The human body is constantly under attack from pathogens, whether they are viruses, bacteria, or other microorganisms. Our immune system protects us from these invaders, and it is important to keep it functioning properly. Coronavirus is one of the most common causes of acute lower respiratory infection. To prevent Coronavirus, we need to strengthen our immune system by following the right food habits and taking the right medication.

Ayurveda is a safe and effective system of medicine. It takes into account the whole person, not just the symptoms of the disease. It is a safe and effective way to treat and prevent this disease. However, it is important to consult with a qualified practitioner to ensure that the remedies are appropriate for you.

Here are the top 6 ways to keep your immune system healthy-

  1. A Healthy Diet

As per Ayurveda, what we eat is what we become. Foods like yogurt, cheese, and sauerkraut increase your body’s microbial immunity and hence, keep you healthy. Ingredients like coriander seeds, black pepper, ginger, garlic, lemons, oranges, strawberries, etc. should be incorporated into your regular diet. Always eat properly cooked food. 

On the other hand, drinking or eating cold foods, and heavy or fried foods reduces your digestive fire, which in turn negatively impacts your overall health. Go for more broths and soups.

The way you eat can also impact your weight. Eating a healthy diet is good for maintaining a healthy weight. And, eating an unhealthy diet leads to weight gain.
