Kaivishaparihari Gulika – Ingredients, Uses, and Dosage

Kaivishaparihari Gulika is an ayurvedic medicinal preparation in the form of a pill/tablet. It is used in treating kaivisha (ingested poison – diseases caused by ingested poisonous substances through food and drinks).

Many people suffer from administered poison to food poison (gara visha) with the symptoms of loss of appetite, burning sensation in stomach, laziness, dullness, pallor, dropping limb, giddiness, emaciation, exhaustion, and lifelessness.

Once the poison enters the body no other medication or treatments will work until the poison is expelled out from the body. If it is not removed in time patients mostly suffer a slow death. Kaivishaparihari Gulika helps in treating this kind of poison.
