Plz see this video:

The process
in which a herbal liquid is poured into the "Drug under preparation"
& is TRITURATED till the liquid dries up(it takes 8-12 hrs), is called
1⃣ #Bhavna/#भावना

It takes around 3 DAYS for 1⃣ Bhavna & other related procedures like Puta (will define it later) to be
completed

Around 5-500 BHAVNAs
or
15-1500 DAYS

r required for complete preparation of different Ras/Ayurvedic Medicine

Now let's see what most of the pharma companies (not all) do & how it affects the efficacy & final clinical results of the Ayurveda medicines:

The issue with #ayurveda practitioners is that they consider everything #scientific - an attack
An attack on tradition, an attack on culture, an attack on the nation, when, #ayurvedic practice itself, is an attack on #science and #publichealth.
There is a #sanskrit phrase...

...for this, "Kupa manduka" [frog in the Well] - that imagines the Well, to be the whole world and, therefore, becomes pompous. "It is a term of derision for intellectually complacent, 4 some1 who thinks he knows everything ther is 2 know".
This destroys scientific temper!

@jobanmodhaa is prototype 'Frog' in "Ayurvedic Well" and any attempt at saving him frm the Well, wud B considered an 'attack' on his home. Nw, him being a teacher, wil impart this insecurity 2 his students of #Ayurveda & V will be left with nothing, but a well full of frogs.

A real story of #modern medicine & #Ayush

Sad wen the former messes things up

24 yr male - overweight by 11kg. Routine check up - fatty liver/advised by GP 2 stop eating - yes he said stop eating, eat when hungry or he'll develop cirrhosis +

So the guy gets food phobia - loses 2 much weight in 2 months - close to 12 kg - rechecks liver test - AST and ALT enzymes are higher than before - fellow is sure its 2 late and he is going to develop cirrhosis - so he goes 2 a Gastroenterologist at a suburban clinic +
#ethics
3/
Gastro doc does his ultrasound liver - sees grade 3 fatty liver frm prev Grade 1 - says its bad (on radiological assessment). Liver tests show AST 200 ALT 102. Patient repeatedly asks if he had developed cirrhosis
No answer (a silent doctor is either a fool or thinking one) +

Middle aged man with BCLC-B liver #cancer (survival >30 mo) was advised a chemoembolization procedure Image
2/
Chemoembolization or TACE is relatively safe and adverse event free option in selected patients
It also improves survival
But
This patient luked 4 othr options. He was scared of TACE. Physician failed to gain his confidence bcoz he was busy moving 2 seeing many othr patients

Physician gave the patient an appointment 4 procedure and left it at that. The patient, relatively stable man, went around asking for other options. Landed in arms of a traditional #ayurvedic healer, who advised him a cocktail of herbs and cow urine which he tuk for 3-4 mo Image

Madhumardan contains 32 herbs.
Yes. 32 herbs. It's just crazy. 32 herbs. I can't get over this. Website mentions no side effects. Human #health has no value in #AYURVEDA. This is the truth about the #science of #life which is actually science of #business. Harmful BS.
3/
Pranada is a proprietary medicine. Look at indications for use. Dropsy, hydropsy and cirrhosis. What are these diseases which are totally different from each other, treated with same drug. Vague idiots. AGAIN, #PSEUDOSCIENCE OF BUSINESS. No regard 4 human health. Stupids.

1/A horrific patient scene today. A #kidney #transplant patient doing well since 2015. Had fall and fracture of foot. Underwent surgery,improving. Asked for physio sessions to continue at home. Asks around,finds #ayurvedic traditional healer. He does external works.
2/ patient feels better. #Ayurveda healer gets his trust. Says post transplant infections and diabetes worsen (patient was already diabetic kidney disease for which transplant was done). Says #natural is safest way. Patient falls for healers confidence. Starts #herbal drugs.
3/ Drugs and potions prepared at home from locally sourced plants. Small fee Healer also advise nutritional changes. More like starvation. No proteins. Remember patient is post kidney transplant. #weightloss in 1 mo. Loss of appetite in 2 months. Then came something unexpected.

