The Coronil Confusion: Can Anu Taila Prevent Corona Infection?

Recently Patanjali launched a new Ayurvedic medicine for COVID-19 infection kit. Kit comprises of three medicines available – Anu taila, shvasari vati and coronil tabs.

However Patanjali has not been able to demonstrate the use of Coronil kit in current COVID-19 patients. Therefore, I would not recommend using coronil kit at an exclusive treatment for COVID-19 patients.

However, the let’s see if coronil can help us in the prevention or management of COVID-19.

Coronil has 3 medicines – Anu Taila, Shvasari vati, and Coronil Tabs. All this has three medicines work in different manners and exert multiple effects on different parts of the body.

In this blog, Let’s look at anu taila first.

The nose is a very complex structure with a lot of convolutions inside. the convulsions in the nasal passage trap thousands of pathogens that enter inside our nose with every breath. However, if this nasal passage provides host cells for the pathogens to decide then. 
But, if the cells in this nasal passage have low immunity we can become host to the pathogens entering through the nose. When pathogen irritates the nasal lining the first defense response of the body is to secrete excess mucus through the security glands in the sinuses and try to trap the pathogens in the nose itself. And that is why we face running nose whenever we have an infection inside the nasal lining.

As for the corona virus, the important factor ids the ACE2 receptors present in the nasal lining. These receptors are present all over the oral cavity, respiratory pathway, small intestines, blood vessels and multiple other organs. These receptors are the entry point of corona virus inside the body.

What is Anu taila ?

Anu Taila is a classical ayurvedic nasal drop mentioned in Ayurvedic text like Charak Samhita, Ashtanga Hridaya, Sushrut Samhita. The number and choice of herbs differ slightly from one text to the other. For example, Charak Samhita (uses 23 herbs) mentions use of Triphala, where else in Ashtang Hriday there is no mention of Triphala as an ingredients (27 herbs). 

Anu Taila is considered to be a Tridosha Nashak that helps balance all 3 dosha in the body namely Vata, Pitta and Kapha. Let’s see how Anu Taila works. 


What is Nasya?

Interestingly, Anu Taila is not a tab, it is a nasal drop. According to Ayurveda, nose is the door to head region. And therefore all kinds of disorders of his head region as well as those of the respiratory system starts with the nose. If we are able to increase immunity instant immunity in the nose region then we will be able to protect our body for all the pathogens that can enter through those. Here we can see the first and the best benefit of Anu taila.

More about Nasya

Possible drug absorption and pathway for Anu Taila

  • The drug administered intranasally enters the nasal cavity through superior, middle and inferior meatus which further has six sinus openings.
  • The drug stimulates the olfactory cells. This Stimulation is further relyed through olfactory axons.
  • It crosses the cribriform plate of ethmoid bone Axons form olfactory bulbs. These bulbs form the Axons synapses with dendrils of the mitral cells. Many such synapses form olfactory glomerulai.
  • From olfactory glomerulai, drugs reaches olfactory cortex via axons of mitral cells continue to form olfactory tract.

Why Anu Taila is so effective? (coming next)

Preventive Action of Anu Taila

Links to supporting research studies given at the end of the blog

Anu Taila : A Mechanical Barrier

Anu taila forms an oily layer on the nasal surface that serves as an excellent mechanical barrier to all kinds of pathogens. This extra protective layer for the nasal passage also traps the pathogens before they touch the nasal lining.  It is as good as a mask that we are wearing inside the nose. 

So, with Anu Taila, there is a high possibility that any pathogen entering the nose will get trapped in the nasal passage itself, without causing any damage. After regular usage, this protection spreads to the deeper regions of the respiratory system, just like the effect of smoking affects the entire respiratory system. 

This layer stays on the nasal lining temporarily. However, on regular usage, it can serve as a great first defense against corona virus. So, probably we can apply Anu Taila before going outside!

In India, we have an ancient tradition of oiling the nose with cow ghee. and you can get this extra mechanical protection by applying cow ghee also. However, Anu taila offers some extra benefits as compared to plain cow ghee. And these extra benefits comes from the excellent combination of ingredients herbal ingredients it contains.

