Special Precautions after lockdown

We all know “Prevention is better than cure”

Are our preventive steps effective and fool proof, we need to recheck. Following are some mistakes I have observed people doing during lockdown, which I feel are dangerous and jeopardize the very motive.

Common mistakes seen

  1. Bringing grocery in carry bag from shop. – virus can come through them, best option is to carry your own carry bag and bring home items and wash the carry bag too.
  2. Handling money – avoid please, or wash your hand every time you touch money or card.
  3. Not washing Hands as per procedure– Give proper 20 -40 seconds of contact time for soap to act on virus.
  4. Using Anti-bacteria to kill virus- Bacteria and Virus are different. so you must read the label of disinfectant carefully if that can kill viruses.
  5. Not keeping Mask and Gloves in a defined sanitized area.– Define a place for keeping fresh mask and gloves, which should be covered. and a separate dustbin to throw used mask and gloves.
  6. Not washing grocery- virus can come through your grocery. Best method is wash them with soap solution. Even vegetables should be washed with soap solution. This step is very important. Very very important. Some criminal mind people are roaming with covid19 virus and deliberately infecting vegetables and fruits. Don’t be lazy of not washing small items like chillies. Be cautious, be safe.
  7. Unaware about the Mechanism of Attack by Covid19 virus- This virus has Spikes which attaches to inverted umbrella like structure known as ACE2 enzyme of Human cells. Ace2 actually is meant to regulate blood pressure. In simple terms once this chinese virus enters our body our own cell catches these virus and take inside the cell automatically. Doom! See below image for understanding. Covid19 is also known as SARS-CoV-2.

Escape the trap trick

All the pain and efforts will be wasted if we let in the invader after knowing the defense mechanism to stop it.

For Food Industry

  1. Install foot operated handwash sink at every entrance.
  2. Keep atleast one month stock of essential PPE like Mask, Gloves, Aprons, Eye protecting goggles etc.
  3. Clean AHU units, replace the mesh if required.
  4. Ensure calibration of thermometers – for thermal scanning
  5. Segregate non-veg section completely- including washing of the utensils.
  6. Develop raw material SOP, all received material must be cleaned and sanitized.
  7. Emphasis on Paper less transaction- NO Money, No Bills, No invoices in paper format- convert to all digital formats.
  8. Remove Menu cards from restaurants. – Bring in QR code format, so that customer can access the menu in his mobile.
  9. Do stringent check of cleaning checklist and schedules.
  10. Go only for branded cleaning chemicals. Go for CDC approved chemical which are effective for Covid19 virus.
  11. Remove common printers and photocopiers. Go digital.
  12. Develop uniform cleaning and distribution SOP for workers. Don’t send cloths outside for laundry. develop in house system.
  13. Develop Training Matrix covering progress of each participants.
  14. Keep fine for violating social distancing norms.
  15. Ensure Job safety for all workers, Don’t let go your trained warriors.
  16. Workers need to support the company at this time of difficulty too, by putting extra effort in every small task.

General

Be mentally strong and Happy.

Remember – Happiness is a state of mind.

This is the best time to develop routine for self, which will make us emotionally and physically strong.

Start doing Surya Namaskar of Yoga- Minimum 12 sets.

STAY AWAY FROM NEGATIVE ENERGY

Negative energy can be alcohol, negative news, anger, laziness, etc.

This is also a good time to bring positive vibes in your home & body, by whatever way you can think like homam, reciting God’s name etc. Because this free time if we could put on positive forces of nature then the forces will give back in positive form. That is the law of nature as we know.

Stay Home Stay Safe.

Let us pray all our economies get back to strength and prosperity.

Boost your Immunity at Home by eating, listening & syncing with Nature.

Time to invoke supernatural powers within yourself.

At this time of lock down and viral atmosphere we all need to have an action plan to fight the Virus.

Let Personal Hygiene (Frequent Hand washing and social distancing) be top priority, then selection of food, creating healthy environment and strengthening our inner self.

  1. Select super foods, Rich in Antioxidant and Antimicrobial properties. One such food is Rasam.

Rasam is a traditional authentic south Indian dish (gravy) made up of tomato, ginger, garlic, black pepper, turmeric, curry leaves, asaefotida powder, chopped coriander leaves, Salt and Chilli for taste. One can even add pulses as per requirement to it

Many people even drink it as an appetizer drink.

Now lets get into detail of nutrition of this wonder dish.

The distinct combination of Turmeric and Black Pepper, brings out the power of turmeric more effectively.

