  1. I suffer from front hair loss and acne problem, acne marks from last 2 years . can you suggest medicine.
    Age 25, gender-male.

    • Dear sir, Try these simple, but effective methods for naturally treating acne at home:
      • Mix 1 – 2 tablespoons of baking soda and water to make a thin paste. Apply to the affected area. Leave for 15 – 20 minutes and rinse with lukewarm water. Repeat 1 – 2 times daily until results are visible.
      • Use your fingers or a cotton swab to apply 5 – 10 drops of unrefined coconut oil to the affected area before going to sleep. Leave overnight and rinse in the morning. Repeat regularly until results are visible.
      • Squeeze the gel from a fresh aloe vera leaf or simply use aloe vera juice. Apply to the affected area and gently massage for 2 – 3 minutes. Leave for 3 – 5 minutes and rinse with water. Repeat daily for two days or until results are visible.
      • Apply 1 – 2 tablespoon of honey to the affected area. Leave for 10 – 15 minutes and rinse with warm water. Repeat regularly until results are visible.
      Some tips:
      • Drink at least 15 glasses of water daily to flush dangerous toxins from your body.
      • Eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, particularly green leafy vegetables, to get the essential vitamins and nutrients that keep your body and skin healthy.
      • Reduce stress. Try meditation, yoga, deep breathing, and other related exercises.
      • Resist the temptation to squeeze acne. This not only increases the chance of deeper infection, but also leaves scars.

  2. Doctor Hebbar,
    What is the format of e-books? I would like to buy all six best offer e-books. Is it in pdf, word or any other? Thank you. Arman

  3. Dear Madam, As the disease is due to predominant vitiation of kapha and Pitta, measures are taken so as to pacify these two doshas first. If the condition is severe and disease is chronic in nature, Vamana is to be carried. Do consult a Ayurvedic Physician for the same.
    External application of the oil and then taking bath is done or do it as the physician at Kotakkal has advised.

  4. hi,
    i have acne problem since one year.I started consuming amla juice and got a good result.but since juice has preservatives i have stopped consuming.
    Now i have acne again.
    Kindly suggest how should i consume amla powder as in with warm water or cold water.
    And pls also suggest how to keep my blood purified.


    • Madam, Amla powder for Pitta balance – If you want to achieve Pitta balance, if you have digestion problems, or some skin related issues like acne, you can have Amla along with ghee (clarified butter). The dose can be – one teaspoon of amla churna with one teaspoon of clarified butter. Follow it up with a glass of hot water.

  5. I heard your article on Diabetes. Its really good. If you dont mind, can you tell me which Ayurvedic Hospital in India is best for diabetes? Even it is a health center you can suggest me, please. Thanks in advance.

    • Sir, We just suggest the medicines accordingly and do not know any hospitals as such. Thank you.

  6. Madam, Do follow the instructions of the doctor.

    Note: Because 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.

  7. Would you mind explaining the differences between pippali and black pepper and in what situation would you use one in preference to the other. I have looked on your site and see that there are differences, however which one would you use for example to make golden milk, and which one is best to use for bio-availability of other nutrients ingested? Thank you

    • Hi, Pippali is good for processing along with milk (Pippali Ksheerapaka). It is more useful in liver diseases.
      Black pepper is useful in toxic conditions, poisoning.
      Both are equally useful in respiratory conditions and digestive disorders.

  8. Are Giloy(Amrita)Ghanvati and Chandraprabha vati almost similar as far as urinary track is concerned? Or is one better than other?

    • Madam, Chandraprabha vati reduces the uric acid level by stimulating excretion of uric acid through kidneys.

      Giloy ghanvati increases urine output and reduces the body toxins.
      Both have different medicinal properties acting on the urinary tract according to their drug combination.

