  1. Dear Dr.,

    Will Kaisora guggulu tablets benefit eyes condition like “Eye floaters” (without flashes of light)?

    Thank you.

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Usually eye floaters are quite common and no need to worry. But if you are seeing eye floaters all the time, or if there is any blindness issue, then consulting an eye doctor looks a better idea. I really doubt if Kaishora guggulu can help with this condition.

  2. Aekta Bhatt says:

    Hello Sir,

    I want to know that is there any side effect of kaisora guggula?

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      There are no side effects with the prescribed dose.
      In a very high dose, than prescribed, it may worsen gastritis. But it is just a temporary side effect.

  3. sir,
    please let me know if kaishore guggul cures corn on feet.I have been advised by a doctor to take this medicine 3 times a day for one month.

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      The doctor might have had his experience in treating corn with kaishora Guggulu.Please go with his advice. Regards

      Yes, to some extent. But there are still better medicine for periods cramps. Consult your doctor.

      Kaishora is derived from Kishora. Meaning, young. This helps to make the body young, it rejuvenates, etc.

  6. Sir,

    If Not please tell me which wyurvedic medicine can cure it.

  7. Does Kaishora capsules have to be taken with warm milk. I am suffering from Plantar fasciitis and just started on the capsules.

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Usually it is not administered with milk. But if your doctor has advised it with milk, then there should be some good reason.

  8. Dear Sir,
    I am suffering from urticaria and have just started on the capsules. I am taking two capsules three times a day, but i am not aware of how long i should be taking these capsules.

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Please go ahead as per the suggestion of your Ayurveda doctor.
      Generally, this medicine is good for long term use (2 – 3 months).

  9. Is it helpful to take Kaishore Guggulu for blood purification purposes? For example, how does it compare to taking Hamdard safi?

    • Also, is this generally safe to take without doctor’s recommendation?

      • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

        Excluding children, pregnant and lactating mothers, anyone else can take this safely for 15 days. But as a general note, why try with some medicine without consulting a doctor?

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      It depends on the disease process involved.
      If it is purely a skin disorder involving blood, Safi could be the choice.
      If it involves Rasa, Rakta, Mamsa, Meda and Asthi (any 2 – 3 of these), It makes sense to go for Kaishore Guggulu.

  10. padmavathy.M. says:

    It will reduce the cholestrol

  11. hi,
    I am suffering from thyroid and eye buldging but nt getting any remedy

  12. Respected doctor you need to see this link. The lesson seems to be that you need to choose the companies from which you buy ayurvedic medicines really carefully. I have now decided to only go with Arya Vaidya Sala Kotakkal.



    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Hi, Not only Kottakkal, but companies like AVN conduct heavy metal analysis before exporting Ayurvedic products. Moreover, some Ayurvedic products contain certain heavy metals by design, which are used after purification procedures as told in traditional Ayurveda textbooks.
