Science (Ayurveda) vs Pseudo-Science(Modern Pharma)


What is science?
Study of the physical and natural world using theoretical models and data from experiments or observations.
What is pseudo-science?
An activity resembling science but based on fallacious assumptions
Let me share two examples here. You decide, what is science and what is pseudo-science.
Example 1
In the 1950s two new drugs became available to treat common problems in pregnancy. One was thalidomide and the other was diethylstilbestrol, otherwise known as DES.

These were drugs that were considered safe for pregnant women and had actual or purported benefits.Between 1957 and 1961, thousands of women were prescribed thalidomide. In 1960 it could be purchased over the counter in Germany without a prescription.

At least ten thousand to twenty thousand babies were born with serious birth defects, mostly involving limb development, with shortened or missing arms and legs, as well as anomalies of the pelvis, eyes, and ears. Many defects were lethal.
A drug proven safe based on so called scientific studies failed miserably.

DES is similar story. Google and read about it.

Science or Pseudo-science?


Example 2


From time immemorial, Turmeric is prescribed by Ayurveda as life enriching drug. There is no side effect reported so far. When used as per prescriptions, it surely gives results.
There are at least 1000+ such prescriptions by Ayurvedic texts.
Science or pseudo-science?

Only educated arrogant will live in self-denial mode.

Art of scientific study is not in transforming natural phenomenons into complex formulas and patents but to simplify them to the level that it becomes common sense and anyone can use knowledge to live happy life.

Ayurveda passes this test. Modern medicine fails miserably.

About DES

“clear cell adenocarcinoma (cancer of the cervix and vagina), birth defects, and other developmental abnormalities in children born to women who took the drug while pregnant; increased risk of breast cancer, higher risk of death from breast cancer; risk of cancer in children of mothers taking the drug including raised risk of breast cancer after age 40; increased risk of fertility and pregnancy complications, early menopause, testicular abnormalities; potential risks for third generation children (the grandchildren of women who took the drug) but they are unclear as studies are just beginning

Studies in the 1950s showed the drug was not effective at preventing miscarriages, premature labor, or other pregnancy complications.”

Why home-based fermented food? Link to Acidity

In last post, I talked about importance of bacteria in controlling our mood/mental state.

This[1] interesting article supports the hypothesis I presented about eating ONLY home-made dahi/butter milk/yogurt (to avoid alien bacteria of alien environment i.e. shop/factory where dahi is prepared in mass). It also suggests another hypothesis of having Panchmrit prepared from all unrefined, unprocessed raw milk, jaggery, sugar and honey.

More processed food you eat, more alien food you eat (Food prepared in alien environment i.e. restaurants), frequent travelling you do (so eating outside food frequently) and more acidity you suffer from.

The researchers found that scavengers, or species that eat food at high risk of microbial contamination, have more acidic stomachs. This acidity allows the stomach to act as a filter, effectively controlling which microbes can pass through the stomach to the gut.

Passing stomach acidity is very essential for probiotic food. Most probiotic food available in market fail here. It only helps in increasing acidity of the stomach.

An analysis of data on stomach acidity and diet in birds and mammals suggests that high levels of stomach acidity developed not to help animals break down food, but to defend animals against food poisoning. The work raises interesting questions about the evolution of stomach acidity in humans, and how modern life may be affecting both our stomach acidity and the microbial communities that live in our guts.

Antacids is not a solution. It is actually counter-health solution. Right solution is to avoid eating at unknown food-joints, at unknown places. Avoid highly processed food full of chemicals.


1) If you start cooking for self, you will never need acidity regulators!acidity regulators are against the innate nature of stomach! Never take them! They worsen the stomach working.
2) Take good care of selecting and preparing probiotic food.
3) Avoid outside food and travelling as much as possible
4) Avoid non-veg diet if you are living in terrain where plant based diet is available.

Take care. Never seek easy short-sighted solutions.

