How to test Shilajit Purity - 

Shilajit is a natural substance or mineral found under or near the rocks of Himalaya, it has got lot of medicinal properties and many of companies are formulating shilajit preparations out of this. As it has become very popular and common worldwide, it is really important to know how to test shilajit!! Shilajit is rich in fulvic acids that has ability to form chelating compounds with heavy metals. Fulvic acids are dibasis with low molecular weight and they have 2 hydrogen ions. These ions combine with minerals and form colloids. These ionic colloids can pass easily through membranes.

Why a lot of Fake Products in Market?
So many companies are selling shilajit fake products as a part of business and to earn money because:
  • It is one of the rarest substance in the world.
  • It is considered as a maharas means one that is believed to cure almost all the ailments of body.
  • It is costly.
  • It is difficult to get.
  • It is top selling product for male sex related problems.

 How to Test Shilajit Purity and Authenticity? 
There are so many tests explained to know purity of shilajit and to know standardized extracts of it so that you will get the confidence that you have real one with you. These below mention tests will let you know whether compound is 100 percent shilajit or not…

Solubility – Pure Shilajit get dissolves completely in plain or warm water. When shilajit powder is poured over a glass of water, its particles start dissolving slowly in the water and within very short time of period it gets fully dissolve and give black golden color to water. Like this we can make out that shilajit is pure, if it doesn’t mix properly in water, it is not pure one and not of good quality.

Insolubility – Pure shilajit is not soluble in vodka or alcohol. When shilajit powder is mixed with alcohol, it doesn’t not dissolve or mix properly with it and form some clots or so. This is another easy method to know shilajit’s purity.

Can absorb heavy metals – pure shilajit has the capacity to absorb heavy metals like parad or mercury. Take 1 tsp. of pure shilajit powder in a bowl, add little bit of mercury and 1 tsp. of water to mix. Mix well for some time, you will notice slowly mercury will break down in to small particles. Mix it for 5 min or so and you will find that whole mercury is mixed completely with shilajit.

Flame – When pure shilajit comes in contact with fire or flame, it does not burn or light but start bubbling to produce an ash like substance at the end. This is again an easy test to know shilajit purity.

Pliability – Pure shilajit will always hold its form and not separate into clumps. It can melt in hand and become sticky, goosy substance and becomes very hard when kept in refrigerator.

An Ayurvedic herb for treatment of Liver failure and other liver ailments like fatty liver. 

Katuki ( Picrorrhiza kurrao ) The literal meaning of Katuki in Sanskrit language is bitter. This is a small delicate herb which likes to grow only in pristine environs of snow clad Himalayan mountains. There are traders, manufacturers nowadays trying to grow it in lower Himalayas (with difficulty) due to its growing demand and extensive therapeutic benefits.

Ancient references – The most comprehensive and authoritative text on Ayurvedic medicine is Charak Samhita written more than 2500 years ago from now.
The author Maharishi Charak has put this bitter herb in the category of “Bhedniya mahakashaya” in 4th Chapter of Sutrasthana i.e. category of purging, liver cleansing, colon cleansing herbs. There are 9 more herbs in this category. These are Nishoth ( Turpeth- Operculina turpethemum),  Ark ( Maddar – Calotropis procera), Erand ( Castor- Ricinus communis), Laangli ( Gloriosa superba),  Chitra ( Danti-Baliospermum montanum),  Chitrak ( Plumbago zeylanica ), Shankhini, Chirbilv ( Haloptela integrifolia), Swarnkshiri ( Argemone Mexicana), Katuki ( Picrorrhiza kurrao)

Properties of Katuki and Mechanism of action according to Ayurveda – Picrorrhiza kurrao is cooling and removal of excessive fire energy from the body. In Ayurveda it is mentioned as “katuki pitta virechana sarvshreshtha” i.e. Kutki is best of removal of excessive Pitta from the body via colon. It removes toxins from the colon and is cooling in nature.

Its bitter in taste i.e. made from Air + Ether elements ( Vayu and Aakash). These are opposite properties of Fire element (Pitta –Heat) and  Earth + Water elements ( Kapha )
Diseases caused by Pitta and Kapha respond quickly to use of Katuki. These are all the diseases which makes your fatty and acidic.  So Katuki is anti acidit and anti fat and cooling in nature. Anti acid means it creates alkaline media in the blood. So it’s good for Acne, Pimples, complicated skin disorders, URIC ACID, urea, creatinine etc.  It’s beneficial in liver and kidney failure, Diabetes, Cancers of liver, Skin and Psoriasis.

Practical uses of Katuki

There is not a single preparation in Ayurvedic medicines for liver problems which do not contain Katuki. This is nature’s best cholagogue i.e. helps to increase contractions of gall bladder and take out the secretions. This helps in improved digestion, regulation of fat, Proteins and carbohydrate metabolism. Since liver is the seat of all metabolism, the action leads to correction of so many disorders
Hypothyroidism, Diabetes, Uric acid, Obesity, High urea and Creatinine, Psoriasis, Sluggish metabolism, too much heat and aggression, Negative thoughts in mind like Aggression, Anger, Jealousy, hatred as Katuki is cooling in nature.

     (Aggression, Loose temperament, heat in the body, uric acid, urea, creatinine, itching in the body are all benefited by use of Katuki )
     2. LOSS OF BELLY FAT – Since Katuki helps to remove fats from liver, slowly the belly fat is also removed by liver by regular use of Katuki.

