Dear Nirmal

Yes, Gond Katira does not have Gelatin in it. However, if you wish to repair your Cartilage. Gelatin is not the answer.

The answer is Collagen. Please read about Collagen on this website, under Nutrient section. You will find the herbs rich in Collagen.

We do not suggest Gond Katira, as it is cold in nature. Rather than repairing your Cartilage, it might worsen the condition and may give rise to the pain in other joints.

This is for information purpose only, it is not intended as a medical advice.
Prior consultation with you doctor is advised.

Sir,
I am 60 yrs man. Having bloated stomach with white coating on the tongue, can't have full meals, frequent pressure in stomach and bowl movement. Many times, the undigested food is also passed in the stool.
I just started to have Gond Katira first thing in the morning, soaked overnight in water and mixed with milk and sugar. Though I have started to feel a lot of relief, but also feeling stiffness and weakness in ankles.
a) Is it the side effect of Gond Katira?
b) For how long should I have it.

Dear Rajiv S

As such Gond Katira does not have any major side effects. But, if you are taking Gond Katira, you have to drink plenty of water, as there are chances of blocked Intestines.
But, Gond Katira is not the remedy for your problem. For Bloated Stomach and to tone your Digestive system, Eat one bowl of yogurt in the morning.
Other Remedies that may help you are
Carom
Cardamom
Drink Coconut water every day.

Dear Umesh,

First of all we want to tell you that, Please do not take any kind of medicine during your periods. As it will disturb the natural process and may cause problems. It is recommended that you should take medicine before three to five in the beginning or after your periods.

Gond katira has cooling effects. It is used to remove the heat from the body.
For heavy menses you can take Coriander.

How to take?
Take Coriander seeds and boil it in one glass of water. Keep boiling till the solution remains half. Take it lukewarm.

For other menstrual problems, you may try Manjakani. It is a boon for females. It keeps a good care of reproductive parts of a female.

Dear JP,
Gond Katira is a good herbal treatment to reduce heat from the body, as it has cooling effects. For Constipation, You may soak Gond Katira in water for two to three hours. Mix it in lemon juice and add some ice also. This will help you to get rid of constipation.

Alternatively, you may use Psyllium husk also.
Take two tablespoon of Psyllium Husk. Add a little amount of milk and sugar into it. Eat it. Now follow it with a glass of lukewarm Milk. Repeat the process till the evacuation becomes normal.

In addition to these, you should take fiber rich foods. This will help in making the stool soft.
Having curd with sugar in the morning is good for digestion. It is having the good bacteria, which will improve the digestion and makes your digestive system strong.

Dear Nayabali,

Gond Katira is good cooling remedy. You can continue to use this in summers. But you have to be careful about how to use it. Soak it in water over night and then use in the morning. It produces cooling effects so avoid taking it in winters.

Please consult to your health care practitioner before using it.

Gond Katira is generally safe for use. However, things to watch when using Gond Katira are:

1. Gond Katira can block the intestines. Drink a plenty of water to avoid this.
2. Do not take Gond Katira If you are allergic to Quillaia bark, as it may cause breathing problem.

Sugar is to be avoided in Uric acid. You can have a glass of salty lemon water once or twice a day after meals. You can also try banana. it contains potassium. It transforms uric acid crystals into liquid form and thus body can flush it out.

Dear Sm

Gond Katira does not have any fixed potency. It can either be consumed as a hot herb or a cold herb.
If we fry gond katira, then its potency will become hot. And you may take it in winters. If we soak it in water or cold milk over night, then its potency will become cold and you may take this in summers.
For Piles, you may take Radish juice. Take 40 ml of fresh radish juice and drink it in the morning on empty stomach. Repeat the process for three days.
For Weakness, You may take any fresh shake, like banana shake, papaya shake and mango shake. Or You may also eat sprouted Grams ( Kale Chaney ). This will tone up your Body.
For you digestive system, Eat gooseberry marmalade ( Amla ka Murabba ) in the morning on empty stomach. It is very beneficial for the digestive system.
For Deficiency of Vitamin B12, You may take Banana, Milk and Fenugreek.
Fenugreek contains both the nutrients, so it will help to combat the Vitamin D deficiency. And also try to cook your food in sunflower oil.

Dear Bharthi Devi

Yes, you can actually get rid of Uterine fibroids.
To get rid of the fibroids from your uterus, take Calcarea Carbonica 1M, a Homeopathic preparation. This is a specific remedy for dissolving fibroids.

Please Note : Take only one dose( 4 pills), DO NOT REPEAT.

