In Ayurveda, all organs of the body are interlinked with one another in a classic Yin-Yang fashion. The respiratory tract is no different.
All living beings “breathe” to survive. The air is vital because it supplies the essential elements for life, necessary for the proper functioning of the lungs, and most importantly, the heart. The need for Prana/air in the human body is far greater than that required by any other creature on earth, so there is a lot that goes into making sure we get sufficient amounts of good quality air.
But if you are not surrounded by a good quality environment in your area then respiratory diseases will affect your body system very easily.
Ayurveda regards respiratory diseases as a result of the imbalance between Kapha and Vata doshas. Kapha dosha is responsible for the lungs, respiration, and heart in Ayurveda. The sub-type of Kapha dosha that governs the respiratory system is Avlambaka or Alambuka. The lungs help control the flow of Udana Vata (one of the fundamental doshas) and Prana Vayu, which help control digestion, circulation, etc., in addition to breathing.
An imbalance in these doshas leads to acute and chronic respiratory problems such as;
- Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease,
- Pneumonia, and seasonal allergies.
(Udana Vayu is the Nasal Prana, this controls the flow of air into and out of the nasal cavity. It also governs speech, voice modulation, and the eyes)
Respiratory health is essential for survival and has become of great interest to scientists and doctors over the last few decades. This is mainly because of the increased awareness that respiratory health is a causative factor in many common diseases as well as due to mounting evidence that it is a vital component of one's overall state of wellbeing, which can be further enhanced by top-quality care.
Of all the systems and organs in the body, it is clear that respiratory health is high up on every person’s list of concerns. Blame it on global warming, polluted environments, erratic climatic changes, and many other factors; respiratory diseases are spreading like wildfire.
But luckily Ayurveda has a solution for everything, Ayurveda provides us with simple practices to make the appropriate changes in our daily lives.
