  1. Dr Hebber ,
    Prasarinyadi Kashayam +Gandha tailam and Kokilakasham Has been prescribed for Acute Siatica will it help promptly .

  2. I have frozen shoulder and tendonitis. Doctor has advised me to take Prasarinyadi kwatham 2-0-2 and Yograj guggul 2-0-2 on empty stomach 30 min before food. But it causes gastritis. Is it okay to take this after food? or is there some logic why it shud b taken empty stomach.
