Time to invoke supernatural powers within yourself.
At this time of lock down and viral atmosphere we all need to have an action plan to fight the Virus.
Let Person Hygiene (Frequent Hand washing and social distancing) be top priority, then selection of food, creating healthy environment and strengthening our inner self.
- Select super foods, Rich in Antioxidant and Antimicrobial properties. One such food is Rasam.
Rasam is a traditional authentic south Indian dish (gravy) made up of tomato, ginger, garlic, black pepper, turmeric, curry leaves, asaefotida powder, chopped coriander leaves, Salt and Chilli for taste. One can even add pulses as per requirement to it
Many people even drink it as an appetizer drink.
Now lets get into detail of nutrition of this wonder dish.
The distinct combination of Turmeric and Black Pepper, brings out the power of turmeric more effectively.
Turmeric:- Anti-Inflamatory, Antioxidant, Anitimicrobial etc
As we all know, Curcumin is the main active ingredient in turmeric, its absorption in body is poor. Thus Black pepper, which has piperine which enhances curcumin absorption many folds. Thus providing maximum nutrition of both Turmeric and Black pepper in the dish.

Apart from including above mentioned items in your diet separately or through Rasam one can include following items as well.
Tulsi green tea with ginger and Honey- to ward off common cold and flu.
And prefer only warm water/ hot water.
Remember prevention is better than cure.
2. Create Positive environment and a shield of positive energy
By listening to Spiritual songs- specially during this lockdown scenario, let supernatural forces be invoked.
My favorite devotional songs are
- Aditya Hridyam strotam
- Visnu Sahasranamam
- Hanuman chalisa
- Shiv tandav Strotam
Any devotional song which you can connect with.
Other powerful songs/ bhajan are:
Lalita Sahasranamam, Narsimha Kavacham, Skanda shashti Kavacham, Panchamukhi Hanuman Kavach etc.
3. Indulge in Yoga.
4. Believe in your immunity–
Check out how vaccine are developed, there are three methods by which vaccines are developed. All three methods depends on human developed antibody. Thus it is always good that we develop our own immunity stronger that vaccines are not required always. since vaccines may not be ready every time, but a strong immune system has greater chance of defeating incoming pathogen.
5. Last but not the least – Sync with Nature.
We being Human should have Humanity, though every one knows what is Humanity, all of us are moving away from this basic structure of Human.
Love and caring for other being is a vital part of humanity, as long as we move away from this basic structure of humanity. Nature will show her displeasure and anger. Humans are to be blamed for many natural calamity like Brazil forest fire, Australia bush fire and now even Covid19 or Novel Corono virus.
Consider being vegetarian. People are using growth simulators in chicks and various antibiotics and inorganic substances to make yield. Please stop making Non Veg Food your favorite as well as your children’s favorite.
You will have less antibiotic and pathogens in your body
We are what we eat, Please eat healthy food without hurting emotional creatures.
Please remember generation after generation we should get stronger not weaker. Feeding on antibody and junk food would make next generation weaker.
In Hindu culture, taking care of the nature is being told since time immemorial. Every person is assigned with an astrological sign. Each astrological sign is having particular plant and animal. Thus it is told to each person to take care of one plant species and one animal. Those who are taking care of this system. Nature takes care of his family and generation.
