there is always a strange thing which i always notice in the caes of our most honourable physician - Dr Surendra Jee Sir jee, you are always ready with so much tabular data / references and this is why everybody is so huge fan of you as a person. thanks a tons for such an elaborative study on cow ghee and i am sure our nashik bhai bandhu will also come up with some new shlokas on goghrit as this is i feel their fav topic.
dear sir, first of all we should learn a lot from you in presenting any known or unknown topic... really wonderful sir.... i prescribe go gruta following our saints .... iam getting good results... but still very tough to enlighten somany who question me or ignore in usage of go grutam as in routine... thanks sir keep coming up with known facts in more focused way in explaining ????? god bless all.
yes sir i truly agree with you with this,only corporate world using marketing gimmicks,infiltrating the good things,as whatever people see they believe that without facts as it is been promoted by big stars. sir there was huge use of go gritha in good olden days ,when people use to prepare there ghee at home. and in ayurveda too there is more emphasis on taking go gritha only. this only reason you can say there is less heart problem that time compare to today stress full life. so we cannot get much reference about hridya roga in ayurveda more. thank you sir for elaborating this....
Excellent information sir. one more thing that cow's ghee is even described as hridya by some of our ancient teachers of ayurveda. So we can assume that people who exercise regularly and have good agni can easily digest cow's ghee without any ill effects if consumed in moderate amount as even ayurveda says that anything consumed in excess is harmful.
Dear & respected Dr. Surendra Sir ji. Very beautiful explaination had been given by u. There might be one thing which could work here. We have 2 types of cows - 1) Normal cows & 2) Jersy Cows. The milk & ghee properties of these 2 cow types differ from each other. So if we do the analysis of jersy cow's ghee, the result will be different. Moreover, we know that, for living, apart from LDL, Triglyceride & VLDL, we must have HDL in normal quantity, which is maintained by the ghee in digestible manner.
Dr. chaudhary this is very informative article. even today i see many old persons who in event of any sickness literally drink cow's ghee and get benefit of it even in age of75-80 years of life. they never face BP or cholestrol problem but walk with weight of 20/30/kg on their head. while on other refined oil contain numerous chemical to label them as refined.
Dr. Surender ji I salute you for this elaborated study put by you for all the doctors. during panchkarma treatments we use Cow Ghee in its original form or in form of medicated ghee. we use about 500 gms ghee in 4 days for snehan even in cases of obesity, moderate hypertension. touchwood always got good results. my point is your reference is very true in practical shape. i think cholesterol phobia is marketing stunt of multinationals. the old man still are eating ghee and jokes to youngs that hamne to purana ghee pee rakha to hi hum aaj tak jawan hai. tum kya karoge jindagi me. they do tonting. the main point is one must eat ghee as per agni. or first increase agni then use ghee. as ghee is easily digestable and its self agni vardhak. it nurish all dhatus. lastly ojus.
great sirji.. During our PG tenure, we did some research work regarding " Effect of Ghrutapana over cholesterol levels "..Before starting Ghrutpana ..after Finishing Ghrutapana ...after finishing Samsarjana Krama..n during follow up after 1 month..." we got an incresed levels of cholesterol in jus 2 patients out of 25..lesser in 10 patients..n no significant change was noted in remaining patients... I m routinely advising 40 ml Ghrutapana as Samashamana Dose in a single or divided quatity... modern scientists never stress the standardised traditional method to obtain GHEE from milk..so there might be differences of opinion... Moreover..that much Ghee consumption is in our genes only..the North Indian Belt n middle part of India is consuking far more than normal Ghee in a routine Diets...since centuries..( Saatmyata ) our climate is different than the western one... ( Deshabheda & ecological effect ) our body constitution - food habots - Diet pattern is totally different than western ones.... we cannot follow the normal serological levels set by modern ones everytime to define the normalcy... So I think, research should be done with standardised Ghee made on the Ayurvedic guidelines...n then the discussion should be started.. thanx n warm regards,,
Dr.Chandaliya Sachin has rightly pointed regarding the effect of ghrt in cholesterol profile. Even I found no increase in cholesterol level in patients. But,the only fact lies is the difficulty which lies in counseling the patient to take the ghrta preparations, by allaying their ???? OFpre-conceived concept of increase in cholesterol level on taking the ghrta preparations, which is a huge HERCULEAN TASK.
