Narikela Khanda: You can make this Hyperacidity medicine at home!

The problems of gastritis and hyperacidity has plagued the modern era. From young children to aged-people, stomach woes are a constant. That’s why, I thought of sharing the gem to cure hyperacidity – Narikela Khanda.

Narikela is an amazing Ayurvedic medicine for hyperacidity. But in this lockdown will it be easy to get it? Well, yes!

Because you can make it yourself right at your home.

Late Dr. Indudhar Alagundimath taught me this classical Ayurvedic medicine. 

And today, I am going to pass on this knowledge to you all.

With a hope that you share and spread this simple remedy. As it can bring relief to the ones fighting with the constant torments of Hyperacidity!

My story of this recipe!

Teachers are like a lighthouse that illuminates the dark sea. They know much more than they show!

Dr. Indudhar was a very charming and skilled professor. He enlightened us on pharmacology concepts in my Ayurvedic college, Belagavi.

There was something so positive and alluring about him. Students never missed his lecture.

His lectures were more fun than our gaiety in the canteen.

His teaching skills were exceptional. He was a master in delivering his lessons wrapped in the foil of practicality and stories. His words could capture even the ficklest minds.

It was our last practical of the year and he sent the peon to pluck all the coconuts from the herbal garden.

This created a lot of buzz among the students keeping everyone hooked ‘what was he up to’!

After getting all the coconuts in the room he asked us to prepare coconut burfi!

We were all baffled!

He then laughed and revealed that it’s not just a burfi. It’s a medicine!

No one could throw the twist better than this legend.

Narikela Khanda – An Ayurvedic medicine

Narikela Khanda is a semi-solid Ayurvedic medicine for hyperacidity.

We use the pulp of Narikela Phala to make this medicine. Narikela or coconut is very nutritious. It is rich in fibre, vitamins, and minerals. 

In ancient times, it was a must-have for emergency situations. Our grannies prepared and preserved it for the times when the tummy does not behave well.

This crisis of lockdown has taken us back to good old times. With ample time and nothing much to do, you too can make this concoction at your own home. Check your kitchen for the following ingredients.
