Abstract:
This paper presents the importance of pranayama which will help to boost immunity for a healthy life with regular practice. Pranayama is not an alternative medicine of COVID-19 but a precaution to keep Covid-19 away. So, this is the time to beat coronavirus issues and improve immunity with ease i.e. with regular pranayama practice our background has given us numerous lifestyles based on total principles of preserving our body and mind in proper shape. Pranayama is one such way of lifestyle that our ancestors have given us. Basically, Pranayama is the regulation of breath. It is scientifically and fantastically designed to give full-size workout not best to our lungs, but to other several body structures and organs. The systems which are inspired cardiovascular system, nervous system, respiratory system. This may influence gut, renal, lymphatic, and other systems. There is the regulation of inhalation and exhalation in Pranayama, which is finished with eliminating the pause between inhalation and exhalation or expending it with retention. The technology of pranayama respiration is thus intimately linked with the autonomic nervous system and brings its function below conscious manipulate through respiratory practices and movement of diaphragm and lungs. The nasal tissue is erectile and could be very sensitive to respiratory. Control of breath constitutes an apparent starting point toward the attainment of the manager of the autonomic nervous system. It seems to have useful effects on the capabilities of omental adiposities, brain, heart, lungs, liver, and kidney functions. The left nostril, diaphragm, and stomach are provided via the vagus nerve. Few clinical studies have proven that verbalization of mantras can decrease the respiration rate, due to accelerating vagal activity, resulting into increased nitric oxide release while the respiration rate is brought down to much less than six breaths per minute. It is feasible that manipulation of the left nostril through breath may additionally impact pituitary function, hypothalamus, pineal gland, and suprachiasmatic nucleus.
