BRONCHITIS (SHWASA PRANALI SHOTH)
Bronchitis is a health condition which is characterized by inflammation of the bronchial tubes that carry air to the lungs. This disease is common in cold climates but may strike in other climatic conditions as well. Allergic patients are more susceptible to bronchitis.
The affected patient of bronchitis suffers from the inflammation of mucous membrane of the bronchi to which phlegm adheres, and there is difficulty in expelling it. The viscidity of phlegm makes it difficult to breath and the lungs are deprived of air. If the bronchitis reaches advanced stage, it may result in high temperature, breathlessness and loss of appetite.
According to Ayurveda, bronchitis is ascribed to impairment of the digestive processes. Thus the remedies selected also help to restore the digestive balance.
Symptoms of acute bronchitis can be listed as follows:
- Dry and hacking cough shifted to mucus carrying cough
- Fever and weariness
- Tightness in chest
- Breathlessness and sore throat
- Headache and other body aches and pains
- Blocked nose and sinuses
You should immediately consult a doctor if you have above symptoms for more than three weeks and fever for over three days, especially if you have underlying heart or lung condition.
There are various reasons that lead to clogging of the bronchial tubes; some of them are listed here:
- Dusty conditions
- Cold atmosphere
- Wrong feeding habits
- High intake of white bread, meat, sugar porridge etc.
- Viruses such as influenza A and B – Commonly known as flu
Warm herbal teas made using honey, cinnamon and thyme can really help with the congestion. Gargling with salt water will also help in cutting the mucus in the throat that blocks your breathing. Other natural remedy for bronchitis includes ginger, black pepper and orange juice. Consume them for two to three times in a day.

The cold weather does not suit me and I used to be down with congestion and bronchitis every other winter. Then finally with the help of medicines and treatment from Family Care Clinic I have better resistance to the disease and I have not suffered from even cough or flu for many years now.
The medicine prescribed by the doctors here did help in temporarily subsiding the cough and cold, but it relapsed by sudden change in weather. And the breathing became more and more difficult gradually. Thanks to the effective treatment of Dr. Ritu, my bronchitis is cured for good.
