Traditional Knowledge, Natural Growth- Ayurvedic Vs Chemically processed/synthetic products, and its role in a baby's early growth & development

"Health is wealth" and everyone wants to live healthy. We want the best for ourselves as well as our family especially our children. Since time immemorial, Ayurveda has been a boon to living a healthy and a happy life.

Ayurveda is the world’s oldest known medical science, which originated in India over 5,000 years ago. In Sanskrit, Ayur means “longevity” or “life” and veda means “science”The main source of this ancient knowledge is the Vedas or the divine books of knowledge propounded by spiritual rishis (sages) in India.

Ayurveda is not simply a healthcare system, but a form of lifestyle adopted to maintain perfect balance and harmony within the human existence. According to Ayurveda, living in harmony with nature and according to natural principles ensures complete physical health and peace of mind. However, modern life often violates the principles of natural living. We rush from one mundane task to the next while being bombarded with advertising and constant noise, and absorbing pollution through the air and water. No wonder we are inviting disease rather than confronting it.

Ayurveda thus offers a unique blend of science and philosophy that balances the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual components necessary for holistic health without the danger of side effects incurred due to processing or artificial additions to the curative herbs unlike the modern day chemically processed products that have become a quick fix to every ailment that we have. It has become a habit among people,
"Anything goes wrong, take a pill!"

Although, these artificially prepared products provide a quick fix but they don't treat the disease completely, only suppressing it till the next time while natural products help completely eradicate the ailment from its roots while also providing a base for prevention.

Children till the age of 5 are very sensitive and demand extra attention because their natural defenses are weak and still developing. 

As Deepak Chopra says in his new book ,What are you hungry for?, "Favor fresh, real food. You can be assured that you are offering your body anti- inflammatory nutrition." 

Same is the case with choosing the right oil to massage your baby's body because oil is like food to the skin and the body and provides it nourishment, thus, aiding growth.

As we all know, using natural things is the best because they are without any side effects and anything in its pure form contains all its benefits in the highest degree just as fresh fruits have higher benefits than their juice which loses all the fiber and some quality nutrients along the way. 

In order to give the best to our children, it is imperative that we choose the right product. Among the hundreds of products both Ayurvedic and synthetic, the consumer is often confused and ends up choosing something that is not suitable to their needs.

Now that there is impurity in everything and no scruples in selling products that do not meet their advertised values, a tried and tested product is what is needed to ensure that we do the best for our child. Dabur products come into picture here. Dabur is the time tested brand that has earned the trust of people and it's products deliver what they advertise. It is one brand that stands out and has been offering quality products from the last 125 years. It offers products that contain natural ingredients without any artificial preservatives in them. Products like Dabur Chyawanprash, Dabur Lal Tail, Dabur Janma Ghunti, Dabur Gripe water, Dabur Rogan Badam Shirin, Dabur Honey, Dabur Triphala Churna etc. have been a part of our lives and I still remember my grandmother using only Dabur products. 

I, myself, use Dabur Chyawanprash, Dabur Rogan Badam Shirin, Dabur Lavarnabhaskar Chaurna and Dabur Honey and can safely say that these products have greatly helped me in achieving and maintaining my good health. :)

Dabur not only provides products for adults but also has a range of products for kids like Dabur Lal Tail, Dabur Janma Ghunti, Dabur Gripe water etc. Among these, Dabur Lal Tail holds a special place in my memories of my happy childhood.

Dabur Lal Tail which is a baby massage oil contains Ayurvedic ingredients which have proven health benefits like Till Tail, Ratanjyot, Shankha Pushpi, Camphor and Urad.

1) Till Tail or Sesame Oil improves growth and post-massage sleep, 
2) Ratanjyot protects against skin infection, 
3) Shankha Pushpi cures general weakness, 
4) Camphor improves blood circulation 
5) Urad nourishes muscles & bones

This oil has been like a tradition in my family where a new mother is instructed and advised to use Dabur Lal Tail to massage their baby. I am told that my grandmother used this oil as the massage oil for all her children and then my mother used to massage me and my brother with it. I have even seen my relatives and neighbors using this oil for their babies. :)

I still remember those cold mornings when my mother used to massage my brother's body with Dabur Lal Tail and lay him in the sun after that while my brother seemed relaxed and very happy playing with his legs and sucking his thumb all the time. Those warmth and happiness inducing massage sessions are a happy memory for me, one I would like to replicate when I have my own kids. :)

According to the tests performed under stringent guidelines, Dabur Lal Tail has been proved to benefit children. In the research, it was clearly proven that babies who were massaged daily with Dabur Lal Tail in comparison with no massage experienced 2 times faster increase in weight and heightIts massage helps in strengthening baby's bones and muscles and is proven safe and effective for better overall physical growth of babies.

Clinical Research further proved the positive effects of Dabur Lal Tail massage in inducing better sleeping pattern in Neonates and Infants, which is very important for a baby’s development. Further, a massage is also a way in which a mother bonds to her child. The baby recognizes and feels safe in the hands of his mother, thus, forming a trust that is cemented for a lifetime.

So in short, the benefits of Dabur Lal Tail massage are:

1) 2 times faster increase in weight and height.

2) Better sleeping pattern in Neonates and Infants.

3) Proven safe and effective for better overall physical growth of babies.

4) Strengthens baby's bones and muscles.

5) All natural with no side effects and artificial impurities.

6) A great way to know and bond with your child. :)

7) Makes the kid more active and happy.

The last few years have seen people getting disillusioned to synthetic products and a sudden rise in the usage of natural products.

 As my grandmother used to say, 

"Be natural and you will be happy" and I totally agree with her.

Give your child the best care that he deserves by embracing nature and natural products. Massage you child with Dabur Lal Tail and see you child grow healthy and happy. :)
