\"Preconception

  • The child will pay the price of the parent`s ignorance , weaknesses & greed [for unhealthy things] and in general , the mistakes they make.
  • Toxins / Dosha accumulate in the body due to wrong lifestyle & diet.
  • This affects the formation of ovum and sperms badly.
As per Ayurveda , following things lead to formation of toxins in body…….
    • irregular eating hours.
    • mental & physical stress.
    • late nights working hours.
    • fast food / junk food.
    • oily food.
    • spicy food.
    • salty food.

    • cold drinks.
    • excess fermented food.
    • excess sour food.
    • food containing excess preservatives.
    • smoking.
    • alcohol.

\"

    • To remove these accumulated Dosha/toxins from the body, I will follow the Garbhakranti preconception preparation.
    • My husband will also follow the same, so that we will ensure our dream baby:

\"Garbhakranti

    • Poorvakarma like……
      • Snehan – oleation with medicated oils
      • Swedan – fomentation with medicated steam
    • Panchakarma like……
      • Vaman
      • Virechan
      • Basti
    • Garbhakranti preconception diet
    • Process of Snehan , Swedan , Vaman , Virechan , Basti should be done by a qualified doctor with knowledge in the field and should not be done at home.
    • Poorvakarma [ Snehan & Swedan ] and Panchakarma [ Vaman , Virechan , Basti ] should be done starting 3 months before the couple plans to have a child .
    • Poorvakarma [ Snehan & Swedan ] and Panchakarma [ Vaman , Virechan , Basti ] should not be done on pregnant woman.

\"Garbhakranti

What is Poorvakarma & why is it necessary ?

\"Toxins

  • If you try to bend a dry stick, it will probably break but not bend.
  • On the contrary if we massage the same with oil, it can bend easily.
  • The same principle applies while doing Panchakarma on the body.
  • It means that the flared up Dosha / toxins in the body are brought into stomach / large intestine / nose or sinuses with Poorvakarma.
  • They are thrown away from the body with Panchakarma.
How do the Dosha come from all the body parts to the GIT [ gastrointestinal tract / stomach ] /nose in Snehan and Swedan ?

\"How

  • Our body consists of many blood vessels.
  • Blood vessels are necessary for the circulation of different elements of the body which take place through blood.
  • When Snehan is performed on the body, the medicinal oil penetrates through the skin pores into the different parts of the body.
  • The Dosha are attached in a microscopic manner to the blood vessels walls.
  • Snehan ensures detachment of these Dosha from the vessels into the blood.
  • Swedan helps in mobilisation of Dosha / toxins from various parts of the body to get into the Ashaya like stomach / large intestine / nose etc.
  • Swedan leads to dilatation of skin pores and aids in the dilatation of blood vessels and the removal of Dosha.
  • The Dosha enter the GIT / nose or the sinuses from the blood and are removed by Panchakarma.

How do Snehan & Swedan actually act on the body ?

    • Snehan means oleation of body externally with medicated oils / ghee.
    • It helps in detachment of Dosha / toxins from various parts of the body.
    • Swedan means fomentation of body with medicated steam.
    • In this process, a decoction of medicinal herbs is prepared and the body is fomented with steam of the same.
    • Swedan helps in mobilisation of Dosha / toxins from various parts of the body into various Ashaya like stomach, large Intestine, nose, sinuses, and blood vessels.
    • From Ashaya , Dosha/ toxins go out of the body with help of Panchakarma like…..
      • Vaman
      • Virechan
      • Basti
    • The heat of the steam also dilates the skin pores and the person sweats. This removes heaviness, malaise, laziness from the body.

\"How

  • Literature has given an excellent example of how Dosha are detached from the vessel.
  • If we apply oil to a vessel from inside & then pour water inside, then while pouring the water out, the whole of the water is removed.
  • Similarly in Snehan, the Dosha are removed from the body and transferred to the GIT/ nose / sinuses / blood vessels.

What is the exact difference between the massage & steam / sauna bath which is given in the fitness centre and the Ayurvedic Snehan / Swedan ?

  • In the ordinary massage given in the fitness centre, ordinary oils are used.
  • But in Ayurvedic Snehan , medicinal oils / Ghee are being used.
  • Similarly the purpose in steam / sauna bath is to generate only steam which leads to sweating.
  • In Ayurvedic Swedan various medicinal decoctions are used hence the steam is medicinal steam.
  • Thus in Ayurvedic Snehan & Swedan for the prevention of health of a person, medicinal massage or steam are being used & hence it is more beneficial.

What is Vaman ?

\"Vaman\"

  • The process of collecting the Dosha from the upper parts of the body into the stomach & then removing it from the body by giving medicines to vomit it out is called as Vaman.
  • The medicines of Vaman have effect on the whole body.
  • Vaman is particularly beneficial in people with predominance of Kapha Dosha.
  • Process of Vaman should be done by a qualified doctor with knowledge in the field and should not be done at home.

What is Virechan ?

\"\"

  • The process of removal of Dosha of the body from the anal route is called as Virechan.
  • It is beneficial in people with predominance of Pitta Dosha.
  • Process of Virechan should be done by a qualified doctor with knowledge in the field and should not be done at home.

What is Basti ?

\"Basti\"

    • It means actually Pitta & Kapha Dosha is dependent on Vata Dosha ; hence with vitiation of Vata Dosha ; Pitta , Kapha & Rakta Dosha get affected.
    • To get rid of this situation, Basti is very useful.

\"Basti\"

    • Basti is very useful in people with predominance of Vata mainly.
    • In Basti, medicated oils and medicated decoctions are administered through the anal route to remove toxins.
    • Process of Basti should be done by a qualified doctor with knowledge in the field and should not be done at home.

\"Preconception

Visualise my dream baby !

    • Thus after Poorvakarma & Panchakarma my body is ready for pregnancy, now I should start Garbhakranti preconception diet for me and for my husband.
    • This diet will nourish me and my husband for my dream baby.
    • Simultaneously, we must visualise our dream baby.
    • As per Ayurveda, to realise our dream baby, the first step is that we must think, visualise accordingly.
    • There are 3 situations when mother`s thoughts , behaviour , lifestyle have maximum impact on the baby,………
      • when the ovum is being formed.
      • when the baby is in the womb of the mother.
      • when the mother is breastfeeding the baby.

\"Visualise

  • My dream baby is possible if I create in my mind the visual of my dream baby.
  • It is said that out of all our sense organs the impact of the visual on the mind is the highest.
  • Hence I myself and my husband together will create the image of our dream baby. Draw the image, colour it.
  • Keep this image in front of our eyes all throughout the pregnancy.
  • We will sense and touch our dream baby & talk with our dream baby.
