Banana with a Green Cardamom (Elaichi) everyday helps to cure Piles. However, Black cardamom alone is not known to help with piles. For Piles Radish juice is the best cure
Drink 40 ml of Radish juice on empty stomach for three days.
If the problem persist, Please repeat the process after a 10 days. Hope you got the cure.. Radish. Do not drink alcohol. Avoid spicy food, oily food, coffee and tea.

Dear Krishnaswamy.V , Heat Black Cardamom seeds and inhale the fumes which it produces, for 5 minutes. It will cure your problem of Sinus.
However the best remedy for Sinus is Eucalyptus Oil. Put 4-5 drops of Eucalyptus Oil and a pinch of Black Pepper powder in a bowl filled with boiling water.. Inhale the steam for 15 minutes.

Herpes virus never dies. It will stay suppressed in the system, but may not die completely. In later life when ever your immune system gets weak or impaired the virus will show its hand.
The best bet to fight with this Virus is, to maintain a high level of immunity at all times. We advise you to take the following.
1. Echinacea tincture, buy it from a homeopathy shop and take 10 drops 2 times in a day. 2. Buy another tincture : Hydrastis Canadensis, and take 10 drops 2 times in a day.
Or, you may try Echinacea tea 2 times in a day and Goldeseal root tea 2 times in a day. Build your immune system strong, once your system becomes strong, the disease will get suppressed.

Yes, Black Cardamom acts as cardio protective herb. It takes care of heart. Also controls cardiac rhythm. Chew 1- 2 cardamoms every day. Or you can add it to your tea. If you wish to know about nervine herb, i.e. for Brain, please mention the exact problem. Mucuna Pruriens is the one of the best nootropic herb ( for Brain ). For Blood clots-- Drink Cranberry juice every day. Fresh juice please.
Drink Dandelion soup for one week. Include onions in your diet.

Sultana. Grapeseed is the herb to cure E-coli. Or take 100 mg capsules every day for 15 days.
Drink a glass of Blueberry juice daily also drink a glass of cranberry juice every day for a month. Apple Cider Vinegar is another very effective herb for you. It is good to know that you already are taking it. We hope you took it regularly for 60 days.

Yes, Pushpa. The Black cardamom decoction along with Ginger can be taken every morning after breakfast.
Also, another very effective herb for Acidity and Gastritis is Apple Cider Vinegar ( ACV ). Take 2 teaspoons of this vinegar added to a glass of warm water every day before every meal. Repeat this process twice in a day for a month. Baking Soda can also be taken if he wishes to.

Give her 2 teaspoons ofHoney every day. This will soothe her throat. Add 2 pinches of Black Pepper powder to it.
Liquorice tea should be given to her, daily for a week. Give her one cup daily. Massage vapor rub or balms containing essential oils, on her neck, chest and back. Do not give her any antibiotics, only give her antibiotic herbs like Ginger
