It is estimated that by 2025, a whopping 100 million people across the world will suffer from asthma. Unfortunately there is a belief that asthma is a condition for which there is no ‘cure’.
Asthma is a condition where a person finds it difficult to breathe because the tubes that take air into the lungs swell up, making it difficult to breath.
This is due to inflammation in the airways leads to the muscles surrounding the airways become tight and the lining of the air passages become swollen. This reduces the amount of air that can pass by.
Bronchial asthma is known as tamaka svassa in Ayurveda. This medical science emphasises 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.
It is mainly a kapha syndrome, though differentiation of humoural types also exists. In other words, bronchial asthma can be from any of the three humours—vaata, pitta or kapha. Most often, the disease is kapha in nature.
It is characterised by dry cough and wheezing. Additional symptoms are thirst, dry mouth, dry skin, constipation, anxiety and craving for warm drinks. Attacks occur predominantly at vaata time—dawn and dusk.
It is characterised by cough and wheezing with yellow phlegm. Other symptoms are fever, sweating, irritability and need for cool air. Attacks are at pitta time—noon and midnight.
It is characterised by cough and wheezing with abundant clear or white phlegm. The lungs are often congested producing a whistling sound. Attacks are at kapha time—morning and evening.
According to Ayurveda, the asthma of recent origin can be treated 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. Along with proper medication and control over eating and living, asthmatics can get better and quick results.
