  1. Namaste Sir, There is a treatment named Kshara Sutra for Grade 2 haemorrhoids. Do consult a Doctor for the same.

  2. If kutaj beej is prescribed for inducing vomitting, then how it is helpful in relieving vomitting? why its called as Vamihara?

  3. Hi, Kutajarishta dose is – 15 ml, twice a day after food. If it is too difficult to take, then add 15 ml of water to it before taking.

  9. नमस्कार श्री मान जी,

    मुझे पिछले 2 महीनों में पेट से पीड़ित था

    1. मुझे कुछ समय की तरह बहुत अनियमित आंत है, मुझे 2 बार कुछ समय 3 या 2 के लिए जाना है। स्रोली पानी की तरह नहीं है
    3 .. मुझे लगता है कि मेरे जिगर बहुत सुस्त हैं, चयापचय दर बहुत कम है, मेरा वजन बहुत तेजी से बढ़ रहा है, लेकिन व्यायाम या आहार के वजन के कारण बहुत धीमी गति से कम हो रहा है,

    कृपया सहायता कीजिए

    मैंने कुतेज घन वटी और कुत्तेज अरशेट लेना शुरू कर दिया।

    कृपया सुझाव दे

  10. Hello sir,

    I have ulcerative colitis. It’s been 2 months.

    Thank you.

  11. Sir, I feel some swelling and mild pain in lower left side of my stomach. Also my stomach is not clear at one go. I have to go to loo two to three times a day. Sometimes there is cramping in full stomach. Pls suggest me some good ayurvedic medicine. Can Kutajghan vati be effective?

  12. Sir..you are very wrong when you said it can be used for 2 3 months safely. If it is used for more than 15-20 days it seriously disrupt d the probiotic balance..I have experienced it many times..it should be used for 2-4 days only whenever required

  14. I was told by a doctor that i have malabsorption, i was mulethi powder and got diarrhea so he asked me to take this Kutajghan vati, now since i took, i going loo for long more frequently like 8 times a day.
    What shall i do?

  15. I have very weak digestion due to which my stools are loose. But when I take kutajarishta, it gives me more loose stools. Why it is giving me opposite results.
