Abstract

Bronchial asthma is one of the commonest repiratory disorders prevalent all over thr world. It is more common in industrialised countries and effects 5% of the population. It affects all age groups and mortality rate is increasing rapidly in past few years. The word asthma derived from a Greek word meaning ‘gasp for breath’. Since 20thcentuary it was seen as a unique illness characterized by ‘spasmodic afflictions of the bronchial tubes’. Its heterogenous pathophysiology shows transient increase in resistance of airways, reduction in forced expiratory capacities, Hyperinflation of lungs and increased load of breathing. In Ayurveda bronchial asthma shows resemblance with Tamaka Shwasa a type of Shwasaroga. Today asthma is introducing as a chronic inflammatory disease of airways and pathophysiology of this disease is unclarified yet. Inspite of unmatched growth and developments in contemporary world, there is still no such ideal drug which can control asthma and its complications completely. Hence to develop safer and more effective drug, a hypothetical study has been planned using a herbomineral formulation prepared in the form of Gutika i.e Bhagottar Gutika. The article reviews each ingredient of the formulation parallely with symptomology of asthma and also assesses the effects of this formulation in encountering basic pathology of the disease.
