    I’m(36yrs) in a treatment of depression for the last 3years… First one year I took english medicine and ayurveda medicine through my Ayurveda doctor who is practicing as Clinical psychologist. And he prescribed me one tea spoon Panchagavya Grhita with warm milk before going to sleep..And i was feeling good.
    As I shifted different location now I’m consulting and continuing english medicine with a Psychiatrist for the last two years.Now I’m feeling much better.
    My query is after left from my Ayurveda doctor i was continued Panchagavya but not regularly.Now also I’m having Panchagavya once 3 months or 2.
    Dr, Is it ok for me to continue Panchagavya without consulting Ayurveda Doctor.? And get the benefit of this in regular use?
    Expecting reply.
    Warm regards,

    First of all, many thanks. I´ve started taking Panchavya and I have a question about the way to keep it once you have opened It. May I keep in the fridge or I must keep outside? I mean, If you keep ii n the fridge some effects are gone?
