Alternative Medicines for Asthma Treatment – Respiratory Disorder


Respiratory problems are very scary and need very good management to evaluate choking chances due to any mistake. Asthma is a very hampering respiratory disorder that needs immediate management to avoid its complications. It usually begins in early childhood itself, but can also develop in people of any age group. Asthma attacks can be severe and life-threatening that must need immediate management. Long-term modern medicines usage can be replaced by ayurvedic medications under good supervision, which is explained in detail in the following article along with possible causes, and symptoms of asthma disease.


Asthma or Bronchial asthma is a chronic respiratory condition that is associated with many abnormal respiratory tract problems. The bronchial lining and the respiratory tract lining become inflamed during an asthmatic attack which makes it harder for the person to breathe normally and has to take deep breaths and has to try harder to take a breath.


Types of Asthma

Depending upon the studied cases, the two types of asthma are-

  • Childhood asthma – that could be possibly due to genetic causes.
  • Adult onset asthma – that also includes asthma due to excessive physical work like- exercise induced asthma and occupational asthma.

Bronchodilators also commonly known as Air pumps are used for quick relief that dilate the pathway by reducing the inflammation in the respiratory pathway due to any sudden trigger factor. Trigger factors are many for the asthmatic person, which includes allergic reactions to various items including dust, pollens, or any food item. Severe cases of asthma would require longer acting inhalers (that may contain steroids) to keep airways open. But, Ayurveda provides steroids free, chemical free, toxins free, herbal management for asthma patients.

Ayurvedic Aspect

In Ayurveda Asthma is correlated to “Tamak Swasa roga” in which vatadi dosha imbalance causes the problem in breathing. Kapha dosha causes asthmatic conditions along with vata dosha imbalance. Excess kapha in the body causes cough and indirected vayu causes difficulty in breathing. The wrong diet and lifestyle trigger the symptoms of the disease. There are two types of Tamak swasa (Bronchial asthma) according to Ayurveda texts-

  1. Pratamak Swasa (Bronchial asthma with superimposed infection)
  2. Santamak swasa (Tropical Eosinophilia)

In Ayurveda this swas roga is said to be very difficult to treat and needs a very long and correct medication and environment to be controlled and recovered. As a small triggering factor can destroy the maintenance of airways for a very long time. To manage the abnormal symptoms of this respiratory disorder proper medications along with the right diet and lifestyle are mandatory.
