Ayurveda / / August 12, 2017
Svasa , or dyspnea (shortness of breath) is defined as "awareness of breathing wrong."Shortness of breath may be only on exertion, and may be in its absence - are two types of dyspnea.Both conditions are caused by the movement of wool in unusual direction.This is due to the wool: by itself;due to obstruction by her kapha, which, in turn, caused, for example, or kaphogennoy food allergies;due to overexertion and fear.Svasa has the same set of reasons as cough, sore throat, and hiccups.All these disorders are in some sense manifestations of the same disease, differing only in the place of manifestation.
Ayurveda distinguishes five types of respiratory disorders: maha svasa (in which breathing rate is very high, and the person breathes loud and noisy as a bull), urdhva svasa (with a long exhalation), chinna svasa (breathing Cheyn-Stokes: rapid breathing is replaced by a full stop breathing, and this cycle takes about a minute), Tamaki svasa (asthma), kshudra svasa (dyspnea on exertion).The first
Asthma called Tamaki (dark) svasa because, according to the text, "she escalates in the dark."After sunset, patients feel that they are immersed in the ocean of the night, and feeling pressure on them, because they feel that they can not breathe enough of prana from the atmosphere.The fear generated by this feeling, aggravates the condition.It is characteristic that reduces spasms in a sitting position and amplified in the supine.Bronchial asthma has three subspecies: due to the extreme excitement kapha, kapha due to the extremely low and associated with Pitt.Since kapha involved in all three subspecies, even if this part is very small, asthma is called "born in the stomach", the main seat of kapha.
Bronchial asthma - one of those diseases (such as relapsing fever and epilepsy), which periodically "attack" on the person, and treatment during the attack differs from the treatment in between.During the attack, the doctor must first decide cleansing or sedation is more appropriate to the patient, for this he must assess the strength of the disease and the patient.With extremely excited Kapha purification can be carried out with the help of vomiting.For severe patients emetic therapy may be supplemented by a mild laxative, to ensure the free downward movement Apana, - if it is possible to normalize the Apana, the Prana and automatically seeks to normal.After vomiting appointed by the smoke.When asthma is useful to inhale the smoke manasshily (arsenic bisulfide) - it by a few thrown on the fire.When Kapha is very low, you can either pick it up or because their roots prana channel goes into the digestive tract and respiratory diseases because often associated with upward movement Apana, eliminate disruptions in breathing enema.
When cleaning is contraindicated, 50 ml of strong licorice tea with 30 ml of oil, "Narayana" and pectoral poultices usually bring relief.Breast poultices are important because after them the mucus easier to cough out.The ancient texts say that in asthma "poultice useful even to those who usually are harmful (eg, pregnant women), if applied at the right moment."Quick help can be saffron and honey, especially at high kapha.Inhalation of smoke dope frayed leaves removes almost any asthma attack.
Treatment between attacks depends on the cause of the excitation of the doshas and the intensity of the excitation.In extreme irritation kapha recommended «Svasa kuthara". This formulation contains kaddzhali, aconite, borax, manasshilu, black pepper and other plants.It can be taken under the tongue every fifteen minutes and during an attack of the disease.If you need stronger medicine, you can use composition «Chaturbhudzha Kalpa», which contains race sindoor, haritalu, manasshilu, golden basma and other components.
Other preparations include powders «Sitopaladi» and « Talisadi», Basma antler, mica or arch flower (Calotropis gigantea), amplified 64-fold treatment pippali (especially at very low kapha), jam "Chyavanprash» and «Agastya haritaki» (wool to the direction of movement back to normal), medicinal wines from dashamuly, pippali, Datura and ephedra, as well as compounds race sindoor.If it involved Apana, appointed powder «Hingvashtaka".
In between bouts should regularly practice yoga postures, and to do it under the supervision of a specialist.Breathing exercises are useful, but must be selected individually.All the causal factors, especially cold, heavy, fatty foods should be eliminated, and ginger and turmeric should be consumed in large quantities.Fear - a powerful causative factor, therefore, as with diarrhea and fever, the doctor's message about the success of the treatment is very important.It is necessary that with the advent of darkness mind remained quite strong and not afraid of a new attack.Reinforcing confidence measures, such as the practice of martial arts can help the patient get rid of the grip of fear.
By svasa close cough caused by irritation of smoke or dust, eating dry food, food hit in the respiratory tract, excessive physical activity and suppression of the natural desire to sneeze.As well as respiratory diseases, cough occurs due to the disruption of the normal "gait" (causeway) wool, so the prana vata tricked out through the nose and mouth with a sound which produces cracked bronze pot.Cough due to cotton - dry and finds attacks.From it becomes more difficult to breathe, there is pain in the chest, hoarseness and dry mouth.Cough due to Pitt, accompanied by symptoms of hot, sour or metallic taste in the mouth, dry mouth, thirst, headache and fever.Cough caused by kapha, accompanied by abundant mucus, nausea, indigestion, heaviness in the limbs, loss of taste sensation and headache.
To the usual cough remedies include powders «Sitopaladi» and «Talisadi», and jam or Vasa kantakari (Solanum xanthocarpum). Most drugs for the treatment of svasa can also be used, and a cough, hoarseness and hiccups.Cystic fibrosis-state of chronic respiratory insufficiency caused by increased viscosity of mucus in the lungs - also a form of svasa.Although this disease is genetic and therefore incurable, the state still manages to improve the methods and medicines, which are used in other forms of svasa.
