5 ways to increase your Immunity against Coronavirus

July 29, 2020, The Liberacy:- Immunity is your real shield against Covid-19 coronavirus. With over 15 million people infected with COVID-19 coronavirus, medical infrastructure working over its capacity, and the police busy with sealing the containment zones and maintaining the curfew, India still has a long road ahead to be declared corona-free.  Although the government is trying to provide free treatment to the patients who have tested positive as declared by the Maharashtra Government,  it is scary for some of us to even think if we can afford the treatment.

Scientists are arguing that the possibilities of one’s contracting the virus or recovering from it depends highly on the strength of his/her immunity system. Pertaining to this claim we have many pharmaceutical and lifestyle companies coming up with tablets and drinks that promises better immunity. While some products might be good other companies have just found out a tactic to increase their sales while climbing on the fears of the citizens.
Should we just consume all these products claiming that they can protect you against the virus? Or can we try a few home remedies right from our grandmother’s kitchen?

1. Kadha

It is a drink brewed with various hot spices.  This drink not only increases our body temperature but also helps to elevate our immunity.

What do you need?

  • 8-9 leaves (with some twigs) of Indian Basil (Tulsi).
  • 1 Tsp of minced ginger.
  • 1-2 whole cinnamon.
  • 4-5 cloves.
  • 3 black paper corn, crushed or whole.
  • 2-3 cardamom pods.
  • Jaggery (can use honey as well).
  • A tsp of lemon juice (if you wish).
  • 2 cups of water.

Just boil all these ingredients for a good 5-10 minutes and have it while it’s hot. A natural energy booster, expectorant, immunity builder, and all the ingredients which are most probably there in your kitchen.

2. Turmeric Milk.

It is a common drink from an Indian household. While Turmeric is the king of spices,  it has one of the most potent compound curcumin which is scientifically proven to have many health benefits. One of which is that it has anti-inflammatory properties that aid in treating many respiratory infections. Simply boil half a teaspoon of turmeric in a cupful of milk, add minced ginger, and a sweetener if you wish.  If you are lactose intolerant or do not want to use milk, you can switch milk with water.

3. Ginger Tea.

Ginger has been known for strengthening our immunity since ancient times. So it was unjustified if we left it out of the list. Take an inch of raw ginger, smash it well. Boil it in two cups of water. Add a dash of lemon, sweetener if you please so.

4. Taking cold showers.

Scientific studies have discovered that cold showers help increase your immunity. It does increase the number of white blood cells which is responsible to fight off the antibodies entering the system. Taking cold showers stimulates your immune system and then gradually increase it. It is like an exercise for your immune system.  It is not recommended if you already sick. You can start by decreasing the temperature of your bathe slowly and gradually.

5. Healthy diet and exercise.

Nothing helps your body better than eating whole grain, fresh food. Green vegetables, beetroots, carrots, bitter- gourd (karela), are all good for your body. Just wash your vegetables thoroughly before use, do not overcook it as that decreases the nutrition value of the food you consume.

Exercising helps your body to flush out toxins in the form of sweat. It also promotes healthy circulation of the fluids in your body which is good at the cellular level. Simple changes in one’s lifestyle can a long way. Surviving the pandemic might just trigger you to start taking care of your health and we hope that stays as long as you live on this planet.
