Asthma is a chronic lung disease mainly caused due to the inflammation in the airways which affects millions of people worldwide. The airways tend to swell making it narrower and is filled with mucus. The presence of mucus restricts the airflow which eventually leads to shortness of the breath and continuous coughing, wheezing, and tightness in the chest.

Ayurveda’s take on asthma

Based on Ayurvedic teachings, the human body is segregated into three doshas. In asthma, the kappa dosha is responsible and if detected at an earlier stage can be treated effectively. However, it is important to understand that if detected at a later stage, the only way to treat asthma is by managing it. Kapha is also important to maintain the overall balance within the body. The Ayurvedic treatments that deal with asthma focus on eliminating Kapha within the lungs.


Avoid food items that may trigger asthma including dairy products and animal products. Moreover, bananas and food items with high sugar content should also be avoided to ensure asthma does not trigger further.

The best way to deal with asthma is by rubbing your chest with a paste made of rock salt and mustard oil. In addition, Sitopalaadi choorna should be also be consumed combined with honey. The Kapha kartari tackles and overcomes the problems related to Kapha and over a period of time, asthma and its symptoms will subside.
