Ayurveda defines breathing problems as Vata and Kapha related problems. Respiratory trouble is called Swasa Roga. The Kapha Dosha is cold and slimy while the Vata Dosha is cold and dry in nature. The imbalance of these two Doshas starts in the digestive system and then moves to the lungs causing respiratory issues. The Kapha Dosha, the Kledaka Kapha when thrown out of balance causes the blocking of the lungs causing bronchitis. The decongestion caused by the Kapha Dosha is counteracted by increasing the Pitta Dosha in the body.
Ayurveda looks at the treatment of asthma in a holistic manner. There are Doshas defined by Ayurveda that encompass the physical, mental, psyche, breath and bliss bodies. When these Doshas are in good balance, the person is in good health. Unbalanced Doshas cause problems like asthma. Asthma is the inability of the breath body or the life force Prana to move. So, when a person has asthma they are to be treated and supported not just by medication but also with psychological support. They are counselled to be able to handle all the negative emotions or depression that might be the trigger for asthma. A patient being treated for asthma has to be encouraged to maintain a positive outlook.
Cold or cough cause inflammation resulting in a sore throat and running nose. The mucus in the respiratory tract irritates the nerves in the lining and triggers a cough. The inflammation of the bronchial tubes causes bronchitis. Lung infections such as pneumonia are caused by viruses or bacteria. These problems are treated symptomatically. A non-viral infection would be treated with antibiotics. Colds and coughs are treated with anti-inflammatories, decongestants, cough suppressants and expectorants. Asthma is not curable and is managed with corticosteroids (ICS), long-acting bronchodilators (LABA), anticholinergic agents, antimuscarinic agents, corticosteroids and systemic steroids.
