There’s a lot of contemplation pertaining to post-COVID care and precautions after post-COVID recovery. Ayurveda, through its holistic approach, has cured many patients with post-COVID symptoms. Let’s read more to know more.  


While scientists and doctors are requesting people to maintain social distancing and be well-prepared for the 3rd wave of COVID-19, COVID patients who have recovered are now complaining about the post-COVID symptoms. Chest pain, headache, excessive weakness, mild fever, cough, shortness of breath, depression, and mental confusion are a few of them. Other symptoms prolong to transform into chronic illness without an underlying health issue which includes grave conditions like Mucormycosis and coagulopathies (blood clotting issues), these are life-threatening issues and have no obvious treatment.

A new disease, which originates and persists after the original illness is cured, is termed “Udarka” in Ayurveda. All these Post Covid conditions like Mucormycosis, coagulopathies, fatigue, etc can be referred to as udarkas of Covid. 

Our body undergoes tough combat to defeat COVID, wherein the Dhatus – known as the building blocks of our body – undergo a lot of attrition, whereafter it succumbs to a weakened state of health and immunity. It is during this crucial period, that opportunistic infections seize the immune system.

Recover with Ayurveda 


The only way to overcome these udarkas is to revitalize the body and the immune system. This is where Rasayan therapy comes into action. Rasayan medicines help to Rejuvenate, Regenerate and Restore the health of the affected Dhatus. Rasayan medicines and certain food supplements (included under Rasayan category) help to re-establish the equilibrium of Dosha, Dhatu, Mala, and Agni.

I believe a holistic approach is extremely essential in these times especially when recovered patients are vigorously looking for an answer for their unexplained symptoms. How long to regain energy after COVID? What to do if you feel weak? How to increase immunity power? How long do I need to follow a diet? Can I overcome Post Covid complications? These are the queries that I hear every day. So let’s answer them all.

Following the daily regime prescribed by Ayurveda, proper food intake and exercise is important along with Rasayan Medication and regular treatment for a stipulated time.



Panchakarma therapies may be required in some patients, let your doctor decide it for you. Besides Ayurvedic treatment, focus on Yoga, Pranayam, and meditation as it helps in maintaining the body’s equilibrium and improves immunity faster. Yoga Asanas like Bhujangasan, Dhanurasan, Pashchimottanasan, Surya Namaskar, and breathing exercises like Anulom, vilom, deep breathing exercises give your lungs enough space to breathe, offer muscle power, and improves immunity. Staying active and keeping your body in rhythm with the cosmos is extremely crucial for people who have just recovered from COVID-19.
