A viral message is doing rounds claiming that slip disc can be cured if we consume a decoction made of cloves, ginger, black pepper twice a day.
The viral photo claims that a decoction made of ginger powder, 4 cloves, and black pepper if consumed twice a day can cure the problem of slip disc.
The fact check revealed that the claim is false.
We contacted some renowned doctors to verify the claim and here are some of the responses:
Dr Malik, Ayurveda Specialist, Ayurveda Sanjeevani Herbal Clinic: “This is not a treatment for slip disc. This can be useful for cough and cold, but not slip disc. Sometimes people use certain herbs that can help in reducing pain to some extent but if we say that this decoction can actually cure slip disc, so this isn’t true.”
Dr. Sanjeev Kumar, C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S, General Physician (34 years of experience): “This claim is an absolutely foolish gimmick.”
The image was shared from the page ‘घरेलु नुस्के’. We observed the name of a website at the top of the image and its social media pages.
When we visited the website, there was a disclaimer that says, “This site is not intended to provide diagnosis, treatment or medical advice.

We also found the same post on the Facebook and Instagram page mentioned on the post.
Vishvas News tried to contact the doctor on the number given on the website of AllAyurvedic, but the doctor was not available to comment on the query.
The website itself is stating on its disclaimer that it is not intended to provide any diagnosis or treatment. Which means one cannot rely on or follow the treatment provided by the website.
We used StalkScan to check the previously shared posts from the page ‘घरेलु नुस्के’. There were many health-related posts shared by the page but their authenticity wasn’t determined.
We also searched the website of the page ‘घरेलु नुस्के’, the name of which was mentioned on the About page, which landed us to:
Also, there is no research that authenticates the claim.
