The pesticides present in agriculture processes today have majorly spoiled, or in more specific terms, considerably poisoned the food we eat, such as Fruits, Grains and Vegetables etc. Consequently the resulting breeds of plants have been poisoned over time reducing their immunity enhancing power as compared to non-treated food products.
Since the source of energy in the form of food has lost its powers, its ability to sustain life energy has reduced, thus reducing our ability to fight the diseases and consequent weakening of our internal system.
A lot of research has been done on Panchagavya treatment for strength & enhancement of physical immunity. During this research process, effect of Cow Urine has been studied on the disease fighting capacity of mice.
In Cow Urine, certain chemicals were found which strengthens the disease fighting capacity and increases the life force energy / Prana for sustenance.
Antimicrobial and germicidal properties of Gomutra are due to the presence of urea (strong effect), creatinine, swarn kshar (aurum hydroxide), carbolic acid, other phenols, calcium and manganese; Gomutra exhibits the property of Rasayana Tattwa responsible for modulating various bodily functions, including immunity.
Latest research also shows that Gomutra also has the capacity to fight Cancer cells; its antiCancer effect is due to uric acid’s antioxidant property and allantoin; immunity is improved by Swarn Kshar; and wound healing is promoted by allantoin.
Cardiovascular health is maintained by a number of its components: kallikrein is a vasodilator; the enzyme urokinase acts as a fibrinolytic agent; nitrogen, uric acid, phosphates and hippuric acid act as diuretic agents; ammonia maintains the integrity of blood corpuscles; nitrogen, sulfur, sodium and calcium components act as blood purifiers; while iron and erythropoietin stimulating factor maintain hemoglobin levels.
Renal health is maintained by nitrogen, which acts as a renal stimulant, and urinary components which act as diuretic agents. Its anti-obesity effect is due to the presence of copper ions; calcium promotes skeletal / bone health.
Aurum hydroxide and copper act as antidotes for various poisons in the body.
Through Research done by institutes like, Scientific and Industrial Research Organization team and Cowpathy Scientific Research Organization Center, Nagpur, it has been discovered that Gomutra holds significant importance in the treatment of Cancer and in enhancement of effect of Cancer medicines for faster and smoother recovery from this fatal illness.
Cow Urine has been granted US Patents (No. 6,896,907 and 6,410,059) for its medicinal properties, particularly as a bio-enhancer and as an antibiotic, antifungal and antiCancer agent.
With regard to the latter, it has been observed to increase the potency of “Taxol” (paclitaxel) against MCF-7, a human breast Cancer cell line (US Patent No. 6,410,059).
Such achievements highlight the role of Cow Urine in treatment of bacterial infections and Cancer, and demonstrate that Cow Urine can significantly enhance the efficiency and potency of other drugs.
The Science of Cowpathy has been implemented successfully even on pesticides generated diseases.
Scientists have found that Gomutra provides lymphocytes (a blood component), the capacity to resist the presence of pesticides & protects the DNA from damage which is an additional benefit in Cancer treatment.
Through the above discussion, It is quite evident that by the implementations of Cowpathy and Panchagavya, the techniques used over the years for wellness treatment in India have been based on valid Scientific Research.
Panchagavya line of treatment is accepted well and is effective not only in India but even the World Health Organization is taking substantial steps towards its implementation and its acceptance worldwide.
Cow Urine: Implementation In Allopathic Treatments
Allopathic form of treatment is facing a major issue today w.r.t to the long term effect of usage of such modern medicines.
On regular usage of these medicines, the microorganisms in human body turn immune to their presence and hence, slowly these medicines lose effect.
On the other hand, the body’s self-protection mechanism also starts to get weaker against atmospheric pollution consisting of various harmful organism’s like pests, fungi, etc.
As per WHO. by 2020, antibiotic form of treatment shall lose effect completely.
Hence in such circumstances, it is extremely important to find an alternative line of treatment.
Panchagavya line of treatment has given birth to a new dimension to healing methods.
In relation to Panchagavya, Farmers Scientific Research Organization has recently received a letter of rights from USA regarding Cow Urines effect on disease causing organisms and Tuberculosis.
It has been recently discovered that consumption of Gomutra, along with antibiotics, increases the healing effect of antibiotic and the microorganisms in body fail to develop immunity to antibiotics with the use of Gomutra.
In diseases like TB, if Gomutra is used along with TB medicine, not only the medicines usage is reduced but also the treatment time is brought down substantially leading to saving of time as well as money.
It appears so, that, Gomutra inhibits the growth of R-factor, which is a major component of Bacterial plasma and is responsible for body’s self-healing & protection mechanism against bacterial invasion.

Spiritual healing effects of Cow’s Milk
We use different colours for labelling the different elements in the picture as they match the colours of the spiritual vibrations. For example, the spiritual vibrations of Divine Consciousness (or Chaitanya in Sanskrut) are yellow when seen through an advanced sixth sense of vision. Accordingly we have used yellow to label the points related to Divine Consciousness.
The following are some salient features about cow’s milk obtained through spiritual research.
- An Indian cow’s milk is one of the most sāttvik drinks. Milk from cows from other countries is 50% less sāttvik than the milk from an Indian cow. It has the ability to attract Divine Consciousness (Chaitanya) and emits subtle vibrations of Divine Energy (Shakti).
- As a result when we drink an Indian cow’s milk, the cells in the body get charged with the sāttviktā present in the milk.
- There is a spiritual proverb in Sanskrut which states that our thoughts stem from the food that we partake of. Thus when we have sāttvik food and drink, the purification of the whole body takes place. Due to this there is a positive transformation of our thoughts as well. Sāttvik thoughts in turn lead to a person performing only righteous actions.
- The milk from an Indian cow is more sāttvik than milk from other animals.
Various type’s of Cow’s milk
Red cow’s milk is Vaat Nashak,
Brown cow’s milk is Vaat and Pitt Nashak,

