A feedback –
Respected Shri Dr. JV Hebbar,
Thank You very much for Your article on Frequent Urination. I was suffering from the same thing with no other disease. I was used to urinate almost every hour, even at night. I was not able to sleep well. I then rec’d your article and tried on 18th of this month. I was benefited from the same day. Today it is fourth day. I took only one dose in the morning with a mixture of Amla, Ginger & Turmeric juice(which I’ve ready round the year),1 tsp natural jegarry, 1 Banana & 1 tsp honey. Only single dose solved my problem. Today it is fourth day. Now I urinate almost every three hours & only twice at night.
Warm Regards, Thank You – 63 year old female, from India. (21/02/2014)
