AYURVEDA BEATING COVID WORLDWIDE
It was just a fine morning like every other day. The birds chirping, the winds blowing, and then the catastrophic meteorite landing on earth in the name of novel Corona Virus, and then all our lives had a halt. The time frame stopped and shops locked down, schools closed, every covered street became empty and everything became still. While everyone from every branch of science was working to their full potential to restore the equilibrium of this world, one branch of science came up with the most advanced yet aesthetic system to enhance the immune mechanism of all individuals and help to reopen the world once again. The triumph of Ayurveda!
COVID AND AYURVEDA
Ayurveda, the age-old science of life understands a disease based on the doshic characteristics it portrayed. Hence in the case of Covid, it was considered to be a Sannipathika type (combination of all three bodily entities) of Angantu disease (due to external cause) that supremely harms the immune mechanism of the affected individual. According to Ayurvedic principles, if the Ojas (the quantum of immunity) is normalized, then the body is naturally vaccinated against any pathogenic organism. Ayurveda accounts for the importance of having great immune mechanisms with prompt immune responses. Along with Ojas, a good digestive fire (Agni) will ensure the perfect disease-free state.
For this very reason, ayurvedic doctors and many others working in the field of Ayurveda came up with a brilliant idea that helps to enhance the immunity of individuals on a general basis on a national level. It consisted of oral medications, dietetic modifications, and lifestyle adaptations needed in the locked state of the pandemic to ensure the optimal functioning of Doshas.
To reduce the accumulation or rather the aggravation of Doshas, regular exercise in the form of Yoga, meditation, or any activity of one’s choice was advised to practice. With it the inclusion of Adaptogenic herbs in the diet as single-drug formulations to improve both gut health and immunity.
Lastly but most importantly, the digestive fire is normalized using formulations that have Deepana properties (Digestive and carminative action) to empower the body against any viral attack. Agni is an important factor in Ayurveda, for someone with optimal functioning Agni, their primary prevention is already established. Further herbal combinations like decoctions, tablets, and others that improve the factor of Ojas to improve immunity are administered.
To achieve this protocol on a huge population, The central ministry of AYUSH came up with several programs, For eg: The Amrutham and Abhayam programs that encourage category C covid positive patients, ie, people with mild or no symptoms, to completely inculcate ayurvedic medications and supplementary nutrition. This program had astonishing results on the patients with faster recovery, prolonged immunity, and complete rejuvenation.
HEMP : THE HERO TO IMMUNITY
Ayurveda uses the power of certain mystic herbs and their combination to get the desired effect on the body, with the appropriate use of dietetic modifications and lifestyle adaptations. Among the millions of wondrous herbs that govern all mechanisms of the body, one miraculous herb is the hemp or the industrial Cannabis sativa.
Seeds of Vijaya (the Sanskrit word for hemp) are nutritionally rich and versatile. It has a strong flavor and aroma, as well as a sweet metabolic result (Madhura vipaka), which helps to relieve the agitated Vata entity. Its scraping action (Lekhana Karma) calms nerves and keeps the nervous system in check. It has been revealed that it not only balances Pitta but also optimizes Vata. On the other hand, its incredible penetrating power aids in through fat layers and increasing metabolism.
Its blazing strength aids in enhancing the digestive fire as well as normalizes other metabolic functions and the Kapha entity. The potent activity of Hemp against exacerbated Vata is for your benefit, as irregularities in the cognitive elements are greatly stimulated by Vata imbalance.
Having such tremendous effects in normalizing the body, helps to enhance the immunity to greater heights by improving all metabolic activities including digestion, optimal cardiovascular functions, enhanced muscular mechanism, and many others. Incorporating this mystic drug in your daily lives will have a drastic effect on improving immunity by aiding in Antiviral and antimicrobial functions. Hemp, therefore, is the best herb you can consider to improve your immunity to tackle this pandemic naturally.
HEMP TO LEAD THE WAY TO BETTER IMMUNITY
A new study on Hemp Compounds in relation to Covid at Oregon University yielded spectacular results. The study underlines how Hemp Proteins can be used as a reservoir of prevention or active agents when Coronavirus tries to infiltrate the cells of a human body.
Further, its principal aim is that hemp-derived chemicals have the potential to inhibit the Covid virus from invading the human body. They discovered that cannabis acids bind to the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein. It also prevents the virus from using or carrying critical developments to infect humans.
Here is an onsite to our wondrous formulations
that help you tackle COVID.
Hemp Sativa Oil
Oil is one among the 4 important drugs that impart Oleation and with it the Ojas (Quantum of immunity). As the Ojas is regained so is the body’s power to fight off infectious pathogens. The prudent incorporation of Sariva oil in diet as well as external massage techniques, improves the cell mediated immunity of the individual. Moreover it also nourishes the skin and improves blood circulation.
Tacking with protein lost whilst fighting the virus off is a task that has to be managed to endure fast recovery. This is where the goodness of hemp hearts comes to your rescue. The nutty flavour with rich omegas and abundant in Albumin, the Hemp hearts not only provide the necessary nutrients for maximum recovery, but it also boosts the immune system. This frisked goodness may be consumed by combining it with your favourite meal.
