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.

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.!

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.

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

Horse Gram is hot in nature. Therefore, it is usually taken in winters. It can cause excessive bile production, if taken in excess.
May even cause Bloating . As, such Horse Gram does not show side effect like Hair fall. For Hair Fall. Apply fresh juice of onion for 10 to 15 minutes on your scalp. Do not take excess of any Herb.

Horsegram is a good herb to cure menstrual problems like scanty or irregular periods. Add horse gram to your daily diet whether in the form of sprouts, soups or boiled water to watch the results. Just make sure that you do not take too much of it. 20 gm per day would be sufficient.
You may try Horse Gram soup. Drink this soup for 1 week before your period cycle starts.. Do not take it during your menses please. Also, this herb is hot in nature, so usually not recommended to be taken in summers.

Can horse gram be used to clean up a carotid artery with mild plaque? it has been there for several years and doctor is not concerned since there is no blockage but I have been concerned and want it removed ...I suffer for many years from tinnitus and have severe hearing loss and now I learn that hearing loss has been linked by scientific researchers to carotid artery disease...

I am determined to reverse my hearing loss and it seems cleaning up the carotid artery is a key factor....

I have been using karma poorna oil, shravananda vati, ashwagandha for tinnitus with no significant results...So I want to focus on the carotid artery....Will horse gram help me clean it? IN the past the tinnitus has been pulsatile but not so much anymore...

I know I must also lower my LDL cholesterol which is at 170...( HDL is 65) .but guggulu seems to increase the tinnitus so I need an alternative.....Will horse gram also help with this also?

Dear Ramya.S. Your husband should take Mahayograj Guggul capsules for a month. This very really help him with the back pain. To reduce belly fat : Soak horse gram seeds overnight and morning cook it well. Grind the seeds and filter the extracts. Add cumin powder and salt in this soup. Consume it daily twice.
drink green tea daily, early morning.
Swallow a tablespoon of raw Fenugreek seeds daily. Eating 250 gm of Papaya daily for dinner will also help to reduce weight. Avocado. This is a great fruit, which helps in reducing weight. It will suppress your hunger, reduces the urge to eat and will help to shed off extra calories, that too without any side effect.
Have your dinner 2 hours prior to bed. If you go to bed soon after you finish eating, your body will not burn the fat and this might increase your cholesterol level. Drink Dandelion tea everyday to reduce the tummy fat.
Also, take Cranberry juice in the morning, for a month. continued....

Dear Yamra
Horse Gram is hot in nature. Therefore, it is usually taken in winters. It can cause excessive bile production, if taken in excess.
May even cause Bloating. People suffering with Tb should avoid horse gram.
Also, it is not recommended for pregnant women. Other than these, Horse gram does not have any known side effects.

The best for getting rid of Kidney or Ureter stones is Varuna. It is known to remove the gravel, stones from Kidneys. Buy Varuna capsules. Take one capsule every day. Try this for a month. Or, alternatively you may take it homeopathic tincture, it is known as Crataeva Nurvala. Take 10 drops of this tincture in a glass of water, every day for a month. Other herbs that will benefit you are- Drumsticks, Gokharu and Chicory. You can look for them respectively ion the herb section. I had 10 mm stone in my left ureter and it got removed by Varuna tincture and Drumstick soup.

Before suggesting you a cure, please answer the following questions..
Have you ever experienced a back injury ?
Did you get yourself diagnosed by a doctor ?
Do you feel numbness or tingling sensation in your back ?
Are you taking any medication for this problem at present ?
In the mean time, to strengthen your back and open the blocked channels, adaptogenic herb Ashwagandha is the best. Ashwagandha : It will open up all your blocked channels in the body. It is an adaptogen herb. Take half teaspoon of Ashwagandha powder with warm milk on alternate days. The herb is hot in nature, so try taking it thrice a week first, then you may adjust the dosage accordingly. It is advised that you consult your health care provider before trying any Herb. And once you answer the questions we have asked, then we will be able to provide more appropriate cure.

Why do you wanna have it everyday. No, if you are not suffering from any disorder, then it is not advised to take it everyday. This herb is hot in nature and might not be good to be consumed during summers, that too if you do not take to cure some disorder.

You said, you want to reduce 20 kg that means you want be 58 kgs. Well, I think then you would become under weight. You should take care of your Kidneys first, It might be due to edema that usually caused in Kidney patients.
You try the following Herbs.
1. Tribulus Terrestris ( Gokhuru ) : Buy tincture from a Homeopathy Shop and take 10 drops 3 times in a day.
2. Buy Boerhavia Diffusa extract and have 10 drops 3 times in a day. It is also available in powder form.
3. Buy Crataeva Nurvala tincture and take 10 drops 3 times in a day.
4. Have 2 cups of Green tea daily.
5. For Hemoglobin, Have Pomegranate juice and Beet root daily.
You may follow this regimen for 1 month. These herbs are all good for Kidneys.

If you are afraid that your daughter's body type is hot . And Horsegram is hot in nature. And both do not go with each other. You are right. And delaying the puberty is not at all the right thing to do. You cfan change the potency of Horsegram, this can be done by soaking it overnight. By, doing this the herb becomes cold in nature. Take 30 gm of Horse Gram. Soak it overnight in about three to four glasses of water. Next morning, boil it for 10 minutes. Once the color is brown, strain the solution and drink it. add rock salt and pepper to it. Give this drink in the morning on an empty stomach.
Give her papaya everyday.
Always consult your health care provider before tring any herb.

The intake of herb depends on the condition to be cured. Warfarin has blood thinning action on the body, and Horsegram does not have the same, so you may take it. But, an explanation of your problem would be appreciated and be of use.

Narender No there is no relevance of Coriander with kidney stones. However, Horsegram is an amazing herb for the same. You may take Horsegram in the soup form, in the sprouts. The herb is hot in nature, that is why it is suggested that you soak the horsegram overnight and then use it the next day. You may drink the water in which it was soaked and later you can eat the horsegram in the boiled form. Varuna is another very effective herb to remove Kidney Stones. It is known to dissolve any gravel or calculus. An excellent herb for stone removal.
You may buy it's homeopathic tincture. It is known as Createva Nurvala. Add 10 drops of this tincture to a glass of water and drink it everyday for a month. Have Gokharu capsules for a month. One everyday. Another herb which will take care of your Kidneys. All the very best. Hope you get well soon.

The most effective way of taking it for weight loss is by soaking it overnight. And drinking the water, the next morning. It is roasted so that it gets powdered easily and roasting it makes its potency hot and soaking makes it cold. You may drink horsegram soup everyday in winters.
Do not overlook the nature of the Herb-- It is hot in nature.

2. Go to a Homeopathy shop and Buy Gymnema Sylvestre tincture. Give her 10 drops before every major meal.
3. Buy Tinospora Cordifolia tincture and give her 10 drops 2 times in a day.
4. Give her Cow's Foot ( Bauhinia Forticata ) Herb. Take 20gm of Cow's Foot leaves and boil them for 15 min. Strain and have the decoction every day.
Keep a regular check on her Blood Sugar. Once the Blood Sugar level goes down, reduce the dosages of Herbs.
