Traditional medicinal products which enhance immunity have been able to contain the COVID- 19 pandemic in Sri Lanka to some extent, an official said over the weekend.

President Ayurvedic Medical Association Dr. Prasadh Hendavitharana told a seminar organised by the National Movement for Social Justice on Sunday that traditional medicinal substances such as coriander which enhances immunity have been able to contain the spread of COVID-19 to some extent.

“Consumption of traditional medicine such as Coriander which enhances immunity has resulted in the containment of the ongoing pandemic in Sri Lanka,”dr. Hendavitharana said.

“However the issue with Sri Lanka is the absence of an organised programme to make use of traditional medicine to contain the pandemic. (YOHAN PERERA)

    We need vaccins, not coriander

    True. Finding a drug for Corona is a uphill tusk.There will be some sort of protection by using aurvedic medicine, but doubt it can cure.

    Good. But people such as you that have to spearhead such moves. GMOA too shifts the blame others. Prove it to us, convince us, name the ingredients and methods.

    Coriander?! You lost the contact to reality.

    Tell the GMOA!! What about Bandara's paniya?

    Most of Sri Lankans know and trust traditional / aurwedic medicine, no reservation what so ever about it. What we can't and don't believe is what politicas promoting in the name of traditional/aurwedic medicine.

    Very true, whenever there is a local product, many are opposed to it including the very same people who are promoting these. They just oppose Dhammika Syrup without testing it. But people appear to have ignored such oppositions and are still gathering to grab a bottle. I have been taking corriender, ginger frequently and so far I have been fine although I live abroad in a city where daily cases exceed 1000 . I have also travelled twice in a very long distance flights without any issue. I am not sure what contributed to my safety so far but I would continue to take traditional medicine frequently in moderation. We need to pass this time with whatever possible.
