Gandharvahastadi Kashayam is essentially based on Kerela Ayurveda practices and is usually used in its herbal decoction form. It can be used for a harmless cleansing of the large intestine at any time to restore the Vata balance of the body. Additionally, it also helps in increasing appetite and can be useful in treating and rehabilitating anorexic patients too. Anorexia(Tastelessness) can easily and effectively be curbed by Gandharvahastadi Kashayam, as it directly affects the root of the matter, that is, hunger and not just at the effects of anorexia (unlike allopathic medicines). Vata disorders and imbalances like, lumbar spondylosis, back pain, the case of ascites, and so on can also be successfully treated by Gandharvahastadi Kashayam at the root level. It is the Apana Vata imbalance for which this kashayam is bringing it back to normal. Since it is an Ayurvedic and an all-natural ingredient based remedy, it has no harmful side effects although it shouldn’t be taken in quantities more than the ones prescribed. Extra caution should be taken for pregnant ladies’ patients who have diarrhea, as an intestinal cleansing may worsen their situation.
