COVID-19 can be cured by meditation.

Meditation can be a complementary therapy, but it should not be the main treatment for COVID-19 patients.

Meditation can be a complementary therapy, but it should not be the main treatment for COVID-19 patients.A study has shown that meditation and yoga can be beneficial for COVID-19 patients, as they might decrease stress and be a low-cost way of providing support with anxiety. The study in question, which was published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, states that certain complementary practices like meditation are treated as an adjunctive means of treating the COVID-19 patients.

Another study – published in the Irish Journal of Psychological Medicine – also said that meditation and mindfulness can be beneficial for anyone during the COVID-19 pandemic, stating that "systematic reviews of such practices have shown improvements in measures of anxiety, depression and pain scores."

However, neither yoga nor meditation can cure COVID-19 and it is important not to just use meditation or yoga to treat COVID-19.

The COVID-19 pandemic has given rise to a lot of potentially dangerous misinformation. For reliable advice on COVID-19, including symptoms, prevention, and available treatment, please refer to the World Health Organization or your national healthcare authority.
