Yoga guru Baba Ramdev has launched the Ayurvedic medicine of Corona prepared by Patanjali Research Institute. Baba Ramdev launched three medicines for the treatment of corona in an event organized at Patanjali Yogpeeth Haridwar. Patanjali claims that all the corona positive patients in the medicinal tests were completely corrected in 3 to 15 days through these Ayurvedic medicines. Not a single patient died during this period. These drugs can be used to treat corona positive as well as to avoid infection.
How the medicine was made – Patanjali Coronil?
In the press conference, Yoga Guru Ramdev told that only indigenous items have been used in making this Ayurvedic medicine, which includes many things including Mullaithi. Also, Giloy, Ashwagandha, Tulsi, Sanshari have also been used in it. He told that this drug has been manufactured using tinosporide found in Giloe and anti-bacterial elements found in Ashwagandha and the use of inhaled juice.
How is the medicine given to the patient?
This ‘Divya Corona Kit’ launched by Patanjali contains three types of medicines. In addition to the coronil tablet, the bronchial vati which repairs the respiratory system will also be found. Molecule oil has also been used as a nasal drop. In the morning, three drops are put in the nose. After this, three tablets of Shwasari are given on an empty stomach, which include herbs like Akkara, Rudanti and Kakra Singi. The patient is given three tablets of Coronil after meals.
What is the cost of medicine – Patanjali Coronil?
Baba Ramdev told that this medicine will be available at Patanjali Mega Store for around 600 rupees. However, it is being planned to provide free of cost to poor families who do not have even 600 rupees to buy it. This drug has been developed with the cooperation of 500 scientists in Patanjali’s lab. In the lockdown, except for curfew days, scientists have worked day and night to make it. Earlier, there was no research on animals to understand the effect of Ayurveda medicines, but now in the lab of Patanjali, medicines are being tested on animals too. In this, we see how the medicine of Ayurveda is affecting the liver, kidney, heart and brain of the animal.
Three major effects of coronil :
Respiratory works to repair the patient’s respiratory system. Problems in the respiratory system due to corona virus can be overcome by this. While coronil is helpful in boosting the immune system of the body, as well as in diabetes, blood pressure, sugar, heart problem, nervous system and mental stress. The element of Giloy present in it relieves the problem of fever.
Baba Ramdev said that this drug is not only made for the treatment of patients with severe symptoms of corona, but also those who have mild symptoms or people who do not see symptoms. They can also consume it. Cinnamon, long, peeple, dry ginger, gilloy, basil, ginger, black pepper and decoction of mulathi, we told the whole country. Thousands of people have been cured by staying in their homes. But making a drug based on evidence was a challenging task.
Baba Ramdev said, ‘We had seen corona patients recovering on the basis of yoga and now people have been made healthy through Ayurveda. Following the Scientific Parameters of Drug Discovery, making Ayurvedic medicine of Corona is a major achievement. Patanjali has also done research based on evidence in clinical control trials. Earlier, zebra fish was tested to overcome deadly virus like dengue.
