Question
Hi Doctor,

I want to improve my brain performance, so visited Ayurvedic doctor to take the swarna bhasma,i am little obese and having snoring problem, so doctor has prescribed varanadi kashayam. Apart from this, i have short temper problem, so doctor has prescribed mansamitra vatkam. I have list down the medicicines which doctor has prescribed.

As of now, except swarna bhasma i am taking all the medicines.

Early Morning - 6AM
     1) Kotakal Swarnam bhasma capsule - 50 mg + Kotakkal Manamistra vatkam (2 tabs) tabs with little milk (combination)
After 30 mins
     2) kotakkal Brahmi -250 mg + himalaya Aswagandha -250 mg

Afternoon 30 mins before meals 12:30 PM
3) Kotakkal Varanadi Kashyam - 30 ml

Evening - 7:30 PM 30 mins before dinner
     
4) Kotakkal Varanadi Kashyam - 30 ml

Late Night - 10 PM
     5) Kotakal Swarnam bhasma capsule - 50 mg + Kotakkal Manamistra vatkam (1 tabs) with little milk (combination)
After 30 mins
     6) kotakkal Brahmi -250 mg + himalaya Aswagandha -250 mg


Came to know, we should not take swarna bhasma with bael fruit, but manasmitra vatkam has bael fruit in its ingredients, is it safe to swarna bhasma along with manasamitra vatkam. I want to check the second opinion before taking this.

secondly, could you help me to list down the fruits/vegetables and other foods to be avoided during this medicines.

Dear
Thanks for contacting the Ayurveda section of [A]YUSH and after reviewing your medical history, I'm of the following opinion:

1. Mansmitra vatkam is mainly used as a neuroprotective medicine and in your symptoms, it is prescribed for improvement of brain functions, memory, and concentration.

2. Looking into the content of mansmitra vatkam it contains bael root so I don't think will have any interaction with swarna bhasam [bael fruit is contraindicated], even then consult with your attending physician.

3. GOLD [suvarna]: is proved as having anti bacterial action against
different organisms but when mixed with honey/ghee, it widens its
spectrum of action to stimulate body Immune cells.

ii. Dose: 1/8 XXXXXXX to 1/4 XXXXXXX [after meals], in Adults

PS. It should be kept in mind, that it will work only if taken in low
dose and only and only bilva fruit [aegle marmelos] should be avoided
during the course.

iii. possible side effects: one has to make sure that the bhasma is
from a reputed pharmacy, and if the parameters of bhasma are not met
[Bhasma Pariksha], then will cause aggravation of Pitta [metabolic
disorders]

iv. use will depend upon kidney condition and Individual Doctor [not
more than 9 months]

v. Mode Of Administration: with honey, marich churan and ghee, trikatu
churan, and according to Disease, giloy satva, chaywanprash.

vi. Avoid: alcohol, pepper, garam masala, mustard oil, pickles, rye, spicy food, anger, grief, fear, late night waking, garlic, ginger, onion.

vii. Take: : mint, coriander, tomato, and cumin, plenty of water, vitamins and mineral supplements, apple, banana, grapes, dates

. Lemon juice mixed with sugar in a glass of water helps release stress removing hormones from the body and bring mind at peace/rest.
. Apple, almond, banana, broccoli, cantaloupe, melon, carrot, cashew nut, corn, cauliflower, grapes, guava, lemon, XXXXXXX orange, pineapple, soybean, spinach have anti oxidant and detoxifying properties so take them in plenty.


PS. You basically needs medicine first for 'detoxification' and to remove undue stress and temper [pitta] inside you, only then these medicines will work faster and smoother, if interesetd I can courier you the said medicine since after your body has completely detox itslef from toxins the prescribed medicines will provide excellent results.

Thanks for reverting back

1. since you are under direct supervision of your Attending Physician thus without being able to examine you directly and also not knowing about your XXXXXXX [personal constitution] can't comment on the dosage although he must have given due consideration in prescribing you the formulation.

2. Schamberg disease is a common skin ailment, so avoid long-standing positions and use only 'murrchhit' [मूर्छित] oil for massage along with sarasvta arishta and Amalaki Rasayan

PS. You can order the oil if not available near your locality, since it is best known to increase the circulation of blood and improve discoloration

3. Some people may experience worsening of mood and increase in anxiety with use of Mansmitra vatkam and overdosage [6 tablets per day] may cause heart palpitations and heartburn sensation.

Hi Doctor,

Thanks for your time and consideration.

Where to buy this murchit oil and what is the recommended brand. For me normally if i apply any cream or medicated oil the discoloration gets worsen rather than reducing its symptom. considering this still you recommend this oil.

I understood, you cant comment on my dosage of my medicine since you have not examined physically. But in general could you comment on my recommended dosage, is it safe to take all medicine all together.

mood swing is common side effects or rare side effect in manasamitra vatka, as i already have little mood swings

1. This 'murcchit' oil is being self-prepared and not available under any brand. [this oil is prepared by myself for my patients suffering from a low backache, varicose veins, skin discoloration and for improvement of blood circulation], the discoloration initially you will notice will be removal of the toxins from the legs, so I can courier you the said oil along with the detoxification capsules which will improve the pathology of schamberg disease.

2. You can opt for 'brahmi vati with gold' [by Baidyanath or Sandu Pharmacy] and take mansmitra vatkam separately.

1. Initial symptoms could be due to the body getting use to the medicine or sometimes slight drug interaction between bhasam and drug could result in the same

2. One can take both as separate to know if there was any drug interaction [after consulting with your physician]
. swarn bhasam with honey/brahmi ghrita
. mansmitra vatkam with lukewarm water.
