phlegm.

 

Make a Paste of the root, about half a teaspoon, ix it with Honey and give the child, till the cough subsides.

 

Or take a Nutmeg, Jathikkai, make a paste, small quantity of paste, by rubbing it out with a little quantity of water.apply this mixture on both the sides of the nose.

 

Running nose will stop immediately.

 

For chest congestion or restricted breathing.

Warm  sesame oil, or ghee with a pinch of rock or black salt, can be massaged onto the chest followed by a eucalyptus steam inhalation. Tulsi (Holy basil) works wonders for soothing coughs, decongesting the lungs and sinuses, as well as lowering a fever by promoting sweating. Tulsi tea can be prepared by adding1 teaspoon of Tulsi powder to 1 cup of hot water. This can also be given before bedtime to break a fever when nothing else works.

 

Fever.

A remarkable home remedy for lowering fever consists in rubbing fresh onion juice to the child’s navel region while applying a cool cloth to the forehead to protect the brain.

 

One can apply a paste made of turmeric powder and war gingelly oil on the forehead.

 

For Rashes,including Diaper rashes.

 

One of the best remedies for this is to add 1 to 2 teaspoons of Kumari (Aloe vera) juice into the baby’s drinking water.

 

For Deworming and clearing Parasites.

 

A simple household remedy for worms like thread, pin, and round worms, is to take 3 to 5 drops of fresh onion juice diluted in one teaspoon of water 3 times daily.

 

Two or three tender leaves of Neem tree may be made and given to the child, either directly or with warm water.

In Hinduism on September 14, 2014 at 09:38

I remember ,as a child, when I had high fever,my father doing Indrakshi Japa with Vibhuth, Bhasma and applying it to my forehead.

 

It produced results.

 

Those were the days when antibiotics were sparingly used, the Cure it all was penicillin.

 

That was prescribed for only, in the doctor’s opinion, for serious illnesses.

 

Indrakshi Mantra is by Lord Narayana.

 

This will cure all diseases and daily chanting of this will ensure a disease free Life.

Infant Infections Death Balarishta Karuka Homa

In Health, Hinduism on September 1, 2014 at 11:01

Infants upto the age of five years suffer from a lot of unspecified infections, diseases,disorders and many die.

 

Most of the medicines prescribed for Infants are only supportive in nature and a cure.

 

 

And modern Medicine has a name if the reason for the disease is not known.

 

Allergy!

 

The medicine that is prescribed for Allergies are some times allergic themselves!..

 

When I was young I used to fall sick frequently and medicines were of no avail.

 

I heard from my parents that they used to perform Ayush Homa, on the day of my birth star , till my fifth year.

 

I have been cured of the frequent diseases, my parents used to say.

 

As an aside, Hindus do not celebrate Birth days,possibly because one year gone is that much nearer to death!

 

However Sastras say that Ayush Homa is to be performed for the child till it completes five years.

 

This is prevent Infant Mortality  and to ward of infections and unknown diseases.

 

There is also Balarishta.

 

Balarishta is the Sanskrit word that means infant mortality, but astrologically it actually indicates a Dosha, a misfortune more in terms of ill-health during infancy and childhood than of any other kind of adversity that can strike a person at that age. Therefore, it is an affliction in the Natal Chart or Query Chart, an ava-yoga (evil yoga), which need not necessarily indicate early death, for death occurs only if the planetary infliction is severe and there are no other yogas indicating a longer term of life counter – acting Balarishta Dosha.[2] In Astrology the most difficult task is the determination of one’s age i.e. span of life, time of death and Balarishta.

 

Whether one believes in Astrology or not, every one wants the Infant to be healthy and safe from Diseases.

 

One does not lose anything by performing certain Poojas to ward off this..

 

Karuka(Cyndon dactylon),அருகம்புல் Homa may be performed at Guruvayoor Krishna temple.

