Asthma Bronchitis

Asthma is characterised by difficulty in breathing, a sense of tightness, constriction around the chest, and a wheezing noise as the breath is expelled.


  • The small bronchial tubes which connect with the lungs are constricted due to swelling or accumulation of viscid phlegm in the main bronchi, hence the difficulty in inspiration and expiration. 
  • The attack of asthma may come without warning because of the hypersensitivity of the patient to certain substances like pollen, dust, emanations from certain animals like dogs and cats, certain foods to which the person is allergic and, of course, certain bacteria The attack of asthma comes on in the early morning when the patient suddenly wakes up with a feeling of apprehension and alarm. 
  • He sits up as the breathes! suddenly becomes impossible in a recumbent position. He may rush to open the window as it becomes impossible to breathe in a closed room. The attack may last for a few hours or a few days before it subsides and, in the early stages of the disease, it leaves the patient normal. It is only when it becomes chronic that he acquires a typical asthmatic look-a pale, van face and an emaciated body.
  • Asthma and bronchial asthma are similar diseases and the remedies are, therefore, common. Drugs administered for chronic cough and whooping cough may also provide some relief in cases of asthma. Bronchial asthma is known as Tomaka Shvasa in Ayurveda and is supposed to originate from afflictions of the stomach and the gastrointestinal tract. That is why in the preliminary stage of the disease or just before its onset, the patient complains of indigestion, constipation or diarrhea.

Remedies: Standard preparations for the complaint in Ayurveda are: Chyavanaprasha and Agastya Rasayana. The main ingredient of the former medicine is the lowly Amala, the richest source of Vitamin C in nature. A peculiarity of this fruit is that its Vitamin content is not lost by exposure to heat as is the case with other drugs and fruits. 

The latter preparation is indicated in cases of asthma where the patient is constipated in the particularly emaciated sufferers, Chyavanaprasha is the better remedy. Both the drugs can be taken in teaspoonful doses thrice a day, preferably before food is ingested. They are slow-acting remedies but are surer in their efficacy. In chronic cases, their effect is evident from the increasing gap between successive attacks.

Along with the remedies mentioned above, Sitopaladi Churna should be taken thrice or four times a day in one teaspoonful dose with honey. Since the drug is likely to cause irritation of the throat, it is better mixed with honey and taken as a linctus. Medicines containing minerals that are recommended in cases of asthma and bronchial asthma are SwashaKasa-Chintamani Rasa, Suvarna-Pushpasuga Rasa, and Kanakasava.

         The following prescriptions are of particular value:

  1. Vasa Churna 2gm  To be taken thrice daily with honey

  • Shukti Bhasma 12
  • Trikuti Churna 1gm

Old Gur 10gm

          Mustard Oil (Acharya Chakrapani 10 gm. has recommended this for poor patients. It should not be taken in hot weather.)

Bhurangi 2gm

  • Nagara   2gm. (should be ground into a paste with water and taken twice daily with warm water.)

  • The patient should be advised to avoid curd, buttermilk, banana, guava, and fried foods. Light food should be taken at night and all sour substances should be banned. Smoking is contraindicated and the consumption of liquor, if the patient is addicted to it, should be reduced to the minimum. Hard exercise and exposure to cold and dampness should be avoided.

  • Don’t smoke. Stay away from all kinds of smoke.

  • Relieve body aches by taking aspirin or acetaminophen.

  •  herbal teas or lemon water with 1-2 tablespoons of honey around things that irritate your airway (nose, throat, and lungs). Irritants can include dust, mold, pet dander, air pollution, smoke, and cleaners. If you catch a cold, get plenty of rest.
