Indian doctors have urged people not to cover themselves in cow dung and urine as a treatment for Covid, saying it risks spreading the disease faster.

Medics spoke out after it emerged that Hindus in western Gujarat state have been visiting cow shelters once a week to douse themselves in excrement, which is then washed off with milk.

They believe feces from a cow - a holy animal to Hindus - will boost their immune systems, helping to both prevent and cure Covid.

But Dr JA Jayalal, president of the Indian Medical Association, warned the 'cure' doesn't work and may actually help to spread the virus as often-sick people gather in groups to undergo the treatment.

Some Indians have turned to unproven 'cures' for Covid as the virus runs rampant in the country and proven treatments - such as oxygen and vaccines - run in desperately short supply.

Medics in rural parts of Maharashtra state warned that patients are being brought to them with marks from hot irons held against their skin by witch doctors in an attempt to drive the virus out.

Others are coming to shelters such as Shree Swaminarayan Gurukul Vishwavidya Pratishthanam, a school run by Hindu monks near Ahmedabad, to undergo cow dung 'therapy'.

The shelter is located just across the road from the headquarters of Zydus Cadila, which is developing its own COVID-19 vaccine.

Gautam Manilal Borisa, a manager at a pharmaceuticals company and frequent visitor, insisted to reporters that bathing in cow dung had cured him of Covid when he caught the virus last year.

'We see ... even doctors come here. Their belief is that this therapy improves their immunity and they can go and tend to patients with no fear,' he said.

Believes mix both cow dung and urine - which has been used in Hindu rituals for centuries for its supposed therapeutic and antiseptic properties - and then cover their bodies in the mixture.

As participants wait for the dung and urine mixture on their bodies to dry, they hug or honour the cows at the shelter, and practice yoga to boost energy levels.

The packs are then washed off with milk or buttermilk.

'There is no concrete scientific evidence that cow dung or urine work to boost immunity against COVID-19, it is based entirely on belief,' said Dr Jayalal as he urged people not to visit such centres.

'There are also health risks involved in smearing or consuming these products - other diseases can spread from the animal to humans.'

Indian doctors have urged people not to cover themselves in cow dung and urine as a treatment for Covid, saying it risks spreading the disease faster.

Those doctors are wasting their time.
They are trying to counter a belief system that dates back to the Vedic age(from 5000 BC). It's gonna be really difficult to do that.

Cow urine and dung are part and parcel of Ayurvedic medicine. Ayurvedic medicine originated in India thousands of years ago. Some would tell you three thousand years ago but hey... it could be more.

The Hindus have always seen the cow as an embodiment of their deities/gods and as a result, anything that comes out of the cow(whether milk, urine or dung) is automatically seen or held as having medicinal and spiritual properties. And this, is a belief that they have held for thousands of years. They believe that cow urine, for instance, can cure just about any sort of disease that you can think of and for this reason, some take cow urine in the same way you would take normal medications.

In fact, cow urine is equivalent to holy water under Hinduism as it is sprinkled on adherents during certain religious observances to render them 'sanctified'. The holiest urine is that of a pregnant cow.

It is going to be really difficult to disabuse their minds of such thoughts. The doctors can only keep trying. The practise of using cow dung and urine as 'medicine' goes as far back as the Vedic era like I said earlier. Some Hindus would naturally pick that over modern medicine.

A more deadly epidemic is religion and poverty. The combination of the two is worse than death.


The rich ran away from the country taking their Hindu gods with them on their jets, the poor are here doing these and risking another infection like tuberculosis and whatnot

When people are scared and desperate (particularly when it has to do with their very survival), rational thinking goes out the window; hence, I don't blame them.

The Indian strain of Covid-19 is even affecting and killing VACCINATED PEOPLE, and it's spreading like wildfire. The thing just be like wetin village people send with 6G futuristic network.

Research can't catch up with the rate of viral penetration, so if you're poor and you can't rent a jet and run abroad, you do WHATEVER IT TAKES to keep yourself and your family alive, hoping it all works out in the end.

This is just a byproduct of religion. So are you. That's why you attach God to every damned thing your eye sees or your ear hears.
