Asthma-Dyspepsia-Difficulty in Breathing is a medical condition in which airways (or Bronchial Tubes which carry air into & out of lungs) in the lungs shrink (Spasms-Muscular Contractions) coupled with Swelling (Inflammation). This happens due inflammations and narrowing of the airways in the lungs.
Symptoms are Difficult Breathing, Intermittent-Constant Cough, Wheezing (While Exhaling), Chest Congestion, Trouble Sleeping, etc. symptoms are seen to increase during physical Labour-Exercising etc. Also, Infections (Such as Viral-Bacterial especially of Respiratory Tract) would worsen the symptoms.
Causes are still being researched, but Ageing, Smoking, Obesity, Pollution, (Mainly Air including Pollen, Dust Mites…), Infections (Such as Viral-Bacterial especially of Respiratory Tract), Drugs Side-Effects (Such as Beta Blockers which are used in High BP, Migraines and much more… or even Aspirin, or Painkillers…), Food Preservatives, Abdominal Disorders (GERD…), Chemicals found in Agricultural produce…are mostly responsible for this. For me, biggest reasons would still be Toxic Lifestyle-Eating Habits (http://www.stayhealthytill70.com/category/lifestyleandeatinghabits/).
So from what we have read above, Ayurvedically Asthma is simply accumulation of Kapha in Airways. Consuming too hot-cold liquids results in vitiation of Vata. Pitta Vitiation is visible as Inflammation of airways. The Patient feels relieved, as Kapha comes along with Cough. Allopathy says, Asthma has no cure, No Comments! AMA formation (Mostly due Mandagni) is the root cause for the condition which then Vitiates all Three Doshas. Also, as vociferously Allopathy says it has Genetic factors, I completely disagree – for me Genetic is something that comes with us from our Mother’s Womb!
