2. Crush a clove and make a paste with turmeric and add a little water. Apply it on the affected area.

3. At night, apply Aloe Vera gel.
Repeat the process for at least one month.

you need no medicine, herbal or anything else. just make salad of radish (mooli), tomato, beet (chokunder), and cucumber. Wash these vegies, cut them and mix them. At dinner time, eat two or three pieces of this salad with every morsal of your food, chew all very well so as it all becomes a little bit liquid before swallowing. In a day or so you will see the result i.e. an effortless elimination that will amaze you, Insha-Allah. Besides, discipline your eating habits, eating all the time and munching snacks is no good for digestion.

Dear Murali Senna is not the Herb of choice for correcting constipation. It works temporary because it irritates the Intestines lining. And it will not set your Metabolism right. So, if you want a permanent solution for Constipation, then Triphala is the Key. But make sure, that if your system is weak, it may cause Nausea and Diarrhea. So start with small doses. The other solution is Psyllium Husk. Make the powder and add a little sugar to it. Eat one table spoon and followed by one glass of milk. Regards

Dear Archana
Senna is a Herb which is most effective in curing Constipation. To reduce your weight, eat Avocado. This is a great fruit, which helps in reducing weight. It will suppress your hunger, and will reduce your urge to eat. Then, eventually, sheds off extra calories, without any side effect. For reducing weight, drink green tea daily, early morning. Swallow a tablespoon of raw Fenugreek seeds daily. Eating 250 gm of Papaya daily for dinner will also help to reduce weight.
Take Lime juice and honey mixed in lukewarm water. Add a teaspoon of honey to the juice of half a lime in one glass of lukewarm water. Drink it regularly for 10 days. Skip for 3 days and again take for the next 10 days. Good Luck.... Regards

Dear Zafar Iqbal
Senna will apparently cure Constipation. It only irritates the bowel and throws out the food. Therefore, we do not recommend this Herb. Herbs for You are--
Triphala-- Add 1to 2 table spoons of Triphala powder in a glass of warm water. Stir well. Drink it everynight after meal, try this for a month. Trikatu ( mixture of Piper Nigrum, Piper Longum, Ginger ) -- Buy its tincture, take 5 drops of it in water daily for a month. It is also available in the powdered form.
Isabgol -- Take 2 teaspoons of Isabgol. Add little milk and sugar. Mix well. Eat it. Follow it with a glass of warm milk. Repeat it for 7 days. The regimen mentioned above, will make sure that your Constipation gets cured. P.S. Do not take Senna. It will spoil your intestines. Herbpathy Research Team

Psyllium Husk should cure your problem. however, we will wait for your review and then suggest you the way to take it, once we get to know how are you taking this Herb.

Dear Sapna
Dill Seeds alone are very efficient to reduce weight. Boil 5g – 10g of dill seeds in one quart of water for 30 minutes, or pour dill seeds into freshly boiled water and leave the tea to steep for 10 minutes. Drink 1 cup of this tea every day.
To reduce your weight, eat AVOCADO. This is a great fruit, which helps in reducing weight. It will suppress your hunger, and will reduce your urge to eat. Then, eventually, sheds off extra calories, without any side effect. For reducing weight, drink green tea daily, early morning. Swallow a tablespoon of raw Fenugreek seeds daily.

A baby, if constipated , may be helped by giving 4-6 ounces of apple, or pear juice once a day. Squeeze the juice of a half lemon in a glass of luke warm water. Add a pinch of rock salt to it. Add one teaspoon of honey to it. Stir well. Give this to your child twice a day. This should cure the constipation. It is advised to consult a doctor before giving any Herb to the child.

Dear vish
you can use the water to bathe. Alternatively, you can take a bath with with Neem water. this will help you a lot. Take Senna for 10 more days. If you think it is effective for you, even then do not continue for more than a month. drink thrice a week. Do not use it for long period. or, try...... 1.Boil a handful leaves of Neem ( Margosa ) in a two glasses of water. Wash your face with that water twice a day. 2. Crush a clove and make a paste with turmeric and add a little water. Apply it on the affected area. and yes, continue with Aloe vera the way you are.

