  1. Just a clarifying question: Does the term ‘stimulate liver’ (at least on this website) always mean “increase the volume of bile”? Or can it also mean “decrease the volume of bile” depending on context? I’m asking w.r.t. Pitta issues where there is possible excess of bile already. thanks!

    • Thanks for pointing out. I think there is some ambiguity with my usage of term – stimulating liver.
      In most of the cases, where I use the term stimulate the liver – it means, it helps to expel excess of bile out of the body and improve liver functions. (like regulating amino acid levels, clearing drugs and poisonous substances, regulating blood clotting, reduction of infection etc.)
      Of course, bile production is a liver function. But the above herbs do not contribute to increase in bile production.
      Let us discuss liver – Pitta – bile relationship in a separate article (as already suggested by you).

      • I bought this licorice which is pretty hard to make as a powder ,please sugges me any ways to do grind it. I liked your triphala video which I have bought all the herbs mentioned , thnks very much for the wonderful help.
