Agnijith: Ayurvedic Medicine for Skin Problems
Agnijith is the healing and soothing skin balm given by Dr. Parameswaran Nair to people suffering from various skin problems. The healing power of Agnijith to provide a complete cure for various skin problems and its miraculous ability to refurbish skin into the earlier vitality has won worldwide recognition and reputation over the years.
There is an interesting story behind this herbal medicine. The secret of the herb was handed to him by his uncle who had got the secret from an old Sanyasin (Nomadic Scholar).
Parameswaran Nair first tried the balm while living with a physician to learn medicine in the gurukula tradition. The patient was a three-year-old girl who had suffered extensive burns when she fell into a vessel in which rice gruel was being cooked. All the herbal cures known to local physicians proved ineffective. So he reluctantly asked his Guru (teacher) to try the medicine which he had learnt from his uncle. With his teacherr’s permission, Dr. Nair treated and completely healed the child from the effect of burns.
The curative power of the herbal balm is now an accepted fact in Kerala. Many of the allopathic doctors in Kerala prescribe this medicine to the patients as it renders low-cost and fast cure for various skin problems. Agnijith is found to be effective in treatment of Burns and Burn Scars, Keloids & Keloid Scars, Leukoderma and Vitiligo, Psoriasis and Eczema, Pregnancy Scars and Stretch marks, Bedsores, Surgical Scars, Itching, Sun Burns, Skin Rashes, Diabetic Foot Ulcers, Chicken Pox Scars etc.
Renowned Malayalam Writer, Film Maker and Jnanapeedam winner, Shri. M. T. Vasudevan Nair, says he was amazed by the power of Agnijith, in curing burns and burn scars. He had prompted Dr. Parameswaran Nair, to give more publicity to this system of medicine, so that a great medicine from our heritage, benefits the masses and is passed on to the next generations.
Mr N. Gopalakrishnan, writer and Kendra Sahitya Academy Award winner matches up the skin medicine “Agnijith” with the great figure of Indian Mythology, Indarjith, who kills Indra, the king of heaven. He says Agnijith can be rightly called so as it defeats Agni (fire) and he calls the medicine a “wonder drug”.
“In Indian mythology Indrajith, son of Ravana got the name as he defeated Indra the lord of heaven. Likewise Agnijith, the natural burn and burn scar cream deserves its very name as it defeats Agni (fire). Whether it is a small casual burn sustained in the kitchen or from the electric iron to near fatal high percentage burns, whatsoever the reason, all burns are healed by Agnijith. It is a wonder drug. I have seen cases in which almost the whole of the face was burned deep. These cases treated with Agnijith were healed without leaving even a trace of the horrid scars. The faces grew soft, normal and natural skin. From the irritation caused by a mosquito bite to serious skin condition almost every conceivable skin problem is effectively solved by this magical medicine. Every household should keep a small container of Agnijith. Apart from this light application of Agnijith on healthy facial skin enhances the glow and texture of the skin. You may believe this and try Agnijith or you may try Agnijith and believe this.”
