    International Journal Advanced Ayurveda and Pharmacy Research, 2015, Volume 1, Issue 1, pp. 1-13, “Evaluation of Treatment Modality of Mandalidamsa with Ajitagada in Clinical Level”, Nitin Urmaliya et al.

    Let me quote the relevant part from the above article:

    “Vilwadi yoga has the 13 ingredients of drug, most of the drugs having kapha vata hara property. Also three ingredients have Tridoshaghna property. Bhawana drug – Goat’s urine has kapha vata hara property.”

    Kindly clarify.
