Abstract

Ayurveda is the science of life which deals with the prevention and cure of diseases. From the first breath of newly born till the last breath i.e, Shwasochhwasa Kriya is the sign of life. Any disturbance in this process leads to Shwasa Roga. Tamaka Shwasa is one of the important diseases of such disturbance. Shwasa is a Kapha-Vataja disease which is originated from Pittasthana. Tamaka Shwasa is very much similar to bronchial asthma in modern medicine which is a chronic disease of multifactorial origin. Ayurveda describes two type of management of all disease i.e. Shodhana and Shamana Chikitsa. In present scenario Panchakarma therapy is the best way to effectively and safely manage the condition without any specific side effects. It is one of the most effective and complete therapy in the management of the chronic disease such as Tamaka Shwasa (Bronchial Asthma). In Ayurvedic classics both Vamana and Virechana have been described specifically in the management of Tamaka Shwasa. Considering the Ayurvedic  concept of treatment of Tamaka Shwasa, in present study we have used Virechana therapy along with certain herbal preparation. In this study we concluded that the cases who were treated with herbal preparation along with Virechana got better relief than herbal preparation alone.
