and worshipping him with Bilva leaves, while offering pepper and cummin seeds is said to relieve people of chronic gastric ailments. have written on Indrakshi Shiva Kavacham for curing fever. ‘
Many have written asking me whether there is any alternative because chanting of Indrakshi Siva Kavacham is difficult and the procedure is arduous.
My observation is that we are prepared to follow the instructions of a doctor, though at times, it has no relevance to the problem and the medicine prescribed might be totally irrelevant.
We are cured, in my opinion, because of our faith in the doctor.
Then why don’t we follow the same approach towards Mantras and Pariharas?
There is a Temple and a specific Mantra for high fever.

This was/is used Vedic Rituals including Homas /Havans.
Ancient Indians regarded Cow as Mother ,giver of all Wishes (Kamadhenu) and worshiped it.
There is Gosuktha,Vedic Hymn on Cows.
Cow enters first into a new home when housewarming is done.
While the rationalists,whom I consider to be a species who are convinced that they know everything and what they do not know /understand does not exist, consider the Panchagavya as Psudeo Science,patent has been issued for Cow Products and it is being sold.
Panchagavya Patent Details.
A pharmaceutical composition comprising an antibiotic and cow urine distillate in an amount effective to enhance antimicrobial effect of the antibiotic is disclosed. The antibiotic can be an antifungal agent. The antibiotic can be a quinolone or a fluoroquinolone. The antifungal agent can be azoles, clotrimazole, mystatin or amphotericin.
Panchagavya, an organic product has the potential to play the role of promoting growth and providing immunity in plant system. Panchagavya consists of nine products viz. cow dung, cow urine, milk, curd, jaggery, ghee, banana, Tender coconut and water. When suitably mixed and used, these have miraculous effects.
Cow dung – 7 kg
Cow ghee – 1 kg
Mix the above two ingredients thoroughly both in morning and evening hours and keep it for 3 days

All the above items can be added to a wide mouthed mud pot, concrete tank or plastic can as per the above order. The container should be kept open under shade. The content is to be stirred twice a day both in morning and evening. The Panchagavya stock solution will be ready after 30 days. (Care should be taken not to mix buffalo products. The products of local breeds of cow is said to have potency than exotic breeds). It should be kept in the shade and covered with a wire mesh or plastic mosquito net to prevent houseflies from laying eggs and the formation of maggots in the solution. If sugarcane juice is not available add 500 g of jaggery dissolved in 3 liter of water.
The cow dung and ghee are thoroughly mixed in the morning and evening, and kept for 3 days. After setting, it is mixed regularly for another 15 days, and then added to the other ingredients, and left to sit for another 30 days. Panchagavya is stored in a wide-mouthed earthen pot or concrete tank in open. Sufficient shade is usually provided. It is sometimes diluted before use.
New Zealand researchers claimed that A1 milk contains beta-caesin which is harmful for human beings and leads to diseases like diabetes, cancer and a weakening of the immune system. The results of the NDRI research also indicated that A1 milk that is served to infants and old age people damages the immune system. AK Srivastava, Director, NDRI, Karnal, tells Indiaopines, “In India, the experiment conducted six months ago on animals indicated that A1 milk caused immunity problems. But as of now we have to wait further for a credible source..
When I was young, we had, in our home, a cow.
Later we used to buy from the Yadavas, they are called ‘ konars’ in Tamil.
They had even a street named after them and they lived there.
They used to supply milk to homes.
They shall also supply Curds, Buttermilk.
But Ghee , we used to make Butter and get Ghee.
They also used to deliver Milk from A Cow, which delivered just then.
This is called Seempaal and was used from some illnesses.
The taste of the freshly obtained milk is something to be tasted.
Frothing and with a delicious Aroma the coffee one makes from this fresh milk can not be compared with anything.
There was also the practice of preparing Coffee with Cow’s fresh Milk.
The Milk was not boiled , the body heat of the Cow in the Milk would do.
This is the origin of Kumbakonam Degree Coffee, which is matchless.
Now we have lost all these.
We buy Packets of Milk with no taste.
We do not know if it is Cow’s or Buffaloes.
It is a mixture of all, with stabilising agents.
Not only it is not tasty but it is outright harmful to health.
Then why the promotion of branded Milk?
Simple answer, Greed for money.
