Use of Swarna bhasm in poisoning:
In olden days, when there was poisoning, first vomiting and purgation was induced to remove remnant poison in the gut. Then, to cleanse the heart, Tamra bhasma was administered to the patient. After that, Swarna bhasma is administered for a long period of time. By such Swarna administration for long time, the body becomes as pure as Gold. The term used for this is ‘Hemapanga’.

Na Sajjate Hemapange padmapatre ambuvat visham || – Ashtanga Hridaya Sutrasthana 7th chapter

In a person who has been given Gold bhasma for a long time, the poison can not do any harm, similar to a water drop that can not touch the leaf of the lotus.
So there is reference of long term use of Swarna Bhasma, but it has to be done under strict medical supervision only.

Effect on Tridosha – Balances Vata, Pitta and Kapha.

Can you tell how swarna bhasma can be added to oil for abhyanga and in creams and lotions? Also possibly the recipe for the same?
Dr Hebbar: External use of swarna Bhasma does not have much impact as it is not well absorbed via skin. Hence it is not worth the money.

  56. Sir, I started giving swarna prashna for my 2.9 year old baby for the past 3 months(may 12 started.) Initially, after giving ten days took a break for 15 days as she had cold. Then, again started from June9th till now. But she gets skin rashes now and then. And also she became too emotional nowadays. And she Is getting frequent colds together for days. I worry these are all some adverse effects. Because earlier she has never got rashes at all. Also she was not emotional . Cold also she never got like this very frequently almost after every 2 days. Are all these normal. or should i stop the medicine. She is a very normal and active child and started to school this June . Please advise. I got the medicine from my local doctor and she advised me to give 4 drops which should contains 4 mg of swarna prashna .Thanks.

    • The frequent cold episodes are more likely due to rainy season.
      4 Drops per day is the right dose. Consider reducing the dose to just 2 drops per day.
      IF you are giving it daily it can only be continued for 6 months. After that, it is better to stop using it.

    Can sawrna bhasam help in paralysis treatment? ?

    • 4 gram of swarna per day is very high dose. If it is just 4 miligrams, then it is fine to continue for 40 days. Swarna bhasma, along with other medicines such as Balarishta, Ksheerabala taila 101 etc are used for the treatment of paralysis.
      In most of the cases, Basti treatment, oil massage etc are also highly recommended.
