With so much metals and age of my father, should there be additional medicine to consider not to impact his Kidneys or BP significantly?- Srikanth

    • Hi, considering the age of your father, I would have reduced the dose to a tablet per day. Usually this is given along with other herbal products. But because of your father’s age and condition, it is not very ideal to seek online advice. Please consult an Ayurveda doctor directly.

    • Sir, I read an article on osteoporosis and took ‘Brihat vat chintamani’ along with swarm makshika, praval pistol, godanti bhasm, giloya SAT. But when I was mixing these powders, in last I mixed 1 GM pouch of brihat vat chintamani’. At last when I saw that some powder has remained inside the pouch’s wall, I cut it and used it with honey( I thought why should waste such a costly medicine, I didn’t think that such a small amount of this medicine might cause severe and consistent pain in my brain that hasn’t cured even after taking pain killers.) I didn’t take any other dose except that one and last dose. Please provide me guidance so I can get rid this pain and fear of any mishappening. I couldn’t tell this to my parents, they don’t accept Ayurvedic treatment for some reasons. I am afraid to tell them. Because I took only one dose (there was not enough on the pouch wall), I hope it will be recovered. Please at least give me such advice or guidance that I can get rid of this fear and is there any possibility to recover from this problem without any physical loss.
      Thank you.
