Gustatory rhinitis is a kind of non allergic and non inflammatory rhinitis in which the symptoms of rhinorrhoea are produced after in taking of the food. Food can be of any category but foods which are spicy and hot produce more symptoms than the food which are not spicy and hot like breads. It is not related with the sex, age etc but mostly seen in the patients of the age 20-60 years of the age. In ayurveda, rhinitis can be correlated by pratishyaya . It is widely explained in ayurvedic texts. The elimination of the kapha  doshas through the nose is known as pratishyaya, which occurs due to imbalance in all the three doshas. The region above the clavicle is known to have dominant kapha dosha thus the predominant involved dosha is kapha dosha.

Alternative Treatment for Allergic Bronchopulmonary Aspergillosis (ABPA)


Allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA) is a kind of lung disorder that affects some people who are allergic to a fungus called Aspergillus (generally Aspergillus fumigatus). ABPA can potentially damage the lungs because it can lead to Bronchiectasis, a condition that can cause airway inflammation and obstruction. ABPA can be effectively managed in a safe and timely manner with the help of herbal products available from Planet Ayurveda herbal manufacturing company.

Allergic Bronchopulmonary Aspergillosis (ABPA): Introduction (الحساسية داء الرشاشيات القصبي الرئوي)

Allergic Bronchopulmonary Aspergillosis (ABPA) is a fungal infection of the lungs. The condition is essentially an allergic reaction resulting from a hypersensitive response of the body’s immune system to the fungus Aspergillus (commonly called mold) which is found in the environment. The Aspergillus fungus is usually found in the soil, dust, dead leaves, water, compost piles, and marijuana, as well as in certain foods and ground spices. The spores of the fungus are extremely small particles that can float in the air. The spores can be inhaled from the air by many people but without any health problems. However, in people affected by ABPA, the spores of Aspergillus fungus (normally Aspergillus fumigates) trigger an allergic reaction due to which the immune system overreacts to the fungus, thereby resulting in lung inflammation.

Signs and Symptoms of Allergic Bronchopulmonary

The exaggerated response of the immune system to Aspergillus fungus mostly occurs in people suffering from asthma, chronic infections, or cystic fibrosis. ABPA can lead to tightening of airway muscles (bronchospasm) because of airway inflammation which dilates the airways. The condition can also result in mucus buildup which can cause cough and breathing problems. Over a period of time, ABPA can cause damage to sensitive lung tissues, and can even lead to scarring.

Allergic Bronchopulmonary Aspergillosis (ABPA): Symptoms

Some of The Signs and Symptoms of Allergic Bronchopulmonary Aspergillosis (ABPA) are

  • Frequent coughing
  • Episodic wheezing
