Yoga and Ayurveda is effective in the treatment of covid 19 – IIT Delhi Study

Yoga is effective in the treatment of high-risk cases of covid-19. A joint study of IIT Delhi (Indian Institute of Technology) and Dev Sanskrit Vishwavidyalaya, Haridwar has studied 30 high-risk covid-19 patients. The study on the successful treatment of covid -19 patients was published in the Indian Journal of Traditional Knowledge. According to the study, Yoga and Ayurveda can result in relieving patients suffering from anxiety and also aid in speedy post-treatment recovery.
Rahul Garg, IIT Delhi, said “The study also demonstrates an urgent need to scientifically examine the traditional Indian knowledge systems at the top academic institutions. A timely and suitably designed randomized controlled trial evaluating the efficacy of Ayurveda and yoga-based personalized integrative treatment for COVID-19 would have equipped the people with much more credible and dependable information about their use in managing COVID-19."
He added "Almost all the patients were classified as high-risk owing to one or more of co- morbidities such as Diabetes Mellitus, Hypertension, Chronic Kidney Disease, Coronary Artery Disease (which are known to lead to severe outcomes in cases of COVID-19), and/or age above 60. The treatment given to the patients was personalized (in accordance with the classical texts) and took account of each patient's medical history and the symptoms presented, which made it more effective as compared to a fixed standardized treatment plan,"
Dr Alka Mishra, administered ayurvedic Treatment, said "We are observing an increasing trend towards ancient systems of medicine,"
