Cow pee is helpful in curing cancer.
Taking cancer by the horns
Cow Urine for Cancer,Oral Cancer Medicines,Throat Cancer Medicines,Cow Urine for Oral Cancer,Throat Cancer Medicines India
Nothing in these obscure articles indicate any positive correlation between cow urine and anti cancer processes. India unfortunately has a long and stellar history in pseudo science and a rather disappointing one in real evidence based science.
I would want to see more detailed data in top tier peer reviewed journals prior to downing any cow urine.
Pseudo scientific nonsense. On par with homeopathy.
Traditional medicine like Ayurveda have certain beneficial properties, but this is pure garbage
Many people swear by homeopathy
Pseudo science. Worse than cow pee
It is all about developing a positive attitude!
Morarji Desai drank his own and he had flawless skin texture and excellent health and he died real old!
He would have endorsed that it is better than anything that Aishwarya Rai may recommend!
We Indians first reject our own customs without thinking about it's scientific values then we cry that west is utilizing our inventions and discoveries without giving us credit. Btw science itself is pseudo-science.
cow pee has lot of medicinal properties. even ur own pee has antiseptic properties. and according to bear grills (dicovery wala) its better to drink ur own pee than drinking dirty,stand water.

Generally the basic concepts of the Siddha medicine are almost similar to ayurveda. The only difference appears to be that the siddha medicine recognizes predominance of vata, pitta and kapha in childhood, adulthood and old age, respectively, whereas in ayurveda, it is totally reversed: kapam is dominant in childhood, vata in old age and pitham in adults.
According to the Siddha medicine, various psychological and physiological functions of the body are attributed to the combination of seven elements: first is saram (plasma) responsible for growth, development and nourishment; second is cheneer (blood) responsible for nourishing muscles, imparting colour and improving intellect; the third is ooun (muscle) responsible for shape of the body; fourth is kollzuppu (fatty tissue) responsible for oil balance and lubricating joints; fifth is elumbu (bone) responsible for body structure and posture and movement; sixth is moolai (brain) responsible for strength; and the last is sukila (semen) responsible for reproduction. Like in Ayurveda, in Siddha medicine also, the physiological components of the human beings are classified as vata (air), pitta (fire) and kapha (earth and water).
Concept of disease and cause
It is assumed that when the normal equilibrium of the three humors (vata, pitha and kapha) is disturbed, disease is caused. The factors, which assumed to affect this equilibrium are environment, climatic conditions, diet, physical activities, and stress. Under normal conditions, the ratio between these three humors (vata, pitha and kapha)ieVadham, Pittham,Kabam in Tamil) is 4:2:1, respectively.
According to the siddha medicine system, diet and lifestyle play a major role, not only in health but also in curing diseases. This concept of the siddha medicine is termed as pathyam and apathya, which is essentially a list of "do's and dont's".
In diagnosis, examination of eight items is required which is commonly known as "enn vakaith thervu". These are:
Na (tongue): black in vatha, yellow or red in pitha, white in kapha, ulcerated in anaemia.
Varna (colour): dark in vatha, yellow or red in pitha, pale in kapha.
Svara (voice): normal in vatha, high-pitched in pitha, low-pitched in kapha, slurred in alcoholism.
Kan (eyes): muddy conjunctiva, yellowish or red in pitha, pale in kapha.
Sparisam (touch): dry in vatha, warm in pitha, chill in kapha, sweating in different parts of the body.
Mala (stool): black stools indicate vatha, yellow pitha, pale in kapha, dark red in ulcer and shiny in terminal illness.
Neer (urine): early morning urine is examined; straw colour indicates indigestion, reddish-yellow colour in excessive heat, rose in blood pressure, saffron colour in jaundice, and looks like meat washed water in renal disease.
Nadi (pulse): the confirmatory method recorded on the radial art.
The drugs used by the Siddhars could be classified into three groups: thavara (herbal product), Dhathu (inorganic substances) and jangamam (animal products). The Dhathu drugs are further classified as: uppu (water-soluble inorganic substances or drugs that give out vapour when put into fire), pashanam (drugs not dissolved in water but emit vapour when fired), uparasam (similar to pashanam but differ in action), loham (not dissolved in water but melt when fired), rasam (drugs which are soft), and ghandhagam (drugs which are insoluble in water, like sulphur).
The drugs used in siddha medicine were classified on the basis of five properties: suvai (taste), guna (character), veerya (potency), pirivu (class) and mahimai (action).
According to their mode of application, the siddha medicines could be categorized into two classes:
Internal medicine was used through the oral route and further classified into 32 categories based on their form, methods of preparation, shelf-life, etc.
External medicine includes certain forms of drugs and also certain applications (such as nasal, eye and ear drops), and also certain procedures (such as leech application). It also classified into 32 categories.
