Ayurveda/herbs for kid


Respected Dr.,
         My 3.6 yr old child is cranky ,shy & moody.He is also v. stubborn.He is v. energetic ,with less sleep.He doesnt suffer from any kind of disorder though.I wish to give him herbs like shankhpushpi,ashwagandha,brahmi, jatamansi etc , by boiling them in water & then giving him that concation.He refuses to have any tablet/ayurvedic churna.Can you kindly tell me the ratio in which i should take these herbs to boil them .He also doent have a good apetite & weighs only 12 kgs

I would suggest that u simply start with good herbal tonic for kids like---Infee syp--1 spoon morning evening
Bonnisan syp of himalaya--1 spoon morning evening
all this for 1 month and u will see good change in his condition.
Don't put him on jatamansi at this age.
We should go slow with child's body and not experiment. Though herbs are safe but do bring about lot of changes.
