Ayurvedic Perspective of Eosinophilic Lung Disease/Pulmonary Eosinophilia

Abstract

Eosinophilic lung disease/ pulmonary eosinophilia is a condition in which basically there is the accumulation of eosinophils in the pulmonary pathway due to any of the associated conditions such as various infections, allergies, parasites, malignancies, autoimmune processes, obstructive lung diseases and various others. Lungs are considered as one of the most important organs for life as it supports our breathing. As each cell of the body needs an abundance of oxygen for living, that is only possible if our lungs work properly. The oxygen gets exchanged with the carbon dioxide present in the cells of the body which is the waste and can be eliminated with the help of lungs. So it is important to keep lungs healthy for maintaining overall health of the body. Let’s discuss further all the details of pulmonary eosinophilia and its ayurvedic management.

INTRODUCTION

Pulmonary Eosinophilia / Eosinophilic lung disease is a condition that is associated with the lodgement of the eosinophils in the lungs and the respiratory tract. This can occur due to any of the pathologies caused in the respiratory tract which further leads to an increase in the eosinophil and its accumulation. Eosinophils are a type of white blood cell and are part of the immune system. Eosinophils are usually built up with the reaction to any kind of infection, inflammation and allergen in the respiratory tract. As per ayurveda it can be correlated to the pranavaha sroto dushti, further we are going to discuss the causes, symptoms and diagnosis of Pulmonary Eosinophilia.

These channels originate from hridya (heart) and rasa vahini dhamanis (the channels in our body that transports nutrients to all body parts.

Kshaya (depletion of tissues), veg vdharana (suppressing natural urges), ruksha ahara sewan (intake of dry food items), vyama abhyasa with kshudha (exercise on hunger), ati shasa (working more than  one’s physical capacity).

Prolonged breathing, shortness of breath, difficult breathing, intermittent breathing, abnormal sounds during breathing, painful breathing.
