  1. Can murivenna be used for neck sprains, back sprains etc. One of my friends told me that when she gets a lower back pain, she applies a mix of murivenna and dhanwantaram thailam to get relief. Is it really benefiicial when this combination is used?

  4. I have pain in my right upperhand and right shoulder and I have been applying Murivenna for the last one week. But still the pain persists. It looks like it may take its own time to get it cured Murivenna or not. It is a fake medicine. Most of the ayurvedic medicines takes long time to heal by which time the disease will be automatically cured. Either the medicines are fake or the ingredients used are fake and toxic.

    • if the medicine don’t work on a condition or it delays cure it doesn’t mean the medicine is fake. please go with either karpooradi tailam or mahanarayana tailam for your condition.

    • Hello Sir, You can use Maha Narayan taila for the massage.
      The massage technique is as follows:
      Everyday morning, 20 minutes before bath, sit on a chair.
      Apply the oil over the entire ankle and feet.
      If possible, make a paste of garlic (25 grams), castor leaves (50 grams) and camphor (5-10 grams) – apply it over the heels. Leave it for 10 minutes. If all the three are not available, paste made of any two is good to use.
      Take a hot water tub and dip your legs in it for 3 minutes.
      Then go ahead and have bath.

      Precaution: When you apply oil to feet, you tend to slip and fall. So, walk carefully and be slow.
