Dear Sir / Madam,
Jungle Jalebi; as we called this. I always felt it was a healthy natural alternate to other sweets, what I saw as a teenager.
I have a 7 acre farm, 15 km near Allahabad, UP, India. As this has thorns, I feel; it is a good plant to propagate on the farm boundary.
Can I get more details of this plant, for use in Diabetes ?
Can I get some good seeds, to grow and propagate ?
What are other medicinal advantages of this plant ?

I also want to grow other herbs in controlled invironment, like poly houses. Can you give me some details ?

Thank you.

How can i use it for gall stone.. plz suggest
Roopal Khanna ( India )
16 Apr 2018
Mrs. raal. I hve no idea if it can be used for Gall stones. The herbs that are widely uised for curing Gall stones are-- Baking Soda, Apple Cider Vinegar, Radish and Berberis Vulgari ( tincture )
What is the size of your gall stone ? If it is too big, Then I would sincerely advise you to get the surgery done, because it may cause complication in near future.

We can not comment about this now Since you have already given it to your child. Please be cautious while giving any herb to your child. No herb should be given to the kids without the expert's advice.
