Asthma is well documented in ancient ayurvedic texts. In sanskrit, asthma is known as swasa roga. Swasa means “breathing in and out, ” and roga means “ disease.” According to the ancient ayurvedic text, the charak samhita, there are five types of asthma: maha swasa, urdhva swasa, chinna swasa, tamaka swasa & kshudra swasa. Among these five types first three are not curable. 'Tamak-shwas is controllable and is difficult to cure. The last one is curable.
While there is no medication that can fully cure asthma, there are two general classes of asthma medications: quick-relief and long-term control medications. Generally short-acting, inhaled bronchodilators and anti-inflammatories are used to relieve occasional mild asthma symptoms as they occur. Bronchodilators work by opening up or dilating constricted airways, while anti-inflammatories reduce inflammation.
In this process, whatever we give to the patients in the large doses, is being given in smaller doses. The same medicaments are given to the patients when they are hungry. The whole crux is to pacify the doshas instead of expelling them.