Anu Taila : An Antiviral Agent 

Anu Taila contains a big list of natural anti-microbial herbs.

Below listed are some special herbs with demonstrated anti-viral effects.

  • Choti elaichi  (Green Cardamom)
  • Tejpatta (Bayleaf)
  • Mulethi (Liquorice)
  • Nagarmotha (Cyperus rotundus
  • Khus (Vetiver)
  • Dalchini  (Cinnamon)
  • Pine (Cedrus deodara)

These herbs do not kill the virus, but they create a hostile and un-survivable environment for all pathogenic microbes. Their killing effect is neat. They kind of cut out the oxygen supply for the microbes. Microbes die their own death.

Selected important studies are mentioned, however there are hundreds of such studies proving the efficacy of these herbs

Anu Taila : An Anti-Oxidant

Most of the herbal ingredients esp.

  • Choti elaichi  (Green Cardamom)
  • Tejpatta (Bayleaf)
  • Mulethi (Liquorice)
  • Nagarmotha (Cyperus rotundus)
  • Khus (Vetiver)
  • Dalchini  (Cinnamon)

have a excellent anti-oxidant effect on the body cells, esp. the respiratory tract. With their anti-oxidant effect, these herbs may improve the overall immunity of all the body cells and makes them more resistant to viral infections.

Anu Taila : An Immunity Booster

Almost all the herbs in Anu taila have a great immuno-modulatory impact on the nasal lining.

Anu Taila : Ayurvedic Tridosha Nashak

According to Ayurveda, all these are kapha balancing herbs and they make body cells more resistant to all kinds of pathogens related to cough and colds. 

With prevention of vata and pitta dosha imbalance, Anu Taila prevents multiple symptoms like headache, loss in sense of smell or hearing etc. However, these points are more relevant in COVID-19 management. I will elaborate on these points in the COVID-19 management section.

Anu Taila as an Antiviral Humidifier

At any time, Anu Taila is a far better humidifier than vapor as it moistens the nasal lining. And the oily layer protects the natural moisture of the nasal lining. This quality of Anu Taila, combined with the natural anti-viral effect, protects the nasal lining from dryness and increased vulnerability to virus attack.

Therefore, we can see that Anu Taila can be a potential complementary preventive support in case of COVID 19.

Besides, the present corona infections are being treated by managing the symptoms. In the next blog, let’s see how Anu Taila can help to manage COVID19 symptoms in the infected patients.

The Slap Medicine

In the previous article on concentration, we saw what is concentration and the Hidden factor behind the lack of concentration. 

In this blog, we will discuss one of the most common and convenient ways to develop instant concentration and its effects on the body.

The Slap Medicine

Performance-enhancing substance – Nootropic: smart drugs and cognitive enhancers 

The term “nootropic” is derived from the Ancient Greek words νόος (nóos) meaning “mind” and τροπή (tropḗ) meaning “a turning. We have many natural herbs like Brahmi that help to increase concentration, however, in this video let’s focus on artificially manufactured smart drugs., synthetic drugs

Normally we use chemical-based stimulants to improve concentration. Some of the examples are –

  • Adderall
  • Anabolic Steroids
  • Cocaine
  • Concerta
  • Crack Cocaine
  • Dexedrine
  • Ecstasy
  • Methamphetamine
  • Ritalin

These medicines remind me of teachers a few decades back, who would beat their students to produce instant focus! And yes, it used to work…

And a normal chemical stimulant works in a similar manner, it gives your body a tight slap, and then you suddenly feel radical levels of energy and attention. These Stimulants turn on the sympathetic system – the emergency response mode. They practically shake up the metabolism, they create havoc inside by raise heart rate, blood sugar, and blood pressure, constrict blood vessels, and open the pathways of the respiratory system. 

Quality of concentration

These drugs prepare the body for war! And yes, they bring concentration. But the problem is that in emergency situations, the conscious mind shuts down, the animal instincts of the fight, flight freeze take over. And therefore, the quality of concentration these drugs achieve might be unsustainable in the long run. 

