The benefits of our ancient practice of yoga, is once again in the forefront, in the fight against the current and modern-day pandemic Covid-19. The world-renowned hospital, “Deenanath Hospital, Pune” has re-emphasized the advantage of multifaceted Yog. The senior doctors have claimed that their hospital staff has managed to keep this ailment at bay by practicing “Jalneti”. The reason given is that the virus takes 4 days to establish a colony once lodged in the nostril. With Jalneti, they are constantly washing it out and reducing the colony & hence the load on daily basis.
As per the study, knowledge and understating of acclaimed medical professionals, it has been determined that Covid 19 enters one’s system through eyes, mouth and nose. Therefore, the stricture issued clearly recommend washing hands, gargling and wearing of a mask.
The traditional practice of Jalneti helps flush out any and all viruses from the respiratory tract that could lead to a serious infection. The same logic has wonders in protecting the practitioners at Deenanath Hospital and kept them safe from this life-threatening disease, even though they are treating the Covid19 affected patients daily. Hence, Jalneti can definitely prove to be a preventive tool when done using right technique.
I am embedding the video of how to perform Jalneti step-wise. In case, you do not have a pot, do not feel disappointed, Vyut Krama will do the same job as Jalneti with a lukewarm saline water.
