Covid: Do these 5 breathing exercises daily to make lungs strong

Millions of people are getting infected amidst the worsening condition of Covid. Thousands of people are losing their lives. People are suffering from breathlessness and there are long queues for oxygen in hospitals. One of the major symptoms of Covid is the dropping level of oxygen. While the health and medical experts are trying their best to handle the situation, you can also help them by making your lungs strong. It has become very important to build good immunity and to strengthen your lungs at this time. 

Between 60 and 65 percent of the patients are suffering from difficulty in breathing due to the new strain of Coronavirus. Their oxygen level decreases rapidly. Within 2 to 3 days it reaches below 80 and in such a situation, oxygen is needed immediately. If oxygen is not available during this period, the situation becomes very serious. This is the reason that you should make breathing exercises a part of your daily routine.

According to Swami Ramdev, through these pranayamas you can keep your lungs strong and can also protect yourself from many fatal diseases like covid, asthma and others.

This pranayama is done in 3 ways. First, breathe in 5 seconds and exhale in 5 seconds. The second method is to breathe in two and a half seconds and release in two and a half seconds. Third, breathe fast and exhale fast. Do this pranayama continuously for 5 minutes. Performing this pranayama daily is considered good for hypertension, asthma, heart disease, TB, tumors, BP, liver cirrhosis, sinus and lung problems. 

Anulom Vilom

After this, put the smallest finger of the right hand on the left nostril and your thumb on the right nostril. After this, fold the index finger and middle finger together. Now take a breath through the left nostril and close it with the smallest finger. Immediately remove the thumb from the right nostril and exhale.
