Dear Girilal,

Have you tried this medicine at higher potencies say 12c and above? I tried at 12c and gave me good results as mentioned in MM. Is it a poisonous herb when consumed raw?

Thanks and regards
Garcot

It is interesting to note that Justicia Adhatoda is a medicine which has been used for over 2000 years in Sri Lanka in the Ayurvedha. It is known here as ADATHODA and I am informed by an Ayurvedic physician that it is widely used even today a specific for respiratory ailments. It is usually boiled down with other medicinal roots, leaves and bark into a decoction which is usually very bitter in taste and gulped down.

I remember that during my childhood my uncle who was a well known Ayurvedic physician used to give me Adathoda with other medicines in the early 1930's to cure the flu with a cough and cold. I hated his decoctions which eventually were found to be life saving as medicine as we know it today was hardly known at that time here in Sri Lanka then known as Ceylon.

It Grows all over India but most often on the low mountains. There is difference in homeopathy and ayurvadic prepration. In ayurveda, a tea is made but in homeopathy, flowers are soaked in liquid and then removed after few days, then more flowers in the same liquid, as the liquid becomes saturated, it is called Q.
