Ayurvedic remedies for Corona virus

Ayurvedic remedies for Corona virus


If you are infected by Coronavirus and insist on Ayurvedic medicine, here is your best bet: Find the most potent Ayurvedic poison you can get your hands on and drink copious amounts of it. That way, you will hopefully die before infecting many others.

It is shocking to see some answers suggest avoiding red meat and inhaling aromas to treat a serious illness. I am very glad that the virus broke out in China — if it happened in India, advice like this would have ended up infecting and killing a lot more people.

Ayurvedic medicine is a museum piece from another millennium. It is protomedicine[1] from the days we knew scant about the biology or the underlying chemistry of health and disease. It does not even accept germ theory! Instead, Ayurveda believes that diseases which we have clearly proven to arise from microorganisms are caused due to the imbalance of doshas. Taking its help to counter an epidemic caused by a newly mutated virus is beyond suicidal.

And instead of accepting that Ayurveda has no tools to manage such a situation, there are Ayurvedic “doctors” attempting to become famous claiming that they can treat the disease — without even seeing a single patient! I don’t know how these people sleep at night.

I really hope that Indians understand the harms of opting for unproven therapies when real medicine exists. And instead of regulating such systems and making sure that they don’t take the lives of gullible people, India promotes them with a ministry!


What are the general preventive tips?

There is no currently any vaccine available to prevent Coronavirus (COVID-19) so the best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to the virus,

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.

  • Stay home when you are sick.

  • Cover your mouth while sneezing or coughing with a tissue, them remember to throw it in a dustbin.

  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating and after blowing your nose.

As people are rushing more to keep themselves protected and secured, Ayurveda has a perfect solution for those individuals. Ayurveda practitioners or Doctors have stressed that Ayurvedic herbs such as Giloy, Amla, neem are considered to be helpful in boosting the immune system and thus fights against this deadly virus.

An important point to Remember – Do not panic yourself. While this outburst is a serious public health issue but the majority of them infected with Coronavirus are not seriously ill, and only a very small percentage of the population requires intensive care.

Here are some of the tips for improving your immune system,

  • Gargle with warm or saltwater – ½ tsp of Himalayan or sea salt is added to 8 oz of warm water. Gargling with salt water clears bacteria or germs present in your gut. You can use these saltwater rinses as a preventive measure.

  • Other Ayurvedic Supplements – If you found Tulsi tea is not your cup of tea, then you can go for Ashwagandha and Turmeric. Turmeric has healing and antimicrobial properties and Ashwagandha calms your nervous system that prevents the body from the attack of infections. It is also prescribed that 2-3 drops of sesame oil in nostrils will lubricate the throat and nasal passages, but also strengthens the inner mucus membranes.

What a sad, sad state of affairs.

Please, please see a real doctor if you suspect that you are suffering from such a serious epidemic. Please do not put your own life and the lives of others under risk.

I would have given the same advice for homeopathy. But then, “homeopathic poison” will be sugar pills and water, just like homeopathic anything else. That does not seem to stop homeopaths from suggesting homeopathic treatment for Coronavirus though.
