Ayurvedic benefits


Based on the principles of Ayurvedic herbalism or “Dravya Guṇa“, Aditi is a synergy of plants that decreases Pitta and slightly Vāta in its action to better balance Kapha.
 
Kapha Dosha is the dosha that supports lactation through its “vehicle”: Rasa Dhātu.

Vaidya's advice


Rest is an essential factor in breastfeeding women, mainly due to lack of sleep. Nevertheless, rest should be balanced: naps of more than half an hour should be avoided, especially after meals.
 
Also, do remain active during this period of your life. Daily moderate exercise will allow your digestive fire, your metabolism, to produce better milk. A daily minimum of half an hour of walking is required for this purpose.
 
Foods that are not part of your habits as well as those which are not local or in season should be avoided. Excess of salty, sour, fermented and all foods of “hot” nature should be avoided.
 
Finally, Ayurveda encourages direct contact with your child for a harmonious breastfeeding, especially in the first days after delivery.