HEMP INDUSTRY NEWS FOR COVID
HEMP COMPOUNDS PREVENT COVID-19
A recent study in Oregon University on Hemp Compounds in reference to Covid, showed remarkable results. The study emphasizes on how Hemp Compounds are a source of prevention or active agents that are actively performing when Coronavirus tries to enter the cells of a human body.
What is Hemp? Hemp, a variety of Cannabis Sativa plant, grows naturally in several parts of India. Its benefits, uses, and applications are penned down in several ayurvedic scriptures, proving its endless wellness has been historical to Indian culture. But the popularity of the Hemp plant has only recently found its footing. It can be said the Hemp Industry is still in its nascent stage, blooming with possibilities. Hemp is so dynamic that it can provide us with fiber, fuel, food, animal fodder, extracts for medicine and cosmetics, to name a few.
At Oregon Health & Science University, a study has been led by a researcher named Richard Van Breeman along with scientists and other fellow collaborators with Oregon State’s Global Hemp Innovation Center, College of Pharmacy and Linus Pauling Institute. The paper has been published in one of the esteemed publications, i.e. Journal of Natural Products.
Talking further about it, Its primary objective states that compounds of hemp identified in research by the Oregon State University through various processes and chemical screening procedures, show that Hemp has the potential of preventing the Covid virus from entering the human body. To specify, yes it is the same virus that causes COVID-19 by attacking and infecting the cells. They found that acids of a pair of cannabinoids bind the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein. It also blocks the critical advances the virus uses or carries to infect humans.
Cannabigerolic acid or otherwise known as CBGA and Cannabidiolic acid also known as CBDA are the two main compounds and the spike protein is the same drug target which is used in COVID-19 vaccines and antibody therapy. What is a drug target? A drug target is a molecule in the body, usually a protein, that is intrinsically associated with a particular disease process and that could be addressed by a drug to produce a desired therapeutic effect.
“These cannabinoid acids are abundant in hemp and in many hemp extracts,” van Breemen said. “They are not controlled substances like THC, the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana, and have a good safety profile in humans. And our research showed the hemp compounds were equally effective against variants of SARS-CoV-2, including variant B.1.1.7, which was first detected in the United Kingdom, and variant B.1.351, first detected in South Africa.” Oregon State research shows hemp compounds prevent coronavirus from entering human cells.
He added, “resistant variants could still arise amid widespread use of cannabinoids but that the combination of vaccination and CBDA/CBGA treatment should make for a much more challenging environment for SARS-CoV-2.” Further, “Our earlier research reported on the discovery of another compound, one from licorice, that binds to the spike protein too,” he said. “However, we have not tested that compound, licochalcone A, for activity against the live virus yet. We need new funding for that.”
With the myths and misinformation surrounding the Hemp plant and its use, it has been noticed by doctors that people are hesitant to take cannabis based medication. But it has also been retrieved by the same doctors that once they trust the doctor and his or her practice, they start with the medication and certainly come back and share their experiences. The experiences are fortunately positive. They registered leaving many other medications they were dependent on for lifestyle disorders, even so they had better health overall as it promotes holistic healing as it works on the endocannabinoid system in ones’ body.
Fortunately, we have access to these studies and also the medicines here in India. The Ayurveda Community has well trained vaidyas and doctors practicing Medical Cannabis. We have testimonials available from credible doctors who have helped Covid positive patients with Indian Ayurvedic Medicine in combination with Medical Cannabis and observed maximum recovery rate with good progress from side effects as well. With this information, we only want to encourage everyone to trust and follow the advice of doctors and also the Indian Ayurvedic Medicine for help.
The availability of plant based medicine with proving results is indeed a promising sign. It only makes our trust in Ayurveda more concrete.

FROM DR. PIYUSH JUNEJA
Ras Sastra and Medical Cannabis both saved many lives at clinical and subclinical levels troubled with Coronavirus. In my practice I have come across many individuals who have lower immune status due to compromised diet and lifestyle amidst their busy working schedule. With the rightful management of Cannabis in the immune booster kit, many of my patients have shown exceptional results with absolutely no post covid complications. One particular case that struck me was the miraculous recovery of a 90 year old who had tested covid positive with complications in the respiratory system. After undergoing treatment for 10 days he sprung back with much vigor, with a clean chest ray and tested negative. Another patient was a family from Delhi, who entirely was infected with the virus including their 2 year old child. I suggested the use of Hemp medication and the entire family was tested negative with no medical complications of any kind.
DR. PIYUSH JUNEJA’s PATIENT TESTIMONIAL
PATIENT TESTIMONIAL : NEVER DID I KNOW COVID CAN BE MANAGED WITH HEMP AND OTHER AYURVEDIC MEDICINES !January 12, Delhi,
It was unfortunate when my family and I were tested positive for corona after a leisure trip to Goa. It kinda scared me when my 2 year old child got infected. But I will always be grateful to Dr Piyush Juneja for his support for guiding through the best recovery during our worst times. Within 10 days of treatment we became covid negative without any complications. I am ever so glad for their immune booster kit we had used during the second wave for fostering our immunity as well.
Before treatment: Constant cough, headache, low grade fever.
Treatment: Outpatient treatment for 10 days.
After Treatment: Full fledged post-covid recovery. No episodes of cough, headache and temperature normalized within 3 days. No post covid complications also.
