The Ayurvedic concept appeared and developed between 2500 and 500 BC in India. The literal meaning of Ayurveda is “science of life”. One of the main beliefs is that the food we eat affects our overall wellbeing, and can make us elated or miserable. Essentially, we can be full of energy and vitality or lethargic and run-down based on what we put into our bodies. Ayurvedic practitioners often say that their patients can concentrate better, sleep better and feel less anxious overall.

Areca Raina, an alumnus of Bhartiya Vidya Mandir, Ambphalla Jammu, where she only studied till class 2, is a young Ayurvedic doctor from Jammu. She completed the rest of her schooling from the Army school and then pursued her BMS (Bachelor of Medical Sciences) from Jammu.

“I have studied in the Vidya Bharati School from nursery till class 2. And these formation years have impacted my life deeply. I held the Indian culture so close to my heart that I choose to study Ayurvedic field of medicine”, recalled Areca.

Those who have studied this field of medicine would agree to that fact that it is no less difficult a subject to study as is allopathic. In fact, Ayurveda is more difficult. “While Allopathic doctors would suggest paracetamol for fever, an Ayurvedic doctor would give Samshamani Vati. This medicine is formulated to treat all types of fever. It helps to strengthen the body's immune system and enhance the body's ability to fight against the various bacterial and viral infections. The good thing about any Ayurvedic medicine is that it does not have any side effect”, mentioned Areca.

Areca, after completing her BMS, started to practice in private hospital in Jammu. She has treated several Covid patients. But, she started the Covid treatment from her home by treating her mother who was suffering from fever and had mild cough. One that remedy was successful, she started to offer the same treatment to the patients who used to come to her with Covid symptoms. She helped to boost immunity followed by a strength treatment through Ayurvedic antibiotics for many people.

Here are some tips shared by Areca to fight the Covid battle:

  • Although humans are social beings but it is necessary to maintain personal hygiene and social distancing
  • Wear mask whenever you are going outside your home
  • One has to be a little selfish for one’s sake. If you don’t get infected by Covid, then your family will also be safe
  • Take Vitamin C supplements, citrus fruits and chavanprash
  • Take ayurvedic medicines such as Guduchi Satva and Triphala
  • Make kadha at home and have it every day in the morning as you wake up and before going to bed
  • Black coffee or green tea can be also taken if you have cold
  • Lakshmi Vilas Ras can be taken to cure phlegm and respiratory related disorders such as cough, cold and asthma
  • Tribhuvan Kirti Ras provides immediate relief from cough, body aches, cold and fever
  • Lavangadi vati can be taken for treating upper respiratory infections like cough, congestion, cold
  • Sitopaladi churna and Talisadi Churna are very effective for whooping cough, sore throat, cold, asthma, bronchitis

With the enormous knowledge of nature based medicine, the relationship of human body constitution and function to nature and the elements of the universe that act in coordination and affect the living beings, Ayurvedic system will continue to flourish in ages still to come.
