Hi doctor,

I have had loose stools, and bowel emptying is not happening, so I had to go to the lavatory thrice a day. Also, I have weight loss, hair fall, and premature greying of hair. Currently, I am taking allopathic medicines. Kindly help.



Welcome to

I understand your concern.

Your symptoms point towards digestive insufficiency, which can be irritable bowel syndrome or amoebiasis. According to Ayurveda, your digestive fire (jatharagni) has been reduced due to previous faulty dietary habits and lifestyle. Due to partial digestion, food gets fermented inside and adheres to intestinal walls, which decreases the absorption of nutrients (vitamins and minerals) present in food, resulting in low energy, weight reduction, and skin and hair issues. I would suggest the following:

  1. Take Bel fruit candy between meals.
  2. Add 5 gm jeera in 2 liter boiling water, boil for 5 minutes and drink this warm water.
  3. Drink around 2.5 liters of water daily.
  4. Avoid fast food, oily and spicy food, and preserved food.
  5. Avoid refrigerated drinks and food.
  6. Take your lunch between 10 AM to 1 PM and dinner before 7 PM.
  7. Avoid drinking water immediately after food.
  8. Eat more green vegetables, cucumber, and beetroot.
  9. Avoid sleeping during the daytime.
  10. Avoid fermented food.

Kindly revert for more queries.

Thank you.

Thank you for your reply, doctor.

After taking cumin with warm water, I get the urge to clear my bowel. Instead, can I take Kumaryasava with Bilvasava? Kindly help.



Welcome back to

Cumin water will improve enzyme secretion in the stomach. Having cumin seeds directly may cause burning in the abdomen, but cumin water will never cause burning. I would suggest Bilvasava, or Bilagyl two teaspoons daily after food. You can avoid Kumaryasava.

Thank you.
