One of the peculiar feature of Amla is, its qualities blend in with other ingredients. For example, jaggery is sweet and has Pitta balancing effect. When you give jaggery processed with Amla, it further enhances its Pitta balancing effect. This simple principle is used in the following traditional Ayurvedic home remedy.

What you need? 

  • Amla churna (Amla powder) – 25 grams (1 part)
  • water – 200 ml (8 parts)
  • Jaggery – 3 – 5 grams

Take Amla powder in a wide mouthed container, add water to it, boil in mild heat, stir continuously and reduce it to approximately 50 ml, filter it, allow it to cool it down.

It can be taken before food for maximum effect.
It can be taken once or twice a day.

Once you prepare it, it can be stored for only one day. Means, everyday, you need to make the home remedy afresh.
It can be taken upto 2 – 3 weeks for good results.
It should not be re-heated.

Note:
The above mentioned method of boiling amla with water is Kashayam. Usually all Kashayams are given when they are mild hot. But here, we are letting it cool down, before taking it.

  1. Doctor, thanks for this tip. it’s come at the right time—onset of hot summer months.

  2. Its always handy to know about home remedies for excessive body heat.

    But what about less body heat, people like me who always feel cold and cannot take any A/C in summer.

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Will cover those home remedies in future.
      But in general, it really helps to take Trikatu Churna – quarter a small spoon two times a day after food. And it is good to take Chyawanprash regularly. But care should be taken if someone has gastritis problem, while taking Trikatu.

      • Kunwar Singh says:

        Will one tea spoon home made turmeric powder boiled in a glass of milk and added with three drops of ghee could be an effective home remedy in enhancing immune system and treating infections of HIV patients if given to drink daily on a regular basis? Please provide your valuable suggestions on this matter and oblige.

        • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

          It is mainly useful in relieving respiratory and skin allregies. It, of course boosts immunity and ‘might’ help in HIV patients. But it can be said as a sure shot remedy for HIV patients. But it is useful to improve immunity. Yes.

  3. esochi60 says:

    Other herbs used for burning urination include Sandalwood, Coriander, Punarnava …

    • Kunwar Singh says:

      Drinking boiled barley water and decoction (kadha) consisting cumin (jeera), coriander (dhaniya) and fennel (saunf) seeds is also helpful in the above condition. As there are many effective herbs for urinary track infections and burning urination but practically it is not possible for everyone to arrange them and take to treat their sufferings. People prefer to take pills to avoid time consuming process to preparing such kadhas.

      • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

        There is a huge advantage in making these kashayams (Kadha / kwath) at home rather than going for readymade pills.
        1. It is time consuming. So is cooking, making tea, coffee etc. Just because hotel serves readymade food, we do not go to hotel on daily basis.
        2. Of all the Ayurvedic medicines, Kashayam is fastest and most efficient dosage form.
        3. Kashayam contains water soluble active principles of herbs. Water soluble principles are readily absorbed into our body system via gastro intestinal tract.
        4. Kashayam – freshly prepared is as sterile and hygienic as boiled water.
        5. kashayams do not contain any additives like preservatives, as in case of pills.
        6. Even the aroma coming out of the vessel of Kashayam has positive effect.
        7. When one learns more about Ayurveda, the secret of success in Ayurvedic treatment lies in preparing medicines in the most traditional way, than compared to industrialized large scale methods.
        8. I will be posting a wide variety of home remedies for many ailments. Whichever is suitable, whichever herbs are available, readers can adopt them based on convenience and advice of Ayurvedic doctor.

  4. what r the benefits of haldhi doodh (turmeric and milk with ghee) and how it should be taken

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      It helps improve immune system, relieves respiratory allergy and is good for skin.
      A pinch of turmeric with three drops of ghee, early morning, with half a glass of warm milk can be taken. or
      a pinch of turmeric can be mixed with warm milk. Add two drops of ghee into milk, mix and drink. Warm milk only should be used for this purpose.

    • Kunwar Singh says:

      Boil half tea spoon home made turmeric powder in a glass of milk and add three drops of cow’s ghee. Stir milk with the help of table spoon and drink daily at breakfast time if possible or else drink the same on alternate days to manage allergic conditions, cancer treatment, blood purification and skin beautification. Turmeric also helps to heal wounds and it enhances immunity. Turmeric powder If taken with milk at night, it helps to relieve muscle and joints pain caused by vata dosha.

      • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

        Just a clarification here – Turmeric is hot in nature.

        • Kunwar Singh says:

          Dear Dr Hebbar,

          Since turmeric is hot in nature, it should never be consumed alone as it will heat up the liver and make the organ dry. Care should be taken to consume turmeric powder in small quantity with milk and coolant herbs like coriander and fennel so that it normalizes the heating effect of turmeric. To consume turmeric for various health benefits, I would suggest that turmeric powder should be consumed safely in the manner described below:

          Boil one tea spoon home made turmeric powder along with half tea spoon crushed coriander seeds in a glass of milk. Stir milk with the help of a spoon after adding three drops of cow’s ghee (clarified butter) into the boiling milk and drink daily at breakfast time or else drink the same on alternate days. The quantity of turmeric powder to be consumed can be adjusted according to age.

