Ayurveda is one of the ancient methods of medication which is being practiced for ages in India. During this ongoing Covid crisis, we are suffering from various medication and other facilities. At this time when we have a shortage of medicines and even hospitals and doctors, Ayurveda can play a crucial role in medication.

  • Ayurveda during Covid-19

Covid-19 an outbreak that shock the whole world and it is costing the lives of uncountable people. During this situation when people are not allowed to move out of the house as rush and crowd are considered as common factors for the spread of Covid-19. To deal with this situation one needs to have strong immunity, which one cannot gain within one or two days by taking multivitamins. Ayurveda recommends following a healthy daily routine which includes waking up early i.e, 7 am, brush your teeth, scrape your tongue, gargle with saline water, drink warm water with a pinch of turmeric, black pepper and honey. Exercise at least 45 minutes which should include breathing exercise/ Pranayam and Yogasans/ workout.

To keep ourselves healthy we need to keep our Agni/ Digestive fire strong so that our body flushes out toxins/ viruses and stops them from entering our body, to maintain this keep sipping your herbal teas. Constipation is one more hindrance in flushing toxins out of your body so, avoid all junk and processed food.

  • Ayurvedic supplements/ home remedies to boost immunity

As suggested and recommended by doctors these days we should keep practising home remedies to boost immunity. Some of the basic Ayurvedic supplements which one can take to boost immunity are Chyavanprash for all age groups, Turmeric milk, Herbal tea with ginger, Cinnamon, Black pepper, Tulsi, Giloy & Mulethi decoction. All these supplements are almost easily available in our homes and they can prove to be helpful to boost your health and immunity.

To overcome weakness due to covid eat balanced diet especially rich in protein, iron and antioxidants like Vitamin A, Vitamin C & Vitamin D. Eat freshly prepared and warm food.  Eat whole grains (Jowar, Chana/Gram, Quinoa flour) green leafy Vegetables, Pulses, Eggs & Paneer. Nuts, mixed seeds & sprouts can be used as snacks for the day. Cow’s ghee is a good source of vitamin D so take 1 to 2 tsp cow ghee empty stomach to start your day and end your day with a pinch of turmeric in warm milk.
