  1. For me acidity usually flares up after eating food. But doctor had recommended having this once a day half an hour before dinner. Is this the best dosage for this medicine? Also I’m taking Kottakkal Brahmi caps once a day before breakfast. Does brahmi increase acidity.

  2. Does the motion get dark after using this together with Vilwadi Leham ,drakshadiKwatham and indukantam kwatham

  3. Water infused with Tulasi leaves was suggested as one of the remedies to keep the stomach cool. However, isn’t Tulasi warm by nature??

    • If it is cold water – 1 cup with just 2 – 3 leaves of Tulsi, the coldness of water, will nullify the hotness of Tulsi leaves. So, good to use.
      If the tulsi leaves are more in number, then the overall effect of the infusion will be hot.

  4. Parushakadi Leham and Vilvathi Lehiyam

    Whis acts best for Stomach ULCER and it’s pain Doctor?
    Kindly brief the difference of both. Please.
