Asthma is a respiratory lung disease characterized by inflammation and narrowing of bronchioles due to the excessive secretion of mucous. It can be triggered by exposure to an allergen, irritants in the air or extreme weather conditions.


Ayurvedic Description Of Asthma:

In Ayurveda, Asthma has been classified under Shwasa Roga. When both Prana Vayu and Kapha get vitiated, they produce obstruction in lungs and hence, in the respiratory passage. This condition is known as Shwasa Roga or Asthma.


Signs & Symptoms


  • Coughing
  • Dyspnea
  • Shortness of breath
  • Tightness in chest

Causes and Risk Factors


Family history is a risk factor for asthma with many different genes being implicated. If one identical twin is affected, the probability of the other having the disease is 25 percent approximately.


Common indoor allergens include dust mites, cockroaches, and animal dander. Asthma is associated with exposure to these indoor allergens.


The correlation between obesity and the risk of asthma is quite known now, i.e. the decreased respiratory function due to fat. Obesity can worsen asthma symptoms and make them more difficult to manage.


Both active and passive smoking has found to increase the risk of asthma. Smoking during pregnancy and after delivery is associated with a greater risk of asthma.


The environmental factors like air pollution and exhaust fumes, chemicals used in farming, hair dressing, manufacturing and other environmental chemicals have been found to develop and exacerbate asthma. Low quality of air, moist areas also trigger asthmatic attack.

Self Care Tips

  • Avoid cold and damp places.
  • Pranayama and morning walks are quite beneficial.
  • Keep the diet light and healthy.
  • Avoid smoking and exposure to environments causing asthma.
  • Keep the rooms well ventilated, avoid exposure to the artificial air.

Ayurvedic treatment have proven to be very beneficial in treating asthma because of the versatile approach of eradicating the root cause as well as the belief in preventing the disease rather than treating it.
