Product Description

When the body is full of amavisha (reactive toxins), it can be a delicate process to remove the toxins without creating more damage to the tissues and organs. DGL (deglycyrrhized licorice) Transdermal Cream provides an effective and safe method to reduce toxicity in the body.

According the ancient, Ayurvedic Sanskrit texts, yashtimadhu (licorice) is very effective for buffering the highly acidic nature of amavisha toxins. Because of its susnigdha guna (good lubricating quality) it is also able to bind them and slide them out of the body.

However, when licorice is taken internally, the liver and digestive system must be in good working order for licorice (or any herb) to be effective. Unfortunately, this is never the case when someone has a build-up of toxins in the body. If there are toxins in the blood, it must be that the liver has become overwhelmed with toxins itself.

Crude herbs taken internally must pass through the digestive system and liver before they can be used by the body. If the digestion is weak, the body will make ama (partially digested material) of the herb, and if the liver is full of toxins, the subtle vibration of the herb will be corrupted by the destructive vibrations of such a large quantity of toxins sitting in the liver. In either case, the herb will not be very effective at removing toxins in the rest of the body.

Vaidya Mishra's DGL Transdermal Cream does not contain the crude herb. Instead, it contains only the sukshma bhag (subtlest fraction of the herb) and the prabhavas (special properties of the herb). Because it does not contain the crude herb, it does not need to processed by the digestive system or liver. This cream is applied to the skin and is absorbed transdermally to the blood stream.

Through the use of this transdermal cream, you can bypass the digestive system and allow the essence of the herb to reach the blood and all the organs and tissues where toxins may be hiding. In this way, DGL Transdermal Cream is able to help clean the blood and tissues, alkalize the nadis (channels), and gently cool the body in preparation for the use of more powerful herbs to detoxify the liver. It also can be used during liver detox to help neutralize the acidic toxins coming out of the liver.

    I have had an allergic reaction on my face for three months where I have been itching and my skin has been drying out and there was absolutely nothing that seemed to help and my face felt warm as well . A friend recommended this to me, she said it was a cooling cream. I use it on my face and on the bottom of my spine going up as far as I can reach. I am so happy as I'm feeling almost normal again.

  5. Really easy on my back 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Mar 2018

    I do a spinal sweep at night with a little bit of this and sleep with the cream on. It last a long time, probably two or three months. I have IBS-C, and my entire back becomes inflammed and sore to the point of me having to lay in my bed in pain when I’m constipated. This cream really helps cool my inflammation and bypasses me having to ingest licorice which does not work well with my stomach. It works so much better than any pharmaceutical drug that I’ve tried for back pain, although it requires regular applying to see an effect.

  6. Used since 2006 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 31st Mar 2015

    After I was recovering from very harsh chemo for a gastric lymphoma, I was unbearably acidic. Nothing had worked in western medicine, Chinese medicine and even Ayurvedic medicine with another practitioner. Dr. Mishra prescribed this cream, along with various nectars to put in my water, (including DGL) and together they solved the problem. I still use it.

  7. Stomach Protector 5 Star Review

  8. Effective cooling 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Jun 2013

    When applied as directed I can feel the cooling effect deep in my spine. It's not like a peppermint menthol cool, the effect is more like have cool water running down your spine. I can also apply it to insect bites to immediately relieve redness and itching.

  9. Crucial 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Apr 2013

    A must have product. Especially if using the liver clay regularly. I also put it on my spine and eczema spots which helps tremendously. Truly an essential product for those who run a bit hot.
