Chronic Respiratory Condition Treatments

Herbal home-remedies with Ayurvedic dietary guidelines

Treatment details can be provided by appointment in Ojai CA. or by phone/Skype with herbal products mailed.


The respiratory system is a very important system in the human body, as it is our source of oxygen which is basically your life-force.  So even minor respiratory blockages indicated by symptoms such as snoring, dry or wet cough, occasional or chronic difficulty breathing, chronic nasal congestion, etc., are reducing our energy levels and should be taken seriously.  If ignored, more serious respiratory condtions such as asthma, bronchitis, respiratory allergies, chronic coughing and even respiratory infections can result.  The good news is that with minor changes in the diet and the correct herbal formulas and/or teas these condtions can be quickly managed and ultimately resolved. 


Respiratory congestion and difficulting breathing as in asthma is one of those health problems that Ayurveda theory believes is created by a buildup of toxins in the digestive tract. These toxins are carried through the body's channels into the area of the chest and lungs where they irritate the lining of the airways and create inflammation.  Toxins also begin to clog the channels of circulation that leads to the body's tissues – so cells are not properly nourished and even more impurities collect.  With such a large accumulation of toxins in the tissues, the body's natural defenses that react against impurities are pushed into overdrive. This reaction results in the lungs filling up with fluid and restricted airwaves.

An imbalanced nervous system can also make the respiratory symptoms even worse. Physical, emotional and mental stress is known to cause relapses of asthma and make symptoms worse.

The protocol

The protocol includes specific supplement recommendations, dietary guidelines, an allergy tea based on nettle leaf, a customized formula of Ayurvedic herbal formula and instructions for nasal cleaning with a neti pot.   Often requires liver detoxification and sometimes Emesis or Vomiting Therapy (Vamana) which is very helpful for very chronic conditions.   (Acute asthmatic attacks can be dangerous and should be treated by a Doctor)

Acute wheezing is treated by bronchodilator herbs.  Long-term treatment requires tonification to rebuild the energy of the lungs. There are even special ayurvedic treatments involving the smoking of bronchodilating and anti-spasmodic herbs.

Diet and Lifestyle: Avoid smoking and exposure to dusty and cold air. Drinking herbal teas or sipping lukewarm water with honey is helpful. To avoid ama (mucus) formation, have freshly prepared warm meals at regular intervals. Eat less than the full capacity of the stomach. Heavy foods like dairy products, fried foods, pickles, cold foods and white rice should be avoided.
