Bronchial asthma
When breathing is difficult

“My chest feels like it is being squeezed.” “I can hardly breathe out.” “I feel like I’m suffocating.”

This or a similar experience is what asthmatic patients report with regard to their excruciating attacks.

Although today asthma is rarely life threatening, it can produce great psychological strain. Asthma is characterized by narrowing of the airways in the lungs. An excessive reaction within the bronchia causes the inhaled air to be exhaled from the lungs only with great difficulty.

It doesn’t matter whether this is triggered by physical strain, allergens, work-related inhaling of various dusts or the recurring infections of chronic asthma.

What is the Vedic medicine point of view on bronchial asthma?

Bronchial asthma from an Ayurvedic point of view

According to the Maharishi Ayurveda approach, bronchial asthma starts with the loss of natural balance.

Metabolic residues develop continuously due to improper lifestyle. In the case of bronchial asthma, toxins (in Ayurveda called “Ama”) accumulate in the bronchia. Each asthma patient knows that stress and an unstable nervous system can serve as a trigger for the familiar symptoms.

In Ayurveda every patient is different and so each person’s bronchial asthma complaint varies. The Ayurvedic approach at our Centre is holistic.
