It gives me immence pleasure in introducing this booklet related to care of neonates and children authored by experienced specialist of Ayurveda. The booklet envisages elaborate care during labour, new born care immediately after birth as well as late care during later childhood period. Language of the booklet is quite simple and easy to under stand. Remedies and methods can be practiced at home easily without the help of physician. Actually, these are traditional home remedies prescribed by elderly women however due to changed Emily system and easy availability of modern systems of medicine, use of home remedies has been restricted to old and elderly women and eventually ladies of today have been deprived of the treasures of knowledge. Under the circumstances masses earnestly need the knowledge of the well practiced and harmless medicaments. The present documentation of those practices which are required to be practiced for the care and growth and development of neonates as well as children, is a welcome step. The booklet shall be of great value, not only for young mothers but common public shall also be benefited.
"Health for all by 2000 A.D." is a national goal. Contributions of Indian system of medicine are also needed to achieve the goal. Indian system of medicine has the capacity to play effective role. Ayurveda is such a system of medicine which is not a method of treatment only but rather the philosophy of life. It is specificity of Ayurveda that it stresses upon more on preventive and promotive methods of health care rather than the curative procedures. Due to this reason, the treatment advocated in Ayurvedic system of medicine has been preserved in form of folk care medicine/home remedies in the masses. Ayurveda, in the present times, can play a vital role in health and family welfare programmes The recipes provided in the booklet shall prove as economical, safe and easily available effective method of treatment especially in the field of maternity and child health promotive programme The booklet is timely effort and shall prove an authentic guide for the physician engaged in meteral and child health promotion programmes.
It is the welcome step by National Academy of Ayurveda as well as of its authors.