Systematic conspiracy to wipe out indigenous breeds and make India dependent on foreign sources as Monsanto has done for Agriculture.
The Ban on Jallikkattu is a part of this great milk conspiracy.
Study by New Zealand Research Group and NDRI , confirm that the Milk from crossbreeds are not only harmful but lowers Immunity ans may even cause Cancer.

What is A1 and A2 milk?
Both A1 and A2 varieties of milk are the product of two genetically different cow breeds. The main proteins available in this milk are whey and casein. Earlier all cows used to be A2 until a naturally occurring genetic mutation in European breeds changed the genetics of milk producing cow herds. And today most of the milk that we consume comes from the A1 variety.
Research in New Zealand on the A1 and A2 breeds showed that casein is most abundant overall, and the genetic variations of the A1 and A2 refer to the beta-casein. Beta-caseins can have a helpful effect on the body. But drinking A1 milk may not be so helpful.
A1 versus A2
Milk of European breeds is addictive, triggers schizophrenia,diabetes and cardiovascular diseases
In July 2007, Dr Keith Woodford, a professor of farmmanagement at New Zealand’s Lincoln Universitypublished a paper titled A2 Milk, Farmer Decisions, andRisk Management that reported how “approximately 500 New Zealand dairy farmers are converting their herds to eliminate production of A1 beta-casein within the milk” responsible for “Type 1 diabetes, heart disease and autism”.
Dr Woodford went on to explain: “The alternative (to A1) is A2 beta-casein, and the associated milk is known as A2 milk. Originally all cow milk was of the A2 type. However, a genetic mutation, probably between 5000 and 10,000 years ago, has resulted in a proportion ofcows of European breeds producing a casein variant called A1 beta-casein. A1 beta-casein is absent in the milk of pure Asian and African cattle.”
He offered “eight strands to the evidence” to the ill-effects of A1 beta-casein: countries with high intakes of A1 beta-casein are the countries with high levels of Type 1 diabetes and heart disease; A1 and A2 beta-caseindigest differently and only A1 beta-casein releases beta-casomorphin7 (BCM7) which is a powerful opioid(addictive) and causes arterial plaque; rabbits fed A1 beta-casein develop considerably more plaque on their aorta and rats show higher incidence of Type 1 diabetes;evidence from American and European investigationsshow that autistic and schizophrenic persons typically excrete large quantities of BCM7 in their urine; and many who are intolerant to milk are able to drink A2 milk.
Dr Woodford was worried that most consumers and dairy farmers worldwide remained unaware of the issues surrounding A1 and A2 milk. Within four years, Indian scientists at the National Bureau of Animal Genetic Resources (NBAGR) came up with their own study. “The A2 allele gene in Indian milk breeds of cows and buffalos are 100 per cent, while in foreign breeds, it is around 60 per cent,” it said in 2011.
NBAGR screened the status of the A2 allele of the beta-casein gene in 22 indigenous breeds and the twodominant foreign breeds Holstein Friesian and Jersey. While the A2 allele was 100 per cent in the top five indigenous milch breeds –Red Sindhi, Sahiwal,Tharparkar, Gir and Rathi – and around 94 per cent in other indigenous dual and draught breeds, its status was merely 60 per cent in Holstein Friesian and Jersey.
According to Dr Woodford, the major consumer market for A2 milk is in Australia where it is available in some 800 supermarkets and 200 convenience stores.However, overall market share is probably less than 1% because of limited publicity. In an increasingly health conscious world, this creates a huge potential for global demand for the A2 milk of our indigenous breeds. For now, we must rethink our strategy of flooding the domestic markets with A1 milk by aggressively pushing exotic breeds at home and opening up the dairy sector toforeign brands.
When we drink the milk of an A1 cow, the body breaks it down to produce high levels of a molecule that is not a healthy sign. This is a bioactive opioid peptide and morphine-related compound called beta casomorphin-7 (BCM7). While A2 milk also causes some of this morphine molecule to be produced, it is negligible ascompared to A1 milk. BCM7 is a very active molecule in our body….
Once in our blood stream, this creates opioid oxidize cholesterol at a high rate, which may be one reason for its link to heart disease. Animal studies have singled out BCM7 since it creates inflammatory reactions in the small intestines. It also changes the hormonal function, as well as affects the nervous and immune system. BCM7 will cause brain fog, poor thinking, and problems with sleep.
