Pittagulma (पित्तगुल्म) If pitta-gulma is caused by unctuous and hot things, then sraṃsana (mild laxative) is useful. If it is caused by ununctuous and hot things, then ghee is excellent for its alleviation. The patient of pitta-gulma should be given oleation, mild purgation and medicated enema therapies and for all these, drugs belonging to kākolyādi, mahātikta and vāsādi groups should be used. Pitta-gulma caused by unctuous and hot things should be treated by the administration of kampillaka with honey. For purgation, the patient may be given the juice of drākṣā along with jaggery.
