CASE STUDY

ORIGINAL DESCRIPTION IN PATIENT’S OWN WORDS

The River Narmada is the most important river of the state of Madhya Pradesh. The Narmada basin lies between longitude East 72º32’ to 81º45’ and the latitude North 21º20’ to 28º45’. It is the only non snow fed perennial river in India. Narmada River water is mainly used for irrigation, drinking, fishery, generation of electricity and domestic purposes. Some physical-chemical parameters were studied to determine the quality of its water. Pollution is the biggest problem nowadays, it affects the atmosphere, soil and our water resources.

This experiment demonstrates the effect of Homa Therapy – based on the ancient science of Vedas which offers solutions to reduce the pollution in our environment and of the water recourses. These are some preliminary studies about the efficacy of the Homa method, comparing the river water in 4 different sampling sites (S1 – S4) of the Narmada river region.
Water samples were collected on monthly intervals in clean polythene containers and preserved according to standard method (APHA 2002) and brought to the laboratory for various physical-chemical analysis.
