Dear Pushpam Soni
A Herb acts differently on every individual. No Herb will have an identical effect on different persons. The effect of the Herb will depend on the constitution of the person, the condition to be cured, age, gender, etc.
So it would be difficult to give an answer to your question.

How this is most effective in dysentry.... more frequent 4-5 semi solid stools in the mornings.... how is to be taken for this problem?
14 Apr 2016
Dear Gaurav Please state if you notice any blood in the stool. If not, then this is not the cure for your problem. Then, the cure would be Nux Vomica 30. Take one dose only. Do not repeat. One dose means- 4 pilules. That's it. Do not repeat this medicine. Consult your health care provider before taking any Herb.

hello sir,
is there other safest ingredients for the vaginal tightening cream rather than mimosa pudica ??
is the aloe vera used in vaginal tightening cream ??
what is the ratio of the aloe vera and the mimosa pudica for the vaginal tightening cream or the gel ??/
28 Feb 2017
Yatn, Yes, Mimosa Pudica, Aloe Vera and Manjakani are all herbs for Vaginal tightening.
However, the best herb is Manjakakni ( Oak Galls ). The same procedure has been mentioned in the herb Manjakani given in te herb section of this website. Get the Oak Galls, break them into small chunks and make a decoction. Store it in a clean bottle in the refrigerator.
Take a tampon, dip it inside the decoction, so that it absorbs the water. Insert this tampon inside the Vagina. Leave the Vagina plugged in, like this for at least 15 minutes. Now, take the tampon out.
Try this method regularly for a period of about 1 month
