If you are facing any of such issues, you should immediately call your doctor for advice. Kadha is good and it boosts the immunity, but it is not suitable for every body. So if your body is having any issues to digest the Kadha, then it’s better to find other alternatives. While making Kadha, one has to be really careful about the quantity of herbs and spices that are being used to make it.
