Most of the people believe that no amount of Ayurvedic medicine can harm the human body. Therefore,self medication has become an equation of medicinal life if any disease or any other symptoms appear.

Are you also one of those people who take various home remedies day and night as well as months to prevent the spread of various diseases and also get caught in the trap of various attractive medicines shown in the media under the name of Ayurveda.

These remedies are beneficial to health if used in a very valuable way to some extent but instead of reaping the excess benefits, it can do you a lot of harm.

Take the recent example, in the fight against corona, on the one hand, modern medical science is engaged in vaccinating against corona and on the other hand, Ayurvedic remedies are strengthening the body’s fight against corona by boosting the immune system.

With the approval of the Ministry of AYUSH, Government of India, many people not only in India but all over the world are taking Ayurvedic medicines to prevent corona. But the Ministry of AYUSH and experts had said an important thing while explaining this remedy, that these extracts and medicines should be consumed in limited quantities only for a certain period of time and should not be overdosed, but you find it misused.

Extremes are Abortive ….
Excess of anything causes fall so we get rid of many diseases.

You may not have an idea of the harm caused by these drugs.

As per Ayurveda,

1. Excessive intake of herbs kadha can lead to serious illnesses such as hemorrhoids.

In today’s covid senerio, many people get to know about importance of lung health. Before this era many of us didn’t give minute attention towards lung functions and human health.

Firstly what do you mean by Spirometry ?

Spirometry is the most common type of pulmonary function or breathing test. It gives answers of followings,

  • How much air you can breath in and out of your lungs?
  • How much damage has occurred within your lungs?
  • Helps doctors in diagnosis of your diseases with its stages and categories.
  • Its different than PFT ( pulmonary function test ) but spirometry is a type of PFT only.
  • Its a simple test to test how much volume and speed you can move air into and out your lungs.

Is spirometry good for lungs?

           Using Incentive spirometry (IS) can help you practice taking deep breaths.

It helps in

  • Opens airways of lungs.
  • Prevents fluid and mucus from building up into your lungs .
  • Make easy breathing.

Hence , a manual incentive spirometry is included in breathing exercises.

There are some rules of spirometry that one must keep in mind before performing the test or exercise.

  • Don’t smoke 1 HR before.
  • Avoid alcohol.
  • Avoid having too much food before.
  • Avoid tight clothing.
  • Avoid in case of glaucoma.
  • Avoid medication for same day of test.
  • Must use strictly in sitting position.


Observing current situation 80-90% of covid 19 patients are asymptomatic or have only mild symptoms. Some develops severe pulmonary complications including ARDS ( acute respiratory distress syndrome ) with high mortality rate .

Incentive spirometry in my view is a lung expansion technique used to promote sustained maximal inspiratory.

It helps patients by improving ventilation and alveolar PaO2 gradient.

This reduces risk of atelectasis and shunting lung function.

It commonly used for pre-post operative patients as well as in pneumonia, Acute chest syndrome, COPD, ARDS.

According to guide created by Department of Rehabilitation Medicine at Columbia University and New York Hospital System providing information on how to maximize your recovery from Covid 19 through improving breathing muscles and muscles in arms and legs with important things like sleep and nutrition.

Some points should be taken in consideration

  1. Diaphragm muscles as well as chest muscles that help you breath need to be strengthened as you recover from infection.
  2. As soon as you discharged from hospital, should receive an Insensitive Spiro meter.

(This device is designed to help you to take long, slow and deep breaths.)

  • Daily 3 sessions of 15 min are must.
  • Maintain Exercise log chart that includes following points….
O2 saturation  
Heart rate  


Now we will move towards Pranayama explained in Ayurveda and its application in this covid situations.


The basic concept of yoga which is discipline based science focuses mainly on bringing harmony between mind and body.

           One of the yogic practices namely Pranayama are known to help in modulation the physiological response to stressors.

           Several randomized controlled studies have shown beneficiary of Pranayama practices in management of non-communicable diseases like HTN, COPD, Asthma, Diabetes, Sleep Disorder, Depression, Obesity that are might be comorbidity condition in covid infection.

According to Ayush guidelines, yogic practices and their benefits,

1JALANETICleansing sinuses

4UJJAYIIncreases O2 saturation in body.
5BHRAMARIImproves blood flow to ciliary epithelium and has anti inflammatory.
6ANULOMA-VILOMAHelping expansion of lungs.

When you take a deep breath and hold , there is a greater O2 exchange.

            The Rationale of use of deep yoga breathing as adjuvant treatment to covid 19 disease is linked with mechanical action to stimulate the vagus nerve and sternocleidomastoid muscle function.

            As easy breathing medical yoga protocol has been develop to test a cost effective care provision, training, contact tracing and mass efficacy testing.

           Between 60-65% of patients suffering from breathing difficulty due to post covid viral infection.

           To avoid long queues for O2 in hospitals after infection helping health and medical experts to handle the worst situation, you can also help them by making your lungs strong.

           Some of them are Bhastrika, Anuloma-Vilom, Bhramari, Kapalbhati, Ujjayi. It boosts your immune system as diaphragmatic movement also helps to stimulates the movement of lymph, fluid containing WBCs.

           In many studies , we have found that Pranayama had significant effect on improve respiratory efficiency for healthy individuals as well as alternatives therapy or as adjuvant to conventional therapy like incentive spirometry in respiratory diseases and post covid situation in every patient.

           So its better to go Pranayama and Incentive Spirometry hand in hand to improve whole mankind’s lung health.
