Pollution and bad air quality around us has resulted in an increase of Asthma cases with every passing year. So much so that Asthma is becoming a very common ailment and a major threat to the younger generation. Even though Asthma is categorized as a mere breathing ailment, it is actually a chronic disease which claims many human lives. Though it has become a critical health issue nowadays, modern healthcare does not have a proper cure for asthma. This is where Ayurveda comes in, and suggests ways to keep Asthma in check.
Garlic: Regular intake of garlic has positive effects on people suffering from asthma, especially effective in case of people whose asthma is at an initial stage.
Tulsi: A very beneficial and sacred herb, it helps people affected by asthma. Consuming ground black pepper with tulsi leaves can keep asthma in check. Also, grinding tulsi leaves with water and eating it with honey is recommended.
Banana: Asthmatic patients are advised to consume Banana in a specific way, as advised by the physician.
Ajwain: Taking a steam of hot water infused with ajwain is very soothing.
Turmeric & honey: Consuming a paste of turmeric and honey in small quantities ensures that the asthma attacks become less frequent. Even the fragrance of honey gives much relief.
Though such remedies are proven over a period of time, it is advised that any treatment be taken under medical supervision. Itoozhi Ayurveda is a leading Ayurvedic Hospital in Kerala and conducts lifestyle therapies.
