Cow technology can be used to cure cancer, claimed a Nagpur-based Ayurvedic college further stating they have scientific proof that cow products can be used for therapeutic purposes.
The doctors from GoVigyan Anusandhan Kendra (GVAK) brought together patients, case studies, experts and doctors from various central laboratories in a media interview, according to a news report by The Times of India. They openly challenged experts at the Tata Memorial Hospital, who said there was no evidence to support the claim that cow urine cures cancer.
It all began when Bharatiya Janata Party’s Bhopal candidate Sadhvi Pragya Singh claimed that she was cured of breast cancer after she consumed cow products. She says that consuming Panchagavya (a combination of milk, ghee, yoghurt, urine and dung of cows) helped her heal.
Tata doctors, in turn, accused her of spreading misinformation and misguiding cancer patients. A doctor who operated upon her tumors also refuted her claims saying that it was surgery and not cow urine that saved her.
Vaidya Nandini Bhojraj, the dean of GVAK, said that they have hundreds of case studies to prove that cow urine can completely cure cancer.
According to the president Dr. Hemant Jambhekar, cow-based products such as milk, ghee, gomutra (cow urine) and cow dung have reportedly played a role in “curing” many cancer patients seeking treatment at GVAK.
He told Times of India that patients with breast cancer, oesophageal cancer, and cervical cancer were “cured” of the disease after undergoing treatment at GVAK.
Cow therapy refers to treating diseases using cow products. The preparation Panchagavya is five cow products - milk, ghee, yogurt, urine, and dung - mixed in specific proportions, which is believed to treat incurable diseases such as cancer.
In recent years, Ayurvedic hospitals in Nagpur and Valsad have been treating diseases like sinusitis, allergic rhinitis and migraine using Panchagavya. These hospitals have been carrying out treatments for as little as Re 1 and have been seeing a steady stream of patients who flock to them.
Strangely, there are ample testimonies from patients who have been reportedly cured of cancer.
Many studies on cow urine say that it has antiseptic, antimicrobial and anti-cancerous properties. Read about the many healing qualities of cow urine or gomutra. But do these qualities mean gomutra is a panacea as naturopaths and holistic healers claim? Science isn’t 100 percent in on the claim.
While it’s true that cow urine does have certain therapeutic qualities, it’s not any different from the urine of other animals, according to experts.
