Wasting diseases

This Ved Mantra is very interestingly describing a very modern topic regarding the medicinal efficacy of colostrums of a new born cow. It is equally applicable as directive in Vedas about importance of breast feeding.

Colostrums is the pre-milk fluid produced from the mother’s mammary glands during the first 72 hours after birth. It provides life-supporting immune and growth factors that insure the health and vitality of the newborn.

Commercial Exploitation of Colostrums of Cows for Human beings is a big modern pharmaceutical industry.

Breastfeeding in humans as also for new born calves provides natural “seeding” — the initial boost to immune and digestive systems. |


Loss of youth & Vigor

In western medicine which gives no importance to ब्रह्मचर्य ‘Brahmacharya’,it is observed that after puberty, the amount of immunity and growth factors present in human bodies begin to decline. Human body becomes more vulnerable to disease, its energy level and enthusiasm lessens, skin loses its elasticity, and there is gain of unwanted weight and body looses muscle tone. The modern humans also live in a toxic environment, with pollutants and allergens all around us.

Cows in Atharva Ved

Atharva Ved

Research has shown that Colostrums have powerful natural immune and growth factors that bring the body to a state of homeostasis — its powerful, vital natural state of health and well being. Colostrums help support healthy immune function; & also enable us to resist the harmful effects of pollutants, contaminants and allergens where they attack us.

Plus, the growth factors in Colostrums create many of the positive “side-effects” of a healthy organism — an enhanced ability to metabolize or “burn” fat, greater ease in building lean muscle mass, and enhanced rejuvenation of skin and muscle.

It is a very common modern medicine practice to collect colostrums from freshly calved cows to produce medicinal products for boosting disease resistance, and health promotion tonics for sick and elderly humans, specifically in debilitating diseases such as tuberculosis. New born calves particularly males are immediately taken away for slaughter. Cow’s Colostrums are collected for making medicines for the Pharma industries. Calves in general are fed on an artificial feed called Milk Re-placer.

References to in the above ved mantra Atharv 1.12.1-

जरायुजः, उस्रिया, वृषा, स्तन्यन्नेति, वृष्टया, त्रेधा, are clear references to Colostrums – first few days milk of a cow just after calving. Literal meaning of these vedic words are – produce of a just calved cow which is in the process of releasing the placenta, milk giving cow, shower of milk from the udder and three rumens of a cow having played the important role in giving rise to the extraordinary medicinal value of this early milk of a cow. In this Sookt this is being promoted for curing Tuberculosis, as the very Dewata of this sookt- यक्षमानाशन्‌ suggests.-
