  11. Hello Doctor,

    for Manjishta Kwath you have mentioned in the foods to favour list Milk and Buttermilk and in the foods to avoid list its mentioned to avoid milk and its products. I think what u meant is take all cooling food like milk, buttermilk etc and avoid heating food like curd.

  12. White small patches appeared on both legs, what should i take? Its appearance is increasing slowly day by day with white hair at middle of the white spot.

    • Namaste Sir,

      It is best you take advise from an Ayurvedic Physician. He/ She would see the patches and let you know the medications accordingly cause we in Ayurveda believe in Darshana Pariksha.

    • No Sir it does not help in curing Vitiligo. It has effect on Kapha and Pitta Dosha. It mainly acts as a blood purifier so it is very beneficial in reducing toxins in the blood.
