Swami Ramdev says that while allopathic system of medicine is symptomatic, the ayurvedic system of medicine is systemic. Ayurved Medicines work on the physiological systems like
Endocrine System etc
and strenghten them
What is the unique contribution of Baba Ramdev?
Baba Ramdev has taken the Pranayam Techniques from the himalayan caves to the masses.
Those who do
Bhastrika Pranayam for 10 minutes
Kapalbhati Pranayam for 20 minutes
Anulom Vilom Pranayam for 20 minutes
Bhramari Pranayam for 2 minutes
Udageetha Pranayam for 2 minutes
may not even have any need to take the medicines.
So pranayam is like a deep acting anti-miasmatic remedy that we have in homeopathy. But as two patients will do pranayam with different levels of sincerity there will also be a differential in what they gain.

Hi Dr. Gupta
Anulom Vilom Pranayam is the best yogic remedy for pancreatic cancer. Please contact experts at the website
to know about the ayurvedic remedies.

Thank you for sharing this. I recently came to know the good works of Swami Ramdev and seems very promising for the country. Please share more in future.
Reva V on 2009-11-17This thread continues beneath the following ad.Sir,
Preparing medicines by boiling and also combining different pishti and dividing by 60 is a laborious process. Is there any ease to use medicine which has combined all the ingredients in to one tablet ? Also is there any medicine to be taken to get relief at the time of migraine head ache ? Pl advise. Thanks.

Please work out the constitution of the patient and then select the indicated remedy. It will work as wonder. The patient may start with Belladonna 200. If that doesn't help Nux Vomica 200. If that too doesn't help detailed case taking is needed.
kadwa on 2014-02-17Dr.Kadwa,
Thanks for the suggestion.I treat myself and family members with homeo combinations in 30 potency for ordinary ailments like cold cough etc.For acute migraine attack even Iris, gels, cimici,sang,spig,cycl,nux,arg.n and many more I have tried giving only very mild relief or no relief.Finally my wife ends up taking paracetamol.Now my daughter is also getting it.
But treating a chronic case with single remedy is difficult for me.Some give importance to modality, others to characteristic symptom , others to mental symptom while fixing a single homeo medicine. So there is no clear cut way for a learner. Also authors differ on potency.
So I prefer to give ayurvedic medicine in the background because it strengthens the constitution with several combination of herbs. Since ayurvedic allows combinations, fixing a drug is relatively easy.
santh1946 on 2014-02-17This thread continues beneath the following ad.Dear Dr.Kadwa,
I thought that Medha vati + Medha kwath+ (moti+Praval pishti+ Godanti bhasma) is over dose since Medha vati already has Brahmi etc ingredients that are present in Medha kwath and the above pishtis are also present in Medha vati. So I tried for my daughter (age 28) only giving Divya Medha vati 1 tab twice after food. In just 4 days the medicine started side effects like churning the stomach and gas problem. After stopping it the problems disappeared.(Then I gave her Sufi30 & Liver 30 both Soham foundation homeo combinations and her stomach improved)
I have also tried for my BP, Divya Mukta Vati which produced nervous symptoms.Some have reported blocked nose problem with its use.
(Baidyanath Aswagandharistam+ Arjunarishtam and also Himalaya Abana which I use do not have any side effect.)
When Bhasmas and Pishtis are not prepared properly and Mercury & Sulphur are not purified properly in Ras preparation, Ayurvedic medicines are not 100% safe. By and large herbs are ok.
So the lesson I have learnt is not to use such medicines.With due respect to Baba Ramdev, his teaching yoga en-mass without knowing individual's medical problems is risky.(one boy reportedly collapsed during one such yoga session.)
Sir,Do you know any other ayurvedic pure herbal combination for migraine ? Thans & regards.
