'Ayurveda can effectively counter Swine Flu'


In a press release from his ashram, senior ayurvedic doctors at Sri Sri Ayurveda centre Dr Manikantan and Dr Nisha Manikantan said, “Swine flu invades the body because of a breakdown in immunity. And Ayurveda offers simple & effective remedies to boost immunity & build resistance.

Tea made from Laxmi Taru (botanical name: Simarouba) leaves, Tulsi, Amlaand Amrut (Giloy) acts as an immunity enhancer. Alternatively & additionally, Ginger and Turmeric (haldi) powder mixed with either lime juice or honey can also be taken twice a day.” “To counter air-borne swine flu viruses, Sambarani dhoop (loban stems) should be burnt in the house twice a day. Sambarani is a very potent atmospheric steriliser,” the doctors added.

However, our mind also plays an important role in our immunity. Whenever we panic and have fear, our immunity level goes down. Practices like pranayama and meditation play a vital role in reducing panic / fear and keeping ourselves calm, informed Sri Sri Ravishankar.
