Ayurvedic Medicine

Avipathi churnam is generally not recommended during pregnancy. Taking one teapsoon or a short course will not harm and in case to make sure, you can consult your nearest Ayurvedic doctor for a better understanding. You can take Gulkand - 1tsp at bedtime after food. It will act as a mild laxative and improve bowel movements.

If it fails to improve, you can try triphala churnam - 1tsp with warm water after food only when necessary. Increasing the dosage and continuous use can cause contractions, but that does not happen to all.

Include berries, plantain stem, bottle gourd, raisins, prunes, figs, nuts, mung dal and olive oil. Reduce excess canned foods, fried fatty foods, refined flour, carbonated beverages and spicy foods. Yogasanas like Padmasana, Vajrasana, Shavasana, Marjaryasana and Trikonasana are beneficial.

Good sleep and sufficient rest are also vital factors that support a good metabolism. Following healthy lifestyle will help to prevent conditions like piles after delivery.

I am 15weeks pregnant. I have head pain from last 4 days and I took avipatrikar churna once. I use to take it before pregnancy regularly. I was not aware of that I should not take it during the pregnancy. Now I am worried :(What should I do?

It is not safe to consume Avipattikar Churna during pregnancy. You can only consume Dhanwantharam Kashayam which is very helpful for similar complaints like flatulence or constipation which his very common during pregnancy. However, you can consult an ayurvedic physician for doubts if any.

With regards,