The Evolutionary Link Between Diet and Stomach Acidity

Diet and Stomach Acidity
Diet and Stomach Acidity

Gastric acidity is likely a key factor shaping the diversity and composition of microbial communities found in the vertebrate gut. We conducted a systematic review to test the hypothesis that a key role of the vertebrate stomach is to maintain the gut microbial community by filtering out novel microbial taxa before they pass into the intestines. We propose that species feeding either on carrion or on organisms that are close phylogenetic relatives should require the most restrictive filter (measured as high stomach acidity) as protection from foreign microbes. Conversely, species feeding on a lower trophic level or on food that is distantly related to them (e.g. herbivores) should require the least restrictive filter, as the risk of pathogen exposure is lower. Comparisons of stomach acidity across trophic groups in mammal and bird taxa show that scavengers and carnivores have significantly higher stomach acidities compared to herbivores or carnivores feeding on phylogenetically distant prey such as insects or fish. In addition, we find when stomach acidity varies within species either naturally (with age) or in treatments such as bariatric surgery, the effects on gut bacterial pathogens and communities are in line with our hypothesis that the stomach acts as an ecological filter. Together these results highlight the importance of including measurements of gastric pH when investigating gut microbial dynamics within and across species

Gau Mutra And Free Radical Scavenging

Cow urine : Effective free radical scavenging
Cow urine : Effective free radical scavenging

It is your self-denial that stops you embracing ageless local culture back in life routine and get benefits of health society. Self denial mode is a biggest road block created by modern education. Unfortunately for so called educated, anything out of text book is humbug and fake. For them, real experience and experiments don’t matter but staged lab results like fake clinical trials.

Break your comfort zone of self-denial and dare to live life as per local culture.

Free radicals are everywhere, in the air, our bodies, and the materials around us. They cause the deterioration of plastics, the fading of paint, the degradation of works of art, aging related illnesses, and can contribute to heart attacks, stroke and cancers.

Free radicals are molecules with unpaired electrons. In their quest to find another electron, they are very reactive and cause damage to surrounding molecules.

It is one of the reasons why we see rapid aging & imbecility in our youth.

Free of cost solution?

Gau seva and Gau Prasad

When Gau is revered like a mata and taken care like your own mother, she takes care of you like a son and bestows magical boons.

Gau mutra act as an agent of radical scavenging which captures free radicals and satiates there energy needs. A vast amount of circumstantial evidence implicates free radicals as the mediators of wide range of diseases including diabetes, ageing, cancer, etc. Gau mutra can cure all of them magically.

If we want to stop Cow slaughter, best way is not the Milk production but by establishing usage of all her various prasads including Gau mutra in our society.

Cow urine as antioxidant
Cow urine as antioxidant
Cow urine Anti-oxidant


Medicinal use of cow urine has been in practice since time immemorial in India. It is one of the ingredients in “Panchgavya”. Several medicinal properties of cow urine have been mentioned and in Indian tradition it is believed to have therapeutic properties. In the present investigation antioxidant activity of cow urine (fresh) and its distillate was evaluated using two in vitro models i.e. Total antioxidant activity by ABTS method and DPPH radical scavenging activity. Both cow urine and its distillate exhibited the antioxidant activity. The IC50 value for ABTS radical scavenging activity of fresh urine was found to be 69.39 μl/ml and that of urine distillate was 86.91μl/ml. IC50 value for free radical scavenging activity of fresh urine and its distillate was found to be 5.25 μl/ml and 7.37 μl/ml respectively. Comparatively cow urine was found to be better antioxidant than its distillate. This supports the claim of traditional practitioners. The revealed antioxidant property of cow urine and its distillate may provide potential therapeutic intervention against oxidative threats, both in healthy and disease conditions.




Why mid-life obesity?


Online friend asked this query recently. Why fat increases after marriage?

Old note on same topic.

