In the era of corona pandemic, Everyone is thinking about improving their immunity power to be safe from this dreaded disease.
For this, so many recommendation are being shared through social media including some exercising or walking for an hour every day,.
while some people recommend taking other types of Ayurvedic medicines apart from vitamin C.
Similarly, some recommend eating more fruits.. green vegetables and dry fruits. They also recommend drinking plenty of water.
But is the universal truth that …..whatever you eat , it doesn’t impact on our body if it is not propery digested . The digestion is the key to get the optimum result..
First, we have to know that proper amount of water and air play an important role in proper digestion of food. Generally, People pay attention to food but not to water and air.
If you do not get food, you can stay alive for a few days, even if you do not get water, you can remain alive for at least three days, but if air is not available for 1 to 5 minutes, then death is certain. This means that clean air is important for the body.
Hence, the truth is that it is important to know whether your immunity power increases by eating something or not, but it certainly increases by digestion.
Eat anything, if it is not digested on time, it will rot and then we will only suffer.
Similarly, if you drink a lot of water and that too is not digested on time, then it will only do harm.
That is why in yoga, it has been said that right diet, right meditation and right sleep all three are necessary to get our immunity stronger..
. Now we will discuss about Pranayama… , how it can strengthen our immune system…
To purify the air of the body, it is necessary to do pranayama. Through pranayama, the speed of breathing becomes balanced and it is regularised.
Due to the balanced movement of breathing, each part of the body also operates properly and starts digesting food faster.
Pranayama is the practice of breath regulation. It’s a main component of yoga, an exercise for physical and mental wellness.
Yoga is not just an exercise form but an alternative healing method.
BKS Iyengar, a well-known yoga master, said, “Yoga is like music. The rhythm of the body, the melody of the mind, and the harmony of the soul create the symphony of life.” Breathing exercises are an important part of yoga.
The practice of breath controlling is called pranayama.
