Dear Imran S khan You may try with the Herb Boswellia Serrata for your son. The capsules may be given daily. But, remember to reduce the dosage to half as that recommended for an adult. Wheat grass juice 15 mil daily in the morning is also beneficial for him.

My mother got allergy same look a like chicken pox after burning the marking nuts, and it's very irratative to her and causing rashes and itching..
Give some advice in order to get cure from this.
05 May 2017
Please visit a doctor and get your mother diagnosed first, we can not suggest a cure on the basis of assumptions. Burning the making nuts means, was she preparing something from this herb ?
Has it ever happened to her before ?
What all organs have been affected? , the face, arms or the whole body ?
Did she take any medicine ?

I have been told that capsules containing semecarpus anacardium oil and extract would be useful for giving relief from chronic pain from neuropathy. Is this true? As a person who has had kidney transplant, should I take it? Does it have any toxicity to the kidney?

First, bhilamo must try in small quantity to check sensitivity. Different people has different level of tolerance . You must avoid non-veg food a month ahead prior starting using bhilamo. If you show any allergic reaction, stop using bhilamo and apply yogurt+black sesame powder paste as coolant on affected spots. Eat lots of charoli and saker to cool down from inside. Avoid drinking water, drink milk instead while using bhilamo. Never apply bhilamo or its oil straight on skin. Bhilamo does irritate kidneys to make them work harder which increase urine and as a result it gets tired soon and urine gets reduced. As a result you may see some times blood mixed in urine.
Shilajit has good effect on kidney functioning.
Hope this will help you.

I m suffering from RA, my mother gave me marking seeds to eat. I got swelling at upper jaw from inside. Please suggest marking seeds should not eat ..what’s the remedy to cure it?
20 Mar 2020
Dear Pradnya
For RA, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Mint is an effective herb. Take Mint leaves, grind them and squeeze out the juice from the leaves. Add 2 to 3 drops of Eucalyptus oil. Massage gently over the affected region. This is a combination herb cure. If you don't have Eucalyptus, try Ginger, Mint or Rosemary tea with lemon in it. It is very effective in treating RA. Beside these, take Boswellia capsules. Take 2 everyday for a month. Write back after a month.