These neurologic issues may also be a factor in the concerns with schizophrenia and autism. The ischemic heart disease is the most common cause of death in the majority of countries. A study New Zealand study looking at 20 affluent countries clearly shows higher rates of death from a type of heart disease called ischemic heart disease in A1 milk drinkers, while the A2 variety shows lower cardiovascular problems and type-I diabetes.
Earlier there were no human trial results to check the claims of A1 and A2 milk. But on August 11, 2014 the Curtin University of Australia published a report in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition by Associate Professor Sebely Pal of the School of Public Health. The report found that humans on an A2 milk diet had less bloating abdominal pain and firmer stools since they stayed off the A1 beta casein. The tests were carried out on 41 persons for eight weeks…..
Anurag Tomer, counsel for Swami Achutyanand, tells Indiaopines, “The civil writ petition said that 80 percent of milk provided to consumers in India was adulterated and not safe for human consumption. The petitioner also gave the court a copy of the FSSAI survey report claiming that 68.4 percent of milk in the Indian market was adulterated with the synthetic and detergent materials which were hazardous for health.The Bench of Justice KS Radhakrishnan and Justice Vikramjit Sen took the matter seriously and then hearing of the case began in the month of December 2013.”
Anurag further says, “In the meantime we pointed out to the court that the punishment awarded in India for food adulteration is insufficient. So the apex court in December issued a notice to the Union of India and all the States asking them to bring a suitable amendment in Section 276 of the Indian Penal Code and also suggested the Government to increase the provision of punishment from six months to a life term.”
During the hearing of the case the apex court was also informed about the Allahabad High Court Judgment on where in a similar case the court stated that since the Food Safety Standard Act could take care of all the matters related to food adulteration. Section 276 of the IPC cannot be applied in this.
After the writ petition a counter affidavit was filed by the Director of the Food Safety Authority on behalf of the Union of India in the SC on March 10, 2014 admitting that in the year 2011 a survey was conducted nationwide by the FSSAI. The survey said that 68.4 per cent of milk which was collected from various States was found adulterated with detergents.
The deviations were found highest on account of Fat and SNF content in 574 samples (46.8%) of the total non-conformity, including 147 samples with detergents and two samples with neutrilizers, respectively. Detergent was also found in 103 samples (8.4%). The second highest parameter of non-conformity was the skim milk powder (SMP) in 548 samples (44.69%) including glucose in 477 samples. Glucose is added in milk to probably enhance SNF.
Mohan Singh Ahluwalia, President of Gwala Gaddi, an organization fighting to save native desibreed cows across the country and provide pure milk to the consumers with more than seven lakh twenty thousand members across the country and also the petitioner along with Swami Achutyanand, tells Indiaopines,
“People are losing their faith in milk now. The present condition is very serious as a single person is making a brand of itself and we are against it. Our movement mainly deals with the interests of consumers and we are demanding that pure milk be served to people.” Ahluwalia further says, “Currently there is no law which deals with the standard of milk as in the government guideline it is not clear how to achieve standards whether in a natural way or in an artificial way. Thus all the companies and dairies across the country are doing a black business of impure milk and making huge profits. And Government of India is the part of this conspiracy with its millions of consumers.”
‘The milk you get from Aavin and other companies are toxic A1 milk. Cow’s milk contains proteins, fats, carbohydrates (in the form of lactose), minerals and water. There are two types of cow’s milk : A1 & A2. The main difference between the A1 & A2 milk is their protein component. The protein is of two types : Casein and Whey. There are different types of casein proteins and one particular type is called the BETA-CASEIN which has two variations : A1 & A2. The A1 beta casein is a highly toxic component while the A2 is harmless and safe. Your mother’s milk is A2 and so is the Indian cow’s. It has micronutrients like cytokines and minerals which enhances your immune system. But the western cow’s milk which we drink today, is highly toxic and not suitable for human consumption. ..
Bottom line is, once people drink milk, the western cow’s milk (which contains A1 beta casein) digests differently than the Indian Cow’s milk (which has A2 beta casein). With the A1 beta casein, there’s a release of a ‘peptide’ which a small fragment of protein called ” Beta-Caso-Morphin-7 ” the devil in the milk.
