Good hygiene is crucial       

“Strengthen your body’s immune system”, this seems to be the buzzwords nowadays. Health, fitness and yoga experts the world over are emphasizing the importance of strengthening the body’s immune system as a preventive measure. As we, all know so far, there is no cure for coronavirus. Thus, the need for maintaining social distancing and the importance of good hygiene is crucial. Nevertheless, along with external defense, strengthening the body from the inside is equally important.

Embrace a disciplined lifestyle

To achieve good health and a strong immune system, we cannot deny the role of regular and disciplined ‘dinacharya’, daily routine. As seen, this virus is harming those who are not healthy in their bodies and suffering from diseases like hypertension, diabetes, cancer, etc. All these diseases are the result of poor eating habits, erratic lifestyle, disorderly eating habits, and poor sleep patterns.

Use Ayurvedic measures as a shield

These problems point to the weak immune system only. Recently, the Ministry of AYUSH Government of India has described the usefulness of the ancient Ayurvedic measures for strengthening immunity. Since ancient times, we are using these measures as a protective shield from various diseases in our country. Moreover, today, once again, in this difficult time too, the importance of using these Ayurveda measures is vital. 

Trust Authentic information
