April Sangha: Children's Health

Ayurvedic wisdom can create a healthy and happy childhood and can protect children from common typical ailments. Ayurveda can also arrest the modern day epidemics of asthma, eczema, and ear infections through the diet and lifestyle targeted for very young and prepubescent children. Discover natural ways to keep your children healthy and happy.

What to expect:

  • Discuss some of the common ailments of our children
  • Discover spices and herbs that benefit children
  • Watch master chef Sanjaiji Mathur demonstrate recipes to keep our children healthy and happy
  • Specific Ayurvedic pediatric guidance to be discussed, such as: 

    1) Mealtimes and healthy digestion
    2) Kitchen medicine – Ayurvedic Home Remedies
    3) Creating a daily routine — in Sanskrit called “Dinacharya” — for kids
    4) Mental & emotional health: improving focus, creating calmness, clarity, and alertness
    5) Natural help for ADD, ADHD, hyperactivity and special needs
    6) Maintaining immunity and strength throughout the season


  • The Sangha is both practical and sublime, incorporating practical health promoting and disease preventing measures from Ayurveda along with applied knowledge from the allied traditions of Yoga and Vedanta to help transform the body, mind and soul.

You will leave empowered with health-promoting knowledge and personal insights you can readily apply, and easy seasonal recipes using Ayurveda's super foods and digestive spices.

Come learn about Ayurveda’s uplifting science and spirituality, transformative lifestyle and healing foods and flavors.

    I invited a friend a mother of one 3year old son. Today she contacted me to let me know how grateful she is to have gone and learned so much. We had three doctors of Ayurveda give prevention and remedy tips to very common childhood ailments! Excellent information :) A Vedika Gurukula student gave a presentation for the children also.
