REGISTER HERE to join Dr. Somesh Kaushik for this monthly series on Ayurvedic Medicine. This series is sponsored by the Libraries of Putnam County New York.

Shortly after Covid-19 arrived on the world scene, a mysterious array of symptoms began appearing in children.  At first, these symptoms were similar to those of other childhood ailments, but soon the severity increased to reveal life-threatening inflammation (lungs, kidney, heart, brain, skin, GI tract) requiring hospitalization. These symptoms also appeared in adults following exposure to Covid, and a link was hypothesized.  As yet, the cause of Multi-Inflammatory Syndrome in Children and Adults (MIS-C/MIS-A) is not known.

Come and discover:
The most recent findings about MIS-C/MIS-A and the conventional approach
Why this syndrome may be more prevalent in certain populations
How Ayurveda’s holistic approach uncovers root causes
The Ayurvedic philosophy regarding symptoms and treatment
