Health Tip 5 - KalaJeera-Ajwain-Methi Powder


Please read this link before applying any tips.

KALIJEERI-AJWAIN-METHI POWDER
Contributed by Mrs. Hansa Gala, Malad West.

Take Black Cumin Seeds (Kali Jeeri) 10 Grams + Bishop’s Weed (Ajwain) 20 Grams + Fenugreek Seeds (Methi) 50 Grams.

Initially all the three ingredients need to be roasted on a slow fire separately and then powdered and mixed together. Store the powder in an air-tight jar.

Take 1 teaspoonful powder with warm water before retiring at night.

The above mentioned mixture has multiple health benefits. It helps in normalizing bowel movement and thereby helping in a lot of ailments. It improves immunity. It helps in keeping cholesterol and blood sugar under check. It is also said to be extremely effective in reducing joint pains.

Please note that this powder is not a substitute for any type of medical treatment. DO NOT depend only on this powder for treating your blood sugar, cholesterol, thyroid, arthritis, weight-loss, hair-skin, migraine and other such problems.

It is a GOOD SUPPORT to your body with whatever treatment you are taking.


There is no substitute for a good diet and exercise. If your health concern requires you to modify your lifestyle, then even eating kilos of this powder will not help unless you modify your eating and exercise habits. Please do not expect miracles with this powder as this is not going to solve all your medical problems. For that matter, no single food or medicine will entirely solve any of your medical problems. Cure is always possible by proper combination of food, rest, exercise and medicine. Depending only on one modality is a waste of time and will not give lasting results.

  2. I have been taking this for 2 months. It is awesome!, I usually take 1-2 tablespoon. Is is safe/advisable to increase quantity as I want to loose weight ?

    1. Hello, I am glad this has helped you. If 1-2 tablespoon dose is helping you, I don't think you should increase it right now.
      Regular exercise and 2-3 liters of water intake might do the trick. Also diet plays an imp role.
      I have no information regarding your age, sex, medicine history, health status; so commenting is difficult.
      Only consuming spoonfuls of powder will not be sufficient for weight-loss. It will help to detox and improve metabolism, but that is only one part of the spectrum.
      Hope this helps you.

  3. thanks a lot for your quick reply.I am a female mid forties. I am also following a stict diet of about 1000 calories- lots of buttermilk, veggies and missi roti for about 1 month. I do not any weight loss. I do not have any illness but I do have constipation for the past year and I have put on 20lbs

    ReplyDelete
  4. Constipation and weight gain are common symptoms of hypothyroidism. You need to check your thyroid levels. You need to exercise regularly. If the cause is hormonal, only diet regulation will not help. You need to consult a physician to rule out that. Regards.

  5. The methi powder doesn't agree with my system. I get diarrhea frequently. Is there anything I can substitute?

    Thank you

  6. There are two things you can do:
    Stop taking any dose for a week. Then, try taking 1/4th the dose that you are taking (1/4th teaspoon). Even if you are sensitive to that dose, stop taking it altogether.
    Alternately, you could try taking aloe-vera juice or wheatgrass powder which might suit you better. Wishing you good health.

  8. Weight loss can be a success only if diet pattern and exercise is regular and controlled. You need to consult some gym and dietitian for weight management. Only depending on this powder won't help much. It is a good support, not the only means to achieve weight loss. Hope this helps you.

  10. what is kala jeera?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Kala jeera is black cumin. English names can be confusing at times. Just go to the grocer and tell him you need the bitter kala jeera. Even if you mention this combo of kalajeera-ajwain-methi, he will give you the correct one. There are many images on google too. Hope you get the right one.

  14. I am 5' 7 and weigh 85 kgs. I was always in the range of 74- 75 kgs . To reduce my weight , I had consulted an Endocrinologist and she prescribed me Orlistat . I took the medicine for more than a year and managed 3 kgs of weight reduction . As soon as i left the medicine my weight shooted to 85 kgs . Have tried all forms of diet and exercise but nothing helps.. Have ended up with acute sinus, allergy probs , blaoting , hair loss , skin problems and ofcourse weight gain.. On consulting an ayurvedic doctor , he said that its a side effect of the steroid I have been taking for long.. Please suggest wot can be done.. Is there anything you can help me with ..

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I don't think Orlistat is a steroid. I think you should continue your ayurvedic treatment for few months since it will take some time before you see results. Your problems being chronic will take time to settle. Suggesting treatment online with this limited data is not possible. If you want to take homeopathy, I need to take a proper history before prescribing any medicine.
      But I feel you should wait since mixing up too many things may no be a good idea.
      Wishing you good health.

    3. You need to consult a dietitian and do regular exercise. I do not advise depending only on this powder for weight loss as this is only a support and not a treatment. You need proper medical evaluation before starting on anything.

