    • Dr Malini Bhat says:

      Hello Sir,
      Simple and effective home remedies for bleeding gums:
      Take a cotton swab and dip it in clove oil. Gently rub on the gums for a minute or two.
      The tender leaves of guava or jamun(blue berry) is taken and crushed well. This is kept in the mouth and chewed. It promotes the strength of the gums.
      The flowers of hibiscus and ixora are taken in equal quantities. To this, 2 pinch of yashtimadhu powder is added and pounded well to obtain a slimy paste. This is retained in the mouth for 20-30 minutes. It strengthens the gums and arrests the bleeding from the gums.
      Make water decoction (Kashaya) from Triphala and use this for mouth rinsing and gargling twice a day.

  20. Lopamudra says:

    Camhor, even in small doses can be harmful. So is KHADIRADI SAFE OR WOULD CAUSE CAMHOR POISONING?

    • Edible form of camphor is used for medicinal purpose in Ayurveda since thousands of years. Hence, Khadiradi vati is safe. I have not noted any camphor poisoning case caused due to usage of Khadiradi vati.

  21. anubhav says:

    sir i have tonsillitis from more then one month. it’s really very painfull but i have no problm in much time chronic tonsillitis takes to cure….???

  22. Can i take Khadiradi gutika, while I’m breastfeeding?

  23. Dear doctor my husband is suffering from cough with throat ellergy and sputummainly at morning can he use khadiradivati

  24. Hello,

    Caraka Cikit 26.207 mentions this as effective for various teeth conditions, cavities, tartar, etc, and names it an excellent medicine for all affections of the teeth, the mouth, and the throat. Specifically for teeth, since commercial formulas vary, do you have a recommendation of which brands are preferable? I can find Zandu but there are quite a few herbs missing and I’m not sure if some are needed for teeth. Vicco tooth powder looks to be another formula fairly close to it. Any opinions about which might be better?

    • Zandu Khadiradi bati is a very good product. I have used in many patients. Herbal tooth powder – dentone is good –

      • Thank you. I currently live in America. Many products are hard to find, unavailable, and mostly more expensive. Zandu can be found online as well as Divya (?) though that quality is unknown. All modern commercial formulations also differ greatly from Caraka and likely other texts. I currently use Vicco toothpaste as well as applying their powder a few times or more a day with good results. Already having Vicco, I’d imagine some formulas like Zandu are possibly helpful complements? Though I do not know the limit of healing cavities or damaged teeth from older bad habits. Bhringaraj and other herbs I take likely also help. There could be others but I have not looked and it can be expensive and complicated combining herbs learned from texts without the experience of a doctor. My diet has also mostly been barley red rice millet mung various vegetables including morninga leaves when in season black sesame etc. While many minerals and other substances are important, I found a list of Indian foods ranked by calcium. Urad and rajma dal were higher. Mehti taro coriander leaves as well. Seems perhaps what is heavier or builds dhatus improves energy but can also increase fat and ama, perhaps they also increase bone. So I am modifying my diet by slowing adding foods while trying to limit heaviness. Gavedukha has also been found to reduce osteoporosis though it may be for reasons other than mineral content; I didn’t look at the study to see why. I have been using that as a main grain for more than a month for kapha. Around 40 percent or more with the rest rice millet quinoa or some mix. Generally the diet produces no sensitivity or worsening but for healing cavities strengthening building ennamel or even repairing chips, I do not know which of those are possible or how long it takes or what other procedures to add such as abhyanga jala neti nasya pranayama which yoga poses, what foods to eat more of or change (good milk is unavailable here) etc. Some things like nasya I’ve started, neti recently I’ve been forgetting to do. Likely everything helps, though some possibly more than others. I’m continuing though repairing decades of bad habits obtained from modern culture and before learning ayurveda, that can take some time.
