Ayurvedic Treatments for Asthma. What are the symptoms and causes of asthma?

Ayurvedic Asthma Relief


Asthma is a chronic condition wherein the airways become narrow and inflamed and can cause difficulty in breathing. It may also cause chest pain, cough and wheezing. It is a major global health problem and affects all age groups irrespective of sex and economic status. 

Modern medicine recommends rescue and controller inhalers (steroids). But the long-term use of these inhalers has undesirable side effects like coughing, sore throats, lung damage and oral thrush (a fungal infection).


The common symptoms of Asthma are:

  • Wheezing
  • Coughing
  • Shortness of breath and 
  • Chest tightness

According to Ayurveda, the factors that cause Asthma are as follows:

  • Exposure to dust, smoke and wind
  • Living in cold areas
  • Intake of cold food and drinks
  • Excessive exercise or work
  • Heavy diet
  • Suppression of natural urges
  • Trauma to throat, chest and vital organs.

There are several types of Asthma:

  1. Adult-onset Asthma, 
  2. Allergic Asthma 
  3. Asthma-COPD overlap 
  4. Exercise-induced Bronchoconstriction
  5. Non-allergic Asthma and 
  6. Occupational Asthma.
