Herbal Medicines for the Cure of General Disorders
In jaundice - In all liver disorders, take a concentrated decoction of the leaves of BhoomIaki every morning for six days. It is highly hepatoprotective. Once jaundice is cured, fry the berries of makoi (manthakkali in Tamil & Malayalam) in ghee and mix this with rice and eat at the beginning of every meal to improve digestion and general resistance.
In fevers - An infusion of the leaves every morning brings down temperature especially in intermittent fevers, being cooling, and febrifuge.
In diarrhoea and dysentery - Mix the paste of the leaves with some fenugreek seeds and curds and swallow this mixture to arrest loose motions irrunediately.
In scabies - Being antiseptic, an application of pasted BhooamIaki leaves on infected skin and on wounds effects quick healing.
In urinary infections - In any disorders of the urinary system, BhooamIaki is helpful in the form of a cooled decoction, twice a day, owing to its coolant and diuretic properties.
In thirst and burning sensation - Apply a cool paste of the leaves on hands and feet to soothe burning sensation and drink an infusion of the leaves to mitigate long-standing thirst. In burning sensation in the eyes or any other eye disorder a few drops of the juice of the leaves are instilled in the eyes. Again, its antiseptic property comes into play to effect a quick cure.
In white discharge and menstrual disorders - Grind the seeds of Bhooamlaki in rice wash and drink every day for a few weeks to get rid of the above afflictions.
In hiccough and breathlessness - Paste the roots of Bhooamlaki in water and mix some saumph seeds in it before drinking.
