Utilise Ayurveda’s extensive knowledge base on preventive care to combat COVID-19 pandemic : M. Venkaiah Naidu
The Vice President of India, M. Venkaiah Naidu called for utilising Ayurveda’s extensive knowledge base on preventive care to combat the COVID-19 pandemic. He said that natural remedies prescribed in Ayurveda can help us fight the virus by building our immunity. Inaugurating online Global Ayurveda Summit with the theme ‘Ayurveda for immunity’ organised by the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), Naidu said that Ayurveda was not just a system of medicine but also a philosophy of life.


The Vice President said Ayurveda perceives humans as an integral part of nature and entails a holistic way of life where individuals are in harmony with themselves and with the world that surrounds them. Elaborating on the therapeutic principles of Ayurveda, he said, it believes in maintaining a perfect balance between the nature’s elements and the Tridoshas of the human body for a healthy state of living. “Ayurveda propounds that every individual has his unique constitution and responds differently to treatment and medication” he added.
