The Complete Ayurveda Guide on COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease)

A lung disease known as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, or COPD, causes less air to flow through the lungs. It is a serious issue that should never be put off in any way. It can be cured and treated with natural medicines, therapies, and treatments. 

Our COPD Ayurvedic Treatment employs a natural approach to permanently address the disease's underlying causes.

What is COPD?

The lungs become obstructed over time due to chronic inflammation in COPD, making it difficult for the patient to breathe. Bronchitis and Emphysema are the two most common conditions in COPD. The reason for Bronchitis is aggravation and limiting of the bronchial cylinder, which produces bodily fluid, and Emphysema obliterates the little alveoli and upsets the outward progression of air.

Ayurveda Perspective On COPD

COPD is categorized as a Pranavaha Srotas disease in Ayurveda. The imbalance of all three doshas—Vata, Pitta, and Kapha—is the most common cause of COPD. In COPD, Kapha is the primary dosha vitiation. As a result, the primary goal of treatment is to reestablish the equilibrium between these doshas.

COPD includes significant damage to the lungs the prominent symptoms of COPD are:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Wheezing, coughing 
  • Tightness in chest
  • Frequent colds and coughs
  • Weight loss
  • Lack of energy 
  • Swelling in the feet, legs, and ankles. 


A patient with COPD could require crisis clinical consideration if he has pale blue fingernails or lips, inconvenient breathing, and rapid heartbeats. Regardless, ignoring the side effects and deferring a visit to the doctor isn't consistent.

You should take COPD Ayurvedic Treatment for the best results if you experience these symptoms.

What Causes of COPD?

  • Chronic smoking
  • Cooking in poorly ventilated homes
  • Long-term exposure to chemicals, fumes, air pollution, and dust inhalation
  • Exposure to heavy amounts of second-hand smoke 
  • Genetic history of COPD or any other lung conditions


Types of COPD

COPD is an umbrella term used when you have one or more of these conditions-


This result from damage to your air sacs (alveoli) that destroys the walls inside them and causes them to merge into one giant air sac. It can’t absorb oxygen as well, so you get less oxygen in your blood. Air gets trapped in your lungs and you can’t breathe it out, so you feel short of breath.

Chronic bronchitis:

Hair-like fibres called cilia line your bronchial tubes and help move mucus out. When you have chronic bronchitis, you lose your cilia. This makes it harder to get rid of mucus, which makes you cough more, which creates more mucus.

Refractory asthma:

This type may also be called non-reversible. It doesn’t respond to normal asthma medications. However with the help of Ayurveda this condition can be managed naturally.

Consequences of COPD Untreated or ignored, COPD can result in several problems, including:

Diseases of the lungs: Numerous respiratory infections, including the flu and pneumonia, may result.

Heart Issues: Although the primary reason has not yet been determined, COPD is known to raise the risk of heart conditions like heart attacks.

Depression: If you have trouble breathing, it is difficult to enjoy life. Mental depression and anxiety are easily exacerbated by dealing with such a problem for an extended period.

Lung Cancer: Lung cancer is more common in people with COPD than in others.

High Blood Pressure in the Lung Arteries: Pulmonary hypertension results from elevated blood pressure in the lungs' arteries due to obstructions in airflow.

Detox is the Ayurvedic cleansing process for body, mind and emotions that helps you to create holistic health and well-being in your life. Digestive impurities such as mucus and metabolic toxin pile up in the intestine, liver, Blood veins and joints. They circulate throughout the entire body and plug up the works. Continuous build-up of these impurities causes physical and mental disorders and disease. Detox helps to clean out toxins. Marma points help to remove blockage and improve circulation.

Nidana Parivarjan, or lifestyle and diet adjustment, Shaman Chikitsa, or dosha pacification; and Shodhana Chikitsa, or bio purification, are all components of Ayurveda's COPD treatment.
