Hi doctor,

How to consume Kalarchi Choornam to completely get rid of multiple cysts in both ovaries. It is not pcod but countless multiple cysts on both ovaries. Please clarify, how much and how many times should I consume daily? And for how long? Is it fine to take the medicine during menstrual cycle? Should I have anything along with it? Is it fine to take birth control pills along with it to get rid of cysts? Please help.



Welcome to

From your query, I understand that the cysts are not the PCOD (polycystic ovarian disease). In order to remove the tiny cysts, you can consume Kalarchi choornam.

If you could get kalarchi (raw), remove the shell and powder it. Or else, you can buy it from siddha herbal shops. 2 g of kalarchi powder to be mixed with honey and consumed.

Since it taste mild bitter, you can keep one sugar candy or chocolate on your tongue after swallowing the drug. The drug to be taken morning and evening in empty stomach (before food).

The powder also can be mixed in milk or buttermilk and consumed. In Siddha, normally the gynecology related disease are treated with drugs for three cycles (90 days). Thus, you can continue the drug for 90 days.

Apart from Kalarchi choornam, you can also take capsule Nandhi mezhugu in the morning and evening after food for seven days. Next three days, drug free period. Thus total of 10 days. Again 7 days capsule + 3 days free. This is to be continued for three months.

During menstrual period days:

you should stop both Kalarchi choornam and Nandhi mezhugu. Both the drugs to be started again on day 4, after the first day of bleeding.

In some patients, Kalarchi choornam delays the periods. If it is observed in your case, stop Kalarchi before 3 days of actual periods.

There is no drug interactions between Kalarchi and contraceptive pills. Thus you can take together.

Please try to avoid preservatives and chemical added foods (packed food, juices, etc). If possible, continue yoga practice.

For the small cysts, these two drugs are sufficient. If you are planning for conception, but there are some problem with ovarian function, follicles, endometrium, etc., then there are other medications available.
