  • . But there is a sfepicic duration of this treatment. Additionally there are certain houses in kerala who prepare such medicines on demand. the patient has to visit one of these houses in the dawn, as the medicine is administered before sun-rise. the patient has to take 3 baths everyday while applying lots of water on the head(running water or shower can be the easiest way).1 before sun-rise, 2nd in the afternoon and 3rd in the evening. the patient can eat any home cooked food vegeterian in nature all 3 times. Non-veg is a strict no-no including eggs for those who treat egg as vegeterian. Second dose of the medicine is administered on the 10th or 14th day at the same time (before sun-rise). My wife is suffering from Jaundice and undergoing this treatment. this is the 3rd day after the 1st dose of medicine and she has started taking her regular meals since yesterday.if you need any info on where the treatment is going on, write me an email at and I shall revert with name and address of the person treating my wife.
