Put mustard oil through your nose, corona will flow into stomach, die in acid: Ramdev
Yoga guru Ramdev on Saturday claimed that if anyone who can hold breath for one minute, it means the person is not suffering from novel coronavirus. "This is true both for symptomatic and asymptomatic cases," Ramdev said.
"There is a special pranayama for coronavirus. It is called Ujjai. In it you contract your throat, then pump in air with a noise, hold it for a while and then gradually release it," he said.
Demonstrating the exercise live, Ramdev said, "Doing this is also a self-testing (for Covid-19)."
"Those who have chronic hypertension, heart problems, diabetes and the elderly, if they can hold their breath for 30 seconds, and those who are young for 1 minute, it means you do not have Covid-19, either symptomatic or asymptomatic," Ramdev claimed.
Besides this, Ramdev claimed that if you put mustard oil through your nostril, coronavirus will flow into your stomach and die due to the acids present there.
"Iske saath agar aap sarson ka tel naak main daal dain toh pure respiratory tract main kahin bhi corona ho toh wo pet mail chala jayega aur wahan acid use maar denge. [Besides performing Ujjai, if you put mustard oil through your nostril, any coronavirus present in your respiratory tract will flow down to the stomach and get destroyed in the acids present there]," Ramdev said.
Encouraging people to practice yoga at their home, Ramdev also said: "Reduced oxygen level in the body is the main cause of most disease. This has now also been proven by studies world over. Practice yoga and you will be able to enhance your body's immunity, strengthen internal organs and protect yourself from corona."
