1. Do saline gargles. 2. Whenever possible do steam inhalation also. 3. Cover your nose and mouth with hanky for at least 30 sec when you go in dusty areas also when you go in and out of AC. As our nose is the most sensitive part of our body, When there is temperature difference between two rooms or inside n outside, then if we not protect our nose, it gets affected. 4. Drink Hot Liquids --Hot liquids relieve nasal congestion, prevent dehydration, and soothe the uncomfortably inflamed membranes that line your nose and throat. 5. Sleep With an Extra Pillow Under Your Head-- Elevating your head will help relieve congested nasal passages. If the angle is too awkward, try placing the pillows between the mattress and the box springs to create a more gradual slope. Homeopathic treatment has very encouraging results.

Hi lybrate-user, yes in ayurveda has permanent solution for asthma. For regular sneezing is due to allergy. Don’t worry ayurveda can help you to cure allergy, you have to improve your immunity. Allergy is a disorder in which the body becomes hypersensitive to particular antigens which provokes characteristic symptoms whenever they are subsequently encounter, whether inhaled, ingested, infected or otherwise contacted. Normally antibodies in the blood stream and tissues react with and destroy specific antigen without further trouble. Different allergies afflict different tissues and may have either local or general effects. When a person's routine life is disturbed, he gets disturbed and agitated and functioning of endocrine glands gets adversely affected which ultimately causes, at time allergic reaction/metabolic changes. You should avoid urad, banana, oil fried food spices. Saline water gargle should be done before meals. Non-irritating and bland diet, hot water, lemon, green and leafy vegetables particularly having sour and bitter taste. You can also doing this at home: 6-7 basil leaves 5-6 cloves (powder) 2-3 black piper 1/4 teaspoon ginger paste all this add in 150 ml of water then boiling mild flame and reduce to 100 ml. Later filtered and allowed to warm o it's own. Then add 2 teaspoon of honey and drink. It gives you relieved.

Asthma - Can Lifestyle Alterations Help To Manage?

Asthma - Can Lifestyle Alterations Help To Manage?

Asthma is an inflammatory disease, which affects the airways of your lungs (respiratory tract that pumps oxygen into the lungs). It is long term in nature. It is characterized by shortness of breath, coughing and wheezing. It occurs a few times a day or a few times a week depending on the person it affects. Sometimes it worsens during the night.

What triggers Asthma?

  1. Airborne particles such as dust mites, mold spores, pollen and cockroach waste.
  2. Infections in the respiratory system such as common cold.
  3. Cold air can also trigger asthma.
  4. Physical or outdoor activities which make you pant such as running, skipping, jogging and jumping can cause shortness of breath, thus triggering asthma.
  5. Pollutants and irritants in the air such as smoke.
  6. Some medications can also trigger asthma.
  7. Stress and nervous attacks (panic attacks) also trigger asthma.

How to manage asthma better by changing your lifestyle:

  1. Try to avoid keeping animals in your houses such as dogs, cats and rabbits. Many times animal fur, waste, urine and saliva contains particles which can cause allergic reactions and make you cough uncontrollably. This, in turn, triggers asthma attacks. If you have pets try keeping them away from your bedroom.
  2. Dust mites also cause allergies which trigger asthma. So wash your carpets, rugs, bed-linen and pillowcases in hot water.
  3. Bugs and insects such as cockroaches are not only unhygienic but can also trigger asthma. Cockroach droppings near your bed, kitchen and food are dangerous and you should call an exterminator to get rid of these bugs.
  4. Sometimes, heavy fragrance also aggravates your respiratory tract and triggers shortness of breath. Avoid using heavy perfumes, deodorants and room fresheners.
  5. Pollution also triggers asthma. Dust particles come out from the vehicles and mix with the air. If this air is inhaled, it might trigger uncontrollable asthma. So try to cover your mouth with a cloth when you step out of your house.

Asthma can be very severe and can bring many hurdles in your day to day activities. Changing your lifestyle and certain habits can reduce asthma to a great extent.

Asthma & Sadovaman - All About It!

Asthma & Sadovaman - All About It!

