Let me start with one from my grandmother:
when your child complaints of common stomach ache,
give them a teaspoonful of undisturbed fresh curds with 10-12 fenugrik (menthi) seeds on top... the same for motions too in adults though... works wonders
FOR SORE THROAT.....jaggery 2tbsp,black pepper powdered-2tsp,ginger grated-1 tbsp,water-1 cup.boil all the ingredients to a thick consistency.store it in an air tight jar.when having sore throat add one tspn of concoction to 1 cup of warm milk bfore going to bed.
COLD REMEDY FOR BABIES...
For Colic-Stomach pain
Put this paste 2 drops in belly and apply this hot paste on tummy.
Helps releasing gas and relieves tummy pain
To know if infant is suffering from tummy pain
If baby is crying a lot, try pressing her tummy if she folds her leg then its tummy pain.
Give him Ghee/butter with food. Extra Ghee/butter will smooth the throat.
If coughing, give jaggery.
heat some cloves and grind them to fine powder.add a pinch of it into 1tsp of honey and give to your child.it gives good relief.
some honey in warm water.
Other than that , Sabudane ki kheer. Sabudana will stop motion , not only for kids but for adult too
More of it will cause constipation .
Just take 1 cup milk, very little sugar and 2-3 spoon of sabudana. You need to continuously stir it till 'kheer' is done or sabudana is soft.
Nutmeg paste helps with diarrhea
raw banana ..
just steam cooked raw banana with a pinch of salt is a very good stool binder .it was prescribed to me by doc when shreeniketh had loose stools ..
one or two tea spoons of onion juice[ grated and pressed] works like magic....and avoid giving it to very sall babies...but on older kids and adults it works like magic.
eat at least half cup of pomegranate seeds along with the white tails...if using for kids give them juice....if the child accepts give plain juice or else add a tsp of sugar. It not only controls motions but also regains taste(which is usually lost during dysentery).
For constipation, try giving fresh fruit - BANANA or ORANGE. It works wonders !!
Also apply some CASTOR OIL on the baby's belly button and the anus.
yes orange works wonders...both for adult and child
not reccomended for child below 8 months of age..
for children-remove the thin film and give small chunks only..
prune juice is the best...work for all without any doubt...
half spoon mixed in even infant's milk...and 100-200ml for adults...tummy clear in an hour.
sugar can be mixed in infant's milk to cure constipation.