The best remedies for a female reproductive organ are Dong Quai and Manjakini. They do not have any side effects. However, you should try them for 10 days to see, if it suits you.
By suiting I mean , it won't have any negative effects, but, you may feel a slight discomfort.

For detailed information about the herbs , You can search Dong Quai or Manjakani under Herb section.
God Bless!

See, Goond katira has both Hot and cold potencies. If you fry it with clarified butter, it will have hot potency. And recommended after delivery to expel the plecentha.
And
If you soak it in water or milk over night, it will have cold potency. So it depends that in which form you take Goond Katira.
It is not recommended to increase the strength of the Cervix. there are other herbs, which are more beneficial and are recommended in pregnancy.

Take 1 tablespoon of Ashwagandha tablespoon with warm milk daily. Add some Mishri. Ashwagandha is hot, warm Milk and Mishri neutralizes the hot potency of Ashwagandha. Take this for a month, you will see the Pain vanish.

Since Gond Katira has a cold potency, so it is not recommended to treat Gout, as this may increase your inflammation. However, to change its potency, Gond Katira is fried in clarified butter.

But why do you wish to take it when there are other Herbs to cure gout. Chrysanthemum is a super effective herb to cure gout. it is commonly available in the form of tea. Drink it regularly.
Cinnamon is another powerful herb to treat gout. It reduces pain and inflammation. Cinnamon tea is also readily available in the market. Just give it a try. My mother took it for a month. but , be careful, as cinnamon might not suit everyone. It has a hot potency. So try it and observe the results.

It is not recommended to take Gond Katira during pregnancy. The nature of this Herb is cold and it may cause pain in your knees. Gond Katira is to be given after the child birth, to expel placenta. We will recommend you this Herb later, once you give birth to your child, This Herb has to be taken in fried form, as frying with ghee will change its potency from cold to hot..
For now, you should not take any Herb. Eat healthy diet. And take proper care of yourself. Best Wishes

I have tried first aurvadic medicines & then Homopathique & then English medicine but only English medicines were effective & its effect ends completely after I stop its dose ( as per doctor 's advice ).
I was informed that gond katira is highly effective in such problems so I started to take it regularly on morning with honey after soaking it overnight from 8 days but its not much effective on me as common people experience.should I increase the dose or I should wait or any other suggestion

Dear Pushkar
Different herbs react differently on different people. The herb that suites one person might not suit the other. I advise you to take the following Herbs for one week.
1. Land Caltrops ( Gokhuru ). Buy capsules and take one every day.
2. Ashwagandha. Take one capsule at alternative days.
2. Varuna. take one capsule a day. After a week, study the results and write us back. Always consult a doctor before taking any kind of medication.

Dear Shabana
Fenugreek is a rich source of Prolactin, which helps in the breast enlargement. The easiest method is Prepare a paste by - 1/4 bowl of Fenugreek powder, add 2 to 3 tablespoon of water. Apply it gently on the breasts. Leave it on breasts for 20 minutes. Then wash off with water. Follow this daily before taking a shower. Try for a week.
Let us know the results please. Or you may try buffalo milk and almond oil. Take both of these in the ratio 20:4 . 100 ml milk and 20 ml almond oil. Mix them. Massage your breasts in clockwise direction. You will see the size of your breasts increasing within 7 days of application of this mixture.

Dear Sudha For throat ulcers . The tincture of Herb Vettiver may be given to your daughter. Since you have mentioned that she is suffering from fever . so is it persistent fever ? Please mention if you have observed any other symptoms. It is advised that you consult your health care provider. Yes, the ulcers might be a consequence of body heat. Or it might be related to degraded immunity.

Dear Mary Take Black Cumin seed oil-- Add half teaspoon of this oil in 2 spoons of honey. Mix them well. eat this paste with warm water, two times a day. Once in the morning, on an empty stomach and once in the night before going to bed. For reducing weight, drink green tea daily, early morning. Continue for 20 days. Swallow a tablespoon of raw Fenugreek seeds daily. Eating 250 gm of Papaya daily for dinner will also help to reduce weight. Avocado. This is a great fruit, which helps in reducing weight. It will suppress your hunger, reduces the urge to eat and will help to shed off extra calories, that too without any side effects. These are all the popular methods of loosing weight. Also for your slipped disc you can drink night jasmine decoction daily for s month.

