First of all, author thanks Gunjanji for giving this opportunity for

discussing Bhasma issue.


Migraine has been discussed a lot on this list, and even author has

discussed it earlier. Recently, a case with heavy chronic migraine

(nearly two year old, accompanied by vomits of any food, except fruit

juices) came for treatment. A 21 year old girl, weighing 45 kg, had used all antacids

earlier, and now no antacid was effective. When she vomited after any

spicy food, she used to get a burning sensation in the esophagous and

throat too. Migrain used to be there since morning, used to increase

till 10 am and thereaftre used to reduce slowly. In this period she

married a boy aged 24 years, who used to work in shifts. The in-laws

were not aware of the girls earlier medical history, but now they

were concerned, since vomits increased after marriage, and girl

started loosing weight too. They simply sent her to parents, "get her treated first and send her back". This is where ayurveda stepped in.


Since author used a similar mixture, the above message from Gunjanji

interested him:


Sutasekhar Ras with Roupya Bhasma: 10 gm

Godanti Bhasma 10 gm

Praval Pishti 10 gm


Pound all together and divide into 21 parts. Take one part after

mixing in honey or ghee+sugar early morning empty stomach, one part

at 4 pm and one at bedtime, say 10 pm. No chillies, only green gram

water, rice water, fruits, milk, buttermilk if not sour. Banana was

permitted. Heem of cumeen seeds, fennel seeds, coriander seeds, raisins was

given from morning till evening, every 2 hours. Heem was made in

water boiled down to 75% in advance.


Within a week, the vomits and migrain intensity came down to 30% or

so and then the medicines were simplified to


Sutasekhar Ras 2 Tabs, Aarogyavardhini Ras 2 Tabs and Praval Pishti 2

pinches (250 mg) all mixed in honey was contined in place of earlier

one week treatment.


Rice, Khitchri, sweet fruits, curd everything started getting

retained. Milk payasam was also started. Husband came to receive her, but sleep by 10 am, get up by 6

am was also practiced, irrespective of shift working of husband.

Within three more weeks Migraine and infrequent vomits stopped all together. Now she is able to retain Chapati made from wheat too, but restricted to only one meal.


Now the discussion on the approach is in order. By continuous use of

antacids, and their ineffectivenss gave clue to high increase in

acidity in the blood, leading to the diagnosis of "Vidagdh Ajirna".

She was not able to retain even milk when she came. The vomits indicated very sour

taste and an estimate of low pH. High pitta state translated to low

pH in blood.


Since dosage of Bhasmas is main issue here, let us divert to

discussion on pH. Balancing the pH is a major step toward well-being

and greater health. The body has to have a balanced pH like most

living things on earth or it does not function correctly. The

alkaline level is very important because research and experiences

recorded by doctors working on Cancer has already proven that disease

cannot survive in an alkaline state and yet they thrive in an acidic

environment. Healing of chronic illness only takes place when and if

the blood is restored to a normal, slightly alkaline state.


The pH is the measure of its hydrogen-ion concentration. The higher

the pH reading, the more alkaline and oxygen rich the fluid is, since

OH ion concentration is more. The lower the pH reading, the more

acidic and oxygen deprived the fluid is.


Human blood stays in a very narrow pH range right around ( 7.35 -

7.45 ). Below or above this range means symptoms and disease. If

blood pH moves to much below 6.8 or above 7.8, cells stop functioning

and the patient dies. The ideal pH for blood is 7.4 Actually a

healthy body is slightly alkaline measuring approximately 7.4. This

ideal blood 7.4 pH measurement means it is just slightly more

alkaline than acid.


Research shows that unless the body's pH level is slightly alkaline,

the body cannot heal itself. So, no matter what type of modality you

choose to take care of health problem, it won't be effective until

the pH level is up. If our body's pH is not balanced, we cannot

effectively assimilate vitamins, minerals in vegetables and fruits.

An acidic balance will decrease the body's ability to absorb minerals

and other nutrients, decrease the energy production in the cells,

decrease it's ability to repair damaged cells, decrease it's ability

to detoxify heavy metals, make tumor cells thrive, and make it more

susceptible to fatigue and illness.


An acidic pH can occur from an acid forming diet, emotional stress,

toxic overload, and/or immune reactions or any process that deprives

the cells of oxygen and other nutrients. The body will try to

compensate for acidic pH by using alkaline minerals. If the diet

does not contain enough minerals to compensate, a build up of acids

in the cells will occur.


