Ayurveda’s Potential for Alleviating Long Covid Symptoms

In a world where health challenges continue to emerge, the search for holistic and natural remedies gains momentum. Ayurveda, an ancient system of medicine originating from India, has captured the attention of many seeking alternatives to conventional treatments. As the global medical community grapples with the complexities of Long Covid, Ayurveda offers a ray of hope for those seeking relief from its lingering symptoms. In this article, we delve into the fundamental principles of Ayurveda and explore how this ancient practice may provide benefits to individuals dealing with Long Covid.

Understanding Ayurveda

Ayurveda, often referred to as the “science of life,” is a holistic healthcare system that dates back over 5,000 years. Its roots are deeply embedded in the Indian subcontinent, where it has evolved into a comprehensive approach to wellness that takes into account the interconnectedness of the mind, body, and spirit. Ayurveda focuses on maintaining balance and harmony within the body to promote overall health and prevent diseases.

Central Principles of Ayurveda

Doshas: Ayurveda categorizes individuals into three primary doshas—Vata, Pitta, and Kapha—each representing different elements and qualities within the body. Long Covid symptoms often disrupt the balance of these doshas, leading to various health issues.

Diet and Lifestyle: Ayurveda emphasizes the importance of a balanced diet and lifestyle tailored to an individual’s constitution. This approach can play a crucial role in managing Long Covid symptoms, as personalized dietary choices can aid in recovery and healing.

Herbal Remedies: Ayurveda relies heavily on natural herbs and plant-based remedies to address imbalances and restore well-being. These herbs possess potential properties that might alleviate Long Covid symptoms such as fatigue, inflammation, and respiratory distress.

Benefits of Ayurveda for Long Covid
  1. Immune System Support: Long Covid can compromise the immune system, leaving individuals susceptible to infections and chronic inflammation. Ayurveda offers a range of immune-boosting herbs like Ashwagandha, Tulsi, and Amalaki that may aid in strengthening the body’s defense mechanisms.
  2. Stress and Anxiety Management: Prolonged health challenges can lead to heightened stress and anxiety. Ayurveda’s focus on mindfulness, meditation, and relaxation techniques can assist individuals in managing these psychological aspects of Long Covid.
  3. Respiratory Health: Ayurvedic practices include Pranayama (breathing exercises) that can help improve lung function and respiratory health. This could be particularly beneficial for Long Covid patients dealing with lingering breathing difficulties.
  4. Inflammation Reduction: Many Long Covid symptoms involve inflammation in various parts of the body. Ayurvedic herbs like Turmeric and Ginger are known for their anti-inflammatory properties, potentially offering relief from discomfort.
  5. Digestive Health: Gastrointestinal issues are common among Long Covid sufferers. Ayurveda’s emphasis on gut health and digestion optimization might aid in alleviating digestive concerns associated with the condition.
  6. Energy Restoration: Fatigue is a prevailing symptom of Long Covid. Ayurveda’s personalized approach to diet, lifestyle, and herbal remedies can contribute to restoring energy levels and combating exhaustion.
  7. Holistic Approach: Ayurveda doesn’t merely address the physical symptoms but also takes into account mental and emotional well-being. This holistic approach aligns with the multi-faceted nature of Long Covid recovery.

The road to recovery from Long Covid can be arduous and complex, prompting individuals to explore various avenues for relief. Ayurveda’s ancient wisdom, grounded in its holistic principles, offers a unique perspective on health that encompasses the mind, body, and spirit. While research on the application of Ayurveda to Long Covid is still in its nascent stages, the potential benefits it holds for immune support, stress management, respiratory health, inflammation reduction, and overall well-being are compelling.

It’s important to note that Ayurveda is not a substitute for conventional medical treatment. Consulting with healthcare professionals and integrating Ayurvedic practices as complementary approaches can provide a comprehensive strategy for managing Long Covid symptoms. As the medical community continues to search for effective solutions, Ayurveda stands as a beacon of hope, offering a holistic approach that respects the intricate balance between human physiology and the environment.

Ayurveda Talks with Dr. Asghar and Dr. Nezeem

Ayurveda Talks with Dr. Asghar and Dr. Nezeem

This event is an opportunity for you to get more insight into the modern practice of Ayurveda from our in-house Dr. Nezeem and our guest Dr. Asghar C.P., the founder of Ayurveda Greens Clinic & Educational Center in Azyur, India. Both doctors were born and raised in Kerala, the cradle of Ayurveda.
The talk will be moderated by two Ayurveda Greens students, Ania and Rose, who is also the owner of the resort. The intention behind the creation of this event is to share tools of wellness and bring Ayurveda closer to everyone who is open to its wisdom. The introduction of Ayurveda into a modern lifestyle begins with self-inquiry. Once we get to know ourselves, our bodies, qualities, and challenges, only then can we work on improving them. It teaches us to see everything as balanced or imbalanced and provides a vast variety of ancient tools to indicate vitiations and bring everything back into the natural state of harmony.
The talk will be held on the 2nd of August, at 4:15pm, between our regular Wednesday activities in the beautiful Ananada Room, afternoon yoga, and Singing Bowl Meditation with Kru Dao. For this Wednesday, for the 3pm Yoga session, from all our wonderful yoga teachers we choose Sagar to teach the original Hatha Yoga style. Sagar is Mangosteen’s in-house Yoga teacher from Rishikesh, the capital of Yoga, and Mangosteen’s Wellness Coordinator.

We are dynamic human beings, and we require a multitude of modalities.

Kirstin’s work supports people to find balance and increase vitality in their lives. This path is for those who have an inner knowing that there is more to life, that we have an untapped potential and when we learn how to access this, we can upgrade life and live out our dreams.

We have done Ayurveda all over the world, but this was by far the best combination. Indian style treatments in a nice, cozy, family-style resort, secluded and tranquil, but bustling Phuket outside around the corner. The beaches and yes, the shopping and night markets.
We spent a wonderful two weeks at the Mangosteen, and it could not have been better. A big thank you to all the team: helpful, efficient, and friendly. If you are looking for Ayurveda, Yoga or both, the Mangosteen is definitely a place to consider. We will come back- for sure!
