Abstract: Ayurveda and modern pathies both share almost similar view regarding Bronchial Asthma. In Ayurveda, Bronchial Asthma is co-related to Tamaka Shwasa.common symptoms such as Difficulty in breathing, production of wheezing sound, continuous coughing are told by both the pathies. Asthma can be defined as a Chronic Inflammatory Disease of the airways which develops under the influence of allergens, associated with bronchial hyper-responsiveness and reversible obstruction and bronchospasm. Both the pathies have considered it to be YAPYA i. e. One needs to follow pathya aahara and vihara throughout his lifetime inorder to avoid the VEGAVASTHA. Basically as per modern, BRONCHODILATERS and STEROIDS are used for the treatment whereas Ayurveda promotes VIRECHANA KARMA to be best treatment modality.
