Therapeutic Management of Covid-19 Pneumonia with Ayurveda – Case Series Report
Infection of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Corona virus 2 (SARS-CoV- 2) which causes novel corona virus disease (COVID-19) has put the world in a medical disaster. Scientists are taking vast efforts to contain the disease by finding a vaccine or clinically proven medicine. Despite the efforts there is no proven medication in any stream of medicine. Covid19 affects respiratory tract and causes pneumonia. Here we are presenting a case series report of patients who had developed Covid19 with subsequent pneumonia and approached for Ayurvedic treatment. All these patients were primarily diagnosed with Covid-19 by RT PCR and SAARS Covid-19 Antigen test. They had subsequently developed viral pneumonia. As per Ayurveda, patients had developed symptoms of vitiation of Vata and Kapha Doshas which affected Rasavaha Srotasa and Pranavaha Srotasa. Patients were treated uniformly with internal Ayurvedic medicines which were prescribed for median duration of 30days and had been analyzed clinically with pre and post chest X-rays. All the symptoms were relieved as well as haziness in chest was also cleared in all patients, which was confirmed with pre and post chest x-rays. This study will be an evidence-based example that Ayurveda can contribute in fight against Covid-19 successfully.
