Dear Venkat

Thank you so much for your appreciation.
The best remedy for toothache is Clove Essential Oil. You can apply the oil on the affected area by a cotton bud.
Or
Add 2 to 3 drops of Clove oil in a glass of water. Swish it every day. It is also useful for other dental problems.
To keep a good care of your teeth, add one tbs of salt to lukewarm water and swish it for at least one min. Repeat this every night before going to bed.
This will help in preventing Dental Cavities.

Eknath, This herb is not effective for jaundice. Since jaundice is a disease of Liver you can try Milk thistle or Radish.
Sugarcane juice is also considered good in case of jaundice.

Dear Mithra For Obesity, why don't you visit the disease section of this website and search obesity there and look for the cure. There are so many cures available for it. However, my favorite ones, which really helped me and my cousin out are----
For reducing weight, 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.

Hello Sunita Chia and Puthkanda are different herbs. Yes, Chia seeds reduce Obesity. This is because chia seeds are rich in soluble fiber content. The soluble fiber content will fill you up fast and limit you from feeling hungry and eating a lot.

Do not worry
This hormonal imbalance can be taken care of. Give her Chaste Berry. This is a an amazing herb for menses problem and hormonal imbalance. Take a cup of hot water. Add a spoon of fresh or dried Chaste Berries to it. Steep for 10 minutes. Then, strain it and drink this tea daily for 30 days. Other herb you may give her is Saw palmetto capsule. Give her one capsule everyday for a month.
For reducing weight, she may take
green tea daily, early morning. 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 her hunger, reduces the urge to eat and will help to shed off extra calories, that too without any side effect. Consult your health care provider before giving her any herb.

Fill your bathtub with warm water and mix four tablespoon of Epsom salts into it. Soak yourself for half an hour in this water. Epsom salt will reduce the inflammation and provide relief in the pain. Tea tree oil is another cure for you.
Mix a drop of Tree Tea oil in a cup of water. Apply it on the affected area. Do this thrice in a day. Drink a glass warm water, added to it a teaspoon of honey regularly for a month.

Ksharasutra treatment is a non surgical treatment that cures Pilonidal Cysts. This is an Ayurvedic practice. So, it is suggested that you get it done by an ayurveda expert.

compliment! Sure my grandma used its ash filtrate as accecerator to increase heat when boiling dried beans. I saw it break them so easily. too, it is filtrate when added in thick bean paste, lasts longer as a preservative. also when it was evaporated, the residue or concentrate was moulded into a ball to be used later as rare salt. It would also increase the boiling point when cooking bamboo shoots a delicacy of communities living on Mt. Elgon. It was also given to use as children for dry cough.

Sir, I'm suffering from anal fistula (fistula in ano) for the last 10 months. There is an abscess like structure just an inch away from the anus. I'm taking Calcarea Sulphurica and Silicea, for the last 4 months months, on the prescription of a Homoeopathic Doctor ( who confirmed it as an anal fistula). Before taking medicines there was sever pain and heavy bloody pus discharge from the abscess (not with stool). On taking medicine there is an occasional pain only & a very light normal pus discarge(sometimes bloody pus). About a month ago there was blood discharge(with stool) and pain in anus. Doctor confirmed it as "piles" and gave medicine consequently this issue of "piles" got solved. I'm still on Calcarea Sulph & Silicea.

Please, suggest some herbs to aid to my nomal course of medicine in order to inhance the rate of recovery.

Thank You

Prem. Please stop the homeopathic medicines that you have been taking. You are suffering from Homeopathy. If you want to be cured, stop the medicines and wait for a month. You shall be cured. If you continue to take these remedies, ten you will not be cured.

Hello! Sir. Thanks for your kind suggestion. But what remedy shoul I take to heal this fistula?
By the way, I, unintentionally, stopped homoeopathic medicines for a few day and I'm feeling a bit comfortable with occasional blockage of fistula opening (and thereby pain). What is the logic behind stopping homoeopathic medicines and what remedy should I take? Would you please give me your contact number? Mine is +917091483334

Please let us know that do they suffer from a dry cough or a productive cough?
Is it only during a particular season, or is it throughout the year?
As you have said that they suffer from an allergic cough, so have you noticed when does their cough gets triggered?