Stimulants work for a short time

Cheetah is the fastest animal on earth, but it cannot run for miles, only for short distances. And after every run, it needs to rest. The same goes for stimulants.

According to the Yerkes–Dodson law, there is an empirical relationship between arousal and performance. This means that the arousal can increase performance up to a level. After a maximum point, increased arousal triggers a slowdown in performance. This happens because, after a point, the body becomes tired.

Stimulants are tiring

Natural concentration stimulates only the brain. And the brain, just like a computer needs very less energy to work. And that’s why, with natural levels of concentration, it is able to function for a long time, without getting tired.

However, because stimulants trigger the emergency mode – they stimulate both the mind and the body. So, it is like supplying energy to a whole robot and not only a small computer. They turn on the emergency mode, which supplies excess energy to not only the brain but also muscles! Because in emergency mode, you need to fight, flee, or freeze. But there is no need for muscle power when you are reading something. 

That’s the reason why stimulant-induced concentration works for a very short time and makes you feel very tired. 

The War Toll

These stimulants create a war-like condition, however, you cannot be at war all the time. This drug-induced concentration is not sustainable as it does not emerge from a restful state. On the contrary, it brings a lot of metabolic damage and repair work, just like a war. But if you expose the body to this emergency survival mode for a long duration or very frequently, then the body will get very tired, and severely damaged.

Besides, these drugs can be addictive!

The Addiction Trap

Let’s elaborate on the teacher’s example. Once the children are habituated to beating, one slap might not produce the desired effect. 

Also, if you get habituated to stimulants, you will have to go on increasing the dosage to get the same results,  but the problem is that it takes a huge toll on the body!

Short-Term Effects of Stimulants

Stimulants are generally abused for their euphoric, energetic effects. In the short term, stimulant effects can be very pleasurable and may include:

Other effects of stimulants include:

Side Effects

Long-Term Effects of Abusing Stimulants


  • Hallucinations.
  • Delusions.
  • Persistent anxiety.
  • Paranoia.
  • Depression.



Looking at the severe effects of these drugs, I would not prefer to experiment with them for fun.  These drugs should be taken only for specific disorders only under medical supervision . 
And  for better concentration, you definitely not need them., because there are far better and natural options available already.

Big Pharma achieves total legal immunity for coronavirus vaccines; even as vaccine injections will be FORCED onto billions of people, potentially killing tens of millions

Image: Big Pharma achieves total legal immunity for coronavirus vaccines; even as vaccine injections will be FORCED onto billions of people, potentially killing tens of millions

(Natural News) We have now arrived at the ultimate moneymaking scam for Big Pharma, a corrupt, criminal industry that’s going to great lengths to pressure Big Tech to censor all speech that doesn’t earn them more profits. Now, vaccine manufacturers like AstraZeneca are openly bragging about how they’ve achieved absolute legal immunity from all side effects caused by coronavirus vaccines, even as “Dr. Evil” Fauci and other pawns of the vaccine industry are pushing for mandatory vaccine injections for billions of people.

You have no right to say no, in other words, but you also have no right to sue if their product turns out to be faulty and causes injury or harm.

This is now the status quo of the lawless, anti-human vaccine industry and all its corrupt collaborators such as Big Tech, Big Media, medical schools and complicit medical…

This blog series about mindfulness is more about my personal experience about mindfulness and how I have tried to implement it in my life.

Right now, my daughter is playing some game on my mobile phone and I am typing these pages of this blog. And my mind is almost burning since I hate her to play with mobile or TV or any other gadget for a long time. I try my best to create games or other healthier diversions for her so that she watches less and less of the mobile or TV. But still, in spite of everything I do, there are times when I am angry over something and I spent a lot of time getting over it while my daughter plays mobile or watches TV. Later, I have a huge feeling of guilt that I am a bad mother. Earlier, as a new mom, I was so much into being present for my daughter that I starved myself of even my basic needs. And still, there is constant anguish over even small lapses that I make as a mother.

