Treating Chest Congestion With Ayurveda

MD, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS), PGDEMS, DNHE, DYA
Ayurveda, Mumbai
Treating Chest Congestion With Ayurveda

Ayurveda is an ancient life science that originated in India. It recognises herbs as medicines and Yogic postures as well as lifestyle changes as the supporting factors in its medicinal field. It is called a life science because the basic mode of treatment is done by tweaking one's lifestyle in order to reach the root cause of the ailment, which will be cleared from one's life gradually. Congestion is recognised as the accumulation of too much mucus and fluid in your lungs and is usually born due to an imbalance of the Vata Dosha, as per Ayurveda. This congestion can happen in the nasal or respiratory passages.

Let us find out what else Ayurveda says about congestion:

  • Symptoms: The symptoms of congestion include a tickling sensation at the back of the throat as well as the nasal passages, depending on the exact area of the congestion. Also, severe headaches and wheezing along with laboured breathing and tightening of the chest can point at the presence of congestion. In very severe cases, the patient may also complain of blood discharge while coughing, high fever, rashes on the skin, neck stiffness and other such conditions. 
  • Causes: There are various causes of congestion. While infection, allergy and cold are some of the most common conditions that may cause congestion, it has also been seen that congestion may arise as a symptom of a more serious ailment. Asthma is one such respiratory ailment that causes swelling in the airways, which can give rise to congestion. Also, inflammation of the bronchial tube lining can cause this condition where a greenish discharge happens due to the viral nature of the condition. Pneumonia and tuberculosis are also ailments, which can cause severe and painful congestion. 
  • Remedies: As per Ayurveda, there are many remedies that can help in treating this condition. One can drink herbal tea all day as the anti-oxidants will help in flushing out all those toxins that are causing a painful build-up of mucus and fluids inside. Also, one can use essential oils like eucalyptus oil for inhalation, steaming and even massages. One must take care not to let this oil touch the hair as greying might happen. Yoga and aromatherapy can also be practiced so as to do away with congestion. Also, the patient can add a pinch of salt to a glass of warm water in order to do a saline water gargle which will eventually clear the air passages.

Taking care of one's diet is one of the most important parts of any treatment in Ayurveda. Ingesting warm liquids like milk and warm food can help in loosening and removing the mucus build up.

It appears your periods have messed up because of the different hormonal pills you have taken. I would advice you to wait patiently for this month . Also use another form of contraception like condoms if needed. If your periods fail to happen next month on the usual time then do a urine pregnancy test. If negative then consider regular contraceptive pill.

I had my periods two months back and since then i had no periods.I m now having watery discharge which has no smell .What is it?

Hello Dear,Periods occur when the egg formed during each menstrual cycle in the female body is not fertilized and hence ejected out of the reproductive system along with blood and several other tissue cells. The duration of each menstrual cycle is about 28 days Most women will experience their monthly period right from the time they are 13 to the time they are 50. For many women, their monthly period is nothing more than an annoyance; but other women may suffer some problems. Visit us at www.Malhotraayurveda.Com

Before it release I took outside of her vagina. Her period start 22 -24 Nov but till now it has not started. Is there any problem. Is there any chance of getting pregnant. How can I sure it? How can we avoid it? Please help me.

Yes there are chances of getting pregnant as preejaculate also has sperms. So to check pregnancy you can do home urine pregnancy test. Or you can go for blood test like bhcg.... If urine pregnancy test kit is positive, then you need to have ultrasound to confirm intrauterine pregnancy as now a days ectopic pregnancy is quite common. All the best.... To avoid future pregnancy you have got cafeteria choice like condom, Cu-t, ocps etc.... All the best

Do not worry. Tension ki koi baat nahi hai. 36 wks tak baby ki position change hoti rehti hai aur isme tension lene ki koi baat nahi hai. Agar baby is position ulti hi rehte hai 37 weeks ke baad bhi toh aapko cesarean karana pad sakta hai. Baby ko koi problem nahi hai. Ye normal hota hai.

My wife has saggy breasts. She is worried as she is only 24 (no child) and wants to know if this can be cured in anyway. Her height is 5ft and weight is 77 kg.

Vaidya Visharad
Ayurveda, Narnaul
Dear,God has made undoubtedly ladies lovely. Ladies with a legitimately shaped and proportionate body are truly engaging. Women with low breast size use armored bras or silicon-stuffed bras, and some even put cotton, paper or silicon extensions into their bras? bonnets to look sexier and have bigger breasts shape. An undersized-breasts woman keeps feeling anxious and uncomfortable anytime she gets undressed by her partner. Adding to that, she loses self esteem and confidence and this brings even more stress into the couple.

U should get ultrasound done immediately and then followed by d&c to find out the exact cause. And then treatment can be done. As there is obesity, you may be suffering from endometrial hyperplasia.

My wife is 5 months pregnant. Is it safe for her nd baby to travel 200 kms by car . Any precautions to be taken.

My wife is 5 months pregnant. Is it safe for her nd baby to travel 200 kms by car . Any precautions to be taken.
Yes. As long as you have a healthy pregnancy, it's fine to carry on driving while pregnant. However, in the last few months, your growing bump may make it more difficult to get in and out of the car. It may even start to get in the way of the steering wheel. As a result, you may prefer to stop driving towards the very end of your pregnancy. It's also worth noting that the tiredness and nausea you may be feeling in the first trimester can make it hard to concentrate. Be sure to take regular breaks, and only drive when you're feeling alert and well-rested. There's no reason not to travel by car when you're pregnant, but you may need plenty of toilet stops on a longer journey! As above, stretch your legs when you can and take plenty of breaks. If sitting in the car gives you back pain, try putting a cushion, foam wedge or rolled-up jumper in the small of your back. Adopt a few safety precautions for your peace of mind. Make sure you always have your mobile handy and, as you near your due date, take your pregnancy documents with you on long trips.

Yes it is! probably this is cervical factor infertility. You need to do a simple 7-14 day antibiotic course to finish the pelvic infection. Without that thin egg white discharge the sperms won't be able to climb up and reach the egg for pregnancy.
