Abstract

Ayurveda, being the science of life, propagates the gifts of nature in maintaining 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 healthy life. It is a totally 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. In present situation of Covid-19, one has to take care of himself and his family by following simple precautionary measures explained in Ayurveda.
