  2. Sir,
    I am facing drug induced sensorial severe hearing loss due to TB Injection AMICACIN.( Aminoglycoside ) .Besides hearing loss , facing tinnitus and imbalance.

    Dropping two drops of BILWA TAIL in both the ears ALONG WITH intake of SARIWADI VATI daily twice -morning and Evening. will this redress my problem.

    I am willing to personally consult you if you have a good remedy available for redressal of the above problem

  3. Dear Sir,

    I have had middle ear blockage in right ear, not clearing up thru eustachian tube. Constant heaviness felt and also negative pressure in middle ear.. The thick substance in middle ear causes blocking and unblocking – muffled hearing and clear hearing based on head movement. Very annoying. I have had nasya with not much effect.

    Kindly advise if bilva taila can be safely tried for a month or two?

    Best regards,
