Whether it be the rich or the poor, the strong or weak, and even the people from different countries belonging to different races all of them are in unrest. The COVID pandemic has created worldwide panic and has caused so many deaths all over the world. This global threat to humanity has many people questioning many things not to mention the number of rumours spreading around like wildfire. This panic has people questioning many things which include all the existing medicines and therapies. People are trying to figure out what can help beat or at least try to minimize the effects of the Coronavirus. But people in this country are forgetting the very root of medics which has led to the inventions of many more medicines henceforth. Ayurveda has always been something that has nurtured the people of this country ever since its inception. Ayurveda is treating various ailments only through natural means. It ensures that the treatment remains as organic as possible. Even though the artificially made medicines do work but these can cause many side effects due to the presence of chemicals. But the Ayurveda remedies are only made with plants, something that is the creation of the earth itself hence it has little to no side effects. People who truly believe in the effectiveness of Ayurveda to fight corona are the staff at the Anjum Khanna clinic.

Question - How can something as old of a process as Ayurveda can heal or help fight against something like COVID-19? Answer - Some of you may have heard that this virus is very different from the other viruses that have created a pandemic before. It’s different in the way it spreads, it’s different in strength, and it’s different in its persistency and after-effects. This was something that confused a lot of modern-day scientists and doctors all over the world. It took them so long to figure out how does the virus even spread. Although Ayurveda is not an antidote to the virus it can help fight off the germs and increase metabolism naturally.

However, if you can come to Anjum Khanna clinic while maintaining all the safety measures and protocols then you will be treated with the most well-known detoxification cycle of Ayurved called Panchkarma. This treatment usually incorporates five common strategies (that’s why its name has the word “Panch” which is five in Sanskrit) for purgation or disposal, seriously detoxifying the body while adjusting the three “Doshas” – Vatta, Pitta, and Kapha. It’s done with the assistance of cured oils. Question - What are the benefits of Panchkarma?

Don’t drink iced beverages or eat yogurt, cheese, and ice-cream. Make sure to do yoga (especially Surya Namaskar) daily to maintain health and metabolism. All though the world is in shambles we should keep our calm and indulge in Ayurveda as much as we can to keep ourselves from getting infected. Stay safe and healthy.
