Dear Madam,
I am Suresh Maharana (Age: 27 yrs.)_belongs to India, presently working in Oman. I do computer related works throughout the day.

History & Present condition:
When I was 11 years old, I felt tremor in my hand while writing or threading a needle. Gradually, the tremor started increasing and the situation was worse during my college days (age 16 to 20). While I was 22 yrs. old the tremor started spreading to my arm, hand and sometimes I feel it on head and other body parts during movements such as eating and writing. Now-a-days my fingers on both hands also started shivering making it difficult for me to work on computer. I feel body weakness also. The situation get worsen when I feel nervous.   
The doctor named my problem as “Essential Tremor”.

Treatment taken:
I consulted online with an Ayurvedic doctor. He suggested me for
Oral medication:
1)mucuna pruriens -30 g with butter milk per day and continue it for 6 months.
2)Aswagadha and satavari 2 capsule of both twice a day.

Since these medicines are not available hear I am trying get it from india.

Could you suggest me:
1)shall I take 30g or should I start with 5g and gradually I will increase to 30g?
2)Shall I take 2capsual of aswagandha and satabari or should I take 1capsual of each twice a day??

Dear Mr Suresh

Sorry for delayed reply. Your condition is essential tremors only. It may get worsen by any stress physical or mental. deep breathing exercises and relaxation techniques will help you in long run.
Certainly i will advice you to start with low dose only and whatever dose makes you comfortable with your problem you can stop there. You can also take it with milk. Ashwgandha and shatavari tabs or caps will help you regain vitality. you can start by one one each no problem either. These days extracts are there so just check the dose. If you want to take raw ashwagnadha you can start with 5 gms a day and shatvari at least 3 gms a day. Medicines mostly we send by courier personally i prefer raw herb without extracting some thing or other thing. Take all these for around two months if it doesn't help we have other medicines you can write mail.

Have good health
