    • Hi, in a patient of Thalassemia minor, if he is diagnosed with low iron content, only then, iron containing Ayurvedic products such as Punarnava Mandur, Lohasavam etc can be given. If Iron levels are normal, then these strictly, should be avoided. Because, Thalassemia patients usually will have free iron in their blood, which may get increased and lead to iron overload, if they are supplemented with above products, which may result in tissue damage, growth retardation, heart attack etc. So, Iron level examination is a must.

  1. Hi, you will need to consult a doctor directly.

    • Hello Madam, Would strongly advise you to take a consult before taking any over the counter medication because As we all are genetically different with different constitutions and patterns, we respond to treatments in many different ways. Hence Standard Ayurvedic Treatments are always individually formulated.

  4. In punarnavadi mandoor which iron is prepared (ferus femurate of ferus sulphate or ferus ascorbate). What % H.b. level increased.

  5. Can punarnava mandur vati be used as a muscle relaxant, esp. tightness felt across the stomach area and the ribcage? Usually, this goes away in a few days with homeopathy, but I was looking for an ayurvedic classical formulation or some herbal powder or combination of herbal powders.
    If punarnava mandur is not suitable for muscle relaxation, then what other classical or herbal medicine is there in ayurveda?
    In the western herbal system, there are very good herbs for this purpose – herbs like Chamomile flower, Passionflower, Cramp bark, Kava Kava, Hops, Catnip, Black haw, Lavendor, Valerian and many others. But these herbs are not available in India.

      • Do you know of any safe classical ayurvedic formulation that would be a strong muscle relaxant. It should be able to remove the tightness felt across stomach/rib cage along with lower muscular backache. Normally tightness across stomach/rib cage is accompanied by lower backache.
