  12. Hello everyone,
    I am a regular user “every 6 Months” of Ichhabhedi ras tablet and what I have noticed is that untill I drink cold water or Buttermilk it increases and as soon u think system is clean I drink Tea and the loose motion stop like instant, That is my observation from last 8 Years, I use to take 1 tablet for first year and I take 2 Tablets and go to sleep at 10:00 PM and by 4 the cleaning starts and by 6-6:30 I am free. So I would say take it on your own risk, If you panic easily don’t even think of it also.

  13. I am going to take this medicine for virechana panchkarma therapy. Since you mentioned this medicine contains mercury, I want to know will it cause any problem or side effects in the long term due to mercury accumulation in the body? Also pls mention the correct procedure of virechana.

  17. My ayurvedic doctor recommended ichchabedi ras for total scalp hair loss (autoimmune). Is it too harsh? will it cause permanent marks from irritation and bumps?
    he also prescribed systemic medication in addition

  18. Please don’t use ichhavedi ras or you will be very serious patient after using it. I have personal experience of it. After using thot your Colon will be straight and whatever you eat will come out as loose motion.your energy will be go to negative and then if you don’t take medicine you will be die. I get a new life and have an experience of having use it. So please don’t use this. your life is more important than constipation.
