Asthma & Ayurveda - Maharishi Ayurveda Hospital



If vata predominantly associated with kapha, obstructs the channels of circulation and circulates all over the body then being itself obstructed in the circulatory course this aggravated vayu causes svasa (asthma)
According to Ayurveda five types of svasa are there - Maha Svasa, Urdhva Svasa, Chinna Svasa, Tamaka Svasa (Pratamaka and Santamaka) and Ksudra Svasa.

First three types of svasa are inherently incurable and patients suffering from these ailments succumb to death instantaneously.

Tamak Svasa – vayu moving in the reverse order pervades the channels, afflicts the neck & head and stimulates phlegm to cause rhinitis, produces wheezing sound, dyspnoea, starts coughing, feels restless until the phlegm does not come out, mouth becomes dry etc. It is of two types Pratamaka – Pittak gets aggravated resulting in fever & fainting. It gets aggravated in darkness & gets alleviated by cooling regi-mens.

Santamaka – If patient feels as if submerged in darkness this condition is called Santamaka.

Kshudra Svasa – Vayu mildly aggravated in the koshtha due to exertion or ununctu-ous regimens causes mild dyspnoea.

Etiological factors of Svasa:

           Exposure to dust, smoke & wind
           Residing in cold places and use of cold water (drinks) etc. Vitiation of Ama
           Dryness of body
           Intake of curd & unboiled milk.
           Intake of abhishyandi food, which causes obstruction to the channels of circulation.
           Intake of kapha aggravating ingredients. Use of naturally contradictory ingredients.

These signs & symptoms of svasa can be related to bronchial asthma, as it is a chronic inflammatory disease of the airways characterized by recurrent episodes of airway obstruction and wheezing.

Asthomap is one of the wonderful Ayurveda products of Maharishi Ayurveda for Asthma. Asthomap from Maharishi Ayurveda Hospital is priced at Rs 200/- for 100 tablets.
