Ginger is used to basically keep the digestive fire burning and, as mentioned before, if the fire is burning efficiently, that will prevent a flood of conditions from creeping up. That’s why it’s important to always keep ginger active in your diet in some form or another. Keep the car’s engine running efficiently and the car will run for years to come.
Tulsi, also known as Holy Basil, is extremely purifying, being antibacterial and antiseptic, and is often kept around homes and temples to purify the air. Tulsi supports respiratory health, so it’s especially helpful for fighting off colds, flus, and allergies. Because it helps clear out the lungs, tulsi is also great for eliminating bad breath. It supports the colon for healthy elimination, and is one of the top herbs for headaches and fevers.
A good, simple remedy would be to mix some Tulsi powder, ginger, and honey for helping with most respiratory conditions. You can just take a little bit of this mixture daily as well just as a preventative given the corona situation. If you don’t do the mixture, then you can take either Tulsi caps or tincture.
Another simple tip would be to put a few drops of Udana Vata Nasya oil into your nose in the morning to give a protective coating to the nostrils throughout the day. Obviously most of us are not stepping out nowadays but this would be helpful when things go back to normal, and we are all out of our homes most of the day.