In Hinduism on April 28, 2014 at 09:15

For a safe and easy delivery for pregnant Mothers , I am providing some mantras.

Thayumanaavr Temple

RockFort Temple,Tiruchi

 

In addition to this, one may vow to offer a bunch of Raw Bananas (Vaazhaith Thaar) to Thaayumanavar Swamy at Tiruchirapalli.

 

This vow may be fulfilled after Delivery by carrying the Vazzhaith Thaar in person up the steps and offer to the Lord Thaayumaanavar.

 

Thayumanavar

Thayumanaavr

 

Hiring of people to carry this, is not recommended.

 

One may also  pray to Karbharakshambigai at Thirukkarukavor for safe delivery( one may pray here for begetting a child), collect the oil they provide and

apply it on the stomach when the Labor starts.

 

Mantra for Easy Delivery

Mathru boodeswaro devo
Bakthanaa mishta thayaka
Sukanthi kunthala naavaha
Suka Prasava Mrichchathuhu.

Hima vathyuththarey parthavey
Surathaa nama yakshini
Tasyaha smarana mathrena
Visalya karpini paveth.

Hey sankara smarahara
Bramahathathi natha
Mannatha samba sasisooda
Harathri soolin
Sambo sukaprasavakrutha
Pavame thayalo
Shri mathrubootha
Siva balayamam namasthey.

Pray Lord Thayumanavar at Tiruchirapalli rockfort that you will be visiting his temple with the kid and do an abishek upon the fulfillment of your prayer and ask the pregnant lady to chant the following mantra.


It is advisable to recite this mantra 11 times a day daily after bath.


On Monday recite this mantra 108 times either between 6-7 am,1-2 pm 0r between 8-9 pm especially during the hora of moon. 

 

The Mantra has to be recited during the Chandra Horai, Horai of the Moon.

 

This information is available in the Panchanga.

 

Or read my post,” How to find Horai’

 

Location: Tiruchirappalli 
(Chola Naadu -South of Kaveri)
ShivaTaayumaanavar, Matrubhuteswarar
AmbalMattuvaarkuzhali, Sugandha Kundalambika 
Theertham: Kaveri 
Patikam : Sambandar, Appar
Travel Base: Tiruchirappalli.

Lord Shiva is reported to have attended the Labor of His Devotee and ensured safe delivery.

 

Shiva was worshipped by the demon ruler Tirisiran, hence Tiruchirappalli, Tirisirapuram etc. Also, since the three peaks here on this hill are occupied by Shiva, Parvati and Vinayaka, the name Tri-Shikharam or Tirisirapuram came into being. Legend has it that Shiva in the guise of a woman (mother) attended to the call of a devotee in labor, hence Matrubhuteswarar.

Tiruchirappalli  is hailed as Dakshina Kailasam, as the hill is said to be 1 of the 3 pieces that flew off the Himalayas. in a fierce tussle between Adi Seshan the mythical snake and the Wind God Vayu. The other two are Triconamalee & Sree Kalahasti.

The Temple: This is a fascinating rock cut temple with several inscriptions from the Pallava and Imperial Chola period. This shrine houses Kangaala Moorthy, one of the 64 manifestations of Shiva. The approach to the temple is through a flight of covered stairs. Towards the end of the climb, the Tayumanavar temple is towards the West, and theUchipillayar temple – East.

There is a rock cut Pallava temple – Lalitankura Pallaveswaram in this hill temple complex. with several inscriptions here attributed to Mahendravarma Pallavan. In addition the Cholas, the Vijayanagar rulers and the Nayaks of Madurai have made extensive contributions here. The  two storeyed Taayumaanavar temple, built on (in) a hill is a masterpiece of construction. The Chittira Mandapam houses a granite chain with nine loops.

Festivals: Six worship services are offered each day here. This well endowed temple celebrates the annual Bhrammotsavam in Chittirai. Aadi Pooram and the float festival in Panguni are also of significance here.
