AUTHOR(S): Raju Roy and Dr. Malay Kumar Mukhopadhyay
The Epidemic has shown its effects on us at different times in different ways in this world and over time its effects have diminished. Those who were capable of fighting against the epidemic survived in the world. We are facing the same situation at this moment. So our aim should be confined to strengthening ourselves physically and mentally and should not concentrate much on the effect of this coronavirus. Commonly affected area due to Covid-19 is mostly on the lungs. People suffering from various physical problems like respiratory problems, diabetes, kidney problems or low immunity have high risk of death. Throughout the world about Yogic practices are prescribed by different doctors, medical scientists, virologists even the scientists of WHO for boosting the immunity. Till date no specific medical treatment or preventive measure is available. So people have to depend on naturopathy. Yoga is one of them. Scientific researches on yoga have shown that yogic practices (Asana, Pranayama, Kriya, Mudra and Bandha) enhance respiratory capability, muscular strength associated with respiratory organ and boost up immunity power which are necessary requirements to fight Covid-19. Along with these practices other valuable teachings of Yoga Sastras (Patanjali Yoga Sutra, Bhagvat Gita, Yoga Vashista) are effective to strengthen mental power.
