The cases of the covid 19 are increasing day by day. In India, first case of Covid 19 was observed in Jan 2019. The approach of modern medicine is curable for covid 19, while the approach of Ayurveda and Yoga is preventive and prophylactic. For any disease, prevention is better than cure, and Nidana Parivarjana is the best option for prevention according to Ayurveda. But along with this, one should boost his or her immunity or we can say Vyadhikshamatva in Ayurveda,which can be achieved by state of Dhatusamyata.To maintain Vyadhikshamatava or immunity, one should follow daily Dinacharya regimen mentioned in Ayurvedic classics, use of Ayurvedic preparation and practice of pranayam. Daily routine practices of Dinacharya like Waking up in Brahmamuhurta, Daily practice of Abhyanga and application of Anu Taila Nasya which play an important role in maintaining the health of an individual. The Ayurvedic Preparations like Amalaki,Guduchi, Aashwagandha, Shatavari, Makardhwaja and contents of Chayawanprash, all these come under Rasayan dravyas. Rasayan dravyas not only promote the growth and development of the body, but also play an important role in increasing the immunity of the body which leads to the resistance of virus entry into the body.