Amh level low means that your ovarian response is low, to improve it, you will have to avoid dairy, soy, wheat and red meat, especially high in animal fats. Eat lots of fruits and vegetables and foods that make your body more alkaline. The third rule to improve low ovarian reserve is to eat fertility foods like Maca, Conj juice, Royal jelly, and sea vegetables.
Herbs are--
Agnus Castus, Do not take this herb if you are taking any of the above herbs if you are taking, The Pill, Fertility drugs

Take a piece of jaggery after dinner every day. Yes Gond katira soaked in water is very beneficial for you.. make sure that you drink loads of water, if you take this herb, as gond katira might block your intestines, Drink a cup of fennel seeds decoction everyday for a week. Avoid tobacco, spicy food, coffee,alcohol,tea, fried food, junk food. Eat 2 bowls of curd in a day.
Drink 20 ml of Aloe vera juice every morning for 15 days. Take care

Dear Priya
Depends how you take this herb. if soaked in water it is cold in nature, if fried. Gond Katira generates heat in the body . In this form, It is quite beneficial during pregnancy. It helps an easier child birth, if taken during last 4 months of pregnancy. And recommended after delivery to expel the placentha. If you soak it in water or milk over night, it will have cold potency. So it depends that in which form you take Goond Katira. DO not take it in the soaked form, if at all you wish to take it, try it in the fried form. You should consult your doctor, before taking any Herb during Pregnancy.

Measure your blood sugar, early morning, after fasting for 10 hours. Then measure 2 hours after eating a major meal. Note it in your diary. If it lowers your BP, then stop.
Now your body will be ready to accept the specific herb for Diabetes.
Indian name 'Gurmar', meaning kill sugar. Homeaopathic name Gymnema Sylvestre tincture. This is the magic herb that will see you through till the end. Take 5 drops of Gymnema Sylvestre tincture before every major meal. Measure your blood sugar every day. Slowly stop taking all other medicines and if required increase/decrease the 5 drops to 10, 7, 3 drops. Adjust the drops till the blood sugar reading are normal.

Dear Swati You should not take Gond katira in soaked form at all, since you are pregnant. Gond Katira when soaked is cold in nature and when fried, it's potency changes to hot. Even if you wish to take it, take it in the fired form, but only after delivery, not during pregnancy.
REASON : It might induce an abortion, as it is known to expel placentha. Take it after you have given birth to your baby. Fry it and eat it. If you will eat it in soaked form , then it might cause other problems like stiffness in joints, pain and weakness in limbs.

I started a severe pain below my right ribs and over the hip and finally i had to rush to hospital at 3 am night. They have given injections for pain killer and the next day they advise to do Ultrasound. i did that but the report was almost normal with a mild swelling in right kidney. they said it seems there was a stone which was moved from kidney to urinary tubes and will go out in few days. However, they started Antibiotics and so other medicines for 1 weeks. After taking these medicine i felt relief but again i started feeling congestion and burning sensation in urination and few drops of blood at the end of urination. I consulted the doctor who advised CT & Pelvis Xray but the report were normal. They again prescribed Antibiotic which i have taken for 1 week. Now, i am feeling better as there is no blood nor congestion but the burning is still persists.

Pradeep, it means that your body is already in nature, you need not take foods, herbs or beverages hot in nature. Yes, you may continue to take Gond Katira soaked overnight, this is cold in nature, it will provide you relief from it. Drink a glass of fresh Coconut water everyday.
Consume foods cold in nature, this is the only way that will relieve you of your itching.

Take Green Leaf juice for 15 days and then write again. I think that should work. https://herbpathy.com/The-Genesis-Vid48 I have shared the link with you. Sanjeev , try that and let me know if it feels better.

Please do not take herbs that are hot in nature, it will worsen your condition. Drink 30 ml Radish juice every day for 3 days
Consume Kutki powder, half teaspoon every day with a glass of warm water, every morning for a week.

You are not able to conceive , right ? So what is the problem ? Did you get yourself diagnosed by a doctor, ultrasound or a scan ?
Hormones are all working fine? Please go for hormonal imbalance test.

First of all, I would suggest that you get yourself diagnosed by a doctor.
Second, maintain personal hygiene. Third, eat cranberries 10 every day for 2 months. it helps to cure Urine infection.

Hi !

I'm suffering from urticaria from last 3 and half months. It became worst during night and early morning. I had homeopathy and allopathy both medicine but nothing worked. I'm worried about my 1 year baby too??.I'm leaving in Bangalore. Someone suggested me to take katira gond and dhage wali mishri in early morning . Have to soak one table spoon of both things in one cup of water in mitti bartan full night then eat it with curd on empty stomach.

Is it help me to get ride of eczema (small and big red itchy rashes on full body) or urticaria .

I heard we shouldn't take curd or lassi while we take gond it's harmful for our body.

Please help me.... !!!
