India has been reeling under the intensity of the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. Even with the availability of vaccines, people are filled with questions & concerns like 'once vaccinated, how long does it take for immunity to kick in & how long does this last.' Every individual ought to focus on maintaining a good immunity that helps the human body resist any disease. Citizens across the country are adapting to simple changes in their diets and routines to ensure physical fitness & boost immunity. The immune system plays an indispensable role in our response to infectious diseases. The immune system is the body's multi-level defense network against potentially harmful bacteria, viruses, and other organisms.
Ayurveda – the science of life, is an ancient discipline of healing sciences. Ayurveda is derived from the Sanskrit words 'Ayur,' meaning life, and 'Veda,' meaning science or knowledge. Hence loosely translated Ayurveda can be referred to as the science of life. It emphasizes building the strength of mind and body to cope with various stressors, including infection. The Ayurveda concept of immunity is classified as natural, chronobiologic, and acquired.
