In the fight against Covid 19 pandemic in Sri Lanka, the wisdom of Ayurveda and its remedies to enhance the immunity has been recognized by the government of Sri Lanka.
The wisdom of Ayurveda, ‘Sushruta Samhita’ written in 1200 BC- 600 BC clearly explains how a disease can be contagious and also how it can be prevented. Ayurveda focuses on preventing diseases as much as curative remedial procedures and it states that immunity, physical & mental strength and hygienic practices are the paramount means to prevent a disease from spreading and becoming contagious.
