A case study of successful Ayurveda management in the patient of Shwasa (asthma)
Asthma is a chronic disease of the air passages of the lungs which inflames and narrows them during the attacks of asthma. It is a condition marked by recurrent attacks of dyspnea, with airway inflammation and wheezing due to spasmodic constriction of the bronchi. According to Ayurveda, Shwasa disease is caused mainly due to the obstruction in the Pranavaha, Udakavaha and Annavaha Srotasa (channels). The Vata and Kapha Doshas are mainly vitiated in this condition. A case study of a male patient suffering from chronic Asthma along with symptoms like sneezing, fatigue, and loss of enthusiasm has been presented. The successful intervention in the form of herbal remedies, home remedies, Marma Chikitsa and the proper diet and lifestyle was given to the patient. There was a considerable reduction in the symptoms of the patient with this treatment protocol and the patient was able to stop the steroid treatment that he was taking for this condition.
