In Ayurveda, Bronchial Asthma is known as Thamaka Shvasa. It is a chronic inflammatory disease affecting the airways. It is characterized by sneezing, difficulty in breathing and shortness of breath and wheezing
According to Ayurveda, vitiation of Vata and Kapha doshas are responsible for Asthma. Kapha chokes the airway passage, and the flow of Vata is disturbed, resulting in asthma symptoms. The Ayurvedic treatment for Asthma focuses on removing the root cause of the airway obstruction and strengthening the airway muscles through Ayurveda medicines, diet recommendations, and lifestyle changes.
