Unlike the current generation which turns to allopathic medication for even something as small as cold, cough or headache, Prime Minister Narendra Modi relies on Ayurveda. In a candid interaction with Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar, the Prime Minister said, instead of rushing to doctors he swears by simple home remedies. In the interview, Prime Minister Modi shared his personal 'nuskas' which he uses to combat common cold, take care of his skin and sooth body pain.
The treatment of common cold and cough always lies in simple home remedies. Modi revealed that he treats his cold by drinking hot water and observing a fast to get rid of the illness. "If I get cold, I drink warm water, without adding anything to it. I also go on fasting for about two days," he said. Modi also spoke about the benefits of mustard oil when battling cold and said, "I use mustard oil to treat my cold.
I warm it a bit at night and put a few drops in my nostrils at night. It burns a bit, but it helps. The oil clears my congestion in just two days." So, take a cue from the Prime Minister and start drinking warm water when suffering from cold because it will definitely help sooth your blocked nose and sore throat.
When it comes to medications, Prime Minister Modi tends to choose the way which has the least possibility of side effects. Modi sticks to Ayurveda. "You will be surprised to hear, I have lived such a tough life. I have never depended on a doctor or expensive medicines," Modi said. Modi also spoke about the benefits of Assamese Gamosa (Assam ka gamcha) and how he used to always carry it with him while walking for long distances.
Apart from simple home remedies and Ayurveda, Modi also stressed upon maintaining a healthy lifestyle, eating on time and consuming a healthy diet. Now that the PM has revealed some of his secrets to maintain a healthy lifestyle and treat illnesses by using simple home remedies, take cues and try adding them to your lifestyle!