I am not trying to teach mindfulness as I am beginner myself. Past 18 years of meditation were all washed away with my daughter and with the stress that I faced as I gave up my job to be a stay at home mom. The most terrible thing happens when you try to be the perfect mom!

After birth of my daughter, I suffered from post partum depression. Normally, it is never diagnosed in India. I know it now after 6 years that I was under depression for some time.

Only meditation and mindfulness has pulled me away from deep depression and other health problems. Still, I get angry very fast and take a long time to regain my mental balance. But now, I know that there will be peace again in my mind and my life. This is the only thing that I have learned till now. Hope that you benefit much more from this series. And I know that with more people like you the world will be a better place for my daughter.

Here is a list of my first few articles on how I have tried to implement mindfulness in my own life. I will try to add more soon.

This blog series is available in the form of a book in kindle –

Thanks for reading!

Masks Cause Damage: Study Reveals Mask-Hypoxia-Blood Clot Connection

Important information!


An interesting perspective…..


  • THE STORY:A 2018 study shows a serious hypoxia-blood clot connection. Since hypoxia is under oxygenation, wearing masks could lead to serious or even lethal health issues for some people.
  • THE IMPLICATIONS:Now that even a May 2020 CDC study (with WHO involvement) has concluded masks are not effective to stop transmission of influenza, how much more evidence do people need to stop wearing masks and cooperating with their own enslavement?

mask hypoxia-blood-clot connection

A serious and potentially lethal hypoxia-blood clot connection

has been found by a scientific study entitled Hypoxia downregulates protein S expression. The study, published in July 2018, describes how hypoxia (a low concentration of oxygen) decreases Protein S in the blood, a natural anticoagulant. This leads to an increased risk for the development of thrombosis or blood clots, some of which are potentially life-threatening. The study was unique in that it was the first…

Satvavjay : Ayurvedic Psychotherapy

The word satva is used in many senses in Sanskrit. Satva means the mind, it also means virtue/rightousness or morale. Satva is one of the 3 guna (satva, raja and tama) that runs the world as the 3 dosha run the bodies of living organisms.

The 3 guna are basically 3 types of mental orientations. They are a set of assumptions that help us to understand ourselves. Gunas give us emotional and intellectual context for thinking and logic. Gunas are like modes in a video game, where you can choose to play the good guy, the bad guy or the side artist. These gunas form the learning program for all of us.

Satva : the good, signifies light

Raja : full of desires

Tama : signifies darkness

Now, why would a person choose tama or raja guna? Have you seen people who would kill for money? for them, a monk would be no more than a fool who should be punished for his idiocy. Besides, there are also people who would die for a cause even when there is no need to die! But they do die because they are trapped by sattva guna. They have an acute emotional need to show that they stand for good. Thus all gunas are said to be blindfolds, only their colors might be different. Tama might be black in color, raja red, and satva might be white, but still, blindfolds are blindfolds!

Thus the mind is limited by all the 3 guna , even the satva guna. Yes! ond these guna, we can realize the full potential of our mind.

Satvavjaya chikitsa is more about gaining control over the mind. According to Bhagavata Geeta, when mind desires something and fuses its existence with something, event or quality, it develops an imaginary world around it. This imaginary world traps the mind and prevents it from seeing reality. The desire is called “kama”. This can be called the first stage for any mental disorder. Kama is a driving force. It is a force that extinguishes the lamp of discretion and reason.

Sometimes, we know that something is wrong but still we devise reasons and logic to justify it. Kama creates illusions and false assumptions to justify itself. It hides in the subconscious; behind an umbrella of illusion. A person is driven by a desire sometimes does not even know the real cause of his actions. He comes under the influence of “moha” or self-deception.

This is the sunset for wisdom and advent of the night of destiny, where the mind is completely engaged in a dream-world.

An insecure person becomes naturally greedy. Greed creates a lust for more. More accumulation of wealth, power, or even information helps to fortify and secure the dream world of the person. Deep down we all know that the truth is indestructible. Thus we want to make sure that our dream world is the lasting one. Instead of trying to discover the real world, we try to thrust over the dream world over the real one. Greed or “Lobh” is a tool that helps to achieve his end.

