  1. Hi,

    Can you please tell if it is safe to take panchamitra parpati while staying on the normal diet. Or I’ve to stop eating food and go on takra diet for a particular period of time(also known as parpati kalpa) to cure my disease.

    I suffer from grahani disease for past 10 years.

  2. From what I’ve read in books it’s said panchamrit parpati should only be taken by kalpa method. A person should go on a fast with only buttermilk as the primary diet for 50 to 60 days.

    Can we also take this medicine along with normal food as written in your article.

      • Thank you.
        I have been prescribed panchamrit parpati 125mg + 125mg kravyad ras + 250mg buttermilk.
        Initially it was undigestable – all milk products. Now they are digested but leads to a lot of sleep, disorientation and weakness. Will consult my doctor soon .
