The healthcare infrastructure is overstressed. Covid numbers are rising at a breakneck pace. And over 1,000 people are dying every day.
The second wave of Covid infections has put India in a bind with the Centre and state doubling down efforts to bring the worrying situation under control.
Following this, the Delhi government has today announced a 6-day lockdown in Delhi till next Monday to curb the containment of the infections.
But one thing that this pandemic has taught us is the benefits of Ayurveda and how it helps in fighting COVID-19. Ayurveda is an ancient system of medicine which deals with the prevention, treatment, and nonrecurrence of diseases as well as the management of health.
Vikas Chawla, Founder & Director, Vedas Cure, in an exclusive interaction with HealthWire Media, said, “Since the first wave of Covid-19 when it started to spread, many people started taking ayurvedic herbs. These herbs are actually very beneficial. They are natural and do not have any side effects. Herbs like ashwagandha, giloy, salam panja, and many others help you to increase the immunity power naturally. They help in fighting a lot of other diseases.”
“When the whole world was fighting this virus during the first phase, people in India started to take ayurvedic herbs as a precautionary measure. The mortality rate in India among the Covid affected people is less than the global rate. Ayurveda has played an important role in this lower mortality rate. This is going to give a big boost to Ayurveda in the international market. Many countries have started to accept Ayurveda and ayurvedic herbs. Many ayurvedic companies in India have started to export products to other countries as well,” said Vikas Chawla.