Asthma refers to a respiratory disorder, characterized by narrowing of the airways. This occurs when your body responds to a trigger, say allergens, exposure to cold air, heavy workout, or emotional stress. 

What causes asthma?

According to Ayurveda, asthma occurs when the airways become narrow and eventually get blocked due to the accumulation of Kapha. As the airflow to the lungs is interrupted, as a person experiences difficulty breathing. 

Asthma is caused due to excessive intake of cold (Vata) and consumption of foods that aggravate Kapha, weakening of the lung tissues and health problems resulting from lung diseases. 

Ayurveda considers poor digestion a major cause for asthma. A weak digestive system leads your body to become oversensitive to pollen, dust, and other substances that may trigger an asthma attack. Deposits of mucus (ama) in the respiratory tract or lungs may obstruct breathing and cause coughing or wheezing

Ayurvedic Approach to Asthma -

Ayurvedic treatment for asthma aims to restore digestion with natural remedies and therapy combined with lifestyle changes and the right diet. The medicines work on cleansing the toxins from your body and pacifying Kapha. 

One of the best approaches to cure asthma in Ayurveda is Vamana therapy. It is one of the Panchakarma therapies in Ayurveda. Vamana refers to therapeutic vomiting – a medicated emesis. The treatment aims to remove toxins from the gastrointestinal and respiratory tract. 

Since Kapha is located in the chest region, it is easy to expel it orally. To do so, the Kapha dosha first needs to be brought forcefully from the extremities and organs into the stomach, before vomiting is induced.

The Steps to the Procedure - 

  • Before Vamana therapy is induced, the individual is asked to consume foods that are likely to aggravate Kapha dosha – yogurt, basmati rice, and sweets – a night before. This is done to increase Kapha so that it forcefully gets eliminated from your system completely. 

  • The next day, a drink prepared from certain drugs – licorice, calamus root tea, madanphala is given to induce vomiting. This triggers vomiting in patients. 

  • Once the whole Kapha is expelled outside, the person feels a lot better and lighter 

Following the Vamana therapy, patients are advised to rest and consume light food. You might be prescribed to do fasting, as the entire procedure undergoes heavy work. 

Vamana therapy in Ayurveda is highly effective in treating asthma and several other conditions. The therapy helps ease asthma symptoms – a patient might feel tightness in the chest after undergoing therapy. Moreover, it clears the sinuses and offers relief from breathlessness, wheezing and congestion.

Apart from therapy and herbal remedies, focus on improving your diet plan and practice certain asanas to avoid asthma attacks in the near future.

Asthma - Its Causes & Homeopathic Medicines!

Asthma - Its Causes & Homeopathic Medicines!

Asthma is a condition that severely affects the lungs. The airways become narrow and the lungs become inflamed. Its characteristic features include bronchospasm, reversible airflow obstruction and variable and recurring symptoms such as coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath and chest tightness. This might be caused up to 2 to 3 times a day.

Causes:

  1. Daily use of Paracetamol
  2. Vaccines
  3. Daily use of antibiotics
  4. Cesarean sections
  5. Asthma in family

Asthma is usually triggered by:

  1. Tobacco Smoke
  2. Exercise
  3. Polluted or Poor air
  4. Cold Air
  5. Emotional Stress
  6. Allergies

Homeopathy is a system of medicine which tries to ‘cure’ this disease, instead of trying to provide symptomatic relief. While dealing with a case of asthma, a homeopath not only records the symptoms of the disease but also studies the medical history, family history, physical and psychological characteristics of a person. This helps to find the cause, the precipitating factors, and the hereditary tendency etc. Of special interest to a homeopath is the history of suppression of skin disease. Homeopaths believe that when there is a tendency or predisposition for a disease – it first manifests on the less vital organs, towards the periphery (like skin). If this manifestation is suppressed than the disease shifts inwards, towards the more vital organs (like lungs, heart, brain, etc).

The fact that in children asthma is often preceded by eczema is observed by the allopaths also. This fact is written in all their textbooks of medicine. They say that children often ‘move-out’ of eczema and ‘move-into’ asthma. But they are unable to make a correlation. Homeopaths believe that the suppression of eczema with topical preparations, does not cure the disease/sensitivity of the person, it merely drives it inwards.

