“I have this ancient herbal practitioner selling me 5,000 rupees priced oil containing Swarna Bhasma, Heera Bhasma, Navaratna Bhasma. He says that it can cure vitiligo, premature ejaculation, erectile dysfunction, Motor neuron disease, etc. “
I come across such queries at least 3 – 4 times a week. If anyone is trying to sell any costly oil with all the crazy, too-good-to-be-true claims, report to nearest police station immediately. It is a scam and every time, that Ayurveda doctor is not a qualified one.
Bhasmas for external application?
None of these costly bhasmas – prepared from silver, gold, costly gems such as coral, emerald etc are mentioned in any of the Ayurvedic text books that I have read thus far.
Bhasma absorption through the skin route is near to impossible. Even they do not have any appreciable local action such as improving blood circulation, stopping bleeding etc.
Hence, any cream or oil or ghee product for skin application containing these is a hoax product.
Why people fall to this trap?
Simply because they are desperate to get rid of the disease and they do not have access to authentic and qualified Ayurveda care.
Be suspicious about
Any claim that is too good to be true,
Any medicine that is exorbitantly costly. There are always less pricier option of medicine for any disease in Ayurveda, without any compromise on the disease curing capability.
It is true that Heera Bhasma, Swarna Bhasma etc are used in therapeutics. But external application is not indicated for them.
