CORIANDER seeds are a good household remedy for many Pitta disorders, particularly those of the digestive tract or urinary system. It is an effective digestive agent for Pitta conditions in which most spices are contraindicated or used with caution. The fresh juice of the herb is effective internally for allergies, hay fever and skin rashes; one teaspoon three times a day, but it can also be used externally for itch and inflammation.

Similar in properties is cumin, which is an antidote for hot, pungent food (tomatoes, chilis, etc.). It increases digestion and absorption, and is good for diarrhea and dysentery. Coriander, cumin and fennel seeds are related plants with similar properties. The three are often used together for digestive disorders, mainly owing to high Pitta, and are used together in various formulations to promote the asimilation of the other herbs.
