Tamaka Shwasa , Bronchial Asthma, Bharangi Churna, Sunthi Churna


Tamaka  Shwasa  may  be  correlated  with  Bronchial  Asthma on  the  basis of its  features  & Etiopathogenesis. It is considered as Yapya (palliable) because this type of Shwasa roga is not only difficult to treat but also has a repetitive nature. In India bronchial asthma is major health problem and hyperventilation, cold air, tobacco smoke, dust, respiratory viral infections, emotional stress, aspirin, beta blockers are some of the trigging factors. The prevalence of Bronchial Asthma is about 300 million cases around the globe, and found in approximately 10% of children and youth below 18 years of age. The current statistical data reveals that the prevalence of Bronchial Asthma in the Middle East region is somewhat lower, varying between 5.6% in Saudi Arabia and 8.5% in Kuwait. In Iraq, approximately 200,000 patients per year with asthma are either hospitalized or treated in an Emergency room[1].

It is the need of the hour to find out a cost effective, therapeutically efficacious and safe herbal remedy for the management of bronchial asthma vis-à-vis Tamaka Shwasa. Keeping this in view the present study has been taken up and tried with a single drug Bharangi (Clerodendrum serratum) in the form of powder in a dose of 3 gms. after adding with equal amount of Sunthi (Zingiber officinalis) and administered internally with hot water twice a day after food and the results are encouraging.
