Allergies Overview

Many people commonly experience allergies causing respiratory problems. Some people experience these problems during the cold weather while others face this problem in spring due to pollen. There could be various reasons for an allergy that has common symptoms such as runny nose, nasal discharge, cough, wheezing, and sinusitis. Allergies need to be tackled at the root. The cause must be tackled to prevent this problem from repeating.


Allergic Respiratory Causes

Allergic respiratory conditions, including sinusitis, happens mainly because of allergy to a particular substance, known as an allergen. For some people, pollen is the allergen and their conditions worsen during spring season when plants release pollen in the air. The immune system of the body perceives the pollen grain as a danger and triggers off an allergic reaction. This includes coughing, running nose, wheezing, blocked sinuses, etc.

Allergies can be caused by smoke, dust, and pollution. Any of these factors may trigger an allergic reaction.

Some of the common causes of allergy include:

  • Dust

  • Smoke, including pollution

  • Cold air

  • Consumption of cold water, cold drinks, and cold foods

  • Fatty food

  • Allergens like pollen

  • Weakness of the immune system due to genetic predisposition


Ayurveda’s view of respiratory allergy

In Ayurveda, all diseases and health problems are believed to occur as a result of imbalance in the Vata, Pitta, and Kapha doshas. This imbalance in Vata, Pitta, and Kapha can occur due to reasons like undesirable changes in food and drink, changes in weather, and a change in lifestyle. This can disturb the normal functioning of the agni or digestion in the body. This leads to the production of Ama or toxins in the body.

The ama can cause a severe imbalance in the doshas causing allergic reactions and other problems like sinusitis. The main reason is that the dosha imbalance because of ama weakens the immune system. When the immune system weakens, the body reacts strongly against any potential threat like an allergen. This leads to reactions like running nose, sneezing, coughing, sinusitis, wheezing, etc.

Since any of the doshas may be affected, allergies can be classified based on the dosha that is affected. Vata allergies occur due to imbalance in the vata dosha and can lead to gastric-related symptoms like gas and bloating. Wheezing, headache, tinnitus, and sleeplessness are common vata related symptoms.

Pitta allergies lead to reaction on the skin like eczema, rashes, itching. It also causes disturbance in the digestive system.

Kapha allergies are the major cause of respiratory problems. This increases more during spring due to increased pollen content in the air. It causes irritation of the nose and mouth, leading to sneezing, running nose, and hay fever. It also leads to infection in the sinuses causing pain and congestion. Cough, accumulation of mucus leading to chest congestion, wheezing, and asthma can occur due to allergies caused by kapha imbalance.

Apart from allergens in the air, certain foods like milk products can increase kapha-based allergies. Change of seasons disturbs the digestive agni. Not managing diet properly can lead to ama accumulating, which weakens the immune system leading to allergies.
