Ayurveda, being the science of life, propagates the gifts of nature in maintaining healthy and happy living. Ayurveda’s extensive knowledge base on preventive care, derives from the concepts of “Dinacharya” - daily regimes and “Ritucharya”- seasonal regimes to maintain healthy life. It is a plant-based science. The simplicity of awareness about oneself and the harmony each individual can achieve by uplifting and maintaining his or her immunity is emphasized across Ayurveda’s classical scriptures.

Ministry of AYUSH recommends the following self-care guidelines for preventive health measures and boosting immunity with special reference to respiratory health. These are supported by Ayurvedic literature and scientific publications.

కోవిడ్ 19 వ్యాప్తి నేపథ్యంలో, ప్రపంచవ్యాప్తంగా మొత్తం మానవజాతి బాధపడుతోంది. శరీరం యొక్క సహజ రక్షణ వ్యవస్థను (రోగనిరోధక శక్తి) మెరుగుపరచడం ఒక ముఖ్యమైన పాత్ర పోషిస్తుంది.  వాంఛనీయ ఆరోగ్యాన్ని కాపాడుకోవడంలో నివారణ కోసం ఆయుష్ మంత్రిత్వ శాఖ ఈ క్రింది స్వీయ-రక్షణ మార్గదర్శకాలను సిఫారసు చేస్తుంది.  ఆరోగ్య చర్యలు మరియు శ్వాసకోశానికి ప్రత్యేక సూచనతో రోగనిరోధక శక్తిని పెంచడం ఆరోగ్యం. వీటికి ఆయుర్వేద సాహిత్యం మరియు శాస్త్రీయ ప్రచురణలు మద్దతు ఇస్తున్నాయి.
