  1. lovely video.
    I have bleeding piles and can’t find these seeds online in the US. Can you tell me if there are other more common Ayurvedic herbs that might work?

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Hi, First up, many thanks for including mine in your list of favorite Ayurveda Blogs. 🙂
      I thought that the website link that I provided at the end of the post, supplies to US, since they have kept USD pricing.
      Take Triphala powder – 6 spoons – (around 1 ounce) add it to half a bucket of water, boil for five minutes, let it cool down to room temperature. Use this water for sitz bath. This will also help. Triphala powder can be bought here – ad – Triphala – Organic, 1 lb,(Banyan Botanicals)

    Dear Dr Hebbar,

    What is the difference between normal and basmati rice in terms of doshas they aggravate?


    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Hi, I will write about rice in detail.
      Basically, both normal rice and Basmati rice, which are one year old are similar in action.

  3. Hi,
    If I’m not mistaken, Charak samhita mentions basmati rice as a light /laghu food item…….
    can you confirm per your knowledge…………..thanks.
