In our previous blogs we discussed, Asthma causes, symptoms, and home remedies as per the ”Asthma ka Ayurvedic Upchar.” It is a chronic respiratory disease that affects multiple organs’ functioning, including the heart, lungs, liver, and kidneys. As the afflicted reaches different stages, the risks for renal and cardiovascular morbidities will progressively increase. The most prominent symptoms are feeble breathing, wheezing, unstoppable coughing, and chest pain. However, these symptoms have a different frequency at different stages. Being said that, we will now exactly discuss the same throughout this blog of the series “Asthma ka Ayurvedic Upchar.”
Asthma is becoming common these days because of different reasons that may include the causes of increasing environmental pollution, allergies, and smoking. The appearances of symptoms differ at each stage and have four classifications, such as:

But with the help of Ayurvedic asthma home remedies for adults discussed in our previous blogs will prevent the use of inhalers and other pills.

The respiratory disease is becoming common these days because of inter-related organ defects, pollution, poor food choices, and different types of allergies. All these may have a cure in the best Ayurvedic remedies for adults. The system of gas exchange involving specific organs in animals and plants is known as the respiratory system. Prana energy is a requirement for human anatomy that interconnects this exchange and healthy functioning of the airways. Air (oxygen) comes through the respiratory system gates with small particles and releases pre-existing air (carbon dioxide). For Ayurveda, the disorders seen in this particular system develop due to an imbalance in two energies, Kapha and Vatta.
In particular, respiratory system disorders result from Avalambaka Kapha dosha controlling the lungs, heart, and the entire respiratory system. It controls the flow of air in and out of the body. Any interruption in function can result in various diseases and disorders, such as bronchitis, pneumonia, COPD, Asthma, seasonal allergies, and acute kidney diseases. Ayurvedic experience ensures the healthy well-being of the said organs with an amalgamation of natural resources. Lifestyle and dietary modifications are the key features of Ayurveda to maintain overall health. Thankfully, the treatment of these diseases is in the hands of the Ayurvedacharyas, who insist on repairing the system’s basic properties. Ayurveda is a medicine that cures damage and diseases only with herbal medicines and physical activities like yoga and meditation.
