We are into Asafoetida (Hing) Business since last 6 decades when grandfather of Shri Jagdish Gambhir Hingwala. Late Shri Daulatram Gambhir along with his son L/Shri Basantlal Gambhir, use to supply Hing to Indian markets popularly known as Maharaja Hing from Multan (now in Pakistan).
Whooping cough, asthma and bronchitis can all be treated with asafetida. Mix a large pinch of the powder or a small piece of the gum with two teaspoons of honey, a quarter teaspoon of white onion juice and one teaspoon of betel-leaf juice and take three times daily.
Smelling this gum can prevent hysterical attacks. An emulsion of two grams of asafetida in 120 ml of water can be given as an enema if oral administration is not advisable.
In cases of impotency, about six centigrams of the spice should be fried and mixed with honey and a teaspoon of fresh latex from a banyan tree. This mixture should be taken before sunrise, once daily for 40 days.
Grind a bit of the gum with a pestle in lemon juice and warm slightly. Soak a piece of clean cotton in this lotion and place in the cavity of the painful tooth for speedy relief.
