Side effects

Eclipta alba side effects:
There are no known side effects with this medicine in its regular dose.
It is used in medicines of pediatric conditions and in lactating mothers.
Pregnant mothers should seek doctor’s advice before taking this herb.

A side effect reported by reader:
About 3 weeks ago I bought this herb in 300mg per capsule and started taking 2×2 capsules a day. After one week I noticed swelling of my feet first in the morning which then changed to swelling of my feet, particularly my right one. I continued taking the capsules for another week before making the connection to the capsules. It was so bad that I had difficulties walking as my feet were so swollen. I’m a healthy and slim woman, so this was very unusual. As soon as I stopped taking the capsules the swelling subsided and now two days later my feet are almost back to normal.
Note by Dr Hebbar:
Eclipta alba capsule dose of 2 X 2 per day is slightly higher than the usual prescribed dose of 1 capsule (or tablet) once or twice  a day. So the above side effect can be noted as a side effect on higher dose. However, it is worthwhile to know about its side effects on higher doses.

      Thank you, doctor! I am the doctor too (ophthalmologist), but unfortunately while I understand in an Ayurveda a little. The western medicine can treat (to supervise) chronic diseases, but not to cure. In an Ayurveda, as far as I know a situation with chronic diseases more favorable.

    Dear Madam,

    You can take the Powder of Bhringaraj 1 teaspoon daily with water. But it would be effective if applied externally on the hair.

    You can apply this mixture and try:

    > Make a powder of these and apply a paste of this adding luke warm water and apply on to the head and leave it for 20 minutes and wash off: Bhringaraj powder + Amalaki powder + Methi powder.

    Note: As we all are genetically different with different constitutions and patterns, we respond to treatments in many different ways. Hence Standard Ayurvedic Treatments are always individually formulated. For specific treatment, always consult with a qualified Ayurvedic physician

      I have mentioned references from 4 traditional text books. None have mentioned it as Pittahara.
      But in case of hair fall, even a Pitta person can take it. It is not as hot as ginger or pepper, for example.

      The juice extract can be prepared and applied 15 minutes before hair wash. 2 – 3 times a week.

    In regards to patient complication listed under herb information is it not possible that the capsule itself was not a cause of the response. Many gel capsules are not good for the body but the herb itself maybe fine. Powder or tablets are best and always quality and sourcing of herbs is most important.

    Is it possible that bhringraj can cause weight gain? I took it for about a week and noticed a gain of a few pounds. I’m also taking amla and got kola so not sure which may be causing the gain.

      No. It does not contribute to weight gain.

      You can use it as regular hair oil for daily usage.
      once or twice a day, apply a large quantity of oil on scalp, 1 hour before bath.

    Dear doctor,
    I follow your your tube channel and it is very informative . Thank you ?
    I have question – is it safe to mix bringraj and brahmi powder together and taking a tsp everyday? If yes how long we can take without any side effects? I want to take this for my hair loss problem . Will it be helpful?
    Thanks in advance
