Chest Congestion - Causes And Ayurvedic Remedies!

Chest Congestion - Causes And Ayurvedic Remedies!

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. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an ayurveda.

There is absence of semen production in one testicle from 2 3 years. Is it a some kind of blockage? Is Gyming is responsible behind this condition.? Can it be cured? According to you will I have to go through operation for this?

Diploma in Obstetrics & Gynaecology, MBBS
General Physician, Delhi
Gymning, smoking, constant exposure to hot weather, constant pressure due to illfitting inners do bring down sperm count, no operation is needed, if your counts are low, try modification of lifestyle & medicines are given only if there is difficulty to conceive by woman. There is a blockage which is doctor made, on both sides - vesectomy operation for family planning or some injury or some illness like mumps suffered during childhood. Get a semen test done to reassure yourself.

Hi doctor. A while ago I feel my heart beat very fast . It was like a minute . Not to any physical activity . I was just sitting and suddenly I felt.

PGD Maternal Child Health, MBBS
General Physician, Akola
The beating of heart is decided by the S A Node which itself is controlled by nerves and hormones from the brain. At times due to imbalance in sympathetic and its opposite para sympathetic tones the heart may beat at higher or lower rates. There need not be something abnormal if this is an isolated occurrence, but if this is repeated often then proper investigations are advised.

My triglycerides level was 291 before 10 days when I checked my lipid profile. So Dr. suggest me to take roseday f 5.and I am taking that drug after dinner. Now my question is that can I take whisky when I am taking this drug? Is it harmful for me? Pls suggest.

PGDD, RD, Bachelor of Home Science
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
Hi. thankyou for the query. Alcohol will not only interact with your medication but it will also increase your triglyceride levels further. Please avoid alcohol before it further complicates your condition. Just taking medication will not solve your problem. You need to improve your diet and lifestyle.

Dear lybrate-user, This is a pediatric condition. These kind of defects may close on their own in due course of time. Often, care is required with no specific medicine based treatment. Depending on the age and other conditions of the baby, surgery is either a MUST or need not be done at all. You can take a second opinion with the specialist at the Medical College at Midnapore itself. Regards.
