gelatin in medicines


Recommended Posts

Guest Singh

VJKK VJKF,

Just have recently been prescribed a medicine in a form of soft gelatin capsules for a health condition ive had for many years. I've checked and there isnt an alternative form.

I wanted to ask would this break someones rehat or should they not be allowed to take Amrit?

You can request a veggie friendly alternative. Not the end of the world though... It might be if you were to stop taking them...

Can you tell us the condition? (or PM if that feels more comfortable) - there are posters here with a lot of knowledge on natural medicine and they might be able to suggest something you haven't seen/heard.

get your prescription and take it down to be filled and ask the pharmacist because ultimately he/she will be able to source vegicaps ...docs just have a screen in front them which gives them the generic items... many people cannot eat gelatin, muslims, jews, vegetarians , vegans  I'm sure there will be an option for you

DO NOT take the gelatin. Their are alternatives. If you tell us the medicine then we can advise you. It is better to take ayurvedic/natural medicines instead of allopathic ones which only provide temporary symptom management with a whole host of side effects. It is better to cure it rather than go to these glorified drug reps (aka 'doctors') that put profits before patients. Western medicine is just a big racket of the pharmaceutical companies that prey on people's suffering to extort as much money as possible by creating and prolonging the disease state. If you want something effective ditch all of this and go back to ancient systems of medicine that have been blackwashed to protect the interests and monopoly of the pharmaceutical corporations.

pray to God before you take them to bless and purify the medicine and gelatine.  apologise for eating the gelatine, ask His permission to do so, ask Him to stop you from taking them if it is wrong or guide you away form them.  Pray for the animal who suffered to be blessed.  ask him for good health so you can serve Him better.

in this day of vegan alternatives, why don't GPS and pharmacists offer up vegan friendly alternatives?

Because as jkv penji says, they only can offer what they have in front of them. They don’t offer vegan friendly alternatives unless requested. Or it maybe the cost.

if the OPs meds are a loose powder inside the caps he could open the cap and just take the powder with a water chaser , I mean the capsule is just to make swallowing easier , that's what older Amritdhari  Singhs/Singhnian used to do when there wasn't an alternative . Besides don't get too worried about the outer , I mean Bhai Ghanaiya ji gave Singhs water from a bauka (animal skin) I'm sure no one said no I will not take it , it is something  health preserving

yes but that would have been a neutral animal such as goat.

Also if someone really is following veggie rehit then surely they cannot support goatskin tabla?

it is hardly like they lick their hands ...hehe
it was mainly to stop overthinking it i.e. dry powder touching a dry cap is hardly exchanging material ...

This is really irresponsible advice. Are you really suggesting that people not go to doctors and refuse medicine? That is really ignorant.

Even if you buy into the traditional remedies, you must be a total c*ck if you cannot see that life expectancy had been increased with western medicine.

Also, whats your traditional way of dealing with bacterial infection? Or measles for example?

Until you have had medical training, please disappear.

Sangat, please ignore this irresponsible "advice", continue taking your medicines and go and see a doctor if unwell.

Jkv, please provide a karela for Dr nijjer to stick up his /her  jagsaw.

Thanks

Yep, one shouldn’t ignore medical advise and treatment and try to treat themselves. If there are problems or side effects that can’t be tolerated from any medicine, then the patient should approach their doctor and tell them. And then they can advise or refer something else.
