Ayurvedic Treatment of Allergic Bronchitis

Allergic bronchitis, also known as chronic bronchitis, is a critical condition that doesn’t go away on its own and reoccurs. It persists for months or maybe years and, if not treated timely, can gravely impact your life causing havoc. Any person can suffer from allergic bronchitis irrespective of their age. Often, people resort to allopathic treatment to overcome it. But allopathic inhalers, bronchodilators, antibiotics or steroids pose several side effects and just suppress the symptoms for a while. They don’t cure the allergy by its roots so the person is likely to suffer from allergic bronchitis yet again which is not only troublesome but a sheer wastage of time and resources as well!

 

What is Allergic Bronchitis?

Allergic Bronchitis is the inflammation of the airways in the lungs due to allergy particles. While breathing, allergens such as dust, pollens, molds, etc enter your nose and some of them may drain down into your lungs. When your body is hypersensitive, it produces allergic reactions upon coming in contact with these allergens. This causes irritation and swelling of your bronchial tubes which carry air to and from your lungs. Also, you are more likely to suffer from allergic bronchitis if you are already suffering from nasal allergy i.e. allergic rhinitis.

It is characterized by fatigue, chest discomfort, shortness of breath, wheezes in the chest and persistent cough with phlegm. This disease is mostly associated with sneezing, stuffy or blocked nose, watery eyes or nose, ringing sound in the ears, secretions running down the throat, etc.

Ayurvedic Perspective Of Allergic Bronchitis

 

Charak Chikitsa Sthan and Sushruta Uttar Sthan have full Adhaya or chapters devoted to chest diseases. Kasa Roga i.e. cough has been mentioned with diversified variety of Kas Rog. Depending on different types of symptoms, it is indicated by distinct causes. Chikitsa i.e. treatment of every sort of Kas has been specially given. Swas Rog i.e. difficulty in breathing due to chest diseases or some allergies have been stated. Amongst the diversified kinds of Swas Rog, Tamak Shwas has been compared with bronchial asthma.Hiccoughs i.e. Hikka Roga has also been stated along with these illnesses. Most of the above listed diseases are caused by aggravation of Pranvayu and when it tries to come out of the mouth with pressure, a sound of Hik Hik is produced or the patient coughs persistently by swallowing phlegm due to which he faces difficulty in breathing.
