A note for the pandemic times from Shreshtha Ayurveda

Updated: Mar 2

During these difficult times, I feel obliged to write to all of you with a few Ayurvedic words of wisdom. My husband, Dr.Santosh and I, continue to work and do our bit with maximum safety precautions. We are open to consultation over phone or video. The consultations maybe for follow up treatments or any other health concerns you may want attention towards. Many of you have availed consultation to understand the current virus situation better. Clarity helps us to plan better and reach some amount of equanimity.

You can reach us at or call on 08041129663 or call/whatsapp on 9900651800

I would first like to acknowledge the immense privilege which allows me and my family and most of us to stay home and stay safe in comfort.

Communicable and epidemic diseases are classified in the Charaka and Sushrutha Samhitha as Oupasargika rogas or Janapadodhwansa rogas. The revered vaidyas discuss the vitiation of Vayu, Desha, Udaka, Kala (Air, geography, water and seasons- shared by large communities) and various factors like the environmental pollution, lack of immunity, man made disasters like pollution as causes of epidemics capable of destroying nations.

I would like to list some of the Ayurvedic guidelines which can help us sail through this period.


As you know, these are the daily regimen guidelines which are simple acts but can go a long way in preventing diseases if they are done regularly. Some of them which can be useful now are listed below.<
