#Cow Urine, #science & #Ayurveda

"I drink cow urine daily for health purpose"
When @akshaykumar told this to @BearGrylls,
then the most expected reaction started taking place.

Some specific type of groups & people, who hv always been using the term Go-mutra/Cow urine to
offend #Indians,
started attacking & abusing not only #AkshayKumar but also his wife Twinkle @mrsfunnybones.

This #GANG always claim that use of Go-mutra/ Cow urine is #unscientific.
I hv always seen people (who support Go-mutra use) running away, in absence of knowledge.
I m going 2 share some #international #patent & #Researchpapers which support the #health benefits claims of #cow urine.

COW means DESI INDIAN COW & not the jersy cow.

I request @akshaykumar & @BearGrylls & other influencers plz to share it with the general mass to

According to Hindu scriptures,
Lord Shiva and Maa Shakti are pleased only by
NOT doing the complete circumambulation of Shiva Linga.
Very few people know the Medicinal application of this religious aspect.
I would try my best to explain this #Ayurveda concept in layman..
We apply such medicines,
made on the basis of this concept,
in some life threatening diseases like #DMD, #autoimmune diseases, #Cancer etc.

How r the medicines prepared?:

@HinduMediaWiki told 1 pradakshina for shiv & 1 for maa shakti,
some say 3/4 pradakshina..
for shiv & 1/4 pradakshina for maa shakti.
But one thing is acceptable to all
only incomplete circumambulation pleases Lord shiva & maa shakti.

Let's assume cancer.
Cancer means #DESTRUCTION of healthy cells in the body
Destruction is done by kruddh/angry Shiva.

#Thread on scientificity of Ayurveda and why calling #Ayurveda a pseudoscience itself is unscientific & baseless

First let us understand what the motto of science/medicine w.r.t mankind should be.

Cc @Wikipedia

The aim of science is to seek the simplest explanations of complex facts.
Going by the definitions of science coined by great modern scientists of our times, let's present the pointers on evidences in Ayurvedic texts that make it a far more superior science than the world knows.
Modern Biology recognizes the cell as the basic unit of life, genes as the unit of heredity & evolution as the engine that propels the production & making of new species.

Ayurvedic biology, on the other hand, explains in-depth how the extrinsic factors affect the internal makeup

Detailed #Thread on why eating local produce is a precursor to good health

Charak Samhita classifies geographical regions into three categories:-

These are based on the climatic conditions & characteristics of the region.
Jāṅgala desha has dry & arid land with thick evergreen forests. The climatic conditions are extreme so it is predominant with Agni mahabhoota. These conditions make the people living here strong & with sturdy bodies.They are prone to joint problms. N. India falls under this.
Ānupa desha has marshy & humid climate & is near the sea level with coconut trees, lakes & rivers. People residing here are mostly delicate and more prone to illnesses as a result of weak digestive strength. Goa, Konkan, Some parts of South India fall under this category.

Ever wondered why there are cases where apparantly young individuals are succumbing to COVID-19 whereas older people are recovering very well? Here we need to understand that immunity boosting and immune suppression is not actually recommended for any treatment. #Ayurveda (1/n)
The only thing that helps in disease reversal is optimum and accurate immune response.
No amount of immune boosting is going to protect you from diseases if the body does not have proper metabolism. Your body system is designed to overcome all the major diseases by itself. (2/n)
All we have to do is to provide a favourable environment to the body so that it can counter the pathogen.
How can you determine whether you have proper metabolism? Here we need to look into the definition of health given by #Ayurveda (3/n)

1-Today is the #Birth #Anniversary of quite possibly the most interesting #God in the #Sanatana #Pantheon - #Ganehsa!

For #AyurvedicAstrology and #VedicAstrology #Tradition in general – Ganesha is the central #God controlling all the #Planets.
2-The Puja timings at most places today in #India are between 11 and 1 during the day.

No tradition is as rich in #Mythical #Symbolism (that if properly meditated upon – can point to the reality) – as the Vedic Tradition.
3-According to the #Vedic Traditions of #Yoga, #Vastu, #Ayurveda and #Jyotish

..the following are the #Metaphors and #Allegories associated with #Ganesha

Good Morning!

Continuing our #Dialogue on #Gems and #GemTherapy, today we shall dwell on the next two #GemStones.

#YellowSapphire and #Diamond. (1/13)

2-Yellow Sapphire is D highest quality Gemstone used 4 #Jupiter.

Substitute Gemstones for Yellow Sapphire are Yellow Tourmaline, #Citrine, Yellow #Zircon and #Topaz.

In my view, I have seen that Yellow Sapphire is one of the most widely prescribed Gemstone. (2/13)

3-Being related to #Jupiter it is bound to activate within you – the #Energy of the #Universal #Guru.

Out of the four #Vedic #Purusharthas, of #Dharma, #Artha, #Kama and #Moksha, Yellow Sapphire well and truly stands for #Dharma.

The Logic behind Menstruation Restrictions

A lot of people have a taboo about #menstruation, lot consider it as the impure time frame for females. A time frame when females are barred to attend any religious ceremony.

But do we know the logic behind the restriction? Image
It is the natural phenomenon in a female that is essential for female longevity as it frees the body from unwanted energy gathered during the whole month and charges the body once again with #positivity.

#Ayurveda combines five elements in Vata, Pitta and Kapha dosha and
each body has a different combination of these that determines the personality traits. ’Apana Vayu’ is an outward energy flow, responsible for quality and quantity of the entire toxic outflow in the human body, including the monthly cleansing flow in females.

There is a new player in town for #coronavirus and #COVID19 treatment. Introducing #Zingivir @Pankajakasthuri made from some herbs and mercuric and arsenic sulfide to fight the #pandemic. Sounds too good. But there are issues.
They claim to have tested the product for safety in animal and cell lines. However, no data shown, only media mouthing. Half of the ingredients look like they make a good sambar chutney. But the drug manufacturer claim the following 👇#herbal #pseudoscience
