 How to boost immunity & Safeguard yourself?

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 follows.

1.       Wash hands frequently with Soap and water.

2.       Sanitize your hands when ever water and soap is not available.

3.       Do not touch your face, eyes, mouth or nose with your hands.

4.       Avoid going out in crowds or gatherings.

5.       Avoid travelling.

6.       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.

1.       Drink water boiled with few Tulsi leaves instead of normal water.

2.       Take steam daily once with few tulsi leaves boiled in it or with triphala kashayam.

3.       Gargle with Triphala kashayam.

4.       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.

5.       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 very effective.

6.       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.
