Bronchial asthma is described as Tamak Shwas in the medical science of Ayurveda (Science of life). It is a disease of the respiratory system (Pranvaha Srotas). In asthma the elasticity of alveoli of lung is severely hampered due to environmental factors (pollution) or other underlying reasons. The reverse air flow (vitiated Vata) causes tightness over the head-neck region and vitiates the mucus production (Kapha Dosha) which develops cold (rhinitis). The resultant aggravation leads to obstructive airway passages (Pranavaha Srotas Avrodh).
Such obstructions often lead to a wheezing sound with difficulty in breathing. Ayurvedic solution of bronchial asthma focuses to balance the vitiated bodily humors (Doshas) & clears the obstructed airways by removing excess of mucus (Kapha) to achieve normal inhalation and exhalation. Natural therapies for bronchial asthma also prevent unnatural thirst, running nose, loss of taste, and loss of appetite.
Asthma attack & Ayurveda
The 5000-year-old ancient Ayurvedic texts have well documented respiratory disorders viz. cough (Kasa), breathing difficulties (Shwasa), sinusitis (Peenasa), rhinitis (Pratishyaya), and many more. The main aim of natural therapy of asthma is to improve the elasticity of alveoli which further reduces severity and frequency of asthma attacks. The Ayurvedic care of asthma also increases the threshold of various allergens. Natural solution for asthma aims at balancing the aggravated bodily humor (Vata and Kapha Doshas). Asthma natural therapy includes the following: –
Elimination of vitiated Doshas from the body (Sanshodhan Chikitsa) – lubrication (Snehan), oleation therapy (Swedan) followed by induced emesis/ purgation (Vamana/Virechan) to remove the mucus plugs present in the airways (Pranavaha Srotas). Asthma quick relief is achieved by redirecting the air (Vata) to its normal direction and by restoring normal breathing. The above protocols vary during asthma in babies, asthma in children, asthma during pregnancy, asthma in adults, & asthma in elderly as per digestive power (Agnibala), muscular power (Dehabala), constitution power (Prakritibala) of the patients.
Elimination of vitiated Doshas within the body (Shaman Chikitsa) – Additionally, asthma action plan includes removing the mucus from the lungs (Nirharana) & redirect the Vata in its normal direction (Vatanulomana) with authentic herbs that balance the vitiated Doshas within the body. Such herbs have a natural property of removing mucus from the lungs along with redirecting the Vata in its normal direction. The natural care for asthma also insists on improving the digestive fire (Agni: root cause), enhancing the life sap (Ojas), and elimination of toxins (Ama).
