The death rate of Corona affected people in India is less while comparing with the other countries. Many of the citizens of Indian did not catch the CORONA why? As per the Health Ministry of India, the percent of the death rate was 2.15% and now the death rate has dropped from 2.15% to 1.70% which is less than many countries!! But the percent of death should reach 0%!!
What are the reasons for the development of immunity?
The food habits are to be kept in mind. Indians have typical food habits for a long time. For example, using turmeric which is an anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-inflammatory. If we consume the heavy turmeric it may lead to gastritis or other digestive problems. We have to consume it in small amounts and as part of our daily food. We have been using turmeric for thousands of years in our cuisine. Example in our porridge soups / Rasams or Sambar, curries, etc. In our country, consuming turmeric milk is another way.
The Basil leaves and seeds:
We have been using the basil leaves to make the water spiritually rich. The basil leaves are anti-viral. We drink basil leaves and dipped water in the temples which have many medicinal values. Generally, it is offered by the priest with spoons. Indian women do worship the Tulasi plant every day.
Sweet Basil seeds:
Sweet Basil seeds are very good for health and taste sweet as well. People in many places in India soak the sweet basil seeds in water and consume it. It is rich in medicinal values. It absorbs the excess heat condition and balances the vatha, pitha, and kapha in our body.
The black pepper:
We have been using black pepper. The usage was extensive about two hundred years ago. Dutch people brought the chili after that, Indians started using the chili and reduced the usage of black pepper. In fact, black pepper has more medicinal values than chili. Many doctors suggest to eat the chilli less, and Indians are suggested to use the black pepper powder rather than the chili.
Ginger is inevitable from Indian foods. Ginger gives the antiviral and antibacterial properties to the food we take. Many Indians drink ginger tea, which is healthy also.
Indian foods are made with garlic. Indians try to bring taste to food by using garlic. Not only that, but garlic also reduces the LDL (Low-density lipoproteins) and VDL (Very low-density lipoproteins) and it is anti-free radicals, antibacterial, and antiviral and antifungal.
Without using the curry leaves, the preparation of Indian food becomes unfinished. Curry leaves have many health benefits. We use chutneys, curries, rasams, etc. It consists of vitamin A, B, C, and E.
Curd and yogurt:
We use curd and yogurt. We use A2 milk which is taken from the buffalos and Indian breed cows. A2 milk has many benefits and the curd, butter, and ghee from it also have many benefits, which are rich sources of vitamin A and healthy cholesterol (HDL) High-density lipoproteins.
The other ingredients which are used in Indian cuisine:
Cumin, mustard seeds, Gingelly seeds and oil, anise, bishop’s seed, etc. are being used by Indians. In Ayurvedic medical school, the above ingredients are valued and the food of Indians from thousands of years has been improving the immune system.
Indians have some genetic advantage as well:
They have evolved to gain more genes that protect against viral infections, according to Rajalingam Raja, director of Immunogenetics and Transplantation Laboratory at the University of California in San Francisco, US. He said:
These genes enable natural killer (NK) cells, a type of white blood cells in our body that provide the first line of defense against viral infections
Two families of genes — KIR genes and HLA genes — play a part in this protective function. Indians have more KIR genes than the Chinese and Caucasians. This could make Indians more immune to the virus, according to Raja.
A similar mechanism protects bats from viruses like Ebola and SARS. “Bats are immune since they have expanded gene families that enhance NK cell function,” said Raja, who first wrote about NK cells in 2008 in the journal Genes and Immunity.
Is there any details about Corona in “Yoga Vasistha”:
The land of mystic literature and saints possess a book called “Yoga Vasistha” which was written a few thousand ago. It told a similar virus to the corona. According to Yoga Vasishtam, a disease visuchika affects the life of man by piercing pain in the heart, lungs, and kidneys, and other internal parts, and this visuchika is actually a result of a demon Karkati, which lives on eating the people by entering their bodies. As per Yoga Vasistha, the residence of Karkati Demon was the northern part of the Himalayas. Like this many similarities are there with the mentioned demon with Corona.
Indian firms are in the race:
the Indian pharmaceutical industry has been focussed on the manufacturing of vaccines and medicine. When it comes to the vaccine, Serum India with its partner has already been in the clinical trials. Meanwhile, we should not lose hope and we should fight against the COVID, the mask is our shield in it and sanitizer the weapon.
