Ayurveda/Poor speech, slow learning and no weight gain for my son age 2.5 yrs


Hello Dr.Meenakshi,

My son who us 2.5 yrs now is experiencing slow growth, poor speech and not gaining weight and is still just 10kg.

At the time of birth he did not cry and was put on ventilator for around 7-8 days. He also experinced a seizure during fever few months back and also fainted once which doctor said is kind of seizure only.
We got bera and mri done at the time of birth but nothing was found and we again got mri and EEG when he faced a seizure but nothing apparent found.

He speaks only few words at his own but repeats most words when we tell him to repeat with us.

Is there any medicine in ayurveda which can help him improving speech, enhance learning and attention and help in gaining weight?? Please help.

I have heard about vacha and shankhpushpi. Can that help??

dear Mr Sharma

Yes Vacha and shankhpushpi are helpful. You can start using these immediately. Along with these Kumar kalyan ras half tablet twice a day with honey and arvindasav half spoon with equal water three times a day after food. Do let me know after one month.
