Ayurvedic Perspective of Eosinophilic Lung Disease/Pulmonary Eosinophilia


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.


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.

Eosinophilic lung disease


The causes of Pulmonary eosinophilia include various things depending upon the type. As it is generally divided into three types that are idiopathic which have unknown causes, the second one is secondary pulmonary eosinophilia which includes the causes such as certain drugs, parasites, allergies, etc. The last type is eosinophilic vasculitis in which inflammation of blood vessels occurs that prevents the blood flow which further causes the damage to the tissues and vital organs mainly occurs due to allergies and asthma.

Following are some of the common drugs and infections that can lead to Pulmonary Eosinophilia.

Diagnosis of Pulmonary Eosinophilia includes a complete history with clinical evaluation and various laboratory tests. Also a physical examination is to be done which on rule out will come out with a wheezing sound in lungs. Various imaging techniques play an important role in ruling out pulmonary eosinophilia. Chest x – ray and CT scan is one of the most important tests to be done. Another test of bronchoalveolar lavage is needed for clearing the doubt in diagnosis. Blood tests are generally done to rule out the number of eosinophils and analysis of sputum is also important for evaluating the presence of any of the possible parasites.


Ayurveda Eosinophilic Lung Disease / Pulmonary eosinophilia can be correlated to Pranavaha sroto dushti. Before studying what is Pranavaha sroto dushti let us discuss what is pranavaha srotas.

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

Causes of vitiation of Pranavaha Srotas

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).

Symptoms of vitiation of Pranavaha Srotas

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