Concept of Immunisation in Ayurveda
Dr. Sunanda Ranade, India
Immunization is the process whereby a person is made immune or resistant to an infectious disease, typically by the administration of a vaccine. As the modern medical researches get advanced the vaccines were introduced.
Ayurveda old science of life has different view regarding immunization. It has given emphasis on keeping the balance between nature and human being. This science believes that Man is the miniature of the Nature. Boosting the immune system naturally is the principle of Ayurveda.
When the Vaccine were not invented medicines like Suvanaprash were working and still are working wonderfully to give support to protect the child from infectious diseases.
Now a days everything is polluted including Air, Water, Food. It is very difficult to protect child and bring him up naturally. But still very few families trying for that.
Side effects of the vaccines is the subject of the research. But the concept of the Ayurvedic immunization is a hope of ray for good healthy generation.
