Hingwashtak Churna

Hingwashtak Churna
Hingwashtak Churṇa is a polyherbal Ayurvedic medicine used to treat digestive disorders[1]. It helps in managing conditions like bowel movement, flatulence, indigestion, and constipation. It helps in digestion without causing irritation in the stomach[1].

According to Ayurveda, Hingwashtak Churṇa has Deepan (appetizer) and Pachan (digestion) properties which help digest the food, providing relief from indigestion and flatulence. These properties also help with loss of appetite. Hingwashtak Churna also has Vata balancing property which helps manage abdominal pain. It also aids in managing the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis-like joint pain and swelling.

Hingwashtak Churṇa is generally well tolerated and does not have any side effects when taken in the recommended dose. However, it is advisable to consult the doctor before using Hingwashtak Churṇa.

Benefits of Hingwashtak Churna

1. Flatulence (gas formation)
Flatulence, commonly known as "passing wind", is caused by the accumulation of gas in the stomach. Excessive flatulence can be a symptom of some digestive system disorders, including irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). As per Ayurveda, it is caused due to an imbalance of Vata and Pitta dosha. Low Pitta dosha and an aggravated Vata dosha results in Mand Agni (low digestive fire). This leads to poor digestion and ultimately gas formation or flatulence. Hingwashtak Churna is very effective in managing both indigestion and flatulence. It helps to digest the food which in turn helps the Agni (digestive fire) to work properly with its Deepan (appetizer) and Pachan (digestion) properties. It also helps to manage the Vata-Pitta dosha due to its Vata and Pitta balancing properties.

Tip
-Take 1.5-2gm of Hingwashtak Churna
-Mix with ghee and have it during meals once or twice a day
-You can also take it after meals with lukewarm water

2. Indigestion
Indigestion, also known as dyspepsia and stomach upset, is a state of an incomplete process of digestion. It can be characterized by a sensation of pain or discomfort in the upper abdominal region. One may also experience a feeling of fullness and bloating. According to Ayurveda, indigestion is termed as Agnimandya. This occurs due to an imbalance of Pitta dosha. Whenever the consumed food is left undigested due to Mand Agni (low digestive fire), it results in the formation of Ama (toxic remains in the body due to improper digestion).
Hingwashtak Churna is one of the best Ayurvedic classical herbal combinations which helps to manage indigestion by digesting the Ama due to its Deepan (appetizer) and Pachan (digestion) properties.

3. Anorexia
Loss of Appetite or Anorexia is a condition in which there is little to no urge to eat. According to Ayurveda, anorexia is a condition that results in the imbalance of Vata, Pitta, and Kapha doshas. Low digestive fire (Mand Agni) in the body may affect the digestion process and the food we eat might not get digested properly, resulting in the formation of Ama (toxic remains in the body due to improper digestion). This might lead to anorexia, also known as Aruchi in Ayurveda.
Hingwashtak Churna is one of the effective Ayurvedic preparations which helps to manage the formation of Ama by digesting it. This is due to its Deepan (appetizer) and Pachan (digestion) properties. It also helps to improve the Pitta Dosha, which further brings Agni (digestive fire) to its normal state. Altogether, it helps improve the appetite.

4. Abdominal Pain
Abdominal Pain is often called ‘stomach’ pain or a ‘stomach’ ache. It can come in many forms and may range from cramps, stabbing pains to constant, dull abdominal aching. According to Ayurveda, Abdominal Pain happens due to the imbalance of Vata dosha. Vata gets aggravated inside the body, resulting in a feeling of fullness followed by flatulence and pain. Sometimes abdominal pain might also occur due to indigestion.
Hingwashtak Churna helps manage abdominal pain due to its Vata balancing property. This further makes it easy to release the gas which has been formed due to an imbalance of Vata. Hingwashtak also helps to improve digestion due to its Deepan (appetizer) and Pachan (digestion) properties.

5. Rheumatoid arthritis (RA)
Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune and inflammatory disease. It is a condition in which your immune system mistakenly starts attacking healthy cells in your body, causing inflammation (painful swelling) in the affected parts. The inflammation associated with rheumatoid arthritis can damage joints and other parts of the body as well. Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is known as Aamavata in Ayurveda. Amavata is a disease in which vitiation of Vata dosha and accumulation of Ama (toxic remains in the body due to improper digestion) takes place in the joints. Amavata starts with a weak digestive fire and leads to the formation of Ama. It is carried to different parts of the body through Vata. This Ama, instead of being absorbed in the body, gets accumulated in the joints. Hingwashtak Churna helps to reduce Ama as it has Deepan (appetizer) and Pachan (digestion) nature and Vata balancing property. These properties provide relief in the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis-like joint pain and swelling.
