SSC 47 Marasmus Combination
This is the basic combination. Add more Sanjeevinis or Combinations according to the condition of the child e.g. SSC 19 (b) Vision combination , SSC 35 Teeth combination etc
Marasmus is the ultimate condition of malnutrition and emaciation (remember the pictures of starving children in Ethiopia). Marasmus in poor countries is due to famine and wars.
In normal families, one of the causes can be due to psychological disowning of the child by the mother. We recommend giving the basic combination of SSC 1 & SSC 60 (the Sanjeevini Tonic) to the mother to remove psychological .blocakges.
In the event that the child or group of children or a community is suffering from marasmus due to external factors like poverty, please prepare the Sai Protein food as given in the Recipes Chapter and distribute as a daily quota. This is a very cost-effective and easy way to provide nutrition.
