After a long battle, Covid-19 cases have started to decline and states are gradually lifting the imposed lockdowns. However, there are still many patients who are in recovery. While prescribed medicines are necessary to treat the virus, there are also certain Ayurvedic ways that can help one feel better, said Dr Dixa Bhavsar in an Instagram post.

Here are the top three tips that can help you recover from Covid quickly, as per the expert.

Steam inhalation

Boil 500 ml of water and add two tablespoons of carom seeds to it. You can also add 4-5 tulsi leaves, one teaspoon of turmeric, and a handful of mint leaves.

“However, just carom seeds will do its work,” said Dr Bhavsar.

*Boil it for 10-12 minutes.
*Once it is boiled, take it off the stove and inhale the steam for 10 minutes.
*Do it at least 4-5 times/day.
