  1. ArchanaDhanabal says:

    I want to know more about this Kanchanara guggulu formulation. Please suggest my request…

  2. Does it work on enlarge liver and enlarged prostate. With regards.yous v.p.arya

  3. Kriskumar says:

    How good is for treatment for enlargeed prostate,what is the % of reducement of the gland.

    • It is used widely in the treatment of enlarged prostate. The percentage wise, it will be difficult to say. Enlarged prostate is usually seen in elders. who require to meet many parameters such as BP control, Diabetes control etc. In such a patient, to keep the enlargement under check, Kanchanara Guggulu is used. If you ask my experience, I would say, 20 % reduction in enlargement can be achieved.

  4. Is it also useful for weight loss ?

  5. Can it also reduce enlarged uterus?

    • No. I do not think that Kanchanara Guggulu alone would be effective enough to reduce the size of uterus.
      Please consult an Ayurveda specialist. A more comprehensive treatment appears required.

  6. if one has a small benign cyst, can it help? If so, how long does one have to take it for?

  7. Will this be helpful in PCOS ?

  8. can it be also used for reducing heavy and long menstrual periods?

  9. Can kanchanna gugullu reduce goiter (nodules)

  10. Hello Dr.,
    Your replies are quite helpful. Can this be used in treatment of Lipomas and how long one should take to see any difference?
    Thanks in advance.

  11. How long will it take to get rid of a goitre nodule 1″ in diamater

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      very difficult to guess. Some other medicines along with it may be required.

      • Currently I’m using kanchnara guggulu 300mg 1 tablet daily for 3 months now after breakfast. I have not seen any dramatic improvements so far. Can you advise how this is to be used for best effect and any other medicines/remedies which will assist the process. Many thanks

        • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

          The dose you are taking is way too low. For best results, take 2 tablets 2 times a day 10 minutes after food. You may feel a bit of stomach burning sensation. If so, revert back.
          Another reason – may be, your Kanchanara Guggulu might not be of good quality.
          For full analysis and treatment, it will be better if you consult a doctor directly. If you wish to consult me, fill up this form here – http://easyayurveda.com/contact-details

  12. does this treat endometrium polyps as well? if so, kindly advise dosage.
    thank you

  13. Dear doctor, this medicine is prescribed against uterine fibroids. But at the same time it may have pro-estrogenic effect. Won’t it make things worse then, because fibroids are caused by excessive estrogen?

  14. is this helpful in treating sarcoidosis, if so what dose or in any combination. i am the patient of sarcoidosis stage -1, please answer me, thank you

  15. Respected Doctor, I have a question Why expecting moms should not consume Kanchanara Guggulu ?

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      There is no hard and fast rule like that.
      BUT, Kanchakara Guggulu is something which reduces the size of cyst, nodule etc. so, it is not nourishing in nature, hence, to be on the safer side, it is best to avoid in expecting moms.

      • Is it true then that along with any Guggulu based medicine, other tonic (nourishing) medicines must also be taken (to counter the not-nourishing/detoxifying effect of Guggulu? Which of the Guggulu preparations are ‘complete’ i.e. don’t require additional nourishing herbs to be taken? Just looking for a general idea…

        • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

          It is not true. Only in a very weak patient, when higher dose of guggulu is required to be used, then only it can be said that some nourishing agents like milk can be used as adjuvant. Not in all cases. This rule should also be applied very selectively. For example, in Rheumatoid arthritis case, it is best to avoid milk and go ahead with guggulu tablet alone.


    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Yes, to some extent. But Doctor’s consultation is required. Some more efficient treatment / medicines might also be required. kanchanara Guggulu is surely one of the medicines used in the said conditions.

  17. Is kachnar effective in recurrent throat infection and tonsillitis with pus in 8 yrs child

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

  18. If yes then in what dosage for 8 yrs old kid in throat infection recurrent

  19. is Kanchnar guggul helpful to reduce nerves tumors. neurofibromitosis

  20. chunmun says:

  21. Dear SIr i have fistula and recently i traced my diabetes , my age is 34 now i am taking homeopathy , now my lymph node at armpit swelled . since 5 months no growth that can i use kanchanar guggulu , please suggest me

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Dear Ramesh, you have multiple complaints to look into. There is underlying infection to be treated. Being diabetes makes infection spread faster and it also delays the healing of fistula. I suggest you to consult your family physician immediately.

  22. R.Doctor,
    I am suffering from hypothyroidism since 2010 and taking thyrinorm 25 as adviced by the doctor but my TSH level always remain 6.4, please suggest appropriate dose as well as diet take and not to take.

  23. Hello Sir,
    In my physical checkup, I found my cholesterol high – 240 now. and also that I am anemic ferritin level is below <1, so I am also taking iron supplements but can I take kanchnar guggul when I am on Iron supplements? will that interfere with the Iron supplements ?
    Thanks for your time!!

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Dear Bhaskar,
      Kanchnar Guggulu will not interfere with absorption of Iron Supplement. In fact, because Kanchnar Guggulu contains Triphala, it helps in easy iron absorption.

  24. mehboob says:

    Dearpls. tell me dr. does it work in polycystic kidney disease.

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Yes it works. But for PCOS, it has to be a combination of Ayurvedic medicine and Panchakarma treatment, rather than a single medicine. Please consult an Ayurveda doctor directly. Regards

  25. Can it is helpful in treatment for men boobs or harmonal balance. I hav gout in my chest so it look like brest any treatment for this problem

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      It might not help in gynaecomastia due to hromonal imbalance. But it is useful in the treatment of gout.

      • what are the ayurvedic medicines available to treat gynecomastia?

        • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

          Hi, it is quite difficult to treat Ayurveda. If there is hormonal imbalance that can be corrected. If the mass is small in size then some exercise and muscle strength which would enhance the bulk of chest muscles and which would help in reducing the fat might help. If you wish to consult me, please click on contact button on top of this page.

  26. Hello sir,
    I am suffering from hodgkins lymphoma.
    Will kanchnar guguul be helpful ? Have heard it is useful in cleaning out lymph nodes.

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      It might help to some extent. But please consult an Ayurveda doctor in person for a detailed checkup and advice.

  27. Hello,

    I am fighting with an anal fistula and I am taking kanchnar guggulu since like 6 weeks now. I also have quite some big muscle nods and very stiff muscles in general. My question is. For how long does it make sense to take kanchnar guggulu because I feel a positive effect on my issues but its not at the point where I can say that the fistula or the muscle nods are gone. Does it make sense to improve the dose (I am taking 2 tabs 2 times a day)? Are there negative effects from taking too much, like problems with absorption of food? Or should I just stop taking it when i feel that my issues are gone (my sinus is almost completely healed)

    Thank you very much, its an awesome product

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Hi, you are already on moderate to high dose of Kanchanara Guggulu. I would continue the same dose for another month and then would have reduced it to 3 tabs per day for next 6 weeks. There are no big side effects with this, other than gastric complaints. But I’d best to avoid during pregnancy. The muscle nodes might not go away completely with this.

  28. Why we are not suppose to use it during Pregnancy? is it ok to use till the time pregnancy is confirmed?

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      It can be taken till the pregnancy is confirmed. But once after confirmation, it is better to avoid taking it further. It is used in reducing the size of cyst etc. hence there is an assumption that it may not be ideal for the fetus health.

  29. I have glands (lypoma) all over my body..specially on my hands and chest. will kanchnar guggulu help me get rid of lypoma? what is the recommended dose?

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Recommended dose is 1 – 2 tablets 2 – 3 times a day.
      However, its efficacy in lipoma management is not very well established.

  30. Silambarasan says:

    I have N number of small small “Warts” in my face. 1 Ayurveda doctor in Trivandrum prescribed me this Kanchanara Gulgulu Gulika 2-0-2 for 15 days. is it right prescribtion for warts? or Is there any Ayurvedic medicine?

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Kanchanara guggulu is one of the medicines used in wart treatment. Please follow your Ayurveda doctor’s advice.

  31. Hi Dr.

What are the chances of Kanchnar Guggulu in treating hyperthroidism? Do you know of any cases where this herb did not work to reduce hyperthyroidism?Thank you.

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Kanchanara Guggulu might not be sufficient as a standalone medicine for hyperthyroidism. Please consult an Ayurveda doctor in person.

      • Can you use it for hypothyroidism? And do you need to consult doctor before using Ayurvedic medicine?

        • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

          Hi, This is one of the medicines used in treating Hypothyroidism. But it is not a standalone medicine to treat it. Hence, a doctor’s advice is required.

  32. Dr Hebbar, what anupans would you think best with Kanchanar Guggulu Churna and Maha Sudarshan Churna guiding to thyroid?

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:


      • urvashi says:

        what is the benefit of Kachnar gugglu in respect of oral cancer? I am aware of a patient of oral cancer using this herb as medicine & its effective in his case. Is it related to stages of cancer?

        • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

          At the best it may help in reducing the cancer growth. This theory is based on its usage in cysts and fibroids. But there is no research data to back it’s usage in cancer.

          • Hi

            My ayurvedic dr has suggested kachnar guggul along with other medicines for hypothyroidism and infertility.
            I am a female of 30 yrs.
            He has said for maximum effect, chew 2 tablets twice daily after food. I wanted to know whether it is important to chew or can I swallow it with water?
            I chewed it once but I didn’t like the taste at all.

  48. edith mwanje says:

    i have fibroids in my uterus i started taking kanchnar guggul two months sometimes i feel like its helping and times my tummy is bloated is there reasons for feeling like that? how shall i keep taking them for.

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      It happens because it contains Trikatu – which are spices. Take it soon after meals. This will reduce their effect on the stomach, hence the bloating will be reduced.

  49. Yogesh Mangal says:

    Is surgery only alternative for enlarged prostate for people who are on allopathic medication or ayurved can still benefit

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Ayurvedic medicines reduce the size of the prostate to some extent. But if the gland has increased in size to a big extent, surgery is the best option.

  50. will this help in reducing Piles? I was given ArshKalph and Kanchanar Guggulu together. By reading all the posts, I don’t think Kanchanar Guggulu has any connection with Piles treatment. Please advise. I would better stop a medicine which is not required.

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      It is not directly indicated in piles treatment. By it would help in improving digestion and to some extent shrinking of piles mass

    • Dr Malini Bhat says:

      Hello Madam, Would like to know for which symptom you are taking the above mentioned drugs.

      • Hello m’am!
        I’ve been taking triphala guggul, aarogyavardhini vati and chandraprabha vati for a month. I’m taking them for weight loss and irregular periods. My periods are regular now and I’ve lost 3 kgs of weight. My mom suggested me to take kanchanar guggul to lose weight faster since she has dramatically lost weight with it. So, I just wanted to make sure whether it is safe to take these meds together.
        I’ll be so grateful if you’ll answer.

        • Dr Malini Bhat says:

          Hello madam, Hope you are under medical supervision while taking the medicines you have mentioned above. kanchnar Guggulu is Useful in treating goitre (nodules of neck), tumors and extra growths and not for weight loss exactly.

          Note: As we all are genetically different with different constitutions and patterns, we respond to treatments in many different ways. Hence Standard Ayurvedic Treatments are always individually formulated. For specific treatment, always consult with a qualified Ayurvedic physician.
