Right now, immunity has gained importance. In this article, I explain the concept of immunity according to Ayurveda principles. Ayurveda is a popular, and one of the oldest, traditional systems of medicine (TSMs) accepted worldwide.  We now have a magnificent opportunity to relearn our connection with foods, I am sharing a recipe for immune-boosting juice which can be included in the diet daily.

Immunity is considered as 'Vyadhi Kshamatva' in Ayurveda. Vyadhi is the Sanskrit word for disease and Kshamatva is the Sanskrit word for resistance. In Ayurveda, immunity is referred to as prevention of disease, as well as quick recovery from a disease.

So, how is one able to improve immunity as per Ayurveda principles?

By the concept of Tripods (Pillars) of Life, Ayurveda considers Ahara (food), Nidra (sleep), and Brahmacharya (celibacy) as the tripods, or three pillars, that support life. It is important for our body to be adjusted to a timely intake of high-quality and proper food, regular sleeping habits, and controlled indulgence in sex because as all this ensures a long and healthy life. Let us look at each of these factors in detail.



  1. Diet: It is essential to know what to eat, when to eat, how much to eat, and how to eat. Ayurveda isn't focused on caloric intake, proteins, carbohydrates, and fats/lipids. It is focused on seasonal eating and eating per your constitution, which also considers metabolism.
  2. Sleep: Sleep is essential and getting to bed around 10 pm (no later than 11) will provide a great balance to the body. The later someone stays up, the more the natural rhythms of the body are thrown off and the more this affects tomorrow by disrupting metabolism, increasing hormonal issues, cravings, and even affecting the next night's rest. Also, Ayurveda doesn't recommend sleep during daytime as it increases the Kapha in the body.
  3. Celibacy: Total abstinence from sexual activity may not be possible for ordinary people, but a restrained sexual life, keeping in mind the higher goal of eternal happiness and life goals, is certainly possible.

Following the concept of Dinacharya (daily regimen), Ritucharya (seasonal regimen), and sadvritta (code of conduct).