  16. Hello Sir,
    Is this tip considered benficial for the patient suffering from severe back pain, but is on dialysis since 8-9 months

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The tip is beneficial for backache. But considering the fact that the patient is on dialysis, a very low dose (half a teaspoon once with any meal) is recommended. The combination should not be a problem since these are all food ingredients. Kindly also consult the urologist before starting it. He must have given you a chart of things which can be taken in food. Wishing you good health.

    ReplyDelete
  19. It is good you have lost weight, but are you doing any type of exercise? If not, it is difficult to maintain or lose weight. Kalajeera combination is a supportive measure and not a weight loss medicine. Do take it but it does not substitute a healthy diet and exercise program. You need to consult some dietitian. Wishing you good health.

  25. Hello I am pregnant and developed High glucose levels during my 3rd trimester. I am on insuling still i am not able to control my sugar levels. Have been walking and taking 1400kcal of diet.
    I am in my 8th month of pregnancy. Is it advisable to take this powder during pregnancy and when should i take it.

    Replies
    1. It is advised to start the powder in low dose (like 1/2 tsp) and build up. The combination may or may not suit everyone with regards to initial acidity and occasional digestive upset if dose is too strong to begin with. I will advise you to be cautious while starting anything new now. It will not do any harm to you and your child, but my opinion is to start it after delivery. It is just a matter of 2 months now.
      Wishing you a safe motherhood experience.

    1. The powder is a supportive aid during weight loss. It is not a treatment for weight loss. The role of diet and exercise is primary, all other supplements and powders and juices are supportive only. Do not depend on them for weight loss. You can continue this for a long time even after you have reached your target weight. Wishing you good health.

  30. Hello doc, I'm 22 years old, 5ft, weight is 52kgs. I exercise regularly and consume fresh turmeric empty stomach in the morning and have one table spoon of the combination prescribed at bed time. I've been having since two months now. I suffer from irregularities in menstruation and at times it barely happens for 3 days. Will this routine help me in the long run? Turmeric is good for health. But this combination that I'm having, will it have any side effects if I wish to consume it on a daily basis? secondly this routine of having Turmeric first thing in the morning and the prescribed combination last thing at night, is it good or rather compatible for females?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The combination can be taken at night. It will not interfere with your turmeric. There is no harmful effect since all are kitchen ingredients and in a small dose. Cut down the quantity if you feel it is generating heat or giving loose motions.
      For your periods you need to consult a physician or gynecologist to rule out hormonal problems.

  31. Please help me urgent. Can I use this remedy for my 14 month old baby for severe constipation. If yes what is the dosage. If not give me some powerful remedy.PLEASE

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It is advisable that you consult a physician for such a problem. Giving her boiled beet root, papaya, mashed banana, raisins, dried figs might help to improve fiber content thereby easing the constipation. Improve water intake if it is low. I am not sure whether this powder will help your baby. My general advise is to avoid online forums for case management of a child for severe health complaints.

  32. Hello Doctor,

    I am 30 years old and my weight is 85kg. I am getting depression because of this. Can you please help? Will Jeera water work with some diet and some workout. I will appreciate your advise.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Diet and workout are primary in all cases for weight-loss. Jeera combination will help in improving metabolism and detox. You need to do some blood tests for thyroid, blood sugar and cholesterol too. If you have complaints regarding your monthly cycle, you need to rule out PCOD by an ultrasound.
      This powder is a good support for weight loss, but as already stated in the previous comments, it cannot be the only means for achieving the goal.
      I suggest consulting a physician to rule out medical causes before venturing into any methods for weight loss.
      Wishing you good health.

  38. Hello Sir,
    I am 24 year married girl, have hypothyroidism (under active thyroid) for 1.5 years and taking levothyroxine as prescribed by my Endocrinologist. I have been taking this 3 spices (Methi, Ajwain, Kali Jeeri) mixture in portion of 5:2:1 gram for almost a year. I am satisfied with the benefits of this powder. and it is not interacting with my thyroid either.

    But I have some questions below, So can you please help me out?

    Q:1-I have heard from my elders that Kali Jeeri is kind of hot and it produces heat into your body so, Is there any kind of side effects of this powder?

    Q:2-Can i take it for rest of my life?

    Q:3-If i get pregnant then, should i have to continue taking this powder since it is helping me by keeping my digestive system clean?

    Q:4-Is it harmful to me or baby if i take it during pregnancy and after delivery along with Methi-Paak and Edible Glue(Gond or Gaund)?

    Q:5-My husband is suffering from MPB(Male Pattern Baldness) after his alopecia areta treatment, which has been cured. He wants to start this powder too, since it helps to increase blood circulation as well as immune system. So is it safe for men?

    Waiting for your reply.

