  2. Can Mahalaxmi vilas ras SHIRO be given to 2 years 7 month old kid along with sitopaladi churan? Mixture of both medicine and giving one pinch 3 times a day, please advise.

  3. How much quantity dosege should be given to a 6 year old and a 12 year old kid.

  4. My 5 year old daughter frequently suffers (once in 30-45 days) from throat infection and sinusitis causing stuffy nose with yellowish green discharge. I am fed up of giving her antibiotics, and worry it would adversely affect her health. Yesterday I brought Dabur Mahalakshmivilas ras gold (pack of 25 tablets costing Rs. 530 for 25 days), on the advise of the pharmacist on the sale counter. I have given her two doses of 1/2 tablet crushed in honey. Please advise if this is OK? Can I continue to give her this dose?

    • Hi, rather than risking your daughter’s precious life with the advice of a pharmacist, I think it is better to consult a qualified Ayurveda doctor in person.
      No side effect with two dose of half a tablet of this. But do not continue it on your own.

    Hello doc, I was detected hiatus hernia 3yrs back. 6mons back I had pleural effusion/Tb in my right side of the lungs. I finished 6mons course of tb medicines. Presently I am using medicines for acidity and multivitamin and calcium tab. I was suggested to use mahalakshmi vilas ras gold to avoid relapse of tb in future by my friend. Kindly suggest me.

  10. The potency of turmeric is hot and hence it should always be boiled in milk and used. In case the milk is not suitable, it should be boiled with water adding little coriander power to pacify the turmeric heat. Secondly, turmeric takes longer time to digest and hence when using turmeric as a medicine, the patient should be advised to take little black pepper or ginger along with turmeric for quick digestion. Hope this information is helpful to you and others as well.

    • Dr Malini Bhat says:

      Hello Sir, Would advise you to consult a Ayurvedic Physician. As both the medicines contain herbo minerals a supervision is advised.

      Note: Please do consult a ayurvedic physician before taking over the counter medication. Because we all are genetically different with different constitutions and patterns, we respond to treatments in many different ways. Hence Standard Ayurvedic Treatments are always individually formulated. And the dosage is taken into consideration seeing several factors which include the age, sex and health of the individual.
      Ayurvedic medicines containing detoxified, toxic material/ poisonous substances, heavy metals should be taken only under medical supervision.