In the absence of oxygen, glucose undergoes fermentation to lactic

acid. This causes the pH of the cell to drop from between 7.3 to 7.2

down to 7 and later to 6.5 in more advanced stages of cancer and in

metastases the pH drops to 6.0 and even 5.7 or lower. Our bodies

simply can not fight disease if our body pH is not properly balanced.

Amongst the medicines or herbs to reduce the acidity of blood, the

most active and effectice is Praval Pishti, commonly used in Gulkand,

Chyvanprash too. Praval pishti is nothing but Coral Calcium. Taking

praval pishti in a copper or stream water combined with other fruits

provides reduction of acidic state of blood. Low level of oxygen in

in cells can disrupt their functions, especially those of immune

system. Why diet rich in fruits and vegetable works for cancer

patient may also be clear now. The breathing exercises demonstrated by Swami Ramdev are also seen to help the acid levels, but in busy routines of metro, especially young daughter-in-laws do not get adequate time to carry out breathing exercises.


Praval/Godanti Bhasma and drinking oxygen rich spring or mineral water

with a high pH factor, combined with minerals and other elements, can

help provide our body the natural ability to fight off disease.

Prvala pishti greatly increases the oxygen level in the body,

thereby allowing the body to rid itself of toxic waste that continues

to build up. That's why when we eat "junk food" or heavy to digest

fat/protein rich non vegetarian food, the body diverts oxygen away

from the primary metabolic functions and works overtime trying to

digest our high caloric intake. That's why when we eat junk food or

large meals we feel sluggish afterwards. Body literally slows down

its metabolism to compensate for the overload. The "pot" bellies, central obesity, a major factor in developing metabolism related diseases like CAD, Diabetes, is not due to carb rich foods but tendency to have large two meals, especially the night meal at late overnight hour and sleep thereafter.


Poor oxygen in cells gives rise to muscle aches, poor digestion,

dizziness, depression, irrational behavior, weakness,

irritability,memory loss, circulation problems and stomach acidity

too, the primary subject matter of this post. Members may recall how

Godanti Bhasma was used to cure depression (message# 2719,4832)


Louis Pasteur said before he died: The germ is nothing.

The "terrain" is everything. Prval pishti or Godanti Bhasma doesn't

cure disease. It simply helps keep the pH level of our body fluids

in sync so the body fights disease naturally, like it was meant to.

They contain nearly 60-70 minerals, essential for the working of all



Other purposes of using Praval pishti, Godanti Bhasma as a support


· Maintain optimum alkalinity for optimum health

· Provide easily absorbed and usable calcium

· Cleanse the kidneys, intestines and liver

· Maintain stronger bones and healthier teeth

· Alleviate insomnia, depression

· Keep heart beating regularly, research connection between

arrhythmias and minearal balance

· Help metabolize body's iron

· Aid nervous system

· Breakdown heavy metals and drug residues in your body

· Neutralize harmful acids that lead to illness

· Achieve a healthy alkaline level, neutralizing acid

· Protect body from free radical damage

· Control digestive problems

· Increase muscle and joint mobility

· Combat arthritic conditions and heart disease

· Regulate blood sugar levels and blood pressure



Prvala pishti has a pH of 10-12 which is extremely high on the

alkalizing side. Thus it helps offset the acid / alkaline ratio

within acidic body, returning body to the normal slightly alkaline



Depending on blood pH (Vaidyas guess it by pulse), the dosage as high

as 5 gram a day if pH less than 6, about 4 gram a day if pH 6 to 6.5

and 2 grams a day if pH 7 or above, in the humble opinion of this

author. He himself tried the dose 3 grams a day for 5 days and found

no ill-effects.


Unlike other calcium and minearal bhasmas, Prvala pishti is not found

to cause constipation. Author urges members on this list to try these

two Bhasmas on themselves first and then post their experience for

consensus. Take them in Honey, date crush or ghee+sugar to enhance

their benifits.


If immune system goes in top gear and you start having mucous

discharge through nose, mouth and/or eyes/nose, reduce the dosage.

higher dose is a waste then. Excess minerals (especially magnesium)

may cause moist, loose motions but not watery. Do not be worried if

you see maroon or blackish motions.
