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 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:
Smoke, including pollution
Consumption of cold water, cold drinks, and cold foods
Allergens like pollen
Weakness of the immune system due to genetic predisposition
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.
Ayurveda uses a holistic approach to treat respiratory allergies. Formulations made using Ayurvedic herbs are prescribed to treat these conditions. Other recommendations Ayurveda has to treat respiratory allergies include:
The buildup of toxins or ama is one of the causes of respiratory problems. Detoxification is recommended to remove ama. Panchakarma is an Ayurvedic treatment that helps detoxify the body. Panchakarma cleanses the body and when done before the start of season changes can help prevent respiratory allergies.
It is important to drink warm liquids only. Ayurveda recommends drinking a glass of warm water first thing in the morning and before going to bed. Cold drinks must be strictly avoided.
To boost immunity, physical activity plays an important part. Exercise and Yoga can help strengthen the body.
Pranayama involves carrying out a set of breathing exercises. These breathing exercises are strongly recommended for people with respiratory allergies. Pranayama strengthens the respiratory system and the lungs. It is a powerful way of improving immunity and preventing respiratory problems.
Taking a warm bath is recommended as it opens the pores of the body. Abhyanga or self-massage is recommended to remove toxins and reduce dosha imbalance.
The diet to be followed depends on the season. Some of the dietary recommendations are:
Using honey mixed with juice or taken directly.
Using garlic with food or eaten raw is helpful.
Eating Amla (gooseberry) is recommended so the body gets Vitamin C.
Ginger, cumin, garlic, and curry leaves can be added as spices while cooking.
