IN CONVERSATION WITH DR. DEEPIKA KRISHNA

— Jasmeen Dugal

Deepika Krishna is an acclaimed doctor and Founder of Immunosciences — an organisation driving awareness of nutrition, physical fitness and mental wellness. In conversation with her on building immunity to fight the dreaded virus.

''People do have a strong immune system but are also susceptible to catching diseases. Though getting sick has never been scary because there was always a drug or a procedure to revert the damage, but with Covid-19 creating an upheaval in the world, everyone is scared out of their wits. With the outbreak of the virus, immunity is one terminology that seems to have hit the most searched word on social media.

That said, being scared of the virus is not an option; being aware about the consequences and taking preventive modes is the need of the hour. Medical guidelines implemented by the government as well as healthcare sectors state that children and senior citizens can more easily come into the clutches of the virus. But that doesn't make the middle aged susceptible to it. No matter what age group one falls into, one should take care of immunity especially during this unprecedented time.

People in their twenties are hustling and bursting with excitement and often forget to take care of themselves. It is a misunderstood concept which states that one need to begin look after themselves in old age; that's not how it works. Youthful vivacity isn't enough to ward off diseases. Our bodies protect us from free radicals only when we make an effort to protect it as well. It's the small things that matter — proper sleep, adequate nutrition through food or supplements, and exercise. Self care is a continuous process that has to start from an early age. Instead of eating out, one can start cooking at home which will not only help save money but will also ensure health. Exercising is a must to boost your metabolism therefore making you resilient to viruses. thirdly, include nutritional supplements to your diet.

People in their thirties often forsake their health to ensure the safety of their family. What they don't realize is that care can also be practiced while including themselves in the process. In our thirties, we are no longer reckless but brimming love and compassion is often directed towards someone else, not for ourselves. This soon becomes a vicious cycle that can make things go on a downward slope. Those shouldering responsibilities should take this lockdown as time to channelize their focus and energies on themselves. This kind of self care comes with eating well, mediation and taking the much required 'Me Time' where you focus on yourself and your requirements.

So, friends, building immunity is like skincare. It doesn't happen overnight; you have to put in constant effort and allow time to let you reap its benefits.''
