Mayura shikha is an herb that has been used in Ayurveda for centuries. It is a member of the parsley family and has a long history of use as a medicine.

Mayura shikha's main use is as an anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial agent, but it also has some other uses. For example, it is used to treat diabetes and chronic pain, as well as gastrointestinal issues like diarrhea and constipation. It can also be used to treat snakebites or other types of poisoning.

It's most common use, however, is in treating hyperglycemia—a condition marked by high levels of sugar in the blood—which is seen in diabetics and those with kidney disease. A decoction of Mayura shikha is given to treat this condition, along with cold infusion or fresh juice made from Mayura Shikha roots (or the bark).

This combination works well because both herbs are anti-inflammatory agents that help manage blood glucose levels without causing hypoglycemia or having any other negative side effects like nausea or vomiting (which can happen when using insulin too soon after ingesting sugar). Mayura shikha can also be used topically on wounds or burns to promote healing.