The BCM7 is an opioid (psychoactive chemical) and when it gets through from the stomach into the blood, it can cause all sorts of problems. The human body simply doesn’t like this opioid and it tries to react against it, and depending on the individual’s genetic make up, one could get all sorts of diseases ranging from juvenile diabetes, autism, allergies and etc. To make it worse, BCM7 crosses the Blood Brain Barrier. Which means, it could get in to your brain, resulting in schizophrenia and auto-immune diseases such as MS and Parkinson’s. In children, it could cause several issues for their psychomotor and physical development (a recent study made by Russian scientists has confirmed this).
The west has now woken up to the truth and more and more people are going to A2 milk. This has made the western diary industry nervous. So they’re in the process of converting their useless, toxic A1 cows to A2 cows. They come to India for the A2 cow embryos as a result of which, now some of our wonderful native breeds like the Punganur and Vechur cows are nearly extinct. And thanks to the lack of a mechanism to check the illegal export of embryos at Indian sea ports, they’re doing this with no issues. Today we see western humpless cow in indian diaries , and Indian humped cow in western diaries. Aavin and other milks we get in India now is the toxic A1 kind…

Rahu represents many ill aspects in general. Rahu is identified with Black Cobra, poison, Zircon, black magic, gambling, black gram, black stone, blade grass (Dhruva in Hindi) menial jobs, slavery, all sorts of skin ailments, venereal deceases, impotency, childlessness, jail/imprisonments etc etc. In short this planet mostly gives only negative results when it is ill placed in one’s horoscope.
If Rahu is placed in the fifth house from Lagna or Ascendant, then the native is most likely (he/she) childless and in some cases only female issues and surely no male child. If there is any conjunction with other planet, this result may, however, vary.
Likewise, if this planet is placed in the 6th house, the native is likely to suffer from skin ailments, skin burns, dryness, sore skin etc. That too when the Rahu Dasa is running; and if Rahu is transiting through the 6th house, then ill effects are sure to be there and critical too.
To weed off the negative aspects of this planet, there are many remedial suggestions given in the ancient astrology. One such suggestion is to consume the essence of the Blade Grass daily, about three to five tea spoonfuls, for a consecutive 48 days. This way one gets his/her blood purified and the skin ailment vanishes. This medicinal remedy is so powerful that I have seen people getting better after consuming it.
Growth hormone (GH), also known as somatotropin (or as human growth hormone [hGH or HGH] in its human form), is apeptide hormone that stimulates growth, cell reproduction, and cell regeneration in humans and other animals. It is thus important inhuman development. It is a type of mitogen which is specific only to certain kinds of cells. Growth hormone is a 191-amino acid, single-chain polypeptide that is synthesized, stored, and secreted by somatotropic cells within the lateral wings of the anterior pituitary gland.
How does this enhance Growth?
Increases calcium retention, and strengthens and increases the mineralization of bone
Increases muscle mass through sarcomere hypertrophy
Increases protein synthesis
Stimulates the growth of all internal organs excluding the brain
Plays a role in homeostasis
Reduces liver uptake of glucose
Promotes gluconeogenesis in the liver.
Contributes to the maintenance and function of pancreatic islets
Stimulates the immune system
Increases deiodination of T4 to T3.
Deficiency of Protein result in Growth Failure and short stature among children.
It also causes delayed sexual maturity.
And an unsound and subnormal growth might result in mental issue as well.
GH( growth deficiency) deficiency in adults may manifest as depression.
To cure this GH deficiency GH Therapy is undertaken and its effects are yet to be proved.
It is better to have a balanced diet including Protein.
In our daily Life we may not get a much protein as much as required because of our changed food habits.
Natural Protein food.
Meat is the food that is very rich in proteins. It is also rich in fat. So it is preferred to have the meat grilled or roasted to frying them deep
Thin cuts of: beef, ham, lamb, pork, veal
Ground Meat: bison, rabbit, venison.
Poultry products have their own richness. These foods are rich in protein and contain low saturated fats. Some of the varieties of poultry products are:
Ground chicken and turkey
Eggs ( chicken/ duck)
Soya products are the processed products of Soy. They are naturally blended with proteins and carbohydrates. Some of the soya products are:
Dairy products are naturally healthy and are perfect diet parts. There are various dairy products that can be used. They are:
Black eyed peas
White beans and etc
It is advisable to take protein supplements as a part of our diet.
