Asthma

Asthma is a respiratory disease that is characterized by narrowing of the airways. This happens when the body responses to a trigger such as exposure to cold air, allergens in the air, emotional stress or heavy exercise. When the airways narrow, patients show symptoms such as tightness of the chest, wheezing noise while breathing, coughing and shortness of breath. Asthma treatment at Jiva Ayurveda is completely personalized with customized medicines, diet and lifestyle.

Asthma is caused because of excessive intake of Vata (cold), consuming Kapha aggravating food items, weakening of the lung tissues, and problems caused by lung diseases. Environmental and lifestyle factors also play a role in asthma. Consuming cold or stale foods is not easy to digest and leads to the formation of ama (mucus) thereby causing a blockage in the respiratory channel and difficulty in breathing. Living in a cold and damp environment is also a reason for asthma.
