Mantra Therapies

Do you know that, Homeopathy treatment gives prime importance on the quality of sleep and food habits in the treatment of digestive tract problems? There are nothing like a laxative or a purgative in Homeopathy medicines but for example; 3 drops of Nux Vomica 30X may cure a chronic constipation in couple of days. Note that an overdose of the same to 4 or 5 drops will not cause diarrhoea. As per Unani, most of the gastric problems are due to the imbalance of Yellow bile and Black bile; ajwain, fennel, cumin seeds are commonly used single herbs. Ayurveda recommends dietary and lifestyle modification and suggest to reduce fizzy drinks, late dinner, spicy, sour and oily foods, potato, pickles, coffee etc. Eventhough, most of the gastro-intestinal problems are treated with internal medications, the below Mantra therapies will be of additional help

  • Abhyangam – Oil massage.

  • Thakradhara – Stream of medicated buttermilk on your forehead.

  • Virechanam – Purgation or laxative therapy.

  • Vasthy – Enema therapy or infiltration of medicated oils per anus.

  • Ksharasutra - Application of medicated thread in cases of fistula & piles.
