BHOPAL (Madhya Pradesh): Several Ayurveda practitioners, who have set up their stalls at International Van Mela -2021, claim that they can cure persons suffering from Covid-19.

The five day event, organised by the Forest Department of the state government and the MP State Minor Forest Produce Cooperatives Federation, began at the Lal Parade Ground in the city on Tuesday.

Vaidya Santosh Anand Jaiswal from Jabalpur, who has been an Ayurveda practitioner for 22 years, claims that he has cured scores of Covid-19 patients and they include many on ventilator support. His medicine is named ‘Purana Bukhar’, which, he says, is a mixture of 10 potent herbs. The patient has to take three tablets in a day for a complete cure. He also claims that he can cure pneumonia in just one dose of his medicine.

“I have written about my medicines to the Prime Minister, the Chief Minister and the Ayush Department,” he said. However, there was no response. His stall No. 1 is in the Sushrut Dome at the Van Mela.

According to Vaidya Ram Kishore Pawar from Indore, manning stall no. 23 in Amaltas Dome, Covid is a form of typhoid which can be cured by taking his medicine for 40 days with honey. The patient has to take one ‘pudiya’, priced at Rs 40 for 40 days besides Sankat Phataphat Churna, which costs Rs 250.

In the same dome SD Karpare, a retired deputy ranger of the forest department from Chhindwara is vending his medicines from stall number 17 (Amaltas Dome).

His Covid care is called “Khansi Ka Vishesh Lavan” and cures coughing. “If there is no cough, there is no Corona,” he reasons.

He believes that Covid is caused by pneumonia. When asked why he is not advertising his medicine, he said that “I am not interested in showing-off.”

At stall number 21 in Amaltas Dome, Dr Hemant Shrivas from Obaidullaganj is offering Trikuti Churna to keep Covid-19 at bay. The medicine has to be taken for three months. A 50 gram pack of the Churna is priced at Rs 130. He is also selling Anu Tel. A 50 ml bottle of the Tel costs Rs 80.

Around 250 stalls from across the country, mainly from Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh, have been put up at the event under nine domes. Though the event is supposed to be international, there are no participants from other countries. “Participants from other countries haven’t put up their stalls. They will take part in the event online due to Covid-19,” said Atul Shrivastava, one of the officials of the forest department.
