Patanjali Yogapeeth to launch cow urine-based drugs to cure diabetes & cancer

Baba Ramdev’s Patanjali Yogapeeth based in Haridwar would soon come out with medicines to cure major chronic diseases like diabetes and cancer out of distilled cow urine. An ultra modern hi tech distillation plant of 8000 litres capacity to purify cow urine for the purpose has been set up at a remote nondescript village of Uttarakshi known as Jangori.
And the man behind setting up the unit is Haridas, a graduate from IIM, Ahmedabad and coordinator of an NGO Manav Seva Mission Haridas with the help of villagers and financial support from Patanjali Yogapeeth. Haridas hails from Maharashtra and came to Uttarakhand for the uplift of the downtrodden and poor people. The cost of the plant is around Rs.40 lakh.
Speaking on the feasibility of the plant, Haridas says, “The distillation unit can generate 8000 litres of distilled cow urine daily. The unit has become a commercially viable proposition as it is helping a villager earn his livelihood as the distilled cow urine is sold at a rate of Rs.25 to 35 per litre in the local market as a product of religious importance and is also used as a medicine."
“Based on the demand, we are planning to achieve a target of 10,000 litres on a daily basis, which would materialize into setting up of a big cow urine dairy in the near future to cater to other agencies,” he explains.
“Acharya Balakrishna from Patanjali Yogapeeth approached me with this idea. The idea seemed interesting to me as I have adopted a school for educating children from poor families and especially for those who are school drop outs. The idea of setting up the hi tech plant started with the setting up of seven distillation units initially which were self funded and the loans have successfully been paid off by virtue of the business done by the villagers. Each distillation unit costed us between Rs.30, 000 to Rs.50, 000. The cost of the unit did not deter me as I had full support of the villagers, who owe the success of making the distilled cow urine a sustainable business model,” avers Haridas.
“The medicinal value of the cow urine has been scientifically proven and has great anti-cholesterol properties”, informs Dehradun based senior scientist Dr Gulshan Kumar Dhingra, who is also Technical Advisor to Manav Seva Mission.
Manufactured by Haridwar based Divya Pharmacy, distilled purified cow urine is being sold in the market at Rs.40 per 100 milli litre with the brand name of Divya Godhan Ark prescribed for indications like general debility, obesity, abdominal diseases, skin diseases, diabetes, cough and asthma. It is recommended in doses of 10 to 20 ml based on the indication and as prescribed by the physician. The efficacy of cow urine as an ingredient to produce ayurvedic drugs for treating cancer and diabetes is currently undergoing clinical trials at Patanjanjali Yogapeeth, Haridwar and All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), New Delhi.
