        • Hi, Stop Pushyanuga and give Raja Pravartini vati tablet -1 tablet 2 times a day for 15 days. Even with that, if periods do not start, then you will have to consult another Ayurveda doctor directly.
          Please continue with Triphala and Dhanvantari pills.

  1. I have been taking a dosage of 5 gms with honey for two mnths now. I had a scanty period of one day during my ntnal period date. Is it because of the churnam?

  2. pusyanug has practically no side effect. the reason for not having the side effect is formulation planning i.e. according to ayurvedic principles of “प्रयोगं शमयेत्‌ व्याधि न च अन्यमुदिरयेत्‌”

    • Hi, as pushyanuga churna possess all the pungent properties and acts as haemostatic and guduchi having rejuvenating property together may definitely give good result for rakthathisara or ulcerative colitis. But before doing any trial it is always better to get advice of an Ayurvedic doctor near to you.

  5. it should not be taken for longer period of time, since it may cause irregular menstrual periods. it should be taken only when the flow or secretions are more, after that it has to be stopped. there are other medicines which are to be given along with this to cure the condition, which are to be continued till the time advised by your doctor. self medication is not advisable.
