What Is COPD And Ayurvedic Treatment For COPD?

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is an accumulation of progressive lung diseases.

COPD is defined as difficulty in breathing accompanied by wheezing sound due to bronchial spasm. It can be fully controlled or treated by proper diet, exercise, pranayama (breathing exercises) and by herbal formulations such as:

  • Thylophora Indica Asthmatica
  • Adhatoda Vasica Nees
  • Solanum Surattense
  • Clerodendrram se Rratum
  • Cassia Occidentalis etc.

Additionally, you can take Ayurvedic medicines for COPD as they are natural and do not cause any side effects.

What Are The Symptoms And Early Signs Of COPD?

  • Occasional shortness of breath, especially after exercise
  • Mild but recurrent cough
  • Needing to clear your throat frequently

Symptoms can get progressively more detrimental and harder to ignore. As the lungs get further damaged, you may experience:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Wheezing
  • Chest tightness
  • Chronic cough, with or without mucus
  • Frequent colds, flu, or other respiratory infections
  • Lack of energy

Immediate medical care is needed if:

  • You have bluish or gray fingernails or lips since this indicates low oxygen levels in the blood
  • You have trouble catching your breath and are unable to talk
  • You feel confused, muddled, or faint
  • Your heart is racing

What are the types of COPD?

There are 3 types of COPD:

  • Emphysema: Damage to air sacs in your lungs leave you short of breath
  • Chronic bronchitis: When you have coughing, shortness of breath, and mucus that lingers for at least 3 months for 2 years in a row
  • Refractory asthma: This type may also be known as nonreversible. It doesn't respond to normal asthma medicines

What Are The Main Causes Of COPD Disease?

Cigarette smoking: In developed countries, the single biggest cause of COPD is cigarette smoking. Approximately 90 percent of people who have COPD are smokers or smoked in the past.

Pre-existing medical conditions: Your risk of COPD is greater if you have had a history of asthma and smoke.

Exposure to pollution: Individuals can also develop COPD if you're exposed to chemicals and fumes in the workplace. Long-term exposure to air pollution and inhaling dust can also lead to COPD. In developing nations such as India along with tobacco smoke, homes are often poorly ventilated, forcing families to breathe fumes from burning fuel used for cooking and heating.

Genetic predisposition: There may be a genetic predisposition in individuals which may lead to a greater risk of developing COPD. COPD isn't contagious.

Lifestyle changes

Certain lifestyle changes may also help ease your symptoms or provide relief.

  • Stop smoking, if you smoke. Your doctor can suggest appropriate products or support services to help you.
  • Avoid secondhand smoke and chemical fumes from factories.
  • Consume healthy food.
  • Exercise regularly, after checking with your doctor.

How our Ayurvedic Doctors for COPD helps in its treatment?

At Arogyadham, we aim to offer an effective COPD treatment using the following techniques:

  • Nidanaparivarjana which includes modification of lifestyle and diet
  • Shamana, a pacification treatment
  • Shodhana, which is a bio-purificatory method.

Bio-purification needs to be performed regularly to capture and degrade pollutants. It helps in drying up excess mucus secretion in the respiratory system which can cause a blockage. Additionally, Nasya therapy can prevent the membrane lining the nasal cavity from coming in contact with pollutants.

Exercising regularly and maintaining a normal and healthy body weight can help in preventing COPD. Ayurveda recommends following healthy habits like waking up early and drinking a glass of warm water on an empty stomach to prevent COPD.

Ayurveda promotes the intake of a healthy diet which is low in saturated fat and rich in fruits and vegetables. Whole-grain foods are recommended. It is beneficial to consume vegetables which are pungent, salty, hot, and light such as gourd, bottle gourd, spinach, methi, garlic, ginger, bitter gourd, sponge gourd, drumstick, and pulses like green gram and horse gram. Tomato, cauliflower, potatoes, preparations of rice flour, sweets, curd, whole milk, black gram, coconut oil, fermented and sour foods, cold drinks, and refrigerated foods must be avoided.

The life expectancy of COPD patients can vary greatly and depends on factors such as the severity of airflow obstruction, a patient’s smoking history and overall health. On average, patients with COPD live 5 to 14 years following diagnosis, depending on the stage. To determine a patient’s survival rate, doctors use the BODE index to measure 4 different factors — body mass index, airway obstruction, dyspnea (a patient’s degree of breathlessness) and exercise tolerance.
