Millions of rupees have been spending for making society healthy from our government and also international organization like WHO also spend for millions of dollars for it. For making awareness of health all organizations spending so huge budget for medical camps, for medical aids, education, seminars, campaigns and also compulsory vaccination. When we make attention on the result and on efforts, the result seems nearby zero. Although, the result of strong campaign we can see the awareness of physical health in urban society. But we never think over the mental and spiritual health of the Society.
The principles of vaccine (improving immunity) were described in Ayurveda thousand years ago. If our body has sufficient immunity not a single infection or epidemic can affect us. Therefore, Ayurveda gifted us Suvarnaprashan to improve immunity of Child. ‘Suvarna’ means ‘Gold’ and ‘Prashan’ means ‘to lick’. Licking of Gold towards a child from birth to childhood mean up to twelve years called as ‘Suvarnaprashan’. Swarna Prashana is explained as an activity which has to be done immediately after birth. A strong foundation for proper growth and development of the body has to be set during the prenatal stage as well as during the Balya Avastha. To have optimum growth, development and a strong body which can also sustain well during the later part (Haani period and Vrudha Avastha) of life, it is essential to lay a strong foundation during the formative years of life. Swarna Prashana hence has to be started at 0 years i.e immediately after birth and can be continued up to the age of 16 years.

Kaya Seka or Sarvanga Dhara or Pizhichil is a special treatment procedure followed by traditional vaidyas (physicians) of Kerala. The word Pizhichil in Malayalam language literally means “squeezing”. Here the whole body is bathed in streams of lukewarm medicated oil with simultaneous soft massage. This Ayurveda’s Royal Treatment is famously called as the “treatment for aristocrats”, because the treatment was especially offered to the kings in ancient times.
In this treatment, the cloths are soaked in warm medicated oil and then squeezed on to the person’s body from a height, so that oil flows in a continuous single stream along the thumb, in a downward direction. The pieces of cloth are periodically soaked in a vessel containing warm oil. Gentle massage is given following the path of the oil stream. Trained therapists under the supervision of a physician perform the treatment. The patient should be made to adopt the seven standard positions, so that no area of the body is left uncovered. After the completion of the procedure, the person is made to take rest, by covering the body with a thick blanket for 30 minutes, before taking a bath in hot water.
Duration of the treatment: 45 minutes
