What is Colic pain Ayurvedic treatment


Colic refers to the excessive, frequent crying in a baby who appears to be otherwise healthy. This is seen in at least one in five babies.Colic tends to begin when a baby is a few weeks old and normally stops by four months of age. At the latest it is gone by six months. Colicky babies are usually fussy and difficult to calm.

In Ayurveda, pain in and around the navel is called colic. It is generally associated with constipation. In infants, the dhatu (body tissue) is still new and developing; also the agni (digestive fire) is low or mand. This means that they cannot digest everything that is eaten by the mother or the formula food that is given to them. Thus the mother has to be very careful about what she eats while she is breastfeeding. According to ayurveda, aggravation of vayu causes the colic pain.
