5.       Management of COVId 19 with the active participation of eminent, experienced AYUSH practitioners

CORONA affected cases may be categorised and managed as follows :

A. General population management for prevention (already covered in Stage 1 &2

B. Quarantined Peoples Not tested positive,

1. High Risk – These patients should be treated by medicines already described in Part 1 & 2 with proper pathyapathya.

High risk groups patients suffering from co-morbidities should be treated for these problems

Rasayana drugs for challenged organs

2. Low Risk Group – (PREVENTIVE CARE) – use of Sudarshan Ghana Vati, ShanshamaniVati, NaradiyaLaxmi Vilas Rasa<tribhuvanKirti Rasa. Shilajeet , abhrak bhasma, vishana bhasma, 64 prahari pippal, pipplyasava, amrit bhallaka can be used if required

C. Tested positive,

1. Asymptomatic –

2. Mildly Symptomatic – (CLINICAL CARE),

3. Tested Positive: Full blown but no serious complications – (SUPPORTIVE CARE) can be managed in modern hospitals as an add on therapy

4. Full blown disease with complications –these patients should be treated under the supervision of ICU staff only. Proper rejuvenation of the active patients of CVD 19 as their vital organs have been challenged and become susceptible to various diseases in future.

D. Recovery Phase:

1. Tested Negative – After recovery as per modern diagnostic tools which means the swab culture test negative with recovering of major respiratory symptoms the patients may be categorised by Doctors as cured should be followed for at least 45 days and provided Rasayana therapy and organ specific Rasayana so that the organs specially lungs recover fully and patient does not relapses as is happening in China.

2. Residual disabilities and dysfunctions

3.  Prevention of recurrence in recovered cases with emphasis on lifestyle, food habits, exercise and yoga for building up immunity. Rasayan therapy for revitalization of organs(REHABILITATIVE CARE).

Emphasis on general immunity to fight any communicable or even non-communicable disease in any way is necessary as a long term measure. These have to be followed strictly to avoid recurrence in disease-free cases

Clinical classification based on presentation of symptoms is more important because some patients present with gastrointestinal symptoms, some with upper respiratory symptoms and some with lower respiratory symptoms, some also have skin eruptions, myalgia and arthralgia

6.       To train the ayurveda fraternity for fighting the “Janpadodhvasa” by classical measures to prevent the Jala, Vayu, Desha and Kala Dushti

Lot of  knowledge and understanding regarding the process of Janapadodhwnsa is available for which Ayurvedic graduates should be trained vigorously. Most of these regimens are common for all endemics, epidemic and pandemics hence students for these measures should be trained. They should be trained to follow :

a. Nidanaparivarjan – Preventive measure – personal, social global

b. Apakarshan – General and disease specific

c. Prakriti Vighata – Use of Rasayana to make the target organ more resistant to onslaught of disease

7.       Conducting research projects under proper protocols with ethical and legal clearance

 

Integrative considerations during the COVID-19 pandemic

Diagnosing COVID19 affected patients in Ayurvedic perspective is an expert’s job. Ayurveda emphasizes on holistic approach with equal or even more consideration of the host, i.e. the patient. The Agni (digestive power), the bodily strength, the mental strength play an important role in the recovery of patients.

Janapadodhwansa(Pollution particularly of atmosphere causing single disease to all), Sankramaka diseases(spreading from person to person), Agantuja jwara, Vatakaphaja jwara, Sannipatika jwara are few conditions described in the texts match to certain extent in these cases.

Though Ayurvedic treatment is personalised, some protocols can be decided with probable Ayurvedic diagnosis based on above mentioned conditions.

In addition, Diet regimen has to be followed as per Ayurvedic principles.

Even while following conventional treatment, Ayurvedic diet regimen should be followed, along with Yoga practices for combating stress and depression.

In short, Ayurvedic practitioners should actively participate in the treatment of COVID 19 infected patients.
