    • There is slight difference. THough the names are used interchangedly.
      One variety is used in treating teeth disorders, bad breath.
      The other is used in treating cough and cold.

  1. is there any type of tobacco content in any form in khadiradi gutika. because its name sounds like it has gutka.

  2. My eife has Sjogren’s syndrome since 7 year. Very limited saliva is produced cauding dryness in throat, tongue, eye and skin. Will the massage of any oil is useful to reactivate salivary gland- mukesh joshi

  3. you can try khadiradi vati. there are lot more treatments in Ayurveda like gandusha and kavalagraha, which are beneficial for your problem when done with appropriate medicine. for this it is better if you contact an efficient Ayurveda doctor and get treated.

  4. Hello Sir,
    Simple and effective home remedies for bleeding gums:
    Take a cotton swab and dip it in clove oil. Gently rub on the gums for a minute or two.
    The tender leaves of guava or jamun(blue berry) is taken and crushed well. This is kept in the mouth and chewed. It promotes the strength of the gums.
    The flowers of hibiscus and ixora are taken in equal quantities. To this, 2 pinch of yashtimadhu powder is added and pounded well to obtain a slimy paste. This is retained in the mouth for 20-30 minutes. It strengthens the gums and arrests the bleeding from the gums.
    Make water decoction (Kashaya) from Triphala and use this for mouth rinsing and gargling twice a day.

    • Edible form of camphor is used for medicinal purpose in Ayurveda since thousands of years. Hence, Khadiradi vati is safe. I have not noted any camphor poisoning case caused due to usage of Khadiradi vati.

  6. sir i have tonsillitis from more then one month. it’s really very painfull but i have no problm in swallowing.how much time chronic tonsillitis takes to cure….???

  7. Hello,

    Caraka Cikit 26.207 mentions this as effective for various teeth conditions, cavities, tartar, etc, and names it an excellent medicine for all affections of the teeth, the mouth, and the throat. Specifically for teeth, since commercial formulas vary, do you have a recommendation of which brands are preferable? I can find Zandu but there are quite a few herbs missing and I’m not sure if some are needed for teeth. Vicco tooth powder looks to be another formula fairly close to it. Any opinions about which might be better?

  8. Hello Sir,

    I am having food infection(wheat and some other vegitables), due to that in every two months or on seasonal change I am having severe throat infection.
    How much quantity should I take Khadiradi Vati.
    1 tablet 3 times a day or 2 tablets 3 times a day?
    Can it be swallowed with water or it has to be chewed ?
    And how much months should I continue taking medicine 1 month or 2 months ?
    What food should I avoid during this period ?
    Is there any permanent cure for food infection(Wheat) ?

    • Thank You Very much for the reply.

      I took Patanjali Khadiradi Vati for a week 5 tablets a day and Giloy 2 tablet a day.
      Throat infection is gone and my throat is good now, but I got a side effect of skin irritation when I stopped taking both tablet skin irritation is gone. Can it be due to Khadiradi Vati or Giloy?

      Can you please suggest a good Ayurveda doctor in Ahmedabad, Gujarat.


  9. Thanks. I am from thrissur, Kerala. I am already consulting an ayurvedic doctor when needed. But I didn’t consult him for Bad breath. I need to get rid of bad breath. Rest ok. Hope khatiradi vati helps to keep breath fresh.