    1. Ans 1. The combination may not work similarly in all people depending on your physical constitution or 'prakriti'. Check how much it helps you and take accordingly. No side-effects as we see in allopathic medicines.
      Ans 2. You can take it lifelong if it suits you since all are kitchen ingredients.
      Ans3. In pregnancy there are various changes in the body. You need to check whether its usage continues to give you benefit that it was giving before pregnancy. Better avoid if any doubt.
      Ans4. Post pregnancy you can again start taking it.
      Ans5. Your husband can surely take it for general health.
      Wishing you both good health.

    1. You first need to check with your physician to rule out medical causes of obesity. Secondly you need to consult a dietician. Even though what you are eating may be healthy, but it may not be in the right balance. Also, if there is any medical reason for your weight gain, unless you correct it, no amount of diets and exercise will help. I am very sorry for the late reply, just missed your post completely. Was taking a recheck on all posts and discovered that I had not answered your post.

    1. You may take this powder as a good support to your weight loss program. Diet and exercise are most important. Please consult a dietitian and do some regular exercise to get better results. I do not recommend using tablets and powders and magic formulas for weight loss. You need to be healthy after you lose those excess kilos.
      Do not depend only on this powder. Wishing you good health.

    1. The mixture is useful in improving health in general. I will not advise it to be used as a cure-all for all medical conditions. Hair loss is a problem which can be due to number of causes. You may try it, but if it does not work, you need to take professional guidance.
      I do not think it will help you in breast enlargement. You need to medical opinion for that.

  63. Actually i am having indigestion issues lke bloating stomaches acidity from some years.. i have been taking a ayurvedic treatment .but i cannot ask this question to the doctor moreover i want to prepare a supplement that i can take after his treatment is over so in future this problems dont repeat itself .... as we all know triphala is very good for stomach so thats why i asked moreover ingrediants like methi kali jeeri and ajwain increase pitta in the body which is already i think is high in my body as i am quiet young so i thought tripla has amla and other herbs which is cooling in nature..what ur views on that and am just trying to find some natural stuff that works.for me hope u dont mind ..

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Actually if you are taking ayurvedic treatment for digestion issues, you should not get any problems after treatment is completed. I will suggest asking your doctor regarding long term use of triphala since he will be able to guide you better since he is aware of your constitution or prakriti.
      I agree the methi combination might be heat inducing,but I am not sure how far triphala will antidote it.
      I have no problems in addressing your problem, but I am not qualified to talk in detail about ayurvedic combinations. I am a homeopathic doctor. The suggestions that you see posted against queries are more lifestyle modifications or common-sense answers rather than in-depth ayurvedic point-of-view answers.
      Another sugestion is to use aloe-vera or wheatgrass powder as a long term supplement. It will cover everything - digestion, detox, and supplementation. Both aloe and wheatgrass are not medicines, so no risk to continue for longer periods. It should help you without worrying about vatta-pitta problems. I recommend it to my patients with homeopathic treatment for better results. Both are equally good.

    3 sore throat ,sometimesvdifficult for me to speak
    Is this product address above issues..pls help i am tired of all this

    Replies
    1. It is better you consult some qualified homeopathic practitioner in your area and get treated for the problem. AllerAid might help you for few days, but I am not aware whether it will improve your immunity to get rid of the problem altogether. Improving health should be your aim and not just symptom relief.

      Delete
  68. Yup i got what u said.but i am under treatment for few things as well so my homeopath said i can use any patent for this which suits me.he said this is not a big issue.so when i went to market i saw many products regarding allergy releif lik reckeweg has one , bioforce AG pollinosan , alleraid etc but shopkeeper said alleraid better than above. So have u heard or have experiance with any patent mediciens..( note doctor here prescribes patents like liver tonic alphalpha tonics etc)...

    ReplyDelete
  69. Actually if you are under homoeopathic treatment, the allergy issue should be covered in your ongoing medicine itself. I think you should consult your homeopath for AllerAid since he knows what he has prescribed for your problems and therefore can guide you for acute prescriptions.
    AllerAid might work for your acute complaints, but I still insist on constitutional treatment for improving immunity. It should not be that you are taking AllerAid instead of allopathic anti-allergic just because it does not give drowsiness or has no side-effects.
    I have no issues against AllerAid, but understand the limitation and take it. Hope this helps you.

      Either it might be a coincidence in her case, she might have eaten something else the same day or a day prior to the symptoms that might have given her this problem. Secondly she might be sensitive to one of the ingredients of this powder. Maybe she should avoid taking this powder or once more try it after she is well to confirm the sensitivity. But that is up to her whether she wants to be experimented upon or not.

    so better we see the picture from the doctor to buy the right one.
    "kalonji" which is called "onion seeds" is also bitter in taste and sometimes called as kala jeera...and it is very good for health.
    is it the one that is used in this medicine. many are using "kalonji" in this medicine as kala jeera.
    i myself used "kalonji as kala jeera" in this medicine when i did not get other "kala jeera" which is "bitter" in taste. "kalonji" is bitter in taste so i used it in this medicine.
