Is kaiphal bark used for joint pains
02 May 2016
Dear Ravi ..
Joint Pains just do not come by themselves. They are a result of faulty functioning of the Liver and the Kidneys. If we try to prescribe nearly by the symptoms (Pain in the Joints), it will only cure the symptoms not the actual cause.
Therefore, we should try to resolve by taking care of the Liver and the Kidneys.
To start with please purchase Land Caltrops ( Gokharu in India ). The best to buy Capsules. This will take care of your back, Knees and Ankles.
Take this for one month and let us know about the improvement.
There is a Herb called Kaudi Chaal. Its botanical name is Holarrhena Antidysenterica. Make a decoction and drink it for 3 days. It is available in all spices and herb store. And you should increase the intake of Calcium in your daily diet. Please check the nutrient Calcium on this website ( under Nutrient Section ).
We also advise you to do regular exercise or yoga.....

is it true that Kaiphal powder should be rubbed on feet soles of babies to reduce cold?
02 Jan 2017
The query was forwarded to our expert team. And after your case was discussed, there was found no such evidence for rubbing Kaiphal powder on the feet to cure cold in babies. However, there are many other cures like Honey , half teaspoon can be given to your baby every day.
You may use Saffron paste also. Grind the saffron, add water accordingly to make a paste. This paste can be applied on the chest and neck of the baby. Write to us again, if you have any queries.

Donald. It is to inform you that no remedy can help to increase the size of te penis. However, there are herbs that may help you to improve your stamina, performance, libido. But, not for making the penis grow bigger. So, I would like to advise you to not believe the vendors or advertisements that say so. Please, do not. These are all misleading.

What is the problem Meena? I mean is it related to your fallopian tubes? Like, are they blocked ? Hormonal Imbalance , or what ?
Or is it the Ovaries ?
Or the semen mobility of your husband ? Or the Semen quality ? Did you get yourself and your husband checked by a doctor.
The reason has to be known before a herb can be taken.
