Abstract

Tamak Shwasa has been elaborately described in almost all ayurvedic text. Tamak Shwasa is a troublesome major disorder of pranvaha srotas. In modern medicine it is closely resembles with Bronchial Asthma. Bronchial Asthma is a chronic inflammatory disease of airways that is characterised by responsiveness of the tracheo-bronchial tree to a multiplicity of stimuli. It is manifested clinically by paroxysms of dysponea, cough and wheezing.In today’s stressful modern urbanized living, incidence of asthma is considerably increasing. India has an estimated 15-20 million asthmatics. In contemporary modern science, management of Bronchial Asthma is carried out with usage of bronchodilators, leukotriene antagonist, mast cell stablizers and corticosteroids. Long lasting usageof these drugs produces adverse affects & also reduces the effectiveness of the therapy.So there is need of safe and effective medicine in Ayurveda for the treatment and management of Tamak Shwasa. In Charak Samhita the principle of management of Tamak shwasa is based on Vata-Kaphahara. Shatyadi yoga mentioned by Acharya Charaka for shwasa chikitsa, is adopted for the treatment of Bronchial Asthma.
