    My Dr.has prescribed jeeragarita +gandarvahastadi kashayam+dhanwantra tablet for my angina.In what way it cures angina

    • As per Ayurveda, Angina is a Vata imbalance condition. All the suggested medicines balance Vata and hence, they may be prescribed to you. They are also useful in correcting digestion and constipation symptoms that you may have.

    Dr had open myomectomy 27days before I consulted an ayurvedic Dr.she prescribed jeerakaristam and dashamoolaristam.is that enough? Or whether I have to do smethng else.what care should I take?

    • Hi, if the myomectomy is already done, then just jeerakarishtam and dashamoolarishtam are sufficient. Please continue them. Avoid junk foods, excess sugar, oily foods.

    Hi Dr,

    I have acid reflux. I have been advised to have jirakadyarishta along with chitrakadi vati. Is that fine?

    Thanks in advance.

    • If your digestion strength is low then both these medicines are useful to improve digestion power. But Chitrakadi vati in some may cause worsening of acid reflux. You will have to try with it for a week time and then decide further with your doctor.

  8. Hi Doctor,

    I am taking jeerakarishtam and dhvannantharam tablets for Indigesion as doctor prescribed.. wht are the foods i should avoid while takng ths medicines and how long i continue these medcines?

    • Include more of cucumber, cinnamon, cumin seeds, cardamom, ash gourd, curry leaves, asa foetida, dry grapes in your diet.
      If possible, have aloe vera juice / sugarless grape juice at least two times a week.
      If you feel that acidity increases whenever stomach is empty, have Marie biscuits with you and eat two biscuits, once in every two hours.
      Soak five almonds and raisins (dry grapes) in water at night. Next day morning, throw away the water, eat raisins, peel the skin of almond and eat it.
      Crush cumin seeds into fine powder. add half tea-spoon of cumin seeds to one liter of water. boil the water for two minutes and filter. Drink this water, in place of normal water. But new water needs to be made everyday.