Most interesting is the greed for knowledge, good deeds or acceptance. People make big sacrifices, devote their lives in service, or unconsciously choose a miserable life, just to prove a point or to become valued.

In the next stage, the individual tries to protect his imaginary world by creating false assumptions, asking and expecting other people to endorse his world-view. He feels threatened when anyone questions his beliefs. This is the dawn of anger. The person is out to protect his dream world. He might be ready to kill or die for it. ” krodha” or anger is the second level of mental disturbance.

Thus all the mental disorders seem to emerge from the influence of desires. When a person fuses with his desires, prejudices, anger or misery, he becomes an automaton, a robot!

Satvavjaya Chikitsa is mainly about freeing people from their own mental traps and helping them to accept the truth as it is. And this can happen when you tame the mind – the most powerful resource we have.

Satvavjay: Time for Revival

Unfortunately, most of the ancient texts are lost.

But, I observed that essential Satvavjay chikitsa was never completely lost. It was always present deeply ingrained in all ancient cultures, in the form of religious practices. And we can find bits of Satvavjay chikitsa in every culture and civilization.

Today, there is more need of Satvavjay chikitsa than before. I very sincerely believe that all wisdom dwells in the cosmos and we can receive it if we align ourselves with the supreme energy (brahma). So, let us meditate on this science and revive it with the power of a million hearts put together!

Satvavjay Series

In this blog series, let’s explore together different dimensions of Satvavjay and how we can effectively implement it in our lives.

Interestingly, Satvavjay chikitsa includes a number of treatment methods. I don’t know about details because very less is mentioned in ancient Ayurvedic text available today. Most of the Ayurvedic text in BAMS focuses on yuktivyapashraya or body based treatment through medicines etc. However, there are small excerpts mentioning the importance and role of Satvavjay.

So, in 2018 I opted for a PG Diploma in Modern Psychotherapy to understand and find some links to this ancient healing wisdom. And it was a great decision because my course started with Freud and ended with mindfulness meditation.

Since then, I have practiced mindfulness in almost all my patients and have always seen a great result. My Ayurveda practice in the past few years have completely convinced that there can be no physical diseases without something wrong with the mind.

However, mindfulness is only one of many types of treatments. Here is a list of the treatment types that I found in Charak samhita and other classical texts. I will elaborate on all of these in future blogs, according to my understanding-

  1. Ashwasana (Counseling)
  2. Kala (Arts Therapy – Music, Painting etc.)
  3. Atma Vigyana (Mindfulness)
  4. Mano nigraha (Stability of mind through meditation)

All the essentials of manonigraha are amply covered in the great spiritual texts of Ashtang yoga.

LOCKDOWN LUNACY 2.0: Second Wave? Not Even Close

Written By:  J.B. Handley, Jr. Why did politicians ever lockdown society in the first place?

At that point, at least, back in early March, people were behaving rationally. They accepted that […]

LOCKDOWN LUNACY 2.0: Second Wave? Not Even Close

From RO to Boiled Water : A Healthier Change

Yesterday, it was no food-no water fasting for Somavati Amavasya. And by God’t grace, my RO water purifier broke down. My husband called the company for repairs. Meanwhile, we started boiling water for the daily drinking and cooking use.

At night, after breaking the fast, I drank the boiled water and it tasted so mild and sweet, much better than the normal RO water. The main difference was that water had some taste. RO purification method is an artificial method of water purification and as usual, it has some side effects.

Health Problems with RO Purified Water

  • RO water is devoid of almost everything. It contains no bad bacteria, but the RO system also removes the good bacteria present in the water.
  • Besides, RO system makes water completely de-mineralized. It removes essential trace metals like Mg, Ca etc from the water. Drinking such water for a long time can bring deficiency of many important trace minerals in the body.
  • Lack of these important minerals in the body can lead to muscle cramps, head ache, and tiredness. Not only this, it may lead to cardiac disorders, kidney problems, hormonal imbalance, degenerative disorders, low bone mineral density, low birth weight and many more.
  • Besides, metal ions present in the water like MG, or Ca make it alkaline water. This alkaline water is more hydrating to the body and prevents acidic internal environment. However, RO system eliminates this natural advantage of water.

