AYUSH and its initiatives for the COVID-19 Pandemic

May 13th 2020 at 4:37 AM


Ever since the COVID-19 outbreak in the country, the ministry of AYUSH has been actively involved in researching the preventive measures for the pandemic. AYUSH is a special branch of alternative medicines comprising of Ayurveda, Yoga, Unani, Siddha and Homoeopathy.  All of these branches have extensive following as well as practitioners in the country.

These branches of medicines like Ayurveda and Unani mainly work by utilizing the herbs in their different forms and act on the body’s defense mechanism or disease fighting ability. Homoeopathy on the other hand, is a science that is based on the principle of highly attenuated doses or ‘potentised doses’. These doses produce a ‘medicinal disease’ in the body that curbs or eliminates the disease process. Homoeopathic medicines also play an important role in prevention of illnesses by boosting the person’s immunity.

AYUSH has released multiple directives regarding the role of Homoeopathy and Ayurveda in the prevention of COVID-19. These directives had invited a huge wave of criticism and mockery from people initially. Amidst all the criticism the ministry received for talking about the role of Homoeopathy and Ayurveda; the ministry of AYUSH still choose to stand by its directives.

The Ministry of AYUSH in one of its releases had suggested the possible role of ‘Arsenic Album 30’, a Homoeopathic remedy for the prevention of COVID-19. The Ministry had come up with the remedy ‘Arsenic Album 30’ after consulting senior doctors of the field. As a result, this remedy was being distributed to people in large numbers by Homoeopathic practitioners.

Consistent research has shown that ‘Arsenic Album 30’ has been highly effective in preventing the infection or in other words preventing the people from falling sick. Now even the BMC or Brihan Mumbai Mahanagar Palika has released a communication asking the people residing in Mumbai to use ‘Arsenic Album 30’ as a preventive medicine as per the guidelines of the Ministry of AYUSH.

Following the guidelines of the Ministry of AYUSH, we at WelcomeCure have distributed more than 20,000 ‘Immunity kits’ absolutely FREE to our frontline workers like Police personnel, Traffic Police, BMC workers, Fire Department, Healthcare workers etc. in Mumbai and Thane division. Team WelcomeCure has also been providing Teleconsultation to the frontline warriors for their health concerns.

The Government of India has now allowed AYSUH practitioners to perform research on COVID-19 cases. Our Founder and CEO Dr. Jawahar Shah has been actively involved in the research related to COVID-19. With his experience of 40 years and expertise he has also been treating COVID-19 positive patients, along with a team of doctors as per the guidelines of ministry of AYUSH. The team has achieved encouraging results with the use of Homoeopathic medicines. The results of the study being conducted will be published soon in the form of a scientific paper or case study.

The efforts taken by the Ministry of AYUSH have been of great help and can soon lead to a breakthrough for COVID-19 management.
