    will this medicine helps to grow hair. I was taking this medicine for ezchema for the last 1 year. I feel my hair growth is improved

    • It boosts liver enzymes and balances Pitta, both have effects on promoting hair growth. So yes. It has an indirect positive effect on hair growth.

        Dear Doctor
        Thank you for your advise. I was taking this medicine for the last one year. Could you please tell me how long should i take this medicine.I have got dermatis ezchema for the last 20 years but after taking this medicine it is well controlled. will it get cured completely or we can only keep controlled

        • A lot of it depends upon the condition. Since you have a long history, a general assumption can be made that the medicine would keep the disease under control. It can be continued for a long time, only if your Ayurveda doctor advises.

  4. can this be used in gallstones treatment? can this dissolves it?

    • Theoretically yes. But I do not have any experience of using this medicine to treat gall stones.