Obesity : Mid-life crisis img src: http://goo.gl/zEQAE0
Obesity : Mid-life crisis
img src: http://goo.gl/zEQAE0

1) Why do pregnant mothers increase fat in last trimester with the help of changing patterns of healthy bacteria in mother’s intestine ( ‪#‎marutMicrobes‬)?

2) Why OBESITY is prominent in our times?

“यन्मांसां स्वागि्ना पक्वं तन्मेद इति कथ्यते॥
तदतीव गुरु स्निग्धं बलकार्यतिबृंहणम्॥”

Meda or Fat is a perfectly ripe; mature flesh (मांस). (One of 7 dhatus). It is ripen by the Fire of the body. It is full of fire. It is in fact, fuel. Raw fuel. Besides satisfying energy needs of the body, it provides stability/firmness to body. Shock absorption.

In last trimester of pregnancy, baby has fragile bones and organs. It needs protection from unforeseen external accidents. During this time, brain is under development and demands super flow of energy.

Fat मेद gain by mother.


Rasa dhatu (Lymph) => Rakta dhatu (Blood) => Mamsa dhatu (Muscles) => Medha dhatu (Fat) => Asthi dhatu (Bone) => Majja dhatu (marrow (bone and spinal)) => Shukra dhatu (Semen)

Now when we see abnormal increase in Fat, it is Vata disorder. There is a temporary PAUSE at conversion from Meda (FAT) to Asthi(Bones).

Result => Excessive FAT.

Mother Nature is very kind. If you are suffering from Vata disorder, your probably have fragile bones. So to protect your bones, she increases FAT.


Correct Vata disorder and weight due to FAT will reduce.

Side note: Generally, when a young boy gets married, he starts developing FAT.

Do you know reason? Because wife cooks well? 😀 No. Wife cannot cook as good as mother 😉. It is because, he is now regularly indulged in sex. Excessive sex deranges Vata => FAT

What happened due to abnormally early FAT ?

FAT => Compromised bones, compromised marrow, compromized shukra. Obesity impairs reproductive outcome significantly.

Any doubt why obese suffer from infertility?

Some supporting research papers for obesity and reproduction links.

Obesity and infertility.

Fertility can be negatively affected by obesity. In women, early onset of obesity favours the development of menses irregularities, chronic oligo-anovulation and infertility in the adult age. Obesity in women can also increase risk of miscarriages and impair the outcomes of assisted reproductive technologies and pregnancy, when the body mass index exceeds 30 kg/m. The main factors implicated in the association may be insulin excess and insulin resistance. These adverse effects of obesity are specifically evident in polycystic ovary syndrome. In men, obesity is associated with low testosterone levels. In massively obese individuals, reduced spermatogenesis associated with severe hypotestosteronemia may favour infertility. Moreover, the frequency of erectile dysfunction increases with increasing body mass index.


The adverse effects of obesity on conception and implantation

  1. Christopher J Brewer and
  2. Adam H Balen

Whilst many multiparous women are obese (body mass index >30 kg/m2), obesity has been associated with impaired fecundity; however, the mechanism which links obesity to reduced fertility remains to be fully elucidated. Obese women, particularly those with central obesity, are less likely to conceive per cycle. Obese women suffer perturbations to the hypothalamic–pituitary–ovarian axis, menstrual cycle disturbance and are up to three times more likely to suffer oligo-/anovulation. A fine hormonal balance regulates follicular development and oocyte maturation, and it has been observed that obesity can alter the hormonal milieu. Leptin, a hormone produced by adipocytes, is elevated in obese women, and raised leptin has been associated with impaired fecundity. Obesity impairs ovulation but has also been observed to detrimentally affect endometrial development and implantation. The expression of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is regulated, in part, by weight, and so obese women with PCOS often have a more severe phenotype and experience more subfertility. Obesity also impairs the response of women to assisted conception treatments. Weight loss through lifestyle modification or bariatric surgery has been demonstrated to restore menstrual cyclicity and ovulation and improve the likelihood of conception. In this article, we will discuss the effect of obesity upon key reproductive mechanisms and its relation to fertility treatments.


