In the present day scenario, health is the most important factor in everyone’s life. It took this pandemic to put a spotlight on the importance of Ayurveda, Naturopathy, Siddha, Homeopathy and Yoga in preventing and containing the virus. A few months ago, our state government also included yoga and naturopathy in addition to Siddha as add-on therapies for COVID-19 treatment. Patients were being taught yoga asanas and pranayama to improve lung health. According to some experts, naturopathy treatment played a primary role in reducing the multiplication of the viral load.
