Thanks to all respected vaidyas for very intelligent and excellent replies for my earlier case discussions. now please clarify my doubts on the pros and cons of haridrakhand while using in skin ailments. Please also tell the proper anupana / dosage / time period for which haridrakhand should be taken. thanks a lot
haridra khand could not be given as single drug in skin ailments. it should be given as supportive medicine for skin ailments. because of main constituent haridra khand is antibiotic & antiallergic and having melanocyte activator agents. but it is not so strong effects so that it could not be given as single medicine. always use harudra khand 2-3gm with milk at sleeping time. avoid lehsun,spices,non-veg foods in meals.
DR.SHALINI, ...THOUGH IT IS TOLD IN TWO CONDITIONS(KRIMI & SHEETAPITTAUDARDAKOTHA) AND THREE TIMES IN BHAISHAJYARATNAVALI, BRIHAT HARIDRAKHAND (WITH ABHRAKA & LOHA BHASMA)IS THE ONE REGULARLY AVAILABLE. IT IS BEST BET FOR ALLERGIC SKIN CONDITIONS (KANDUNAM PARAMOUSHADAM). BEST SUPPORTING MEDICINE IN SWASA, KRIMI, PANDU, KAMALA AND SOTHA...IT EVEN CAUSES MRIDU VIRECHANA. THOUGH DOSAGE IS TOLD AS HALF TOLA(5-6GMS), PRACTICALLY IT VARIES BETWEEN 3-10GMS. WARM WATER IS THE BEST ANUPAN, BUT WARM MILK AND HONEY ARE ASLO IN PRACTICE. THIS DRUG IS BEST ON EMPTY STOMACH AND IS ADVISED TWICE A DAY. FOR THE DURATION, IT IS SAID AS 'SHEETAPITTAUDARDAKOTHAAN SAPTHAHADEVA NASHAYET'-THIS DURATION OF 7 DAYS IS TO SUBSIDE THE PARTICULAR ATTACK, BUT TO PREVENT THE ALLERGIC NATURE AND RECURRENCE IT CAN BE COMFORTABLY ADMINISTERED FOR 3-6MONTHS. AS ALMOST ALL THE INGREDIENTS ARE OF USHNA VIRYA THERE ARE CHANCES OF PITTA PRAKOPA WHERE WE GET THE COMPLAINTS OF HOT FLUSHES,HEADACHE AND INCREASED STOOL FREQUENCY. PRACTICALLY I OBSERVED THESE COMPLAINTS IN ONLY FEW PATIENTS EVEN ON LONG DURATION INTAKE.
dear doctor HARIDRAKHAND IF GIVEN WITH PROPER ANUPANA WORKS WELL IT HAS NO SIDE EFFECTS EXCEPT FOR MILD CONSTIPATION AND IF GIVEN WITH WARM WATER AND WARM MILK IT GOESWELL AND TO HIGH LIGHT ABOUT URTICARIA THE HISTAMINE EFFECT USUALLY COMES DOWN ON ITS OWN AFTER STOPPING THE ALLERGINS OR AVOIDING THE ALLERGIN HENCE OUR SYSTEM IS TO HELP THE BODY IN REDUCING THE HISTAMINES THAT IS THE TOXIC EFFECTS OF THE SYSTEM HERE THE ROLE OF AYURVEDIC HERBS PLAYS THE ROLE

dear doctor haridra khand is used in allergic disorders of skin and respiratory passages. this is good in cases of urticaria, kandu,psoriasis i also use it for respiratory allergies in "jeerna pratishyay " "tamaka swas" if given for longer duration this has very good results. dose depends according to individual normally 3 - 5 gm anupana - lukewarm water or lukewarm milk i think nagarjuna pharmacy is making "allergin granules" for allaergic disorders.the contents are more or less similar to haridrakhand as described in ayurveda texts regards
**Turmeric's major constituents are 'curcumin', various 'curcuminoids' and 'curcuma oil' (particularly dl-ar-turmerone),which exhibits a wide range of medicinal activities. *The turmeric,with its antibacterial action, will prevent the bacterial wound infections. *Turmeric powder, extracts and curcumin also exhibit antioxidant property. *Through their antioxidant mechanisms, curcumin and turmeric support colon health, exert neuroprotective activity and help maintain a healthy cardiovascular system.Curcumin,also interferes with melanoma cells. *Taking too many turmeric capsules may increase body temperature.There is a possibility that high dose turmeric ingestion leads to high oxalic acid in the urine leading to kidney stones.
