I've found a weigt loss supplement with Indian Globe Thistle flowers and mangosteen rind that claims to boost metabolism and burn fat. Has anyone seen or experienced any proof anywhere that this combination works?
19 Feb 2016
Yeah, even I have heard about the formula.Not tried yet.
I am giving it a thought to try. I guess Meritrim is the name of the medicine. Why don't you check this Herb on the internet.
01 Sep 2016
I'm reading about this supplement now. The traditional uses above don't have anything about swelling, obesity, or weight gain I've noticed. If it has weight-loss abilities now is the first time anyone ever thought that in the history of man...so I'm doubtful. :-)

Hi, can we use gorakh mundi if trying to conceive? Does it have any side effects on baby if pregnant woman take it?
06 Sep 2016
Pregnant woman shall not take any herb at all. And also there are certain fruits that you should not take at all, like Papaya, Pineapple, Mint, Fenugreek, and Iron intake should not be much. Why do you wish to take Gorakh Mundi ? Is there some other problem that you wish to cure ?

The herb that can help you prevent from Dialysis is Gokharu, Varuna and Punarnava. Take Varuna capsules, everyday for a month. It is an excellent diuretic herb.
Take Gokharu, it's homeopathic name is Tribulus Terristris. take 10 drops of this tincture, added to a glass of water. Drink it everyday for a month. Punarnava water extract is the another cure for you. All the very best Jagdish.

My daughter suffers hormone imbalance with severe mood swings and sometime seizures prior to the symptoms and help to balance female hormones?, She is 31 and seems like she is suffering from Peri- menopause
04 Jan 2017
sorry the page deleted most of the question. I wondered if adding Sphaeranthus Extract to her routine will lessen the symptoms of Mood, Memory and inflamation
20 Jan 2017
Drumstick soup may help with the seizures. For memory loss Walnut is a good herb. But, i will advise you to not try anything without consulting with your doctor. And she is too young to have pre menopause symptoms. To set her hormonal balance right, give her Chasteberry. It is the best herb for that.

For month he has taken Gokhuru 2 times a day , Kashin Ark 2 times a day , Charndraparabha Vati 2 times a day , Punarnawan 2 times a day,now added Gorakhmundi 2 times a day. And by using one month found Creatine 7.02 and urea 120 . Please advise if any thing need to added into it.

Creainine readings range from 0.84 to 1.21 mg/ decilitre.
And yours s 7.02, which is high. SO take Varuna capsules , one capsule every day for a month.
The Urea is 120, Varuna will take care of it, in addition to it, you may take Radish leaves for a week. Take them n the boiled form or in the form of soup. And, ask him to continue taking these herbs for one more month.

Can we have gorakmundi for cure of retrovirus?
Misha Jain ( India )
06 Apr 2017
I think you need to explain some of your symptoms in detail. Retrovirus is not the name of the disease, it is the name of the Virus.
You gotta name the disease and the symptoms.

Please get your Pelvic Ultrasound Test done. Getting no periods for 2 years is a problem. This is not normal at all.
Try Fevernut decoction, it may help to resume the periods.
