Ayurveda for Kids: Bala Tantra

Ayurveda has a specialized branch of Pediatric medicine known as BalaTantra or Kaumarabhritya. This ancient science offers some simple, natural, wisdom to keep kids healthy and happy in today’s fast paced world. Childhood is a tender but wonderful stage of human life. Because the dhatus are still immature, special care during childhood is essential.  The physical development and the mental state during this cycle play a major role in the foundation of the rest of a person’s life.

 

Ayurveda recommends that both parents undergo panchakarma before they wish to conceive a child. This helps to prevent their current state of health vikruti from being passed on to the baby. Once conception is achieved, the mother practices to be relaxed during pregnancy, reading spiritual books, chanting mantras, eating a doshic diet, following a self-care regime, receiving regular abhyanga, practicing gentle and restorative yoga and meditation.

From conception onward, Ayurveda places great emphasis on post partum care for the mother to balance vata and promote vitality and good health in her, as well as to ensure the healthy development of the baby. After birth, both the newborn infant and the mother are to be cared for throughout the first forty days with the utmost attention. Traditionally, these rituals consist of daily oil massage, bathing, and other herbal therapies. Even today in much of rural India and Nepal there is a wealth of wisdom on birthing and infant’s health care that lays in the hands of midwives and grandmothers, even though many restrictions have been placed upon them.

One of the eight branches of Ayurveda like we expressed early is pediatrics (Bala Tantra). It teaches simple natural wisdom to keep our little ones happy and healthy. Kids live in a Kapha period of life no matter what their constitution is. That means that they will be prone to Kapha diseases like cold, cough and other respiratory disorders and sometimes a disease is a call for attention and love in both kids and adults.

Here are a few suggestions to implement Ayurveda in your little one’s daily life.

 

  • Protecting of emotions

Over-stimulation or sensory overload from TV, computer, video games, and commercials leave lasting impressions on kid’s minds. These go deep into the psyche and disturb their life force (prana), affecting emotional and spiritual growth of our loved ones. Since they can’t control themselves it is our focus to protect their delicate sensory organs. Even newborns when being in the room where an adult movie is running can experience thier senses offended.

  • Creative play

Playing with children develops their creativity and imagination, while their souls are satisfied by the love and attention they crave from us. They remember for their life not the plenty of toys and video games bought for them, but a simple game outdoors when you played, bonded and laughed together.

 

  • Consistent routine

Consistency gives a child a sense of security, confidence and reduces stress. Waking up early, going to bed early and eating with nature’s rhythms. While the Sun is on its highest while consuming meals provide good digestive fire which are a strong foundation of good health.

  • Freshly cooked, medicinal meals with herbs and spices

Warm nourishing meals like hot cereal, vegetable soups and kitchari (thin warm dish with rice and green or yellow mung beans) speak well to kids. Such food is highly nutritious and easy to digest. Small pinches of digestive spices like cumin, coriander, fennel, cinnamon, and turmeric clear possible toxins and can ward off common colds, flus, and allergies.

  • Warm oil massage

A daily Abhyanga (warm oil massage) before bath time calms the nervous system and provides a layer of protection from germs. It boosts the immune system and to their intellect as well producing qualities of happiness and healthiness. These few minutes of loving abhyanga enhances the bonding and affection that kids seek.

May the long time sun shine upon you, all love surround you, and the pure light within you, guide your way on.

love, #krishna

Pairing Pasta with Sauce | Bon Appétit

Matching pasta shapes to sauces play a bigger part in sauce pairings. Choosing the right pasta depends on the topping. 

Tubular shapes like penne and ziti are perfect with thick sauces 

Wide, flat pastas like pappardelle are ideal for soaking up creamy sauces, the wider the noodle, the heavier the sauce.

Long, round pastas like spaghetti are best with olive oil- and tomato-based sauces. 

Chunky vegetable sauces absolutely go better with short pastas 

Choosing a pasta shape to suit the nature of your sauce makes a big difference to the finished dish.

Healthy Hemp Oil 

Hemp is a deeply misunderstood plant, since it comes from the same family (cannabis sativa) as marijuana. While the plants do share many similarities, it is the differences that make hemp so special. The hemp plant has been used and cultivated by many civilizations worldwide since ancient times. People used to depend on the strong fibers of hemp to produce durable cloth in China and Turkestan. Hemp oil and seeds were also used as food.
Only later was hemp used as medicine in Asia, while it took many more centuries for high CBD hemp oil to be recognized for its medicinal properties in the West

The Differences between Hemp and Marijuana? 

