Ayurvedic Perspective on the Respiratory System

The respiratory system is a vital combination of organs and tissues that facilitate breathing, and from an Ayurvedic point of view, breathing is considered life.

Importance of "Prana"
  • Ayurveda believes that "prana" leaves the navel, passes through the neck to absorb nectar from the air, and then returns to nourish the body.
  • Respiratory diseases affect each of us throughout our lives, and symptoms such as coughing, allergies, and asthma can indicate an imbalance in life..
How Ayurveda Can Help Treat Respiratory Problems

A consultation with an Ayurvedic practitioner can help to heal the respiratory system by addressing imbalances in Kapha, Vata, and Agni, the digestive fire.

  • The first step in Ayurvedic treatment may include "cleansing" therapies such as Vamana (vomiting) and Nasyam (nasal drops) to alleviate aggravated doshas.
  • Along with oral medications, the treatment recommended by an Ayurvedic doctor can greatly enhance the management of chronic respiratory conditions, which necessitates time and patience.
Ayurvedic Advice for Respiratory System Health

Respiratory problems signify fear or various states of aggression against oneself or the world. Bronchitis represents undisclosed anger and claims, a stressful environment, and conflicts. A runny nose is seen as "tears of the soul," while problems in the respiratory system can affect various parts of the body, including the lungs, hands, arms, fingers, ribs, and immune system.

Ayurveda offers a holistic approach to treating respiratory problems, targeting the root cause of the ailment rather than treating its symptoms. By addressing imbalances in Kapha, Vata, and Agni, and reducing the number of toxins present in the body, Ayurvedic treatments can help to restore respiratory system health.
