Benefits & Medicinal Uses

Kidney Stones & Renal Colic

Hajrul Yahood Bhasma has lithontriptic and diuretic action in the body, which helps dissolving and pushing the kidney stone along the course of the ureter. The most important thing is that it also has anodyne action, which absolutely reduces renal colic within first 2 to 3 dosages. Hazrul Yahud Bhasma reduces following symptoms:

  • Renal colic (pain caused by kidney stones)
  • Burning sensation in the urine
  • Dysuria (difficult or painful urination)


Crystalluria is a condition in which crystals are found in the urine. It occurs due to either urinary calculi or side effects of certain medicines. The medicines causing Crystalluria are penicillin and sulfonamides.

Hajrul Yahood Bhasma along with Chandraprabha Vati helps in such condition. A month course with these remedies eliminates the Crystalluria. In case, Crystalluria recurs repeatedly, then the course with these remedies should be taken for at least three months. In addition to this, adding Chandanasava in the treatment helps as adjuvant.
