Hi Anu
I was also facing the same problem. You cannot do much about it as kids play with other kids and climatic changes, this is bound to happen as they are exposed to whole lot of things. Homeopathy is the best option. Continue with it. It takes some time but results are very good. Have patience. U can include Mosambi juice, orange or lemon juice in her diet but be sure u add warm water. If u want to follow ayurvedic then u can give her Septilin syrup 2.5ml 2 times aday for 3 months with Suckcee (vit C tabs) 1/2 tab a day for 3 months. This was suggested by my Doc. I would suggest U should not try too many things at the same time. If u are taking homeopathy, continue the treatment.

give mosambi/orange juice everyday unless its a very cold climate or the child has cold/cough. If its cold outside, give small banana (not the regular size one) one or two per day. you can even sprinkle some lemon juice over dal/curry during lunch.Regularly include onions in the diet. raisins , garlic,black pepper,turmeric all are good for cough/cold.
Also, try giving bath twice a day since she is going to pre-school. Wash her hands regularly. if she has cold, give steam at home instead of nebulising her. you get very good vaporisers in medical shops for nominal prices.

Interesting Ideas to make Kids Learn
Hi Malti,
Just calm down, it is common among all children and small kids love to roam or play than to study. To improve the kid’s concentration just try to play some interesting games with him. Something like matching colors and shapes etc. He is too young and there are many chances to improve him so don’t worry.

Nail biting habit
My son is 12 years old and he has a habit of nail biting since childhood. I tried to dissuade him but he forgets and always bites nails. His nails are all shabby due to chewing and sometimes blood also comes out of them. I tried various methods such as scolding, bandaging his fingers but somehow these have not helped him. He bites more when he is stressed. Actually I too h... - Neelam Shah [View Message]
