Someone recently asked me why I, conducting a project on #epidemics, write a paper on #mantras in #Ayurveda. Here is the reason: Early South Asian medical compilations discuss epidemics and how to treat them. They suggest various countermeasures …
Besides more "medical" remedies they suggest also truthfulness, compassion, #mantras, offerings, fasting, atonement, veneration of gods, certain rituals etc. – measures belonging to the class of remedies "depending on the supernatural" (daivavyapāśraya).
In Ayurveda, remedies are usually differentiated into those "depending on logical principles" (yuktivyapāśraya) and those "depending on the supernatural". The former help to balance the bodily humors, the latter shall primarily check all kinds of exogenous harm. Image

Vatsnabh (Vats- for child & Nabh for umbilicus- Roots looks like everted umbilicus) or Aconite is considered one of the the most poisonous plant in the world. It is native to North-East India and Nepal. It is very well spread over Sandakphu mountain in West Bengal. #Ayurveda 1/3
Sandakphu in Tibetean means height of poisonous plant from the fact that shepherds stopped taking their herds to this mountain because of poisoning. No plant grows in its vicinity and there are reports of poisoning in humans by accidental inhalation of its pollen while trekking.
Very evolved and experienced Aghoris smoke this with cannabis to reach an altered consciousness state. In Ayurveda the herb is first purified in cows urine and then used in different medicines to treat Fever, Pain and Arsenic poisoning.3/4

#Pseudowetenschap is een praktijk die zich als #wetenschap voordoet, maar die niet als zodanig door de wetenschappelijke gemeenschap wordt erkend en zelfs schadelijk kan zijn voor de #gezondheid. In deze series van🧵🧵🧵, van @dieren_doc + @marc_veld, zullen we uitleggen waarom.
#Pseudowetenschap is de benaming voor een stelsel van opvattingen, uitspraken of handelingen dat de toets van een wetenschappelijke methode niet doorstaat, maar waarvan aanhangers toch beweren of suggereren dat het om #wetenschap gaat.
#Pseudowetenschap wordt vaak gekenmerkt door tegenstrijdige, overdreven of niet-falsifieerbare claims. Er is een gebrek aan openheid voor evaluatie door andere deskundigen en een afwezigheid van systematische praktijken bij het ontwikkelen van hypothesen.

#Vitamin A, or retinol, is an essential fat-soluble vitamin that plays numerous roles in vision, cellular differentiation, gene expression, growth, the immune system, bone development, and reproduction.

Vitamin A is found primarily in animal products. Fruits and vegetables are a source of provitaminA carotenoids that can be converted to retinol in the body at a lesser amount. The RDA for #vitamin A for adults is 900mcg/day

Vijaya is one of the main herbs used for treatment in Ayurveda. In allopathy, ethanol acts as a base for medicines. Similarly, Vijaya helps as a base for Ayurveda. Atharva Veda holds the earliest mentioning of Vijaya dating about 1500 BCE.…
It states that Kusa grass, Barley, Bhaang, Saha, and Soma helps in releasing anxiety (Atharva Veda 11.6.15). Moreover, the Sushruta Samhita (600 BCE) prescribed the herb for phlegm, catarrh, and diarrhea.
Then, it was an Indian folk medicine in aphrodisiacs and the treatment of pain. Also, the fumes of burning Vijaya helped in treatments as an anesthetic in ancient times.

@rebelliousgut @MondayNightIBD @southasianIBD @ibdesis @Empoweringpts9 @DCharabaty @ownyourcrohns @LivingWithUmeed @vkckiranpullela @TheMaveilousGut @dunung_ruchita 2/ After speaking w/ a friend who knew someone w #Crohns, I decided to try #CAM. I didn't know what else to do. The promise of a "cure" & feeling defeated by the constant steroid cycle I was prescribed drove me to seek out another option. #MondayNightIBD #SouthAsianIBD
@rebelliousgut @MondayNightIBD @southasianIBD @ibdesis @Empoweringpts9 @DCharabaty @ownyourcrohns @LivingWithUmeed @vkckiranpullela @TheMaveilousGut @dunung_ruchita 3/ Family had planned an 🇮🇳 trip. The journey to an ayurvedic clinic took hrs & we waited ~6 hours only to spend 5-10 mins w/ the #ayurveda specialist. Nothing was asked about my history w/ #Crohns; I was sent away w/ tablets wrapped in newspaper. #MondayNightIBD #SouthAsianIBD

in remission, I got fed up & stopped medicines altogether. Instead I explored #ayurveda which
was relatively cheaper.

me believe that #ayurveda might work, while being easy on my pocket. Also had perianal
#fistula repaired through #KsharSutra. But didn't last long

@rebelliousgut @MondayNightIBD @southasianIBD @ibdesis @Empoweringpts9 @DCharabaty @ownyourcrohns @crohnsbabble @LivingWithUmeed @TheMaveilousGut @dunung_ruchita 3/ Stopping my medicines proved to be a very costly mistake. I had the biggest flare up of my life. I still struggle with the effects of that flare up even today.

I along with my family tested positive for covid, it didn’t took long for the @UPGovt to take the proactive measure. The officials called us several times, visited our place, tested us & gave us covid drug kit! This is such a great service to the public @myogiadityanath 🙏 (1/n) Image
This is really a great initiative and concern shown by the govt, never have I imagined before that I would see such a positive change in UP healthcare system. @myogiadityanath Ji you have done outstanding work as a leader of UP!
It may not look like a very big thing for people like me who could afford there tests & medications, but, this is really a boon for the section of the society who might not be able to afford the cost of test and medications! Take a bow @UPGovt @BJP4India 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

Jaggery (GuDa) - Health benefits - #Thread

The sugar crystals we eat or the brown sugar (jaggery or GuDa) is not so obviously in the sugar cane until we squeeze it out and process it.
The majority of people believe that drinking warm water with lemon juice and a tablespoon of honey on an empty stomach in the morning will help them lose weight and stay healthy (but don't combine #Honey with warm water).
We all know that drinking a cup of warm water first thing in the morning aids digestion. By combining jaggery and lemon juice, the profit can be tripled. Drinking warm water with jaggery in the morning before brushing your teeth will improve your skin and overall health.

