Product Description

Kanchanar powder has been used in Ayurveda to treat growths and swollen glands since the ancient texts were written thousands of years ago.

Bhava Prakash writes that kanchanar is gandamalapaha (capable of reducing glandular swelling in the neck, where it looks like the patient is wearing a garland of swollen glands).

Kanchanar is an ornamental tree (bauhinia variegata) with large orchid-like flowers. It also grows wild in India and the Far-East. Vaidya Mishra's kanchanar powder is wildcrafted and does not come in contact with chemicals or anything that might influence its potency.

The Importance Of How The Herb Is Handled

Vaidya Mishra is very strict about the quality control of the herbs he uses. According to Vaidya Mishra's tradition, the power of any herb lies in its subtle vibration.

If the herb is exposed to chemicals, dirty environment or high electromagnetic radiation during growth, storage or preparation the vibrational potency will be diminished. Worse yet, chemical residues can damage your body.

Vaidya Mishra would rather not use an herb than to sell one that does not live up to the high standards he holds. This includes herbs that are simply too old. If the time between harvest and consumption is too great, the effectiveness of the herb will also be much less.

It is important, when choosing any herbal product, or food item, to consider the actual state of the item. This can sometimes be determined by smell or just by looking, though chemical contamination may be much harder to discover.

You don't have to become an expert in detecting chemical contaminants or depleted potency because Vaidya Mishra is careful to inspect every herb he sells. His main reason for doing this is to ensure that his products are effective.

If the vibrational potency of the herb is damaged, how much can it help to improve an imbalance in the human body? It is like trying to gain inspiration from a depressed poet.

Kanchanar For Unusual Growths

While kanchanar should not be used as a substitute for conventional medical treatment, it may be a help. When it is used in conjunction with Vaidya Mishra's SVA diet, it has been effective for swollen glands or abnormal growths, according to some of the doctors that Vaidya Mishra has trained.

Always bring your health concerns first to your physician and follow his or her advice regarding growths and swellings. It is important not to delay conventional medical treatment.

We offer kanchanar as an interesting side-approach, worth exploring but only if approved by your doctor. There is no modern research on using kanchanar for reducing growths, but the ancient texts support this theory and Vaidya Mishra's experience upholds it.

Kanchanar, according to Bhava Prakash, is grahi (enhancing absorption of excess fluid in swollen areas), tuvera (fast moving and deeply penetrating into high-growth areas) and hima (cooling for inflammation). These properties are all helpful in the case of growths and swellings.

Other Uses of Kanchanar According To The Ancient Texts

The Ayurvedic texts mention that kanchanar is useful in the case of kushta (chronic skin disease), guda bramsha (rectal prolapse), vrana (ulcers - not necessarily peptic),raktapitta (hemorrhaging due to high pitta and acidic toxins in the body) and several others.
