Symptoms Of "Coronavirus" Were Found In 5,000-Year-Old Ayurvedic Texts

In India, a researcher of ancient folk medicine, Dr. Smita Naram, while studying Ayurvedic writings about 5,000 years old, found a Chapter describing the symptoms of disease very similar to the COVID-19 coronavirus.

According to India Today, a Chapter called "Krimi," which means "infections," was found in the texts of the collection "Charaka-Samhita." Dr. Smita Naram drew attention to the similarity of symptoms of a new coronavirus and an infection that was described approx. 5,000 years ago.

For example, the Chapter "Krimi" is mentioned, the term "Lesma Krimi". It describes something that cannot be seen with the naked eye because it is "Maha Sukshma". That is, it is something so small that you can't detect it without a special tool.

"Charaka-Samhita" describes in detail how this something settles in the respiratory system of a person. Moreover, the "Maha Sukshma" in the ancient text is described as a round shape with "heavy" spikes.

"I was struck by how close the description of 'Charak Samhita' is to the description of the new coronavirus," says Smita Naram. "It explains How 'slashma Krimi', after settling in the respiratory system, causes coughing and shortness of breath, and sometimes leads to death."

By the way, in the same ancient text, there are three ways to prevent infection "Lesma Krimi" and to be cured of this disease. One of the most effective ways, surprisingly, is called isolation from others.

Also, ancient texts contain recommendations on the diet and diet of infected people, as well as practical advice on strengthening the immune system, especially the respiratory system, with the help of various medicinal herbs.