“धर्मसम्राट् करपात्री जी महाराज का #कायाकल्प प्रयोग”

यौगिक क्रिया और रसायन के प्रयोग से शारीरिकशोधन पूर्वक देहस्थ तत्वों का परिष्कृत होकर देह में जो अद्भुत् क्रान्ति,स्फूर्ति,अजरता,दिव्यता तथा लुप्त वैदिक विद्याओं का स्मृति में स्फुरण हो जाता है,
२) आयुर्वेद के इस प्रयोग को 'कायाकल्प' प्रयोग कहते हैं। कल्प प्रयोग मे मुख्यतः दो कार्य किए जाते हैं कुटीरप्रवेश व औषधिपान।
कल्पकुटी यथेष्ट लम्बी,चौड़ी,ऊंची व त्रिगर्भा चाहिऐ।द्वार की दिशा पूर्व होनी चाहिऐ।और शुभ मुहूर्त व लग्न में देवपूजन व पंचकर्म कर कल्पकुटी प्रवेश करना चाहिऐ।
३) चरकसंहिता,रसेन्द्रचिन्तामणि,औषधिकल्पलता,रसरत्नसमुच्चय,राजमार्तण्ड,भावप्रकाश,अष्टाङ्गहृदय आदि आयुर्वेद के ग्रन्थों में कल्प का वर्णन मिलता है।
करपात्र महाभाग को एक महात्मा ने 'ज्योतिष्मतीकल्प' विधि की एक पाण्डुलिपि दिखलाई और कहा कि हिमालय के एक सिद्ध से यह मुझे प्राप्त हुई है।

Sugar- Friend or foe?
Present day nutrition "facts" are manipulated time & again based on what narratives the food industry wishes to set to introduce to the masses, new "fads".
#Ayurveda is time-tested, has already undergone timely updation wrt new foods, their properties etc. Image
So what are the properties of different derivatives of sugarcane?

Half-cooked molasses are hard to digest, make the tissues exude more, cause mild increase of doshas, cleanses the urine.

Purified "jaggery" causes mild increase of Kapha, stickiness & eliminate urine & feces. Image
Old (stored for long periods) jaggery is beneficial for heart health while fresh jaggery causes increase of kapha & weakness of digestion.
Summary is jaggery, in any form is heavy when it comes to digestion. Unpurified jaggery should be discarded at all times!

#StanSwamy, bail & the case:

* #StanSwamy was not in #NIA custody even for a day after his arrest in Oct last year

* All along, he was lodged in #Taloja jail which is under the #Maharashtra govt

* The Maharashtra jail didn't have allopathic doctors,had only 3 #ayurveda experts
* #StanSwamy was later diagnosed at JJ Hospital, which is also a #Maharashtra govt hospital

* JJ Hosp gave reports to #BombayHighCourt that Stan's vitals were manageable, not grave

* At one stage, Stan said he didn't want to get admitted in JJ Hosp since they couldn't help him
* Two days later, his lawyers said he was ready to get admitted & #BombayHC shifted #StanSwamy to pvt Holy Family Hospital on May 28

* #NIA opposed his regular bail plea in HC

* While Stan's bail plea remained pending, HC gave priority to his application on medical condition

Which Body Type are you?

Ayurveda is one of the fastest modes to good health as Ayurveda follows a simple path that is developed or is appropriate to your body type or dosha. Ayurveda follows the concept of understanding the doshas in order to heal oneself.
The three ayurvedic body types, or doshas, are Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. Each type of dosha has a unique set of characteristics and the body type of a person depends on their physical and emotional attributes.
To maintain good health and state of mind it is necessary to know your dosha, in order to practice a suitable diet, exercise, and lifestyle pattern.

A war cry on Twitter by Balkrishna – the main shareholder of #PatanjaliAyurved, was a signal for India’s globally-famous right-wing troll army to charge.

A scholar of Ayurveda in 600BC, identified 5 mosquito species as source of a "King of Diseases" causing chills & fevers.

For next 2500 yrs ur "Allopathy" & whole world thought, it causes due to Bad Air & named it MALARIA : Mal = Bad, Aria = Air.

This is the legacy of #Ayurveda
A British scientist named Joseph Constantine Carpue wrongfully accessed details of traditional Indian surgery (Ayurvedic) & Using these techniques, he performed world’s first “modern Rhinoplasty” 20 yrs later.

This is Your loved #Allopathy

This place is Krishna patnam in Nellore. An Ayurveda doctor is miraculously curing COVID. Even serious cases are cured in a day or two. He gives medicine free of cost. Govt has formed a committee to enquire. As of now no complaints against him. Today 60000 went for treatment
only 10000 got medicine. Lot of chaos & stampede has taken place. Ayurveda commissioner who visited today confirmed that all the natural ingredients used by him are permissible & safe. He is yet to experience Live the miracle & he is going to check that tomorrow. Today those
people who has taken medicine has confirmed to him there are no side effects. VP Sri Venkaiah Nadu instructed ICMR to visit the place & submit report. If this miracle turns out to be true then for entire Pharma Industry is like Govinda Govinda
