  1. Hello, my doctor has prescribed kalyana kshara for PCOD. A pinch of it with sukumara lehyam. But your website doesn’t mention anything about kalyana ksharam’s uses in treating menstruation related diseases. Can you please throw some light on this? Thanks.

  2. Hi.. It is said that this medicine shouldn’t be consumed during pregnancy. Will it affect chances of getting pregnant or Will or impact the feutus. Do we have to stop this if we plan for a kid.

    • Hi, Kshara medicines including Kalyana Kshar have very piercing and scraping action. Hence, this might be useful to root out facial hair. Unless you feel you observe any scars or feel burning sensation, the said treatment is good to continue.

  3. I take this but now I feel some high pain in my hand which had a multiple injury 5 years back. Is there any connection …. Dr.
