Ayurvedic Asthma Treatment

Asthma is a chronic inflammatory disease of the airways affecting millions of users worldwide. It is characterized by variable and reoccurring symptoms such as reversible airflow obstruction. This chronic lung disease inflames and narrows the airways. Though it affects people of every age, it generally starts from childhood. Asthma makes breathing difficult for the patient and triggers coughing and wheezing. Asthma cannot be cured permanently but it can be controlled by taking adequate precautions and medicines.

Causes

According to Ayurveda, asthma is caused by accumulation of Kapha in the airways of lungs. The airways then become narrow due to the blockage caused by Kapha and interrupt the flow of air to the lungs, making the patient face difficulty in breathing. Excessive intake of vata (cold), eating kapha inducing food items, weakening of the lung tissues and some long diseases are the common factors that cause asthma. It should be noted that environmental and lifestyle factors also play an important part in causing asthma. Avoid consuming cold or stale foods that are hard to digest and cause the formation of mucus which leads to blockage in the respiratory channel and difficulty in breathing. Other factors include living in cold and wet environment that can cause strain in airways.