You can find more scientific evidence here

So, what should we do? buy some other technology for water purification. However, I believe is that simple boiled water is the best for our consumption. According to Ayurveda, boiled water is laghu or easy to digest, probably because body has to spend less time to kill the microbes present in it. But at the same time it also retains all its important minerals.

Also, I have been adding pieces of alum and khus to my drinking water and it makes a lot of difference to the taste, fragrance and overall health effects of the water.

Besides, let’s put a mantra machine near the water :), it might bring incredible results, better than any high end technology.

I suggest that you also look at the water purification system that you are using at home and swap it with plain boiled water, esp if you are suffering from any of the disorders mentioned above.

Fruitarianism enhances the Effect of Ayurvedic Medicines

It has been more than six month now since I started strict fruitarianism (no grain diet, with occasional intake of cooked vegetables). And I can feel a huge difference on how Ayurvedic medicines affect my body.

Many people have a complaint regarding Ayurvedic medicines that they take a long time to produce effects or their effect is almost nil. And I know that the complaint is true.

However, with a switch to complete fruit (and cooked vegetables) based diet , I see a huge change to the level of response to all Ayurvedic medicines.

My Experiences with Ayurvedic medicines

I conduct a lot of dietary and medicinal experiments on myself. However, the body always takes some time to incorporate the new regime. And sometimes, esp in the case of extensive fasting, the result was constipation.


Triphala is a great general Ayurvedic health supplement, however I use it only for the purpose of constipation relief occasionally.

Earlier, I used to consume Triphala for minor constipation issues. However, it would require me to take 2-3 tsp of Triphala to see any real impact. I believe that my body faced a strong drying effect of vata dosha, due to changing food and lifestyle habits. However, everything would return to normal in 2-3 days. But the change definitely led to constipation and some other digestive issues.

This was the condition when I was eating grains in a 3 meals/day schedule. About a year back, I changed to eating grains with 1 meal/day. There were some improvements in my overall immunity.

Note: Due to corona lock-down, I have been eating a lot of potatoes and sabudana (storable tapioca balls) because they are more accessible now.

After starting the fruit diet, if I take a 1 tsp of Triphala, I face loose motion for 2 days, so actually have to reduce the dosage from 2-3 tsp to 1/2 tsp or even less.

The point is that my body has become more receptive to the medicine, the rate and quality of absorption is much higher now than before.

Anu Taila

Earlier, I would have frequent cough and cold problems during seasonal changes. These problems drastically improved as I made the ” cold water bath” (The Wim Hoff Method) switch. Almost 80% of my seasonal cold problems were solved through this method.

I would say that almost 75-80% of my uninfected sinus deposits were flushes away through Ekadashi dry fasting

However, due to some more experiments, I faced sudden sinus pain due to vitiated vata dosha this monsoon. I always use Anu Taila for any kind of pain in the head region or mucus related problems.

Normally, I would need to put 7-8 drops of Anu Taila thrice a day for any relief in cold and cough. However, thanks to the combined effect of Wim Hoff method and fruit based diet, the acute sinusitis pain was relieved with just 7 drops used once.

Later this week, mucus flow during intermittent fasting of Ashtami and Ekadashi revealed food particles stuck in my sinuses. These decaying food particles caused the sinus pain! So, this was not because of some chronic issue. However, I experienced remarkable efficacy of Anu Taila this time.

These are the two main instances of using Ayurvedic medicine along with the fruit diet, in the past 6 months. And both of them showed tremendous detox benefits of fruit diet.

I will keep updating my experiences regarding the impact of fruit diet. In my case, I do not suffer from any severe disorder, however, I sincerely believe that people suffering from any severe chronic disorder like diabetes, hypertension, hormonal imbalance, inflammatory autoimmune disorders can greatly benefit from this fruit detox and experience the true benefits of Ayurvedic medicines.
