Kanchnar Guggulu

Kanchnar Guggulu
Kanchnar Guggulu is a traditional classic polyherbal formulation used for the treatment of tumors, cystic swelling, PCOS, and ulcers. It reduces swellings and lumps by drying the excess Kapha and fluid in the body. It contains ingredients which show anti-inflammatory, anti-tumor, diuretic, and decongestant properties that help to promote healthy function of the body[1].
Kanchnar Guggulu is widely used by Ayurvedic experts for normalizing the function of the thyroid gland. Detoxifying and cleansing properties of Guggulu are combined with Kanchnar to support the healthy function of the thyroid. It also helps to cleanse the lymphatic system (network of tissues and organs which help to remove toxins, waste, and other unwanted materials from the body)[1].
Kanchnar Guggulu, when taken in the prescribed dose and duration, is considered safe for use. However, if you are suffering from any chronic disease, it would be best to avoid self-medication and consult a doctor before using Kanchnar Guggulu.

Benefits of Kanchnar Guggulu

1. PCOS
Kanchanar Guggulu is an effective Ayurvedic classical preparation that helps to promote a fully mature ovum and reduce the chance of PCOS. According to Ayurveda, the aggravation of Kapha and Manda Agni is considered responsible for PCOS. Taking Kanchnar Guggulu helps to balance Kapha and promotes the healthy function of Agni (digestive fire) because of its Kapha balancing nature. Altogether, it helps improve the function of the ovaries.

Tip
-Take 1-2 tablets of Kanchnar Guggulu
-Swallow with lukewarm water twice a day after food.
-Repeat till you get relief from the symptoms of PCOS

2. Thyroid function
The thyroid gland plays a major role in the metabolism, growth and development of the human body. According to Ayurveda, thyroid function is regulated by Pitta. In hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism, aggravated Kapha and Medha Dhathu obstruct the function of Pitta which could lead to hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism. Kanchnar Guggulu works by balancing Kapha and reducing Medha Dhatu. This removes the obstruction because of its Lekhana (scrapping) nature, thereby helping the thyroid function normally.

3. Lipoma:
A lipoma is a slow-growing, fatty lump which develops beneath the layer of the skin. In Ayurveda, a lipoma can be correlated with Medoj Granthi based on similar signs and symptoms. Aggravated Kapha and Ama (toxic remains in the body due to improper digestion) are responsible for Medoj Granthi or lipoma. Taking Kanchnar Guggulu helps balance Kapha and reduces Ama. Altogether, it helps control the signs and symptoms of lipoma. This is due to its Kapha balancing and Deepan (appetizer), Pachan (digestion) properties.

4. Non-cancerous breast tumor (Fibroadenoma)
Fibroadenomas are solid, non-cancerous breast lumps, which occur most often in women between the ages of 15 and 35. As per Ayurveda, the disease is caused due to the vitiation of Mamsa Dhatu along with the vitiation of Vata and Kapha dosha. Kanchnar Guggulu has special properties like Deepan (appetizer), Pachan (digestion), Lekhan (Scraping) and Vata-Kapha Shamak which are effective over cystic and glandular swellings and shows excellent result in the treatment of non-cancerous breast tumor (Fibroadenoma).

5. Endometriosis
Endometriosis is an abnormal growth of endometrial cells outside the uterus. In endometriosis, all the three doshas are involved and predominantly Vata. Using Kanchnar Guggulu helps to remove the blockage and control the movement of Vata which helps to reduce symptoms of endometriosis. This is due to its Vata balancing property.

-Take 1-2 tablets of kanchnar Guggulu
-Swallow with lukewarm water twice a day after taking food.
-Repeat till you get relief from the symptoms of endometriosis,

6. Obesity
Obesity is a condition in which indigestion leads to the accumulation of Ama (toxic remains in the body due to improper digestion) in the form of fat. This condition might sometimes even occur due to constipation, which leads to an imbalance of Meda Dhatu (abnormality in adipose tissue) and results in obesity. Kanchnar Guggulu reduces fat accumulation that helps to reshape the body and control excessive weight because of its Deepan (appetizer) and Pachan (digestive) properties.
