   Introduction Top


In cow blood, there is pran shakti (Life Force). Cow urine is cow's blood that is filtered by kidney. Kidneys filter blood. Whatever elements are present in blood are present in cow urine also. Cow, as Kamdhenu is the provider of all happiness 'Matrah Sarva Bhutanam, Gavah Sarv Sukh Prada' . Meaning 'Cow being mother of all living entities gives all pleasures to everyone'. [1]

Cow is a mobile dispensary. It is the treasure of medicines. The cow urine therapy is capable of curing several curable and incurable diseases. The holy texts, such as Atharva Veda, Charak Samhita, Rajni Ghuntu, Vridhabhagabhatt, Amritasagar, Bhavprakash and Sushrut Samhita, contain beautiful description about these things. Cow Urine Treatment and Research Center has conducted a lot of research in the past few years and reached at the conclusion that it is capable of curing diabetes, blood pressure, asthma, psoriasis, eczema, heart attack, blockage in arteries, fits, cancer , AIDS, piles, prostrate, arthritis, migraine, thyroid, ulcer, acidity, constipation, gynecological problems, ear and nose problems, abortion and several other diseases.

The analysis of cow urine has shown that it contains nitrogen, sulphur, phosphate, sodium, manganese, carbolic acid, iron, silicon, chlorine, magnesium, maleic, citric, tartaric, succinic acids and calcium salts, vitamin A, B, C, D, E, minerals, lactose, enzymes, creatinine, hormones and gold acids. A person falls ill when there is deficiency or excess of the substances inside the body. The cow urine contains those substances, which are present in the human body. Therefore, consumption of cow urine maintains the balance of these substances and cures incurable diseases [Table 1]. [1]

Persons suffering from cancer had been told that they would not survive for long; cow therapy was done on such cases. Out of the many patients, who were suffering with cancer for the last 4 years are now leading a healthy life. In the same way, the diabetes patient who was taking insulin and having a sugar level of 488 or 420 mg/ dl did not have the necessity to take insulin after this treatment. In the same way AIDS, asthma, psoriasis, eczema, blood pressure, heart disease, prostrate, piles were also cured with this treatment. Subject 1 was suffering from asthma and eosinophilia. He had palpitations and cough along with phlegm. He is now enjoying a healthy life after taking cow urine therapy. The cough and phlegm reduced. Subject 2 was having varicose veins and dismenorrhoea. She used to have swollen nerves, pain and swelling as soon as she used to stand up and it was very painful at the time of menses. She was advised operation for both the problems. However, she went for cow urine therapy and is now healthy. Subject 3 suffered a heart attack; he had high levels of cholesterol and chest pain. After taking cow urine therapy, he is able to walk up to 4 km, he does not get chest pain and cholesterol level is also normal. Subject 4 suffered from cancer of the food pipe 4 years back; he could not take liquids also. Now he is able to eat and drink properly, he is healthy and working in the fields. There are thousands of people who have recovered from serious diseases after taking this therapy. [3]

Today, many AIDS patients are taking cow urine therapy. People who were suffering with migraine and headache for the past 15 years have recovered within 6 months of taking this therapy. It is an important measure of relieving tension or improving the memory power. In the past few years the Cow Urine Treatment and Research Center has treated 150,000 of people. Out of the total patients, 85- 90% were patients of constipation; there is an old saying that if the stomach is clean half of the diseases get cured automatically. The patient taking cow urine therapy says that he is enjoying sound heath and passing bowels easily within 1 month of this therapy. [5]

In Charaka-Samhita, Sushruta Samhita and Vangbhatt, we can find there are eight types of animal urines that can be used in medicine. These can be divided in two groups:

Male : Elephant, camel, horse

Female : Cow, goat, sheep, buffalo

However, according to Sushruta Samhita and Ayurveda Samgraha for medicinal and other purposes cow urine is beneficial and better than all other animals. Cow, Bos indicus, is most valuable animal in all Veda and it is called as the 'Mother of all'. The use of gomutra (cow urine) in India can be traced back to the Vedic times and probably it was used in the prevedic period also. In Vedas and Dharmashastras, it has been well documented as a purifying substance and as an ingredient of the Panchayagavya (Milk, Urine, Dung, Ghee and Curd of Cow). Essentially, gomutra is a Kshara dravya and finds place in chemical preparation and also as a substance for purification. In India, gomutra is used by the majority of rural population as folklore remedy in almost all the states. As per Ayurvedic literature, gomutra has katu, tikta, kashaya rasa, ushna-veerya (potency) kshra, laghu and deepana prabhav. It is useful in number of diseases particularly in gulma and kusta, ascites, elephenthsis, aburda (cancer), etc.

