  1. Can Mahalaxmi vilas ras SHIRO be given to 2 years 7 month old kid along with sitopaladi churan? Mixture of both medicine and giving one pinch 3 times a day, please advise.

  2. Hello doc, I was detected hiatus hernia 3yrs back. 6mons back I had pleural effusion/Tb in my right side of the lungs. I finished 6mons course of tb medicines. Presently I am using medicines for acidity and multivitamin and calcium tab. I was suggested to use mahalakshmi vilas ras gold to avoid relapse of tb in future by my friend. Kindly suggest me.

  3. The potency of turmeric is hot and hence it should always be boiled in milk and used. In case the milk is not suitable, it should be boiled with water adding little coriander power to pacify the turmeric heat. Secondly, turmeric takes longer time to digest and hence when using turmeric as a medicine, the patient should be advised to take little black pepper or ginger along with turmeric for quick digestion. Hope this information is helpful to you and others as well.