Message by Dr. Vikram Chauhan 
(Founder of Planet Ayurveda )  –

Message to People -   Katuki Is now endangered species of plants. It is our duty to spread the message to farmers of higher Himalayan region to cultivate this rare herb organically as this will not help them economically but also help many chronic patients of liver ailments.  We are using this herb in our formulations. The results are great. 

The message to liver patients – Don’t loose hope. Katuki is there to help you to fight your liver problem. Other than Katuki, there are many more beautiful, effective herbs for liver ailments on this earth. You just need the right one and right combination.

The message to Doctors – It will be good if you look at Katuki and other ayurvedic herbs as God’s creation for a reason. Do more research on it before saying – No, this won’t work and there is no hope.

Names of Katuki in other languages –
Sanskrit – Katukaa, Katurohini, Katuki, Katukikaa, Krishnbheda, Chakraangi, Shatparvaa, Arishta, Ashokarohinya, Shakuladdni, Kaandruhaa, Matsyashakalaa
Chinese – Hu Huang Lian meaning Barbarian yellow Link
Assamese -  Katki, Kutki
English – Hellebore ( Although there are many more plants named Hellebore in English) So it’s better to look for Picrrhoza kurrao, Picrrohiza scrophularia.
All other Indian languages – Mostly call it Katuki and Rohini

Treatment in Ayurveda for Anal Fistula

Anal fistula is a troublesome, disturbing disease which affects many people. It is also called fistula-in-ano. It is an abnormal passage between peri-anal skin connecting it to the anal canal or rectum. There is often presence of anal abscess. The fistula results often in people having peri anal abscess earlier. In many patients, the abscess is not visible or not diagnosed and directly fistula is seen. There is oozing of pus, infected fluid and sometimes blood from the fistula. The anal abscess generally develops after a small anal gland is infected and abscess is formed there. Unhygienic lifestyle, constipation, long sitting hours, consumption of non-fiber rich diet. Sometimes the anal fistula can develop as a complication of surgery as well.

Main symptoms of Anal fistula are

1.   Pain around anal region ( Throbbing and worsens while sitting)  
2.   Pus discharge from the external opening
3.   Bloody discharge
4.   Pain during the passing of stools
5.   Discomfort during sitting
6.   Frothy, foul smelling stools
7.   Swelling, redness and tenderness in the anal region

There are various ayurvedic remedies which are very effective in treatment of Anal fistula. These herbal remedies are 100 % natural and does not cause any side effects.

Treatment in Ayurveda and home remedies for Anal fistula

Fistula is an abnormal passage from anal canal to outer skin. It can be very very painful in severe conditions. It’s very important to maintain the hygiene of the fistula and the adjoining area. There are certain ayurvedic herbs and natural remedies which can be very useful to heal the fistula and correct the anomaly. These remedies give instant results which can be visible within first 2 weeks of usage.  

Role of High Fiber Diet in treatment of Anal fistula-

High fiber diet has a big role to play in treatment of anal fistula, piles and fissures. The constipation puts a lot of burden in lower anal canal leading to its stretching, painful defecation and swelling. This leads to more abscess formation, stiffness, redness and aggravation of pain. Fruits are rich source of natural fiber. Papaya, Cabbage, Pears, Apples, Melons, Grapes are all good for relieving constipation. Vegetable soups are also very important part of diet.
What is Ama and it’s role in Fistula
“AMA” is the term used in Ayurveda for endotoxins. The “Ama” are endotoxins formed in the intestines due to faulty digestion. The low digestive fire leads to formation of fermentation inside the intestines and that in turn can increase the formation of pus and mucus. The formation of “Ama” is increased if the food is rich in fast foods, packaged food, burgers, pizzas, non-veg diet and other heavy greasy items. Cheese is also not good in this case. Milk and dairy products should also be avoided.

Sometimes if the abscess is too much, it may be drained out physically by a surgeon but this does not heal the fistula completely. Antibiotics are also of temporary help. So Ayurvedic herbs should be used to heal the fistula completely.

Yes, there are certain Ayurvedic medicines which work like natural antibiotics. One of the reasons behind the development of fistula is an improper lifestyle and unhealthy eating. Many people have a habit of regularly eating food that prepared from flour with lots of sugar, spices and oil, which are very harmful for your health.

Healthy eating habits are very important to get rid of this disease permanently. White bread, Pasta, refined flour should be restricted. Bread with grains is recommended. All grains are good source of natural fiber. So they are fine.

Fistula Care Package –
Fistula Care package is a combination of Ayurvedic medicines which are tried and tested several time by many Ayurvedic experts world wide.  The combination is made up of
1.   Tab.Triphala Guggul  - 2 twice daily  ( 1 bottle )
2.   Cap. Curcumin – 2 twice daily ( 2 bottles )
3.   Vara Churna – 1 teaspoonful twice daily ( After meals with warm water) – 2 Jars of 100 gm each
4.   Nirgundi Oil – Apply locally after defecation ( inside the anal canal)


These are ayurvedic medicines which help to reduce the swelling, pain and dry the pus. The results are permanent and have been proved to be successful in many patients who were suffering from anal fistula.

The herbs are anti-inflammatory, natural antibiotics, rich in natural fiber and nutritive in nature. Nirgundi oil is natural antiseptic.  In Sitz Bath, We recommend Neem leaves decoction to be used rather than chemicals. Neem leaves or neem capsules can be procured at Neem capsules can be opened up to use the extract to be boiled in water and made into decoction and used for the Sitz Bath.

Consuming radishes, carrots, beetroots, cabbages, broccoli is very important to provide necessary natural vitamins to your body. This helps in healing.

Drink warm water and consume all the above mentioned Ayurvedic medicines for anal fistula together, about 30 minutes after meals.
