Ayurveda view point over COVID-19:
Ayurveda has mentioned a condition similar to COVID-19 hundred years back with the name Janapadodhwamsa vikara (Epidemic disease). The main reason behind is vitiation of the four major elements such as air, water, land and seasons over the period of time. This vitiation leads to stimulation of diseases among large population destroying human habitations. Ayurveda science believes that as long as our Agni (Digestive fire) is strong, illness will not happen. This concept is directly related to our immunity (oja) which is formed by the biotransformation of dhatus (body tissues) with the help of Agni acting upon the food we eat. The end product or essence of all dhatus is ojas (immunity).
