Todays topic for discussion: Cardiac Asthma...Can we treat it by Ayurveda?
Dr. J. T. Contractor Herbal Therapist: If tried rejuvenator organic alkaloids to eliminate free radicle & bring back body metabolism to its virginity may b the ultimate way of treating any ailment to some extent at least
Dr. Sudhir shah (neuro): Arjun is the root for treating cardiac asthma . Jawahar mohra may do wonders
Vd. Kinshuk Hirpara: Arjun with combination kravyad rasa twice a day
Vd. Milan Prajapati: Kanakaasav
Minoo Parabia: Cardiac asthma is the asthma resulting through cardiac insufficiency. Therefore, the drugs used for true asthma are contraindicated. Date stones, Arjun, and other known cardiac stimulants are good. However, Vasa, in association with tulsi and peeprimool were found helpful. People following drastic dieting as a wait loss programme were found more susceptible to this.
Vd. Bhavesh Thakkar: Cardiac Asthma : Arjun Kseerpak
Prior to administrating the aushad, Snehan svedan, dipan pachana etc should be done according to Dosha.
Vd. Piyush Prajapati: How can v understand cardiac asthma as ayurved!??
Vd. Pankaj Chhayani: Cardiac asthma is nothing but its symptom of cardiac problem..
Vd. Piyush Prajapati: Cardiac asthma may be connect with Raktgat avrodh by kapha dosha which causes vata prakopa and then kapha will be dry b’cz of vata prakopa so avrodha becomes more and more.. It's also aavran condition.. I think Lasun kshirpak is faster beneficial then Arjun kshirpak. Lasun oil ni Hradbasti with saindhav is highly effective acc to me..
Vd. Pankaj Chhayani: Heart failure is common cause of cardiac asthma..Valvular problem, heart muscle dysfunction (after MI)and sometime renal artery stenosis may cause cardiac asthma...Heart failure(left heart) ➡back pressure to lungs➡pulmonary congestion(oedema)➡fluild accumulation between respiratory basement membrane and pulmonary cappilary➡difficulty in gas exchange➡breathlessness➡called Cardiac asthma...treatment should be concentrated on two target points..1) increase heart strength➡ give +ve ionotropic drugs digitalis(hratpatri) or Shringa bhasma(horn ash), abhraka, arjuna, ➡increased tension ➡produce more pressure to over come total peripheral resistance➡eject more blood into circulation➡releive pulmonary congestion➡get releif in breathlessness....2) Give diuretics Punarnavadi (boerhavia diffusa) kwath➡total bloos volume reduces➡venous volume reduces➡venous return reduces➡cardiac load reduces➡back pressure to heart reduces➡➡➡➡➡
[10/30/2015, 3:35 PM] Vd. Pankaj Chhayani: Back pressure to lung reduces➡relieve pulmonary congestion➡releive breathlessness...Punarnava is also in Kasahara dashemani...also manage associated complains, give laxative in case of constipation...
Vd. Piyush Prajapati: Dasmoolarist with Hemgarbh in small quantities is best emergency drug for any type of Hradvikar. Just give it muhurmuhu..
Vd. Pankaj Chhayani: Dashmoola is shothhara..it will reduce pulmonary oedema... Vata kaphagna as well as tridosh hara...difficult to get brihad panchmoola...Charaka has suggested Dashmoola, alcohol(madira) and cedrus deodara(dev daru) water as a drink in Swasa... Swasa is mainly vata kaphatmaka and dashmoola is also good vata kapha hara...so it has good effect in asthma...Khamire gav jaban ambari (unani medicine) is very useful where heart is too weak in cardiac asthma..
