Try homeopathy medicine....my aunt got cured after getting hemeopathy treatment...ull find relief in a week.
Tips if u r constipated:
1. Soak quarter teaspoon of sabha seeds in water for 5 minutes and drink the same
2. Night before going to bed add quarter teaspoon of Triphala powder to quarter glass of boiling water and drink the same after it is cooled. Do this I u are not taking any other medicines. Can get Triphala from ayurvedic shops (preferable) or in Apollo pharmacy.
3. Take atleast 1 teaspoon of wooden pressed sesame oil. ( The oil should be mechanically extracted and should not be over refined. Do not get the packed once that u find in shops they are chemically treated)
4. If u experience too much heat in ur body take palm candy ( not jaggery) . Dissolve it in water . Strain and drink v the same

I heard that Ixora coccinea could be effective in reducing the size of fibroids if drunk as a tea daily. Is this true?

As, such There is no evidence like that. However, to shrink the Uterine Fibroids, Goldenseal is quite an effective herb, it's homeopathic name is : Hydrastis Canadensis. You may buy the mother tincture and start by taking 5 drops in a glass of water, daily, for 15 days. Take Dong Quai capsules, one daily for a month. Say NO to : fats, sugar, caffeine, alcohol and junk foods

I'm doing a research on Ixora coccinea and I was searching for write-ups on the plant. It surprised me to find very little information on it compared to the other plants I checked, like apple, aloe vera, and oregano. Why? I'd like to have more information concerning its uses and benefits, safe and recommended dosage, side effects and the likes. I'd really appreciate it if something is done. Thank you.

Yes please
Especially on the side effects. If it's to be avoided during pregnancy but not known to have any side effects, why do we avoid it? Thanks

Your husband should try Green Leaf juice for 15 days. Read the page and try it. Here is the link to the page : Ask him to avoid non veg food, it probably doe snot suit him. https://herbpathy.com/The-Genesis-Vid48

i have colitis which results in constant daily explosive diarrhea accompanied by gas. My gastric specialist can offer me nothing that works except ever increasing amounts of immodium. I'm now becoming immune to immodium at 25-50 pills a DAY. I like herbal medicine anyway but have tried to stay with convential medicine. well no more It sounds like this herb could maybe help me, but I am not finding any way to buy it or get help with it.
I'm open to other herbs too. Can someone help me get this or a combination of herbs that might replace the immodium in my regimen?

How should i take ixora coccinea for leucorrea and mid period pain every month ...does ixora coccinea completely permanently cure leucorrea ...pl reoly ... And by having one tspn of sesame oil u r relieved of stomach heat permanently.. Pl reply
17 Jul 2020
A decoction of flowers is used to treat Leucorrhea and it will treat the pain too. However other herbs i would suggest you are Take 2 to 3 Garlic pods. Mash them with some wooden tool. Leave it for 15 minutes. Have it with a glass of water daily for 2 weeks.
- Have a bowl of curd daily.
- Dried/fresh Cranberries or its juice.
-Ashoka tonic for periods. Take it for a month.
These will help in Leucorrhea, irregular menses and pain.
About Stomach heat, baking powder is also good. Take a pinch in a glass of water for 15-20 days regularly. It too gives relief.
