Patha or Laghupatha is an Indian traditional medicine whose roots are used for medicinal purposes. It helps to manage diarrhea by preventing the growth of bacteria responsible for causing diarrhea, as well as preventing the loss of fluid from the body due to its antimicrobial and antidiarrheal properties.
Patha helps to manage asthma by enhancing immunity and preventing inflammation of the respiratory passages due to its immunomodulatory and anti-inflammatory properties. This clears the blockage of respiratory passages and helps to release mucus.
Ayurveda also supports its use for managing coughs due to its Kapha balancing property. Taking Patha powder along with honey twice daily helps to clear mucus which provides relief from the symptoms of cough and asthma. Patha powder also helps to improve male sexual health due to its Vrishya (aphrodisiac) properties and is also useful for managing menstrual problems like pain or cramps during periods due to its Vata balancing property.
Patha helps in managing various skin problems like infections and dermatitis due to its antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties. Applying Patha paste along with honey promotes faster wound healing due to its Ropan (healing) property. Rubbing Patha paste along with honey on your gums and teeth also helps to get relief from toothache and swelling.
