    Dear Dr Hebbar,

    Since Arogyavardhini Vati contains mercury and heavy metals, it is always restricted to be taken for limited period with proper dosage and supervision, and also considered unsafe for pregnant ladies and children, I would suggest that people suffering from liver disorders and wish to keep their liver healthy should opt for Liv.52 (By Himalaya) in tablet or syrup form to be in the safer side and without any side effects and period restructions. Liv.52 contains Bhumu Amalaki (Phyllanthus niruli) and other safe herbs that makes it a complete herbal remedy to protect the liver. Liv.52 can be taken as a daily liver tonic by all for a longer periods. I am taking Living.52 for the past 14 years and maintain good health.

    Best regards,
    Kunwar Singh

    Dear Dr. Hebbar
    I have been suffering from chronic acidity and gastritis. I consulted many allopathic doctors. Usually they suggest different types of proton pump inhibitors such as pentaprazole, isomeprazole etc but acidity reoccurs after stopping the medicine. I also consulted many ayurvedic doctors and, tried alsarex, himcocid (himalaya), arogyavardhani vati, Plantacid tablets (Solumkis) and many more but no relief.
    I am also taking Gesole (Vyas) which seems slightly effective for gas but not the acidity.
    The acidity appears after 2-3 hours of lunch and then burping.
    Can you please advise some ayurvedic medicines.
