COPD from the point of view of Ayurveda
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is a chronic inflammatory lung disease and is known as COPD. This is a respiratory condition caused by long-term inhalation of substances characterized by airflow inflammation that damages and irritates the lungs. It results in difficulty in breathing, cough, wheezing respiration, and sputum production. Without proper oxygen it becomes hard for system to sustain. Smoking cigarettes is one of the most significant causes of COPD. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease increases the risk of lung cancer, heart diseases and other life-threatening conditions. The oxygen we inhale passes into the blood vessels and enters the bloodstream. The carbon dioxide (the waste product of metabolism) exhales. Llungs rely on the natural elasticity of the air sacs and bronchial tubes to force the air out of the body. Due to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, bronchial tubes lack flexibility and over-expand. Thus, some air traps in the lungs even after you exhale. COPD also causes decreased immunity to infections and cold.