Senna has diuretic properties and also, it cleanses the colon. So it helps you to reduce waste and water. But, there actually is no fat loss. So weight loss can be achieved by following herbs--
eat Avocado. This is a great fruit, which helps in reducing weight. It will suppress your hunger, and will reduce your urge to eat. Then, eventually, sheds off extra calories, without any side effect. For reducing weight, drink green tea daily, early morning. Swallow a tablespoon of raw Fenugreek seeds daily. Eating 250 gm of Papaya daily for dinner will also help to reduce weight.
Take Lime juice and honey mixed in lukewarm water. Add a teaspoon of honey to the juice of half a lime in one glass of lukewarm water. Drink it regularly for 10 days. Skip for 3 days and again take for the next 10 days.

For Liver, Milk Thistle and Picrorrhiza Kurrora ( Kutki in Hindi ).
Both are available in capsule form. Buy any of them that is easily available to you and take 2 capsule every day for 1 month.
You may also take Radish juice and Sugarcane juice. Avoid Sugarcane, if the patient is diabetic.

Sudhir.. I will not suggest you this herb. It is a strong laxative and can not be taken for so long. I know of many cases where Senna caused blackening of intestines. And, moreover, It works temporarily on constipation \because it irritates the Intestines lining. The best herb is Triphala. You should give up on the thought of taking Senna for your problem.
All the best.

To control loose motion I am allopathy medicine. Is loose motion is due to heavy dose of sonamukhi. If yes. Please tell me how & howmuch I should take sonamukhi to avoid constipation. Or I should take triphala & how much, frequency, method etc for smooth motion. Kindly advise.

Prafulla.
Yes, it is due to the excessive intake of the herb. You should not take this herb now at least for 15 days. Only, take it twice, that too only if you feel constipated. To avoid constipation, you need to set your metabolism right. For that, take Green Leaf juice for 15 days. You can read about this page here : http://herbpathy.com/The-Genesis-Vid48

You can us the herb, but only for 2 weeks. Not more than that. Because the prolonged intake of this herb may cause discoloration of the intestines. And moreover, to reduce weight by herbs you need at least a month. You may give it a try.

You mean to say dark circles, right ?
Apply potato juice after washing your face. Do this every night before you sleep. You may used cotton ball to apply it.
Do this regularly.
Try to manage Stress, if you suffer from.
Take proper and sound sleep.
Do not over exert yourself.
you may also keep Cucumber slices on your eyes for 15 minutes, daily. this will help to cure the spots and will provide a cooling effect.

https://herbpathy.com/Herbal-Treatment-for-Dandruff-Cid142 Read this link , here you will find a number of cures for Dandruff. The best herbs are Bay Leaf, Stinging Nettle and Apple Cider Vinegar. Squeeze tomato juice, apply it on your scalp after you apply shampoo and then rinse off after 15 minutes. Applying Papaya on the scalp also cures Dandruff.
Boil a few Neem leaves in water for 10 minutes. Wash your scalp with this. Do it twice in a week.

If you are overweight, drink Lemon honey water every morning on an empty stomach.
Eat an avocado, once a week, it will help to reduce weight. For Depression, I would suggest that you eat Mucuna Pruriens capsules, one everyday for a month.
Sanyaye Patti is not recommended because, this herb can not be taken for a long period, as it will cause indigestion and discoloration of the intestines. Do regular exercise if yu want to reduce weight. This is the best way out, without any risk of side effects. It only needs your effort.

No. Do not take it, then. It is a very strong laxative and should not be taken if not required, or if you are not constipated.

My father is 87 years and has Parkinson's disease. He has started suffering from constipation as the disease is now affecting the muscles in his digestive tract.
I gave him half a teaspoon of senna powder with isabgol and he was able to pass a stool. Is it ok to give this to him on a regular basis (given his age) or should I try triphala or an allopathic medicine, such as Cremafin?

May I know if all these following can be taken together or with intervals on daily basis.
Mucuna Pruriens, Safed Musli, Shilajit and chyawanprash (this has many herbal ingredients in it like ashwagandha, sitavari, amla and many). So will it be okay to take the above on daily basis.
Thanks