On 18.12.2020, computer engineer @FitTuber shared @YouTube video titled "10 Safe & Useful Ayurvedic Tablets to Replace Allopathic Pills (Instant Relief)". The drugs he promoted were by @baidyanathgroup, not sure if it was paid promotion. I bought them:
10 drugs, details, batch numbers R given in pic👇. All by @baidyanathgroup exept 1 by unjhaayurvedicpharmacy.com
We did GCMSMS, ICP-OES and FTIR analyses on these samples. Here are my 10 safer modern medicine alternatives 2 @FitTuber's untested, potentially harmful #Ayurvedic drugs
Kanthsudharak Vati by Unjha Pharma
@FitTuber: 4 sorethroat, cold, cough
Analysis: Lead 0.54 mg/kg, Cadmium 0.4 mg/kg, Thallium 0.71 mg/kg and industrial phenols.
Low values, but not ideal.

Safe alternative: Levocetrizine & non-sedative cough syrup Levodropropizine

I followed @FitTuber advise and got all these #Ayurveda medicines which he outright claimed are '#safer', ''#effective' than conventional prescription drugs for day to day use. These will be tested for #safety first - will undergo GCMSMS, ICP-OES and FTIR analyses.

I looked at packaging and found interesting (poor regulation, absurdity), #quackery, #pseudoscience based descriptions like this:
Malaria - caused by parasite
Dengue - caused by virus
Typhoid - caused by bacteria.
One tablet to rule them all. Reminds me of lord of the rings.

This particular #ayurvedic tablet is good for indigestion, hyperacidity and THEN - like a @starwars hyperspace jump 🤯SCABIES🤯. How? Why? What is the mode of action within this very broad range of 'symptoms to disease'. You know this medicine is #fraud.
Also check out 'etc'🙅‍♂️

Hey @FitTuber. U R advising #quackery to your poor little followers.
While selecting these pills, UR main criteria was how common the issue is faced in day to day life, how straightforward it’s #Ayurvedic solution is & safety medicine for all body types.
Let me correct U
1/
Criteria for selecting a drug for use in a medical condition is basically two things only
➡️efficacy or ability to produce a desired or intended result
➡️safety. Let me explain this term 4 U: "the condition of being protected from or unlikely to cause danger, risk, or injury" 2/
U hav extensively studied all scriptures, spoken 2 #Ayurveda experts (creamy-layer of #pseudoscience), modern docs! (plz name them in description, becoz they hav failed themselves, U, the community as whole - or did U just use that term to show credibility to UR stupid post?) 3/

He started writing on using sophistications 2 integrate ayurveda into mainstream, 4 betr acceptance. However, his interviews, thoughts on medicine are all twisted by #pseudoscience #quacks to show case 'modern' acceptance of #Ayurvedic thinking. It's basically a backfire.

An interview, published in #pseudoscience journal shows passion 4 the unknown, bereft of scientific thinking.

Translated Ayurveda 'trinity', promotes (unknowingly demeans #science) integrative medicine on media. Not sure if tis improved clinical temper.

Such integration, false promotion of hope 4 #pseudoscience has led 2 #Ayurveda using new methods on #quackery thoughts. Eg this paper @SciReports. nature.com/articles/srep1…

32 yr male. Routine check in 2017, found 2 have hepatitis C virus (HCV) +ve. That is, anti-HCV +ve meaning exposure to the virus & antibodies in blood.
#MedTwitter #livertwitter
2/
To confirm, PCR test 4 RNA has to be done. Which he did. The viral load was 900,000 IU/L. So he goes to a Gastroenterologist, who checks the virus genotype (it was type 2) and puts him on the fantastic direct acting antiviral Sofosbuvir+velpatasvir for 3 months. All good?
No.
3/n
He checks Google. Finds cirrhosis, liver cancer etc...gets alarmed and before completing the treatment, checks HCV at 2 months. Finds - anti HCV still +ve.
[note: anti HCV ELISA test STILL +ve]
Feels modern medicine doctor cheated him with expensive drugs.
Enter the dragon.

Everyone in #India know #Homeopathy and #ayurvedic interventions for #COVID19, #Corona is government's biggest #fraud and #quackery on people. Confused #media will playback whats been told. It's a #Cancer eating the community, sponsored by the some local governments. Real BS.
Don't expect the #government to do its people any good in these times. Either they favor big #pharma to rush untested molecules forcash in, or peddle nonsense #pseudoscience. Either way the people lose and it is upto compassionate #publichealth well wishers to educate otherwise.
See what happened with #coronil #itolizumab and #Tocilizumab and all the other stuff being broadcasted without any proper evidence. For some, the pandemic is a way to get their pockets big. This includes educated well trained doctors like @zev_dr and quacks like @drbrcofficial

1-Hi!

Good Morning!

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

#YellowSapphire and #Diamond. (1/13)

#Upayas
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)

#Remedies
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.