Traditional Uses of Gomutra

Cow urine have been used for lot of diseases [Table 2], some of the uses are:

Uses of cow urine in purification and detoxification process

  1. Purification of guggal
  2. Detoxification of aconite
  3. Detoxification of dhatura
  4. Detoxification and purification of silver
  5. Purification of loha and bhallataka
The composition containing cow's excretions urine, dung, cow's milk, curd and ghee, the five ingredients together known as 'Panchagawya' is given to women after she delivers a baby. Panchagawya is the main ingredient of many of our Ayurvedic preparations. Cow urine is believed to have therapeutic value and used in many formulations [Table 3]. From time immemorial, we have the practice of mopping the floors (clay buildings) in our villages with cow dung. Even today, we have the practice of sprinkling water dispersed with cow dung at the entrance of our houses and the belief is that it repels microbes from entering into the house. On religious occasions (ceremonial occasions), our grandparents use to rinse the utensils with the diluted cow dung solution/dispersion. All these suggest that our forefathers believed that cow dung has anti-microbial effect and cow urine works as a purifier. It is even believed that textiles especially the new ones treated with the ashes of cow dung before they are worn for the first time would have a beneficial effect, probably a hygiene benefit. [5]

Ancient Indian Vedic Scriptures including Manu Smriti, Charaka Samhita and Sushruta Samhita quoted the rational use of these animal products for diseases of the liver, gastro- intestinal systems, heart, lungs, cancer and many others.

Cow Urine Wins Over Diseases

Cow urine has amazing germicidal power to kill varieties of germs. All germ-generated diseases are thus destroyed. Cow urine balances the tredosh (mucous, bile and air), thus diseases are cured. Cow urine corrects functioning of liver. So, liver makes healthy pure blood.

It gives disease resistance power to the body. Cow urine has all elements, which compensate for deficiency of nutrients in our body, which are required for healthy life. Cow urine contains many minerals especially Copper etc. It compensates for bodily mineral deficiency.

The presence of gold salts protects body against diseases. Mental tension hurts the nervous system. Cow urine is called madhya and hridya, which means it, gives strength to brain and heart. Thus, cow urine protects heart and brain from damages caused by mental tension and protects these organs from disorders, and excessive use of any medicine leaves some residue in our body, this residue causes diseases. [6]

Cow urine destroys the poisonous effects of residues and makes body disease free. Electric currents (rays) keep our body healthy. These currents (rays) are present in environment. These rays in form of extremely small currents enter our body through copper. We get copper from cow urine. To attract these electric waves is a quality of copper. Thus, we become healthy. [7]

The nutrients, which are less available in food, are compensated by nutrients present in cow urine and thus help to regain health by acting against the voice of soul (immoral and sinful action), the heart and mind become narrow minded. Due to this, the functioning of body is affected and causes diseases. Cow urine provides mode of goodness. Thus helps us to perform correct activities by mind and protects from diseases. In scriptures, some diseases are said to be due to actions performed in previous lives, which we have to bear.

Ganga resides in cow urine. Ganga is destroyer of sins, thus cow urine destroys such previous sins and so diseases are cured. The diseases caused by entrance of ghosts in body are cured by the intake of cow urine. The Master of ghosts is Lord Shiva. Lord Shiva holds Ganga on his head. Ganga is in cow urine also. Thus, by taking cow urine, the ghosts get to see Ganga over their master's head. So, they are calmed and become peaceful. So, they do not trouble the body. Thus, diseases caused by entrance of ghosts are also destroyed. By regularly taking cow urine before sickness, we get so much immunity that any attack of diseases is repulsed. Cow urine being miraculous poison destroyer destroys the disease caused by poison (Toxin). Extremely dangerous chemicals are purified by cow urine.

Cow urine provides immunity power by increasing resistance power against diseases in human body. It contributes to immunity power. It is not only non-poisonous but also destroys poison. It is anti-toxin. There are many formulations of cow urine in market that have potential therapeutic uses.

The study was carried out in Mandsaur district. The object of this survey was to evaluate efficacy of cow urine therapy on various cancer patients who were reported across from different state of India [Table 4]. Total 68 cancer patients reported during the survey from 8 April 2007 to 15 April 2007 [Table 5],[Table 6],[Table 7],[Table 8],[Table 9],[Table 10],[Table 11],[Table 12],[Table 13] [Figure 1],[Figure 2],[Figure 3],[Figure 4],[Figure 5],[Figure 6],[Figure 7],[Figure 8]. A questionnaire was developed to assess the efficacy of cow urine therapy.

Materials

Patient data relevant to the study were obtained from the following sources:

  • Patients data collection form;
  • Patient's prescriptions;
  • Patient's pathology reports;
  • Patient interview;
  • A questionnaire was developed to assess the efficacy of cow urine therapy.
There was a high proportion (30.87%) of throat cancer and the other prevalent cancer was breast cancer (14.70%) followed by cervix and uterine cancer (5.88%), buccal cavity cancer and sinus (4.41%) lung cancer, lymphoma and bone cancer (2.94%), both throat and buccal (5.88%) and other cancer (8.82%), respectively.

The symptoms (pain, inflammation, burning sensation, difficulty in swallowing, irritation etc.) of cancer patients were categorized in severe, moderate and mild categories, respectively. The result are presented in [Table 14].1-14.7, [Figure 9] and [Figure 10] .

Persons suffering from cancer were told that they would not survive for long; cow urine therapy was performed on such cases. Out of the many patients, who were suffering from cancer for the last 4 years are now leading a healthy life.

Intensive study of the data of cancer patients revealed that the degree of severe, moderate and mild symptoms were 82.16%, 15.8% and 1.58% on the first day and 7.9%, 55.3% and 36.34% on the seventh day, respectively. The results are shown in [Table 14].7.

It was evaluated that patients who were receiving cow urine therapy since 2-3 months were most benefited. Hence, this traditional therapy is really a boon to cancer patients.
