  1. My Dr. Recomended for my Blood pressure, so do you want me to discontinue or is there any side effects to use this?? please advice

  2. Hi Dr. Hebbar,

    It states above: Effect on Dosha: Balances Kapha

    Is this correct? I would have thought it would balance the aspect of Pitta found in the blood, but that’s just my amateur guess, as I know only the bare basics of Ayurveda.
