This time of year, called “sharad ritu” in Sanskrit, is characterized by an initial increase of Pitta Dosha in the body, followed by Vata Dosha taking over. Skin problems such as herpes are now frequent. Other viral and bacterial infections or diseases come to the fore as well, such as stomach ulcers, inflammation of the oral mucosa, hepatitis, and also chronic intestinal diseases.

CORONA VIRUS – How to prevent?

Everyone is talking about the corona virus (officially: SARS-CoV-2). What we’ve seen so far is that the clinical course in 80% of all people infected is so mild that they don’t even notice it. The mortality rate among the seriously ill is 2.3%, but only 0.2% among younger people (under 40). Statistical surveys of the past 30 years by the Robert Koch Institute show that annually, an average of 10,000 to 20,000 people die from influenza. The numbers with this new virus are expected to be about ten times as high, although so far, serious clinical courses and deaths due to SARS-CoV-2 have only occurred in people who were already strongly affected by other illnesses.
