Dear Hanu,
Horse Gram is beneficial for Diabetes .People take it in the form of curry or soups. However, the sprouted Horsegram is more beneficial.
But, for Diabetes there are other herbal treatments you may try for more benefits.
1.Tinospora Cordifolia, which is known as Giloy or Guduchi in Hindi. Buy a tincture of Giloy from a homeopathy store and take 10 drops in water every day. Take it for one month and check out your blood glucose level. If you notice any favorable changes, then continue.
Remember, Giloy is a very strong herb. Please, do not take other diabetes medications with this. It may lower your blood glucose level below normal.
Giloy has other benefits also. It is good for high blood pressure and high Cholesterol. It prevents the deposition of Plaque on the walls of the Arteries and reduces the risk of Heart attacks.
2. Karanjwa may also be beneficial for Diabetes. The botanical name of this herb is Caesalpinia Bonduc.
How to use Kranjwa?
Crack the Kranjwa seed. Take out the kernel, soak it overnight. Next morning eat the kernel and drink the water also.

Before taking any kind of medication, please consult your doctor first.

How to use Horse gram for gall bladder stone 5-6 calculli ?
Is it effective ?
Ishita Bhatt
23 Jul 2015
Dear Snigdha Patro

Horse Gram is very effective in removal of Kidney stones, since, you have stones in your Gall bladder, I would suggest you to get it removed, before the calculi size increases. As, the increase may lead to further complications.
I got my Gall bladder removed last month . Trust me, I tried all the herbs and allopathic medicines I could, but, all in vain.
Finally I had to get it removed. And after the surgery, I have been taking other herbs to tonify my body. Horse Gram is known to dissolve the Kidney stones.

Wishing you luck. Take good care of yourself.!

My mom got a small gallstone..may i know if drink this horsegram water can removed it..or can you suggest what can removed gallstone..to eat.

Dear Yuugasini A/P Nagarajan

Sorry to hear about your mother. Gallstones can not be removed by Horsegram. Horsegram is for Kidneystones. There is a slight possibility for the stone to get removed, if the it is a small one. However, if the size is more than 3mm, it might be problematic. If it gets stuck in the mouth of the Gallbladder, then, there may be an emergency.
So we suggest you to go for a planned surgery. And you may take the herbs afterwards to tonify the body and fasten up the recovery after surgery.

Dear Arun Kumar

The mentioned herbal treatment is beneficial to keep a good care of your Hair and prevent hair fall too.

1. Oil Massage. Like other body parts hair also need nourishment. Massage will help in improving the blood circulation over the Head and also provide nourishment to the hair. So do oil massage on regular basis. Boil a hand full of curry leaves in coconut oil. Store it and do massage twice in a week.
2. Apply fresh juice of onion for 10 to 15 minutes on your scalp. Onions are considered as the most ancient and common remedial treatment to regrow your hair. Onion is rich in sulphur and enhances the production of collagen in the body.
3. Eating one fresh Gooseberry at every morning will take care of your and Skin both.

Never use harsh chemicals on your hair. It will damage your hair and may result into baldness.

Dear Aminul Islam,
Berberis Vulgaris is the medicine used for expelling stones. But, there is a possibility of the stone moving down towards the small intestine. If it gets stuck in the passage of your organ , then it might cause an emergency.
It is advised that you consult your health care provider. You may go for a planned surgery, to avoid any emergency situation. Regards
