T1: Thread on data analysis & representation emerging from cognitive bias associated with research studies involving serious malpractice in #altmed #naturopathy #ayurveda #AYUSH research, i.e. no placebo controlled, no blinding, incorrect statistics, no error bars on mean data.
T2: From the recent article published at @AltNews Science on dengue and papaya extract pill called Caripill altnews.in/is-caripill-th… we evaluated the two clinical trial studies in India given by pubmed
T3: The first study had serious misrepresentation of data : while there is no way to find out the raw data & conduct statistical analysis, I replotted the figure using Mean +_ standard error of mean given in the results section. ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/27739…

A classic case how #Ayurveda is being defamed deliberately and how rumours are spread intentionally.
@DrShrinidh @ViIlageldiot
@DrSamarthk

How an Ayurvedic tonic caused severe liver disease in a farmer who never drank alcohol.
scroll.in/pulse/886955/h… via @scroll_in
First of all; Dashamoolaristam (the accused medicine in the write-up) isn't used as 'digestive' in #Ayurveda It is primely used in Vata diseases. It contains self generated alcohol which is different than the distilled one.
Here mentioned farmer is said to be taking 4-5 ounces (approx 148 ml) four times a day which makes it around 592 ml a day!

Theraputic dose of the same is 10-20 ml twice a day.

So in this case; it was consumed in around 15 times more quantity than the expected!

You must have heard the word "quantum mechanics" before, and most of you may have probably heard the phrase in the popular @CBS show @bigbangtheory.

What does it mean?

Quantum Physics describes nature at the smallest scales of energy levels of atoms and subatomic particles.
In simple words, as opposed to 'Classical Physics', the Quantum Theory suggests that everything in the universe has both particle and wave nature, at the same time.

Confused?

Simply put, matter consists of "invisible energy fields" that can pass through solid things, at random!

#Thread : #diabetes & rice

Study conducted by the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) and the University of Queensland says, #Diabetic patients may consume Indian varieties of rice like Swarna, Mahsuri as they have low GI.

Rice variety like brown rice could be consumed by #Diabetic patients as well. This is customary in many parts of southern India.

#DiabetesMonth
#SwasthaBharat
Traditionally Indians consume aged rice; which has low GI as compared to the new one. If you consuming new rice grain; just roast it a bit before cooking. It makes it easy to digest says #Ayurveda. The process also helps reducing the GI.

@GauPrem @SatyaVijayi @mandarjoshisays @TejasOmkara @authorAneesh
First pic mentions about the preparation specifically used to TREAT VishamaJvara; not any random type of fever. Medicine & diet difference??
The second image shared by you clearly says 'न शीलयेत्।' which means DON'T CONSUME beef. So you actually proved my point sharing it!!

Heart is considered to be one of the most important vital organs in human body by #Ayurveda. It is called as 'Marma’ (vital point)
Susruta mentions shape of heart (along with the aorta) is just like a lotus bud. Was that precision possible without dissecting cadaver?
