Asthma

Asthma is a condition in which human airways narrow and swell and may produce extra mucus. This can make breathing difficult and trigger coughing, a whistling sound (wheezing) when you breathe out and shortness of breath. Asthma treatment in Ayurveda is completely personalized with personalized medication, diet and lifestyle. Asthma is caused by consuming too much vata (cold), consuming kapha which makes food worse, weakening of lung tissue, and problems caused by lung disease. Environmental and lifestyle factors also play a role in asthma. Eating cold or stale foods is not easily digestible and causes ama (mucus) to form, causing airway blockage and difficulty in breathing.
