Benefits & Medicinal Uses of Kumari Asav
As a detoxifier and anti-toxin, Kumari Asav works against AMA (toxins), making it useful for treating all illnesses brought on by AMA buildup and increased production in the body.
Loss of Appetite & Anorexia Nervosa
The secretion of digestive juices also stimulates appetite and makes a person feel hungry. Kumari Asav also acts on the mind and nervous system, stimulating the release of bile into the intestine and promoting digestion.
It boosts cravings for food and increases appetite.
It lessens abdominal heaviness, burping, and excessive salivation.
When treating anorexia nervosa and poor appetite, Kumari Asav should be used twice daily at a dosage of 5 ml for children and 10 ml for adults, with the dosage being gradually increased over the course of 2 to 4 weeks to 10 ml for children and 20 ml for adults.
It should be noted that the patient should not have any problem listed in the contraindications; otherwise, it should not be given. In general, all Asava and Arishta preparations are recommended to take after meal, but Kumari Asav should be taken 30 minutes prior in cases of poor appetite and loss of desire to eat.
Mild & Dull Abdominal Pain
However, because of its gentle stimulant action on peristaltic movements, Kumari Asav can occasionally cause mild abdominal cramps during bowel movements. However, it can also lessen dull pain if it is brought on by intestinal gas and increased Kapha Dosha in the abdomen, which can be determined by examining the symptoms below.
- Mouth flavor: sweet
- excessive slobbering
- Absence of abdominal tenderness and a dull, mild abdominal pain
- experiencing abdominal heaviness
Before prescribing Kumari Asav, it’s crucial to make sure the patient has no epigastrium or abdominal tenderness, gastritis, heartburn, or other pitta symptoms because these conditions will make the pain worse; in these situations, Kamdudha Ras is the ideal medication.
Fatty Liver Syndrome (Hepatic Steatosis)
For better results in Fatty Liver Syndrome, it can be used in conjunction with other treatments such as Kumari Asav.
Hepatomegaly (Liver Enlargement)
When linked to hepatic steatosis, Kumari Asav is also helpful for shrinking the size of the liver and may function similarly to how fatty liver was treated above.
As it regulates liver functions and increases the flow of bile from the liver and gall bladder to the intestine, Kumari Asav acts on peristalsis and appears to be a mild stimulant laxative as well. Because its effects are long-lasting due to the modulation in liver functions, it can help with chronic constipation.
Both children and adults can use Kumari Asav for this purpose; the dosage should be 5 ml in children and 10 ml in adults twice daily after meals. It helps to clear the lungs and reduce cough attacks by making the accumulated mucus thinner and aiding in the expulsion of the thick sputum with cough.
Non-bleeding Piles (Hemorrhoids)
Given that Kumari Asav is contraindicated in piles that bleed even occasionally, it is important to carefully examine the patient and review his medical history.
It also relieves symptoms of pain and discomfort in non-bleeding piles by reducing the hardness of the hemorrhoidal mass and by reducing AMA (toxins), which are thought to be the root of piles in ayurveda.
As a detoxifier, anti-toxin, and AMA PACHAKA, Kumari Asav helps to reduce AMA and relieve symptoms like joint inflammation, swelling, and stiffness. Stiffness with swelling and poor appetite are two primary indicators to use Kumari Asav. Rheumatoid arthritis is similar to AMAVATA in ayurveda. This condition occurs due to accumulation of AMA (toxins) in the body.
Along with Mahayograj Guggul and Raja Pravartini Vati, Kumari Asav aids in the onset of menstruation. It also acts on the ovaries, correcting ovarian functions and inducing ovulation. It may also have an effect on female hormones, normalizing and balancing hormone levels, which may aid in the onset of menstruation.
When a patient has scant menstruation and better menstrual flow, Kumari Asav is advantageous; if the patient has heavy bleeding, Ashokarishta should be used; if the patient has light bleeding, Kumari Asav is advantageous.
In contrast, Ashokarishta is beneficial if bleeding is heavy. Kumari Asavi is given in dysmenorrhea (painful periods) if there is no Pitta symptom present in the patient and if patient has less bleeding and scanty period.
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
The same rule applied here: if the patient has amenorrhea along with PCOS, Raja Pravartini Vati may also be added. Kumaryasava, Mahayograj Guggul, Chandraprabha Vati, and Sukumaram Kashayam should be used. If the patient has scanty periods, light menstruation, or absent menstruation (amenorrhea), these symptoms should be treated.
Dose of Kumari Asav
- 12 to 24 ml, once or twice a day, and after meals is usually advised.
- It can be combined with water in an equal amount if necessary.
Side Effects of Kumari Asav
This side effect occurs when Kumaryasava is taken in high doses, or more than 50 ml per day; however, if patient has Pitta Body Type or other pitta conditions, then this side effect can also occur with lower dosage as well. However, it is used in the management of piles, but it is contraindicated in bleeding piles and other bleeding disorders.
- stool with a green tint
- It’s a very uncommon side effect.
Mild Abdominal Cramps during bowel movement
Although a very uncommon side effect of Kumari Asav, mild abdominal cramps or pain during feces may occur when taking this laxative.
Discomfort feeling in urinary bladder and urethra
When taken in excess, Kumaryasava may make the bladder and urethra feel uncomfortable.
Nephritis (inflammation of kidneys)
Additionally extremely uncommon, this side effect only happens when taking high doses.
Pregnancy & Lactation
Given that Kumari Asav has an emmenagogue effect, which can cause bleeding and miscarriage, it shouldn’t be taken while pregnant.
It should only be consumed while lactating if an ayurvedic doctor advises it for your particular health situation.
The following medical conditions are not suitable for and should not be taken with Kumaryasava:
- kidney conditions
- Amounts of blood
- inflammatory bowel disease
- The illness Crohn’s
- acid reflux
- gum disease
