Arun The juice is no harm to you, but I would suggest that you take it only for 15 days. Then skip for sometime and then you may continue again. http://herbpathy.com/The-Genesis-Vid48

Is it useful in piles or fissure?
How to use?
12 Sep 2019
Dear Abhishek,
It is not an effective cure for Piles. The super-effective cure for Piles is Raddish juice.
Take 2 spoons of Raddish juice empty stomach in the morning. Take it for 3 consecutive days. Have a gap of 7 days. Now again have it again for 3 days. Do this procedure 4 times in one month.

Write back to us if you feel any problem after that.

Hi vasisht, I m 59 years, I have tickling sensation in my anus. I have consumed warm saline water to flush my bowels. It gave me some relic but when consumed any sweet the problem continues. I have consumed ajwain seeds, tried de-worming with English medicines but it is only temporary relief. Can u suggest any permanent organic remedy. When i examined stool its showing normal. Could it be cyst in my stomach bothering me for a prolonged period. Kindly suggest
08 Jul 2020
Well, you can try herbs for de-worming. Azadirachta Indica (Neem ): Mix leaf juice of Neem with same amount of Honey. Take 1 tsp of it thrice a day.
Have Pomegranate bark decoction, Carrot, Dried seed powder of Bitter Gourd, Radish juice, Aloe vera pulp. It is advisable to get a physical diagnosis done for further herbal suggestions.