Just because two plants belong to the same family, it does not make them identical or even similar.

Hemp is cultivated so it contains far less THC than marijuana. Hemp is much taller when harvested than marijuana. The production of hemp does not violate the Controlled Substances Act.

The most important of these points is that hemp naturally produces only tiny amounts of THC, which is the psychoactive substance in marijuana that causes a high. On the other hand, hemp contains quite a lot of CBD, which is a legal, non-psychoactive cannabinoid. High CBD hemp oil offers almost as many health benefits as THC-rich medical marijuana (if not more).

The Health Benefits of CBD Hemp Oil

CBD has been shown by studies and continuing research to have many health benefits similar, if not identical, to those of medical marijuana products. 

Among the must-know facts about cannabidiol are its potent health benefits:

Diminished Nausea (excellent for anyone undergoing chemotherapy)

Improved Appetite
(fantastic for individuals who suffer and who are in recovery from an eating disorder such as anorexia or bulima) 

Pain Relief

Stress Relief

Anxiety Reduction (helps diminish panic attacks and general anxiety)

CBD is simply CBD, no matter which cannabis plant you get it from. CBD is short for cannabidiol, which is one of the (more than 60) cannabinoids contained in most cannabis/hemp plants. The difference is in how much CBD every plant contains. 

CBD Does it come in all forms? 

It does such as CBD Hemp oil, edibles, liquids, capsules, tinctures, oils, flowers, concentrate, kief, plant extract, and contains no THC and more CBD. This is a reason to why CBD hemp oil is a superb choice. 


How to Purchase CBD Hemp Oil

There are plenty of shops online that offer CBD hemp oil, and it is possible to find similar products in cannabis collectives and dispensaries in the states where  they are legal.

The best way to ensure that your CBD hemp oil is pure and of potent quality a suggested source we recommend is Healthy Hemp Oil 

How to Make Stuff with CBD Hemp Oil

CBD Creativity is the fun part! CBD supplements come in so many variations and products that you can experiment quite a lot in the way it is consumed. Ingesting oil is for a quick solution and It is smart to choose a flavored CBD oil too your liking for maximum enjoyment.

Vaping CBD oil with a special vape pen is another option if you prefer to inhale your cbd product in the form of mist.

Did you know that, CBD oil can be added to foods, smoothies, drinks and sweets as a flavor enhancer and an agent of healing for the mind, body, and soul?

The Hidden Magic in Joshua Tree 

Deep in the desert, searching for enlightenment at a spot that’s filled with Joshua trees. This area, we love its name, monzogranite rock formations and the triad of cholla, cactus and prickly pear that prick my legs, it feels like acupuncture. 

Joshua Tree National Park, we have become so amazed of these wondrous surroundings,  also appreciating the floral delights.  

In this particular portion of southeastern California Joshua Tree became a national park in 1994, and that is named for the yucca trees native to the park. It’ll tell you that Joshua Tree’s grow quickly and that you could eat the buds. But here’s what I’ll tell you: the name ‘Joshua’ was decided on by Mormons who thought that the tree’s natural form mimicked that of Joshua praying to the sky in an episode of the Bible, and that the sun sets on the rocks just right and that you can get great tacos in the small town right before you drive in. I’ll tell you that there’s a candy store in town and that you can freely camp and cook and wake up to snow in the desert. We can tell you this, because it’s real: the hidden gem of Joshua Tree is  something you have to experience to believe.

California Cow – California Farm 


Three Reasons Not To Eat A Cow. 

1 Cows Have Complex Feelings. 
Cows are gentle social animals. They have the ability to recognize more than 100 other cows, and they form close friendships with members of their herd and also with humans. 

2  Your Body Will Thank You

To make cows grow at an unnaturally fast rate, the cattle industry implants them with pellets full of hormones. While low levels of naturally occurring hormones are found in various foods, many scientists are concerned that the artificial hormones injected into cows cause health problems in humans who eat them. Many of these hormones are illegal in many countries. 

3 Plant-Based Meat Is Better Than Ever

Leaving cows and other animals off your plate is easier than ever. You can now get tasty veggie burgers at numerous restaurants, and every food store is beginning to carry vegetarian beef replacements, all of which are delicious and cholesterol- and cruelty-free.
