My experience with Balamrit.


At our holistic parenting WhatsApp group there is one topic that is constantly bothering our fellow parents is to improve immunity. I could think nothing more than Balamrit that saved by child. It is a nice memory I could recall. It’s was my 9 months of motherhood journey to welcome my second baby Ojas. I nurtured myself well with all the nutrients, vitamins and so on, till 7 the month, but God has his own plans. Scanning report showed fetus isn’t receiving enough blood circulation through mother. Despite repeated scans I’am helpless. I was suggested to go for emergency C-section, Don’t know why I did, but I just denied. I took it as a challenge to wait till 9 month to let baby fight with his immune system. Finally the day approached when the baby has to enter the world. My happiness reams no boundaries glancing at my Angel.

Two days later, his blood reports showed low platelets for which the pediatric suggested all possible tests. Only option I was given was Bone marrow. I was totally disturbed at the sight of my baby in ICU. Paediatric explained its due to mother’s womb a virus entered the baby which was the reason for his low platelets. Requested the Hospital staff to discharge my baby though Doctors denied thinking it would be risky. I was sure our family home-remedies have deeper meaning. I prepared balamrit, a herbal mix we used to give for new born usually prepared by granny at home, I gave it to my new born daily and followed regular oil bath, kept the house clean and always played various Vedic chants at home all the time with sincere prayer. Touch wood as days passed by and routine check-ups showed drastic increase in his platelets and health. The first one year was immense struggle for a mother saving a baby. Now he’s 2 yrs. When I look back now down the line with my happy and healthy toddler the only one thing I should mention is “thanks to balamrit” for being with me in my journey.My purpose of sharing this amazing real life experience is to create awareness and introduced Balamrit to all the new mothers and get benefited of our ancient knowledge.

Balamrit is a traditional mixture of certain herbs (Almond, Dry Dates, Nutmeg, Myrica Nagi, Gum Arabic, Terminalia chebula, Terminalia Belirica, Indiancscrew tree, Long pepper, Sweetflag, Licorice, Turmeric, Dryginger, Ashwagandha, Indian Atees, Embilia and Conessi Bark) which are used and given for 3 years to child to improve his immunity. They are very effective and individual herbs in it tend to cover major disorders of the child from stomach ache, teething, decentry to fevers to flatulence and so on. We used to take some breast milk [first six months] or water [after six months]. Rub each of this herbs once or twice. Once all herbs are rubbed, mix the blend with a drop of honey.

I start with spiritual prayers to pass on the healing energy. It is a time consuming process along with lot of strenuous efforts, the preparation involves choosing of right herbs along with their proportion consistency of mixing, hand pounding, grinding and finally filtering the waste out to make the smooth powder, nearly 25 gms get wasted in125 gms. The whole ultimate strenuous procedure is to help the child or infant swallow it smoothly without any difficulty.

At request of many parents, while I make for my children, I also make extra to share it the requested parents. Each pocket is of 100 gms, and it costs Rs.1470.


Market available ready-made ones may not have shell life for longer duration and not sure of if whole ingredients are used in its preparation. When we make it at home the cost is cheaper by 25% when compared with market.

I’m glad to share this ancient remedy that has been passed on to me by our forefathers. Do share your feedback after using this. If you need any assistance do feel free to reach me at |  +91 77740 34453.