Now after ascertaining the symptoms and the cause, the homeopath tries to find a medicine which matches the symptoms as well as the general characteristics of the person. The medicine so selected is administered to the patient.

When a right medicine is given, asthma disappears but old eczema or skin rash reappears for some time, before finally disappearing itself. This reappearance of old symptoms is seen as a reversal of disease process and is considered a very good prognostic sign by homeopaths.

MEDICINES – There are lots of medicines in homeopathy for asthma symptoms and it is not possible to list them all here. Some of the common medicines are ars- alb, ipecac, lachesis, pulsatilla, spongia, sulphur, ignatia, antim-tart, hepar-sulph, nat-sulph, tuberculinum, etc. The selection of medicine varies from patient to patient. Therefore, it is always recommended to consult a specialized homeopath for treating your individual case.

Homeopathy To Rescue The Prevalent Asthma!

Homeopathy To Rescue The Prevalent Asthma!

Asthma is a chronic respiratory condition. In asthma, the airway routes of the lungs get swollen. This causes irritation and gives rise to swelling inside these routes. For some people, a chilly climate comes with its own share of troubles and pain. Individuals who are sensitive to chilly temperatures are significantly influenced by this season. Various climate extremes and changing temperatures affect their health. For those who are hypersensitive to dust, their condition tends to rise during certain weather conditions. Their symptoms include coughing, sniffling, stuffiness and even breathing problems. It is an undeniable issue that can pose a serious danger to a person’s health.

Homeopathic solutions for asthma and these allergic conditions are exceptionally powerful and can cure them during any season. Yet, these medicines must necessarily be prescribed by a doctor. Homeopathic drugs are normal prescriptions and work by directing the immune system, which generally tends to be distinctly over-reactive during allergies and asthma. These are as follows:

  1. Arsenic album: It is one of the best homeopathic medicines for asthma due to anxiety, especially when there are extreme anxiety and uneasiness with cough and wheezing. The person cannot find a comfortable position and continues twisting and turning. The patients experience increased thirst yet only drink a little at once. Breathing becomes more difficult at midnight and resting is troublesome as they cannot inhale and feel choked.
  2. Ipecac: It is one of the best homeopathic solutions for asthma with nausea. In case of vomiting with asthma attacks, Ipecac is one of the best homeopathic solutions for that. There is steady nausea to such an extent that the person may feel nauseated all the time.
  3. Antim tart: It is one of the best homeopathic medicines for breathing allergies with coughing. In situations where there is rattling cough as though the chest is filled with mucous, Antrim tart is one of the best homeopathic medications for asthma. Even eating activates the cough. There are sluggishness and weakness. It is more suited for old individuals and young kids.
  4. Nux vomica: It is one of the best homeopathic medicines for breathing problems from gastric aggravation. In situations where the asthmatic attack is activated by gastric aggravation, Nux vomica is one of the best homeopathic solutions. The issue is probably going to be more terrible in the morning. There is a feeling of being full in the stomach alongside asthma. There is dry and continuous coughing.
  5. Carbo veg: It is one of the best homeopathic medications for asthma with blueness of the face. At the point when the face of the patient gets to be distinctly somewhat blue alongside an asthmatic attack, Carbo veg is one of the best homeopathic medications. There is the coldness of the hands and feet. Stomach problems may happen with respiratory indications. The issue gets worse at night.

These are only indicative medicines, however, one must consult a homeopathic doctor in order to, take the correct medicine.

If the angle is too awkward, try placing the pillows between the mattress and the box springs to create a more gradual slope. 6. Treat that stuffy nose with warm salt water-- salt-water rinsing helps break nasal congestion, while also removing virus particles and bacteria from your nose. 7. Blow your nose often (and the right way)-- it's important to blow your nose regularly when you have a cold rather than sniffling mucus back into your head. But when you blow hard, pressure can carry germ-carrying phlegm back into your ear passages, causing earache. The best way to blow your nose: press a finger over one nostril while you blow gently to clear the other. Take anim tar 30/ 4 times for 2 days only. Homeopathic treatment has very encouraging results. Consult online for details.
