Why does COVID-19 take so many lives

As we all know, COVID-19 is caused by a Virus. The question to ask is whether it is the Virus that cause the complications and deaths in human or the body response to the Virus that cause the complications and deaths in human?
There is growing scientific evidence to suggest that it is the later.
According to the current evidence, the spread of the Virus in the body triggers a widespread inflammatory and defence response. The response is so intense that it destroys our own body tissues, particularly lung tissues causing Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome in which lungs get filled with inflammatory fluids and respiratory failure ensues. It appears that the viral toxins themselves play a much lesser role in the tissue damage compared to our own body response to the Virus producing extreme critical disease state and ultimately the death.

Although the Virus can infect anyone in our community, it is evident that certain age group of people, those who are having chronic illnesses or having immune-compromised status, chronic inflammatory conditions are more prone to complications of this Virus.

It can be hypothesised that people who are under constant stress (both physical and mental), leading a very unhealthy fast life-consuming regular junk food, sleep deprivation can all lead to acute inflammatory repose triggering the release of inflammatory mediators such as cytokines as a kind of overreaction of the immune system when COVID -19 infects those individuals.

Does Ayurveda offer any solution?

Ayurveda takes a holistic approach to the health of an individual. The body and the mind concept is an essential part of Ayurveda. It focuses on lifestyle changes where required. Healthy eating, stress management with yoga and meditation, detoxification are key elements of Ayurveda. Ayurveda believes healing within rather than without. It assists the body to heal itself triggering all the natural mechanisms to work optimally. Ayurveda may not have all the answers to modern health challenges that we face today, but certainly, it will complement the modern medicine to reduce motility and mortality rate in our society and guide people to live a healthy, happier and longer life!
