More than 2 million deaths are estimated to result each year the world over as a consequence of diarrheal disease in children of under five years.

Therefore, considering these prospects a demographic study was carried with 745 children (1-10 years of age group) suffering from recurrent diseases like cough, running nose, diarrhea, fever etc. Present research work shows that morbidity rate is high among 1-5 years of age group, in which recurrent respiratory tract infections and Dental caries are major form of morbidities in children of the survey village. Considering these facts health plans and Ayurveda way of child rearing practices should be developed in the form of administration of Ayurvedic immunomodulator drugs and maintenance of oral hygiene as per Ayurveda guidelines.
