COVID-19

Rejuvenation after Recovery: The Ayurveda Way   Dealing with a less known type of disease and that too a pandemic is indeed difficult. It is a truth that Covid -19 has affected human lives in a clumsy, uncomfortable way. But the good news is, the majority can recover pretty quickly without any complications if proper care and attention are given right from the beginning. Testing negative for Covid-19 is not the end of the recovery phase. It marks the beginning of a post-covid rejuvenation period when the body and the mind heal gradually and get back to normalcy.    Epidemics and pandemics are explained in Ayurveda as “Janapadodwamsa”. A large population, irrespective of their Bala (strength), diet, behavior, and psychological state, is affected by the same disease, at the same time, which may destroy the community, is called ‘Janapadodhwamsa’. Covid-19 pandemic fits this category and has already affected a huge part of the population worldwide.    The Covid-19 virus affects people differently. It could be asymptomatic or more often present with varied symptoms ranging from mild to moderate and severe. Often people complain of persistent fatigue, respiratory distress, body pain, loss of taste, smell, and poor appetite for weeks after the infection. The occurrence of allied medical conditions like skin diseases is also not uncommon these days. Irrespective of the strength with which the virus affected your body, a holistic natural, and systematic approach is essential to regain the lost strength and immunity.   Covid-19 due to the peculiarity of the symptoms often involves all the three doshas with specific Kapha dosha aggravation. Most common symptoms such as fever, loss of taste, loss of appetite, extreme lethargy, and upper respiratory discomfort point to the diminution of the first formed dhatu after digestion - Rasa dhatu. Rasa dhatu kshaya (diminution) along with the aggravation of Kapha can further affect the Agni (biological fire) and impact the entire metabolism of the body. The presence of Ama (toxic outcome of improper digestion) accumulated in the body due to the ongoing disease process can significantly influence the general body’s immunity and strength.   Ayurveda always approaches in a preventive, curative, and rehabilitative approach in any kind of illness*. In covid-19 as well, a systematic outlook to restore the lost strength and immunity by balancing the doshas and stabilizing the dhatu formation is what Ayurveda adopts. A diet involving Ayurveda herbs and spices and various lifestyle modalities that gradually improve the strength and stamina of

It is like watching a science fiction serial☣️, one episode lasts 24 hours since end December still continuing novel coronavirus covid-19 not on television screen but in real life. In December 2019 the Chinese authorities notified the rest of the worls that a virus was spreading through their communities. In the following months it spread to other countries with cases doubling within days. This virus was similar to the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) and subsequently named Coronavirus 2 or COVID 19. What is a virus and why is COVID 19 a bigger deal than SARS or Seasonal flu virus? It has to do with RNA sequencing, ie. Genetics. Seasonal flu is an all human virus. The DNA/RNA chains that make up the virus are recognised by the human immune system. This means that human body has some immunity to it before it comes around each year. Immunity is acquired in two ways; through exposure to a virus or by getting a flu shot. In contrast to SARS virus, COVID 19 viruses come from animals. These viruses usually transfer only from animal to animal (pigs in the case of H1N1 and birds in the case of Spanish flu.) But once, one of the animal viruses mutates and starts to transfer from animals to humans, it becomes problematic – because we have no natural or acquired immunity. The RNA sequencing of the genes inside the is not human, and the human immune system does not recognise it. So we cannot fight it off. The mutation sometimes allows transfer from animal to human. This mutation might take years to happen; usually it happens from an infected animal to a human. When this final happens we have a new contagion phase. How contagious or how deadly is the new contagion can be depends on the fashion of the new virus. H1N1 was deadly, but not as deadly as the Spanish flu. Its RNA was slower to mutate and it attacked its host differently. In December 2019 came the Coronavirus – nobody knows how long it existed in animals only; but one day at an animal market in Wuhan, China, it mutated and made a jump from animal to people. To start with, only animals could give it to people; but in just two weeks it mutated again and gained ability to jump from human to human. Scientists call this quick ability “Slippery”🧼. COVID 19 not being a “human” virus

Viruses have a fascinating evolution: they are inanimate complex organic matter that have perfected the art of surviving without actually living, hijacking a living organism to create millions of copies of itself. Today the world seems to have come to a screeching halt i covid19 n front of one such virus: a small packet of genetic material, one-tenth the width of our eyelash, COVID-19, which has been declared a global pandemic by WHO. The Spread of COVID-19   In the current era of globalisation, humans, animals, and food are moving around frequently and more easily than ever before. This intercontinental flow of goods, information, and people pose a great threat of spreading infections across the globe within a few days and it becomes difficult to contain it within specific geographical areas. One example is malaria: twenty years ago, only 20% of the world population was living in areas where malaria was endemic, and now the numbers have risen to 40%. While in the past, it took months or years for a pandemic to spread, it is now only a matter of a few days because of more interaction among people of different races and cultures. Just look at the present scenario: what started as few unusual cases of pneumonia in Wuhan, has now spread to 213 countries, killing more than 652,600 people. The COVID-19 probably originated in bats, then jumping onto an intermediate host which then ultimately infected humans. This is not the first time that a virus has jumped from animals to humans. SARS, MERS are other examples of infections previously unknown to humans which are speculated to have a zoonotic origin.   The solution? As medical science is constantly progressing, we have developed vaccines for a variety of deadly illnesses like smallpox, but because disease-causing organisms are evolving at a fast rate, it becomes difficult to provide immunity against many diseases. There is a huge surge in new diseases along with the re-emergence of old infectious diseases. According to the 2007 report of WHO, infectious diseases are emerging at an alarming rate. Cross-species transmission of unknown strains of viruses has led to a host of new infections unknown to us, like the first major epidemic of the 21st century: SARS. Coronaviruses were previously mostly known for causing the common cold, but SARS became the game-changer: and a deadly coronavirus with pandemic potential was discovered. This also opened gates to a variety of studies in
