  1. Rajesh V says:

    My daughter is 5 yrs old, has seizure disorder complication from her 5month of childhood. She is in Allopathy medication still for the last 4 yrs. She never had seizure free month in the last 4 yrs. Normally she used to get 3 to 4 times of brief episodes of seizures monthly. Recently have met a Sidha Practioner and consulted about my daughters illness then he has advised me to give Dabur – SMRITISAGAR RAS medicine 2 times daily along with Honey as 3 hrs before the intake of allopathy medicines during morning and late evening to my daughter. But on viewing the side effects of SMRITISAGAR RAS in the web “” that it is specified as “It is best avoided in Pregnancy, lactation and in Children’. Also the Sidha Practioner is not sure how & when the illness would be stopped on taking this medicine, since it is marketed by Dabur for epilepsy patients. He has referred the same.

    Hence humbly request you to advice whether it is recommended to give this medicine to a 5 yrs old kid and it won’t create any harm. Please check and advise.

  14. With use of Baidyanath Smritisagar Ras along with Baidyanath Yogendra ras, Brovobol under supervision of Ayurvedic Practitioner (MD-Ayurved), our Child (15 years) got detected with Elevated Blood levels of Metals-Lead & Arsenic, degeneration of Muscles (elevated levels of CPK & CK-MB, Phosphorous) noticed. Are these Ayurvedic Medicines not prepared with strict Quality Control or will there be any other reason ?. Please guide us.

    • Hi, the doctor should be careful while prescribing 2 or more medicines with metallic content.
      Dose might have been higher than required.
      There are also chances of lack of quality control.

      • N. Krishna says:

        Sir, i did Forensic testing & found all high levels of Lead, Aluminium & Tin. Mainly Navjivanras has 95000 ppmof Arsenic against Ayush permitted 3 ppm..

        • Very unfortunate to know.
          Usual norm with any medicine with heavy metal ingredient is to prescribe only one medicine and that too for a limited period of 4 – 6 weeks time, taper the dose and stop.

          • N. Krishna says:

            Respected Sir,
            Just to compare, i have given the same “Navjivan Rasa” of 2 more companies (Vyas Pharma & Navjivan Pharma; while prevoius one is from Unjha Ayurvedic) to Forensic Lab & the Results are awaited .

            • N. Krishna says:

              Also rising doubts that Ayurvedic Medicines must be prepared in Mud Pots. But, i tested 7 medicines so far including Herbal Ashwagadha (Organic), etc. just because of my Child situation. All products including pure organic have shown very high Aluminium in Forensic testing.

              Anyadha Saranam Naasthi. Twameva Saranam Mama. We have no options left for our Ataxia Child… But now, scared of Ayurvedic tooo… Please Save us…

            • Please let me know the results. If you wish, you may please forward the lab test report to my email as well –

              I am not a big person to bring drastic changes. But I can surely discuss and spread the word and awareness among hundreds of Ayurveda doctors, I am close with. This could bring a minor but significant change in the way, an Ayurveda doctor prescribes.

              Thanks for taking the pain.
              Sorry for all the inconveniences caused (on behalf of total Ayurveda community).
