AYURVEDIC TREATMENT for CHILDHOOD ASTHMA
Children with recurrent cough, wheezing, chest tightness or shortness of breath may have one or more forms of asthma.Left untreated, asthmatic children often have less stamina than other children, or avoid physical activities to prevent coughing or wheezing. Sometimes they will complain that their chest hurts or that they can not catch their breath. Colds may go straight to their chest. Or, they may cough when sick, particularly at night.Asthma has multiple causes, and it is not uncommon for two or more different causes to be present in one child. Asthma is more than wheezing. Coughing, recurrent bronchitis and shortness of breath, especially when exercising, are also ways that asthma appears.
Developing an overly Sensitive Immune System generally plays a role. The underlying causes of childhood asthma aren't fully understood. Some factors thought to be involved include:
The blocked bronchioles in turn produce symptoms of asthma:
As per Ayurveda, asthma in children can be of two types: Beeja dosha (genetic), or Sahaja (acquired). Sahaja type of asthma is easy to treat, whereas Sahaja type of asthma is caused due to genetic causes (beeja dosha) wherein there is a history of asthma in the family, is difficult to treat. In some cases, it has been observed that after 8th or 9th year of age the problem disappears .This type of asthma may have been caused due to the imbalance of kapha dosha. Kapha is one of the three biological energies or doshas (Vata, Pitta, and Kapha) responsible for health and disease in every human being. It is a mucus like substance, which is dense, heavy, firm, stable, slow, thick, sticky, wet, clear and cold in nature. Imbalanced kapha due to various causes accumulates in the lungs and leads to blockage of bronchioles.
