There is a book called on Ayurveda called Charaka Samhita, there is a chapter called “Janapada Dvamsa Vyadhi”, which refers to worldwide pandemics, where Chakra says that this is a great opportunity to be at home right now.

So long, from years ago we are following our Dincharya means daily routine. Like, wake up early in the morning, brushing our teeth, scraping the tongue, gargling with hot water. Regularly having chai made of Tulsi(holy basil), mint, cinnamon, and cardamom as energy boosters.

For daily routine, after having a glass of warm water, we usually do Pranayam. It includes the package of eight exercises namely Bhastrika, Kapala Bhati, Anuloma Viloma, Brahmari, Utjayi, Urgent, and finally Sheetali and Sheetkari. After performing this energetic package, we can strengthen our immune system along with the respiratory system and pranavaha srotas. Our lymphatic system (Rasa vaha srotas) will get cleansed which leads to a balance of Ojas means immunity and strength, Tejas(digestion) and prana i.e. vital life force.

There are some simple herbal remedies that Charaka had already mentioned. Charaka mentioned that we should take sitopaladi,abhrak bhasma, talisadi and mahasudarshan churna. The mentioned above should be taken 1/2 teaspoon twice a day including morning and evening.even you can do a thing, just put the pinch of talisadi or sitopaldi in chai if you felt tired. It will give a different aroma to tea.

By this way, with the help of Pranayama, we can clean our prana vaha srotas which will give us a boosting power so that we can combat the virus. Other we can do yogasana including camel pose, cow pose, boat pose, cobra pose, locust, bridge pose, lion pose and lotus. If you are not able to perform, you can do Surya Namaskar.
