The use and benefits of cow ghee (clarified butter) have been dealt extensively in Ayurveda pharmacology. The right kind of ghee when put into the nostrils is capable of treating stubborn and recurrent sinus allergies and conditions, diseases of the eyes and brain as well as the throat. In fact it is chronicled that most diseases of the area above the collar bone can be effectively treated with cow ghee being dropped through the nostrils. However the ghee should be derived from pure native and forest bread cows – NOT jersey cows or buffaloes or then hybrids being fed with artificial or regulated diets. Moreover the ghee should be extracted from the yoghurt and not the cream or milk and by anti-friction hand churning, rather than machine friction churning which burns of most nutrients and natural prana (or life force). Cow ghee so obtained, becomes a ‘nectar’ with strong medicinal properties Such ghee is helpful in absorption and transport of lipid soluble active principles across cell membranes, which are permeable only to lipid media. Also, ghee has the ability to increase the levels of fat soluble vitamins, especially Vitamin E in the blood which is an important antioxidant in preventing oxidation of LDL in the sub-endothelial space of arteries and thus, preventing atherosclerosis and the consequent heart attack or stroke.
These nasal ghee drops when inhaled through the nostrils effects the entire naso-pharynx region, ocular nerves and vital nerve endings that lead to the brain.
It is no wonder that these drops have been used to treat sinus allergies, eye ailments, ear ailments, headaches and brain disorders such as Parkinson’s and even strokes. Usage of this ghee as drops is also said to have beneficial effects in cases of autism.
For children too, these are extremely useful – besides sinus health – in appropriate brain development. The drops provide a cooling effect to the brain resulting in optimal mental health. These are also very helpful in infant and child nose bleeds, a very common feature among children Additional effects – helps in reducing chapping of lips and other disorders associated with dryness.
