Laryngitis (Hoarseness Or Loss Of Voice)
The anti-inflammatory and soothing action of Khadiradi Vati reduces inflammation of larynx (voice box).

If hoarseness is caused by overuse, then Ashwagandha extract should also be used with milk in addition to Khadiradi Vati.Sitopaladi Churna, Yashad (Jasad) Bhasma and Gandhak Rasayan with honey should also be used with Khadiradi Vati for quick relief.
Mouth Ulcers & Stomatitis
Khadiradi Vati reduces pain and burning sensation associated with mouth ulcer. It reduces inflammation of mucus membranes, which gives relief in Stomatitis. For best results, licorice (Mulethi or Yashtimadhu or Glycyrrhiza Glabra) should also be used in such condition.
Sore Throat (Pharyngitis)
In combination with Sitopaladi Churna, Yashad (Jasad) Bhasma and Gandhak Rasayan, taking Khadiradi Vati provides quick relief in sore throat by its emollient (soothing) action. In addition to this, Khadiradi Vati also inhibits the growth of bacteria, which may be a cause of sore throat.
Tonsillitis & Tonsils Infections
