Ayurveda helps to boost immunity against COVID-19. Ayurvedic herbs such as Tulsi, Cinnamon, Black pepper, Shunthi (dry ginger), and Raisins and regular yoga are potent aids to increase the body’s immunity against harmful viruses.
The AYUSH ministry’s protocol outlined measures to build a robust immune system, and it included: consuming warm water, practising yogasana, pranayama and meditation for 30 minutes every day.
It also advised usage of turmeric, cumin, coriander and garlic in cooking, besides taking 10 gm of chyavanprash in the morning. Jaggery, fresh lemon juice too can be helpful in the fight against Covid-19.
Ayush Ministry has also recommended 150 ml hot milk with half a teaspoon of turmeric powder once or twice a day, application of sesame oil/coconut oil or ghee in both the nostrils in the morning and evening.
