First 100 days (~4 months) are critical. We Indians only do निष्क्रमण संस्कार after 100 days. After 100 days in home, we take out child and introduce outer univese, The Sun, The moon, Trees, River, Lake and of course relatives.

निष्क्रमण संस्कार इस संस्कार का फल विद्वानों ने आयु की वृद्धि बताया है- निष्क्रमणादायुषो वृद्धिरप्युद्दिष्टा मनीषिभि:।ये संस्कार शिशु के जन्म के चौथे चा छठे महीने में किया जाता है। सूर्य तथा चंद्रमा आदि देवताओं का पूजन कर शिशु को उनके दर्शन कराना इस संस्कार की मुख्य प्रक्रिया है। हमारा शरीर पृथ्वी, जल, अग्नि, वायु और आकाश, जिन्हें पंचभूत कहा जाता है, से बना है। इसलिए पिता इस संस्कार में इन देवताओं से बच्चे के कल्याण की प्रार्थना करते हैं।

जन्म के चौथे मास में निष्क्रमण-संस्कार होता है। जब बच्चे का ज्ञान और कर्मेन्द्रियां सशक्त होकर धूप, वायु आदि को सहने योग्य बन जाती हैं। सूर्य तथा चंद्रादि देवताओं का पूजन करके बच्चे को सूर्य, चंद्र आदि के दर्शन करना इस संस्कार की मुख्य प्रक्रिया है।
यूंकि बच्चे का शरीर पृथ्वी, जल, तेज, वायु तथा आकाश से बनता है, इसलिए बच्चे का पिता इस संस्कार के अंतर्गत आकाश आदि पंचभूतों के अधिष्ठाता देवताओं से बच्चे के कल्याण की कामना करते हुए कहता है-
शिवे ते स्वां द्यावापृथिवी असंतापे अभिश्रियो।
शं ते सूर्य आ तपतुशं वातो वातु ते ह्रदे।
शिवा अभि क्षरन्तु त्वापो दिव्या पयस्वती:।।

अर्थात् हे बालक! तेरे निष्क्रमण के समय द्युलोक तçाा पृथिवीलोक, कल्याणकारी सुखद एवं शोभास्पद हों। सूर्य तेरे लिए कल्याणकारी प्रकाश करें। तेरे ह्रदय में स्वच्छ कल्याणकारी वायु का संचरण हो। दिव्य जल वाली गंगा-यमुना आदि नदियां तेरे लिए निर्मल स्वादिष्ट जल का बहन करें। (via

The first 100 days are crucial.

During this 100 days, child is groomed in known प्राणिक signatures of mother and other family members. No strangers please. Read Man is known by the company he keeps : We all have individual microbial cloud to know more. This helps child to acquire only known healthy familiar bacteria!

So primitive that they keep Desi Gau’s gobar and mutra at all Sanskar ceremonies. So that their infants get Gau mata’s blessings and build foundation of healthy प्राणमय शरीर.
“And our study emphasises that in that first 100 days the structure of the gut microbiome seems to be very important in influencing the immune responses that cause or protect us from asthma.”
Oh Hindus? So primitive they are! They know very well how to avoid Asthama and other immune disorders ! So primitive and fanatic. 🙂

Reclaim and revive dharma!


Children exposed to 4 key bacteria are less likely to develop asthma, study finds

Children who acquire four kinds of gut bacteria in the first three months of their lives can be protected from developing asthma, according to new research.

The four bacteria, called FLVR (Faecalibacterium, Lachnospira, Veillonella, and Rothia), are naturally acquired by most babies through exposure in their home surroundings. However, some infants miss out, and it’s those children who are at most risk of developing asthma, according to researchers from the University of British Columbia in Canada.

“And our study emphasises that in that first 100 days the structure of the gut microbiome seems to be very important in influencing the immune responses that cause or protect us from asthma.”

Early infancy microbial and metabolic alterations affect risk of childhood asthma

Asthma is the most prevalent pediatric chronic disease and affects more than 300 million people worldwide. Recent evidence in mice has identified a “critical window” early in life where gut microbial changes (dysbiosis) are most influential in experimental asthma. However, current research has yet to establish whether these changes precede or are involved in human asthma. We compared the gut microbiota of 319 subjects enrolled in the Canadian Healthy Infant Longitudinal Development (CHILD) Study, and show that infants at risk of asthma exhibited transient gut microbial dysbiosis during the first 100 days of life. The relative abundance of the bacterial genera Lachnospira,Veillonella, Faecalibacterium, and Rothia was significantly decreased in children at risk of asthma. This reduction in bacterial taxa was accompanied by reduced levels of fecal acetate and dysregulation of enterohepatic metabolites. Inoculation of germ-free mice with these four bacterial taxa ameliorated airway inflammation in their adult progeny, demonstrating a causal role of these bacterial taxa in averting asthma development. These results enhance the potential for future microbe-based diagnostics and therapies, potentially in the form of probiotics, to prevent the development of asthma and other related allergic diseases in children.
