Causes of Bronchial Asthma

Aggravated Kapha (water) accumulates in the airways, leading to their narrowing and obstruction and its always because of kapha all sorts of blockings are enabled in our body so this must be addressed through medicinal herbs. This causes an interruption in the flow of the air in the lungs, causing shortness of breath and difficulty in breathing which is quite evident in the signs as well associated with this illness type. This happens because of increased intake of Vata (air) and Kapha aggravating foods, internal weakness of lung tissues, and various diseases affecting the lungs and ultimately all these factors join together in making this illlness a chronic one. Causal factors include living in a cold and damp atmosphere, having cold or stale food or drink, eating foods that are not easily digestible, and ama (mucus) formation that blocks the respiratory channels causing difficulty in breathing so patient should be always aware of all these symptoms related to bornchial asthma and take precautionary measures so as to prevent the aggravation of bronchial asthma.

Ayurvedic Bronchial Asthma Treatment

Ayurvedic treatment for Bronchial Asthma is initially focused on improving the digestive system because ama is always the root cause of any illness type and through intake of medicinal herbs, ama must be addressed. Herbal medicines are administered to clear the blockage from the channels by eliminating toxins (ama) from the body and by this cleansinng action holistic health benefits are witnessed in patients. They will then liquefy the Kapha present in the channels, allowing proper movement of Vata and fostering proper and easy respiration as the blockage shall open up and patient shall start feeling much comfortable in the treatment protocol. Additionally, immune-booster herbal combinations are given to the patient in order to provide both physical and psychological strength, as the patient becomes weak due to repeated attacks of Asthma because lack of immunity also is a causative factor for many types of illnesses and once immunity is at par, patient can ward off minor virus / bacterai invasions without any medications at all.

Diet & Lifestyle Advice for Patients suffering from Bronchial Asthma

  • - Avoid smoking and exposure to dusty and cold air because it aggravates kapha dosha.

  • - Drinking herbal teas or sipping lukewarm water with honey is helpful as it pacifies the kapha dosha.

  • - Eat less than the full capacity of the stomach for overall good health benefits.

  • - Heavy foods like dairy products, fried foods, pickles, cold foods, rice, beans and legumes should be avoided as they aggravate the kapha dosha.
