Causes of Bronchitis

Aggravated Vata (air) blocks the Kapha (water) in the respiratory channels, the movement of the air gets interrupted, and phlegm accumulates in the lung tissue causing blockage in body channels and disrupting the dosha behavior as well. In order to expel this phlegm, there is a natural reaction of coughing, which results in Bronchitis and it interferes a lot with sleep and lifestyle pattern of patients. This can be attributed to many reasons like inhalation of smoke and dust, physical exertion, intake of foods and drinks that have a drying effect on the body, and the obstruction of the trachea by food particles so patient should be always aware of such causes and keep docor informed of any past history as well in detail so a good prescription be recommended. Another cause is suppressing the natural urges of the body, such as passing stool and urine, hunger, thirst, sleep, sneezing, breathing, yawning, tears, coughing, etc. and all of these causes too should be discussed in detail with physician so accountable medicinal herbs are prescribed. All of these causes are investigated in detail and analyzed as well minutely before beginning a personalized Bronchitis treatment regimen at Nakra Ayurveda Hospitals and Herbals Pvt Ltd

Ayurvedic Bronchitis Treatment

Ayurveda medicinal science calls this disease Kasroga and considers it to be caused by poor digestion / irregular lifestyle and poor choice of foods as well. Poor diet, poor digestion and incomplete elimination of wastes lead to formation of ama (mucus) in the lungs which results in blockage of body channels. This creates a favorable ground for growth of infecting organisms in the bronchial area and resultant is vitiation in all vital dosha behavior. Stress, poor lifestyle, bad circulation, and lack of rejuvenative measures can deteriorate the body’s immune response to invading organisms in the bronchial area so immunity must never be compromised by encouraging intake of good anti-oxidant rich foods.

The Ayurvedic treatment of Bronchitis is aimed at simultaneously correcting lung and stomach functions as both are directly related to each other and any chronic ssue can be quite complicated in many ways. Herbs are given to ease troubled breathing and expel phlegm so patient can feel at ease and there are no discomfort. At the same time, Ayurvedic digestive formulas are prescribed to enhance the digestive fire in order to kill pathogens.

Diet & Lifestyle Advice for Bronchitis Patients

  • - Stay warm and drink hot herbal drinks as these pacify the kapha dosha.

  • - Suppression of natural urges should be avoided as these aggravate the vayu dosha.

  • - Regular body massage with warm sesame oil helps to pacify Vata Dosha and softens the Kapha Dosha in the chest so its highly helpful in many ways.

  • - Cover your nose when you are in smoky and polluted atmosphere so pollutants can be avoided and condition shall not become chronic.

  • - Take a steam treatment whenever you feel irritation in your throat so vital physiology is not vitiated.