The treatment in siddha medicine is aimed at keeping the three humors in equilibrium and maintenance of seven elements. So proper diet, medicine and a disciplined regimen of life are advised for a healthy living and to restore equilibrium of humors in diseased condition. Saint Thiruvalluvar explains four requisites of successful treatment. These are the patient, the attendant, physician and medicine. When the physician is well-qualified and the other agents possess the necessary qualities, even severe diseases can be cured easily, according to these concepts.
The treatment should be commenced as early as possible after assessing the course and cause of the disease. Treatment is classified into three categories: devamaruthuvum (Divine method); manuda maruthuvum (rational method); and asura maruthuvum (surgical method). In Divine method, medicines like parpam, chendooram, guru, kuligai made of mercury, sulfur and pashanams are used. In the rational method, medicines made of herbs like churanam, kudineer, or vadagam are used. In surgical method, incision, excision, heat application, blood letting, or leech application are used.
According to therapies the treatments of siddha medicines could be further categorized into following categories such as purgative therapy, emetic therapy, fasting therapy, steam therapy, oleation therapy, physical therapy, solar therapy, blood-letting therapy, yoga therapy, etc.
Varmam are vital points in the body that act as energy transformers or batteries. They form centres for boosting the vital prana flow through the intricate nadi system of the body. Nature, by its design, has protected these vital centres by placing them deep inside the body or by covering them with tissues inaccessible to normal attempts of breach.
Varmam is a holistic therapy on its own and tackles the body, mind and spirit. A varmam expert understands the underlying links between the body, prana and the mind. If one looks at the long list of things which varmam can do, one will be totally mesmerised by the deep science and the indisputable healing it brings about. The human body can get into lot of accidents, minor and major, in its lifetime. Very rarely people are lucky enough to escape accidents in life.
Varmams have been classified based on the type of pressure needed to injure: (a) Paduvarmam (varmam due to injury), (b) Thodu varmam (by touch); Thattu varmam (by blows); (c) Thaduvu varmam (by massage); (d) Nakku varmam (by licking); and (e) Nokku (by staring). The widely used and recognised ones are the 12 Paduvarmams and 96 Thoduvarmams; there is less consistency with the other categories simply because of the way of application or the deeper knowledge needed to apply them. In these categories, the Nokku varmam is the most awe-generating and is rarely seen practiced, as those masters who were able to do this are almost extinct.
A varmam therapist needs to have a deep knowledge about the body's nerves and physical structure to do an effective treatment. There are only a few therapists existing in this world, and the modern siddha world is trying to preserve this art of healing.
Siddha medicine - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Many people die from it.
To each his own . . . .Numerous People have reported benefiting from Homeopathy
Just as many die from western medicine . . . Need i give citations ?
That's the thing, homeopathy relies upon people's faith; allopathic medicine is primarily evidence based.
Many people also report benefiting from placebos administered in a clinical setting.
Numerous people have also been administered allopathic medicines that have later been discovered
to lead to Heart attacks and Early deaths , or turn one suicidal .
Atleast with Homeopathy you know , you are not going to turn into a teapot .
Homepathy works because of 'placebo effect' . Many people just get better because they just believe the medicine will work.
This reasoning is inherently flawed and unfortunately extremely popular in India. Side effects of drugs with real therapeutic value are unavoidable; what does matter however is risk/benefit ratio.
Why do people in countries which have adopted allopathic medicine as their primary source of healthcare live longer and have higher survivability from serious ailments?
Antibiotics can give you serious stomach ailments and also produce dangerous bacteria which develop resistance, yet no other drug has saved more human lives in the history of mankind. Are you willing to withhold antibiotics from extremely sick loved ones in case of dangerous infections? I highly doubt it, because they would surely die.
Evidence based medicine certainly has it's share of drawbacks, but the overall success rate speaks for itself. Celebrex, the drug found to increase the possibility of heart attacks (in people who already have serious heart conditions) has allowed an insurmountable number of people to control pain from joint diseases (mostly due to old age) and enabled them to enjoy a high quality of life by remaining active. In India scores of old people are bed ridden due to the same ailments for which homeopathy and ayurveda provide no cure.
This notion of listing select side effects in order to dismiss an entire school of medicine that is by far the most effective is not only silly but also extremely dangerous.
Did you know Steve Job's life could have been saved had he not wasted precious time seeking homeopathic cures? He tried to find the "perfect" natural cure only to find that it was utterly ineffective. And by the time he came to his senses and started seeking the standard therapy of surgery, radiation and chemotherapy (all have horrible side effects) it was too late.
I'm sure there are some things in the realm of alternative medicine that do have therapeutic value, however only true scientific investigation and practices of evidence based medicine can help us evaluate what works and what doesn't.
In the mean time if it comes down to little glucose pills and antibiotics in the event of a fatal fever, I suggest you go for the latter.
