How to eat this fruit who suffer from kidney stone?
18 Feb 2016
Dear Chandan Gupta For Kidney stones, the most effective Herb is Varuna, Cleavers and Gokharu,
Try each for 7 days, if it suits you, then continue for a month.
Take Varuna capsules ( 200 mg ) daily for a month. It will dissolve the kidney stones.
Buy Land Calprops tincture known as Tribulus Terrestris . Take 10 drops of this tincture daily for a month. Galium AParine is the homeopathic name of Cleavers. Take 10 drops of this tincture daily. Punarnava in water extract form will take care of the entire system. It is advised that you consult your own health care provider before taking an Herb.

Hello there. I want to increase my penis size and Increase the performance in bed. I did masturbation when was teenager and now my penis is weak. Can this tree help me? Thanks
25 Aug 2020
Michael, There is very little evidence to support any herb for Penis enlargement. Though to treat results of Masturbation try following:
-Withania Somnifera (Ashwagandha)- Take 1 teaspoon of powdered herb. Take it everyday for a month.
- Land Caltrops- Take 1 capsule daily, or its Homeopathic tincture- Tribulus Terrestris -mother tincture, take2 drops in a glass of water daily for 15 days.
Add Asparagus, Zinc to your diet.

No medicine can increase the penis size. Please do not get carried away by all those advertisements. Do not.
You can improve your stamina, performance, sperm count, sperm motility, and quality, but, not the size of your penis. You can also increase the desire, erection. Is there any problem other than the size ?

one of the medicinal benefits of K africana is that it helps young men increase that manhood and makes women breast bigger and firmer....from the instruction after grounding and mixed with water then rob it on the genitals ..it would increase the sizes ...how true is that ? is it possible?
03 Mar 2017
It is true that increases the performance during sex and tones the female breasts. But, there is no solid evidence of increasing the penis size. So, please be very sure before trying it in that manner.

Take Tinospora Cordifolia. Buy the tincture from a homeopathic store. Take 5 drops in a glass of water for a month. Monitor the blood Pressure every second day and then you can adjust the dosage accordingly. Be cautious if you already are taking allopathic drugs for lowering the Blood Pressure, you may also have to reduce the dosage of those drugs.
