1. Ginger and Honey Tea:
A classic Ayurvedic remedy, ginger and honey tea is known for its anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties. It helps to soothe the throat, reduce cough, and clear the respiratory passages. To make this tea, simply boil water with grated ginger, strain it, and add a spoonful of honey.
2. Turmeric Milk:
Turmeric is a potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant spice that can help alleviate respiratory issues. Drinking a warm glass of turmeric milk before bedtime can provide relief from cough, congestion, and sore throat.
3. Eucalyptus Steam:
Inhaling eucalyptus steam can help open up the airways and relieve congestion. Add a few drops of eucalyptus oil to a bowl of hot water, cover your head with a towel, and breathe in the steam for a few minutes.
4. Tulsi (Holy Basil) Tea:
Tulsi is revered in Ayurveda for its immune-boosting and respiratory health benefits. Drinking tulsi tea can help reduce inflammation, fight infections, and support the respiratory system.
5. Licorice Root Decoction:
Liquorice root is known for its expectorant and anti-inflammatory properties. Boil liquorice root in water to make a decoction, and drink it to soothe the throat and reduce cough.
6. Trikatu Churna:
Trikatu, a blend of ginger, black pepper, and long pepper, is a traditional Ayurvedic remedy for respiratory problems. Mixing a pinch of Trikatu churna with honey can help alleviate cough and clear congestion.

9. Detoxification therapies (Panchakarma):
Ayurveda emphasizes the importance of detoxifying the body to remove accumulated toxins that can contribute to respiratory issues. Ayushakti may offer detoxification therapies such as Panchakarma to cleanse the body and support respiratory health. Especially Nasya therapy involves the administration of herbal oils or powders through the nasal passages. This therapy can help clear the sinuses, reduce congestion, and improve respiratory function.
Ayushakti’s detoxification Panchkarma treatments are highly focused on relieving the root cause of any chronic problem by cleansing, repairing and rejuvenating the deeper tissues and cells in your body. Click here to check out our Panchkarma Detoxification Plan
10. Pranayama or yoga:
Pranayama, or yogic breathing exercises, are an integral part of Ayurveda and can be beneficial for improving lung function and respiratory health. Practices such as deep breathing, alternate nostril breathing, and bellows breath can help to clear the respiratory passages, increase lung capacity, and reduce the impact of air pollution on the respiratory system.
In conclusion, Ayurveda offers a treasure trove of natural remedies to combat respiratory problems caused by air pollution in the winter season. By incorporating these Ayurvedic home remedies into your daily routine, you can strengthen your respiratory system, alleviate symptoms, and promote overall well-being.
