In Sanskrit Asthma means “SVASA ROGA.” Asthma is a chronic condition in which inflammation causes the bronchial tubes to swell and narrow the airway passages of lungs. This airway inflammation might be ranging from mild to life-threatening. Asthma is a condition where a person can die instantaneously. In conventional terms, “Difficulty in breathing is due to the allergic reaction triggered in the lungs.” Mostly, Asthma is the combination of Genetic and environmental factors.

The genetic way of acquiring Asthma is possible when either of your parents or any of your maternal or paternal families has the same condition. Environmental factors include Air pollution and allergies. Generally, air flows from your nose through the small airway passages and fills up the lungs with oxygen. When an allergy trigger in the air passage, it gets difficult in pumping the air. It results in the Asthma “attack.”
