Dr. J. T. Contractor: To add the last line to our discussion on coriander: it's alkaloid is instigative for secretion of digestive enzymes
Germany Helga Fuchs: What I know about coriander is already said her.

Dr. Bhavesh Modh: Imaging fact abut coriander  cultivation. seed-corn  of coriander  must be blurt out  (ભરડી લેવા) before sowing  for best crop. The name coriander is derived from the Greek word koris, which means bug. It may have earned this name because of the  "buggy" offensive smell that it has when unripe. The Latin name for coriander is Coriandrum sativum. (That's different Morden & Ayurveda You can see previous msg. ) The use of coriander can be traced back to 5,000 BC, making it one of the world's oldest spices. It is native to the Mediterranean and Middle Eastern regions and has been known in Asian countries for thousands of years. Coriander was cultivated in ancient Egypt and given mention in the Old Testament. It was used as a spice in both Greek and Roman cultures, the latter using it to preserve meats and flavor breads. The early physicians, including Hippocrates, used coriander for its medicinal properties, including as an aromatic stimulant.
The Russian Federation, India, Morocco and Holland are among the countries that commercially produce coriander seeds. Coriander leaves (cilantro) are featured in the culinary traditions of Latin American, Indian and Chinese cuisine.
* 1/4 th cup (about 4gm) coriander leaves (non cooked ) have 270 iu  Vitamin - A.

Dr. Shriniwas Gujjarwar: Coriander leaves juice is the antidote of bhallataka side effects.

Dr. Bhavesh Modh: Nutritional value of Dry coriander seeds 1TSP approx  5gm)
Only Vita C - 1.1 mg  (Other  vita. R absent )
Calcium- 35.4 mg
Iron-0.8 mg
Magnesium - 16.5 mg
Phosphorus - 20.5 mg
Potassium-63.3 mg
Sodium - 1.8 mg
Zinc - 0.2 mg
Manganese - 0.1 mg
Phytosterols - 2.3mg

 so, easily  understand  why Unani Hakim's use dry coriander seeds for  boost libido (lust)

Dr. Prerak Shah: What I understand is, we use fresh coriander leaves from kitchen garden. And you can make a paste out of it, which can be squeezed in cloth to get fresh juice.

Exi Kir Moo: Take fresh Coriender. Cut it. Put it in juicer. Collect the juice in a glass. We can add Lemon drops, salt and paper powder. Black salt (Sanchar) is better than white salt in coriender juice.

Dr. Prerak Shah: Pl do not add anything in fresh juice, if you want to use it as a eye drop or Nasya.

1. Trushna nigrahana ( control of thirst)
2. Shitaprashmana ( control of coldness)
It's specially useful in aamaj type of trushna  (i.e. thirst developed due to indigestion).
 Due to its shitaprashamana effect it's advisable in shita ritu which are hemant , shishir  and also in Varsha ritu ( helpful for relief with coldness in winter and monsoon season ).
- dhanyak can be used in sthoulya ( obesity) , prameha,   and other santarpana janya diseases/conditions orally as well as externally

Dr. Sujata Vaidya: Corriander best source of sunlight energy. Good to all wellness🍀

Vd. Piyush Prajapati: Dhanyak  Him has so much practical uses.  Usually in summer..
burning of footsole,burning in abdomen,burning mituration,heavy tonsilitis in summer due to drink cool water etc,In Sun stroke,In summer diarrhoea also used it after adding little Sunthi Churna.
Also when u have continued kidney stone ,then using Dhanyak him thrice a day or as needed is much effective..

It's magical Summer medicine..

Dr. Arvind Shahane: Dhanyak him with variyali also more effective in above conditions

Vd. Piyush Prajapati: In infertility,Dhanyak Him is also used by paitik samprapti. Dhanyak mixed with Satahva.

Vd. Sachin Kadlag: Dhanyak siddha/pakwa  jala is said to be pathya ( beneficial) in Vataj Gulma.  Reference Charak chikitsa 5/111

Dr. Mahavir Patil: dhanyak and infertility...plz tell more sirji

Vd. Sachin Kadlag: Coriander ( ardra - fresh from) when applied locally as lepa it removes kushtha and mandal .
reference Charak chikitsa 7/122

Dr Feroz Khan: When burning of eye its swaras can be used 2to4 drops.BD.can relives also redness.

Dr. Arvind panchal: My own practical experience of Dhanyak's too good for burning micturation....

Vd. Sachin Kadlag: Coriander is useful In shushka arsha ( non bleeding piles)  in many ways
1. It's indicated for siddha ghrita along with other aushadhi dravyas.
2.  In diet of arsha patient shaka ( vegetables both leafy and fruit type) is to be given mixed with dhanyak and sunthi

Dr. Arvind panchal: One question....please reply....why we add coriander with GUD in celebration of some muhurt...??

Vd. Sachin Kadlag: For celebrating Shubha muhurta we use GUD as  it is sweet but in ayurvedic perspective GUD is krumikar , to overcome that we add coriander which is Krimighna as well as rochana,  and mukha daurgandhyahar. Coriander and Gud combination is balancing in many ways. Gud is snigdha , kledakar  while coriander is ruksha , kledashoshak. Gud is guru (heavy to digest) , coriander is dipan ( increases appetite and improves digestion ). Pandu , udar , pinas , prameha , gulma , agnimandya , atisar , pleeha vriddhi in these diseases /conditions  drinking water is not beneficial.
But if patient cannot bear thirst , then dhanyak siddha jala mixed with sugar and honey should be given to drink. Reference charak chikitsa 22/59-61

Dr. Rahul: Dhane + jeere + badishep seeds along wid Chia seeds &  niranjan phal is a grt combination of excess heat in body... Especially for pitta prakriti patients having prblms in summer season...

Vd. Piyush Prajapati: Coriander has shape similar to internal media of kidney.. It's kidney purifier.. In summer,we drink sometimes less water.. so it's not easy to detoxify some contents from body by purification of blood in kidney.  So there is loaded work .. so we use coriander as normal diet in every food and salad in this summer..  
So that KIDNEY get relaxed by proper work of purification.
Also it makes urine Alkaline.. so also itself it prevents to become stones in kidney..
Sometimes we get this one (parsely) instead of Cilantro..
