In the wake of the COVID 19 outbreak, entire mankind across the globe is suffering. Enhancing the body’s natural defense system (immunity) plays an important role
in maintaining optimum health. We all know that prevention is better than cure. While there is no medicine for COVID-19 as of now, it will be good to take preventive measures that boost our immunity in these times.

Immunity is the capability of multicellular organisms to resist harmful microorganisms from entering their cells. Immunity involves both specific and nonspecific components. The nonspecific components act as barriers or eliminators of a wide range of pathogens irrespective of their antigenic make-up.

An immune system may contain innate and adaptive components. The innate system in mammalians, for example, primarily comprises primitive bone marrow cells that are programmed to recognize foreign substances and to react. Maternal passive immunity is a type of naturally acquired passive immunity and refers to antibody-mediated immunity conveyed to a fetus by its mother during pregnancy.

Passive immunity is also provided through the transfer of antibodies found in breast milk that are transferred to the gut of the infant, protecting against bacterial infections, until the newborn can synthesize its antibodies.
Colostrum present in mothers milk is an example of passive immunity.

Artificially acquired passive immunity is a short-term immunization induced by the transfer of antibodies, which can be administered in several forms; as human or animal blood plasma, as pooled human immunoglobulin for intravenous or intramuscular use, and in the form of monoclonal antibodies. Passive transfer is used prophylactically in the case of immunodeficiency diseases, such as hypogammaglobulinemia. It is also used in the treatment of several types of acute infection, and to treat poisoning.

Ayurveda, being the science of life, propagates the gifts of nature in maintaining a healthy and happy living. Ayurveda’s extensive knowledge base on preventive care derives from the concepts of “Dinacharya” - daily regimes and “Ritucharya”- seasonal regimes to maintain a healthy life. It is a plant-based science. The simplicity of awareness about oneself and the harmony each individual can achieve by uplifting and maintaining his or her immunity is emphasized across Ayurveda’s classical scriptures.

5 Foods Items To Boost Your Immunity And Safeguard You From Infections

Yogurt: To ensure hand hygiene, experts and doctors recommend washing hands with soap or using an alcohol-based rub, regularly. While hand sanitizers do kick away germs, they take good bacteria essential in building immunity, as well.

"Yogurt is a natural probiotic and aids in the formation of good bacteria in our body. Remember, it has to be freshly made. If you have sore throat regardless of the cause, yogurt might worsen it but for better immunity, you need probiotics so you can resort to supplements".

Turmeric: The golden spice turmeric is known for its anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Curcumin, the compound present in turmeric is a very potent agent and aids in the healing of wounds and infections. This is the reason, it is often suggested to have turmeric milk.

'Most people have it (turmeric) in the wrong way. If you are having Haldi (turmeric), don't have it in water, instead, boil it in the milk and have the popular turmeric milk. You can also take it with coconut oil and black pepper'.

Natural Anti-virus Foods: Tulsi leaves, star anise (a spice), garlic, and ginger are some of the natural anti-virus food items which give protection from seasonal flu as well. For boosting immunity and flushing out toxins, We suggest a Tulsi drink which can simply be made by boiling three to four leaves in water.

You can also take three to four pieces of star anise, give it two to three boils and have it warm. You can have ginger and amla juice. You can also have garlic; take one garlic clove, mash it, and expose it to air for five minutes so that its compound called allicin which has potent medicinal properties gets activated and then have it'.

Vitamins: Among all kinds of Vitamins, "Vitamin C and Vitamin D" play a major role in strengthening one's immunity. For the same, one should have more citrus fruits and vegetables like Amla, Lemon, Orange, and others. Also, egg yolks and mushrooms are a good source of Vitamin D.

'People who have been infected with the COVID-19 are being given Vitamin C through "Intravenous therapy" - that delivers fluids directly into the veins'.We suggest drinking fresh amla juice (30ml), every day.

Zinc: It is another nutrient that helps your immune system and metabolism function. An individual can either take Zinc supplements or inculcate in their diet through cashews, pumpkin seeds, chickpeas, among others.
