    Why people still believe in miraculous powers of magical remedies to cure disease?

    Many people may not be aware that there is a law in India known as the Drugs and Magic Remedies (Objectionable Advertisements) Act, 1954 which controls advertising of drugs in India. It makes it a cognizable offence to advertise drugs and remedies, claiming the same to have magical properties. There is a provision of a penalty of up to 6 months imprisonment on first conviction and imprisonment of up to 1 year on subsequent conviction.
    However, sometimes we come across some programs on television channels advertising such products.
    As per the said law, advertising of drugs and remedies as having magical properties for certain diseases mentioned therein is prohibited. Some of such diseases are - rheumatism, epilepsy, pleurisy, obesity, venereal diseases etc.

    There are magical remedies. Because only after tested the manufacturer on several bodies. But always remember the health condition of every patient is not same, so the same medicine or food supplement will not work on every patient or same type of disease.
    If you do not think there is some remedies, then is it possible to spend crores of rupees on television with out being sold their products.
    But yes by seeing only advertisement a person should not purchase that as it might have some reaction to other part of body.
    So always choose to visit a experience medical practitioner to get cure for your disease.

    The law does not prohibit or restrict one's faith and feelings to get cured somehow.
    In fact nowadays I wonder the Wonder Drugs and Magic Remedies law and also the Hippocrates oath liability are all thrown away and m even hospitals give multi-coloured glossy full page advertisements. Many local papers and local TV channels carry advertisements of hospitals and medicines claiming unrealistic cures and treatments.

    But only the sufferer knows his suffering actually. For him when the normal remedies fail to give relief he will be in search of nay wonder drug and magic remedy claim to get relief and cure somehow

    Can the 'rationalists' or the modern medical practitioners really guarantee and do cure all people of any illness. None can. Hence they cannot have a moral right object to people searching for what they themselves cannot give.

    Let us keep faith on ourselves and work sincerely, not leave everything to fate.

    People are the confusing lot. They are easily carried away by one fact that if some one gets benefited with a product or thing, they would like to have it. So this weakness is being en cashed by the gullible companies which market drugs and tantric dices and promises to have greater effect on present and future life. One of my friend who is a body builder was carried away with such kind of advertisement and purchased the product which promised him toned body figure without much practice. But after using that he actually lost the earlier personality. Nothing is better than our desi house hold medicines and remedies which are being practiced through ages.

    In India you can sell anything for a period of 10 years; it's because one can easily become a billionaire before a law implemented or function in our country. Due to this there are many thugs and black magicians sell drugs saying as miraculous powers, magical remedies etc. As there is nothing behind this, they just want to earn money with their black magic like tactics by fooling people. There are some chemicals if you apply on your hand, you will not feel any heat if burning camphor will kept on your hand. Some chemicals are invisible and used to bring bibhuti like powders without any notice. There are many things happen in India.
    However, there is some motivational topics/videos/music by hearing those a person can became mentally tranquil, loss obesity, relief from mental and physical pains, etc. which are ideal and can be put into practice with help of mentors or through online.

    If we are suffering from a disease, we will try to get rid of it in anyway possible. So, if somebody promises that they will cure the disease, people will try it out. Also, people will try the magical way only if the doctors fail to cure the disease, the magical cure is cheap etc,. reasons. But, there are some stubborn people who will try only the magical way but not consult a doctor which is their loss. For the government, displaying such ads is a small and insignificant issue and so it doesn't care.

    Let us continue learning.
