Respiratory Disorders

Refer to diseases of the respiratory system that include diseases of the lungs, pleural cavity, bronchial tubes, upper respiratory tract etc. Respiratory diseases range from mild common cold to life threatening diseases like the bacterial pneumonia.

Symptoms of respiratory disorders include a lack of appetite, feeling of heaviness, excess saliva, sleepiness, fatigue and phlegm among others. 

Ayurveda considers the vitiation of kapha dosha to be the main cause of respiratory disorders. This vitiation of kapha dosha is a result of weak digestion. If the food we eat is not fully digested it changes in to mucus which is known as ama (toxins). The toxins reach the respiratory system during the process of circulation and this causes several respiratory disorders.

Exposure to extreme cold temperatures, change of season, eating ice creams and drinking ice water when the temperature is rather high are some of the environmental factors responsible for the onset of respiratory diseases.

Ayurvedic treatments for respiratory disorders will involve bringing to balance the vitiated kapha dosha. For this panchakarma treatments will be suggested followed by other rasayana treatments. Kapha inducing foods like milk and milk products including ghee, fried foods etc should also be avoided so as to prevent every form of respiratory disease. We deal with two of the more common respiratory diseases of the present day: Asthma and Bronchitis

Asthma, Bronchitis & Ayurveda

Ayurvedic treatment for Asthma consists of using several medicinal herbs. These are used in the several formulations like kashayams, lehyams, arishtams and choornams etc. The major herbs used in the ayurveda preparation of medicinal herbs include liquorices root, amalaki fruits, black pepper, cloves and turmeric among others.

Ayurvedic medicines used in the treatment of bronchitis are aimed to restore the lost balance and to provide the needed inputs to cure bronchitis fully. Ayurveda does not merely treat the symptoms; the medicines prescribed are useful in rooting out the disease and it will further ensure that it does not re appear again
