  3. Panchatikta Guggulu Ghrita ( ghee form ) and Panchatikta Ghrita Guggulu (tablet ) same or not

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Hi, both have similar ingredients.
      But the amount of ghee in the tablet is less when compared to ghee.
      For a high cholesterol guy, tablet is preferred.
      For others, ghee is the best option. But some can not tolerate the bitter taste. For them, tablet can be given.

  4. Aleksandr says:

    as far as I know classical dosage of kashayam i.e. kwath is not 12 ml (one karsha) but 96 ml, TWO PALA. Refference – Sharangadhara Samhita. What is your refference for 12 ml, please?

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Hi, Dravya Guna Vijnana mentions –
      Kwathasya madhyama matra pala maanaa prakeertitaa |
      So, medium dose is 48 ml per day.
      24 ml in the morning and 24 in evening.
      The market available kashayams are concentrated. so, 12 ml of kashayam + 12 ml of water per dose.

      However, the dose is also dependent upon the patient’s strength, age, level of Dosha imbalance etc.
