    Thanks for the information Dr Sharma and Dr Rao, Dr Sood. I d like to tell u guys that the herb only acts as an appetite suppressant but doesnt have a direct effect on weight loss or cm loss. In North India, Apamarg tandul have been used traditionally to create a full stomach effect - which again curbs appetite

    • DR. Raghunandan Sharma
      less than a minute ago
      True Dr.Rishi - it is just a appetite suppresant.And yes Apamarg tandul is used as a Kheer also.

    I was not aware of this drug, until this second of browsing your case presentation. Thank you Raghunandanji, for sharing this interesting piece of the pie. I searched for it's authentic reference in Kirtikar and Basu, but to my eyes with goggles, inspite of googling could not find one. I think, that the above may be a tribal medicine or folk lore one. Not sure,too, to be honest. But, when the concept of satiating one's agni and thereby suppressing one's appetite, I have tried with VYOSHADI SAKTU, whose effect was formidable. But, the one and only lacunae lied with it's palatabilty, which made me to discontinue my work on it's trial in obesity. Much of reviews in www are praising this wonder drug for its efficacy. Thanks for sharing this noteworthy herb. Warm regards.

      Thanks Sir.So your experience says that VYOSH also satiates Agni.As generally it is used to kindle it.
    • Dr. Bhat. a. Ranga Prasad

      Sir the concept of vyoshadi saktu lies in the very fact, that the preparartion as such is a guru ahara. Mere mention of the name of vyosa(trikatu) does not mean they are the major ingredients. As of the reference the major ingredients are yava choorna, ghrtam and honey. Thus making the outcome product of vyoshadi saktu, a guru but apatarpana one. It is for the purpose of suppressing one's hunger this guru,but apatarapana medicament must have been mentioned by our acharyas. Since, it is heavy for digestion, in order to prevent indigestion or in order to facilitate the digestion of the saktu, trikatu etc., deepaneeya drugs have been added in appropriate lesser proportions.Thus goes my obesrvation regarding, my understanding of its pharmaco-kinetics based on the principles of our system. But,If I am not wrong, a preparation called Vyosadi gulika too has its indication for sthoulyam, where in the drugs are deepana and pachana in thier action. I tried to get the reference of the same, but could not find one in my personal library. Most probably,I should have seen that reference in the library of the college were I was working.

    Respected Raghunandan Ji, There are lot of informations about this plant on internet but locally no clue... I contacted almost 10 persons who are the master of this field since you post the case, without any fruitful result. If you remember i also post a case about Noni juice and the result was the same. There are certain plants which are freely used as medicine but have no classical Ayurveda references. Sometimes references are not relevant in terms of authenticity of the book or article. I m trying by best.
