Ayulink: Can anyone explain abt kshirpak, and it's specific recipe
Dr. Jyoti Ashok: In vataja type of pain like whole body pain , shifting in nature, & people sitting in AC whole day & suffering from pain I advise lashuna kshirapaka.
5 globs of lashuna crushed boiled with equal quantity milk & water. Boiled till kshiravashesha & drink twice a day.  2) in dry cough I advise yashti kshrapaka( 1/2 tsp yashti churna boiled in milk & water)& drink by adding ghee to it.
I have got good results in both .

Dr. R Prathiban: Can anyone say about dosage and frequency for kshirapak?  Any contraindications? Lashuna + kshira isn't virudha combination?
Dr. Kalpesh Vani: Not viruddha as lashun lacks amla ras and hence it's shuddhi is in Takra
Dr. R Prathiban: It is virya viruddha combination. Lasuna kshirapaka is explained in gulma, in that specific condition of that disease this combination of lashuna and ksheera was necessary

A special recipe for specific purpose described in classical books and found very effective since hundreds of years. It is not considered as Viruddh - incompatible. I would like to know more about marichi kshirpak. Shatavari kshirpak is good galactogauge - increase milk production during breast feeding. This is very commonly prescribed by ayurvedic gynecologist.

31503: For IUGR treatment Shatavari n Ashwagandha siddha kshirpak
 Vd. Sachin Kadlag: Shatavari is bruhan , guru , so this question comes in mind but it also has tikta rasa , vatapittaghnata , and gives bala which is required after jirna jwara. ananta is also jwaraghna ( one of the content in raktapachak that is satat jwara kwatha charak chikitsa 3/ 198-199)  all I use samapramana for 80 ml of milk 80 ml water and each amruta ananta shatavari churna each in range of minimum  2.5 gm to 5  gm as per desired.. boil it till milk remains filter it and add sitopala (khadishakkar ) if required

Dr. Jaya Sambhus: Arjun kshirpak works better with bala in 3:1 proportion .  Arjun is vatkar when used as single herb , bala balance it. Sariva kshirpak used in 6th month of anc to increase complexion. Ashok + bala kshirpak works in hormonal imbalance. Vataj hrudrog salvan  kshirpak.
Dr Piyushbhai Prajapati: No  Just do 1/4 by knife. In winter,or in other season unriped and uncut

Dr. Amrish A Shah: All ksheer pak is Good

Vd Limesh Khatri: Bcz its not easy to use in present fastest life. Peoples are not agree to prepare at home.We needs to give them easy to use and practical approach products
Ayulink: Yes. That's my question too
Vd Limesh Khatri: Xir pak prepration dont have long self life
Dr. Pritam Veer: yes but their karmuktwa is more than asawas. i.e.we are unable to convince our pt
Vd Limesh Khatri: Personally I am using it in my of my Garbhasankar patient. Through preparing them mentally.Especially in case of complicated pragnancy.. do not provide any alternate of xirpaak prepration.Generally yastadi xir paak
Dr. R Prathiban: Due to non availability of readymade kshirapak, always fresh preparations needed
Vd Limesh Khatri: Chandan+ yastimadhu + shatavari xir pak. Madhur gan aushadhi xir paak. All mansanumasik aushadhi xir paak. Xir pak has 24hrs selflife only.

1/4 bhallatak +10 gram rice + 100 ml water+ 100 ml milk. Boil & reduced to 100 ml.
Used in amavat , chronic cases of psoriasis,CA oesophagus.
Dr. R Prathiban: Nowadays source of milk is questionable, will pausteutized milk have same effect as other milks, whether there is difference in medicinal effect if aja kshira, gow kshira, mahisha kshira etc used in kshira pak?
Vd Limesh Khatri: Use My approach always to be practical.. what ever  type avilable in your you can use. But the best option in general is cow milk some as per different indications of ayurveda. So explain to patient further next upto patient. Our work is to guide and make aware to patient
Dr. Pritam Veer: can we discuss dose and duration practically prescribed ? means how much Raw material should be taken.
Ayulink: And I would like to know the logic of kshirpak also.
Gary Yuen: That is also my question. Reading about it, I think it would a similar effect though pasteurized milk would have other negative health effects. I believe it is the milk fat, as fat has been shown to help increase absorption even in food. Some studies suggest it's the milk casein (protein) that helps protect ingredients and make them available for digestion. If it is mainly the fat, maybe water and ghee would work as well.
For the mechanism of why kshirapak works, another study uses vidari and suggests it's possibly the isoflavones. It also mentions soya has a similar effect so soymilk may work though I don't think any comparison has been done.
Dr. Vasupradha R: And also it has been noted that the pregnancy complications like eclampsia, etc are almost nil with the gokshura ksheerapakam
Dr. Kalpesh Vani: Shatavari and Gokshur kshirpak in mutragat raktasrav
 Dr. Shantanandkumar: Yes I am using  it is giving good result and maintenance bp
Mr. Jayesh patel: We can prepare freeze dried kshir pak in powder form and the is packed in 5 gram sachet so one can use is everyday easily. Dried powder retains 100 % properties. We have done trials with patients and found to be equally effective.
Dr. V B. Maheshwari: So how should we prepare that type of ksheerpaka or is it available in market?
Mr. Jayesh patel: Not available in market. It is custom made. Can be used for 2 years. Period of usage can be prescribed by a  doctor. Self life is 2 yrs. It is prepared in bulk say 10 kg. 50 kg. Than dried. Dried powder may be 15% to 20% of of the condensed milk preparation. The advantage is one does not have to prepare it everyday. We did it for ayurveda practitioner and he successfully used for his patients.
