Many Ayurveda practices for coronavirus can build immunity against coronavirus

Ayurveda is a field of alternative medicine that originated in India. The medicines and treatments used in this field are not chemistry-based science. Ayurveda is a mixture of ecology, geology, biology, botany, and many other modern sciences. It doesn’t focus on disease but personalized medicine triggers the body’s own healing system to fight against the disease. Recently Dr. Bhaswati Battacharya who is a Clinical Assistant Professor of Medicine at Weill Cornell Medicine College in New York unveiled how following some Ayurveda practices can build high immunity against coronavirus. 

According to Dr. Bhattacharya by practicing Ayurveda, we approach a particular disease from the perspective of air, land, water, and time. In ancient classical medical texts, this is discussed in a chapter on epidemics known as janapada-uddhvansa. A survivor ‘s everyday lifestyle involves cleaning the air, correctly using clean water, cleansing the land, and time-consciousness. 

Air cleaning

Bhattacharya further said air purification includes fumigation, the use of homam flames, daily diyas, or burning of any herbal plants, especially those with anti-viral or poisonous properties. Burning of ajwain with neem, haldi, garlic, and onion peels and coconut husk in a dhoopana. The opening of doors and windows in the morning causes fresh air to remove condensed particles.

Body cleaning 

In India, there are many rules regarding washing hands, feet, and face at certain times of the day and after activities such as cooking, before eating, and after using the toilet. These practices are known as jutha, etho, ushta, enjalu, eccam, aintha and engili in many vernacular languages.

Cleansing the land and time-consciousness

Maintaining the land clean around our homes includes removing inorganic waste, planting trees, leaving birds with water and food, and actively ensuring that space regularly breathes clean air. Time awareness is developed through regular meditation, yoga, and spending five to ten minutes with yourself in quiet and calm gratitude. This is very important for people who are not mentally strong.

Food And Medicines

But along with these lifestyle changes, focusing on food (ahara) and medicines for epidemics is also important. In Ayurveda, one of the most important advice during the times of epidemics is to eat healthy and simple foods and keep our guts clean to prevent illness. It is recommended that you eat vegetables, whole grains, and pulses, and use less ingredients. Adding raisins (draksha), coriander (dhanya) leaves, prunes, spinach (saag), palak and dark green leafy vegetables to the diet helps move down and out contents of the intestine. Consider taking 1 tsp of Triphala with hot water at night can be a great remedy for gut-cleaning. If you need further help, please contact an Ayurvedic doctor. You can take 1 tsp of dashmul powder at night with 1 tsp of psyllium husk and hot water. The key aim is to regulate the working of intestines everyday and clean the gut.

Keeping the respiratory tract clean is one of the most crucial things to do during coronavirus. Consuming decoctions or bitter kadhas during sunrise and sunset can clean the nasal passages by stimulating bitter taste buds that turn on the airway’s immune machinery. Different Ayurvedic formulations such as Soma Asava, Yashi Churna, Agasthya Haritaki Rasayan, Pushkarmoola asava, Vasa Avaleha, and Chitraka Haritaki Avaleha exist for more common symptoms, such as lower airway breathing difficulty, middle airway asthma, or upper airway. Guduchi / giloy (Tinospora cordifolia) is the best plant in this pandemic to improve immunity and can be found in many forms.
