Panchakarma treatments include Vamana, Virechana, Nasya, Basti and Raktamokshana all of which help cure deep rooted illness. It eliminates excess Kapha from the body and congestion in the respiratory tract, which according to ayurveda is the cause of bronchial asthma. Panchakarma can also treat skin disorders, joint disorders and constipation.

Curejoy Expert Dipti Mothay Explains:

Asthma is caused because of allergies and chronic inflammation in bronchial tubes and lungs. Panchakarma therapy is one of the best and most recommended treatment for Asthma especially Bronchial Asthma. A study at the Institute of Science, Technology and Public Policy at Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa in collaboration with a special laboratory at Colorado University demonstrated that classical Panchakarma Treatment eliminated up to 50% of the detectable toxins in the blood, an important contributing factor for Asthma.

Panchakarma

Panchakarma is Ayurveda’s primary purification and detoxification treatment. Panchakarma means “five therapies”. These 5 therapeutic treatments are: Vamana, Virechana, Nasya, Basti and Raktamokshana. The series of these five therapies help remove deep rooted stress and illness-causing toxins from the body while balancing the Doshas (energies that govern all biological functions). Panchakarma has proven to be very effective in treating medical conditions such as skin disorders, paraplegia, hemiplegia, joint disorders, digestive disorders, constipation and asthma.

Why is Panchakarma recommended for Bronchial Asthma?

According to Ayurveda, imbalance in Kapha Dosha, impacting both respiratory and gastro-intestinal systems, causes Bronchial Asthma. Since Panchakarma treatment removes excess Kapha collected in the body and decongests the respiratory tract, it is the treatment of choice for all Bronchial Asthma patients.

Panchakarma and Yoga

Asthmatic patients can derive even greater benefits by combining Panchakarma and Yoga. Asanas (Yoga exercises) like Sukhasana, Surya Namaskar and Matsyendrasana help in improving lung ability. Pranayama, specifically Anuloma Viloma (regulated inhalation and exhalation procedure) is a powerful and highly effective technique to improve lung ability and functioning.
