How to boost immunity & Safeguard
As per Ayurveda, first and fore most thing
that should be taken care to prevent any infection or disease is:
- Preventing the causative factor
of the disease.
- Increasing the immunity of our
body so that we are not prone to any infection or disease.
As COVID-19 is a pandemic disease, first
of all, the causative factor has to be avoided. Things to be taken care are as
Wash hands frequently with Soap
Sanitize your hands when ever
water and soap is not available.
Do not touch your face, eyes,
mouth or nose with your hands.
Avoid going out in crowds or
Eat healthy food. Avoid stale
and road side food which makes you more prone to infection.
Prevention of corona Virus may become
easier when our immunity is strong enough to fight against the virus. As it is
already pandemic, below are the few steps that care be taken care to boost your
immunity against it.
Drink water boiled with few
Tulsi leaves instead of normal water.
Take steam daily once with few
tulsi leaves boiled in it or with triphala kashayam.
Gargle with Triphala kashayam.
Taking a cup of herbal tea
(Aarogya tea) every 3 to 4 hours or at-least twice a day, or fill it in a flask
and keep on sipping it hot throughout the day may work wonders.
Turmeric with black pepper
capsule – Twice a day.
As Turmeric is a known
anti-bacterial, anti- fungal and anti- viral herb since ages. Curcumin is the
active principle in turmeric which fights against infection. So in such
pandemic cases, rather than using whole turmeric, the active principle will be
Chyawanprasham – Twice a day
with Haridrakhandam & Guduchi Satwa (giloy Satwa)
§ Chyanprasham is made with Amla and other herbs. Amla contains high
amount of Vitamin C, which prevent against infections & flu.
§ Haridrakhandam – again the main ingredient is turmeric.
§ Guduchi Satwa – The other name for it is Amrut the name itself
explains its functions in the body.
Ayurveda always gives more
importance to Prevention than Cure. So rather than waiting for a disease to
become pandemic and then affect us, it is always better to follow the Ayurvedic
guidelines of Ritucharya and Pancha karma which always keeps our body
detoxified and keeps it’s immunity at its best.
