A female politician in India who is a member of the ruling BJP, Sadhvi Pragya has claimed that rubbing a cow in a certain way can help one control their blood pressure. “If you rub gau mata from the back towards the neck she will be pleased. If you do it every day, your BP will stay in control,” she said as she fed cows in a cattle shelter.
Sadhvi Pragya is a BJP candidate from Bhopal Lok Sabha constituency.
Explaining the cure in detail, Sadhvi Pragya said, “If you rub the cow from back to the neck, you will experience joy and the cow will also experience joy but if you rub her from neck to back the animal will feel uneasy. If you rub from back to front, your BP will be maintained. This is Amrit (divine nectar). This is scientific. A gaushala (cow shelter) is the best place for Tapasya (penance).”
She also claimed that drinking cow urine cures breast cancer.
“A mixture of gau mutr (cow urine) and other cow products cured my cancer,” said Sadhvi Pragya. She was speaking to India Today TV as she filed her nomination from the seat in Madhya Pradesh.
When asked about the current politics around cows in India, she said it was painful to see how cows are treated in many places. “Godhan amrit hai (owning cattle is like consuming divine nectar),” she told India Today TV.
Sadhvi Pragya also enumerated the various health benefits of the cow and cow products. The biggest health benefit according to her is that consuming cow urine helped her cure her cancer. The BJP candidate from Bhopal, who is also an accused in the 2008 Malegaon blasts case, is a breast cancer survivor. “I was a patient of cancer and I cured myself by consuming gau mutr (cow urine) and panchgavya mixed ayurvedic herbs,” she said.
Panchagavya is a mixture used in traditional Hindu rituals that is prepared by mixing five cow products. The three direct constituents of the mixture are cow dung, urine, and milk; the two derived products are curd and ghee. These are mixed in proper ratio and then allowed to ferment.
