Asthma can be roughly translated as SWASA ROGAM in Ayurveda.
Bronchial asthma is a common disease affecting 10-20 per cent of the population. Hyperactive bronchial muscles in our throat and chest respond to a stimulus that creates bronchospasm and lead to constriction of airways. This physiological changes involved in bronchial constriction create fluid retention in lung tissue and leads to asthma symptoms.
The main Symptoms are coughing, wheezing, chest tightness and shortness of breath, symptoms often being worse at night. Disease is mild and often unrecognised. Invasion of allergens like Animal hair and fur, Pollens, Dust, Common cold, Weather changes, Sudden exertion, Food allergens, Strong odours, Emotional stress, Tobacco smoke is the prime cause for asthma. It usually occurs in episodes and the person may have symptom free times in between attacks.
Ayurveda medical science emphasizes on gastro-intestinal factors apart from the respiratory afflictions to be the cause for bronchial asthma. That is why in the preliminary stage of the disease or just before its onset, the patient complains of indigestion, constipation or diarrhoea. According to Ayurveda, the asthma of recent origin can be treated more effectively. It is not the drug alone that can give relief from asthma but regulation of diet and the change of conceptual thinking can also play a great role.
