While countries like Italy, USA, Spain, Germany etc are struggling to save COVID 19 patients till date, there is no medicine or vaccine for this viral disease. The World Health Organisation (WHO) declared COVID-19 a pandemic last week and added that Europe was now the “epicentre” of the virus.

Medical Researchers across the world are searching for a cure for the COVID 19 pandemic.

Ok, these are known to all.

But is there any medicine for COVD19 in Ayurveda? what do you think about the system of medicine with historic roots in India?

The answer is NO, there is no proven medicine in Ayurveda against COVID 19.


Here are some news from India

In an advisory note to the state, Ministry of Ayurveda, Yoga & Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and Homoeopathy or AYUSH mentioned Ayurveda has "worked towards enhancing the immunity against hosts of infections. They suggest the use of sesame oil in the nose, and Tulsi, ginger, Guduchi (Tinospora Cordifolia) and Turmeric in the diet.

Other specific measures advised by the ministry include following respiratory etiquette, washing of hands, practising yoga and pranayama and avoiding contact with unwell people, cold and frozen food and cold breeze.

Yoga guru Ramdev said in his recent video "To fight Covid-19, Giloy/Guduchi (Tinospora Cordifolia)
and Tulasi can be helpful. If someone has symptoms of coronavirus, consuming 'kadha' (decoction) of giloy and Tulasi with black pepper, turmeric and ginger will boost immunity and kill all kinds of viruses."

Ramdev also added that people should do pranayama like Kapalabhati and Anulom Vilom to increase immunity. It will work best to protect children from the virus, according to the yoga guru.
The yoga guru did not provide any evidence for his claim

SEXandHEalth will definitely recommend Turmeric, Tulsi, Guduchi & Yoga - Pranayama Practices for enhancing overall health and immunity but not as against COVID19.  Please follow the guidelines of WHO
