  3. Raj Narang says:


    I want to ask you one thing that in the importance of Cow urine for Itching we can use Ark or have to use Cow Urine only.

  4. For internal use any thing that is fresh urine / ark / tablet is Ok. For external use only urine is recommended.

  5. ravikumar says:

    Can we take cow urine daily though we don’t have any health problems as a prevention?

  6. Yes. It will remove toxins from ones body. Prevent infection and many other preventive benefits.

    It is best to take cow urine fresh early morning empty stomach. If fresh cow urine is not available then one can take either of 3 forms mentioned in this blog.

    Some people may have burning symptom after taking cow urine in any form and I would say they can try it for a week or so. If the burning sensation still remains then

    Hare Krishna Pr,
    I wanted to know what to use from cow therapy and mother cow products for a person suffering from Typhoid. and what precautions to be taken for the same specially in the winter season (Dec – Jan).
    Can the person be given pure ghee of cow in this condition. please guide.
    thank you very much.


    ANS – These things can’t be answered in public forum. Still I plan to write about basic ayurvedic lifestyle and many things will be clear by that. We should avoid ghee during typhoid as modern docters say. General principal is that in any type of fever one should fast. That is best cure. Yes some medicines may be required for some cases. If you are taking allopathic medicine and you might have to require some food. So as I mentioned all these cannot be discussed publicly till we go point by point as I intend to write.

    Hello Sir,
    Thanks very much for posting the benefits of Gavmutra.
    Is it ok if one consumes cow urine more than 200 ml. or are there any side effects?
    I get cow urine from a small tabela, how would I know if the cow is healthy? There are nearly 10 cows so is it ok to consume different cows urine or should I stick to one?
    Thnanks very much for your kindness.

    Ans – Daily we should not consume more than 50 ml generally. If you take once a while 200ml for cleaning stomach on empty stomach is ok. On daily basis 20 – 50 ml is ok as suitable for every person as per his own prakruti.

    If we consume more on daily basis it will increase pitta (fire, acid) to level where it can be harmful to us.

    Unless she is extremely sick and lying down etc urine is ok. Also urine from different cow is ok. But take care that they have vedic cows as described in my blog before.