  9. Hello madam, Some of the main causes of dark lips are excessive exposure to direct sunlight, an allergic reaction, use of low-quality cosmetics, high caffeine intake, and hormonal imbalances.
    Here are some remedies:
    •Squeeze a lemon and apply the juice on your lips before going to bed. Follow this simple remedy daily for one to two months.
    •Mix one drop of rose water with a few drops of honey and apply it on your lips. Do this three or four times a day.
    •Apply a few drops of extra virgin olive oil on your lips and massage it gently. Do this daily before going to bed.
    •Blend three tablespoons of granulated sugar and two tablespoons of butter to make a thick paste. Scrub your lips gently with the paste. Do this once a week to restore your natural lip color and shine.
    •Apply fresh beetroot juice on your lips before going to bed. Wash it off the next morning. The natural red color of the juice will turn your dark lips rosy. Do this daily before going to bed.

  12. Good Eve Doctor,
    Recently I have read various articles on health benefits of Potato juice specially for weight loss and hair growth. I request you a article about the same and also proper method to extract the juice and consume it and how to get rid of the starch that is present in potato juice.

    Thanks and Regards

  13. Dear Every time you says that we will no be responsible & consult the doctor then why we pay you Rs 250

    • Dear sir, my email consultation service is there just as a second opinion. It does not provide much value to anyone who consults me by email. Then why fees? I get around 50 email consultation requests and I cannot do it for free, investing my whole day for it.
      I request you not to consult me by email and instead, please consult an Ayurveda doctor in person.

  14. I want to use maha bhringraj oil…..will it be able to reverse white hair caused due to premature….. Will i have to use it regularly to get benefits???

      • Hello Sir, First off its Madam 🙂 Second, Amla, honey and warm water in empty stomach with right exercises and yoga helps in weight loss.

    • Hello mam or sir…..i dont know who give my reply…..i’m 31 yrs and have white hair and beard consuming amla juice with honey will reverse my white hair??? And will this mixture helps to get rid of any muscle pain??? Please reply all my query

      • Hello Sir,For white hairs:
        Mix juice of a lemon, two teaspoons of water and four teaspoons of Indian gooseberry (Amla) powder. Mix well & make a paste; then leave it thoroughly up to an hour.You can apply or put this paste on your scalp as shampoo. Leave it for 20 to 25 minutes. Thereafter, wash it thoroughly with clean water. But remember, Avoid use shampoo and soap when you are using this remedy to getting effects of remedy.

        Note: Use it every fourth day in a week. Then, you can get all white hair black in a few months.

        Regarding Muscle pain not it would not.

  15. Namaste, If the sore throat has last for more than a few days or if it is accompanied by fever, nausea, or abdominal pain, see a doctor. If not you can try this home remedies:
    1. Drink Ginger tea
    2. Boil tulsi / basil leaves in water and drink that water while it is warm.
    3. Sip a cup of warm water containing a tablespoon each of honey and lemon juice.
    4. Half teaspoon turmeric powder mixed in warm milk

  16. It is good to continue amla powder with lukewarm water after dinner. – half – 1 teaspoon of amla powder per day is good for healthy people, who are taking amla for well being or to prevent hair loss.

  17. Dear Pranay, let me explain with an example. Saptamrit lauh is used in eye disorders, despite Haritaki and Vibhitaki having Ushna veerya. Hence, Ushna veerya dravyas are not totally contra indicated in eye disorders. Patanjali Dristi drops is a good product.

  18. SIr, My son has “absence seizures”. I heard cannabis is good for the treatment. Would you recommend that. Also, does ayurveda have medicines for absence seizures

    • Ayurveda has medicines for absence seizure. I do not recommend cannabis. Please consult an Ayurveda doctor directly.

  37. Why Gokshur is used as krimighna? Charak mentioned in krimighna mahakashay, but rasa panchak of gokshur is clearly opposite to krimighna aushadh.
    (it should be Katu , kashay rasa, Katu vipak, ushna virya, and ruksha guna, because krimi takes birth from क्लेद)
    But the Rasa panchak of Gokshur is मधुर रस, स्निग्ध गुण, मधुर विपाक, shita वीर्य, which can increase the क्लेद in body which increases the krimi, then why aacharya Charak mentioned in krimighna mahakashay?
