Abstract

DIET AND LIFE STYLE MODIFICATION IN TAMAKA SHAVASA WITH SPECIAL REFERENCE TO BRONCHIAL ASTHMA

Acharya Balkrishan, Dr.Vijay Kumar*, Dr Sarvesh Kumar Agrwal Pandey Awadhesh, Pathak Meenakshi S.N

ABSTRACT

Tamaka shvasa is described as a Yapya disease in our Ayurvedic classics. The aetiology, pathogenesis, clinical features and prognosis of Tamaka Shvasa are same as in bronchial asthma in modern literature. In nutshell the factors responsible for Tamaka Shvasa are dust-fumes (allergy), Vishama Ahara, Kapha-Vata aggravating Ahara-Vihara etc. The objective of present work is to develop a module of diet and life style suitable for the patient of Tamaka Shvasa. The study of different Ayurvedic and modern literature has been done to fulfill the objective of study. On the basis of literature and logics a module of diet and life style has been prepared for asthmatics. In bronchial asthma trapped air in lungs leads to flattening of diaphragm. This produces GI symptom like anorexia, easy satiety, bloating etc, so patient do not take proper diet to fulfill the energy demand. Thus Ahara of the patient should be Laghu, easily digestible with high caloric value, Agnivardhaka and Kapha-Vata alleviating. Patient should avoid the triggering factors like dust, pollen, smoke, cold etc. If the patient follows above modifications in diet and life style throughout life the seasonal attack of bronchial asthma can be prevented and chronic asthmatic can be relieved from further progress.

Keywords: Tamaka Shvasa, Yapya, bronchial asthma.
