Todays topic for discussion:  Irritative cough…..#ayurveda approach

Group 2:
Dr. Dipak Shirude: Irritation always stands on Vat .. So ..  A right choice of snehpan
Vatshamak kalpas like Dashmool katutraya quath, Dashmool rasyanam lehya,
Combination of sitopaladi . yashtimadhu . karkatshrngi with honey works sure…
A right choice of Aushadh grahan kala is also important as same medicine doesn't work if Aushadh grahan kala (intake time of medicine) is ignored ..

Group 3:
Minoo Parabia: Throat mucosa responds immediately to change in weather, too sweet, pungent or sour  food, strong smell, cold wind, smoke; short of breath etc.
Mix salt and turmeric in a bootle full of water. Keeo it handy on wash basin. Gargle the throat repeatedly.Keep ganthoda- peeprimool in mouth. Sip water. Keep throat moist.

Group 5:
Vd. Dhruti Kagrana: Irritative cough:- Nidan:- Ruksha Anna Sevan, Dhum , Dust etc...
Dosha:- vata(Apan,Prana,Udana), kapha
Dushya:- Rasa
Sathansamshraya :- Galapradesh
Chikitsa:- Vasa,Sunthi,Kantakari,Yashtimadhu,  Shitopaladi churna is useful.

Group 6:
Dr. Hardik- MD: Irritative cough is only purva roop of kasa, Shukpurna galasyata
Because of this pt try to remove kapha from gala (throat) or talu or kanth pradesh by coughing. So samprapti ghatak are same to kasa. In this type of condition simple (vata-kapha) gud (jeggary) + adraka (ginger) or eladi vati or (pitaj) yashtimadhu ghanavati we can use.

Vd. Prerak Shah: I think 'Irritative cough' is having some relation with lungs too.
Usually general practitioners use broncho-dilator, mucolytic agents and expectorants together to treat it.  That's symptomatic treatment.

Vd. Jignesh Thakkar : 1)fooddigestionmore ras+litrle kafa.                        2).foodmandagniindigestionlittle ras +more kafa.
So behind kas main treatment should be concentrated on jathragni mandh. Kapha is mala of rasa. so accept vataj and kshataj langhan is best medicine. And see samprapti अधः प्रतिहतो वायु। It means vata obstructed below. so for destroying this we have to prescribe vatanulomak drug. and by above mentioned theory i have used castor oil +sunthi in vatik kas. got wonderful result. usally dry cough(vatik kas) is challenging for allopathy. and it is too frequent that Patient get tired .and pain is also symptom of vayu.so in vatik kasa by coughing patient get pain in head and shoulder, chest, back etc.so in vatik kas snehpan is best medicine and as a anulomak drug castor oil is drug of choice. sunthi is also vat kapha shamak. where everything fails in vatik kasa- use castor oil+sunthi….sometimes at home Patient takes haridra for kasa but vatik kas get aggravated by ruksha guna of haridra. so drug of choice is not haridra in vatik. we should educate people.

Vd. Bhavesh Thakkar: Trikatu + kantakari + ghee in sushka kasa -vata dominant

Kantakari + sitopaladi + ghee in pitta dominent sushka kasa. …Vyosadi vati and laxmivilas ras in pratishyay……Pachan is very important as said earlier in all cough. Agnikumar ras is also good in kaf- vat conditions.

Use of Shallaki(Boswellia serrata) in the treatment of various diseases (#ayurvedic approach)
