The process of treatment with Ayurveda might be slow, but its aim is more towards promoting good health.
Ayurveda helps in controlling & regulating the three primary energies of our body ‘Vata, Pitta & Kapha.
Ayurveda is a healthcare tradition which works more towards boosting immunity in the body. And, having a strong immunity means the body can fight against all kinds of diseases, whether internal or external.
In Ayurveda, immunity means Ojas & to increase Ojas in the body one has to resort to various Ayurvedic herbs & a well-balanced lifestyle which can help in boosting the same.
Founder of Kudrati Ayurved Health Center, Mohamad Yusuf N Shaikh shares a few Ayurvedic herbs that help us in achieving significant levels of Ojas in our body.
- Ginger – It increases warmth in our body & flushes out toxins from our organs & is packed with immunity increasing benefits.
- Garlic – It is a natural antioxidant that protects the body from bacteria, viruses or other infections. It increases immunity levels because it is highly anti-fungal & antiseptic as well.
- Amba Haldi – It is nothing but raw turmeric found mostly in monsoons. It purifies the bloodstreams & removes all kinds of toxins hence increasing immunity.
- Ashwagandha – This herb is full of amino acids, lipids, peptides, bases of nucleic acids & other biologically active substances that reduces stress, lowers cholesterol & blood sugar levels. It is one of the most potent herbs in boosting immunity levels.
There are other herbs as well that can trigger the immunity levels in our bodies like Holy basil, Triphala & Amla. These can be used in the form of tonics & teas for consumption.