These should have adequate proteins and excess proteins should have been compensated and this supplement must be easily digestible.
Are these Supplements safe?
To determine the effect of nutritional supplementation on height, weight, and body mass index (BMI) in short and lean prepubertal children.
A prospective, randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled trial of nutritional supplementation at the endocrinology department of a tertiary pediatric medical center of healthy, lean, short, prepubertal children 3-9-years-old. Anthropometry measurements were measured at 6 months.
Two hundred participants (149 boys) entered the study and 171 (85.5%) completed the intervention period. Baseline characteristics including age, sex, height-SDS, weight-SDS, BMI-SDS, and dietary caloric and protein intakes were similar in the formula and placebo groups. ‘Good’ consumers (intake of ≥50% of the recommended dose) in the formula group significantly improved height-SDS (P < .001) and weight-SDS (P = .005) with no change in BMI-SDS compared with ‘poor’ consumers and the placebo group. In the formula-treated group a positive correlation was found between the amount of formula consumed per body weight and the gain in height-SDS (r = 0.44, P < .001) and weight-SDS (r = 0.35, P = .002); no significant correlations were found in the placebo group. No serious adverse events were reported during the study.
Nutritional intervention with the formula was found to be a feasible, effective, and safe approach for promoting the physical growth of short and lean prepubertal children.
Horlicks seems to fit the bill.
I have been watching people consuming it for as long a I remember and I recall doctors prescribing it to convalescents, including pregnant women both pre natal and post natal.
And with added flavor children do not shy away from it.
Though they seem to address the same issue, Longevity there is a minor differnce.
While Ayush Homa increases the Life span in general, the Mrutunjaya Homa addresses the issue of ill health and diseases.
It is one thing to attain Longevity but Disease free Life is another
The Blessing , Aaseervatha Mantra states,
Sree varchasvam ayushyam aarogyam maavithaath
Dhaanyam Dhanam pasum bahuputra laabham
Satha samvathsarm dheeragamaayuhu.
The blessings start with auspicious life.
The rest come later.
Once born it is the desire of one is to live as long as possible.
Dheergayus means a life span of 120 years in Kali Yuga, though it is mentioned as Satha Samvathsaram( 100 years)
Life depends on , contrary to what many think, wholly external forces not in our control,be it the air we beathe, water ,earth,fire and the ether.
We take these for granted.
We would appreciate them only in their absence.
The human body is made up of the five elements that make up the Cosmos.
We are nothing but a reflection, photocopy of the Cosmis in miniature.
One is likely to lead a longer life if these five elements in the Cosmos and in our bodies sync.
If there is a variation, one falls sick and in serious maladjustments one leaves the body.
While we strive to be tuned into Nature’s Rhythm, Nature should also cooperate.
That is not in our hands.
As we are nothing but the Cosmos in a small scale, our chitta ( higher plane over mind and intellect) should will for longevity.
By self tuning the Chitta one controls the Cosmos and its Principles.
This is Yoga.
This fine tuning can be done by chanting, listening to mystically locked sounds called Mantras.
And the propitiator of life , Agni, Fire carries the power of the Mantras to the other elements ,which being the same for us and the Cosmos ignites our Chitta.
And longevity is assured if the Homa Rites are performed correctly, as prescribed in the texts.
There are two types of Homas for Longevity.
The AyushHoma and
The Mrutyanjaya Homa.
Though they seem to address the same issue, Longevity there is a minor differnce.
While AyushHoma increases the Life span in general, the Mrutunjaya Homa addresses the issue of ill health and diseases.
It is one thing to attain Longevity but Disease free Life is another..
It is advisable to perform both at the same time.
It is ordained in the Smriti that these Homas are to be performed every year for a child upto to the age of Five.
And one can have this performed any time in during one’s life till one reaches Sixty.
For them these are performed in Sashtiapthapoorthy and Sathabhishekam.
Maha Mruthyunjaya Homam is dedicated to Lord Shiva to avoid untimely death. The Mruthyunjaya Homam is performed to achieve Jaya or Victory over Mritya or death.

The former is famous for purifying blood and the latter is used as a medicine for in a, it is believed that this homam bestows longevity on the performer.
