  1. Whether or not Ajmodadi Churna can be taken with Sinhnaad Guggul as both are meant for Aam Vaat / Sandhi Vaat, etc? Would they be counter to each other?

  2. Is yograj guggul/singhnad which one is better for RA patient.also pl.suggest role of Gold swarnamahayog tb by Dhootpapeshwer.

    • Both Yogaraja guggulu and Sinhanada guggulu are equally beneficial in RA. Sinhanada is more beneficial if there is more stiffness.
      Swarnamahayog is usually used in combination with dashamoolarishta, Maharasnadi kadha etc for pain and inflammation management.

  3. Is there any alternative medicine in tablet form for maharasnadi kadha.it is prescribed as co drink with sinhanada guggul.

  4. Is there any treatment or medicine which restores fused joints space due to aamvaat so that deformity could b corrected and joint replacement(hip n knee) surgery could be avoided.

  5. Dear Doctor,
    It is said that Ajamodadi churna increases the Pitta and hence not recommended people with hyper acidity and gastric problems etc.
    What adjuvant medicine can be used along with Ajamodadi churna by such people to avoid the excess Pitta
    Can Drakshadi Kashayam be used with Ajamodadi churna?
    Please guide