Turmeric:- Anti-Inflamatory, Antioxidant, Anitimicrobial etc

As we all know, Curcumin is the main active ingredient in turmeric, its absorption in body is poor. Thus Black pepper, which has piperine which enhances curcumin absorption many folds. Thus providing maximum nutrition of both Turmeric and Black pepper in the dish.

Refer below link for better understand Turmeric. which in itself is a super-food.

Check out below easy recipe to take curry leaves in a special sweet way.

Apart from including above mentioned items in your diet separately or through Rasam one can include following items as well.

Power of Ayurveda

  1. Condensed tablet form available for improving immunity and respiratory health. Condensed tablet form are more easy to take than taking Plant part and boiling in water to make concoction. Patanjali is one of the reliable makers of these herbs which use GMP practices in manufacturing. Below pic is suggestive only. (Swasari Pravahi is high in sugar-not recomended for person having diabetics)

2. In India most of the house use Chyawanprash to boost Immunity. It is combination of 40+ Ayurvedic ingredients.

Dabur brand is widely available throughout India and abroad which is trustworthy and high quality, other good brands are of Zu and Kotayakal Kerala.

Person having Diabetes should consider having sugarless Chyawanprash. Others prefering low sugar chyawanprash can buy kotayakal kerala one.

Tulsi green tea with ginger and Honey- to ward off common cold and flu.

And prefer only warm water/ hot water.

Please include Neem leafs

Neem is included in ayurvedic medicine and commonly found in many parts of India and Asia. It is highly potent in antibacterial and antiviral property. Thankfully now a days concentrated leaves are available in tablet forms- Himalaya is a trusted brand apart from Patanjali.

Remember prevention is better than cure.

2. Create Positive environment and a shield of positive energy

By listening to Spiritual songs- specially during this lockdown scenario, let supernatural forces be invoked. Energy can neither be created nor be destroyed, we know. These vedic mantras have potential powers which can change your physical environment and mental state.

Following Powerful mantras are beyond my capacity to explain their importance:

  • Aditya Hridyam strotam
  • Visnu Sahasranamam
  • Hanuman chalisa
  • Shiv tandav Strotam

Shri Lalita Sahasranamam, Narsimha Kavacham, Skanda shashti Kavacham, Panchamukhi Hanuman Kavach etc.

Among all Shri Lalita Sahasranam, is the mantra to call for the cosmic mother, when child cries mother cant ignore the noise, she comes to see and bless. All these are available in youtube with english meaning.

PDF form of Sri Lalita Sahasranam for reference

3. Indulge in Yoga.

Yoga means union with one self. That is what this lockdown is making us do. Close your eyes and go inside your body. To start with, best one I would suggest is The Surya Namaskar Yoga.

Second go with breathing excercise.

Breathing excercise is what Yoga has mastery .-Pranayam.

4. Believe in your immunity

Check out how vaccine are developed, there are three methods by which vaccines are developed. All three methods depends on human developed antibody. Thus it is always good that we develop our own immunity stronger that vaccines are not required always. since vaccines may not be ready every time, but a strong immune system has greater chance of defeating incoming pathogen. This can be seen world wide that now a days people have stopped going to doctor unnecessarily, that means all of us have the capacity to monitor our health and take care of even common cold. COVID19 is a different case, apart from this nobody or very less people are going to doctors. though bad for Hospital finance but good for humanity. (I thank all the doctors and support staff of Hospitals for working tirelessly world over, keeping their own safety at stake), but we should be open to see the other side of the coin too.

5. Last but not the least – Sync with Nature.

We being Human should have Humanity, though every one knows what is Humanity, all of us are moving away from this basic structure of Human.

Love and caring for other being is a vital part of humanity, as long as we move away from this basic structure of humanity, Nature will show her displeasure and anger. Humans are to be blamed for many natural calamity like Brazil forest fire, Australia bush fire and now even Covid19 or Novel Corono virus.

Consider being vegetarian. People are using growth simulators in chicks and various antibiotics and inorganic substances to make yield. Please stop making Non Veg Food your favorite as well as your children’s favorite.

You will have less antibiotic and pathogens in your body

We are what we eat, Please eat healthy food without hurting emotional creatures.

Please remember generation after generation we should get stronger not weaker. Feeding on antibody and junk food would make next generation weaker.

In Hindu culture, taking care of the nature is being told since time immemorial. Every person is assigned with an astrological sign. Each astrological sign is having particular plant and animal. Thus it is told to each person to take care of one plant species and one animal. Those who are taking care of this system. Nature takes care of his family and generation.

Namaste