          Take care and remain blessed with good health!

          Best regards,
          Kunwar Singh

  5. You said in the above post-“contraindications: Diabetes” for this kashayam. What should one do to cool body eat if he/she has Diabetes or pre-diabetes?
    D

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Good question. She can simply use the above remedy without sugar.
      Amla powder – half a teaspoon (small spoon) – once in morning and evening, before food is an excellent remedy for diabetics to relieve burning sensation. (or to cool the body).

  6. What are the main causes of Pitta…i was having gastric problems and i treated for GERD and it is somewhat ok. But now i am feeling increase in body temperature and burning sensation in eyes,palm and feet.
    whether these are the symptoms of pitta?

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      These are the symptoms of Pitta increase. Excess Sun exposure, eating hot, pungent, sour and salt food stuff, anger, are a few reasons for Pitta imbalance.

  7. Dr Ji,

    Are there any kashayams available at the ayurvedic stores for body heat ?

  8. Hello Sir, One of my friends suggested to take 1-2 tspns of Sugandhi pala(Saribha) which will help to reduce body heat. I have lot of body heat, will that help kidly Suggest?

  9. Sir, Is Mahatiktadi Gritham suitable for this problem of body heat, as one of friend is taking the same. I have a similar problem. Please advice Sir. Thank you.

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      It helps to calm Pitta and thus helps to reduce body heat.
      But do not take this just because your friend is taking. Your body type may be different from him. Consult a doctor directly for whatever your health issues.

  10. Thank you for your prompt reply reply Sir. Will be mailing you my case history and your fees for consultancy within a day or two.

  11. I have this problem that I cannot take sun for too long. If I spent more than 15-30 minutes, then after returning I’ll have weakness in the whole body, like a body ache (just like the weakness of fever, except in this case there’s no real fever), for the rest of the day. Due to this, I have basically learnt to just avoid the sun for too long, but recently I’ve wondered if this might be a condition that has an easy enough diagnosis and/or cure in Ayurveda.

    Thank you,

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Clearly the body is getting tired due to Pitta increase.
      Solutions –
      1. Wear a round hat so as to cover head, neck and upper part of the body. If the head is saved from the son, the tiredness intensity can be decreased by 40 – 60 %.
      2. A Sarsaparilla syrup / juice after coming home should help. OR, soak vetiver (usheera) / Sarsaparilla (Sariva) or both – two teaspoon each, in three cups of water overnight and filter. Drink that water.
      3. Rose juice can also be handy.

      • Thank you so much for these tips, I’m glad I asked. You are absolutely right. I wear a (cricket style) round white hat all the time because it helps reduce the intensity.

        I’ll try to get Vetiver and Sarsaparilla for next summer. If you know of any online shops that sell these, please suggest.

        And rose juice should also definitely be handy to keep around. Any suggestions about specific rose juice would be most welcome too.

        Thank you!

        • Can Gulkand help as well? I’ve been trying to find some good quality Gulkand so any suggestions for a good brand will help too…

          Thank you,

        • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

          Please write an email to info@eayur.com and inquire. They may supply vetiver and sarsaparilla and any other herb powder that you want. (mention my name in the email).
          rose juice – I do know of any brand. I think Hamdard has a good one, but I am not sure.

  12. Hello sir, in the last line you said that one can take Amla “CAPSULE” with jaggery. I mean, can anyone REALLY take Amla CAPSULE and JAGGERY? Is it possible?
    (No need of water?)

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Hi, sorry for the confusion. I meant to say – swallow capsule with water and have a little jaggery. Or make jaggery water and swallow capsule with it. Water, by default is used in taking any oral medicine. For example, any churna (powder) – to be taken with honey, one can consume water after taking the mix, just to facilitate swallowing.

  13. Sir, i can not have the boiling facility.

    1. Is it ok if we mix COLD WATER instead of lukewarm water for intake of amla powder to reduce body heat? I have heard that cold water is bad for health and digestive system.

    2. Can i mix amla powder with COLD WATER and then have some jaggery?

  14. Hello Sir,
    I have been having acne problem and I believe its because of the body heat. For the past few years my skin has become oily and I have pimples. Can you please suggest some remedies to get my body back in balance. thank you so much

  15. Is there any harm in taking amla juice at night before sleep ?

  16. Hi sir I have seen kapha , vatha and pitha dosha concepts
    from that i have understood that kapha dosha people are well organised so, can you suggest some tips to decrase vatha and pitha and increase kapha in body

  17. sir, for gastritis with high body heat can we use gulkand and amla at the same time?

  18. sir , one more question. you never discussed much about gulkand in your articles for gastritis or body heat. why?

  19. Aarti Yadav says:

    hello Dr ji
