    Plz Give me the name of oil for neuro-problem.

    • It really depends upon the particular neurological problem.
      For rheumatism, neuralgia etc, Narayan oil, Mahanarayana taila etc are used.
      To improve body strength, Bala taila, Ksheerabala taila, Bala Ashwagandhadi taila etc are used.

  4. Hello Dr. I work out regularly in treadmill. Can I apply this on knees to prevent any loss of bone due to usage. I am 45

    • Yes. surely you can apply. It helps in prevention of inflammation and improves joint flexibility. But I do not heavily rely on it to prevent bone loss, but it helps to some extent.
