Asthma Treatment in Ayurveda

Asthma is a kind of disease in which inflammation of the bronchial tubes occurs. It leads to sticky secretion inside the tubes. People who have been suffering with Asthma experience that their airways tighten, get inflamed and filled with mucus during an attack. The exact cause of asthma is unknown.. A weak immune system is often thought of to be a contributing factor.

Ayurvedic View

Asthma is well documented in ancient ayurvedic texts. In sanskrit, asthma is known as swasa roga. Swasa means “breathing in and out, ” and roga means “ disease.” According to the ancient ayurvedic text, the charak samhita, there are five types of asthma: maha swasa, urdhva swasa, chinna swasa, tamaka swasa & kshudra swasa. Among these five types first three are not curable. ‘Tamak-shwas is controllable and is difficult to cure. The last one is curable.


While there is no medication that can fully cure asthma, there are two general classes of asthma medications: quick-relief and long-term control medications. Generally short-acting, inhaled bronchodilators and anti-inflammatories herbal medicines are used to relieve occasional mild asthma symptoms as they occur. Bronchodilators work by opening up or dilating constricted airways, while anti-inflammatories reduce inflammation.


In this process, we give herbal and herbo-mineral medicines to the patients. The whole crux is to pacify the doshas instead of expelling them.


Shodhan is is performed with various panchkarma therapies like Vaman, virechan, Nasyam etc. These are selected after understanding patient’s body type, symptoms etc.
