  2. 2. Philosophy of Ayurveda• The term Ayurveda means “knowledge (veda) of longevity (ayus).• Ayurveda was evolved through intuitive, experimental & perceptual methodology in India.• The philosophy of Ayurveda is aimed at putting people in touch with themselves on a deeper spiritual level. www.cozwecare.org

  5. 5. Metals as medicine• The presence of toxic heavy metals in Ayurvedic preparations is not surprising.• There is a long tradition in Ayurveda, as well as in tantric and Siddha alchemy, for ingesting mercury and gold for medicinal purposes.• Charaka and Susurta Samhitas permit the use of mercury, but for external use only.• Vagbhatta (6th-7th century A.D.) recommends internal uses of mercury for therapeutic ends. www.cozwecare.org
  6. 6.

  7. 7. Principle of Rasashatra• Ayurveda considers all substances, whether they come from animals, vegetables, or the earth (that is, minerals) as medicines, provided they are applied in a proper way and for specific purposes.• Mercury and gold were considered elixirs of life which could confer immortality. www.cozwecare.org
  8. 8. • The ancient doctors recommend the use of the following in medical concoctions: bile, fat, marrow, blood, flesh, excreta, urine, skin, semen, bones, tendons, horns, nails, hoofs, hair, bristles and pigments obtained from a variety of animals.• This follows as a logical consequence of the Ayurvedic philosophy that like-nourishes-the-like: flesh is nourished by flesh, blood by blood, fat by fat, bones by cartilage, marrow by marrow, semen by semen, foetus by eggs... and so on. www.cozwecare.org
  9. 9. Alchemy in Classical texts• Charaka Samhita recommends the use of gold, along with five other metals (silver, copper, lead, tin and iron) and minerals like arsenic, antimony, sand, lime and red chalk.• Charaka and Susurta Samhitas permit the use of mercury, but for external use only.• Vagbhatta (6th-7th century A.D.) recommends internal uses of mercury for therapeutic ends.• Tantric alchemy equates gold with immortality. www.cozwecare.org

  29. 29. GMP• The traditional process since 5000 years, of turning heavy metals into bhasams "detoxifies" them and makes them harmless.• If the manufacturers faithfully followed the instructions in the classic Ayurvedic texts, there would be no problem of toxicity. www.cozwecare.org
