Varuna Chaudhary

Dear Sowmya K v
10 to 12 curry leaves are too much. You should not take more than 5 curry leaves in a day. The excess dose may raise heat in the stomach and cause Diarrhea. So, it's good to limit the dosage to 4-5 leaves.

Neha As such Curry leave does not have any evidence for curing Thyroid problems. Are you talking about hypothyroidism or Hyperthyroidism ?
Herbpathy ( India )
01 Jun 2016
Dear Neha agrawal

Curry leaves do not show any significant role in managing Thyroid dysfunction. But, consuming 2 drops of Ashwagandha tincture in lukewarm water (during summers) or in water ( during winters) may help people suffering from Thyroid dysfunction. Along with that, a strict diet control is a must. A simple dietary change can help these drugs to perform better.

1) Eat Gluten and A1 Casein Free food
2) Avoid eating and drinking in plastics
3) Eat food that contains Selenium
4) Lower Carbohydrate Intake
5) Eat food rich in Tyrosine such as cheese, soybeans, beef, lamb, pork, fish, chicken, nuts, seeds, eggs, dairy, beans, and whole grains. ( For Hypothyroidism patients)

First of all stop worrying about it, as stress increases the problem.
Take aamla powder and mix it with Coconut oil. Warm it in a iron based utensil. Apply this mixture 3 to 4 times in a week. Do gentle massage, leave it for 1 hour then rinse it off. You may also add some castor oil to it.
Also take Land Caltrops tablets 1 every day for 15 days. Do some exercise that increases blood circulation to your scalp.

Can i use curry leaf powder, tulsi leaf powder and moringa leaf powder daily 1 gram of each ?, if yes what will be the right quantity for a healthy living.
13 Jul 2016
Dear Cassim
I would like to suggest you that, do not take herbs for a long period. As herbs too have side effects and we can only take adaptogens for long term. You can take a few leaves of Curry and Basil every morning and Drumsticks is a vegetable and is used in south Indian food very often. So you may take these for a month. But if you have some health issues, then you may ask.

14 Dec 2016
Vikas Gupta.
Curry Leaf has blood thinning property. It acts as an anticoagulant herb. The chemical compound called Salicylates, is what makes Curry Leaf a natural blood thinner. It inhibits blood clotting. Since you are already taking anticoagulants,and in addition to this, if you take Curry leaf, then it may cause internal bleeding, which may be fatal. You can take either the herbs or the allopathic anticoagulants ( that you are taking already ). But, combining the two is not recommended at all.

I eat an excess of curry leaves....can it be the reason I suffer from anemia?
12 Jan 2017
No, you must not. Excess of everything is bad. Why do you eat it in excess, doing this will only give rise to complications /side effects. The excess dose may raise heat in the stomach and cause Digestive Disorders. And, it may even cause disease like Low lLibido. So, it's good to limit the dosage to 4-5 leaves. For anemia, take Pomegranate juice every day . Soak about 15 raisins in water. Leave it overnight.
In the morning ,eat the raisins and drink that water in which you soaked the raisins. Include Beetroot in your salad. Have it daily.

You may chew 10 leaves in a day Or may buy Curry leaf oil. Apply the oil on the scalp twice in a week and do this for a month.
This oil will rejuvenate and activate the dormant hair follicles. Another very effective cure for hair fall problem is castor oil. Apply the oil mixed with coconut oil thrice in a week. The ratio of Castor oil and Coconut oil should be 3.: 6.
This has shown great results in controlling hair fall.

Or it will further increase my hemoglobin
02 Mar 2017
Dear Umm Zainah
15.4 is not that high. It is okay. I would advise you to continue the chutney. It will not pose any threat.
Hemoglobin gets increased if you live in a polluted area or smoke.
So, avoid that. Me being a girl has hemoglobin 14.3 and that is absolutely okay, men have high level of hb.

Hey friend,

There is not any specific side effect of curry leaves. It might, however, cause any problem if you are allergic. But I would suggest you take things in moderation, even if anyone suggests you to do so.
7-10 leaves are recommended in general.
Can you please tell why did you take the leaves? Had it benefitted you? Did you have any side effect?
I add curry leaves to my meals regularly though.
