The World Health Organization has designated the Omicron variant of the coronavirus as a variant of concern and currently researchers in South Africa and around the world are conducting studies to better understand its many aspects. While it is not yet clear whether Omicron is more transmissible compared to other variants, including Delta, preliminary evidence from the WHO suggests that there may be an increased risk of re-infection with Omicron.
This means that people who have previously had Covid-19 could be re-infected more easily with Omicron compared to other worrisome variants, but information is limited. The new strain of coronavirus, Omicron, is now becoming endemic, causing people to once again focus on boosting their immunity, which brings us to an important question –
“Does the body’s immune system have to evolve with risky new variants of the coronavirus?” “
According to WHO reports, Omicron has several mutations that can impact its behavior, such as how easily it spreads or the severity of the disease it causes. Although reports have not suggested any symptoms or causes of danger through this new variant, it is assumed that it spreads rapidly without any evidence of our body’s reaction and currently there is no relevant information. on whether the current vaccine can provide a defense or not.
Ayushakti Co-Founder Dr Smita Naram suggests, “One solution and precautionary measure for us that is extremely important is to keep our immune systems replenished and to stay alert to our bodily changes.” She revealed: ” Our immune system needs to evolve and be more resilient to prevent attacks from new viruses, especially since it is also cold weather in India.
Offering a solution on his side, Dr Smita added, “I would suggest following a simple and balanced healthy routine and, forming a daily diet, following regular detox plans like fasting or cleansing via a diet. leaves, once a week. “
The Ayurvedic expert said, “A good panchakarma cleanse and consumption of Rasayana herbs like ashwagandha, giloy and amla are good for our immune system. At the same time, increase vitamin D intake via capsules and continue to follow all Covid-19 protocols by washing your hands at regular intervals, wearing masks and avoiding crowded places. Apart from a healthy routine, these times should not be taken lightly and given priority to hygiene.
