Did you know yoga techniques can help to fight COVID-19? Here's what experts say
Pranayama is a yoga technique that helps to boost breathing. It can be highly beneficial in protecting you from the coronavirus. Hear it from the experts.
When your body's oxygen level is high, it helps your body recover more quickly. When you practice breathing exercises daily, the body's capacity to consume oxygen increases. Healing is sped up and accelerated due to the increased oxygen intake.
Removing toxins from the body
To maintain proper physical health, the body must be able to release toxins easily. There are breathing exercises that concentrate on eliminating toxins from the bloodstream, such as Kapal Bhati. This breathing exercise focuses on exhalation rather than inhalation. The body is able to release toxins from the body through this mechanism of continuous or forced complete exhalation and automatic inhalation.
Certain postures are also suggested as the best for practising breathing exercises. Vajrasana, also known as Thunderbolt Pose or Lightning Pose, is a posture that can be performed immediately after eating. Vajrasana helps to control blood flow by allowing you to practice breathing techniques.
Regulate your system
In addition to doing breathing exercises, you should drink plenty of hot water and herbal drinks designed especially for lung health. You should also pay attention to what you eat and maintain a balanced diet with fresh fruit and vegetables.
Pranayama strengthens the immune system, making you more resilient to diseases and illnesses. This is because pranayama relaxes your nervous system. One of the most common causes of a weakened immune system is a high level of stress, anxiety, depression, and other mental illnesses. With the aid of pranayama, you can keep your mind calm and comfortable, improving your immunity.
Breathing exercises such as Brahmari Pranayama, Surya Bhedi, and Chandra Bhedi will help protect and heal your body. If you have Covid, you can practice Kapal Bhati in Shanth Gathi (slow speed) at first, and then in Madhyam (medium speed) or Teevri Gathi (Fast pace) once you've improved.