- Who have severe low digestion power.
Controversy with the modern science
Many argue that as we grow old, the enzymes useful for digestion and metabolism of milk no more exist in the body.
COW CURD / GODADHI
Curd is obtained by curdling (coagulating) milk with lemon juice or vinegar, and then draining off the liquid portion. The increased acidity causes the milk proteins (casein) to tangle into solid masses, or curds.
In Susruta-Samhita, the virtues and properties of these modifications of curdled cow milk have been described in detail since it is the best of all kinds of food. Curd is a very nourishing food and a valuable source of protein, essential vitamins (Riboflavin etc.) and minerals (Calcium & Phosphorus).
Diseases and Symptoms cured by Cow curd
- According to Ayurveda curd accelerates digestion (Agni tattva), stimulates taste buds and act as appetizer.
- It helps to strengthen the immune system.
- Curd absorbs water from intestines, and, by virtue of this property, it is widely used to treat diarrhea.

Curd is of three types
Sweet, Sour & Bitter.
On churning curd, the remaining whey or liquid is called Buttermilk / Mattha in Hindi.
Sweet Buttermilk is Kaphakarak (Creates Kapha in body) and Pittashamak (alleviates Pitta Dosha)
Sour Buttermilk is Vaatnashak( eliminates Vaata) and Pittakarak (Creates Pittadosha)
It is good for treatment of Diarrhoea, Loose motion, Watery stool, typhoid & intestinal issues.
Buttermilk made out of Cow curd has been identified as equivalent to “Amrit”;
A person who regularly consumes buttermilk does not fall ill.
COW GHEE /CLARIFIED BUTTER / GOGHRTA
Cow Ghee (Ghrta) in Ayurveda, the ingestion of Ghee is like offering the finest of fuels into the fires of digestion-Agni tattva. Ghee builds up the internal juices of the body-Rasa, which are destroyed by aging and increases Ojas (strength), the underlying basis of all immunity and the “essence of all bodily tissues”.
According to Bhav Prakash Nighantu (written by Bhav Mishra), cow Ghee is not only helpful in improving eye-sight and digestion but also improves memory, intelligence, complexion, voice and physical beauty. It gives strength to the body and increases the life span.
Ghee, In Ayurveda
Among the four types of oily material, Ghee is the undisputed choice of Ayurveda due to its power to assimilate effectively the properties of the ingredients added to it without losing its own properties. Numerous Ayurveda medicines are prepared by the use of Cow Ghee.
Ghee is believed to be the best for human consumption. It is full of nutritive qualities. Ghee is sweet, soft, cold potency, slightly coating, brings about Oleation, effective in flatulence, psychiatric disorders, epilepsy, abdominal colic &fullness and fever. It mitigates Vata and Pitta.

- The curd of milk from cows is churned to obtain butter, which is heated to obtain Ghee. This type of Ghee is useful in ailments like Tuberculosis, Anemia, Piles & Pitta disorders.
Use of Cow products in Agriculture & Energy production
India is an agricultural country and 70% of its population is dependent on agriculture for its survival. Since time immemorial, cows have been a major contributor onto the field of agriculture. Historical data is proof of the fact that, as long as there has been loving focus on Cow’s welfare and its treatment as described in ancient scriptures, we have achieved highest level of progress in the field of economy and spirituality.
Few facts about the Economic Progress with Cow Products
For Farmer community in Punjab, India, milk production from cows has been much more beneficial financially, than Agriculture.
As per statistics published in 1989:
Dairy industry production / hectare – Rs. 4548
As against yearly production of grains being:
Dhaan-Wheat – Rs. 2423
Peanuts-Wheat – Rs. 1870
Wheat-Cotton – Rs. 1798
Makka-Wheat – Rs, 1788
We, as a nation are highest producer of cow’s milk in the world.
Amongst the milk production in the country, 40% comes from cows.
The White Revolution, also known as Operation Flood, gave a major boost to the dairy sector in India in the late 1960s by producing milk in rural areas through smallholder producer cooperatives and moving industrially-processed milk from these smallholder sources to urban demand centers. This established the much-needed linkages between rural producers and urban consumers. The growth achieved has been uninterrupted ever since and culminated in India becoming the world’s single largest producer of milk since the mid-1990s.
With over 80-million farming households involved in dairy related activities, the dairy industry has emerged as a single largest contributor to the Indian economy. More than 70 per cent of India’s milk is produced by households who own only one or two milk animals.
The reason behind white revolution was not just to protect and support existence of Indian cow breed but majorly to support the survival of rural life of poor farmers and their rise in society standards.
Before the White Revolution started the farmer’s income was derived almost entirely from seasonal crops. The income from milch buffaloes was undependable. Only private traders and middlemen gained as the marketing and distribution system for milk was controlled by them. Being perishable, farmers were forced to sell milk to whoever offered to buy. Often, they had to sell the cream of the milk at throwaway prices.
Role of Cow Products in Energy production
Most of the developed countries today are facing a serious issue regarding energy production. It is estimated that petrol, diesel and kerosene oil reserves shall be extinct in 20-25 years.
If we dedicatedly work on wellness of cows and their preservation over the coming years, the energy predictions envisaged today can be avoided.
