Jeerakarishtam Benefits & Medicinal Uses
Jeerakarishtam is a digestive tonic for all and uterine tonic and detoxifier for women. Some of its benefits are as follows.
Dashmularishta (Dasamoolarishtam) is the main medicine for postpartum fever and infections, but it is contraindicated when a woman has heartburn, burning sensation, heat sensation in hands and feet, and other Pitta symptoms. If the patient has Pitta symptoms, then Jeerakarishtam is a good choice for her. However, it works well if fever is low-grade and develops into a chronic disease/infection. In acute cases, it may not be beneficial. In chronic cases, many women have complaints of laziness, malaise, stiffness, diarrhea, abdominal pain, excessive thirst etc., and then it is highly recommendable along with other medicines as recommended by a physician.
Like Dashmularishta, Jirakadyarishtam is also beneficial for increasing the strength and reducing the debility and physical exhaustion after the delivery. It supports joints and muscles, reduces stress and pain, and improves the feeling of general well-being.
