Kaumarabhrtyam (Paediatrics in Ayurveda)

V.L.N. Sastry (Author) Jaikrishnadas Ayurveda Series

Kasyapa mentioned different remedial measures against various diseases for the welfare of children.  Even though ancient scholastic physicians like Vrddha-traya handled all faculties of Ayurveda, Caraka attained fame as a specialist of Internal Medicine; Susruta became a popular surgeon whereas Kasyapa is recognized as a paediatrician.  This indicates the concept of necessity of specialization and commitment towards research.  With the same spirit, the subsequent Ayurvedists like Vagbhatas, Nagarjuna and so on advanced the science of Ayurveda.  In the current medical era, the clinical technological advancements in the fields of obstetrics and paediatrics for about past five decades substantially reduced the 'infantile and maternal mortality rate'.  The field of Ayurveda is no exception to constitute fundamentalists, rationalists and revolutionists.  However, all of these groups are to survive in the clutches of a peculiar culture prevalent in Ayurvedic institutions shackled by complacency, cynicism and dogmatism.  Ayurvedic scientists have to cross over such barriers to make a mark of absolute progress.  No doubt, the past glory of Ayurveda remains nostalgic.  The purpose of medical practice is the welfare of mankind.  It bears no value without applied significance.  This shall be the area of research in Ayurveda to become practical and popular in the present standards of fast changing socio-medical factors.  Certain concepts of Ayurveda, related to philosophy and medicine, far from applied strategies, do require a scientific review and research, either to consolidate for implementation or to discard.  An Ayurvedist whether a practitioner, teacher, researcher or an entrepreneur shall remain honest without hypocrisy with perfect knowledge of his limitations.
