Pelvic bone needs time to be healed, if broken.
You can drink Mulaathi tea everyday. It will provide you relief from inflammation and boost up your immunity. Other thing that can really really help you is Carrot juice. I have read it somewhere that drinking 3 glasses of carrot juice may help to heal the pelvic bone. If not 3, yo may start with drinking one glass twice a day.
Eat organic food, listen to good music, take plenty of sleep, Engage yourself with your family and good motivating friends, I am sure you will be cured.

Dear Khanamsoni
Never take any kind of medication before consulting a Doctor. As herbs are very strong and they too have side effects.
This herb is used to treat respiratory disorders and abdominal Disorder. Always take care about the dosages. And take it only for 3 days, then stop. If you have any kind of disorder, you may tell. As different disorders have different herbal treatment. For your child, well i don't recommend it without any reason. Do not give him.
