It is high time to revisit all the learning from our grandmother's and granfatgersThe best of immunity that has apparently saved so many thousands of people in many parts of the country comes from ancient wisdom. For example, the practice of mixing turmeric with lukewarm milk and consuming a glass of it is now recommended by many Ayurveda and Siddha doctors.
This is one of the suggested remedies to boost immunity in these Covid times. Nothing is more refreshing than a juice made out of pepper, lemon, thulasi and betel leaves and a few other herbs. This is the perfect answer to keep our throats clear of any infection. It is also commonly observed that Siddha and Ayurveda treatment is found so effective at all times and the same has been successful at New Delhi where so many patients were given these medicines.
Let the Government now encourage more advanced research in Ayurveda and Siddha. We can perhaps have so many new medicines for different ailments and even if part of the knowledge that our grandmother's had advocated, so be it. The time to act is now.
When 8000 patients have been treated free of cost with Siddha medicines and not a single death has been reported, we need to probe deeper into what these herbal remedies can actually do to both patients and for perfectly normal people in terms of preventive care.
