Q:What is the difference between action of sudarshan ghanvati and indukantham kashayam? Both seem to act against fever.
Dr JV Hebbar:
Indukantam is generally used when fever originates from bad eating - stomach / intestinal origin. Sudarshan ghanvati is commonly used in viral fevers.

Q: Of late, some yoga experts advise inhaling through nostrils and exhaling through mouth.
Is this okay
Dr JV Hebbar:
In the traditional Pranayama technique, inhaling through nose and exhaling through mouth is a valid technique. But vice versa is contra indicated.
http://easyayurveda.com/2010/08/28/how-to-do-pranayama-a-simple-pranayama-technique/
Pranayama is one of the usual suggestions that I give to patients, for a variety of health conditions. But often it is seen that the people do not get time to go to a Yoga teacher and learn the tec…

Q: Can you tell how swarna bhasma can be added to oil for abhyanga and in creams and lotions? Also possibly the recipe for the same
Dr JV Hebbar:
External use of swarna Bhasma does not have much impact as it is not well absorbed via skin. Hence it is not worth the money.

Q: Have read reheated rice blocks the channels, do you know anything about this?
Dr JV Hebbar:
As per Ayurveda, rice or any food should be cooked or boiled only once and it should be consumed hot and fresh.
Re-boiling or re-heating of rice or any food is prohibited as per Ayurveda. It causes blocking of channels, indigestion, and initiates disease processes.
This rule also applies to herbal teas or Kashayas. They should be made fresh, and consumed when still hot.

Q: i have a question for brahmi ghrit. why we can not continue for a longer time as nowadays in environment of stress & pollution we get a lot of wear & tear on a physical & mental level…?
Dr JV Hebbar:
I do not recommend any medicine for long term use.
Regarding stress - our body and mind have their own mechanism to handle stress. So, we should make them stronger by Pranayama, healthy food choices, exercise etc. We should always rate the natural measures higher over medicines.
Only when natural measures are not sufficient, then medicine, therapies etc can be adopted.

Same thing for pollution. Regular use of turmeric, cardamom, ginger, pepper etc spices in dishes, Pranayama, nasya procedures etc should be the long term plan.

Q: You have mentioned we should not drink milk after eating radish. leafy vegetables etc. Suppose I ate these things for lunch at 1.30 pm, can I have milk at 5 pm or I should not have milk at all for whole day.
Also since milk aggrevates kapha, is it ok to drink milk with ghee at bed time. I have come across several tips which says it is good to drink milk with ghee at bedtime.
Where can we get list of all vegetarian food items that describe its potency, guna etc? Is any excel sheet available anywhere for this?
Dr JV Hebbar:
Hi, Milk along with radish is contra-indicated. They both can be taken with a minimum gap of 1 hour.
Milk with ghee is one of the best Rasayanas - anti ageing food recipes.
Warm milk with ghee is very useful to induce sleep and to soothe nerves. If the person is not obese, or if the person does not have cough, cold, fever, low digestion strength, asthma etc Kapha problems, then it is fine to take milk with ghee at night.
Make sure that the milk is warm and not cold, because with ghee, hot liquids are preferred for easy digestion.

Regarding potency, Guna etc of different herbs, I am covering them. Thus far I have covered many such as pointed gourd, radish, amla, pomegranate, etc. Use the google search bar in the right column in this website to search them.

Q: Which sesame seed is better? White or black?
Dr JV Hebbar:
The white variety is hulled black sesame seed. Black contains more calcium content that the white.
As per Bhavaprakasha (traditional Ayurvedic text book), The black sesame seeds are the best. White is of medium quality and rest sesame seeds including red are of inferior quality.
http://easyayurveda.com/2011/02/24/sesame-and-sesame-oil-benefits-total-ayurveda-details/
Sesame is one of the most widely used Ayurvedic medicines. If sesame seeds were not there, I would say, 40 % of Ayurvedic formulas would have been non-existent. Sesame is used in multiple dosage fo…
