The Rules about Food: Keep it fresh, warm and simple
I am sorry, but you have to suppress your desire for tasty food while you’re battling COVID like symptoms. Thus, it’s time that at least temporarily, you stick to basic foods. These include:
- Food that a freshly cooked and warm.
- Rice Soup or Moong Dal soup without salt or fat. (It’s not enjoyable, but you do what you have to do)
- Make sure that you don’t eat till your stomach is full.
Following the last food protocol is probably easy. No one wants to make their stomach full with basic, probably healthy, but utterly flavourless food.
Once you’ve eaten, go straight to bed. The AYUSH license consultants suggest that it’s always better to go to bed before 7pm.

The second rule about food: Not everything has to be flavourless
The simple food that you need when you’re seek might not be palatable. So, you can spice it up with WHOLE spices including Cinnamon, pepper, cardamom, cloves and star anise.
The rule about sleeping: At least 8 hours
Without fail, and without any distraction, find yourself time to get complete 8 hours of sleep. It’s the time when your body’s backend – immunity functions – get activated and it gets time to process out the infection and free you from fever.
The Rule about Fruits: It depends on your symptoms
If you have symptoms, it’s important that you stay away from fruits. An apple away might keep a doctor away but it doesn’t work when you’re already sick.
On the other hand, if you’re asymptomatic, don’t go beyond grapes and pomegranate.
The Rule about veggies: Cooked not raw
Choose cooked foods rather than raw veggies, which means no salads for the time being. Try to discipline yourself into liking bitter guard. It’s said that it’s helpful when it comes to purifying blood.
Don’t eat egg plants, potato or bell pepper.
The Rule about relaxation: Relax to reduce stress

Speaking of indulgence, do not indulge yourself in smoking or alcohol. They can aggravate your symptoms, or worse, reduce the effect of any medication you might be taking.
The rule about exercising
If you’re symptomatic, exercising would aggravate the symptoms and make it harder for you recover. Thus, stay away from any form of exercise.
if you’re asymptomatic, you can relish doing Pranayam. yes, it’s a bit slow, and it’s a lot less intense because you’re not “pumping iron”, but it would be beneficial for you and would maintain your body’s shape while you become COVID free.
The key to dealing with COVID in an AYUSH way is to eat clean, go to bed early, relax and have as much of a positive mindset as possible. Good luck on your journey and we hope that you get COVID free soon.