What is solution for mid-life early Vata disorder?

There are many solutions. Some of them are listed here:

1) Surya Namaskar every morning.
2) Worship Hanuman ji
3) Abhyang – Tel malish daily before taking bath (45 mins before) – Sesame oil AND Head malish after taking last meal of the day, before sleeping.
4) Fasting on Saturday
5) Turmeric and Ginger – include as medicine. Esp. during monsoon.

Gau mutra (cow urine) patents

Urine Patents
Urine Patents

5 patents for cow urine. But colonial mindset of Indian physicians won’t allow to use this harmless medicine. Govt policies will never re-educate farmers to save Gau and seek her blessings for farming. It is now job of awakened citizens to reach out to farmer community, educate them and support them!

This is just a urine. All her blessings are super boons for society (Gobar, milk, ghee, dahi, butter milk)

Disappointed to see new govt’s dismal attention for such a critical issue i.e. conservation of Bos Indicus i.e. Indian Cow breeds i.e. Gau mata.

Here is the lab analysis of Gau mutra collected as per standard procedure (i.e. Desi pure breed, stress free living, enough grazing, good sleep)

Some papers :

Gau Mutra Nutrients
Gau Mutra Nutrients

1 ) Effect of treatment of cow’s urine “Gomutra” and antioxidants in alleviating the lindane-induced oxidative stress in kidney of Swiss mice (Mus musculus).

2) Analysis on the Natural Remedies to Cure Dandruff/Skin Disease-causing Fungus – Malassezia furfur



Gau urine (GU) is live medicine unlike dead and dumb antibiotics. GU helps human-friendly bacteria to colonize and kills/controls pathogens.

This is only possible when Gau is of pure desi breed and is kept in healthy conditions.

It has multiple usages. At home, we use it as handwash, floor cleaner, medicine. Fresh urine as medicine, rest for other purposes.

When organic farming includes Gau in the formula, there is no worry for toxicity or E-coli outbreak as it happens in European organic produce and as stated by researchers recently.

This is just about Gau mutra. Gobar too is wonder prasad by mother.

Ayurveda And Green Vegetables




शाकेषु सर्वेषु वसन्ति रोगास्ते हेतवो देहविनाशनाय
तस्माद् बुधः शाकविवर्जनं तु कुर्यात्तथाऽम्लेषु स एव दोषः | – भाव प्रकाशः

As per Ayurveda, in tropical weather like most part of India has, eating leafy vegetables in daily meal is not preferable.


1) Vegetables demand high अग्निबल (जठरअग्नि & धातुअग्नि).क्षय of digestive fire.
2) It disturbs प्राणमय कोष and accelerates अपान वायु movements.
3) Derangement of Vayu means early aging. Weak bones, weak eyes and grey hairs.

Those who are prescribing more and more leafy vegetables have somehow their base in western science originated in cold regions of the Earth. For them, अपान acceleration and high अग्निबल (जठरअग्नि & धातुअग्नि) is required for proper digestion and stool passing.

In Bharat, if you do not have luxury to eat vegetables, it is perfectly fine! Our main food is: दाल, रोटी, पराठा, चावल, peas, beans, lentils.

And if you really want to eat vegetables, follow following suggestions:

1) Use fresh vegetables. Fresh = प्राणवान so प्राण supplement for digestion process
2) Use only ripen vegetables. Not so old and not so infant.
3) Wash vegetables 2-3 times. Use salted water to clean.
4) Do not refrigerate vegetables. Use fresh. Zero tolerance.
5) Cut vegetables only during cooking. Do not use pre-cut vegetables.Do not keep cut vegetables for more than 1 hr.
6) Do not over-fry, over-cook. Half-baked is fine.
7) Always use multiple vegetables together to balance eachother’s dosha
8) In different regions, there is tradition to add सेव,कोफ्ता. It is good.
9) User all kitchen masala as per need in cooking.
10) Boiled is better than fried. Even soup or juice is better.
