There is a slight difference between Pathyadi Kadha and Pathyadi Kashaya. The Kashaya is the plain water decoction, as explained above. But the Kadha is a fermented product, where they add jaggery and Dhataki flower(fermenting agent) to the water decoction and ferment it to a period of 1 month.

Pathyadi Kwath Ghanavati is the same water decoction (kashaya) in tablet form, the dose of it is – 2 tablets 2 times a day before food.

  1. Dear Dr. Hebbar, I want to order Pathyadi Kwath Ghanavati online. Can you please suggest which company produces this tablets?

  2. Dear Dr., Pathyaksha Dhathrayadhi kashayam and Pathyadhi kashayam have exactly one and the same ingredients according to your web site. Pathyaksha dhathrayadhi kashayam is supposed to balance Vata & Pitta. But here in Pathyadhi kashayam it is mentioned for Tridosha as Vata & Kapha. I was just wondering when ingredients are exactly the same, which one is correct. Currently I am using Pathyadhi kashayam and wanted to know which Doshas it would balance. Kindly clarify sir.

  3. Hello doctor, I was prescribed pathyadi kadha by doctor for migraine. I bought it from a brand called Sandu and I realised it contains parabens as preservative. Should I continue with the medicine or skeptical to consume it, please help.
