I am facing from feet swollen, inching and pain in joints bones from many months. Due to this early morning I feel very tired, weak and fatigue. I researched in internet for this I guess its Arthritis. Can you please suggest any ayurvedic medicines or herbs to cure it completely. Thanks in advance.

Dear Preety
You may try maha yograj Guggul by Dhootapapershwar. Take 1 capsule every day for 1 month.
I suggest you to eat a healthy diet and go for exercise daily.

Reduce calcium buildup with Borax mixture please see internet, iodine from seaweed bladderwrack and seamoss are the best, also balance of potassium magnesium and calcium. I realize this is not ayurvedic to so you can disregard it I am not a doctor this is not medical advice but it has helped me best wishes by the way Americans appreciate Indian culture despite what you may have heard.??

When my sister had bronchitis we tried to buy it in a Berlin pharmacy, but they had never heard of it, despite widespread herbal medicine acceptance there. It seems to grow only in the US Rocky Mountains...

I started taking osha for a severe sinus infection.. (two capsules twice a day)....I have noticed an interaction with my eyes like I am having an allergy attack. Is there any noted interaction of osha with the eyes? Is it possible to be allergic to osha? I am going to reduce dosage to one capsule twice a day since I do feel that my sinus infection is getting better and typically antibiotics can't touch it.
