It’s been a long day, sitting idle at home is getting so boring. Well yes, I am self-quarantining myself due to popping up of this undesired entity in our world named “The CoronaVirus”. But being a medical practitioner it hurts me for not being able to render my services to overcome this zombie-like disease that has eventually made our earth a Zombieland.
Friends, I am Dr. Jyotiraditya, an ayurvedist. People who are not acquainted with the term Ayurvedist, let me give them clarity. An ayurvedist means a practitioner of Ayurvedic medicine.I was thinking forlong to share some information that might be helpful, at least to get equipped to put a strong show to this deadly coronavirus.
We all know the best option to fight this trespasser is to get isolated first and secondly tohave a good immunity. I am hopeful that the first part i.e. isolation is being followed by all. Now comes the second part. Alot of us know what immunity is, but for those who don’t, let’s understand it.
Immunity is a kind of self-defence mechanism of our body similar toan anti-virus software in computer that helps in countering undesired foreign entities invading our body causing harm to it.
World is going crazy now after they learned that people with good immunity can easily win this No Holds Bar matchagainst Corona virus.
Basic rule to boost immunity is to go as close to nature as possible. Nature Comprises of five basic elements namely space, earth, fire, water and air. Getting close to all these things in harmony makes our survival and existence easy. Well, let’s keep this topic for some other time. Let’s here focus on some extremely easy to use home remedy that promotes immunity. Continue to use this even after we had overcome corona virus effect as in my view we need immunity for the future as well.
