    • It contains virechak (purgative) drugs like haritaki thus removes vitiated pitta.But physician should take care of anupana in pitta prakruti patients.It corrects Ama dosha of body by correcting Agni.

      • Dr Hebber & dr jitendra , i am m45 , i have been asked to take vaiswanaram chooran with luke warm water & i am pitta prakruti with my pitta being kind of super vitiated for a very long time (abt 25+ yrs now)now. I wish to ask wat better anupana is thr for people like me. I have liver issues for same time now ,pls advise

        • Dear Harmeet,
          You can add gau ghrut(cow’s ghee ) as anupana or you can consult to your physician.

          • Mahatiktak ghrit is good for vitiated pitta,but take churna separately with gau ghrit just add to make paste and drink Luke warm water with it or consult to your physician

  1. Hi, if you have got all the ingredients, then make a combination with equal parts and take it half a teaspoon after food in the morning for a month time.
    To identify each ingredient, just do a google image search.

  2. Dear Hebbar Sir,

    I have hyper acidity, gastritis and erosive duodenitis, heavy bloating and flatulence. I have been prescribed a proton pump inhibitor, pantoprazole by Gastroenterologist. Gastroscopy and culture didnt show H-Pylori infection or any inflammatory sign but only erosions. Same time I also suffer from ama dosha related diseases like joint pains, muscle spasm and fatigueness day time sluggishness, spine related pain (cervical and lumbar), sciatica, have elevated URIC ACID. no gout. Now I undergo ayurvedic treatment and take AMRUTHOTHARAM KASHAYAM, Cap CRQ and Shaddharana Gulika. Is my AMA related problem due to improper digestion, agnimandhyam??. Why I have so much of gastric problem then due to acidity? Is increased acidity means increased digestive power? I have been advised to take vaiswanarachurnam in luke warm water at bed time.
    Thanks in advance for your kind reply at the earliest.
