Ayurvedic Perspective On Respiratory Disorders

Ayurveda refers to breathing problems as Swasa Roga in Ayurveda. These disorders involve the Vata and Kapha Doshas. Vata Dosha is cold, rough, and dry while the Kapha Dosha is cold, heavy, and slimy.  The root of the imbalance of these two Doshas starts in the digestive system called the Kledaka Kapha. This moves to the lungs and creates a problem. When the lungs get blocked and clogged it causes bronchitis. An increase in the Pitta Dosha reduces the excessive Kapha Dosha and helps the body to decongest the respiratory system. So Ayurvedic medicine for respiratory problems addresses how to balance Pitta and Kapha Doshas. So, we see that as per Ayurveda, lung issues originate in the digestive system. 

The treatment of breathing problems starts by ensuring that the digestive fire Agni is at its strongest.  Weak or inefficient digestion causes the formation of the metabolic waste called Ama. Ayurveda refers to bronchial asthma as Tamaka Swasa. The causes are excessive Kapha Dosha aggravating foods, suppression of natural urges, cold climate, excessive exercise or sexual activity, allergens, or physical trauma to the throat or chest. Ayurvedic medication for breathing problems is supported with diet advice in order to maintain proper digestion as well as a balance of the Doshas. The strength of the Agni or digestive fire is improved to ensure proper metabolism. 

Asthmatic bronchitis is treated with a holistic view according to Ayurveda. Ayurveda defines five Koshas in a person; the Anamaya Kosha (the physical body), Manomaya Kosha (the mind), Vijnanamaya Kosha (the psyche), Pranaymaya Kosha (the breath body), and the Anandamay Kosha (the bliss body).  When there is a balance between these Koshas, a person is in overall good health. Asthma is the result of a disturbance of all the Koshas. The Prana gets blocked causing the breathing difficulties that are characterised by asthma. It can also be aggravated or triggered by psychological or emotional issues. So, Ayurveda recommends that only medication is not enough to manage asthma. The patient should be taught to destress and counselled to maintain a balanced mind and emotions. 

 

Respiratory Disorders - An Overview 

Respiratory Disorders defines coughs and colds as an immune system reaction to infection. When there are cold viruses in the respiratory tract they irritate the lining and cause cough and cold as well as excessive mucus causing running nose and sneezing. A cough is a reflex reaction that the body performs to expel irritants or foreign particles that are in the airway. The lining of the airways get irritated by mucus and trigger this reflex cough. The mucus irritates the nerve endings and the patient develops a productive cough. 

The inflammation in the bronchial tubes causes bronchitis and is usually caused by viruses. Pneumonia can be caused by bacteria, fungi, or viruses causing infection in the lungs. 

Cough and cold are treated with decongestants, anti-inflammatories, cough suppressants, and expectorants. Asthma cannot be cured and is managed with inhaled doses of corticosteroids (ICS) to control inflammation,  long-acting bronchodilators (LABA), and anticholinergic agents or antimuscarinic agents. Colds and coughs are treated with a range of anti-inflammatory medicine, decongestants, cough suppressants, and expectorants.
