Benefits of Dhanwantaram Kwatham

Benefits of Dhanwantaram Kwatham

By Vaidya Vishwanath February 01, 2023


Dhanwantaram Kwatham (tablets) supports all types of vata-vyadhi (vata disorders) and is especially supportive for dhatu-kshaya-janya vata rogas (vata disorders causing depletion). Dhanwantaram Kwatham supports general fatigue and depletion, postpartum rejuvenation, rheumatic disorders, degenerative disorders, and physical trauma.

When vata dosha is aggravated it can cause many types of disorders and especially those related to physical pain. The aggravated vata dosha blocks the circulatory channels and causes tissue depletion and malnutrition. There is an Ayurvedic saying: “Where there is pain, there is always vata dosha.” The ultimate support for pain is balancing vata dosha through diet, lifestyle and herbal supplements.

Dhanwantaram Kwatham balances both vata and pitta dosha. The main herbs are bala (increases strength) and dasamula (formula with ten roots) that both support pain and inflammation of the joints, muscles, bones, and nerves.

Dhanwantaram Kwatham supports conditions related to vata and pitta imbalance.

  1. Nervine Tonic – supports nerves.
