Introduction to Gomed Mani Bhasma & Pishti

Gomed Mani Bhasma and Gomed Mani Pishti are prepared from Gomed stone. Both have same benefits and medicinal uses, but Gomed Mani Pishti has more cooling properties as compared to Gomed Mani Bhasma. Gomed Mani Bhasma is processed under heat and calcined to make bhasma, which also increases its absorption. In KAPHA-PITTA cases, Gomed Mani Bhasma is more helpful, but in NIRAM PITTA cases, Gomed Mani Pishti is more beneficial. Both can be used in place of each other if one is unavailable.

In ayurvedic medicine, Gomed Stone Pishti & Bhasma is used for neurological disorders and heart diseases. In neurological disorders, it is helpful in cases of epilepsy, paralysis, schizophrenia and insomnia.
