if we grind taramira seeds with equal quantity of Misri ( natural sugar) and eat daily. dose of equal quantity of two grains. two times a day. please what happen. or for what this treatment is.

I think the best use of taramira seeds is sleeping time at night. When you are going to sleep and before going to bed you should take taramira seeds half tea spoon with simple water.

Good day sir
Sir i have my baby boy 3.5 year old. When he pass stool then two small bubble ( vain last part) come out , but goes inside itself when he walk away,
Sir some one told that taramira seed mix with curd and feed to baby can cure this problem ( like piles).
Sir is it true or not

There is a herb called kachoor. Its powder is very good for piles and constipation. It has a mild bitter taste. Having a quarter of a tea spoon (1/4th) as phakki (putting directly into mouth) and drinking any liquid like milk or tea over it once or twice a day works wonders for those with piles. Do not mix it with the liquid just have it soon after taking the powder in mouth. Hope it helps.
