Covid-19 - An Ayurvedic Observation by Dr. Rama Prasad

Dear Friends
I hope you are keeping as well as you can during these uncertain times. 

I'd like to share with you Rama Prasad's article on Covid-19 and on how to have 'super' immunity. You'll also find out why Rama thinks immunity works just like our tax system!

What is a virus? 

Virus is seen as a mistake in evolution! Is virus alive? Yes. Is it dead? Yes! Only when it enters a living cell, virus comes to life. A rare phenomenon! When it's outside a cell, the virus is not alive anymore.

It doesn't breathe, eat, or drink - will wait for a week, live cell to be available for a long time. Virus is just a DNA or RNA with a simple envelope - a nucleic acid inside a protein bag. A simple as that. Two types - DNA virus and RNA virus. All life forms have a genetic material DNA - de oxy ribonucleic acid, that are in our chromosomes in each of our cells. RNA (ribonucleic acid) produces protein based on the instructions of our DNA. This is the structure of the virus we are talking about. Enters our body via nasal or oral pathway.

When meets a live cell, it wakes up, jumps onto it, enters the cell, releases its DNA into the cell, suppresses our cell DNA, controls our cell entirely, forcing the cell to make a protein shells, our cell RNA follows the order using the amino acids that is stored for emergency, once the protein shells are ready, the virus DNA multiplies and occupies all protein shells, breaks our cells and get out of it and perform the same exercise with our other cells. This, obviously, debilitates our body. If we have enough immunity or vitality, our body will try to chase them by producing its own antibodies. Based on our immunity the defence and attack can be successful or a failure.

How do we deal with a virus?

Boost our immunity. There are two ways of doing it. First one is a vaccine. This is limited to a disease. We need a vaccine for each microbe. Second one is super immunity - this is by boosting the entire body with sufficient nutrients and supreme cleanliness. When our body is well nourished and totally clean, microbes won't show any interest in us. No infection. This is applicable to almost 99% of the situation.

What is Immunity?

Immunity works just like our tax system! Let us see. We work, make money, a part is paid as tax, which comes back to us as infrastructure (local hospitals, schools, bus waiting shed etc.), emergency services (ambulance, fire etc.), protection (police, navy, or army) and so on. The more people pay more tax, that suburb is seen as a rich suburb - they get more infrastructure etc as mentioned above. The less people pay less tax - it's a poor suburb. They get less!

When our body works as it's designed to work, every cell produces plenty of energy, a part of which is allocated for defence, protection and emergency. When it doesn't work as per the 'user's manual' we produce less energy and we are open for attack, can't deal with emergencies easily or effectively.

How do we get our body to work optimally?

Let me try to simplify this. Of course, these are all general. You must talk to your local Ayurveda practitioner to tailor it for you. Our activities from 9pm to 9am are vital. What are those activities:

Early to bed - by 10 pm you must be fast asleep. This ensures that our body gets repaired and renovated
       - every corner is clean, tidy and repaired.
        
Early to wake p so that you can get some full body exercise. A variety of activities for the entire mind- 
        body is vital for around 30-45 minutes so that you can sweat profusely for 20-30 minutes. 
        That's all you need. 
        
A large, low carb breakfast with some protein in it. This ensures you eat most of what you need for the 
        day early in the morning.
